Watermelon Buddy is the first of our new designs!! What better way to cool off during the hot summer than with an ice cold slice of watermelon? Mmmmm...
I was able to find some watermelon candy and made this little favor. Want a pattern? Click here. There are two pattern pieces...one piece for the backing and one piece for a little watermelon-shaped notecard on top. You'll also need to cut a piece of coordinating paper to cover the front flap of the card, as shown below:
On the backing piece...score along the dotted line and fold over to form a 1/4" tab. Place double stick tape along this tab. Also, fold the watermelon card in half (make sure the printed side of the paper is on the inside...that's where you'll be able to write your note). Match the fold of the card to the top of the backing piece and attach. Next, stamp the sentiment "Sending You Watermelon Smiles" onto the coordinating paper and glue it onto the front flap of the card:
I filled a 3" x 4" plastic bag with the watermelon candy and taped it to the backing piece to keep it from moving around:
Fold the back flap of the card over your bag of candy...center a 4" piece of ribbon...and staple all the layers together:
Punch a 1/8" hole into the front flap of the card...this is where you'll thread the ribbon to tie the card closed. Then just decorate with little Buddy!!!
Giveaway time!!! To win these two new stamps...just leave me a comment by midnight tomorrow, June 19 (Hawaii time). I'll announce the winner on Saturday, June 20...so, remember to check back to see if you won because I'll need to get your address!! Besides watermelon...tell me your favorite way to cool off during the hot, hot summer (It's already starting to be the hottest summer in recent memory here in Hawaii!!!). When I was young, my aunt would mix strawberry syrup, water and evaporated milk...then freeze it in ice cube trays while we went out to play. By the time we came back in the house it would be frozen and ready for us to eat!!! Yumm!!! Looking forward to your comments...stay cool!!!
