How Charming


Continuing on with my Simply Adorned goodies, here is another use.

Let’s say you are getting married and want to give your bridesmaids or special friends an extra special gift – Simply Adorn them!

I used the new Milk Carton die with my Sizzix Big Shot to make a Certainly  Celery milk carton (so cute!). I then cut out a border of some Sweet Pea designer paper and adhered it along the bottom for a flower garden effect.

If I was giving this as a gift, I’d either put a necklace or bracelet chain inside to match the super cute charm on the outside.

For this charm, it is the 5/8″ square charm from the Simply Adorned line. I added a square of Sweet Pea designer paper on the inside. I stamped it with the swirl from Tiny Tags in Chocolate Chip and added a strip of Barely Banana cardstock on which I’d stamped “friend” again from Tiny Tags. If you see that tiny little heart atop the swirl, it is from the remnant little hearts you get when you use the Pinking Hearts Border Punch!

I ran some designer paper through my Sizzix with the Lots of Tags sizzlet and folded it over the top of the carton, punched a couple of holes with my Crop-A-Dile and threaded ribbon through. The charm is tied on with linen thread.
