I was asked by the local Library to create a craft at a Volunteer Luncheon that they were having as a Thank You to these lovely ladies! The theme was butterflies and here is what I came up with!!!
These little Curvy Keepsake Boxes were a hit!!! They were able to pick from 4 different colors. We stamped butterflies all over with the Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set! The boxes were assembled using Fast Fuse adhesive and then we added on the Butterflies on the outside! The top butterfly was cut out in Vellum! They are so cute!
The other project that everyone got to make was 1 of these bookmarks! I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 5-1/2″ x 2″. The tops were punched out using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and Ornate Tap Topper Punch!
The Butterfly Bookmark used the Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set and coordinating Bitty Butterfly Punch and Elegant Butterfly Punch! We used Tangelo Twist and Hello Honey. The greeting is from the Lovely Amazing You Stamp Set and I just had to brush the edges with my Sponge Daubers! I couldn’t resist! I used some of the Tangelo Twist and Hello Honey Satin Stitched Ribbon for the top!
The Flower Bookmark uses the Crazy About You Stamp Set for the flowers and leaves! The colors used were Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi! We punched out the flowers with the coordinating 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch! We used Calypso Coral Seam Binding for the top!
Both of these projects were lots of fun to create and simple enough for those who have never crafted before. It was a wonderful time celebrating all the amazing things these women do at the Library and they really enjoyed the afternoon! I had so much fun!
Clever and cite too! These are all winners and I know they really did enjoy them. Great ideas Laura.
