OnStage Display Wrap Up!
Today I’m sharing the last of the OnStage Displays that I created. If you have missed them, I hope you will take a minute and scroll through my blog to visit. Today is the OnStage Display wrap up.
I’ve been a display stamper for many years and I’ve always enjoyed the challenge. I remember the first time I was sent a new box of products to create with almost 9 years ago. I always get the jitters on how I’m going to create so many displays with only a few products. Once I feel the pressure of creating, the challenge is on.
It’s Literally a Wrap!
My projects I’m sharing today literally speak to wrapping it up! This year I didn’t do as many 3D projects as I have in the past. That part of my mojo department was not clicking I guess.
One project I loved was this sweet little cone.
I’ve always loved making these cones because they are super simple and easy to fill with the tasty treat you desire. I created the cone by simply using a 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper folded into a cone. I always take the top and fold it over and then add a pretty topper.
When I created the topper for this cone I fell in love with the color combination just as much as the actual products. The Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Bunch, and Bermuda Bay scream spring/summer. This combination is so fresh and fun and I can see using it on so many other projects. My favorite product on this cone is the Lemon Lime Twist ribbon. Isn’t that a beautiful pop of color?
If you are looking to create favors and need something quick and easy, this cone is one I always fall back on. They are quickly duplicatable and always have a wow appeal.
Tip: To keep the cone sealed I used the Tear Tape Adhesive. This adhesive is great for keeping boxes and favors sealed.
Quick and Easy Pocket Bag
My last project is another quick and easy favor and can be used to hold a gift card or a candy bar.
To create this fun bag, I simply cut down both the edges of the bag and folded the top portion over and attached it using Fast Fuse. I placed a piece of the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper on the inside and embellished the front.
I reverted back to a few of my favorite thinlits, Sunshine Wishes and the Stitched Shapes Framelits along with the Label Me Pretty stamp set.
Tips & Tricks
- Once I die cut the heart from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits using Watercolor Paper, I watercolored over the heart using Berry Bunch.
- I die cut a piece of the Bundle of Love DSP using the Stitched Shapes Framelits then attached it to a Delicate White Doily. I folded the doily over so only 3/4 of the doily was seen on the outside of the pocket. The Hearts and Stars Elements coordinated perfectly with the other hearts. Notice that I attached the wooden heart using a stapler.
- The greeting was stamped using Fresh Fig ink onto Fresh Fig cardstock and punched out using the Sweetheart Punch. This punch is on sale and retiring. Click HERE to order this punch before it’s gone.
- Lastly, I used a sponge dauber to sponge over the tiny wooden heart. After I finished sponging the heart I placed the tiny heart next to the greeting using a Mini Glue Dot.
