Summer Bubble Fun With GlueArts Accent It All!!

Summertime!

Time for outdooor parties, family reunions, day camps and vacation bible school.

All week long we have shared fun ideas for how to use our GlueArts Accent It All for your summer fun!

Today the fun continues!!! Designer Audrey Pettit has a way for you to dress up those bubble containers. Consider an entire matched party theme from the plates, to cups (or water bottles), tags, bubbles, treat containers and more! With GlueArts Accent It All vinyl it's a snap to make everything coordinate!

And Designer Lisa Day had to laugh as she and Patti had a similar idea, definitely showing brilliant minds CAN think alike! Lisa shows how your kids can help decorate their bottles, make them match a theme or favorite color! Continue the theme to the party ware, invites, picture frames and more!! Kids too can help make their own!


Accent It All Bubbles 

GlueArts Designer: Audrey Pettit




Designer Note: Have fun at your next summer party with these dressed-up bubbles containers. They'll add a festive touch to any gathering and they make great party-favors, too. And the best part is, the Accent It All Vinyl clings easily to plastic surfaces, making this project an absolute breeze to create.

Accent It All Vinyl
Extreme Adhesive Squares 
 Micro Extreme Adhesive Squares

Other Supplies:
Fancy Pants Chipboard and Buttons
Fiskars, Stampin'Up, and Hero Arts Stamps

Instructions:

1. Measure the height of your bubble container and cut a piece of Accent It All vinyl to fit, approximately half the height of your container. Peel and stick the vinyl to the center of your container. 

Cut a second piece of vinyl in a contrasting color that is half an inch smaller than your first measurement. Cut a decorative border on both edges of the second piece using a border punch of your choice. Peel and stick to the center of the first strip.

2. Tie a ribbon around the center of your bubble container with a double knot. Cut the ends at a diagonal.

3. Stamp a frame stamp onto white cardstock and trim out. Stamp a summer greeting in the bottom right corner of the frame. Adhere frame to the center of the container using U Cut It Foam adhesive, just to the right of the knotted ribbon.
