Make It Market: Party Pops...

The next Make It Market Kit for Papertrey Ink will be released on April 1st and it is entitled "Party Pops".  Betsy has once again outdone herself!  Party Pops is all about interactive birthday cards, tags, favors, gift wrap, decor and anything else you can dream up!  Just wait until you see these dies!  They provide several options for creating different types of interactive cards — pop-ups, lift-the-flap, and SO much more! These could potentially be THE most innovative products that Betsy has designed to date!  She has even invented some clever tools to turn colorful cupcake wrappers into works of art.  If there was ever a kit you didn't want to miss out on, it would be this one! Pop over to Nichole Heady's blog to watch all the videos on how these dies work.

Here are a few samples I created with the kit. Up first, I used the scalloped die as my card base with Aqua Mist cardstock. The white piece is cut from the liner die. Then instead of using the liner die on the INSIDE of the card like it was meant to be used, I used it on the outside of my card, so I could cut out the balloons from it and pop them up. I wanted to do a bit of colorful stamping on the front with the stamps in the kit. All of the pretty colors on the front of this card are stamped except the teal border on the bottom - cut from one of the patterned papers in the kit.

The balloons are cut with a die that doesn't cut the bottom, so you can pop them up and they are still intact on your card. The balloons were die cut out of the white piece before folding it in half and sliding it over the top of the card base. The banner is cut with Sweet Blush cardstock and stamped with Pure Poppy ink, then popped up with dimensional adhesive.

Next, I wanted to point out that there are some beautiful pre-made patterned papers in the kit! I've used them here as table decor. By using the dies, you can cut out portions of the pre-made papers and pop them up for decor for your birthday table! (Or fold on the dotted line and add them to the inside of a card.)

You can use the little cupcake holders from the kit as treat holders to place around the table like I did here. And notice the little die cut confetti? SO, so cute!

Here is one more card made with the scalloped die, and I used the cupcake die that doesn't cut at the top to partially cut out the cupcake to reveal a message underneath. "Lift here" is stamped in black on the flap.

The scalloped front was cut from white cardstock and added to a white background. I wanted the cupcake to be the focal point. Added a strip of paper to the top from the kit. (Twine is from my stash.) I stamped the birthday sentiment and cupcake.

When you life the flap on the front of the card, underneath the cupcake top is another celebrate stamp that I stamped on another piece of paper and added it underneath before adhering to the card front... "eat cake and celebrate".

Last I made just a simple, SUPER quick flower banner with the cupcake liners! There's a die that cuts the leaf shapes you see here behind the flowers. You fold the cupcake liners in half and place the die on top, run it through your cutting machine, and voila! You have an easy and quick floral banner for a party that's full of color!
The cupcake liners were layered on top of each other for more color. (I turned them inside out, because the colorful part is always on the outside of the liner.) In between the layers is a punched circle from white cardstock. That way the liners hold their true colors and don't blend in with the liners behind them.
Literally, this took minutes to make. You could hang little sayings or banners in between the flowers to personalize it for a party.

There is a limited number of these exclusive kits, so be sure to get yours on Wednesday! The "Party Pops" kit will be for sale beginning April 1st at 10pm EST only at Papertrey Ink. Read all the details for supplies included in the kit and cost at Nichole Heady's blog or contact customer service with any questions.

Well, I hope you can see how colorful and fun this kit is! This is just the tip of the iceberg! Stop over to the other Make It Market gals to see more: Nichole, BetsyMelissaHeather and our newest team member, Lea Lawson! Sending a big welcome to Lea!
