Welcome. I am so excited about todays share. I rarely, as in almost never, come up with a cute box or favor all on my own. I did it! I created this cute little grave stone favor all by myself, no casing! Did I really just say “cute little gravestone favor” ?? I bet that’s never been said by anyone. Ever. By anyone. Anywhere. LOL. Stampin’ UP! released this new die called Party Pennants die this year in the annual catalog. I got it as one of my free items I earned. I will admit I haven’t used it much. I used the die to create the gravestones. You can see the video and the picture tutorial on how to put it all together. So easy and quick.
Tips & Tricks
- Saving Paper – Cut your basic gray card stock at 5 1/2″ x 2 3/4″, you’ll need two pieces. This size will fit perfectly over the pennant die. You can save a lot of paper by pre trimming it to fit your die shapes that you want.
- Stamp Customization – I did not want to use the Trick -or- Treat stamp in a long line the way it came. I customized this stamp by cutting it with craft and rubber scissors so that it would fit on my project the way I wanted it to. You can see the photo tutorial on how to do that on this blog post.
- Crinkle Paper – To create my Tangerine Tango crinkle paper I just used a scrap piece of card stock and cut it into very thin strips. Then I crinkled it all up in my hand. Super Simple.
Here is the stamp customization.
