My daughter goes to AWANA (a Bible Club) at a local church and this week was the last meeting. So, I needed to make two little gifts for her leaders. I made a set of simple note cards and matching envelops and used the clear boxes the stamp sets from PTI come in to create these cute little purse/boxes. (Those are the note cards that are the decoration on the front of the purse. Now, see those fun red flowers? I created those for the Make it Monday #61 challenge to create a flower using leaf dies. I wanted to make sure I stuck to the challenge specifics so I did use a leaf die for the base layer of the flower on the left. But while I was looking through my dies, I thought the center from the "0" from the "by the numbers" die set would make really cool petals too; they are the top layer of the left flower. After I had die cute the "0"s I saw that they woul make a really fun loopy flower, hence, the flower on the right. I topped both flowers off with a die cut circle covered in glitter. The picture below shows the two dies I used.
Also, I needed a little tag on which to write the message and the For Fun challenge this week was to create a tag.
So, I cut out a tag and stamped the large medallion from "Mehndi Medallion" and "Thank You" from "Through the Trees" both from PTI. I outlined the tag with a black pen (a trick I stole from PTI's Nicole Heady), and something simple and super easy became really elegant. Since the base of the tag is black, I added a small square of white on the backside on which to write.
