I hope that your weekend was wonderful! Mine was pretty busy. I had some work to do with United and then was home to celebrate my youngest’s birthday yesterday. Made lots of Whoopie Pie Cookies for him to take to school today to celebrate with his friends.
I have another of my Leadership Display projects to share today. This one used the Petal Parade stamp set combined with the Sweet Sorbet DSP to create a fun little treat container.
I love mini paint cans and the new Sale-a-bration (SAB) products make one so fun to decorate. I started by taking a print from the Sweet Sorbet DSP and wrapping it around the can. I cut it narrow enough to fall right under the little handle attachment places. The DSP is attached using Sticky Strip. Then I added on some Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffled Ribbon which is attached using Multipurpose Glue. Already super cute if you leave it at that! But I could not stop, lol! I cut out some flowers using the Fun Flowers Die using my Big Shot and some more of the paper from Sweet Sorbet.
In order to give the flowers a little more dimension, all I did was spritz them with a bit of water and form them on top of the cap of my Multipurpose Glue. Once dry, they keep their shape. So easy but it makes a difference! Then using the twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory pack I started working on the flower center. I simply wrapped the twine around two fingers until I thought it was thick enough. Pulled it off my fingers and tied in the middle with another piece of twine. Cut the looped ends to the desired length and fluffed. I attached it to the flower using Crystal Effects as glue. After removing the handle, I took more twine and wrapped the handle. A Glue dot at the beginning and end does the trick for holding it in place and then re-attach the handle. I thought a fun tag would complete it so I stamped using the Petal Parade set using the colors in the paper (Crisp Cantaloupe and Pool Party) then cut out the tag with my Chalk Talk Framelits. A little banner made with Oh Goodie (carried over from the Holiday Catalog) and a Vintage Faceted Button tied with a little more twine to finish. The would be pretty for so many spring occasions and not hard to make a bunch of them!
I hope you like this one. I hope to be back a little later today with a bonus project (hint…it will be on the Stampin’ Up Blog first). Definitely back tomorrow with the latest Artisan Wednesday Wow. The team will be giving you details on the projects shown in the Stampin’ Up Facebook Gallery last Friday.
