No seriously, I haven't been able to get that song out of my head for a week now, Lily (my 2yr old) is even running around singing it... who's up for midnight margaritas with me?
I decided to make a cute little gift box to go with my hula girl card, which I felt just had to included a 3d palm tree on top and some partying coconut crabs (side note, if you don't know what a coconut crab is do not google it.. trust me on this, they aren't as cute as my little guys here!)
We're featuring Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine this month (which means it's on sale, go buy some already!) but I couldn't stop there... I also used Chocolate Truffle (who's thinking about coconuts & chocolate now? I know I am LOL) on the coconuts & box lid, Twisted Lime on the banner, and some Blue Berry on the box base. I love how all the colors work together so well for my project!
The palm tree base is actually from a template I found online to make a carrot box, the top is a shape from the Silhouette store as are the crabs. A touch of Echo Park for the fish on the bottom (with a bit of glitter pen added of course).
Lastly, since the song was totally stuck in my head I had to use my new button machine to make a cute little 1" button embellishment too (more on that soon, I'm loving this machine)!
Remember that you have until the 31st to link up your beach themed project for the Trendy Twine Aug. Challenge (details HERE).
Until next time...
