Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Blog-hop-logo




Hello everyone,

I'm back again for second go at this months Blog Hop

This month it is all about wrapping it up.  Whether you are preparing early for the holidays or have an upcoming birthday or two, have fun experimenting with fabric & felt packaging ideas.  Use any of our Favor It dies with felt and a little hot glue gun action or stitching.  Use a pretty piece of fabric like you would wrapping paper and make a custom tag to coordinate with it.  Not into sewing or gluing?  Wrap a kitchen towel or cloth napkin around a special bottle of wine and top it off with a hand-stamped gift label.  Or rip a strip of fabric to use in place of ribbon and finish it with a pretty handmade gift card.  There are so many different things to try, you will love experimenting to see what you can come up with!  We look forward to seeing your projects!


I have had some pretty dotted green felt in my stash for a while and wondered what to do with it so Nichole's idea of using felt with a favor it die struck a chord and I decided to have a go. I only have one favor it die so choice was easy but cutting the thick felt was not and I had to go in with scissors to finish it off.





The felt did not hold its shape well, so I cut another shape out of white card and stuck it to the back of the felt to give it some structure.




I stuck it together, attached some dotty red ribbon, added a tag made with the Tranquillity Trilogy dies, and stamped and embossed it with a polka dot background stamp.



 I finished off with a little tag stamped with a sentiment from Christmas Lights.

That is all from me today because I am off for dinner and to see Sister Act at the theatre tonight and like Cinderella, I have to do some cleaning before I go to the ball. I look forward to getting a cup of tea and settling down to look through all the lovely entries tomorrow.

Hugs

  2. So cute! This is one of my favourite dies Carol and I love what you've done with it. How clever to use felt even if it does have to be finished with a scissors. I often have to snip my die cuts too as my cuttlebug is rather ancient and like me has lost its youthful sharpness!
