Hope you are having a fabulous start to your week. I was able to squeeze some time for crafting into my weekend so have a sneak of a fabulous project to share with you! I'm in a swap and have been working on my swap packages. One of the thinks I like to do is package my swap items like the recipient is getting a gift. Don't we all like to open pretty packages!? I know I do!
Today's post focuses on the Papertrey Ink February blog hop. This months hop challenge was to use monogramming in your project. I wasn't sure what to do as I didn't have a stamp set. But this morning chatting with my husband I was telling him how would love personalize ribbon tags for my craft projects, but I have no idea where to get them or what design I would want. Then I thought I have a wonderful sewing machine that maybe I can come up with something for myself. So I set out to embroider my very own monogrammed ribbon! And the best part is I actually was able to easily monogram the ribbon to match my project. I need to play with my new sewing machine more because I'm sure it will do some fabulous sewing.
This is a sneak peek of one of the swap projects I'm working on. I wanted you to see how the gift packaging coordinates perfectly with the project. And I just love the cluster of die cut flowers and butterflies! I think I squealed when this project came together so perfectly! I'll show you more on that later....
This is the tag I created for the packaging using PTI Homemade Hodgepodge stamp set and Hawaiian Shores ink. The flower is die cut with PTI felt and flower die.
I used a craft store bag and tied with matching bakers twine and added my handmade, hand monogrammed tag! Love it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
