Hi! I'm sharing a project tutorial that I created for Canvas Corp today. I always collect shells when I visit the beach. I had a lot of fun using some of my favorite finds to create gift cases. These small cases are the perfect way to deliver a gift to a fellow beach lover. Try tucking a strand of pearls, an engagement ring or keys to a new beach bungalow inside these natural containers to help make an occasion extra special.
Beach Sampler on Ivory
Black + Ivory Sail Away Sampler
Jute Rope Cord
Jute Rope Light Natural Hank 14'
Mini Clothespins - White
Tissuestock - White
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Iridescent Gold
Step 1: To create three gift cases, collect, clean and dry several shells that are approximately the same size. Spray the outside of the shells with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.
Step 2: Using a power drill, drill two small holes into the back edge of each shell. Tie two shells together with Jute Rope Cord to create one gift case. Repeat the process with the other four shells.
Step 3: Wrap a small gift in White Tissuestock and place inside a shell case. Cut a length of Canvas Fringe and wrap around a shell case. Next, cut a length of White Cord, wrap the cord around the shell case and tie into a bow. For a more masculine look, cut a length of Burlap Fringe and wrap around a shell case. Next, cut a length of Jute Rope and knot it around the shell case.
Step 4: Cut tags and images from the Beach Sampler on Ivory and the Black + Ivory Sail Away Sampler papers. Attach the tags and designs to the shell cases with Mini White Clothespins.
What would you tuck inside these shells?
I hope I have inspired you! Thanks for stopping by today!
