I got a sample and was able to review the Bic Permanent Markers 36 count set. LOVE!
I cut out the Nativity scene (Taylored Expressions) using the plastic packaging from an embossing folder. Then used some alcohol ink and the red Bic marker to color the plastic. I also drew on red snowflakes on the outside of the bulb.
The red ribbon was included in my sample. I added some glitter to the inside of the bulb. Getting the Nativity inside the bulb was a challenge because there are a lot of parts to the Nativity die that like to attach themselves to anything nearby. So, after trying this with paper (which didn't work...I couldn't get it to unroll), I decided on the plastic so that it would unroll, but I also rolled it covered in waxed paper, then I pulled the waxed paper out with tweezers. Whew! It worked! It's just the perfect size to fill the bulb.
These are poinsettias cut out from the Sizzix Tattered Poinsettia die There are so many colors in the set it was easy to find matching colors that worked perfectly with the cardstock.
