So I didn’t make it to Convention this year. And, I’m really bummed. But, that’s ok, there is always next year, right?
I’m getting ready for a Card Buffet this weekend. The first with the new catalog. I am really excited to show off new stuff.
I just LOVED the June My Paper Pumpkin kit, Pinwheel Party. The first one I had, I immediately put it together. I made a wreath, put some of the pinwheels on the straws that were included and I also put some on the vases I had around the house. Definitely festive I tell you.
Well, I had another kit that my mom didn’t want. So, I immediately tried to figure out a non-Fourth of July look for the pinwheels. This is what I came up with –
My color inspiration for this came from Paper Pals Arts. I was a few days late for their challenge, but that’s ok. It was great inspiration. Here were the colors to use –
Now, what I wasn’t late for was to show my use of the June kit over at My Pumpkin Challenge. Some nifty ideas over there too. This got my creativity going. And, some of you might see these again. They were too fun to make.
These are take on what we were shown at the Stampin’ Up Catalog Premier party. I started with half sheet of card stock, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.
Parallel to the long side, I scored at 1/2.
I rotated the card stock, then I scored at 1 3/4, 2 1/4, 2 3/4, 5 1/2, 6. 6 1/2.
I removed the 1/2 sections along the bottom, leaving the center portion. Stamped the front. I used a little Sticky Strip to adhere the back and fold up on the bottom. That’s it. This treat holder was done! The pinwheel brad went through the front of the treat holder for extra durability.
Like my little goody bag? I think it’s adorable. Too bad I was late for the first challenge at PPA – I would have so nailed it!
