It's my day on the Eyelet Outlet blog, where I'm musing on the many and varied sources of inspiration. In this case, the expression "Strawberry Moon" (referring to a full moon in the month of June; traditionally thought to be the best time for picking strawberries) How is it possible to be a 50+ year old "word person" and never heard that?? Well, somehow I hadn't, until last week, but as soon as I did, all I could think of was strawberry-themed papercrafting projects. Luckily I had nearly a whole package of luscious Eyelet Outlet Strawberry Brads to help me out!
I made a card first, o'course. You may suspect I built the entire thing around the punny sentiment, but I can neither confirm nor deny such speculation. (Ok, YES!!! You know me too well!)
I scattered Strawberry Brads and strawberry flowers --made from the smallest White Paper Flower Layers with Yellow Oval Bling centers-- in a cascade down the front of the card, surrounding the sentiment, for which I combined die-cut letters and a few tiny alphabet stickers.
Next I decorated a little cardstock box with more White Paper Flower Layers held on with a Strawberry Brad. Gift-wrapping is probably my favorite "alternate" use for crafting supplies; because really, we all secretly want to receive a very fancy package now and then, don't we?
Were you inspired by the Strawberry Moon, as well? If so, I'd love to see what you made, leave me a link in the comments! ♥
