Today I am going to do a mini tutorial using a few of the items from the April planner kit.
The materials I used are:
-- The information card
-- Plain black and yellow cardstock
-- Star sequins
-- Star stickers
-- Chalk ink
-- Acetate or piece of plastic
As well as basic supplies like glue, adhesive foam dots and string.
The first thing I did was doodle out what I wanted on a piece of paper and cut the items that I wanted on my Silhouette. The base of the card is matte black and galaxy print from the information card. I also printed out "You're out of this world" to add to the tag. You can leave it blank, add a name or another quote.
Next I glued my "planet" (the black circle) to my acetate and put some very small adhesive foam dots around the outside. This helps raise the planet from the card so that the sequins inside will shake. (FUN FACT: I used 34 dots!)
Once that is done, it is time to figure out what you want to shake in the card. I used a variety of the stars in the planner kit, some fuchsia sequins, gold and silver sequins and iridescent stars. I organized them into a small section of the card to make sure they'd fit. I could have fit more.
I added the yellow right around and tucked them into the back to make it look more like a planet. I also added little craters to it.
Lastly I inked the side of my quote and added some of the star stickers for embellishment. I punched a hole in the top, attached from string and added it to my gift!
