Decorative Flair!

The beauty of Stampin' Up! Designer Series paper is the options available. At Convention, I won the very first door prize drawing! Part of my amazing gift was the new HAIKU paper. This is a perfect paper for me-- warm, bright colors, and soft organic patterns.

Here's two items I created with the paper:

One is a hat box I bought at Goodwill for $2.00. I traced the top and added a layer of coordinating paper around the band. For a bit of extra, I added 5/8" chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon.

The other object is a candy canister I had around for about a year! Opps! I never really knew what I wanted to do with it. I added some accents..using my coluzzle. The circle idea came from a card we made at convention that I have since lost so I can't share it. I changed the design a bit. I covered the wooden lid with an orange piece of the Haiku paper. I added a tag of More Mustard using my coluzzle and covered half of it in the green Haiku paper. The Bloom saying is from Bella's bloom, the free stamp set I won and the larger flower is from Eastern Blooms. I added some dimension by using brads in the flower center. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon. I also used my cropadile to add a jumbo brad.

I use these at workshops and to decorate my living room. Soon, Christmas will replace them and I will put them back in my stamp room!

Have a great fall weekend!

  4. Wow, those are too cute! Love the candy jar especially, what a great thing to put door prize slips in!

  5. How gorgeous is that paper. I love that hat box. Ive got this lolly jar at home its hideous its clear with a weird face molded into the glass and the lid is a blue hat. LOL I might dress "him" up.
