Gifts: Clear and Simple Stamps January Style Watch – Week 3
January 21, 2012
Hey there Style Watchers!
So sorry about my late post today. I hope you’ll forgive me once you get a peek at today’s awesomely fun project!
I may be getting a little ahead of myself with today’s group of projects, but I simply could not resist a little St. Patrick’s Day crafting when I got a hold of this month’s release package.
Among the many newly released sets is the Lucky Charm stamp set, which is a much needed addition to my collection. I didn’t own any St. Patrick’s Day themed stamps before Lucky Charm, and this set totally fills in the gap!
It’s full of adorable and punny sentiments, as well as, a rainbow image that goes perfectly with the pot o’ gold image included in the previously released Taglines set – don’t you just love that each release works so perfectly with one another.
Next, I trimmed 1 1/2″ off the top of each die cut and rounded the top corners on the remaining bottom portion. This bottom portion became my “pot.”
Then I adhered the cuts on either side of the Party #1 favor bag. Voila! You’ve got your own adorable pot o’ gold! I filled my bag with chocolate coins which I picked up at Party City.
Of course my pot o’ gold needed a rainbow, so I created one very simply by arranging a spectrum of jelly beans in a small plastic tube! Topped off with a tag and the perfect sentiment, these treat containers are the perfect pair!
That’s all from me today! I hope these project get you in the spirit to be creative with your Build-A-Critter dies! The possibilities are endless!
