May Arts Lawn Fawn Blog Hop



It's time for another May Arts/Lawn Fawn Blog Hop!  The May Arts Ribbon and Lawn Fawn Design Teams have joined forces to bring you a week of stamp and ribbon inspiration.

I love gift packaging especially when it's in the Thrifty Gifting category.  I found a entire package of 12 orange and 12 yellow gift bags at a home decor shop for $1 each.  That's $2 for 24 gift bags!

I used a bright orange bag as the starting point for this sweet thank you gift bag and card tag set.  I covered the front of my bag with a colorful pattern from Lawn Fawn's Hello Sunshine 6 x 6 paper pack.  I love the bright happy colors!

Next, I covered a library pocket with 2 more selections from the Hello Sunshine pack.  I cut a piece of cardstock to fit the pocket, then stamped images from Lawn Fawn's Summertime Charm set in fun Tsukineko Neon Pigment inks.


I used May Arts Elastic Plaid Ruffle, and sparkly 4MM String Beads on the pocket.  A hole punched in the top got some May Arts Sheer Ombre Watermelon ribbon that I heated with my heat gun to give some crinkly texture.

A bit of bright orange and pink tissue paper finishes the color theme...brightly!

That's it!  Quick, easy gift packaging for pennies thanks to May Arts Ribbon and Lawn Fawn!  Be sure to scroll down for the rest of the hop list.  You've got the whole week to hop, be inspired and win!

There is an awesome giveaway, of course!  There are 3 sets of prize packs of a roll of ribbon and a stamp set each.  That's 3 winners total.  You have to post on both the May Arts blog and Lawn Fawn sites to win.


Here's the list for the week in case you miss one along the way.
