Hi Dandi Crafters! I made this cute little microwave popcorn slider sleeve. It is so darling and makes a super little appreciation gift. Can you say teacher appreciation which is right around the corner. LOL I use this super cute popcorn digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique.
I used my Make The Cut enabled Cricut to cut the decorative polka dotted paper. I just used my paper trimmer to cut the yellow card stock. I then drew a few pieces of popcorn in my image editor and made them svgs and cut the pieces of popcorn out using my make the cut software.
The yellow card stock is cut at 11 inches wide x 6.5 inches in height
Polka dotted card stock (pattern is just one of my pattern papers that I designed over the years) was cut at 10.75 inches wide x 5.7 inches in height.
I also cut a circle out of the middle so I could have that cute popcorn box digital stamp showing through. The sentiment was just something I whipped up and printed out on the pattern paper before cutting. It came out so darling. I then cut out several little pieces of popcorn on white card stock and inked them up using yellow and beige ink to give it a real buttery look. I then added to the popcorn in various spots on the slider to give it a real popped look.
