Botanical Blooms Gifts

I wrapped some little gifts for a few friends that I knew I’d be hanging with at On Stage Convention.  Inside the envelopes are little sewing kits (I can’t believe I didn’t take a photo!), decorated with the same flower in reverse colors since the case of the sewing kits were Tangelo Twist!

  • To start, I measured the little case of the sewing kit, then found the size on the Envelope Punch Board that would hold them.  I cut the Botanical Gardens Designer Paper according to that size.
  • The Botanical Builder flowers were cut from Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey and the centers with Basic Black.  The leaves were stamped with Mossy Meadow on Pear Pizzazz and cut with the Framelits also.
  • They were adhered together then placed on the 2″ Circle of coordinating Designer Paper.
  • A Rhinestone Jewel was added to the center.
  • A 1-1/4 x 8-1/2 strip of Whisper White belly band wraps around the Envelope to hold it closed and the circle with flower added to hide the seam on top.

On the back, I stamped For You from Birthday Blooms stamp set with Tuxedo Black Ink.

I think it made a simple and sweet little gift for my friends…and something they could use in their purse for emergencies!  I wish I would have kept one for myself!

EDIT:  Because I’m getting questions, here is what the sewing kits look like…except mine were orange.  I found them at Michael’s a while ago.
