DSP is for PAPER

As promised, here are some fun projects for you to use with Stampin’ Up!s fabulous Designer Series Paper (DSP) and one more way to take advantage of the the BUY 3 GET ONE FREE August Special! Here is the first project:
Basket o' Tags
and here is another fun DSP project that my 2010/11 Hostesses made at the Hostess Appreciation Party in July:

Stampin’ Up! Supplies needed: DSP, Taffeta Ribbon, Fleurettes II, Antique Brads, Ink Refill, Sticky Strip, Stampin’ Dimensional.
Optional SU! Supplies: Jewelry Tag punch, stamps, ink.
Other Supplies: Small acrylic photo frame, post-it notes.

This super-easy project begins with DYING the fleurette (handmade, crocheted flower).

  1. Place approx. 3-4 tablespoons of water in a small bowl. Add a few drops of re-inker color and mix into the water. 
  2. Drop your flower/fleurette into the water and submerge for 30-45 seconds. Hint: The longer you leave it in, the darker the resulting color.
  3. Remove fleurette and place on a stack of paper towels. Blot, allow to dry.

It’s really that easy!

Instructions for the rest of the project:

  1. Cut a piece of DSP the same size as your frame and slide it into the frame. 
  2. Place a line of sticky strip across the top (really the bottom) of the frame where your ribbon will be “pinched” or folded across. Note: The frame will be laid down horizontally instead of standing vertically like a frame.
  3. Add an antique brad to your dried fleurette and attach with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  4. Finish it off by adding a pad of post it notes.
