12 Days of Blogging #10

Day 10, are you convinced yet that these are great? Of course you could just fill them with sweets or sunflower seeds, or create a gumball machine, baby's rattle or magnifying glass with the co-ordinating stamp set (Something Sweet), but why not explore some more...

This card uese less than half a pack of hair bobbles picked up from a pound shop, which girl, young or old with longer hair wouldn't appreciate this small well thought out gift? Nautical, with a splash of red is in fashion this season.

This card uses papers from the 6"x6" Patterns Paper Designer Series Paper III, available as a Hostess Level 1 gift, see day 6 for more information on how you can receive this gift for free (subject to sales). A patterned paper sliding door was created, so that when the hair bands are removed there is still interest on the card. The real red flower is taken from the Blooms Die Cuts pack. (There's Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue too.)


I would recommend the Sweet Treat Padded envelopes, which are printed with a pattern of dots, very sweet, with clear areas left for the stamp and address. Providing that your card does not weigh over 720 grammes then you will only need a Large Letter Stamp to cover postage, just a little extra to show someone you care? Bargain I'd say.

Inspired? PLease come back tomorrow, only 2 days left to go!
