Bookmark & Matching Gift BoxBy
I promised to show you the WOW project my guests will be making at my Christmas card class tomorrow – here it is!
It’s a magnetic ribbon bookmark with matching gift box – if you choose to actually give it away!
I really liked the bookmark my mother-in-law had with her this summer when they came to visit and be here for Mikasa’s wedding. I studied it, duplicated it and now am sharing this little gem at my card class tomorrow.
I used the absolutely gorgeous Real Red satin ribbon, some magnetic stripping, a stamp from the Perfect Punches set and a touch of Crystal Effects and glitter.
To make the box a wonderfully easy but glamorous gift, I used the matchbox die for the Big Shot and the sparkly paper from the Candy Cane Christmas DSP pack found in the Holiday Mini Catalogue. I had no idea how sparkly this paper was when I ordered it – it was a wonderful surprise to me!! This paper reminds me of Dorothy’s ruby red slippers! I also used a stamp from Tags til Christmas to give that little box a label. Colors are Baja Breeze and Real Red.
Okay, I have to go clean up my house now for tomorrow’s big class! Cleaning will also include trying to rid my house of the nasty scorched smell I just made by charing a few pecan pie tarts in the oven – so NOT cool today!!
Off to light a few dozen candles now…
