Let's party! (There are A LOT of pictures in this post by the way!)
For this party I used both the new Flip Flop set and the Sunshine dies along with other fabulous LID products! The gumballs and licorice are proudly displayed on a cake stand that I made myself!
Here is a closeup of the licorice jar with the lid on. I used the Lil' Inker Designs large banner die for the clear tag. I found some FUN duct tape (the polka dots) and attached it to the top of the tag and then attached the sun die cuts as well.
Aren't the suns so fun in different, non-traditional colors? I LOVE how they layer on top of each other so well too! They just pop against all of the rainbow colors! I punched a couple holes in the plastic tag and tied my Twinery Charcoal twine around the jar to hold the tag in place.
And the candy jar...
For the tag on this jar, I used the frame die from the Flags & Tags set. It is kind of hard to see on this picture. I again layered the suns and stamped a cute sentiment from the Sunshine set on a flag die cut from the Sentiment Flag Additions set. I again punched a hole in the top of the frame and tied it to the jar with Charcoal twine from The Twinery.
The bottles of pop are my favorite part of this set! I took the labels off the bottles and then wrapped them with the polka dotted duct tape.
I then created a bottle tag from a piece of clear plastic with the large banner die and cut a circle in the top of it with a circle Nestie. I scored it at about 2 inches and then folded it over. I stamped a few of the sentiments from the new sets on cardstock and attached it to the tag. To create the duct tape flip flops, I stuck the duct tape to a piece of scrap cardstock and then die cut them and attached them to the tag. I finished it off with another piece of Charcoal twine.
I have to point out the "man" sandals here!! I love that there is such a versatile option to this set!
Here is a closeup of the tags on the bottles.
I want to share a quick tip with you today too. I didn't like that there were some numbers stamped on the top of the bottles. It was distracting to me. So, I discovered an easy way to get rid of those ugly letters & numbers.
Take a sanding block (or a piece of sand paper) and lightly rub it across the numbers.
It comes right off and cleans up the bottle easily making it much prettier when all decorated up!
Don't forget that these items are available now in the Lil' Inker store!
