Sizzix Party Decor Ideas

Hello Everyone!

Summer is in full swing and backyard BBQ's and bashes are our thing this month over at
Eileen Hull's place!  For the month of July the Inspiration Team will be sharing their creative
 ideas for Sizzix Party Decor.  You will find ideas for storage, centre pieces and much more,
that you can create with your favourite Sizzix dies!  Let's get this Sizzix party started!

Having said that, here in the UK, parties are likely to be indoors due to our constant
rain (well here in the north at any rate) so I have created a cutlery holder to make
my party table look a little prettier...

I want to show you how versatile Eileen's dies can be!
I used Eileen's Sizzix Box with Scallop Flap (656546) die for the case and Eileen's  
Sizzix Heart & Soul Flower die (661108) to decorate the holder.
I used Eileen's beautiful Honeycomb Embossing Folder (Sizzix 661447) to create
a pattern on my mat board die cut.
I painted the die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Scattered Straw.

To create some interest, I dry brushed the folder with some Tim Holtz Distress Paint
 in Vintage Photo.
After die cutting the flower, I painted the pieces with Distress Paint in Squeezed
Lemonade and then spritzed them with Abandoned Coral Distress Spray Stain.  This
gives a lovely mottled look to the petals.
I coloured some vintage seam binding with Ground Espresso Distress Stain.

A close up of the flower, which I finished off with a large fabric brad, also coloured
with Ground Espresso Distress Stain.

I hope that has given you a quick and easy idea to decorate your party table.  You can
see some more inspiration over at Eileen's blog HERE where my lovely team mates
Tracy Evans and Pam Bray are sharing some ideas too.

As always, thanks so much for looking, I really appreciate your visit!  Hope to
see you again soon.

Hugs, Anne xx
