Here are a couple more items that I made for my Open House last month.
The first item is a centerpiece I made after seeing tons of them on www.splitcoaststampers.com Enter " TLC154 " in the search engine and you'll see lots of samples. If you are interested in making one, you can go to the Martha Stewart website HERE and print out the directions for the "Fortune Teller How To". Once you start making it, it'll take you right back to 6th grade "cootie catchers". The centerpiece is the "cootie catcher" upside down. Your goodies go where your hands would be to open & close.
I don't have a large scallop punch/die cut, so I made mine by punching lots of 1 inch circles of Sage Shadow CS and attaching them to the back of the Pretty In Pink Circle. I thought it would be a little tacky to leave them exposed, so I placed another circle on back. If I'd really been thinking, I would have just done another little chick on it too! Oh, well, I can't think of everything!
I'm really excited about the next item, because I came up with it all by myself. I didn't see someone else do it and change the words & colors, I ACTUALLY created this on my own! Aren't you so proud of me?? I wanted to make a Home Decor Item that said something more about the Easter holiday than just "Happy Easter", I already had stuff that said that. Since the reason we celebrate Easter is Jesus' death, burial, & resurrection, I wanted something that would inspire me & my family to think beyond eggs, chocolate, & bunnies (or chicks from all the projects I've just posted). "Faith, Hope, & Love" just seemed perfect, since apart from Jesus we cannot have true faith, hope, or love.
Supplies: On Board Book Basics-Small, Spring Fling Designer Series Paper (aka DSP), Sticky Cuts Letters, Chunky Sprinkles (from Occasions Mini), 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon in White, Pretty In Pink, & Certainly Celery, 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon in Certainly Celery, Silver Ribbon Slide from Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware (from Occasions Mini),Sanding Blocks, Crop-A-Dile, SNAIL, Modge Podge
***TIP: On the "HOPE" sign, I DID NOT remove the paper backing from the Sticky Cuts Letters. The white Chunky Sprinkles would have been too transparent on the Sticky Cuts Letters on the DSP. I used our SNAIL adhesive to adhere the "hope" letters to the DSP. On the "faith" & "love" signs, I adhered the Sticky Cuts Letters directly to the DSP and then sprinkled on the Chunky Sprinkles.
Now off you go...create...get inky...get glitter on your face...eat chocolate...have fun!! Erin
