Quickie Mini Monday -- Flower Gift Note Card

Quickie Mini Mondays feature a 10 minute-or-less project -- something fast, fun and easy to reproduce and mass produce.

Hi everyone,

Whenever I need to do a quick project, I always reach for my dies and punches. It saves time on measuring and cutting. That's exactly what I did here:

Using the Flower Folds Bigz XL Die for the Big Shot, I cut through leftover Tall Tales DSP. This gift note card is fun and serves two purposes -- 1) it decorates the gift bag and 2) it allows the gift giver to write a note to the recipient.

Since the die has folds in the center of each flower, I folded up the center flower for dimension. I punched out a 1 3/8" circle out of Rose Red CS, stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes on Whisper White CS and punched it out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. The top of the gift note card is punched out with the Crop-a-Dile where I wrapped a piece of Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon through and around the bag handles.

I encourage you to play with your punches to save on time. Have a nice stampin' day! CeeCee

(Sadly, I can't seem to leave any comment on your personal blog. I write my name and e-mail address, complete my message, but nothing appears on the blog. I don't know what I am doing wrong. It's happened to me a couple of times, on different days... Maybe you can help!)
