Today we are back with a peek at what's inside the gift bag I shared with you all yesterday. I wanted to make something small for a co-worker's new workspace, and this is what I came up with.
I started with just a regular white frame that has a 3.5 x 3.5 opening. To that I added some of our Pretty in Pink striped grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot around the bottom. I cut a 3.5 x 3.5 square of an Old Olive pattern from the designer series paper Play Date. (I won it at Convention and it has been SO fun to play with) To that I added the Fleur de lis, also in Old Olive, from the Sale-a-Bration set Bliss. I love that as a demonstrator I get to pre-order things from upcoming catalogs and promotions! This set is one you won't want to miss. I stamped the sentiment (not Stampin' Up but one I had in my stash), on a piece of So Saffron patterned paper, also from Play Date. I colored the flower petals with my Rose Red marker and the leaves with the Old Olive marker. I popped it up with some dimensionals in the middle of the Fleur de lis. To the bottom I added a small strip of a Daffodil Delight patterned paper from Sweet Stitches, punched with the scallop border punch, and topped it off with a piece of Rose Red patterned paper from the Designer Series Brights pack. Here's a close up of what it looks like in the middle.
I hope she likes it and it adds a bright spot to her day when she hangs it. I would love to hear from all of you what you think, too.
