Card "Create"tions Week 3!

Oops, so sorry I forgot to set my setting to have this post go early this morning! This is our last week of Create with Connie & Mary Card "Create"tions for Occasions Edition. We are ending by posting a favor with the stamp set we showed during the week.

My stamp set was "By The Tide" and here is my little 3D favor:

And guess what I used for my favor? I used an empty Stampin' Up! embellishment container! I covered the sides with designer paper. For the lid I covered the side with ribbon.

The top was so easy to cover since we have such wonderful punches. I used the 2 1/2" Circle Punch with Cajun Craze Cardstock and followed that by a layer of Old Olive Cardstock cut with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.

I smooshed a small Soda Pop Top through my Big Shot Machine and added the stamped image using at Stampin' Dimensional. The shell image was hand-cut and glued on with a Stampin' Dimension and finally, I added a small bow made out of Baker's Twine and glued in place with a Mini Glue Dot.

  1. What a fun little container! I can see making a larger version for a child to save small shells and other treasures that they find at the beach.

    1. What a great idea Chellie. That's something my granddaughter would love. Thanks for visiting!
