Some fun gift ideas!


My projects are using the fabulous set called "Wings of Friendship". I love this set with the new Designer Series Paper "Razzleberry Lemonade". I made a little gift set that features several different projects. Take a look:

Isn't it cute?! Here's a closer look at the individual projects (with a little better lighting!). The first one is a Post It Note holder. I used the Razzleberry Lemonade papers and the sentiment stamp that reads "Your friendship means the world to me". I also used a little of the Razzleberry Polka Dot ribbon. I used a hair band for the closure. I put it underneath the ribbon, so when you open it, the band stays attached to the cover so it won't get lost! In the picture, you can really see my dimensionals I used to attach the sentiment (which is on vellum, by the way!), but it's really not that noticeable in real life. Just the lighting of the camera, I guess.

Here's a picture of it open:

Next is the matching pen! I used some of our Sticky Strip red line tape, which is the bomb for sticking paper, glitter, beads, ribbon, kids up on the walls.......just kidding about that last one! But it's pretty sticky, it would probably work if you wanted to try it! ha ha! I just wrapped the Sticky Strip around the pen and cut a piece of the DSP to fit and rolled it around. And there is some of that awesome Razzleberry Ribbon again!

This is a mini magazine holder shaped box to hold some little 3 x 3 gift cards. I used the Crushed Curry cardstock, stamped some of the other images with the Curry ink to give it a tone on tone look. To jazz it up a little, I stamped the bird and the flower images on vellum with the Razzleberry ink, cut them out and adhered them using dimensionals. I used a strip of the DSP and ribbon around the bottom. Here's a 360 of the box: (just ignore the little back pieces of the dimensionals that are static stuck to the bottome! I don't know how I didn't notice that while taking the pics!)



Here are the cute little 3 x 3 cards that are inside the box. I used most of the patterns of the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP on them with the sentiment again. Our Wide Oval punch and Large Oval Punch work so great with many of our sets! These are all of the new In Colors! Minus the Rich Razzleberry - it's the color of the ribbon I've used on it. The colors are - Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, and Crushed Curry. Don't they sound as yummy as they look?!

Well, that's all my projects! I hope you enjoyed them!

I love the idea of the hair band under the ribbon! So clever! I love the idea of sticking the kids up on the wall with the sticky strip too! Now that's brilliant, especially now that they're older and it's the only way to keep track of them in the neighborhood!! Great projects!
