Doily Wrapping

My last project for 
featured a plain kraft box decorated in a band of 
pink paper doilies, ribbon and a sweet glittered topper.
Makes such a nice statement and so easy and quick to construct!
Curtsey Boutique carries pinstriped, yes pinstriped boxes of the same size...
check 'em out here!  For the band, I used five of the 4" hand-dyed pink paper doilies
and adhered them together with a small glue dot.  I then wrapped them around the
box (not too tightly so it will slide off), securing the ends at the bottom.

I love pink and turquoise together (well, I love turquoise with any color LOL), so I 
added a band of satin ribbon and then tied on a bow to the top.  To the center I added one 
of my most favorite Curtsey Boutique products, a mini felt rose.

I wanted the glittered cake die-cut to stand UP on top of the box, so I attached two of 
the pieces together by folding a strip of paper between them as shown above.

And that's it...pretty easy, right?? I think these would also make darling favor boxes for
a girly birthday party, baby or wedding shower or perhaps even for a caterer offering little
boxes of sweet treats :)

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…
