Even though these colors are bright and pretty, I went in a wee bit different direction with my project today, as I wanted to play with some new goodies I just received! On pages 158-159 of the new catalog are the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes and Accessory Kit….very cool products! The boxes are made of a sturdy kraft with a heavy acetate sleeve that fits over it like a glove! You can put cookies, candy, any sort of goodies inside, then decorate it to your heart’s content! Since Father’s Day is coming up, I thought I would decorate mine in some Epic Day This & That papers and an MDS tag:
Here it is with the sleeve on, “tied” with some Pool Party ribbon:
And here is the tag, created in MDS; the top tag is the one I created, the bottom striped tag is from the Accessory kit; I just layered the two:
Here’s an end view. And here’s a little tip: I wanted to make sure the designer paper stayed on completely, so that the sleeve would not rip up the edges, so I first adhered a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of my DP, peeled it off and stuck it on to the box before assembling! What a cool product and no need for messy glue or worrying about the tape not adhering all the way to the edges!
My dad has a love of antiques (and has passed down that love to all of his kids!), so I know he’ll like this “antique” box, especially when I put some of his favorite goodies inside!
Now, what can you create with these colors? You can see that they can be used for all sorts of projects! Check out the Paper Players blog to see what the other designers created and share your beautiful creation with us as well!
We had some serious rain here at the end of the week….but we got out our boots and umbrellas and ventured outside anyway:
