Baby Shower Favors

Here are two favors that I made for a baby shower recently.
The mom-to-be is environmentally responsible, so I gave the ribbon a dual-function.
Unwrap it from the package, and it opens into a bookmark to remember the special little someone.
The Certainley Celery pillow box was made using the Big Shot pillow box die; it's fabulously easy to use! Then I stamped the baby's initials on the card stock with the Define Your Life Alphabet set. The circle and star were cut from SU! punches.

Oh, and inside there was enough room for 2 balls of Lindt chocolate. The brown paper package (not tied up with string, ...) was whipped up from the extra wrapping that SU! uses when they ship packages. It's totally recycled and re-used, and more importantly, large enough to hold 2 Ghiradelli chocolates.

If you want to make pillow box favors for an upcoming party, shower, or wedding, please contact me soon!

Battle for Perfectionism

I'm finally blogging again. I was pursuing a university course that took much of my free time. And then I felt overwhelmed by all the things I hadn't blogged because I wanted to show them properly. [The previous post was just a half-hearted attempt at a post.] So, that kept me from sharing what I've done. So, I'm going to just share what I want instead of feeling that I have to "catch up" or show things in "chronological" order. Oh my!

Anyway, I'm finally breaking ground, and this post is my attempt to get back into the habit of blogging again. I want to be sharing with you again, even if my posts don't live up to my idea of perfect. So, no photos today, just text, here I am again.

I have several evenings available to come over and show you and your friends techniques that you can use on dad, grad, and birthday cards. Just contact me so we can set up a date!
