Cinco de Mayo Themed Treat Bag Tutorial Featuring Sabor Papel Ole' Collection

Hola everyone! Tammy here with a fun treat bag tutorial just in time for Cinco de Mayo! I love to entertain friends in the Springtime and these fiesta themed party decorations are perfect. I picked up some decorations at the dollar store and I wanted to embellish them so they would all coordinate, so here is what I did.
Sizzix machine
Tim Holtz die
Xyron adhesive
Paper flower or embellishments of your choice
Adhesive backed rhinestone 

Use a 2"x6" piece of cardstock and run it through a Sizzix machine with the Tim Holtz die shown.
 Run the embellishment through a Xyron machine to make it a sticker
 Attach the embellishments to the gift bag and trim the excess off the top
 Cut a piece of card stock and trim the ends to create a banner shape
 Add adhesive to the flag and attach it to the straw
I love how this turned out and it matches all of the other embellishments I made for the party!

A Day in the Life of Kunin Felt Enthusiasts: Olive Branch Wreath Tutorial by Tammy Santana

Welcome to "A Day in the Life of Kunin Felt Enthusiasts"

Join us for everyday with Kunin, from morning until night, whether a mug rug to enjoy your morning coffee from, working in the garden or a welcoming wreath on the front door.

I love all of the beauty that Spring brings to Southern California. I love the beautiful olive trees in my home town when they bloom every year. I wanted to capture some of the beauty of those trees in a wreath for my front door. Not many people realize that olive trees have beautiful white flowers on them for about 10 days before the olives start to grow. I was able to capture the essence of those flowers with felt and I really like how the project turned out. 

 You can easily make a wreath for your front door also.

Supplies I used:
Kunin Premium Felt in olive green and white
Hot glue gun
Black permanent marker
Yellow paint
Wreath form
Glue Dots

How to make the wreath
1. Start with a piece of olive green felt approx. 3"x12" and cut out olive leaves as shown below. Continue cutting enough leaves to cover the circumference of the wreath form. Tie each olive leaf pair to the wreath with a simple knot.

2. Cut out small star shaped flowers out of the white felt and place two small dots of yellow paint on each flower. Cut out small olive shapes from the green felt.

3. Cut out a leaf shaped piece of felt to glue the white flowers and green olives to. Use a black permanent marker to color some shading on the green olives.

4. Attach flowers and olives to wreath with a hot glue gun or Glue Dots.

You can easily change out the decorations on your wreath by simply cutting out shapes from Kunin Printzfelt and attaching them with mini clothes pins glued to the back of the embellishment.

Thank you for enjoying this part of your day with Kunin. Hope you enjoyed this project and will be inspired to create your own Earth Day project and share on Kunin's Facebook Page.

Let's be friends!

Birthday Fiesta Card Featuring Sabor Papel

Any day can be a fiesta when you have beautiful Sabor papel cardstock cutouts and papers. If you are lucky to have a birthday in the month of May, why not make it a fiesta! This 3D pop-up card is so easy to make whether you have a cutting machine or not. Here is how I made it.

How I assembled the card:

2. Cut out an outer card large enough to fit the pop up portion and also the cutouts.
3. Add foam tape to the cutouts for added dimension
