Today I have a sweet birthday greeting in a tin box using the wonderful SABOR - Ole Sentimientos papers from our April Partner, available at Altered Pages HERE!!!


"Blow out the candles"



Supplies:
Tin 
Black Gesso
SABOR - Ole Sentimientos
Sabor - Ole Papel Picado
SABOR - Ole Cutouts
Bazzil-Flower
Tacky Glue
Dew Drops
Glue Stick

Sand front and back (outside) of tin to give it a little grit, paint with Black Gesso and let dry.

From a sheet of Sabor - Ole Papel Picado cut pieces of paper a little larger than the painted front and back, add a little pizzazz with a decorative edge paper punch!  Adhere to the front and back of the painted tin with Glue Stick .

Using all the pieces from the SABOR - Ole Cutouts  and SABOR - Ole Sentimientos decide what to include in the birthday greeting!
 
 


A great start, adhere backgrounds with Glue Stick, attach  SABOR - Ole Cutouts with Foam Dimensional Adhesives.  Fold Bazzil-Flower  in half and attach with Tacky Glue.

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up.

YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!

# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
