Newton's Nook Designs Toucan Party Set - Naki Rager


For my little treat, I created this little milk carton with fun patterned paper and dressed it up with layers of die cuts using the NND products today ;-) I wanted to show you that you don't need a Valentine's Day stamp set to create a little Valentine treat.

This adorable toucan is from the Toucan Party Set, I watercolored one of the toucan images with fun, tropical colors. I also stamped and watercolored the sweet little tropical flower and one leaf and tucked them behind my sweet toucan after die cutting them using the Toucan Party Die Set. My sweet toucan is sitting on 2 big leaves that were die cut from gold vellum using the Hibiscus Die Set.

To create all the fun layers, I die cut the banner using the Frames & Flags Die Set and heat embossed the cute sentiment from the Toucan Party Stamp Set, die cut the stitched heart using the Darling Hearts Die Set, and the little tag was die cut using the Tags Times Two Die Set. The little XOXO stamp is from the new My Type Set, I simply stamped it with black ink on white cardstock and trimmed it down. I used 2 different, pretty busy patterns but because I coordinated the colors in every piece, the patterns are not fighting against each other.

Now you didn't think I just decorated this little milk carton and was done, did you!?
Before you get to enjoy some Dove chocolate (my favorite, YUM 💗), you get to pull out these little letters that were sewn together ;-)

This super fun, pull-out-sentiment was die cut using the Essential Alphabet Die Set, and the hearts were die cut using the Darling Hearts Die Set. I originally sewed them without any backing but it wasn't easy, and it turned out not so pretty 😣 so I trimmed off about 1/4" of printer paper and sewed the letters onto it, and it worked much better!

For the finishing touch, I added a few flower sequins with seed beads inside of them, cute, right!?
