It's hard to believe that it's friday already... the end of a really fun and crafty week for me. I had the chance to clean up and get a few things organized and in the process found this fun paper from Echo Park to use with one of the New Vintage Treasure dies. It's called "Brilliante Rondelle" and I made both a card and a mini box with the dies and it was so easy to do.
For my card i used a white square base and layered the hemstitch square with aqua first and then cut the outermost circle in a print. Over that i layered a thin green stripe and then cut the center die in white and popped it up with 3D foam dots. This set came with some fun tags so i picked this cute little one with a monkey on it and finished it with a seam binding bow and button with the matching green. You can see below that prints are easy to use if you make sure they are small enough.
My nephew is having a birthday next month and this will be perfect to give him.
And then i had some left over paper and this cute little chipboard box i got from Micheal's Craft store so i cut small pieces for the outside and front of the box and then added that same white die piece under the tag for the front. This i am going to save for another friend who is having a baby boy soon and i can add a gift card along with a few other goodies. I might even have to come up with a cute bag to match it.
So you all need to go through your papers this week and find some fun ones that you can
make up a few gifts for the months ahead. And you may be surprised to find that Becca's dies work
with all kinds of papers.
