Up today is my final showing with instructions using some of my Wild and Free Collection in rose quartz and gold for the holiday season. The first project is a mini-decorative piece that is perfect for a little spot in your home that could use a touch of sparkle. The second project is an easy and creative way to decorate a package.
Again, I die-cut this geometric heart and sentiment from card stock and gold poster board and adhered them together. The leaves were die-cut from glittered paper. I got a paint strip in rose quartz and trimmed it down to fit the sentiment. All of this was inserted into a little frog base that sits on top of a wood base on top of a mirror. It looks really cute with the cloche on top but for photography purposes, I removed it. Add a few ornaments, beads and sequins and you have got a classy but simple vignette. The parts and pieces are shown below.
The next project is a small kraft box tied with rose ribbon and embellished with “fru-fru” and a pom-pom ball. I love those little things. They complete the bow.
For the tag, I cut a strip of white card stock that was as long as the box and die-cut this tag from marbled-paper. I shouldn’t tell you that I actually MADE that paper marbled. It was sooo much fun and way cool, but it is a little work and I felt kind of like a chemist mixing all the ingredients. However if you want to save yourself the time, trouble, expense and experience, there are all kinds of marbled paper out there now. Anyway, I layered those two tags together and added a few sequins to the top. Next I die-cut the flamingo from gold glittered paper and attached a tiny pink heart button to the center. A toothpick on the flamingo was added for stability and allowed me to insert it wherever I want (pkg., cupcakes, etc.). All the pieces got tucked underneath that fun little bow. You now have a layered, pretty little package. I say make up many of these tags and die-cut pieces and put the parts and pieces in a jar then when you are ready to use them, they are right on hand. And that jar, it adds a little festivity to your counter as well.
