Wild Life Garland

Use a collection of “The Wild Life” Designer Dies and Stamps by
to create a custom garland for a themed party or to glam up a camper!

 I started with patterned papers and the “Into the Woods” and “Canoe” Die Sets
 and “Happy Camper” Die Set & Stamp Combo.  I used the “sign” die as a
 background for the tree motif.

 After die-cutting the canoe and paddle, I stamped the “At the lake” image
 using a Aegean Blue and Garden Grass Chalk Inks.  The top portion was inked 
green and then the blue was added and blended into the green before stamping onto
 one of the Neutrals papers.  The image was then die-cut and the canoe glued to the front.

 Each piece was then punched at the edges with a small hole punch and kraft 
twine was threaded through to tie the pieces together. 

You can add as many pieces as you’d like to create whatever length works 
best for your project.

Looks darling strung across a cabinet or window!

Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
