CRAFT CONSORTIUM - SANTORO #5

Hi there!
Day 5
and the final day of my projects I made to showcase the adorable
SANTORO collections at CRAFT CONSORTIUM.
Right now there is a sale going on with 25% off!!
So why not pop over and grab a bargain or two.
So my fourth and final project I am sharing is this cute CAROUSEL featuring the papers from KORI KUMI featuring papers from the 8x8 paper collection...
(https://www.craftconsortium.com/product-page/santoro-kori-kumi-8-x8-premium-paper-pack) 
This actually lights up with a battery operated tealight but I could not get a good enough picture to show it.
This is a cutting file which I purchased quite some time ago from a lovely lady ANNE HUXTER whose site is TREASURED TEMPLATES
I thought the papers were perfect for this project and I have to say I adore these Kori Kumi collections! They are so versatile and can be used for so many different projects.
You can see all the SANTORO collections here...

CRAFT CONSORTIUM - SANTORO #4

Hi there!
Day 4
of my projects I made to showcase the adorable
SANTORO collections at CRAFT CONSORTIUM.
Right now there is a sale going on with 25% off!!
So why not pop over and grab a bargain or two.
So my third project I am sharing is this cute card featuring the papers from KORI KUMI 'BEYOND THE SEA'...
I used papers from the paper pad and the base topper from a decoupage set.
Love these characters.
I added a heart and bow in the bottom left corner.
I also made a cupcake/treat box using the 3D decoupage pieces for decoration on the front. I placed some of the fabric flowers on the sides and used some teal ribbon to tie the box closed.
