Pixie Tricks

DOODLEBUG DESIGN
has teamed up with Xyron all week long in bringing cute ideas and giveaways!  
Our focus this week has been on one of the newest products: Pixies


For my first card I used the Pixies in a couple of ways:  as the sprinkles on top of the 
cupcake and as an outline to the pattern on the cupcake liner.

 
 Because the Pixies are hollow in the center, it's easy to hand-stitch them with a needle and thread 
just as you would a bugle bead!  To the cupcake 'liner' I outlined the chevron pattern with pieces of Pixies.

 And don't forget...you can add your own banners to the sticks or use the assortment packs,
which are available in the newest themes.

 Up next is a quick and easy idea for using the Pixies, while still creating a punch.
 I used three different colors and attached them as a border.  To make things even easier, I made
 sure that the height of the patterned paper was the same as the Pixies...no trimming needed! 

I chose to use white sequins for the snow, but you could replace these with small snips of white Pixies
I'm looking forward to finding even more creative ways to incorporate these fun embellishments!

Have a great Columbus weekend and Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!
