The Designer Series Paper I chose is the Tea Room paper, this paper is not as thick as some of the others which make this perfect for the 2 projects I made.  The first one is a cute party hat which will be for my niece Lily on her 11th birthday.  I just used a cereal box or you can use any soft cardboard I pulled apart a cheap old party hat as a template and used liquid tombow to glue together.  The silver ribbon is retired but I needed silver so used it, the other ribbons are Rich Razzelberry Velvet and metallic edge Berry Burst.  The flower I made out of vellum which I have a few in my stash I made a while ago, you can use a pompom if you like.  I cut the silver circle out using the starburst punch and cut out the 11 with Rose Shimmer Paper and used the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set using Rich Razzelberry ink and popped it up with some dimemsionals.

For my second project I made an envelope flip book style to add small gifts.  I used 4 Whisper White envelopes and scored 1/4inch above the fold line of each envelope, I then added score tape just above the fold and a bit of liquid glue and adhered each envelope (if you google envelope flip book there are lots of tutorials very easy) after that its up to you how you decorate it, I also used a 2 1/4n inch punch and punch out a semi circle opening so you can get the goodies in and out easier.  The butterfly is cut out of Rose glimmer paper and I used the Springtime impression thinlet. For the border on each page I used the Edgelit Thinlet set these are beautiful and cut out easily.

The above picture is what I put in the inside of each pocket.  I made the little see through bags using vellum and washy tape and put in our new buttons. Its also a good way to use up your retired stock to give as gifts.
