I really try to plan ahead with my PTI assignments to make cards/gifts for people in the future. Such was the case with the Sophia sticker card from April's Alpha-block group post. I knew I was going to need a little somethin' for my best friend's seven year old. Makes, for me at least, assignments for design teams/manufacturers' more enjoyable and meaningful.
Little Sophia's 7th birthday is today and her party was over the weekend. I wanted to add something because I thought the sticker card wasn't enough. Felt flower headbands it ended up being. All to match the card, as well. I used PTI felt and flower dies of all sorts as well as a rolled flower die from My Favorite Things Stamps. Everything was hot glued onto black headbands I picked up at Wal-mart.
Packaged them up in a Kraft window bag. Silhouette die cut flowers and Daydreamer stems in black ink. I LOVE using double sided paper in my die cut machines because I can get the most versatility with each cut. These two patterned flowers were cut with one pass through my machine. Sweet!
Hope ya'll are enjoying summer. I've been cooking a lot of new recipes lately. Watermelon Salad and Grilled Kielbasa and Pierogies made our keeper list this past week. Yum. Give 'em awhirl, I can't see anybody being disappointed. Highly recommend Food Network Magazine too. One of the few that I renewed my subscription this year. We enjoy their little pull outs--50 Pancakes and Waffles, 50 Kebobs, 50 Potato Salads, etc. Been eating well around here, needless to say.
