Happy Holidays to ALL! Here we are 7 weeks later, with our final projects for the Sizzix Triple-Play Blog-Hop! With all the busyness of the holidays, I decided (well, needed) to keep this weeks entry very quick and easy! The great thing is that's possible when you're working with such well designed dies. This die comes with several bag topper size options and shapes ready for embellishing. You can slap a bit of paper and tie a ribbon and waalaa a handmade gift that looks very special! Simple as that!
I decided to look a bit into the future and think about Valentine's Day. We all know the sentimental meaning of a single rose, so I thought I'd create a simple gift bag to hold one dried rose. I also think this would be a great way to save a dried flower from a special wedding or other event. When my kids were still at home we often had roses tied upside down on cupboard door handles for drying. The girls couldn't simply put their old flowers in the compost barrel, no, they had to save them all! A simple see-thru bag with a topper and a note would have been a great way to organize their treasures. Now, why didn't I think of this before!
