Welcome to our final day of our March Release countdown!
Today we have an amazing group post for our monthly Year in Review!
This is a favorite for all as we make something NEW! with something OLD!
The rules are simply put: use some older products and make something fresh and fun. It doesn’t have to be ALL old, it can mix and match the new with old.
We have an amazing team ready to share so stop by their blogs for a visit:
As you’ve seen the Well Contained template is a super cute packaging option, so I wanted to use it once again today. I really can’t get enough of it. It is easy to assemble and fun to use.
The scallop topped carton is adorable all on its own! You don’t need a lot of bells and whistles to make this container POP, and I’ll show you that here today!
Keeping it quick and simple I cut the carton from the NEW! Well Contained template in red cardstock. I packaged up a travel size body wash & lotion from Bath & Body Works called Energize! Love that stuff
I cut the oval layer using the NEW! Fine Finish Tag Pretty Pieces Cut File. Another product I can’t stop using this month
On the tag I used a few oldie-but goodie sets
The “grass” is from the Timed Write © . The flower is from the Puckered Paper Pieces © set, and the stem is from the Sensational Digital Package © . My sentiment is from the Sentimental Occasions Labels © .
I popped out the flower center with a circle punch, and layered it onto the stem with a dimensional. I love adding POP to things. Far more appealing than FLAT projects.
Now while this carton is simply sweet, the holder makes it all the more sweeter!
The holder is every bit as simple as the carton in this sample. Just cut from plain ole’ daffodil cardstock, then added a decorative strip of coordinating paper…..
and a flower button with a shimmery leaf on either side to complete the little details.
Its all about the little finishing touches.
Now the holder can hold “other” items too. Just use your imagination!
