Happy Halloween everyone! Our girls are so excited about going trick-or-treating, I love seeing the excitement on their little faces. I have to admit, it makes me a little emotional watching them go up to the doors all by themselves to get the treats. I know, I'm a sap ;) Ok, enough babble, on to what you guys are here for in the first place lol!
ETA- Tomorrow, I will be announcing the Featured Designer! The Featured Designer will get to work with me on designing a stamp set of their choice. To pick a winner, I will use a random number generator to chose from the customers that ordered in the month of Oct.
I wanted to share with you a little gift basket that I put together using this set. Which brings us to Dollar Find Friday! The tutorial that I will be showing you is how to decorate these clear top tins to turn them into a mint holder/ornament.
Paper (DP, Pink Pirouette, Very vanilla)
Tins (3 pk at Dollar Tree)
Crop o dile
Clear embossing powder
Punches (scallop & circles)
Not shown- Stamps and dimensionals
(In this picture I punched the hole in the top of the tin but
found out that it works better to do it in the side of the bottom.)
*Cut ribbon to desired length and tie a knot on the end
(I like to use a lighter to "singe" the ends of the ribbon to
help the knot stay in place.)
*Fish ribbon through hole so that knot is on the inside of tin
Punch out shapes to use for the top of the tin
Stamp peppermint sticks on very vanilla circle
and again on scrap very vanilla.
Layer and adhere the punch shapes onto
*Cover your peppermint stick image (the one on scrap paper)
with versamark and cover with clear embossing powder.
*Cut out peppermint sticks
Using dimensionals, add the cut out peppermint sticks
Adhere the scalloped layers onto the front of tin and
fill with what ever you like. I chose Peppermint
I found this cute tea bag holder tutorial (by Paula Goff)
