Back to School with Pink Paislee 47

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, August 16, 2012 @ 5:00 AM | , , ,

Hi everyone! Today it's my turn to post on the Pink Paislee blog and the theme of this week's projects is Back to School. I would love for you to stop on by and say hello ~ click HERE. :)
First up I have a gift bag shaped like a backpack that can easily hold a small gift for your student like a pack of gum, mints or even a gift card. What child, of any age, doesn't want $ to spend on new clothing for school and have fresh breath???
Using the template found here ~ click HERE ~ and fun patterned paper from the Declaration collection, I made the darling backpack box / gift bag.
One of the many things I love about Pink Paislee products is the versatility allowing you to mix and match items from multiple collections when creating! The layout shown below features a combination of fun and pretty products from the Declaration collection, the London Market collection, and the Spring Jubilee collection. For the title, I combined the London Market ~ Jumbo Numbers with letters from Wood Shop Alphabets ~ Lumber Yard and Wood Shop Alphabets ~ Timber.
Using a beautiful butterfly Spellbinders Wonderful Wings die, I cut Declaration ~ Block Party and Declaration ~ Firecracker patterned papers to create a butterfly embellishment. I fastened the layers together using a fun Vintage London Market ~ Spool Button and a pearl brad.
I added a die cut flower embellishment using Die-namics Pretty Posies along with a London Market ~ Collage Sheet of paper. To add a little color to the blossom, I rubbed an ink pad around the edges and stitched a button in the center.
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my Back to School themed projects as much as I enjoyed creating them! Please head on over to the Pink Paislee blog for further inspiration.

Be Sweet :)
