Envelope Maker Party Popper Weekend Project

I actually accidentally ran across this fun Party Popper while surfing for the Santa card I made yesterday.  I thought I would give this a whirl.  I did like to play with the party popper die that Stampin' Up! use to sell but this is a great replacement.  I get to use the envelope punch.  I want to wear that thing out before it retires!!! LOL

I used Soft Sky paper on mine and I used the snowflake paper from the "Winter Frost" paper stack.  And I did layer that decorative paper on top of a piece of Basic Gray card stock.  I had cut the card stock 1-7/8" x 1-3/8" and I cut the decorative paper 1/8" less on two sides.  I added some pearls all around the piece and I called it done!  My plan was to put a die cut snowflake on it but I just went with the pearls instead.  

You can find the directions for this fun party popper here at LibbyStamps.   There is a video and written instructions.  I much prefer the written instructions.  I find that the videos tend to waste more time.  I don't care much for watching people cut or score or even embellish.  Just show me the finished product, the instructions with measurements and let me play!  I can cut and score and embellish without having to see that being done!  Just the basics is all I really need in a video.  So when I see that the designer has written instructions too I tend to go there instead!  Anyway, have fun making these!

Thank you for visiting today,
