CURRENT OBSESSION: PASTEL CIRCLES

August 20, 2015

 

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.  

 

 

And finally the adorable ribbon banner.  It's made with this Martha Stewart punch.  The circles are adhered to jute twine using glue.  So simple, and so much fun!

 

Will you be making pastel circle crafts for your next party or gift? Let's here about it in the comments!
