    Big Kick Die Cutter

    Quick Kutz Nesting Squares Die Cuts

    Cardstock (Pink & Purple) & Ivory scrapbook paper

    Doublesided Tape

    Doublesided Foam Tape (from hardware store)

    Gold Sand

    Starfish (ordered online)

    Transparent Film (I purchased a roll of this from the craft store)

    Palm Tree Paper Punch

    Roll of prestick magnets

    Travel Agent Cards


    I created the STD in MSWord and then printed it out on my personal printer (6 per page).  Then I cut out the purple square using one die cut, and the pink square using two die cuts (to get the window).  I was able to cut 2-3 pieces at once, so this moved along somewhat quickly.  I then used the doublesided tape to adhere the clear sheeting to the pink square to create the window.  Tip - use a dryer sheet to remove the static.  This prevents the sand from sticking to the window.  I also used a palm tree punch on the purple backing and then used a square of green cardstock to create the palm tree on the back.  Then I used the double sided tape to adhere the ivory STD paper to the purple card.  Next I used two layers of doublesided tape to attach the back (purple) to the front (pink window).  I left the top open to pour in the sand and add the starfish, then seal.  Make sure all of the corners overlap so that are no gaps the sand can leak through.  I stuck some magnets on the back and attached the travel agents card so anyone who was really excited could book right away!
