...with a new themed format and a mini-tutorial!
Hip Hop everyone!
I'm so excited about our first themed HIP HOP today with UNITY Stamp Co! Today we are kicking of a 'new and improved' Hip Hop of sorts ;)...we have THEMES galore planned for you over the next several months and I'm SO psyched!
Today we kick this all off with a "Halloween Treat Theme". You can create Halloween treat holders, treat ideas, ANYTHING treat-related for the upcoming SPOOKTACULAR holiday ;) I chose to create a little treat purse for my little one to bring to preschool w/ her and am filling it w/ lollipops inside for her to bring to her classmates. She is in a small class of 9 kids so this was perfect for her :)
I started out with a cute little wooden purse that my friend Kelly sent me. You can get these at Hobby Lobby, Michael's, etc. for maybe $3 or $4 :)
Scor-Tape is going to be your best friend for this project. I just traced along the base of the purse with a hobby knife and cut cardstock to match the shape of the purse:
I then took some more Cosmo Cricket Matilda DP and created a border/trim for the purse. Webster's Pages Bloomers were the PERFECT addition to make this sweet and girly, just like my little Ava:
Then I took the pumpkin stamp and the "Happy Halloween" sentiment from the September Kit of the Month and created two tags, attached w/ some fun crinkle ribbon. I paper-pieced the pumpkins on one tag, stamping the "Happy Halloween" on the other tag:
Think she likes the finished product? I'm thinkin' maybe ;)
