Happy Camper

Do you have a kiddo going to camp this summer?

Make him/her a Happy Camper with this fun care package made with the Vintage Camping kit filled with fun, authentic vintage and vintage-inspired ribbons, ephemera and accessories all  centered on the outdoors.

A great treat to include in your care package is a paper cone filled with homemade granola. Wired evergreen makes a fun handle for this black paper cone.  The tag is assembled using a  vintage postcard  and a  plastic retro tree. Love how the large Scrapbook Adhesive foam squares are strong enough to adhere the tree! The black foam squares are perfect!

This kraft-colored gift box is  a great box to hold cards for your little camper to send home. The front of the box was decorated with vintage scrapbook paper and  postcard scraps, and trimmed with more wired evergreen and a sweet little retro deer- attached again with those awesome foam squares.

This kit is just chock full of materials! So fun working will all of the different paper textures. An Epiphany Crafts Studio Punch makes a playful embellishment on this card.

The background of this card is made using authentic vintage imagery. Looks like just the place a moose would want to hang out in!

Some Aged Tinted Tape and vintage ribbon accents this vintage image. To make the bear embellishment pop out a bit more, I again used foam dots.  To really make something pop, layer the foam dots!

So, here’s a clever little vintage gadget I found the other day. Looks like its from 1971.  Does anyone remember using one of these? I wonder if your toast really gets this golden brown…

Don’t forget to visit the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog for even more vintage inspiration this month! Also, leave a comment somewhere on the blog, and you’ll be entered to win some fun Vintage Street Market/Scrapbook Adhesives stuff! Winner will be announced June 29th!

    Lovely project- want this Granola treat too!! Thanks for an inspiration for this week

  2. what a great set! since my hubby is the director of a camp and all of our sons work with him every summer, we know all about care packages! everyone has to sing for their mail at lunchtime, so someone would almost have to do a broadway number or hip hop routine for this goodie! grins!

    and we never could get toast to turn very brown with those toasters, but never did leave home without it either! how funny!

    have a great week!
