It's a Celebration

Planning a celebration anytime soon? Whether you have a birthday coming up or graduation party to plan, Richard Garay's Celebrations line is perfect for creating decor pieces, pretty presents, cards and so much more! 

Today I have two projects to share with you using this festive collection. First up is this little gift box that can also double as a party decoration with it's cute and colorful banner. 


The box was made with pattern paper from the Celebrations Prints pack and topped with a handmade bow.


The bow was simple to make by cutting three Fringed Garland pieces using different colors of card stock. Once I had my pieces cut, I  stacked them together, rolled them around a pencil and tied them in the center with Celebrations Linen Thread. 


You can stop with the box and bow or you can take it a step further and create a little banner to hang around the bow. All the dies used to make this banner are included in the Celebrations line and listed below. 


My next project is a matching card using the Celebrate die as a focal point.


The die cut was added to the card base using foam squares to give it dimension. 


To create the circles under the main die cut, I cut them first, then ran them through the die cutter again with the Celebrations die as shown in the photo below.


Once you've cut these circles you can adhere the negative pieces to your card with glue. It's just like putting together a jigsaw puzzle.


This card traveled to California for my father-in-law's birthday. I hope he enjoys it and I hope I've given you a couple fun examples of how to use the Celebrations line.

So love the "papel picado"-like die and how you incorporated the balloon elements. The fringe die makes some awesome gift toppers and I can't wait to order one! Love your projects!!!
