Only a few days left in this year, I just can't believe how time flies! Today I'll show you a little packaging for sparklers - this could be a nice gift if you're invited to some New Year's Party or for nice people in your life.Joy! Crafts Pigs set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock, colored them with Copic markers and cut them out.
Then I cut a 27.5 cm long and 6.5 cm wide stripe from green cardstock, scored and folded it at 18 cm and at 23.8 cm with the Scoring Board. A 19.3 cm long and 6 cm wide stripe of white cardstock is cut and then scored and folded at 12 cm, 13 cm and 14 cm. As I don't have a fireworks stamp, I stamped the flowers of the Penny Black Happy Bliss stamp set with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with golden embossing powder. Before stamping the image, I covered the birds and the flower stems so that I achieved a look like fireworks.Joy! Crafts Hole Puncher into it to hold the sparklers.
