Can't get Enough of The Wild Splendor

These are the favors I made for my staff.  I coordinate our Thanksgiving potluck luncheon at work.  Each year I leave the staff with some 'Crafty Food for Thought'.  Check out my Bottle water toppers that I completed  last night and they were worth every minute of sleep I lost. lol

Yes 24 bottle toppers using my scraps from a mini album I created.

Here are my instructions.  Sure hope it's easy to understand.  I was inspired by several videos and post, but with 24 to make in a few hours I had to make them nice yet simple with just a view steps. 1) The tag was cut at 3 x 11. 2) I scored them at 2 1/2 at one end and 3 1/2 at the other end. 3) I used the corner rounder on all corners of the tag. 4) The front cover was cut with a different pattern 2 3/4 x 3 1/2. The corner rounder was just used on the top corners. 5) I started using the Creative Memories circle punch, but it was so easier to use the Stampin Up punch and I used the paper from the punch to mat the sentiment. 6) The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock in Anna Griffin brown pigment ink. It reads "All My THANKS To You!" 7) The glue gun was used to add the leaf and sentiment on the front as well as the sides of the front to insert the Lemonade.

Hope you had an opportunity to view my mini album I created with The Wild Splendor on  Scraps Of Color Espire.  You can find the inserts as well.  I always hold on to my favorite paper stacks, but this time I wanted to create with the entire stack and can you believe I still have 19 full 12x12 pages and 2 pages of die cuts left?  You just got to LOVE it!

Oh the possibilities! I think I'm going to make book markers for my students with the other paper OR  a few mini albums and reward them for taking initiative on their assignments in class!   If you haven't already purchased your stack put it on your Black Friday list.

From my family to yours ...............
Happy Thanksgiving my fellow bloggers!  I appreciate you stopping by
