Last night I stayed up waaaaay longer than I should have, but I got so engrossed with a Gift I am busy with for a friend of mine, that I decided to make some goodies based on what I was doing for my Etsy shop.
It is a Friendship set. The idea is that you have all the packagery (that SHOULD be a word!) you would need to make a little gift for a friend. There is fabric, paper, vintage music paper(one of the best finds!) tags, brown paper bags, trim etc etc. You could make a card, another tag and some pretty fabric embellishments to give to her. Or you could just use all the supplies as the pretty packaging you wrap her gift in. Either way....
One of the already made ideas is a little brown paper bag with a paper doily and butterfly negative sewn onto it, with a ticket stamped with "to and From" slotted into the negative. The sides of the envelope then stitched by machine.
another already done thing are two sweet, tiny tags with butterflies stitched on.
And an already made friendship tag complete with stamped "Cherished Friend", fabric ribbon, and stringed button.
Another idea is simply to use it for card making or scrap booking. There really are a lot of possibilities.
Here I made a tag from the goodies in the set and pasted it onto a card.
The paper is made from the 6x6 paper included in the set, and ribbon trim. I used the fabric to made a little embellishment and paper flower with a button center.By the way did you see my new easy-to-locate pages at the top of my blog? This is to make things a bit easier when searching for my digital kits, craft and tutorials which I will be continuously adding to. Is there a particular stand-alone page you would like to see listed at the top?
Anyhooo....here are two more vintage postcards from you.
You can see more of them here and here.
Isn't this baby so sweet??
Please check back tomorrow and next week, I still have about 9 postcards.
