Thank you for taking the time to peek in! In today’s post I want to share my project from the Discount Paper Crafts challenge for Round #1!
Here’s the video of the items I got in the mail! You can jump to 2:34 where I’m sharing the items from the package!
Here’s the video where I share today’s project!
The theme was “Romantic Vintage Valentine”!! Loved that theme! Here are pics of my project!
My first thought was “Why not create the traditional Valentine’s Day gift of a card, flowers and a box of chocolates”!!! Here’s the set in my version of a shabby chic “Vintage Romance”!
I started with the card. I used “My Mind’s Eye” paper “Blush” 6×6 paper pad and some Graphic 45 paper from an older collection called “Le Romantique”! Some of the die cut pieces Cathie sent went so well with this paper collection! I do point out every item I got in my video above so you see where they all are!
I added an extra page in my card so it gives more room to write that romantic LOVE note!! *wink*
My box of chocolate Hershy’s Kisses was handmade/hand built!! I used a Sizzix die “Lace Heart Frame” and used chipboard to build the edges for the walls! I had so much fun decorating under the lid! I thought it was a unique idea! The purple flower from our package is on the box lid. It was painted with gesso twice then painted with a teal color to match my accent color! I show that in todays video!!
The Mystery item was a Tootsie pop!!! A TOOTSIE POP!! lol Ah….I was wanting to eat it when I first saw it….lol….anyhow, I decided to make it the base for my bouquet! I created tiny floral bouquets wrapped in muslin leaves to soften them and added a few bundles in it especially under the main bouquet, you can see muslin leaves and ribbon flowing from the tootsie pop stick….so here it is!
In the 5th picture below you can see the tootsie pop between the flowers! It worked out perfect for what I had envisioned!!
This was so much fun to make…..seriously!! aaaand, I made it to round #2….omg, round 2 made me sweat!! lol
I’ll share the round 2 project in a few days! I worked so hard on it, making sure to complete the requirements of the theme and techniques we were given! whew!!! lol Here’s the video of what we got.
