Ben Franklin Make 'n Take


Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Ben Franklin Make 'n Take today!! We did a simple sachet project that I'd like to share with you:



The theme was "Pretty in Pink" to benefit the American Cancer Society...so, I made these little sachets using 2" x 2" glassine envelopes (filled with pink scented "beads"). I looped an 8" piece of pink ribbon and put some double stick tape on the back of the ribbon to hold it in place on the envelope until I could staple it down. Then I used stamp #3018 (Ribbon) along with various animal stamps. To make it look like the animal is holding the ribbon...simply stamp the ribbon stamp in pink, put a mask over it, then stamp the animal with it's hand over the masked ribbon. I punched the stamped image out with a Marvy (yellow) scalloped oval punch and glued it on a heart (punched with a blue Marvy heart punch). Mount the heart on the sachet with a pop dot. Of course, you can always adapt this idea for any occasion...like Valentine's Day:



wedding showers:



or any occasion, really! Hope you have time to stamp this weekend!!!
