Watermellon Juice


Today I have a super fun project to share with you! I used Graciellie's newest release (Happiness) to create a tag for a pillow box gift. Don't you just love the fun jar of watermelon juice and all the happy sentiments to go with it?!



To create my project I:
  • traced and cut out my pillow box using a template from Mirkwood Designs
  • splattered distress ink (pine needles/worn lipstick/candied apple) over my white box before assembling
  • wrapped a piece of white lace around the bottom of my box
  • wrapped a piece of crimped white cardstock around the middle
  • punched a piece of red cardstock with a Martha Stewart deep edge punch and wrapped it around the white crimped piece
  • colored my jar of watermelon juice with Prismacolor Pencils and added glitter and a sentiment 
  • wrapped green baker's twine around the box long-ways and tied it through the juice jar tag
