This set provides the inspiration for a flirty romantic evening at the beach to watch the sunset….sparkling water, peanuts or crackers, then a canister to save your shells and sea glass that you collect while the sun is setting.
What could be more unforgettable? A perfect evening and then a fun way to save your beach treasures and memories. (as a little note - glass and alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the beaches near me. This project is very mindful of that and uses sparkling water for the "bubbly" and plastic wine glasses. )
This was created using a peanut can – I decided to use my can for fish crackers . The matching plastic wine glasses are beach safe for toasting with sparkling water ( also beach safe).
Best part of this? The decorative trims on the plastic wine glasses slip off so they can be washed.
The jute around the stem of the wine glass is both decorative and purposeful. I placed it there for a nautical/beachy look however it has functionality as well. When your hands are sandy or wet, the jute will provide more grip so that you do not spill your beverage. No one wants to be on a date and have a beverage spill ( smile).
This was created using the Life by the Sea collection by Maja Design.
featuring the following papers:
Maja Design Life by the Sea Collection – Sailing (background paper)
Maja Design Life by the Sea Collection – Nautic (punched edges)
I also used the new Blue Fern chipboard on the front of the project - Blue Fern Studios - Nested Circles.
Please ask SB.com to carry the wonderful Maja Design papers. Then perhaps you can buy them all right here! How great would that be?
My blog has directions for this project, tons of close ups and a lot more description. This was way too much fun to create. http://scrap-escape.blogspot.com/
