Happy Monday!! It's week 15 of WWYS and I'm so glad you're here! This week's challenge is to use Stampin' Ups! B.Y.O.P. I love this set and recently used it for my son's 13th birthday. It was the perfect choice for him because he is just not that fancy (some people aren't, no big deal!)! I made him the green striped box with matching tag that you see in the background of these pics. It was pretty funny-the day I sat down to work on this project I was not feeling well. When I'm not feeling well I am not very creative. I wondered if my son still had his tag lying around somewhere and surprisingly he did. More surprisingly, he had carefully propped it up on his bookshelf where it was proudly displayed (oh yeah, he's my boy!). I asked to borrow it for my project and he handed it over but made it clear that I was to return it. Hahaha! So....altering it or embellishing it for my project was out! BUT! I thought it was important to show you that sometimes you just don't have to be that fancy for something to be done well. Know who you are making your project for and do something they will love. I'm so glad my son liked the simplicity of his box and tag-What a crack up!
Anyways, I thought I should probably do something a little bit more complicated for this post... So I made a super-mini, mini treatbag thinlit project. It's just the right size for giving someone a wad of cash or a gift card so that they can B.Y.O.P. (Buy Your Own Present).
I saw the idea for this on one of Stampin' Ups! catalog launch videos. I just cut out two of the small pieces of the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit and pieced them together (with a little extra scoring and snipping). I used the Irresistably Yours DSP with the star pattern and used a sponge dauber to give it some color in Smoky Slate. I paired it with Pacific Point and Whisper White paper and ribbon and Wa-La! What a cute little gift package!
I hope you liked my project this week. It's a fun and different way to use the Mini Treatbag Thinlits. Don't forget to head over to What Will You Stamp? to check out what the rest of the design team made this week. It's always fun to look through their projects! Here's a gander at what the whole set looks like. There is a lot to choose from. I can't wait to get my hands on the one for "baby."
Do you have this stamp set? If you do, we'd love to have you join us. Make a project using B.Y.O.P and share it with us over at the WWYS challenge blog. We can't wait to see What Will You Stamp?
Thanks for stopping by! See you next week for more WWYS!
