Happy Holidays, ‘Fetti Fans!

The last 2 days of CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS have been amazing and we have one more day, featuring DECOR & MORE, to share with you today!

Be sure to check out what the Confetti Crew came up with today!  There are links just below my project.

One of my best memories from my childhood is having luminarias line our street.  The one that I have designed to share with you today isn’t one that I would use to line the streets, but rather one to have inside in a centerpiece.  It’s easily re-created and you could use it for Thanksgiving and/Christmas…

To create this, I cut 3 LARGE EYELET COVER PANEL Confetti Cuts from our CLOUD WHITE cardstock and then lined them with vellum.  I adhered the 3 together with small pieces of CLOUD WHITE cardstock.

In the center is a fake candle to give off that glow through the vellum.  I’m sure I don’t even have to say it, but this is so much prettier in person!  It’s near impossible to capture the glow that shines through so nicely…

Ho, ho, ho off you go…

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans!

My project today is a take on the ol’ 2-4-6-8 box…

dsc_0561

I started out with a piece of brick cardstock measuring 6 x 11.

I scored at every 2.5″ (instead of the “traditional” 2″) to create a slightly larger box.  The flaps at the top are 1″ deep (and corner rounded) and the flaps on the bottom holding all together are 2.5.”

Along the flaps, I cut slightly smaller pieces of CLOUD WHITE cardstock, rounded the corners and then added Ice Stickles and flower soft for texture…

Inside this cute little box are Hershey Kisses and paper straws embellished with the VINTAGE ORNAMENT that says, “Believe”…perfectly fitting for a Santa themed box and a Christmas tree cut from the MERRY CHRISTMOOSE Confetti Cuts die set.

 . . . . .

Here I go sending you on your holly jolly way again to see what the Confetti Crew has come up with for today’s CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS!

KICKING OFF CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS

By Jen del Muro
on November 15, 2016

SHIPPING HOURS NOTICE:

Greeting’s ‘Fetti Fans!

Last year we did both “Happy Fall-idays” and “Crazy for Christmas” here on the Reverse Confetti blog and the blogs of our Confetti Crew and they were a hit!  As you know, we already did “Happy Fall-idays” this year and now it’s time for CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS!

Be prepared to be inspired!  For 3 days we are going to share Christmas inspired projects with you.  Today, we are featuring projects created with our TREAT TUBE TOPPER Confetti Cuts that we introduced earlier this holiday season.  This Confetti Cuts die and Treat Tubes can work for any holiday, season or reason, making them perfect to keep on your desk year round.

cfc_treattubes

Be sure to check out the links to the Confetti Crew below my project pictures.  You don’t want to miss what they have created!

. . . . .

My project today, of course, features the TREAT TUBE TOPPER Confetti Cuts die along with the TREAT TUBES that it coordinates with.  The die comes with 6 treat tubes and we sell sets of 6 treat tubes separately (eek, try saying that 3x fast).

We’re featuring this die and packaging today because these make the perfect little gift for hostesses, friends, teachers and co-workers (well, everybody, really!)

dsc_0529

The previous projects that I have shown using the TREAT TUBE TOPPERS Confetti Cuts die have used the whole die on top or on top and bottom.  I did something just a tiny bit different on this project.

As you can see, the full topper is on the top of tube.  On the bottom I cut the topper at the first dashed line from the bottom and then wrapped it around the bottom of the tube.

dsc_0535

The TREAT TUBE is filled with chocolate balls that I bought in bulk from WinCo.  These treats come together so swiftly and have a little stash of goodies like this helps make mass production a breeze.

To embellish the TREAT TUBE TOPPER, I added the red and white stripe paper from VERY MERRY 6×6 Paper Pad.  On the top, I added a ribbon, silver jingle bells (bought on clearance last year at Hobby Lobby) and a tag that is cut from the new TALL TAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set.  The sentiment is part of one of the sentiments from the Halloween TREAT YO’ SELF stamp set.  I cut a second tag from the green/white sentiment paper (also in the VERY MERRY 6×6 Paper Pad) and cut it down to fit as a topper.  The heart is cut from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set and is stamped with the small dots from the WHOLE LOTTA DOTS stamp set.

