Hi friends! Dani from @popfizzpaper here and today I'm sharing three ways to use Papercakes Potion Mixes in your crafting. I incorporated my tips into one super cute mini pocket letter so you can see them in action. Keep reading to see up close pictures!
Here are the products I used for this project:

A fun way to decorate your crafts is to make your own sequin tassels. I strung a bunch of the Papercakes sequins onto different lengths of string, then tied them together. I added a cute purple skull charm from the Spooky Pastel add on kit. To finish up, I tied the sequin strings onto a pretty paperclip and adhered a sequin bow from the shop. Not only does this give my finished project a pretty look, but my penpal can deconstruct the tassel to use the sequins in her own project!
Potion Mixes also work great as an accent on any craft! Here on my first card, I decided to use a pretty floral pattern paper from the Slay It Girl collection. I glued sequins on the centers of the flowers, then layered on smaller seed beads to add extra sparkle.
Of course, you can also use Potion Mixes to create really pretty shaker pockets, like I did here in the middle pocket of my mini pocket letter. This was one of the retired Potion Mixes from the Holiday collections, but the Unicorn Mix would look also gorgeous with this color scheme. I love using older collections in my crafts, especially when they are as versatile as the Papercakes collections.
For my last card, I decided to revisit using the Potion Mix as an accent. However this time, I just used the seed beads from the Potion Mix. I created a circular embellishment and added a ring of beads around it. I think it gives the card a subtle, pretty sparkle. I love it!
