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!
Just a couple more days left of Sale-A-Bration...have you earned all the products you want before they're gone? Make sure your order is finalized by May 31st, and let me know if you have any questions!
Until next time...happy stampin'!
