Welcome to day #1 of a 3 day celebration of all things Fiskars and SRM Stickers! We have teamed together to make some amazing projects. Over the next 3 days, 3 Fiskars designers will be featured on the SRM Blog and 3 SRM designers will be featured on the Fiskars Blog. FUN! And both blogs will be doing a giveaway. Details at the end of this post.
Today we are featuring Emma Jeffrey. Emma is currently on the Fiskars Design Team and Lead Fiskateer for the Fiskars' online crafting community. She loves color and design and has a passion for creating. Whether she's using fabric, paper, baker's twine, buttons or old socks, Emma is, in her own words, "happy diving into projects with more enthusiasm than talent, more bravado than skill and more good luck than anything else".
For her first project, Emma created a Thank You teacher gift card holder. The end of the school year is quickly approaching and she wanted to find a way to thank her children’s teachers. Emma likes to give gift cards because she knows that they will be put to good use, so she designed this sweet gift card tag and put it into a pretty SRM glassine bag ‘envelope’.
Here's what Emma says about her project:
What bold and beautiful colors Emma chose for her project. Love the touch of Marigold Twinery twine on the card and on the outside glassine envelope!
The tag inside holds a gift card with a perfect tag line for a teacher. After cutting the cardstock to size, Emma used her Fiskars Fingertip Detail Knife to cut slots for each of the four corners of the gift card to easily slip into. She punched a small hole at the top of the cardstock and reinforced it with an extra cardstock punched circle before threading some twine through. For this gift card project Emma used the following Fiskars tools: Lacy Doubles Border Punch, Circle Pop Up Punch and Circle Lever Punch.
For her second project Emma turned to SRM's very popular TUBES. Emma's son is turning 9 in a couple of months and she doesn't think that he will every outgrow his Legos! Emma says: "If you're also planning a fun-filled Lego party for a special someone, then why not use SRM's Standard 7" TUBES to create the perfect take-home treat for any Lego-lover!"
Using a Fiskars tag punch, Emma created yellow card stock gift tags. She trimmed the tags down to 1 1/2" and rounded the corners with her corner squeeze punch.
Emma then layered the tags with a full-size red tag underneath giving her just enough room to sticker a clear "thank you so much" sentiment from SRM's Stickers by the Dozen Thank You design. She embellished the tags, creating
little happy faces, tied the tag to the TUBE with some Peapod Twinery twine and decorated the caps with SRM's Sticker Stitches. Emma filled the tubes with a selection of Lego blocks in primary colors. The bold colors of the tags really coordinate with Lego blocks and fit in nicely with the Lego theme!
She then topped the caps with a little Lego man. You can adhere him with a removable glue dot so that he's ready to play when needed. How fun is that?
And here's what Emma has to say about SRM Stickers:
"I absolutely love the wide variety of SRM stickers that are available, but I am especially taken with the Tiny Tubes and the mini glassine bags. Not only do they inspire so many different uses and projects, small is ALWAYS cool!"
Thank you Emma for such fun and fabulous projects! We love them! Be sure to hop on over to the Fiskars Blog to see what SRM Design Team member Tessa Buys is doing with Fiskars and SRM Stickers!
