Practical Scrappers Tiny Things

This week at Practical Scrappers we were working with Tiny Things. I chose one of my favorites, CTMH's Wooden Trinkets, stampable laser cut wooden shapes. I decided to make a card set, inspired by the Moxie Fab Card Set Challenge, using my Dream Pop papers, lots of Washi tape, and this adorable Puns of Praise stamp set that has been sitting unused on my table top. That situation was screaming to be rectified!
Here's a closer look at the four cards in the set. I kept the design simple and sweet with a Dream Pop banner for a burst of color and washi tape accents. A sprinkling of Bitty Sparkles finished off each card.
I cut out each Puns of Praise image, detailing the imaged with only a Grey Flannel marker and popping them up with 3-D Foam tape. I finished each images with a coordinating Wooden Trinket that I colored with a black Sharpie pen and edged with Silver Glitter Glitz. I just love the punny little sayings!
I cut my card set bag out using the Cricut Artiste Cartridge using the 3-D object bag on page 33 at 4 inches. The sides fold in to make a little pouch inside to hold my 3x3 cards nice and snug - no adhesive required! I put four cards in this time, but I've done up to 12 if they aren't too chunky. I cut a practice bag in some scrap B&T, then used that outline to figure out how to line up my Dream Pop notebook paper so that the swirls would be on the front of my bag.
Here's a close up of the floral cluster on the front. I cut some flowers in graduated sizes from 2 inches down to 1/2" (Cricut Artiste), then manipulated the paper fibers to bend and form the petals of the flowers. This is the clear polka dot embossed CS from the Dream Pop Pack, and it worked great with the flower formation. I was a little worried I'd ruin the cute embossed polkadots, but they still look shiny and fab! To my biggest paper flower I added one of the beautiful metal flowers I won in the Practical Scrappers Card Contest this year (Thanks, Christine!). And I topped that with one of the largest wooden trinkets and a Pewter Sparkle badge. A little washi and a Cricut sentiment finished off my cute purse.

Hope you liked my little gift card set! You can find more Tiny Things inspirations over at Practical Scrappers, and more amazing gift card projects over at Moxie Fab World
