Believe in Magic! New Skittles release and Challenge!

Welcome to a brand new challenge at DoubleClick Skittles, and.....

a brand new release!

DoubleClick Skittles Challenge #26 - Disney or Mouse

7/22 - 8/4

*New Release - "Believe in Magic" Skittles

We are so excited about Carri's new release, Believe in Magic.  It's the PERFECT embellishment for all your Disney, Mickey Mouse projects, Pirates of the Caribbean  and more! 

Aren't these new colors fabulous?  Don't forget - each batch is hand made and new releases sell out fast so if you are even thinking about ordering, don't wait!

Today, I've created a self-closing box, using my Cricut Explore and papers from the Simple Stories Say Cheese 12x12 paper pad.

This is such a fun box.  All you do is press the sides together and it pops open.  I re-sized this box to approx 6"x10".   I'll share where you can find this file in my supply list at the bottom of this post.

I had so much fun deciding how I would use my Skittles.  I punched out some circles from my designer paper to make the mouse embellishment and added Skittles to the ears.

I also fussy cut the main image here, popped it out with foam squares and added more of the new  Believe in Magic Skittles.

These fussy cut balloons are added to my main image and decorated with more of these bubbly jewels!  I've added some May Arts Ribbon bakers twine for balloon string, as well as the red natural string behind the mouse ears.  Those fun little curly circles are stickers from SRM stickers.

This was such a fun project to make.  I absolutely love it and I adore how magical the new Skittles are!  I hope you fall in love and try some for yourself.  

Don't forget to go here to purchase the new Believe in Magic Skittles.
