Welcome to the first ever Ultimate Pink Blog Hop – My name is Mary Ellen (M.E.) Stites and I am happy you stopped by! Today I am just one stop in a collection of amazing ideas from Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who live all over the world. We are featuring many shades of pink, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Join us as we craft Pink for one day. Makers worldwide united in creativity.
Many of us have been touched in some way by Cancer so today we honor the fighter!
When I was planning this project I wanted to celebrate! Whether that is the "all clear" or just finishing one of the stages of the battle. Whatever it is, we celebrate the step. What better way than a gift that says "there is much to celebrate"?!
Start out with a simple wrap on your bottle of choice and don't limit it to just your favorite beverage. What about your favorite bath time bubbly?! Right?! ADorBs! Who wouldn't love a dressed up bottle? This gift says it all, the message we all need to hear is all right there.
I cut some matching blushing bride paper with the heart die from the Sunshine Wishes thinlits set. This is such a fun heart shape, that "scribble type" look that is so popular right now. I added the word hope from the same thinlit package cutting it out of very vanilla card stock and highlighting it with some Wink of Stella for some extra glimmer, then add a few sequins from the Fancy Frost Sequins package to finish this layer off.
Time to wrap up the bottle. OH-My-Garsh I love these big gusseted cellophane bags! Not only will it fit this big bottle of bubbly but imagine making up a big batch of your favorite caramel corn tying it up and adding a fun tag for the teacher, mailman, bank teller, or even your best friend! The possibilities are endless.
But we are not done yet. We need to "tie it all up with a bow"! In this case a wonderful tag with a pink ribbon of course. Watch the video in this post to see how this gets cut and goes together. There is a die that makes it SO easy-peasy with matching stamps that fit the tags perfectly! Click on the links in my product list below to get more details about each product or to order now. Because I know you will want have this in your craft box for all those holiday parties and hostesses.
