Hostess Gifts, I always give the hostess of my home workshops a gift to say thank you for inviting to their home. It is always a homemade and uses some of our wonderful Stampin’ Up! products.
To start with I have used a shopping notepad, measured the width and added 1/2″ and the length to which I added 3″ I then cut out a piece of card stock to those measurements. Using strong adhesive I stuck the back of the notepad down onto the card stock allowing a 1/4″ border to the bottom and sides, the extra was folded over the top and then decorated as detailed below.
I’ve used double sided paper to highlight, the ribbon is a design touch by my daughter which actually serves an important purpose, it holds the top flap down, because our card stock and paper is such good quality and heavy it kept lifting up, so thank you Kimberley.
Rose Red card stock with a 2″ strip of Rose Red double sided paper attached to the card stock and folded over the front of the notepad. A Chocolate Chip scallop punch topped with a Rose Red Circle and a Soft Subtles button tied with linen thread. White grosgrain ribbon.
Certainly Celery Card stock with a 2″ strip of Certainly Celery double sided paper attached to the card stock and folded over the front of the notepad. A So Saffron scallop punch topped with a Certainly Celery circle and another Soft Subtles button tied with linen thread. Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon.
Bashful Blue card stock with a 2″ strip of Cutie Pie double sided paper as before. The Elephant is from the Year after Year stamp set, stamped in Black Stazon and cut out attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals and finished with Blue gingham ribbon.
Pretty in Pink card stock, the Snail is from Unfrogettable and stamped twice once onto Pretty in Pink and once onto a scrap of Rose Red double sided paper. I cut out the snail shell and mounted it onto the top of the snail with a Stampin’ Dimensional, I made the eye pop with some PVA glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter, finished with Black gingham ribbon.
