How about a bonus post today? The Papertrey Ink designers were challenged to use the new Beautiful Beads paper and die collection to create a couple of extra projects for you this month. I created a gift set perfect for the birthday girl! It started with the Shape Up Series: Cupcake die which was die cut from strips of the Beautiful Beads paper cut using the Beautiful Beads die and then just woven together with a bit of washi tape here and there securing pieces in place.
I didn't adhere the cupcake base to the bottom of the cupcake completely because I wanted to create a pocket where I could insert the little gift item. Some aqua pom pom trim dressed up the top edge of the base and then a strip of Limeade Ice Grosgrain finished it off very simply.
Here you can catch a better glimpse of the woven die cut pieces...I love all of the fun patterns available in the Beautiful Beads paper collections.
I created a coordinating tag which I tied to a small glassine bag using the Tag Sale #2 die, the new Do Me a Favor and Peace, Love & Joy stamp sets, and the Fancy Flourishes set. The flower is die cut using Limeade Ice and the Flower Fusion Stem die and the Heart-2-Heart #3 die and Autumn Rose felt.
Inside the glassine bag....a simple bracelet created using the very same paper and dies as on the cupcake, a few beads, and small buttons. These little paper beads are the funnest project....can't wait to try a few out with my little one...she'll love creating some of her own.
Thanks for stopping by!
You MUST check out what the other designers have created for you using these new products....I am such an amateur!
