A trip to Michael's is like a trip to the candy store for me. I picked up this wooden box for like 80 cents (I always have those 20% off everything coupon...lol) So it was sitting on my desk so I grabbed this week and let creativity take me over.
The Heartfelt Creations Papers have some very cool sheets with tags on them. So I chose 8 of the ones that looked beautiful folded and I ran some stickles over the images to dress them up for gift tags. I made envelopes for them to fit in and i put them inside this box. It was so much fun to make! Here is what I used:
HCPC 3484 Pumpkin Harvest PreCut Set
HCPC 3453 Malabar Clematis PreCut Set
HCD 719 Cross and Lilies Die
HCPC 3405 Leaf Medley PreCut Set
125079 Ironwork Accents Shapeabilities
472123 Foliage Shapeabilities
354802 Classic Oval Lg
HCDP1 224 Classic Editions Paper Collection
Other Products: S4-356 Spellbinders Floral Oval Nestabilities, Recollection Rhinestones, Ranges Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, Ribbon, Modge Podge, Copic Markers of Choice for Coloring image, Ribbon, FolkArt Metallic Antique Copper Paint, Foam Brush, Wood Box from Michael's, white card stock, corner rounder, adhesives.

Bearzi, you could turn a bin full of garbage into a beautiful masterpiece w/out spending a dime; however, it may not smell too pretty and don't send it to me - LOL! Just my way of saying, your creativity of putting so many details into your work is mind boggling and beautiful. What a work of art!
