Hi everyone! Happy Thursday!
I’ve got a really exciting post to share with you today!
You all know just how *much* I love sequins, and how Neat & Tangled’s sequins seem to make it onto pretty much every card I can! So when I was asked by Danielle to be a part of her special Sequin Series I pretty much hyperventilated then said yes immediately!! So, if you’ve found your way here from the Neat & Tangled blog or FB Page – welcome, it’s so good to see you!! I ♥ Neat & Tangled sequins *so* much and am so honoured to be a part of this!!
So for my contribution I decided to combine a few different colours of Neat & Tangled sequins with a simple household/hardware item – copper wire! And the results are truly spectacular:
Isn’t this gift set just the coolest thing ever?!
Creating this effect is super-easy. All I did was cut some lengths of wire and thread through the sequins individually, wrapping and threading the wire through repeatedly to keep each sequin in place. Simple!
Once I had a long enough length I wrapped it around a simple white gift box I had made by die cutting a box from a piece of Stamper’s Select White cardstock using the Party Favours 7 die. Using the wired sequins makes such a great alternative to ribbon or other embellishments!!
And as the wire is very bendable I didn’t need to use any adhesive to secure it in place – making this simple box and embellishment reusable and very stylish too!!
I didn’t stop with just the box. I decided to use a shorter length of wired sequins and wrap them about a gift tag die cut using the Tremendous Tags die to accompany the box. As the wired sequins steal the show there’s no need for any fancy decorating of the box or the tag!
And no gift set is complete without a cute little card to accompany it! I created this teeny (2.5″ x 2.5″) little card in a very simple style, again with my wired sequins carrying the theme, and a simple sentiment from Irresistibly Ikat, stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with WOW! Metallic Brass embossing powder. I think that the entire set together make for such a high-end, boutique look!
I do hope you’ll be tuning into the Neat & Tangled blog for the final day of this series tomorrow, and that you’ve been left inspired by all the different ways you can use ‘The New Rhinestone’!! I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way though. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
