Earlier this week, I showed you a cute little altered container that we made at my Stamp Club: Altered Button Container.
Today, I'm using the same basic concept to create a beautiful Easter Bonnet!
I think this is the MOST darling little container! Perfect for holding some jelly beans or other Easter treats! It makes me think of the song my grandma always sang to me: ♪ ♫ In my Easter Bonnet, with all the frills upon it, I'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade! ♪ ♫
Project Details: I used the Scallop Circle Die to cut out the brim of the hat from Pear Pizzazz card stock, then dry embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder (seriously, I use this folder for everything, don't I?). The top of the hat is punched with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch, then embossed with the same texture.
The striped paper is from the Springtime Vintage DSP. I cut a 1/2" x 9" strip to go around the base, and a 3/8" x 9 strip to go around the lid. I lined the inside with coordinating paper by punching a 2-1/2" circle, then triming about a 1/16" all the way around so it would fit inside. Everything is held together with Sticky Strip.
Along the brim of the hat, I used pulled-scrunchy Baja Breeze Seam Binding adhered with more Sticky Strip.
The back of the hat has three Rosettes that I colored with Pear Pizzazz and Baja Breeze Markers and topped with Pearl Jewels. So lovely! TIP: Even though the Pearls have sticky on the back, mine were falling off of the rosette centers, so I recommend using Tombow Multipurpose Glue or Crystal Effects to adhere them.
Complete Supplies List:
- Paper—Springtime Vintage DSP, Pear Pizzazz and Baja Breeze markers, Pear Pizzazz card stock
- Accessories—Trinket Container, Pearl Jewels, Baja Breeze Seam Binding, Rosettes, Vintage Wallpaper Folder
- Tools—Tombow Multipurpose Glue, Scallop Circle Die, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, Sticky Strip, SNAIL
Occasions Mini Carryover Items
Stampin' Up! has just announced which Occasions Mini Catalog items have been carried over (will still be available). Yay! Here's the complete list: Occasions Mini Catalog Carryover Items List – PDF
I'm SO happy that at least some of the Seam Binding is there—Rose Red, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake are going to be available. Wonder why we can't still have Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla?! Weird!
I'm happy that Windowpanes are staying! And, Baja Breeze Glass Glitter (but not the other colors). And, Red Glimmer Paper! Woohoo! And, the Game Spinner Hands (thank goodness, since I haven't had much of a chance to use them). And, the pretty Trinket Keys and Trinket Crowns! Yesssss!
I was surprised to see that the popular First Edition DSP made it on the list! Could this mean that it will still be in the new catalog?! Hmmm. And, what about the Springtime Vintage and Sweet Stitches fabrics! They are still there, too, and I would have expected those to be gone, especially when the DSP that matches them are gone. Very curious indeed!
Of course, most of the non-consumable tools have stayed, including the Framed Tulips Folder, Petal Cone and Fun Flowers Dies, and Blossom Petals and Build-A-Cupcake two-step punches! No surprise there.
I was sad to see the Rosettes didn't make the list. They are just so pretty on projects like the one I've shown today! Get them now, while they are still available!
As far as stamp sets go, Stampin' Up! doesn't like to tell us which of the Mini Catalog stamp sets may or may not make it real catalog coming out in July. But, I do know that the Bold Blossom set is in the Summer Mini Catalog. That is the first time I've seen a stamp set featured in a subsequent Mini. Obviously, Stampin' Up! likes to mix it up with unprecedented surprises (which is why I still haven't lost hope in getting my Bliss set back! *wink*)
If your favorite Occasions Mini items didn't make the list, don't it may be gone for good! Don't miss out! Make sure that you order online today!
Hope you're having a great weekend!
