Hey there! Welcome to group post day two for the February Papertrey release. The anniversary party is drawing to a close and I hope you've had a wonderful time with all of the challenges, prizes, and goodies!
Tonight the team is debuting a new product line by Dawn called Delightful Doilies. There is a stamp set filled with build-a-doily designs, doily dies and a lacey new Edger die. Gorgeous, gorgeous stuff. All of the products will be available for puchase on the Papertrey Ink website on February 15th (you don't have much longer to wait!!).
I decided to put the set to use to create a pretty gift ensemble. I created a set of doily sachets that are super easy to make and use supplies I'm pretty sure you have on hand! It's pretty and feminine...a great inexpensive gift for teachers, friends, co-workers, or even the bride-to-be.
The new Parisian Lace Doily die is simply gorgeous. I cut these doilies out of regular printer paper...they look just like the ones you buy in the store! I bundled three of them together and tied them with some gorgeous new Royal Velvet satin ribbon. Royal Velvet is a deep, rich blue-ish purple. It's one of those colors that could either be very elegant and modern...or pair it with the right thing and it could give a real vintage vibe. I love it! I paired it here with Spring Rain...with all of the white, it's very fresh and feminine!
It's so detailed and pretty!
I put together just a few ho-to photos in case you'd like to make some of your own sachets.
Start by diecutting two doilies for every sachet you want to make. Like I mentioned above, I used just regular printer paper...the lighter weight makes it easier to enclose the cotton balls and it also allows the scent to escape better than heavier paper would. Then just dab some of your favorite perfume or scented oil onto cotton balls. I used three cotton balls per sachet.
If you want to do any stamping on the top doily, do that now. Then, use a liquid glue and make a line of glue all the way around the edge of the second doily. Lay it over top of the first and pinch it together along the outer edge with your finger tips until it is completely adhered to the first, sandwiching the cotton balls in between the two doilies.
