Cocktail Holder

Total Fun Project!  I did a Facebook Live video a few weeks ago showing how I made these.  They are so fun and easy to make that you could make as a fun party favor in no time. 

The Rainbow Glimmer Paper is a definite personal favorite and it is the perfect thickness for this project.  Tie it off with Metallic Mesh Ribbon from the 2020 holiday catalog, and a tag... Love this project. 


Project Details:

  • cut Rainbow Glimmer paper to 5-1/2 x 9
  • score it at 3-3/4 and 4-1/4 on both sides... along 5-1/2 side
  • score at 1/2" on the long side

Here is a close-up of the tag I made.  I stamped the small word phrases in Melon Mambo ink and the word Cocktails in Mango Melody.  Take a scrap piece of Whisper white and stamp the glass in Mango Melody, filler glass stamp in Mango Melody then cut die.  Use a Dimensional to add the glass to the tag.

Arrange A Wreath - Christmas

Hi There... I started posting my projects I made with the Arrange A Wreath Bundle a while ago and I don't what happened.  Or I should say, I do not know where the time has gone! 

Although this is a relatively simple card, I love using the Technique = Ink Stamping with an Embossing Folder.  It is such a great way to change up the look or show off the embossing folders detail. 

Here I have used the Pinewood Planks folder, but before embossing, I tapped my Early Espresso ink pad on the raised details of the folder.  The important step to remember when doing this, Do Not Press Hard with your ink pad.  You just want the ink on that raised detail of your embossing folder.  After you are done, a good rinse under the sink will clean any ink off when using our Classic ink pads. 


Card Details:

  • Cherry Cobbler CS for card base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • You will need another piece of Cherry Cobbler 3-1/4 x 3-1/4 for the wreath die
  • Crumb Cake CS 4-1/8 x 5-3/8
  • Whisper White CS
    • 3-5/8 x 3-5/8 for the wreath
    • 4 x 5-1/4 for inside
    • 1-1/2 x 2 for sign
