Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here. My little girl was the lucky recipient of a closet-full of costumes from one of my dance students. Inspired by the sequins, shiny fabrics and festive feel of the costumes, I created this layout using the new Sprinkle Punch.
After putting together most of my background using some papers and embellishments from Amy Tan’s new Hustle & Heart collection, I created a fun border between the top and bottom portions with some double-sided tape and punched sprinkles. I punched the sprinkles from foil papers by Bazzill for shine and sparkle. For even more metallic “wow”, I also used Heidi Swapp gold flakes.
I randomly pressed the sprinkles into the tape, not worrying too much about placement. I filled the gaps with the gold flakes, brushing off the excess.
I included some sprinkles underneath the polka dot acrylic paper to accent my embellishment cluster.
The sprinkle/gold flake border is so glam it could have been trim on one of the costumes! How darling would this technique be on a birthday card, party décor, or cupcake wrappers? Instead of gold flakes you could even use glitter or microbeads. The possibilities are endless!
