Papertrey Ink Blog Hop
Today I am sharing a project I made for tonights Papertrey Inks blog hop. The theme today was to do something inspired by fall. I chose to use fall colors for my project because I love them so much. The dark, rich colors are so beautiful. I was inspired to use this template from Lauren Meander because it holds a baby jar from Yankee Candle. I love to give these little baby jars as gifts, and this little box holds a baby jar perfectly, as you can see if you scroll down a little bit. I used Enchanted Evening cardstock coupled with the Bird Watching set from PTI. I watched Lauren Meanders video on how to use binder clips to make a fabulous handle. She is so creative, I never would have thought to do this. You can see the video here. I was going to leave the top with just the handles, but it looked to plain for me, so I took out some fabric flowers, colored them with my Copic markers and attached them with a pearl brad. The flowers fit perfectly on the top and match great with the birds from the front. Seriously, I love my Copic markers, they are the only markers I have been happy with. I love how they don't leave shadows.
