Having five kids of various ages, our summers are usually filled with lots of birthday parties! There is just something about the warm weather (and possibly the fact that we can host them outside) that gets us in the party mood! For my projects today, I have created some quick, fun, and bright party favors and a coordinating birthday card!
I usually choose party favors that are quick to create but also "fit" the person we are celebrating. For these, I chose bright patterned paper to create some party favor holders and felled them with candy. I tied on a tag that I created using the Party Hats set and coordinating Party Hats Confetti Cuts die set.
For the base of the tag, I die cut the party hat (using the Party Hats Confetti Cuts) on a folded piece of black cardstock. I made sure to position the die so that some of the folded part was still left intact. I then layered the embossed and die cut front on top.
I enjoyed the bright, neon colors so much that I carried them over to the card! I embossed three of the party hats adding a die cut tissue topper to the middle one. I love that Jen included the fringe and topper with the Party Hats Confetti Cuts die set...so fun! For a little grounding place to tie my string, I added a black die cut border (I used the Wonky Double Edge Scallop Border Confetti Cuts die).
I had a "happy accident" while making this card! Well, it all started with me being too lazy to change out the white bobbin in my sewing machine! LOL! The result is that you can see a bit of the white shining through on the stitching that I did. I thought it actually made this card better! Yay! :-)
I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! Now it’s time to hop on over to Susan Liles' blog.
