Welcome to the Control Freaks April 2013 Tour (officially starts April 20th, but should be live by 8:00pm central time April 19th- so be sure to stop back later to take the full tour). We are thrilled to have you join us today. Our tour features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers sharing projects made with Stampin' Up! products. In fact, you may have just come from Justin Krieger's Blog
Our theme for this month is: "Stampin' Up! Birthday Creations".
Butterfly Birthday Ensemble
I don't know about you, but...I just can't put Stampin' Up! Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches down. I am so drawn to them and I find myself reaching for them on almost every project these days. So instead of fighting it, I simply gave in (again!) and you get birthday butterflies!!
- Butterfly Birthday card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2")
- Butterfly Birthday thank you (3"x3")
- Butterfly Boutique Box candy holder
I chose a soft color palette of retiring colors. I think I'll miss Baja Breeze the most!
Both the birthday and thank you cards have a panel with lines scored on all 4 sides to give them a little texture interest.
TIP: score with front side faced down on your scoring tool
Butterfly Boutique Box Candy Holder
Boutique Boxes make for a great last minute candy holder. You'll find them in the 2013 Spring Catalog. They come already die cut - woohoo!. Just punch-out, add Sticky Strip, fold and you're done!
Well...add some cute decorations with Butterflies and Marina Mist 3/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon...then you're done!
TIP: The box-top is actually folded backwards and stays in place with the ribbon. Just slip in 2 candy bars (yes, two candy bars fit perfectly...gotta love that!) and your candy holder is ready to go.
It could be a gift in itself or would make a great party favor too!
