Hey guys! Thank you for all of your birthday wishes! You are too sweet to me :) I had a great day and weekend and I believe you when you tell me that 30 is just the beginning!
I wanted to show you another gift idea that you could make for friends or loved ones this holiday. I used the Whimsy Stack which has been around for a couple of years. I love how we are DCWV are always ahead of the trend because 2 years later, this stack is right on with other lines that are out there!
The colors in the Whimsy Stack are gorgeous and I love the little owls, bunnies and birds.
First off, I covered the lid of a Altoids box. You could use an empty mint container and paint the outside of it to cover up the packaging. Or you can buy empty ones HERE. I used Mod Podge to glue down the paper, inked the edges and then applied another coat of Mod Podge.
When you open up the box you have 3 little coordinating magnets. I covered old game pieces or you can use some cut down wood scraps. I applied the paper to the game pieces in the same process as the cover. Mod Podge, ink, Mod Podge.
Added a magnet to the back of and there you have it! They are fun because the stick to the inside of the tin. You could easily tie a ribbon around the container and add a little tag.
I will be making a few sets of these for some neighbors but I think I will use some of our new Christmas papers. What do ya think?
Side note: I wanted to tell you a new way that I will be picking weekly giveaway winners. I see the traffic that our blog receives and I know a TON of you are stopping by everyday. Which I absolutely love!! But no one leaves me comments and I really want this blog to be interactive so I can hear from you and what you think of our products and our company! So every Monday I will pick a couple winners from the comments from the week before. So every day, be sure to leave a comment when you stop and see our projects! So today, I want to giveaway stacks to:
Beautiful Stack and what a great project!!thanks for sharing
