Howdy there, ‘Fetti Fans!

Anyone else excited about this weekend?  You probably already know, but in case you didn’t…Saturday is WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!  We have a very special announcement to make on Saturday, so stay tuned you won’t want to miss it!

It’s Thursday and time for a great Confetti Camera where you will learn how to make an adorably scary tote!

In this weekly segment, one of the Confetti Crew designers will have the camera on both themselves, as a designer, and on their Reverse Confetti creations. For this round, you’ll get a dose of Reverse Confetti inspiration from a fun tip or technique from each of our designers. A couple of things to note:

1) This segment will not “air” if there is a different post scheduled for that day, such on Sketch for You to Try on the 1st of each month or on a hop or sneak peek day.

2) Each designer will answer the same set of questions/show a tip until we have featured every Confetti Crew Design Team Member (then it’s a new round with new questions/theme). To see previous Confetti Camera post, simply click on “Confetti Camera” under the categories link on our sidebar.

3) For this round we are focusing on ABC (anything but a card) projects.  Keep your eyes peeled for some fabulous ways to use your Reverse Confetti stamps!

Today on Confetti Camera we have the super fun and wildly talented, HEATHER PULVIRENTI

Hi ‘Fetti Fans! Heather P. here today to share a frightfully fun Frankenstein treat tote I created entirely from Confetti Cuts! I had such a blast putting together the pink monster for September’s Color Challenge, and wanted to see what else I could come up with.  With the great range of Reverse Confetti die shapes, the possibilities are endless!

To create the tote, I used the following Confetti Cuts to cut out my pieces:

Tagged Tote (tote base and eyes)

Treat Tote (Frank’s hair)

Office Edges (scars/stitches)

Fresh ‘n Fruity (larger eye)

Circles ‘n Scallops (smaller eye)

Carton Cuties (nose)

Let’s Chill (glitter neck bolts)

Doin’ the Wave (smile)

Once I had all the elements ready to go, assembly was a breeze! First, I started by adhering the sides and bottom of the Tagged Tote, then attaching the black card stock for Frankenstein’s hair.  Next, I adhered the smaller white card stock circle directly on the tote base, then added the larger white card stock circle with pop dots before adding in the nose piece.

I then adhered the two black scars (wrapping around the edges of the tote), and the red, squiggly mouth.  An exacto knife was used to cut a slit on each side of the tote to hold the glitter card stock neck bolts.  Glossy accents were then added to the gray card stock pupils, two black scars and red mouth.

While the glossy accents were drying, I die cut a tag using the Give Thanks Confetti Cuts frame on a piece of turquoise polka dot patterned paper. I then stamped one of the sentiments from Spooky Sentiments in versamark ink before heat embossing it with white embossing powder.  I punched a hole in the top of the tag, then secured it to a cellophane treat bag with orange twine and a yellow clothespin.  To finish up, I placed the treat into the tote.

Well, that wraps it up for me today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for more Reverse Confetti inspiration!
