Reverse Confetti Spring Fling Blog Hop



Welcome to Reverse Confetti's Spring Fling Blog Hop! Several of the design team girls are getting together today to share some cheery, springtime inspiration for you! The hop begins at the Reverse Confetti blog, where you'll find the hop list and all the giveaway info. If you're already hopping, you should have arrived here from Laurie Schmidlin's blog. And when you're finished here, you'll visit Lisa Henke next.

Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store ... just in time for our May 8 release (also Reverse Confetti's second birthday!). Comments are open until May 1.

Teacher Appreciation is next week, and I've created an adorable and inexpensive treat using images and a sentiment from The Buzz, a miniature glass canister, and some yellow and black jelly beans.


I picked up this darling miniature glass canister at Hobby Lobby recently, and filled it with layers of black and yellow jellybeans. 



I tied on a Tag Me Confetti Cuts die (the small one) with some black and white baker's twine. On the tag are a simple banner sentiment and a small bee, stamped with The Buzz and die-cut with The Buzz Confetti Cuts dies.



The top of the jar is the perfect size for the large bee, also from The Buzz  I adhered the bee's body with a large glue dot, then curled the wings up for dimension.



A closer look at the sweet tag.





STAMPS: The Buzz

CONFETTI CUTS DIES: The Buzz, Tag Me

PAPER: light gray and white card stock

OTHER: vellum, glass jar, jellybeans, black and white baker's twine, 


Your next stop: Lisa Henke

After you done hopping, head over to Reverse Confetti's Facebook page, where you'll find a "Win It Before You Can Buy It" promotion. Good luck!

Enjoy the hop, and thanks so much for stopping by!
