The May Arts & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 3
Are you having a blast this week? We know we are. May Arts Ribbon and G45 are a match made in heaven! Their designers and our Design Team have been knocking it out of the park so far this week. Well, the fun doesn't end here. Today, Maggi Harding, Danielle Copley, and Solange Marques have three perfect projects using G45 Staples, paper, and May Arts Ribbon for us today. Let's get into the fun!
"My design team box came the other day and it was packed to the rim with new staples and papers, it was a little slice of heaven for sure! I was having a scrappy weekend at my house, so five of my scrappy bff's got to watch me unpack my box. Yep, they all turned green with envy as I removed each item from what seemed like a bottomless box of scrappy goodies! I immediately zeroed in on the Enchanted Forest collection and all the wonderful new Staples!
Enchanted Forest has great sentiments on its cut-aparts that work great for a wedding so I created a tiny mini that would fit inside the regular sized Policy Envelope. It'll be a great mini/card to include with a shower or wedding gift. The mini is just two pieces of 8 3/4" x 6 3/4" black cardstock folded in half to create 4 pages, giving the mini 8 pages counting fronts and backs. Then I punched two tiny holes in the center, on the fold, and bound the mini together with a 1/4" piece of May Arts silk ribbon. I put photo mats in the mini as well as tags for journaling.
The mini fits nicely inside the Policy Envelope that I embellished with a Kraft Imagine Tag. I backed the Imagine cut out with black paper so that the Imagine word would really stand out, and then I used some cut-aparts and patterned paper to embellish the tag. I added some interest to the cut-aparts by die cutting one of them with a Spellbinders frame. Finally I added a pretty bow that I tied with May Arts silk and leaves ribbons and glued the tag to the front of the Policy Envelope." ~Maggi

"Using a Graphic 45 Matchbook Box, I created a fun Easter box for candy. The March sheets of Children’s Hour provided beautiful images to create a layered scene. I love layering multiple bits of fussy cuts of the same image to add a 3-D effect to my little scene. The scene is inspired by traditional Easter activities of children sitting in the grass after Easter egg hunting. Beautiful May Art ribbons add a festive effect and their unique leaf ribbon is so perfect for surrounding the birds nest." ~Danielle
