On Monday, I shared with you some pictures of my Stampin' Up! Bingo event this past Saturday. It was so much fun! If you want to see this post go here.
I was already planning to post these projects and then I saw the challenge from Global Design Project for the week. It is a color challenge using Night of Navy, Whisper White, and Sweet Sugarplum. I had to enter.
The first Make & Take is a treat holder.
In the new catalog, Stampin' Up! has a 2 x 8 Cellophane Bag. I filled it with 4 yogurt covered pretzels and stapled it shut with my Handheld Stapler. Cut a piece of Night of Navy card stock 2 1/4 x 3 and scored at 1 1/2 on the 3 inch side. Crease with a Bone Folder. For the tag, I stamped Just For You from the You're So Sweet stamp set onto Thick Whisper White card stock. I used Night of Navy ink. Cut this out using your Paper Snips. Using Swirly Birds, I stamped a small flower on scrap Whisper White and cut it out with the Swirly Scribbles thinlit set. I also cut out a leaf from Cucumber Crush card stock. Adhere the two to the tag with a dimensional.
Have you seen the new Gold Binder Clips on page 177 of the catalog? So cute! I used the clip to attach everything together. To finish the project, I tied a bow using the Sweet Sugarplum ruched ribbon. It's an easy treat to make.
My second Make & Take comes from Debbie Henderson. She had this bag on her blog about 2 weeks ago. If you want to see her post go here. She'll have all of the measurements for you. One bag takes two 6 x 6 sheets of paper. It's perfect for the 6 x 6 paper stacks, but I wanted to stay with my Night of Navy, white, and Sweet Sugarplum decor. To tell the truth, it was always about the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper! I just love it!
My heart goes pit a pat when I see this Night of Navy and Whisper White with Cucumber Crush! It makes me happy! To make the bag, I suggest looking at Debbie Henderson's video. The only thing I changed on the basic bag construction was the tie. I cut the string (I used the Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine) a few inches longer. Instead of tying knots in each end of the string once threaded through the holes, I tied the ends together to make a big circle. This was to make sure the string did not pull through the holes.
For the decoration on the front, I started with by stamping the sentiment from the Bunch of Blossoms stamp set in Night of Navy on Whisper White. I cut it out using the new Layering Circles framelits. I cut out a frame for this using a scalloped circle from the same framelit set. Attach them together with snail and then attach to the bag with dimensionals. I added a bow using the Cucumber Crush Thick Baker's Twine. Attach with a glue dot. The leaves are also cut from Cucumber Crush using the Flourish Thinlits. Use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere. The little flower is stamped from the Jar of Love stamp set. I stamped first with Sweet Sugarplum, stamping off first. Then I stamped with Sweet Sugarplum full force for the second layer. Cut the flower out with the Everyday Jars Framelits. This actually stamps two flowers and cuts out 2 flowers. Attach the flower with dimensionals.
I thought these items turned out great!
Here are all of the items again. I'm planning on having another Bingo event when we get the holiday catalog! Look below for the products I used. They go right to my online store. Follow me on Pinterest here.
