Hey y'all! I hope you are having a fabulous day! I have a quick little project to share with you today. We at Berry Bleu are debuting our first design team projects for the month of December. If you are not familiar with Berry Bleu, you can check it out by going HERE. The owner of Berry Bleu, Marivic, makes the most gorgeous tags! Her work is really phenomenal!
Of course for the month of December, Marivic sent us some festive holiday tags to work with. For my first project, I wanted to make a little something for my scrapbooking desk. I decorate the rest of my home and want the holiday cheer to be displayed in my crafting area as well. So what I did was take an old 'Crystal Light' drink mix container and alter it up. I actually have a cute story behind this container. My husband drinks Crystal Light and one day this past summer he was getting the last packet out of the container while I was working at my desk. He walked over and said 'Look honey, you could so alter this.' LOL! So I put it back and sure enough, it provided a wonderful opportunity to recycle and jazz up! Gotta love him! Due to the odd shape of the container, I was unable to wrap patterned paper around it like I had originally planned. So I went digging in my scrapbook supplies and found some leftover Artisan Tape from Pink Paislee and used it to add a pattern to my container. I then let Marivic's tag stand front and center on my project. I didn't add much more besides a flower and some trim. I now have this sitting on my desk for a few of my crafty tools.
