Sweet Treats Hop with Tombow and Avery Elle February 14, 2014

“Rose are Red. Violets are blue. Sugar is sweet and this hop is too! We hope you are ready for some Lovely Ideas and Great Prizes this week from Tombow and Avery Elle. This Sweet Treats Hop is the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!! If you’re here from Maska Vanacker’s Blog, then you’re in the right place,  if not then you may want to start at the beginning.
Comment on all the Designers’ projects for your chance to win prizes you are guaranteed to fall in love with! One lucky winner will get BOTH a $50 Gift certificate from Avery Elle and $50 worth of Tombow Adhesive! IMG_3383I was inspired by Avery Elle’s Stamps and decided to create this cute container to hold those yummy French Macarons. IMG_3388 IMG_3387Start by gathering your materials. From Avery Elle we have the Bonjour Clear Stamp Set, and the matching Bonjour Die. I also used some pink butcher twine and mini pompom trim. From Tombow I used Two Pink Dual Brush Pens, Foam Tabs, Power Tabs, Mono Multi Liquid Glue and the new Xtreme Adhesive. IMG_3386Here are the sizes of paper to make a container that fits 4 macarons perfectly! One 6.5″ x 4″ for the container (to make a container to fit more macarons, add 1″ for each additional cookie!) Two 1.5″ x 7″ (score in half and cut slits) and four 2″ circles for the bottom and lid pieces. A rosette cut from coordinating decorative paper is also used to decorate the lid. IMG_3389Using Avery Elle’s Bonjour Set, stamp, color the motifs using the Dual Brush Pens, and then cut out using the Bonjour Die. IMG_3390Use the Xtreme Adhesive to form the cylinder and the two ends. Xtreme is super strong and holds heavier paper together beautifully! With the Xtreme, make sure to swipe to the side  before lifting for perfect cuts! The rosette was created using a rosette die, Mono Multi Liquid Glue and two Power Tabs. I also used the Multi Glue to add glitter around the edge of the rosette.IMG_3385To add the pompom trim, apply the Mono Multi Liquid Glue, let it dry clear and sticky, and then add the trim for a super hold with no mess! Use Power Tabs and Foam Tabs to add your embellishments and finish your container! bloghop_averyelleTo be eligible to win, please comment on each of the designers projects  and don’t forget to “Like” the Avery Elle Facebook Page and “Like” the Tombow Facebook Page.
