"Seaside Picnic Organizer" by Pam Bray
Hi!!!! It is a surprise visit from me (Pam) today here on the Craftwell Blog!!!!
Are you getting excited....
Just a few more days til we celebrate the Fourth of July!!!
Picnics, Fireworks, Watermelon...oh my!!!!
Well today I am sharing with you a fun Picnic Organizer that would make a fabulous item for any holiday or just to have at any time of the year.
I began by using the Cut N Boss with 2 "A" plates and mat board to cut the Canister shapes from.
(You will need to cut enough to form 4 canisters, cut down to make staggering sizes)
Form canisters after you have decided the height of each of them.
Cut pattern paper using Canister die and adhere to sides of prepared canisters.
Adhere prepared canisters together.
Now the fun part....
Flowers!!! Lots of Flowers!!!
Die cut the Pansy Flower out using the Cut N' Boss and 2 "A" Plates.
Die cut thin dies using the Cut N' Boss, 2 "A" plates, "B" plate, metal shim and "D" platform
along with pattern paper.
Using a flower mat, stylus and tweezers form flowers.
Layer together to form flowers.
Adhere die cuts and flowers to prepared Picnic Organizer.
A close look at one side of the Picnic Organizer.

Stain dowels to fit in between the canisters.
Add flags to the dowels from the paper collection.
I hope you have enjoyed my "Seaside Picnic Organizer" and hope I have inspired you to make one for home or to give as a gift.
