Today’s Bloggers Challenge was to alter something. Well, heaven knows, I have PLENTY of stuff in my Studio that I’ve saved to "alter" someday. A couple of things were these Stax potato chip containers. The Brilliant Blue and Yo Yo Yellow colors were hard to work around, but I think the Good Morning Sunshine Designer paper goes pretty well! Not sure what I’ll use this for…any suggestions?
I started by wrapping the container with Good Morning Sunshine Designer Paper and securing it with Sticky Strip. Then I used Sticky Strip along the back of the 5/8 Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon and secure it on top of the DSP along the top and bottom seams of the DSP.
For the lid, I cut three sets of the Daisies #2 die in Brilliant Blue, Summer Sun and Old Olive cardstock and alternated the colors and sizes to make the flower. I finished the center with a Kiwi Kiss Corduroy button (since they are being retired!) I secured it to the lid with dimensionals.
As a design for the front, I decided to use a little of the On Board I’ve been hoarding. We received an entire package of So Tweet OnBoard at Convention or Leadership and I hadn’t even cut into it. So, I used the large bird, covered the On Board with Craft Summer Sun and Craft Pumpkin Pie. I used Crystal Effects to hold on the wing, beak and tail feathers…then went ahead and painted on a thin coat of Crystal Effects over the entire body to give it a little bit of shine. I was going to put some kind of words or something…but really couldn’t think of anything I wanted it to say, so…I’ll just keep it until I use it and then come up with something! lol!
Remember a few weeks ago, I mentioned I had some exciting news? Well, I’ve been selected by Korin Sutherland to be on the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Design Team! I’m so honored to be able to share my creativity with this team! You’ll see we have a SNSS Blog Hop scheduled over on the left sidebar…my post will be on July 2! Hope you stop by and see some of these talented gals’ work next week!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
