Summer birthdays! (Or 4th of July – but that was last weekend!) We have some very special summer birthdays and I always like to create decorations and party favors to help us celebrate. This is the French Fry box and All About Sugar stamp set. The little “party” banner is on a lollipop stick and the Fry box has a star die cut from the center with sequins between acetate. A little bling for the party.
The box was made with the new heavy Whisper White card stock and stamp in Real Red. Time to party! Hugs, Fran
Happy October! One of the Creative Crew challenges at Splitcoast this month is a Halloween/Fall Focus. I did a Fry box created with the Motley Crew Designer Series paper and Ghoulish Greetings. The Fry Box die is one of the easiest dies out there – die cut, adhere on the sides and decorate. I embellished the sentiment with googlie eyes on the sides and decorated the polka dot cello bag with googlie eyes too.
Not much of a Halloween fan or need a Fall treat? I flipped the DSP so that the just the leaves on the trees were showing and made a Fall Fry box.
The sentiment is from Gratitude For Days and the embellishment on the top is 3 Autumn Wooden Embellishments colored with ink pads and glued together.
I hope you’ll take some time to hop over to the Creative Crew Gallery for October and see all the wonderful creations. Want to play along? Create a Halloween or Fall project and upload it using CCREW1014HF in the keyword section. Hugs, Fran
Oooooh! You’re going to love the new Fry Box Bigz die in the new catalog! This sweet treat die is SO EASY to put together! And it stands flat – a definite plus for boxes. I used a piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock that was already stamped with Regarding Dahlias from another project. I add some decorations and place a tag on the front stamped with the new Fast Food Friends stamp. The twisty on the cello bag was done by covering a twist tie with new Sweet Sadie washi tape – and then all tied up with Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding thick Baker’s Twine. Some shred finishes it off!
