...run with it. The whole card/gift thing I did with the Alpha-blocks stamps is officially and permanently in my box of tricks, to be pulled out and used for future occasions. Sure, there might be some alterations and modifications, but it is here to stay. Wanna see the direction I took it for a baby gift? Read on.
My little girl has a HUGE noggin. (There might have been a CT scan and a trip to the local childrens' hospital to figure that all out. Nothin' she won't grow out of in a few years, fortunately.) The headbands I had bought for her at Wal-Mart never fit. There were several I still had in packaging, unused, unloved. Now, I also have girlfriend with a new baby girl--one who has a cute little head. Time to make a few headbands with PTI dies and felt.
I used a glassine bag to serve as my envelope. Got to decorate it on the outside so it matches the gift inside.
Here's close up of the card. Using Background Basics: Botanicals, appropriate phrases from Button Boutique, and Label Basics to stamp up my project. Refer to my original post on it linked above for the construction details.
Sweet little message inside. I can't tell you have pleased I am that I can make something so personal, yet professional looking with my craft supplies. Very gratifying. I see myself pulling out this little gift from time to time in the future. Hoping I can find some stretchy lace elastic so I can even make the headbands from scratch.
Thanks for stopping by. Got any questions let me know.
