Presentation is Everything!

Did you have a good Christmas? I did. I have to say that this Christmas reminded me just how blessed I am. There were a few unexpected surprises along the way that showed me just how much people care. It was a reminder that came at a perfect time. : )

I have a little altered paper sack that I snuck gift cards in for my sister and brother in law. Gift cards in itself are not the most exciting gift, so I thought I'd make the packaging a bit more special. I used Provo Crafts Crown Rosette Quilling die using blue polka dot paper and sheet music. I cut a small snowflake using the Winter Lace cartridge. I adhered the pieces together and added a doily to the top of the sack. To keep it closed, I tied pretty vintage lace and glued the rosette to that. This way it easily slips off without ruining the package. I added a few swipes of white paint, glossy accents, and glitter to the edges of the bag as a finishing touch.


I have to admit that I haven't crafted in a few days, and it is a bit difficult trying to get back into the groove of things! I better get back on the saddle quick with CHA right around the corner! ; )

Very pretty---and--one of the few gifts I got that was well, we won't go there-was a gift card to a craft store! That or a "generic" gift card (visa) that can be used anywhere---is FAR BETTER than stuff that one won't/can't use or just collects dust. I have so many allergies-people insist on giving me lotions, soaps, etc-that I can't use...Disappointing. So-gift card-you go, girl! Blessings, Sharon

Lovely rosette flower. Needless to say, I had to have that quilling die along with the other new one. Love your snowman card too.
