WMS May Release - Preview Day 3 - Oodles of Love


Welcome to the final Waltzingmouse May Release Preview day!  Today we are highlighting Compact Sentiments - 2, a compliment set to  Compact Sentiment's  that was released in Feb.

For my project today - I made a little graduation cap box and coordinating card!
The bees and heart circle stamps are from the L'il Buddies set.  The two sentiments are from the new Compact Sentiments -2.





Here's the cap from the top



This cute little graduation cap is a freebie from The Toy Maker. It comes already colored (there's one in black (looks bluish above) and one in white) and includes a paper tassel - but I had a real cord bookmark tassel that I attached to the top with a large brad.  The brad legs show on the inside of the cover shown below - but that little piece of basket shred is almost covering it!  The box is just big enough to hold one of these yummy Ferrero Rond Noir candies - or a roll of cash!
I hope I've inspired you with my creations today!  I appreciate all the lovely comments you've been leaving me during the preview days.


This is our final preview day - tomorrow we'll be back with a Design Team Blog Waltz when the new sets will be available for purchase.  We will be posting at 2 pm EST so Claire has time to reset the store.

Let's check out what the rest of the Design Team has for our enjoyment today!
