Maui Memories

This project was one of the most fun I've ever made! It's entirely made of Bo Bunny product... and everything on it was handmade. The tin is a Peppermint Bark container from Christmas (don't you love recycling old items?!).

I sketched the palm trees and then just cut them out. They are lifted with 3D adhesive tape (although it's hard to tell in the photo). The waves are glittered lightly. For the beach ball, pail and shovel, I used patterns from Scapbooks Etc. and paper pieced them. I cut the starfish by hand. Outlining (or inking) the paper pieced items really gives them a "finished" look.

The titles were cut with my Wishblade - what a wonderful tool!

Here is a side view of the tin.
