3x3 Notecard Set
When Melanie posted that adorable little "treat bag tote" on her blog, I KNEW I had to make one! Instead of putting candy in it, however, I decided to make it a tote for 3x3 notecards. I just added little "straps" of cardstock on the insides of the tote so that the notecards wouldn't slide out. I paper pieced Sophia's dress with the same paper as the tote so that everything coordinates. If you notice, the butterfly is in a different spot than it has been in past posts. Well, the Sophia stamp was too tall for the 3x3 card so I had to improvise. I inked up everything but the butterfly and stamped it on the card. I then stamped the butterfly on another piece of cardstock, colored it and cut it out. I mounted it with a dimensional on the 3x3 card and paper pierced a "flight trail" from Sophia's hand to where the butterfly is. I think it worked out pretty well. On the tote, I added some Island Blossom Dew Drops, rose organdy ribbon and an oval piece that says "For You". I thought the oval piece looked like a purse that I have where the brand name is stitched on like that. Remember that tonight at 8pm EST is the Prettie Pajama Party over at Paper Pretties! (and don't forget to change all of your clocks ahead if you didn't already) Hope to see you there tonight! Have a wonderful day!
