A very special recognition for a very special group of people.
My daughter’s teacher asked me to make up some gift boxes for veterans who would be attending their Patriots Day Celebration. Here’s what I came up with.
I made up 12 boxes and put just a few little goodies and treats inside. I tied the cellophane bags with a wired ribbon and stuck a small American Flag in the bow.
I made post it note holders using square coasters and binder clips that I had covered with Patriotic Papers. I found some Hershey Kisses in blue and silver star wrappers for Veteran’s Day. I made little baggy toppers.
I made covers for the popcorn bags to coordinate with everything in the gift boxes.
The tags were made using the 2-tag die and the big shot.
I love everything about Fall, the weather, the decorating, fall cooking and baking….but most of all the anticipation of the holidays! This is definitely one of my favorite times of the year!
Here are a couple of my recent Fall projects.
All Supplies are from Stampin’ Up!
This card is truly elegant….much more so than the picture can begin to show. The leaves are stamped with Gold ink on Vellum cardstock and embossed with Gold embossing powder. The “Give Thanks” image is also stamped with gold ink and embossed with gold embossing powder on Brushed Gold Metallic Cardstock.
This card uses the Autumn Days Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! The card measures 5-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ The soft suede color measures 5-1/4″ x 8-1/5″ and is folded at 5-1/4″ to make a pocket on the front. The ribbon holds the pocket closed–there’s no need to tape it.
I’ve been playing with this layout that I found in a magazine. I used the Bigshot with the Circle Scallops #2 die, and the Circle Scissors. The flower pots from Stampin’ Up!’s Blooming with Love Stamp Set are perfect for paper piecing.
