A Passion for Papertrey's Black & White Challenge

6:34 PM

Hi there! No card today - I worked on something a little different this time. A friend asked me for advice on cheap but elegant party decoration for her birthday. Huh, cheap but elegant? Nothing easier than that, haha! ;-) The one thing I came up with, was stamped party lights. Here are some pictures of my "prototypes":

I used some simple tea lights with IKEA candle holders (it's from their Galej line and they sell for 25 (Euro) cents per piece.

The candle holders were put inside a stamped (and border punched) sandwich bag. Easy peasy! Here's one with one PTI's gorgeous damask images on:

Wouldn't these look great for Halloween parties, too? Anyhow, since I kept my color combo to basic black & white, I'll enter this for the current A Passion for Papertrey Challenge. There are some a-maz-ing entries, take a look here!

Stamps: PTI Damask Designs, Heidi Swapp Chandelier
Ink: PTI true black
Paper: sandwich paper bags
Other: IKEA Galej tea candle holders, tea candles, Fiskars apron lace punch
