Smartie Pants on a Balloon Ride...

When I saw this idea online and pinned it, I just KNEW it would be one of those things I would actually make instead of it just sitting on  my Pinterest Board.  I also knew that I would be making it with PAPER since it's my favorite...especially this paper!

I used CTMH's Balloon Ride Paper Packet for the pants and a strip of CTMH's Jubilee Paper Packet for the Honey waistband.

I free-handed the pants template on Cardstock then cut two pieces out of Balloon Ride B&T (if you stack the 2 pieces together and cut once, make sure you put the two-like patterns of B&T together when cutting out...just like a sewing pattern).

I stitched with Orange Thread (because that's what was already in my sewing machine...I'm lazy like that!) and added some Hemp Baker's Twine...it's tied to the Smartie Rolls and once you untie the bow, you can pull up and the Smarties will exit the pants!

-------------------------------------
Here's a side view...I was hoping you could see the dimension of the pants with the Smarties bulging.  The heart is one cut from the Artbooking Cartridge...a heart border and I just cut a single heart from it...turned it over onto a Smoothie Ink Pad and worked it around 'till it was good and inked up.

Here's a top view so you can see the little pockets created for the Smarties...


Thanks for stopping by...I hope you find some inspiration and create your own Smartie Pants for your Valentine!
