Some close ups:
I didn't want to cover all my hard work...so I placed the photo stack below my stitched stars. I also used the rubber Pink Fresh charm from an older kit.
I love the way my shaker boxes looks on the page.
I made the tag with a Project Life card and then layered a lot of Ephemera from the June kit's Project life ephemera pack. I added one of the Paige Evans wood veneers between the layers and added the puffy "It was Epic!" sticker from the June kit on the top. I love how well the kits coordinate.
You can see that I used many layers behind my photo.
The flair is also a Hip Kit Exclusive.
I first cut the stars with my Silhouette Cameo and then pierced my holes relatively close together.
Pretty variegated thread and stitched in back stitch.
You can see I backed my paper with vellum. I always secure the end of my thread with old washi tape.
Then start stitching.
That is how back stitch works.
You can see the back is no way as neat as the front.
I then used some QuicKutz nesting stars to cut stars into a piece of foam and trimmed it to a bit larger than my stars and stuck it down.
Now the fun stuff...adding the sequins to each star.
Stars cut with the Silhouette Cameo in a larger size than the background stars and then stuck over each star to make individual shaker boxes.
...and just like that...a whole lot of prettiness.
