Now onto my project.....
(picture my treat box filled with flower seeds.....I didn't have any on hand when photographing my project)
I made a a flower card/gift box using the adorable freebie file Ruthie over at September Ninth shared at Christmas time~ here is the link to her original post~thanks Ruthie!!!
I started out with the The Kraft Outlet kraft cardstock and designer papers from My Minds Eye~ Playdate paper stack. After all the pieces were cut and adhered to the card base, I ran the side , card/tag part through my sewing machine. Couldn't help the way the stitching looks :)
The sentiment is from My Creative Time~Hello Spring stamp set and I added some yellow stickles to that as well as the yellow brad
Next it was onto making my flower.....this is a total scrap lift from my friend Deb..she made a GREAT tutorial on how to make these twine can check it out HERE she uses the "other" twine...LOL...but this gorgeous flower is using Lemon Tart Trendy Twine.
I added a button to the center using the new stitched button dies from My Creative Time.
The stem is part of the flower cut from Miss Kate Cuttables~ doesn't it look GREAT with that twine flower top???
Finally here is what the tag looks like...plenty of room to write a message. I couldn't leave it plain so I stamped another sentiment from My Creative Time~ Bloom Where You are Planted stamp set and then added some yellow stickles.
What do you think????
Now don't forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team has created today
