Hello and welcome to the second Papertrey Ink group post! All of the products you are seeing today will be available at the Papertrey Ink online store at 10:00pm EST on January 15th.
Oh we have some beautiful things in store for you today! We are introducing Betsy's final Petite Places: Home & Garden. It is so cute and I had so much fun playing with it! I'm sad that this is the last in the Petite Places line, but I love everything Betsy makes, so I'm sure I will love what all she has in store for 2016!
For my first project I created this cute little spring scene in a tuna can! Can you believe it? I've had this in the back of my mind for some time and of course I picked the one time I was really short on time to do it! I made this up and figured it out as I went along. I kept telling my daughter the whole time "if this doesn't work, I won't have time to do anything else". Thank goodness it did indeed work out like I planned!
I covered the inside and the outside of the can with Aqua Mist card stock and then had to build the little platform for the house to sit on. It was pretty easy. I just cut a piece of card stock about 1 1/4 inches wide and folded the ends over. I then glued that to the inside of the can. I cut out a circle and stamped the leafy pattern on it. I cut about 1/3 of the circle off and that is what I glued over the piece inside. I then had a place to sit my house. In the very back I glued one of the background scenes from the Petite Places Patterned Paper Collection cut from a circle. I stamped the trees from the new Petite Places: Home & Garden set, cut them out and adhered them to the background with foam tape. I then glued my little house and fence in there.
Here's a front view. I used the Shaker Shapes circle dies to go around it and cover up the rim. I glued several of them together so it would be nice and sturdy and wouldn't bend. I then glued the leaves and flowers onto the front. I glued some white ribbon around the whole thing and tied a bow at the top.
