Hey there Fancy Pants fans! Jess here today with the next project in our Wrap Star series, where we show you fun ways to wrap gifts. It’s BBQ season (finally!) and that means I need some small but sweet hostess gifts at the ready. I love bringing something a little different and my summer lemonade basket is pretty cute, if I do say so myself!
I covered the wood berry basket with patterned paper from the Summer Sun collection, added a tag to give the back more height, and tied a coordinating ribbon around the edge. I cut the “hello summer” from one of the 3 x 4 cards and fussy cut small flowers from paper to embellish the front.
Included in the basket you’ll find:
- two embellished paper cups
- a bundle of napkins and stirrers tied with twine
- a clear treat bag with cookies tied with a tag
- a two pack of lemonade mix
It all packs right into the basket for an adorable lemonade and cookie treat for two. It’s simple and inexpensive but such a fun way to treat the hostess!
Ever have to give just a little something as a gift? A birthday for a co-worker, or a thank you for a babysitter, or that friend who went out of their way to give you a hand? When I’m in that situation I often opt for a gift card or a handful of personally chosen Lindt chocolates from the Lindt store down the street. The thing I’m always left wondering is how to give such a little gift, but yet still make it feel special. A regular envelope is fine but boring and store bought gift bags are often too small and/or too pricey. Enter the handmade gift bag.
I use to make bags and envelopes by hand by using a pre-bought one as a template. Now that I have a Silhouette Cameo, however, the process is much easier. I know there are other tools on the market that are great for homemade packaging too. I used the Office Suite collection to create this pint size bag duo to have on hand for the next little thank you I will have to give.
The coordinating tag and pinwheel add just an extra special handmade touch. The tag I backed with coordinating cardstock to make it easier to read. My plan is to make a few different sentiments to have on hand, with a few different patterned bags, so my girls with have them ready to use when needed. Also, female and male themed.
I know pinwheels may no longer be the hottest trend but there is just something about them that spell summer and fun… two things most of us can’t get enough of and both of which go perfectly with the Office Suite collection.
We’d love to hear your clever ways of giving small gifts. Feel free to share them in the comments section.
Here are the file numbers of these cuts so you can find them in the Silhouette store should you decided to try your hand at these pint size bags.
Hello everyone, Alena here today sharing a project using the new collection: Summer Sun. Recently my family was on vacation where we are well-rested and we’ve got a lot of good photos. I decided to add some of them in an Insta Album.
For the decorations I used the beautiful flowers that are cut out with the Floral Summer paper.
The Insta Pack is just perfect for this album!
Also I used Brag Cards that are cut to size.
How I love new sequins from this collection!
I like to view this album and keep it in my hands.
Hey Fancy Pants gang! Jen Chesnick stopping by again to share my May Flowers project. For the states in the lower half of the U.S. May can bring nice warm beach days and early blooms. My daughter loves the beach and I love all the bright colors of scrapbooking her beach photos.
My cameo is my go to tool to create 3D texture on a page. I cut out large flowers (cherry blossom) to create my floral focal point. They remind me of the flowers you would see at a beach wedding or even a tiki hut.
Hello friends! Yuki here to share fun home décor projects with you. Today is the day three of “May Flowers” week on the Fancy Pants Designs blog and I created these wall hanging decorations.
I used the 12×12 Gold Houndstooth Print for the base of triple gold circles. You will find this fantastic gold print in the new Summer Sun collection . I really love this! I cut it in two 5 1/2” circles and a 3 1/2” circle with my digital cutting machine.
