Yee-haw! It's a bridal shower!

I recently needed a gift bag for a gift card to give a good friend's daughter at her bridal shower, and this is what I came up with!

The boot design is (of course) an SVG Cuts file from their Happy Trails svg kit. I embossed some pearly white paper for the sides using an Anna Griffin folder called Foundry.

If you are thinking that this is not your traditional type of bridal shower gift bag, then you need to peek at the card that went with it too...

I made this pop up card in a recent class with Karen Burniston. The barn doors actually slide open to reveal a little message.  I've only recently discovered her designs and they are so fun!  I couldn't stop admiring all the samples she brought to class, especially the ones that use her accordion dies - interactive cards are just the the best!

I guess if you know the bride-to-be then you'd understand why she LOVED her boot and card.  She's a fun, confident, farm loving girl, and thinking of her always makes me smile.

Now to figure out what to make for the actual wedding... lol!

Birthday Tea Pot

I've been busy, busy, busy!  But I have been having some crafty fun too.

This victorian style tea pot is part of the Honeybee Tea kit by SVG Cuts.  I LOVE this design and I LOVE this Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper collection.

I shrunk the design a bit to reduce the size of the pot to about 7" or 8" (oops, forgot to take a final measurement!).  That made it a bit tricky to assemble the spout and lid knob, but worth it because I really like the more petite size.

This was used as a birthday gift box for a cash gift - I tightly rolled up the bills and tied them with a thin ribbon bow, leaving one of the tails extra long so I could attach a little "tea bag tag".

A gift within a gift.  :)
