Hop with Tombow and MME

Hey, hey it's Saturday!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend wherever you are. 

All weekend the Tombow team is hopping with the My Minds Eye team to share some fun projects with you. 

You should have arrived at my blog from Valerie O'Neall's awesome blog, if not you can go back to the Tombow blog and start from the beginning.

I am sharing projects created with the Now and Then Milo collection.  I love the colors in this collection and have created two completely different projects using all of the goodies.

For my first project, I wanted to use this fun anchor paper, I love anything nautical!  I used Tombow Extreme Glue Tape to adhere each of the layers to the card with the excepting of the waves.  I used Tombow Foam Tabs to pop up the waves for some fun dimension.  I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens to color the lighthouse.  The silver eyelets are from the MME Enamel Elements pack and they are the perfect touch!

Next, I want to share some fun little treat boxes with you.

I love that this collection has both feminine and masculine papers and elements in it.

I used Tombow Xtreme Glue Tape to hold the boxes together as it is super strong. I used Tombow Mono Multi to adhere the print panels to the box and again to attach the decorative elements.  These boxes are the perfect little gifty for someone special.

 Commenting for your chance to win this blog hop prize will end March 30th at Midnight EST! We will announce the Winner on March 31st via our Social Media outlets!

The prize will include:
