It's a Wrap!

It's A Wrap...A Can Wrap that is!
As promised, a super-easy tutorial for you this Monday.
Below are step-by-step instructions for the easiest way that I've found to embellish a clear (or tin) container. I've used this design as my altered project over at Back Porch Memories this month :)
  1. Measure the diameter of your container by measuring across the entire top
2.Multiply that number by 3.17 (or more commonly known as PI).  My can measured 6" across which gives me a little over 19".  
3. Half that number and you'll get the measurement of what you need for two strips of paper.  Mine was 9.5" ( so I cut two strips of cardstock into 9.5" lengths)
4.  Next, decide how wide you'd like your paper...I chose 3" wide.
5.  After attaching your accent paper to your base paper (I stitched mine!), you'll want to sandwich your two paper strips together and punch holes as shown above (so that the holes lines up evenly).  You can use twine or ribbon to tie the two strips together...makes a super fast and easy wrap for any can!
Finally, embellish as desired.  Quick, cute and best of all...E-A-S-Y!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!


Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
