Welcome to the CLASSroom! It's that time of year for beach trips and afternoons by the pool, I guess that's what put me in a nautical mood when I was putting together this party set! The nautical theme is very versatile. This set could be used for a baby shower, toddler's birthday, or a pool party.
I kept a consistent look by using the Savvy Wave Background stamp and Lawn Fawn sentiments on all of my projects.
Let's start with the toy boat invitation. I die cut 2 - 2" circles, cut them to the desired size, and added white eyelets. For the sail, I used a little snip of canvas and some orange striped paper.
One finishing touch I added was to run a coordinating Copic color along the edge of each piece. It just gave it that little something.
Now for the little milk carton party favor. After I die cut the carton, I added the wave background. It was the perfect length for two squares, so I didn't have to worry about matching edges. Note, I also punched a hole with my Crop-A-Dile before I assembled the box.
This die set also includes three circles and a label die. I used the largest and smallest circles to create my life preserver. I used the same orange stripe paper, and then made another ring in white for the details on the ring. As I did with the boat pieces, I ran a Copic marker around the edge of the ring.
Finally, I made a thank you note to send after the party.
This is my favorite cord, it's really soft and malleable, and there aren't any of those "wild hairs" that some twine have. I found it easiest to adhere the charms first. Then I was able to thread and knot the hemp cord where I liked it.
I hope you've enjoyed this projects, thanks for visiting the CLASSroom today!
