I wanted to include a little home made something in my daughter's lolly bags for her party and came up with these. They're little books, and probably not much good for writing stories in, but perfect for a couple of phone numbers and small enough to fit in a handbag too.

7-7116E Simon
1-125E Precious

Spellbinders:

S4-116 Standard Circles Small
S4-125 Classic Scallop Circles Small

Spellbinders dies can be used to create stencils that can be used to mask areas off when working with Jac Paper and glitter.


Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

10-1023E White OP
10-1037E Blackbird

Spellbinders:

S2-048 Sprigs
S5-172 A2 Curved Matting Basics B

Other Materials Used:

Glitter
Jac paper
Cosmo Cricket Tiny Text 

Step 1
Cut a piece of Jac paper to the correct size and adhere it to a piece of cardstock. Cut out the centre of the backing paper with a Curved Matting Basics B die.


Step 2
Replace the Curved Matting Basics shape in the centre of the exposed Jac paper, and sprinkle yellow glitter onto the edge. Burnish the glitter well to ensure adhesion between each step - this will ensure there are no sticky bits left where subsequent glitter colours will stick.


Step 3
Remove the Curved Matting Basics shape and cut a couple of Sprig shapes from it. Apply these to the exposed centre of the card front, and sprinkle pink glitter onto the Jac paper. Burnish well.


Step 4
Remove the sprig shapes and apply blue/green glitter. Use this to complete a card.
