It’s Suzanne here today with such a cute little gift
idea! I “felt” like creating with the Gable
Box. So you know those times when you
make these purchases and think “I’ll make this with that!” and then you forget
what you were going to do? Well, this
project almost became one of those!
I think these little boxes made from felt make the cutest little warm-fuzzy ornament – or I suppose they could be a pin cushion! The supplies are super inexpensive so you can make a whole herd of them. They don’t have to be stitched, but I think it adds a nice little bit of colour and decoration. You could have a lot of fun by using different stitches.
Here is how you can make them….
Photo Cards by Judi Kauffman
The newest dies in Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection, like all of the others that came before them, make me so happy! A single word can express so much.
I started with ‘Because’ for my project. With that word on the front, all that’s needed is the rest of the thought on the inside of the card: Because…you are my friend, Because…I know you’re going through a tough time, Because…you’re my favorite teacher! You get the idea.
Our friend Guy grows the most amazing plumeria plants at his place in Florida, some of them reach almost to the roof. He frequently shares his photos because he knows how much I love flowers and he said I could use them for some cards any time I want. (You guessed it: ‘Because you are my friend’ will be heading his way!)
Photo cards are so easy and you know my mantra: Easy Isn’t Cheating! If you don’t have a color printer, head to the nearest store with a self-service machine in their photo department. I’ve made photo prints at a drug store open on Thanksgiving Day and in a grocery store in California! And what a bargain.
Here’s the recipe:
