This week we are showcasing projects created with our newest collections along with products from Pretty Pink Posh! Join us every day this week for inspiration projects from our fabulous design team!
Hey everyone, it's Hilary here today with a fun little project using the "Radiant" collection by Authentique Paper, and some really sweet sequin from Pretty Pink Posh. For my project today, I created little mini-notecards, and fun boxes to hold them. I hope you enjoy!
For the boxes, I used an 'Artist Trading Card' Sizzix die to cut the base out of chipboard and patterned paper, then used a small butterfly die to cut out a butterfly for the middle. Then folded and adhered the paper to the chipboard using a very strong permanent adhesive. For the bottom's of the boxes, I wrapped pretty crochet trims and a little snippet of a wooden fence, securing with hot glue. The center is clear by way of a small piece of transparency, which was sandwiched in between the pattern paper and chipboard. I added fun stickers to the top, some matching sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, and of course, little wire antennae to the butterflies.
Before adhering the paper to the chipboard, adhere a small piece of transparency over the chipboard butterfly opening, then adhere your pattern paper on top, (now you have a small 'window')....Then, pinching the wings upward, secure the separate chipboard butterfly to the transparency using a dab of hot glue, after adding small wire antennae to the top.
These little boxes are great for holding little gifts too, there's plenty of room for adding a small treat along with your notecard.
I wanted to add a small carrying handle so a small white pipe cleaner was the perfect touch.
The small little notecards inside measure 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 and I used the "Life Cards" for the fronts of the cards.
The cards are super easy to make, simply cut white cardstock to 5 x 3 1/2, fold in half and set aside. Cut a piece of pattern paper slightly smaller and adhere to the white card. Cut out a "Life Card" and adhere to the front, and decorate with small sequin. I also added a sentiment sticker to the inside.
I love how simple and fun these mini-notecards came out. This whole project makes me smile and your recipient will surely love these as well.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my project!
