Well, I warned you!
Maybe it was the color that got me--Stampin' Up calls it "Blushing Bride."
Or maybe it was the French signboard lettering in my favorite white type.
Or maybe it was the crispness of the slightly transparent bag, or
the dull earthiness of the pink on the corregated cup holders.
Whatever it was, these pink Starbucks things have really gotten me inspired!
Everyone knows about my nutty little addiction, so now people are saving cupholders for me. The barrista now recognizes me as the "paper crafting lady," so he gave me a few pastry holders to play with. I went through my craft stash and found some cute assessories:
to make a holder for this 3-D window card that I made with
an image from the Graphics Fairy.
I folded the doily, taped it on, fan-folded a medallion, added some ribbon:
And the holder was ready for the card :
It's kinda trendy right now to use this type of bag for gifts,
and you can find them at craft supply places and Stampin' Up.
How fun though to repurpose!
(Guess you can't get a messy pastry, or just wrap it in a napkin and take the bag as a bonus!)
You can see my Starbucks treat cup here and
my staging for a French dress tag using the pink papers here.
This week I enjoyed a mini "vacation" in Germany compliments of Brittany at
The Rococo Roamer. I loved the portraits on the wall of the Munich Residenz in
gilded rococo frames. (My 3-D card has some similarities...)
And another mini "vacation," this time not from Brittany, but in Brittany, brought to us by Magali at The Little White House on the Seaside:
Once off vacation, and back in the craft room, :-), I found Debby Ray's plastic floor mat turned wrought iron wall hanging to bring an expensive and exotic look to
any well-traveled lady's home. Check out her post at My Favorite Things to
see how to make this 7.00 wall hanging!
Now let's see what's inspiring you this week! Please be sure to put a link on your blog back to mine. Also, I would love for you to become a follower if you haven't already.
