Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop
So I needed some stamp therapy after work, and decided to play along with the Papertrey Ink blog hop that was already in progress. I skim (key word) the inspiration photo and see that the theme is focused on wraps! So I find a little krafty bag and decide to turn it into a cookie wrap for the holidays....
I stamped the bag with a print from Background Basics: Botanicals and then dotted the insides of the flowers with White Opal Liquid Pearls. Cut the top edge of the bag with the Pearl Lace border die from Memory Box.
I cut a coordinating tag with Tag Sale #3 die and then placed a section cut with the Hexagon Coverplate over the top. Filled in the spaces with images from Happy Hexagons and some Authentique "Festive" patterned paper. Added a sentiment from Holiday Button Bits...AND...went to upload my photo....AND
....realized that the hop was to focus on felt or fabric wraps! Not a stitch of fabric or felt on my little holiday project...unless you count the Vintage Cream grosgrain bow. I fully expect to be disqualified, but was glad that I got to enjoy a bit of stamping time while the kids played with the neighbors, enjoying the last bits of warm weather!
