Hi girlies! I can't believe how much fun the Spa Weekend has been so far! And what a great blog hop, I LOVED stopping by everyone's blogs to see their favorite flowers and how they relax. And thanks for all the wonderful comments...I've loved reading what inspires all of you! Can't wait to pick my blog candy winner on MONDAY!
I hope you've stopped by Cuttlebug Challenge this morning and saw the awesome Baby Gift Tutorial that I got to be a part of....with the amazingly talented Becky Givans and Lea Lawson. I just wanted to add some details for my project so you know how I made it.
The onesies were by far my favorite part of this baby gift set. I used Inkadinkadoo stamps and Martha Stewart light yellow ink. I stamped the image onto the onesie and then took needle and thread and stitched the stamp outline. And then I threw it in the wash (on gentle, with my fingers crossed that it would turn out perfect) and taadaa, it did! It looks like a custom onesie...this would also be a great way to monogram things, like towels, bags, etc. The sky's the limit.
Next step was making the little onesie gift box. I simply took a piece of 12x12 cardstock and decided how big of a box I wanted. It is a 5x3 inch. I kept an extra 2 inches on each side for the sides of my box so it's really a 9x7in. I then scored the box where I wanted my sides to fold up to make it seamless and used my hot glue gun to secure the sides. I used a piece of transparency for my top. I then used my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities to cut out the cute flower using DCWV & Colorbok paper, Swiss Dots folder, and Melissa Frances sticker.
I wanted to carry the flower theme thru the gift to give it a neat look. So I made a mini album out of a Clear Scraps album. I used the same technique for the flower, added some Martha Stewart Ribbon and a Melissa Frances Rub-On & frame.
And for the card, yep same technique again with Melissa Frances Coupons, Frame, and MS Ribbon.
So easy and fun.
Hope you've enjoyed the Cuttlebug Spa Weekend!
