A Little Something...


Remember I told you yesterday how my card came out on the first try? Well, today it was totally the opposite!! Between errands and other work, I've been fidgeting with this all day long...it started out as a card...then turned into a favor...and now it's something else completely!!!
I'm not exactly sure what it is...it's kind of like a card, but kind of like a gift. Take a look and you decide:


I have 3 little plastic bags filled with bling, brads and tags. Each bag is topped with a scalloped oval punch (folded lengthwise) and double-stick taped onto the bag. The "envelope" was made with a piece of vellum which I loosely wrapped around the card (the seam is in the back) , then I folded the bottom up (the back seam and the bottom were secured with double-stick tape).

Now that I made it, I don't know what to do with it!! If anyone would like to receive a "little something" in the mail...post a comment by the end of tomorrow, August 13 (Hawaii time). I'll pick one winner at random and announce their name on Thursday, August 14. Good Luck!!

What a darling "gift card." It would make a nice little gift to someone who is in a creative slump and needs a little pick-me-up. Or fill the baggies up with little candies to "sweeten" someone's day. How about little baggies of vitamin C, aspirin, etc. for someone going on a trip. This card has so many possibilities. Thanks again for another great design.

This is sooo nice and clever! I like how you use the flower with the scallop topper. I can't wait to get the "Little Something" stamp. This would be great to stick in monetary gift cards.

Oh! I would love to get this goody in the mail. I think it's a goody bag. The kind of goody bag that stampers/scrappers would love! It's the perfect favor for a stamping party guest to take home with them.
