Happy May!
I recently took part in a group Swap with a Facebook group and had the great opportunity to create some Alice In Wonderland themed items. The requirements were to make a Mini Loaded envelope measuring 4' by 6', as well as 5 Embellishments, a Large Tag, and a Wand.
I designed the envelope in no time using Cricut Design Space, and went to work on making sure all the pieces were cohesive.
Behind Alice is a pocket, designed with Cricut Design Space and layered with specialty trims.

I made this large Rose with Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore Air2, Liquitex Gesso, Glitter, and a gem and key. Other flowers were from my stash.

I added charms throughout to tie in the Alice in Wonderland Theme.

The front of the wand has a teapot, topped with a mini sequin heart, and added glitter. I made the rosette with the Cricut, and added gold acrylic paint throughout, with seam binding, lace, and fuzzy pink feather trim.


The back of the wand has a Rabbit with time clock. I used Cricut Print & Cut to make him, added glossy accents, a charm, and backed him with a Cloth heart, layered with Washi Tape, and embellished with Gold paint and heart sequins.

The large tag was embellished with Ranger Liquid pearls, Seam binding, twine, and another Rabbit charm.

The large tag has a caption made with Cricut Print and Cut, a butterfly border, gold trim, and is glittered, as well as embellished with gold paint and liquid pearls. 


The back of the tag was finished. 

The small tags completed the requirements of 5 dies. I made toppers with a diecut, and used the Cricut Explore Air 2 to make teacups with little tea bags. The little hearts were topped with stickles. The trims are gold and peach tones.



I also added these cute little Prima buttons as a gift. I loved the colors!











The other little gifts were stickers, keys, and stamps, and they all got topped off with more images of Alice, the Mad hatter, and different dies. 
These little altered clips helped hold things together.
On the back, instead of a traditional pocket, I added a doily to hold the goodies, and a small envelope and card, made with my Cricut. 

The little envelope and pink  lace.
One of the clips was a small shaker I made with a tiny bow and sentiment.


I also used a lacy background from Design Space to finish the back, then distressed it with Gesso, glitter, and gold paint splatter.
Sadly, one of my favorite components is not pictured here, as I forgot to take pictures of the Altered envelope and Spoon that I also made for my swap partner.
I will post more pictures separately of the rest of the swap contents!!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and thank you for being a subscriber!!

I hope that you are also inspired to create your own. I have made a 2-part video series to show you how you can easily make your own version of dies that you love, but might not be easily accessible, or if you're anything like me, you want to be resourceful!
