It’s the last Friday of the month, so that means it’s time for the InStyle Stamps Blog Hop. This month’s theme is “Contain Yourself”. We were tasked with making or altering some kind of container … how fun, right? My project is a combination of Melissa’s Method Monday challenge from last week and a cute little purse project that my sister Joy made (check out her new blog, here).
When I make a 3D type project like this, I decide what goodies I’m going to put inside before I choose the image, color scheme and embellishments. I found some adorable wine themed items in the $1 bins at Michael’s recently and decided Marti would be the perfect image for this challenge. I based the size of my bag on the items that I was putting in it. That’s the cool thing about making your own packaging, you know everything is going to fit perfectly. I love how this project turned out. I think it will be a great little gift set for any wine lover or as favors for a wine tasting, that sort of thing.
Be sure to check out the blogs of all the rest of the Design Team (links are on my sidebar to the right). And then go to the ISS blog to vote for your favorite project. The designer of the project with the most votes will win a prize. And of course there will be prizes for all you blog hoppers out there in blog land. Note that in addition to voting, you will need to leave a comment on the blog post with the poll on it in order to be entered to win the grand prize.
Other important info about today’s blog hop:
It will run from 12pm EST to 11pm EST on the ISS forum (see link above).
There will be mini contests with prizes throughout the day on the blog hop thread on the forum.
The contest will remain open until 11:59pm EST on Saturday, April 25th, and the winners will be announced on Sunday, April 26th.
Here's a picture of just the bag. The bag closes by use of a Velcro Square. Marti is popped up and only adhered on the flap layer.
