Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I have been extremely busy and didn’t get to share this memo holder I created as a gift idea for Christmas. You could change the colors and embellishments for a birthday or as an office anniversary gift.
I started by placing Mat Board on top of Bag, Caddy Diecut and put between the two plates and run through the Diecut Machine. I inked a glass tray with Fruit Punch Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, add water and watercolored the front and back of the box and backing of the diecuts and let dry.
I inked a Color Blender with Alabaster Chalk Ink from the Mercantile Paintbox Chalk Ink Set and placed the Lattice Art Screen on top of the backing diecut and apply the Alabaster Chalk Ink. I again applied Alabaster Chalk Ink to the Color Blender and place the Lattice Art Screen on top of the box diecut and applied to the art screen. I put the Bag/Caddy together according to directions on the packaging and cut one backing from patterned cardstock using the Bag/Caddy Diecut and adhere to the back of the completed Bag/Caddy.
I placed a holly stamp from the Cookies Clear Stamps Set onto an Acrylic Block and inked with Wicked Black Archival Ink and stamp onto a piece of patterned green cardstock. I fussy cut the holly image out and shaped.
I wrapped red twine around the Bag/Caddy three times and adhered into place. Next I looped several mint and aqua threads together and adhere to the back of the holly before adding to the Bag/Caddy. I added three red gems to the holly. I tied red twine around 3″x3″ notepad or a set of sticky notes would work too. I finished off by adding a ink pen along with the notepad to the Bag/Caddy.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
