I'm stopping in to share a REALLY SWEET Project that I've had Sketched Out for MONTHS!! =)
When I saw the Pretty Pink Posh Valentine's Day Challenge I just KNEW I had to SHARE this!! This is just one of SEVERAL Ideas that I have sketched out and if there were only MORE Hours in a day I could MAKE them ALL to give away as gifts and share them with you so that you could make them to give away too!! A Girl can DREAM RIGHT!!?? LOL!! =)
I think this Project fits with both the First and Second Card in the Challenge Photo!! Using the Stitched Duo 3 Die and by the Heart Shape and the Colors that were used in the Second Card!!
So I started by Die Cutting 2 of the Stitched Duo 3 Die from some Felt!! Then I used my Trimmer to create some 3/8" cuts all the way across the bottom of the Die Cuts just up to where the Curved Top begins on the Die Cut!!
Woven Heart Design!! SQUEAL!! How SWEET is this and SO SPECIAL to give away to someone you CHERISH!! =) I then took the 6mm Strawberry Burst Cupped Sequins and added them to the Woven Pattern in a Design using some of the Crystal Clear Seed Beads to Stitch them on!! I used my Sewing Machine to Stitch all the way around the Heart with some Gold Metallic Thread to a Cardstock Heart Piece in order to add some sturdiness to the Woven Heart!! Then I added another Cardstock Heart Piece to create a Pocket for some Treats!! I used some Double Sided Tape to just adhere the Heart Backing so that the Top of the Heart was open so you can FILL them with whatever you want!! The FUN thing is that they are Large enough to fit a Gift Card so they would make a PERFECT Gift for Teachers or Grandparents during those SPECIAL Occasions that warrant something alittle more substantial than just a Sweet Treat!! =) I've used one of the Mini Tags Dies to stamp my "Best Grandma" Sentiment and then created a FUN Fringe Bow using the Paper Smooches Fringe Die and some Tissue Paper!! A little Tulle and my Gift is ready to Give!! You could even add these to the Front of a Card or Gift Bag and add the Gift Card along with a Special Note or an even Larger Gift!! There are SO MANY FUN Possibilities with this and I LOVE the Idea that they can keep it to use for something else in the Future!! I HOPE you're feeling INSPIRED to look at your Pretty Pink Posh Dies in a Different way!!??
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
