I wanted to play with some of the new things I had pre-ordered from the Spring Mini Catalog and yesterday I did that, but by the time I got things made and then pics taken and ready to go I ran out of steam since Blogger is still on the fritz so I didn't get them posted last night. So here I am now.
Remember I showed you several days ago the tip jar I made for my daughter? Well I used another popcorn container and covered it with some of the Tea for Two DSP. Then added a Soda Pop Tops on page 24 of the catalog. Yes, they cooridinate with the Collage Curios stamp set. Cool huh? I took the Soda Pop Tops (well here in Michigan we would just call them pop bottle tops *Ü*) and I flattened it by running it through the Big Shot. The sandwich used is no tabs on the multi-purpose platform, a cutting pad, pop top face up and the another cutting pad. Run it through your Big Shot and presto! You have a flat Soda Pop Top. Now I didn't want to waste any of that beautiful paper so when I traced and cut my pieces to cover the top of the container I ended up with little wedges of paper which I turned into beads to add to the ends of my linen thread. I know by now you are saying to yourself she is a genius! Applause, applause!!! LOL! I used the new 7/16" Natural Trim Ribbon to cover the seam where the two papers came together. You will notice I added a little Primrose Petals ink to it because I accidently tumbled the container over and you guessed it, right into the open ink pad so I proceeded to add some here and there on the ribbon. Gives it that shabby chic look.
Thanks for stopping by!
