Hello again, crafty friends. I’m excited to be a part of THIS Blog Hop. I have two projects to share today that feature THIS die…
You can watch the video on how I created these projects HERE or click on the video below…
Today’s projects use the Little Bits Envie Confetti Cuts Die. This die creates a cute little envelope with a tab closure. The inside of the envie has cut outs in the corners to hold a panel that measures 2 5/8. However, my first example shows that you don’t have to use those cut outs and can cover them if you choose.
So lets turn a little bits envie die-cut into a treat holder. I thought this would make a fun party favor for guests at a birthday party so I went with the birthday theme for this project. I started by cutting it from white cardstock and reinforcing the crease lines with a bone folder. I wanted to create a beach scene so I did some ink blending on the two flaps. First, I masked off the area I didn’t want any ink on and started ink blending the bottom flap. I inked up the bottom with some Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink to resemble sand and then came in with salty ocean ink to resemble the ocean. For the other tab closure, I created a sunny sky using Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide inks. I chose Distress Oxide inks for this because they are so easy to blend.
Now let’s work on the inside. I wanted to show that you can cover out the four slots for a different look. I shopped my stash and found an older square die that fit perfectly. You could always just cut down a piece of cardstock with your trimmer if you didn’t have a square die. I cut the die using Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock. I wanted to do some stamping on it so I stamped the palm trees image from THIS stamp set using clear ink. I like to use clear ink when I just want a subtle image that is a bit darker than the cardstock I’m stamping on. After I heat set that off camera, I stamped a sentiment from this Dog Days Sentiment stamp set using black pigment ink.
Now let’s move on to finish decorating the front of the envelope. I stamped another sentiment from that same stamp set on the tab closure flap and then added some colored images from the Dog Days Stamp Set that I had leftover from my previous video. You can watch that video HERE. I adhered the pieces on using foam squares. I like to squirt a bit of liquid adhesive on the foam squares to make sure they stay secure since the recipient will be opening and closing the envelope.
Here is the card that I created in the previous video. It pairs nicely with the party favor…
To finish off the inside, I adhered the stamped square piece in the center portion. I found chocolate squares that happen to be the perfect size to include in this envelope and adhered it on top of the stamped piece using two small glue dots. I thought the Sea Salt Caramel was the perfect flavor to go with the beach theme. Such a quick and easy party favor to create for guests to take home. I think these would also make great little teacher or school bus driver treats by changing up the theme.
Before I go, have another idea to share. You can also use this Little Bits Envie Confetti Cuts die and create a gift tag. I created this one by die-cutting the main die from gold cardstock and I stamped the flower from THIS stamp set using reds and greens for a Holiday feel. I also did gold heat embossing for two of the layers to coordinate with the gold cardstock.
On the inside, I gold heat embossed a sentiment from THIS stamp set. This is the place where I will write to and from…
These make a great little handmade touch to gift giving. You could adhere this to a gift bag or tuck it into a ribbon on a gift box like I did here…
Also, notice how I changed the orientation of the design. I created a horizontal design on this project instead of a vertical orientation on the first project. I love that you can mix it up.
There is much more inspiration to see. Click HERE for the next stop on the hop. Here is the complete Blog Hop List…
