On a recent trip to Staples I found a bunch of breast cancer awareness products including some pink pencils and a set of 6 paper clips with an attached pink ribbon charm (for only $1.99). I was bound and determined to use that cute charm and the pencils. I came up with a box to hold 4 pencils, and adorned it with the cute charm. I am planning to do a tutorial video later this week, so stay tuned for that.
For the pencil treat box, I adhered the picture of the single Who's that Girl and used the Mini Ticket Strip to stamp the word "strong" on.
I sanded all the edges of my patterned paper to make them stand out against the black box. Her shirt was paper-pieced using the gorgeous patterned paper.
The charms came attached to the paper clips, but I just had to slip them off. Easy peasy (and cute).
I made a coordinating card. I didn't want to add any more patterned paper and wanted to coordinate as closely to the box as I could, so I jazzed it up by adding another stitched box inside the outer layer. It gave me just enough "stuff" I think. :) The perfectly matching brads are from my stash from pink hedgehog. The image is matted on the Open Scallop Doily Duo. I added some Simply Scallops Medium in pink. The sentiment is stamped on the Ticket Tab Die-namics.
Here is a peek inside the card:
I wanted to make another card to show the other main image included in the stamp set. The girls' outfits are paper-pieced and I added a huge flower "pin" to one of their shirts by using the flower die from the Notched Tag Die-namics and white felt. In the center, I adhered a Swarovski Crystal. The image is matted on one of the doilies from the Open Scallop Doily Duo Die-namics (say that five times fast). I stamped the sentiment using Brilliance Black and then clear embossed to make it stand out more against the patterned paper.
Here is a peek inside this card. I used a sentiment from the set and one of the accessory ribbons that can be stamped on the girls' shirts. :)
*Whew* that was a a LOT of pink, and a lot of flowers. I hope you like both of those things as much as I do. LOL
