Echo Park Paper: Cruisin’ for a Summer Treat

I am always so inspired by the colors and icons of Echo Park Paper collections. When I saw the Summer Dreams collection for the first time, I just knew I had to make something that would incorporate all of the darling popsicles, ice cream cones, and snow cones. So an ice cream truck gift box it was!

I used my Sihouette Cameo machine to cut out the ice cream truck cut file by SVGCuts.com. I used the Solid Pink paper for the base, and then cut the decorative panels from the Say Cheese, Sweet As Summer, and Summer Vacation papers. I used the Solid Navy/Yellow paper for the wheels and trim pieces.

The window pieces were cut from vellum and then embossed with the Sunny Dots Embossing Folder for a bit of texture.
I added the speech bubble stickers to the front window, so that it appears like the people inside the ice cream truck are having a fun little conversation.

The back of the truck opens up so that you can place a fun treat inside for the recipient. I think this would be a really fun way to wish your child’s teacher (or anyone else) a Happy Summer Break!

The most fun part of projects like this, for me at least, is the embellishing! I added the chipboard “FUN” letters to the awning along with some shiny decorative brads and enamel dots.

It looks like you can walk right up to that window and order one of those delicious ice cream treats, doesn’t it?! The flamingo is there to greet you and take your order.

The other side of the box doesn’t get left out … I decorated it with the reader board sticker, and more chipboard pieces, stickers, brads, and enamel dots. I even added the small chipboard discs (decorative brads) and enamel dots to the wheels. You can never how too much pattern and texture on a fun project like this!
I even created a couple of pinwheels to go with it using the darling Sunny Pinwheel Die Set and the 6×6 papers and decorative brads.

Does this project get you excited for summer?! I am definitely ready to don my flip flops and grab a yummy, frozen treat!

Carta Bella Paper: Toy Box Backpack Activity Set

Keep your little one entertained with this fun activity set! I created a paper backpack with the Carta Bella Toy Box Collection filled with notepads and crayons that I think would make the perfect gift for a toddler. There is even enough room in the backpack to add a snack!

I cut the base of the backpack from the Magic Toy Room paper with it’s darling blue plaid pattern. On the flap I added a decorative panel with the toy guns, and then created a tag to hang on the handle.

The tag was created with the Rounded Tag Die Set. I added the chipboard plane, and a word sticker from the Elements Sticker Sheet. Sparkly, gem decorative brads hold the handle in place.

The front of the backpack has a yellow polka dot pocket that is decorated with all kinds of fun toys from the Chipboard and Element Sticker sheets.

Echo Park Paper: Foil Bunny Box

Are you looking for something simple and sweet for your Easter Dinner table? Today I’m sharing a fun Easter project on the Echo Park Paper Blog using the Dots & Stripes Gold Stripes collection.

I love the soft colors of these papers and knew they would be perfect for creating favor boxes for Easter. The bunny shape of this cut file has the “wow-factor,” but is easy to put together. I love projects like that!

I cut the bunny box from the Tan, Pink, and Mint Striped papers using my electronic cutting machine. The inside of the ears were cut from the solid side of the Lt. Pink Gold Foil Stripe paper and then embossed with the Sunny Dots Embossing Folder.

Next, I pulled out various metal die sets for the fun part … decorating the ears! I used the solid sides of the paper to cut all of the shapes.
First, I added a die cut bow using the Mini 3D Bow metal die set.

To the center of the bow, I created a sweet little flower using the Flower #3 Die Set. Then, I added a monogrammed tag using the Lindsay Uppercase Alphabet and Rounded Tag Die Sets.

Echo Park Paper: Disney Countdown

The hardest part about planning a magical vacation is the waiting! I thought it would be fun to create a countdown calendar to help the final days move along.

While searching on Pinterest for inspiration, I came across this fun idea by Mamas Like Me, but thought I would punch it up a bit by adding a topper to it and using the adorable Echo Park Magic & Wonder collection.

Begin by punching several 1.75″ circles from Ebony Flack Felt Designer Cardstock. Use a scoring board to score a line on one side of the circle.

Next cut Ebony Black Felt Designer Cardstock, Jumbo Dots Paper (red stars), and Wonder Stripes Paper (Yellow Stars) into 1.5″ x 8″ strips. These will be used to create the Mickey links. Cut the Confetti Dots Paper into 7/8″ x 8″ strips to connect the Mickey links together. You will also need one to connect the links to the topper.

The topper was created with a 4.5″ square piece of the Ebony Black Felt Designer Cardstock. I cut the 4×4 card from the Multi Journaling Cards Paper. I reverse rounded the corners and then adhered it to the cardstock base.
I placed eyelets in the top two corners and added a ribbon for hanging. Next, I used several Element Stickers with foam square adhesive for decoration.
