One thing I learned...I need a Stamp-a-ma-jig...I could not get the words straight! I tried 3 times and this was the best I could get, lol. Anyway, check out the cute paper I used! I just love blue and green. I often refer to them as "my colors." The paper is from the package you can receive free during the Sale-a-bration (click here for details.) Spend $50 and choose this set of 16 sheets of double-sided paper (4 each of 4 designs.) Colors that coordinate with this paper are Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Sahara Sand. The So Saffron ribbon can also be earned during the Sale-a-bration. You can receive a ribbon bundle pack including 10 yards (5/8" wide) of both So Saffron and Certainly Celery. The So Saffron is grosgrain and Certain Celery is poly- twill. The label "Hi There" is stamped on is one of my favs. That comes from an awesome stamp set Frames with Flourish (click here to check it out.)
Ok, here's how it's done...
1)Cut Very Vanilla 9 1/2" x 4 3/4"
2)Fold in half like a hamburger creating a 4 3/4" square
3)Cut green Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper 4 1/2" x 4 1/4"
4)Punch down the shortest sides. (I used a punch I had lying around but I suggest using Stampin' Up's new Eyelet edge punch -click here to have a look- you're gonna love it! I ordered mine yesterday and can't wait to get my hands on it.)
5)Cut the multi colored dot Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper 3 1/4" x 4 1/4"
(If you want a shabby chic look, use an edge distressor or scissors to roughen up the edges.)
6)Stamp the label image on Bashful Blue cardstock and cut out
7)Stamp a sentiment from Fundamental Phrases (click here to see the set) In the center and straight if you are any better at it than I am, lol.
8)Use a sponge dauber and ink the edges of everything with Close to Cocoa
9)Attach the dotted paper to the green scallop edge paper
10)Tie a length of So Saffron ribbon around the left side of the dotted paper and attach a small Bashful Blue brad at the top and bottom edges
11)Attach label (I also curled up the corners of the dotted paper and curled up the scallops to finish off the shabby chic look.)
All done! So cute!
