CURRENT OBSESSION: PASTEL CIRCLES


Pastel colours are so fun. When I look at them, I suddenly feel 10 years younger. Although we often associate soft colours with babies, pastels never grow old and look good on everyone.

Including crafts! I got the idea to create a few things using pastel card stock - tags, a card, and ribbon - but all have a second important element in common - the circle!

Let's talk about the tags first. I LOVE the juxtaposition of the pastels on Kraft paper. It really makes the circles pop. To create a tag, punch out 15 circles in four pastel colours using the Recollections Petite Circle Punch. Then, glue them using a glue stick in a consecutive pattern, starting at the bottom left corner and working left to right to the top. The tags cost me $1 for 10 at Creative Bag. Feed jute twine through them and use on your next gift!

Pastel circles are also a cute way to dress up a card. I did only two layers here because the card is really small. I followed the same pattern to glue them on. Then I adhered the stickers. Glitter stickers can be found at just about any craft store.
