Tiki Hut Aloha


This is what happens when you wake up at 2:00 AM.....only 2 hours after you went to bed! The ideas start spinning, and you just cant wait to try at least one of them! So I got myself up and made a tiki shaped gift card holder/ card. Oh and a mess....seems I am super messy when I am tired, my friends call this my "crafting whirlwind" ...........pretty accurate actually!


 I made the hut with the Cricut Luau cartridge, and tweaked it a little in Cricut Craft Room, by adding a "shadow" layer for the card base. After that it was just a matter of gluing it together since the cut has all of the elements included...I opted to have a surfboard leaning against the bar, and a big pink flower!


The roof has a layer of grassy fringe that was cut from a roll of garland { think Christmas tree garland here } I used a line of triple T to stick it down and just snipped the rest away.....did I mention I made a mess? LOL But really it was easy to just swipe of the counter! then I stamped the roof with a big stamp, and the most important part..GLITTER!!!! {heart} Check out that fab-o-rific SRM sticker sentiment tag, I soooo love having the perfect saying that I can stick to a tag!!! 

 Now for some sleep... Happy creating 'yall~

Darling tiki bar - love all of the colors, the glitter, and the "palm thatched roof". And the leaves, and the flowers, and the patterned paper surf board. And all of it! Wonderful, Shantaie!