It’s time for me to send you on your holly jolly way to see more inspiration using this fun and unique product from Reverse Confetti.  Be ready to say “oh, how cute is that!?” as some of these projects are just plain a-dor-able!

CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS: GIFT GIVING

By Jen del Muro
on November 11, 2015

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to our second day of CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS!

Today, we are filling you up with inspirational GIFT GIVING ideas!

CrazyForChristmas_2GiftGiving

. . . . .

I think that we can all relate to food related gifts when it comes to the holidays.  I know that I seem to both give and receive plenty of them, and that is why I chose to do a food related item for our GIFT GIVING segment of CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS.

I love to bake and give cookies and breads and that is where this idea started.  However, I do have to admit that I ran a little short on time and had to actually buy the loaf of bread that is featured below.  It is “fresh baked,” just not by yours truly…

DSC06012

I wrapped the bread (baked at a local bakery) in parchment paper.  I had planned to tape down the edges of the parchment paper and simply put the wrap around it.  Well, I learned something…nothing sticks to parchment paper.  I tried 5 different tapes before throwing my hands in the air in need of having to coming up with plan B to keep the parchment paper actually on the bread.  This problem lead to a great (in my humble opinion) design solution…CAPPUCCINO TWINE wrapped around the the loaf of bread 3 times.  After the twine (and the parchment paper) were securely in place, I added the belly band…

DSC06013

The belly band consist of a few different pieces:

-a kraft strip of cardstock that is run through the paper crimper (again, yes, I still own one of those!)

-a cream strip of cardstock that is stamped repeatedly with the “Fresh Baked” sentiment from the new “WITH LOVE” stamp set

-a large wreath created from 2 cuts of the WREATHS Confetti Cuts die set

-an embellishment consisting of the large heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set, a button tied off with CAPPUCCINO TWINE and jingle bells and the “with love” sentiment from the WITH LOVE stamp set

DSC06028

Whether you are baking or buying your bread/treats this year, this is a fun and easy way to dress up the packaging and make it more personal.

. . . . .

Of course, we have even more inspiration waiting for you!

CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS: READY TO PARTY

By Jen del Muro
on November 10, 2015

Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the first day of our three day event, CRAZY FOR CHRISTMAS!

Over the next three days we are going to give you the ultimate in Christmas inspiration!  Today, we “READY TO PARTY!”  You’ll see all things party related using Reverse Confetti products.

A full list of Confetti Crew members participating today is toward the end of this post.  Be sure to stop by at each blog so you don’t miss a thing!

. . . . .

Today, I am sharing a simple HOT COCOA BAR.  I say “simple” because this really came together quite quickly.  I’ve seen much more elaborate set-ups, but I wanted to share something that was definitely “do-able.”

DSC06304

Included in this HOT COCOA BAR:

-Cocoa Mix

-Mugs with “Swizzle Sticks” (embellished paper straws)

-Chocolate Dipped Straws (easily homemade, but these are from Home Goods)

-Condiments: Mints, Cookies and Jumbo Marshmallows

Each of the labels is created from the new GIFT CARD HOLDER TAG Confetti Cuts die.  To embellish, I used the LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die set, the new HANG UPS Confetti Cuts die set, LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set, CIRCLES ‘N SCALLOPS Confetti Cuts die set and the STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts die set.  The lettering is all done with the new ALPHABETICAL Confetti Cuts stamp set.

Although the chocolate dipped straws are store bought, I did personalize them a little by adding the word “STIR” using Brilliance Graphite Black Pigment Ink…

DSC06278

The swizzle sticks are green and white paper straws that I picked up in the Michaels dollar section and are embellished with snowflakes from the LAYERED SNOWFLAKE Confetti Cuts die set (heart from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set)…
