It's Hybrid Day and we have a few amazing designs from our talented team!
Designer Amy Martin created this stunning layout using traditional products mixed with a few FUN digital elements. Amy used digital Prima Fancies to highlight the bold felt flowers. Print the silhouettes on your paper first...then add your traditional products. Amy used Dude rub-ons and Loft 18 flowers or create lots of dimension. The adorable photo slipped in on top of a flower really helps it take center stage!
Isn't this altered pail just adorable? It is perfect for Easter egg hunting or for a gift container like Jessica Gordon made for her little niece, Emma! Jessica will now show us step-by-step how she created this bucket using traditional and digital products!
Here are the items you need:
1. After finding a new home for all of the flowers, I removed the labels from the pail, and then lightly sanded the lid. Then I temporarily removed the handle of the pail.
2. I cut the Coquette cardstock into a strip (about 12” x 4”). I wrapped the strip of paper around the outside of the pail, making sure to overlap the paper over the seam of the pail. From the inside of the pail, I put a pen mark indicating each of the holes for the handle.
3. Using a hole-punch, I punched holes for the handle to go through the paper (allowing for the slight difference in distance for when the paper would be placed inside the pail).
4. I placed the strip of paper on the inside of the pail, lined up the holes, and adhered it together at the overlap with double-sided tape.
5. Once I put the pail’s handle back on, I trimmed the top and bottom edges of the pail with grosgrain ribbon and tied a few ribbons to the handle as well.
6. Using the bottom rim of the lid, I traced two circles of cardboard (craft foam might also work) to fit inside the recessed part of the top of the lid.
7. I then flipped the lid over and traced around the outside of the lid onto another piece of the cardstock, to make a cover for the top of the lid.
8. Once the cardboard circles were trimmed to fit inside the lid, I adhered them one on top of the other with dabs of hot glue.
9. After cutting out the cardstock circle, I adhered it to the lid (over the cardboard circles), and lightly sanded the edges to give it a finished look. Then I embellished the top with flowers and a heart-shaped crystal.
10. To make the tag, I used a coordinating digital Coquette paper and digital Gem Silhouette monogram stamp to create the basic design on the computer. Then I printed it onto matte photo paper.
11. Then, I trimmed the edges using scalloped edge scissors, and mounted it on the reverse side of the same Coquette cardstock. I added a matching center kiss, and tied the tag to the pail with a little ribbon.
Try altering a few Prima Minnie Cans! It is so much fun to do and EVEN MORE fun to give-away!
