4 Days and Counting

You still have a few more days til Mother's Day...are you ready? If not...maybe this will help:

A cute way to wrap up a little gift for mom!! Here's the how to:

Start by cutting out your colored image and gluing it onto a punched shape. Use a 1/16" hole punch at each spot where you want to place a flower (punch 2 holes for flowers that will have more than 1 bead in the center). Thread a needle and tape the end of the thread to the back of the heart. Place the heart into the bag and insert needle through one of the punched holes...then through the bag, flower, bead...then back down again. For flowers with more than 1 bead...always come up through one punched hole and down through the other. See picture below:

When you're done...tape the end of the string to the back of the heart. Punch one more heart and glue it to the back of the first heart to cover all your strings and tape. The trickiest part of this project is trying to work in the limited space inside the bag!!! I was happy with the way it turned out, so I decided to make a matching card:

If you change the sentiment, you now have a baby card:

Stamps used: #A116 (Baby Girl), #A144 (Mother's Day) and #C140 (A Mother's Love).

Have a great day...and Happy Boy's Day to all the little guys out there!!!
