In the meantime, check out our blog, VC Rocks!. You can also go there if at any point on our hop
you get lost, for a full list of stops on this months hop. You can also start there and then go on to
the other 33 blogs, with some of the most talented papercrafters in the business.
Ok so if you are just arriving here on your hop, you should have come from Sassy Shirley's blog HERE she always has beautiful projects to show you, actually the last two posts on my blog were made by Shirley, she is awesome.
On to my project. Sorry the pictures are up on top, having some difficulty getting this right today. This little gift box was cut with the Bitty Box and Envelope Die and the trusty
Big Shot. I used Perfect Plum, Old Olive and Very Vanilla. Some retired Old Olive Striped Grosgrain for the leaves. The flower was made using the scallop circle punch.
The Bookmark gift inside the box uses some fabric I got from a fabric store, which I cut with the Scallop Circle #2 Die, then melted it with my heat gun and added an Antique Brad and the 5/8" grosgrain in Old Olive for the stem and leaves. I thought this made a great little gift, and so did the recipients. I also made a version of this with my stamp club and everyone just loved it. If you know of any readers in your life, this is a great "just because I care" gift.
Now it is time to move on. Your next stop will be Diane Clark-Sutton here. She is sure to have something fun to show you as well. Thanks for hopping with us this weekend. Hugs,
