1x8 CLEAR BAGS
TGIF! Sharing something a little sweet today! These are some goodies I made recently for a customer who wanted a little something for her children to share with their classmates at an end-of-the-year party. This batch I made with m&m's and a 4th of July theme. I used some mini manila tags and recycled some heart buttons. The buttons had a loop on the back that was cut off, allowing them to lay flat on the paper. The patterned paper is from a new Pink Paislee pack that you will see below.This is the new Pink Paislee pack I picked up on my last visit to VA. It's a super cute 6x6 pad and here I showed the 3 sheets I chose for this project. The great thing about 6x6 pads is that the pattern is the same as the larger sheets, but on a smaller scale...this allows you to use your favorite sheet on smaller projects!I made this bunch with skittles to avoid a peanut allergy with the m&m's. Still a great and sweet substitute! This was the first time I'd used skittles and they fit just as nice and snug as the m&m's.Added a little crystal effects for a shiny melon! I thought I'd add this quick note on how I made the watermelons. Just layer your circles then cut in half. When it comes to getting your 'seeds' lined up(below), stamp both corners and the middle FIRST...then go back and add your additional seeds. This will give you nicely spaced out seeds without having to guess if you do them one at a time ;).
