Gift challenges...

I'm calling this post as such because these are gifts I gave Saturday evening for a family friend.


Truly Scrumptious
sketch #10 is terrific it also has the twist of using up stuff you forgot you had, I took this as an opportunity to go back into the abyss and use scraps, my goal is to longer have a scrap bag...



The Secret Saturday Crafter Challenge blog wants pretty packaging. I made some sour cherry jam on Friday and it is so good! I felt I could part with a jar as a gift but I didn't just want to give her a jar. I placed the jam in a cellophane bag cut some strips of Tulip card stock and stamped and cut out some floral images and placed these in the bag to dress it up. I labeled the bag with the contents using the same patterned paper as the above card to tie it all together.

Great card! Did you use a punch for the flowers or did you cut all the leaves? And I love the way you wrapped your jam :-)
