I'm back with another Sweet Stamp Shop creation. It's my day over on the SSS blog--so be sure to stop by there and leave some love!
I created two projects using the Sweet Tooth stamp set. For my first project, I was thinking of my nephew, Jackson. He is 5 1/2 and should be losing some teeth....or maybe soon? I knew that the little tooth image in this set would be perfect for a "tooth keeper" envelope album. It was fairly simple to make--I die cut the envelopes and put them together; stamped the image on the pocket for the tooth and journaling card; paper pieced a decoration for the front and cut some banners (to write the date when tooth fell out or was pulled out). Easy! I punched some holes and put them on a binder ring. Double EASY! OHHH! I just thought about how the pocket could hold the tooth and maybe a picture of the happy kid without a tooth! If the pocket is too small--it could be put in the envelope! FUN! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
The date when the tooth fell out (or was pulled out) goes on the banner.
I only decorated a couple of the envelopes--I put all the pieces inside each envelope so that the family can decorate it/journal/etc. together.
Just a closer view of the pieces.
I also wanted to make something different with the gum ball machine. I thought it would be fun to make some candy decorations....so I wrapped some paper around a candy bar, added some hand-dyed seam binding, paper pieced the gum ball machine, and added a sentiment. Triple EASY! I love how the gum balls are holiday colors! FUN!
I apologize for the horrible pic--that paper from SEI is metallic and super hard to photograph-but SUPER pretty!
That's it for me today--be sure to stop by the Sweet Stamp Shop blog for more info on this card and to see what the owner of SSS, Nicole, has been up to!
