Words from Pam

Hey girls – do you struggle to make some fun stuff for the men in your life? Husbands, or dads, or sons, or grandpas or brothers or uncles…¬†

etc? If so pop over and check out my little project for you today. 

I’ve used both stamps and a template for you. I hope you’ll enjoy it. ūüôā

Check our her blog—>HERE!

I figured it would be a good time to highlight one of our newest Pretty Packaging ¬© templates Under Cover ¬©. This is a super cute template with SOOOOO many uses and possibilities.You can use it as it is….add a window, make it a shaker box….or of course use it with the Cute Critters Cut Files– Heart Stealer Raccoon ¬©, and Whooty-Love ¬©

Today I am sharing the sample that is on the website. This uses some of the products from last month’s release.

This box was filled with truffle filled Hershey Kisses! An entire bag fit in here!

I created the slider cover from Rusty Hinge cardstock. I then added an additional patterned paper layer that I printed using the Pretty Printables Fluttering By © collection. I  combined 2 patterns from the collection to make my own customized pattern. I printed the text in the pink color, then the daisy pattern over it. It made for a stunning pattern. It was fun to customize that.

I used my Cricut Expression with the circle that comes in the software to add a window (for both the slider and decorative cover). I did make the decorative cover circle a 1/4 inch larger. I then covered the circle opening with acetate. The acetate is sandwiched between the pattern paper and slide base layer.

This uses the All A Flutter © image set.

I stamped the butterfly on the acetate window in white stazon, and brushed on some pearlescent pastels.

I stamped the butterfly again on acetate, repeated the pastels, then cut out, attached with a clear glue dot and popped wings forward. So simple, so easy, and so pretty.

I added some flowers, and May Arts ribbon.

For the slider portion of the template, I used the Rusty Hinge colored polka dot pattern from Shutt-erfly ¬© Pretty Printables paper. It was the Perfect accent to the box. If you haven’t tried the paper you should! Its STUNNING!

If you love the look of this collection, you will love what I am about to share next.
