On Friday I went to a meeting of the Silhouette Israel facebook group. It was great and I had fun meeting all of the girls and learning who is behind some of the blogs I often read.
I prepared a little thank you gift for the two organizers of this event.
I thought about making something with the Silhouette but I ended spilling coffee on my laptop and so my Silhouette didn't work the two days prior to event.
I decided to make a hand made notes notebook using the the Penelope's Blossoms stamp set by Lawn Fawn.
I cut the different papers from a printer paper, so it will be light weight papers. I stamped every 10 of them in a different color and the top page I decorated with the individual flowers from the set.
The wording is "Notes" in Hebrew.
I then glued the top of the papers to the backing and left alone for a few hours to dry.
Here is a closer look at the top. I used the 3M quick dry white glue.
Here is the final product, it turned out really nice, I sure hope the recipients liked it.
This is how I wrapped it, with a tissue paper and a nice thank you tag.
Lately I am seeing so many designs using the Prima paper doll, and they are so sweet. I had to try it out myself. I am waiting for the latest doll design to be sold in Israel, but in the mean time I found this doll in a store next to my house and used it.
It's a tag for a sweet 10 years old girl, who really loved it.
The doll is quite large, and a standard card is not enough for it, so I made a tag.
I colored the face, legs and hair with copics, and used paper piecing for the rest.
I had to make two thank you cards for the morning and it was already 12:30am so you can imagine I had to find something that will be quick and easy.
Here comes my trusty silhouette to the rescue. I wrote the word Thanks (in Hebrew) and cut a cover card, I added a border with gold sketch pen and mount all that on a yellow polkadot page from lawn fawn.
That's it. 20 minutes and I had two thank you cards.
