It's been a bit since I have been here with you all. Sorry for that. Been busy. Who knew the beginning of school would be so crazy. I think by the end of next week, the kids and I will be in a good morning routine. Crossing fingers on that!
Anywho... I made these gift cards for my twin Tania and her girls this summer when I went to visit her. They each included a little something since I have been terrible with keeping up with birthdays and Christmas. I know.... for shame.
This is the altered paint can I created for the gift cards to travel in. They just couldn't arrive in Maine all by themselves. And Tania did mention she would like one of my paint cans. But please don't tell my mom as I have not made her one yet ;) I used lots and lots of ribbon on the handle. Can you tell she likes purple? Just like me!!
This is the top of the can. Loving all the bling I got to use on this can. All around the center and then on top. Bling Bling Bling!!
You need a way to open the can to get to the goodies. And here's your key!! I used one of my nesties for the tag. The border was punched with an EK Success border punch.
Peeking inside the can before the lid went on. I also included some Lindt truffles and a hand soap from Bath and Body Works. It all fit in so nicely.
And this is my first attempt at an easel card. I made it for a friend of Tania's (who I know through Tania) who had a new baby a week before I went to visit Tania. I had to try this out and I really like how it came out. I think I may have to make more of these cards. I used DCWV pattern paper from a Spring Stack (can't remember which year) and DCWV cardstock for the base.
This is the top. I did heat emboss the congrats but it didn't photograph too well. The word circles are from Making Memories and I have had them forever. They were perfect for this card. I did a lot of stitching and was quite happy with it. So was Julia!! :)
I made an altered paint can for the PTA to use for donations. I think I took pictures of it but I can't seem to locate them at the moment. I'll keep looking. Or take more pictures!! LOL Enjoy your weekend. I know I am going to!
