Hey stampers! I know I've been MIA and missed a couple of posts last week...I'm sorry! If you follow my Facebook page, I was able to let you know that I've been sick, and then trying to finish up my last Sale-A-Bration event so it was crazy days...this week and next won't be a whole lot better because I've got family visiting and then I'm going out of town but I'll do my best to get a few things posted!
This morning, I took my sweet Maddi down to a local bakery (shout out to Shelly Hargens at Sweet Swirls!) for a treat. While I was in there, I spotted these ADORABLE unicorn sugar cookies and had to get one just so I could make up some cute packaging for it!
I wanted to keep the focus on the adorable cookie so I kept the stamping to a minimum, which actually made this a super quick and easy project, too! I stamped the unicorn and sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock with VersaMark ink, then heat embossed them with gold embossing powder and cut them out with the coordinating framelits. I left the unicorn completely white, but colored her with Wink of Stella so she sparkles!
To make the tag, I cut a strip of Whisper White cardstock 1-7/8" wide and punched the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. Because the banner framelit I used to cut the sentiment is only large enough to cut the word "magical", I again stamped the sentiment in VersaMark at the top of the tag and embossed in gold. I layered the banner piece onto the tag, then added the unicorn, adhering her with Stampin' Dimensionals. Once all the pieces were on, I trimmed the bottom of the tag to the length I needed.
Even though they aren't shown in a current catalog, the Acetate Card Boxes from the Holiday Catalog are still available and are the perfect size for a special cookie like this one! They come in a package of 10 (#144628)...be sure to add a couple of packages to your next order so you'll have some on hand! Have you noticed the fun Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie pack in the Occasions Catalog? I added a small handfull of the dark pink shreddies to the box....so cute!
To finish it up, I tied the tag to the acetate box with a piece of 3/8" Gold Metallic-Edge ribbon and a bit of gold Mini Sequin Trim for extra sparkle!
This would be so adorable for any little girl...or even any big girl! I love it!
