Dreamweaver Thursdays: Picnic Fun

Greetings! It's Dreamweaver Thursday, and I have a fun new project to share with you. The Stampendous! team is playing with a picnic theme this week, so I decided to go with that in a loose sort of way for my piece.

I took a plain old tag from an office supply store and made it into a fun Host gift tag. I sell Pampered Chef, and my fellow teamie Pam gave me a great idea! I mentioned that I was going to use the Apron die for  my project. She thought it would be fun to tie in the Pampered Chef aspect and perhaps add it to one of the "picnic" products I sell. I thought it was a brilliant idea!

I inked up the small square stamps from the Creative Palette Rectangles set with a red ink from Imagine Crafts. Next, I took the Apron stencil and I lightly inked it on to the tag, so that I could easily place the pieces of the die cut. I cut the apron, and glued it down. The Pampered Chef apron has white dots on black fabric, so I used a white Pentel gel pen to add the dots and company name. I then used embossing ink and Stamp N' Bond to adhere the beautiful holographic red glitter (from the Christmas Glitter Kit) to the edges of my tag. It's a pretty simple (and quick!) project, but that's perfect for a simple addition to a Host gift. Check out what I mean!

This is The Pampered Chef's Insulated Lunch Tote, and this tag really jazzes it up. Perfect present right there! I hope you like my tag. Please be sure to visit the rest of the gals that are posting today. Their blog links are below. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
