Design Team Monday with Anna

Good Morning friends! We really enjoyed seeing so many of you at CKC in New Hampshire! 

We're back with some beautiful inspiration from Anna to kick off the week. 

She's sharing a great way to give some sweet treats and shares a beautiful card to go along with them!

I love Anna's shabby chic style and the colors she chose here are so lovely.

This gift set features our ice cream cone brads. This card is simply sweet if you ask me.

Love how she used some crackle paint here to have this distressed look.

Here's a view inside of her treat bags that are cardstock that is scored to hold these little bags of chocolate.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Wednesday Design Team Inspiration featuring Jingle

Today Jingle has used some of our newest brads to top some really cute gift bags. With summer coming soon there will be lots of birthday and pool parties and I love book marking fun ideas for treats and decor.

These are just clear bags filled with jelly beans and topped with cardstock and some fun brads. Cut your cardstock at 6x3 and fold. Use hot glue or double sided tape to adhere and decorate.

 Easy Peasy I tell ya!

Jingle used a bit of die cut cork and Washi tape to make these fun! 

Brads used: Bee brads, Mini butterflies and Retro Owls. You can see all our latest brads here on the website.

Make sure you share your ideas for treat bags and Eyelet Outlet brads on our Facebook page.

A fun Party idea from Nicole

Hello there! Hope you all had a Happy Easter weekend. It's Spring Break and what a great time to share some fun party gift bags and cupcake topper ideas with you from designer Nicole.

Girly Girl party favors 

Spring is in the air when you add these love bug brads to your party favors!

 Use our medium button brads to make some girly girl cupcake toppers complete with tutu's!

Here's how Nicole made the leotards in case you'd like to create these fun favors!

First I drew a template for the leotard part and cut it out.  Then I folded my pink polkadot cardstock in half and used the template as a stencil to draw 2 leotards... then I cut them out to get 4 leotards.  I sandwiched a toothpick between two the leotards (for cupcake picks only for the treatbags I just glued the two pattern paper leotards together).  Then I inked the edges.  Then for the tutu I cut 3 strips of pink tulle 3/4 in wide by 8 in long.  The I laid the strips one on top of the other and sewed a basic stitch across the top and pulled the string to get it to gather and then tied it off and trimed and uneven portions.  For the smaller tutus I used 2 strips 1/2 in wide and 5-6 in long. and continued the same as above.  I then put glue at the top of the tutu underneath the stitches and then covered both the glue and stitches with a white bow and ladybug/button brad.  Fun and easy!

Thanks for stopping by the Eyelet Outlet blog today. Be sure and check out our Upcoming Events calendar located at the top right of the blog to see if we're coming to your town.

Have a great day!
