OCC: Papercrafting for a Party

Hi Friends!
Summer is here! The birds are chirping, the sun is (finally) shining in Washington and its the perfect time for parties of all types. This week on Our Creative Corner, we're working on things for the perfect soiree. I've put together a little favor for a housewarming party - a little clear plastic bottle filled with individually wrapped Lifesavers.

I started by wrapping a strip of red Bazzil textured card stock around a clear Making Memories bottle.

 After cutting out a section of a small paper doily, I folded it several times to make it smaller and put it behind the little brown flowery scalloped circle.

 Then I added the die cut house stamped with a sentiment that just fit that small space perfectly. A little brown and white baker's twine and an orangy-pinkish brad top it off.

Do you have any special events coming up this summer that you could papercraft something for? It could be as simple as an invitation, a nice favor or a hostess gift. Stretch yourself a little and think about how you might jump in on this week's challenge and then get to it! To get your creative juices running, take a look at what our OCC designers came up with this week!

One quick note, please, please, please remember that the whole purpose of our blog is to challenge you so please read each challenge carefully to make sure your entry lines up with what we're asking for. It breaks my heart to see entries from people who didn't pay attention to the challenge criteria and have to be removed from playing because of that.
