When I first got the new Cotton Paper I wasn’t sure what to do with it. It seems similar to tissue paper, but it’s slicker and stronger. It comes in 4 colors: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush, and Watermelon Wonder.
While at a recent weekend retreat, Cindy Schuster (of Nutmeg Creations and the Stampin’ Up Artisan Design Team,) Lana Alsobrook, and I put our heads together to figure out just what we could use it for. Here’s what we came up with.
Using the Mini Treat Bag Framelits Dies, cut the bag from a sheet of Watermelon Wonder Cotton Paper. Stamp flowers in black Staz On ink on the shinier side of the paper. Also stamp the smaller flowers on a 1″ x 8-1/2″ strip of Whisper White card stock. Assemble the bag, then adhere the white strip around the top, overlapping in the back.
For the tag, stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink on Basic Black card stock, heat emboss in white, then cut with the Deco Labels Framelits Dies. Punch a hole in the top with the 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch, then tie it onto the bag with Basic Black Bakers Twine.
Punch a flower from Watermelon Wonder card stock using the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. Put a Whisper White Candy Dot in the center, then adhere the flower to the tag.
I happened to have a piece of white tissue paper, so I cut along one side with the Fringe Scissors, then tucked it into the bag with the fringe hanging out.
I think our group effort turned out well, don’t you?
