My Favorite Things

I just love the way all the new InColors look together. It kinda reminds me of a rainbow. So here I took stamp set case and made it into a container to put just a few of my favorite things! Yes, the song from the Sound of Music is running through my head as I type up this post.

Here are the ingredients to make the project:
Stamp Sets:
Favorite Things, I Heart Lists, Flight of the Butterfly
Card Stock: Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay
Ink: In Color 2009 Stampin’ Write Markers, Bermuda Bay Classic Stamp Pad
Accessories: Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon, 5/16” Jumbo Brads, On Board Long Board, Stampin’ Dimensionals,
Tools: Butterfly Punch, 1 3/8” Circle Punch, Circle Scissor Plus, Crafter’s Tool Kit, 3/16” Corner Rounder, Crop-a-dile

Special touches on the project: I started with make the largest circle in Bermuda Bay and then I went a 1/4" smaller to make the next circle. I just layered the smaller circles on top of the large circle. When I was done I just cut the circle down the middle. The center came the circle punch. I then layered all of them on top of the white circle in the same size as the Bermuda Bay. I ended up putting a strip of On Board Long Board the length of the circle and width of the polka dot grosgrain ribbon. The 6 layers of rainbows was a little too think just to lay a ribbon on top of the white circle and not have it look funny. I punched two holes on top of the stamp case and threaded the ribbon through and tied a knot on top.
