If you are looking for some last minute ideas for that perfect gift, something homeade and from the heart, well then you have come to the right blog! I am featuring two projects for the Fotobella Design Team made with Bo Bunny's Serenade Collection that would make great gifts. This collection can be found at Fotobella.com and you can get the complete collection by selecting the "I Want It All" Bundle.
My first project is a beautiful bookmark, perfect for those avid readers I know!
I really loved this quote so I chose to place it at the top of the bookmark.I wanted to place the quote sticker without interfering with the beautiful dragonfly. I did that by cutting along the body of the dragon fly and the top edge of the wing on the right side with anXacto knife. Then I slipped the 2 bottom corners of the sticker behind the slits. I embellished it with gold stickles along the edge and a chipboard flower sticker. I added a yellow rhinestone to the center of the flower.
I love the earthy colors of this paper but I did want to add a little bling to it…I couldn’t help it! So I used green stickles along the edges of the winds and embellished the body of the dragonfly with Icicles Stickles to give it some shine. It worked perfectly.Just enough sparkle.
My second project is a Recipe Mini Album. Besides scrapbooking all the time, I also enjoy cooking and baking. I often receive requests for my recipes…and to be honest, I’m terrible at sharing them! I thought I could create this mini album and tuck a few of my most requested recipes and gift it to those who are always asking for them J
One of the sticker sheets in this bundle is all a cooking theme, which was perfect for this recipe book. For the cover I combined stickers, flowers, brads, chipboard sitkcers, rhinestones, trinkets and ribbon.
I made every page a different shape by experimenting with my Lucky 8 punches (also found at Fotobella.com)
Hope this inspires you to make some creative handmade and heartfelt gifts of your own this holiday season!
