We have another "pretty package" assembly up for admiration from our sweet and lovely Melissa Phillips. It includes both a card and gift bag using the Maggie Holmes Confetti collection and a sprinkling of American Crafts "WOW" glitter. They are quite the shabby chic pair!
MELISSA PHILLIPS: Hello there! Today's project uses Crate Paper's Confetti collection to whip up some pretty packaging...one of my most favorite ways to use my crafting supplies :).
I began with a Sizzix gift bag die and patterned paper to create my gift bag. I then selected a doily from the Crocheted Doily Garland, snipped it apart from the rest, and adhered it around the top edge of my gift bag to create a sweet, decorative topper.
Next it was time to start dressing up my gift bag using Confetti cardstock stickers, chipboard, wood shapes, and ephemera.
For today's project I wanted to use the Confetti "WOW" glitter to add sparkle and shine to a few of my elements, so I added the cream tinsel glitter to the top of my birthday cake, and aqua glitter to my wood star. This is a really fun and easy way to bring in a little shimmer and make your projects shine.
I then created a coordinating card that I could present with the gift bag. I chose a set of colors that complimented my bag and tied both projects together.
Once again I added aqua Confetti glitter to the leaves on my chipboard flower...how could I possibly resist using such a gorgeous color?
A few sequins, cardstock stickers, and a sweet birdie from the Confetti Ephemera package and my card is complete. I love all of the wonderful ways we can incorporate paper-crafting into our daily lives...occasions large and small.
Thanks for stopping in!
