May Arts Nautical Challenge

Today I have a couple of fun projects to share with you that I created for a Nautical Themed Party for May Arts' Nautical Challenge.
101_2736 (900x675)
The first is the plastic cutlery holder made with an altered envelope. I glued the envelope shut and then cut with a scallop punch. It is decorated with digi stamp images from Birdie Brown and colored with Dual Brush Pens. The twine is from May Arts.

The lighthouse is popped up with Foam Tabs. 101_2737 (900x675)
I also created an altered candle using Mono Adhesive Power Bond and Mono Adhesive Dots for a favor.  101_2739 (900x675)
All the ribbon is from May Arts. I use the Power Bond adhesive for the ribbon around the lid edge. The anchor and scallop were cut with my Silhouette and Nestiblilities die.
