2011: Garrett Popcorn
This Garrett Popcorn spread is one of my favorites from my early scrapbooking period. We were up in Chicago with a friend, and this was one of her places on her bucket list. While it only contains one picture from Garrett Popcorn, I love what I was able to do with all of the ephemera that we collected in our short stay in the store.
I chose a blue background for this spread to match the blue of the company colors. On the lefthand page I have the one picture from the location, the blue plastic bag from the store, and a napkin. The righthand page has a promotional card and a small brochure in the bottom righthand corner that is affixed to the outside of the plastic page protector so that it can be opened. Above that is a transparent plastic bag that I cut and then attached to the page using brads and my Crop-A-Dile Big Bite Punch. I did this so that you would not see adhesive tabs under this piece.
But my favorite piece on the spread is the bag of popcorn that is spilling out onto the page! While at the store I asked if I could have an extra empty popcorn bag as I knew that I might be able to use it in the scrapbook. I found some card stock that had popcorn on it in a food themed paper book and cut that to size to fit into the bag. I also used a pair of sharp pointed scissors to cut out the outline of the popcorn, as well as some individual pieces that I could also put on the page. I then used sticky foam pieces to make these stand out on the page so that it would look more three dimensional. Once I had built this piece, I cut it at an angle with a paper cutter and attached the sides to the pages.
