It's a PARTAY...


In searching for just the right paper and stamps to create my Color Throwdown Challenge example, I came across something in my kitchen cupboard...Something I purchased A LONG TIME AGO to give away as a gift...I never got around to altering it up...UNTIL TODAY!  I knew it was the PERFECT item to alter for my color THROWDOWN this month...I'm repurposing, recycling...and HAVING A PARTAY!  LOL...

So did you see the original post for my Color Throwdown #2?  Do you LOVE the colors?  Well, here's my take on the color palate...

Yes, it's a popsicle gift set...hmmsnnhhh...ADULT POPSICLE GIFT SET if you will...I found this little package at Bed Bath and Beyond a while ago and it's been waiting patiently to be altered.  Today was the day to use it!  I took the packaging apart (the plastic was like a cover) and set out to make a template of the paper portion of the packaging.  After making the template in Bazzill Blossom cardstock, I continued to alter it by selecting some patterned paper...Kaleidoscope Girls, to be exact.  The pink plaid worked perfectly to wrap around those flavoring vials!  All it needed now was some STAMPING so I pulled out two sets I thought would work perfectly:  T2990 Sweet Goodies and one of my favorite hostess level A sets, TA8324 Whoo Loves Ya?

First I wrapped the vials with patterned paper and threaded them through the plastic handle.

Then I stamped the Bazzill Blossom cardstock using Versamagic White ink. 
Then I put the package together and attached some green ribbon. 

After that, I stamped the sentiment twice (Whooo Me?) and cut it out in a tag shape, poked a hole and threaded some green bakers twine to tie in a bow.

Next, I stamped some little flowers with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my Copics:  YG06, 11; R20, 35, 85.  I attached the flowers with a pop dot to some green cardstock (upcycled from a set of green cards). 

Finally, I stamped the circular sentiment, punched it out with my Classic Circles Nesties then cut a matching scalloped circle to finish it off...Oh wait...I had to add some BLING too!!! LOL
Hope you enjoyed this little project and I would like to encourage you to join me this month in the color challenge inspired by Color Throwdown #2
