The biggest shopping day of the year is just around the corner, and the ATS design team has put together some fun, sparkly shopping projects to help inspire those shopping lists! (And maybe the shine from all the glitter will help wake you up in the middle of the night to hit the stores!)
If you've come from the fabulous blog of Karen S., you're in the right place! However, if you've just come across the hop, please visit All that Stickles for the full lineup.
Stickles fans, I have an up-cycled project for your viewing pleasure today! I am a stay-at-home mom and I go through Tide pods like no tomorrow. Every time I toss one of these in the recycle bin I think to myself, I can DO something with that container!! It's got a great lid, I can reach my hand in... hmmm. Not until now, have I figured out a way to reuse this container!! With Black Friday coming up, I am making my shopping list and saving my pennies! LIGHTBULB MOMENT!! I created a bank!
I love the Car Decals Cricut cart and decided to represent our Black Diamond Deals theme using Black Diamond Stickles on this super cute shopping mom. I imagine she is at Black Friday raking in the deals!!
Here's a closeup of her! She is mounted on the back of the Tide container. I did not remove the original label, rather I covered it with Washi tape and coordinating cardstock. Black Diamond Stickles has many other colors (blue, green, gold) sprinkled in there for an amazing sparkle and shine. Paprika Stickles as an accent just makes it pop!
On the back, my true intention is revealed!! YES!! I'd rather be shopping! The phrase also is from the Cricut cart Car Decals but the shoes are from Forever young. The Black Diamond and Paprika Stickles were applied here as well. And on top, a beautiful bloom from Jolee's Boutique.
QUICK TIP - running the die cuts through the Xyron and adding Stickles while it's still on the backing allows for more precise placement. When it's dry you can easily peel up the sticker and chip off or bend back any overhang of the Stickles.
Here's a closeup but it still doesn't do justice to the sparkle and shine! But I have a real cute up-cycled bank for my Black Friday foray!!
