A thank you gift





t





Remember my secret Santa? She was so very good to me. Even though we were only to spend no more than $4 each day and $20 on the last day, the gift card to Michael's alone was $25.00 and there were 4 or 5 other gifts so I decided to make her a little gift as my thanks. She is a real sweetheart too so it is easy to do.

Besides, I had this little tin sitting there on my scrap desk just begging to be filled and covered. I made 8 little circle cards. No real pattern in mind, just what came to me while I was sitting there. There are a few I really like and others - well, not so much. The only part of the tin I couldn't cover with paper is where the lid closes over the tin. Ya know what - "Oh well!" You can't see it until you open the lid and then you see the cards and don't even notice that other thing - grins - .

To make the circles I used my Nesties, made two complete circles, I scored the back one at a half inch and glued just that part to the front.
I used my Grace paper pack, my new Topstitch paper pack, Perfect Day, & Bella paper packs. Lots of sparkles, at least on some.
Thanks for tuning in.

  3. What a thoughtful gift! I like the way the tin shows below the ribbon--a cool effect, I think! The cards are gorgeous too! What size are your circles? (I've been using an old CM circle cutter template and just move it slightly onto the fold before cutting, so I haven't had to adhere anything...) Did you find any praline flavoring?

  10. Honestly, this is one seriously amazing project. I'm totally impressed! Where I would have just thrown in some candy (because it is a tin! LOL), you made round, individually unique and beautifully made cards for it. I'm so impressed! Best, Curt
