Too much fudge is never enough…

One of my daughter’s friends was just about to celebrate a milestone birthday.  Sally is allergic to cocoa butter and so can not have a lot of the chocolate that is available in the shops.  We have worked out the cooking chocolate that we can use in my fudge recipe that you can find here.  I worked out a gift that I could make for her with some special touches from my daughter.

We started with this split ring…

And then I made a series of numbered tags, one for each year, each tag had a punch on the back with sweet sentiments about their friendship.

As you can see they are a collection of different themes and ideas, current and retired products.

This cute little cat was made with the Fox Builder Punch.

Once all the tags were made I added them to 18 bags of fudge…

The idea is that once the fudge is all gone the tags can be threaded onto the split ring as a book of love.

Here’s the card that Tegan had to go along with the gift…

And yes…Sally loved it.

 

 

Say it with flowers!

A friend of mine recently treated herself to a new craft desk (here’s the desk she chose, isn’t it lovely!)

I wanted to make her a little something to celebrate having a beautiful new place to craft, I hope you get the idea, it did look a look better in real life.

The little vase was from IKEA.  The ribbon is the chevron one we had that has since retired.  The paper is the Designer Series Paper called “Typeset” which is also retired.  I absolutely loved these flower dies from the Bouquet Bigz Die (you guessed it also retired).  I added some butterflies (cut with the thinlits in the product list).  Everything is either glued onto florist wire or skewer sticks.  The little tag has been stamped and heat set with white embossing powder.

I recently ran a class with these beautiful flowers….

The bag was just a simple one from a discount store, it doesn’t take much to make it really pop.  Hot glue is your friend when putting together these flowers.  You will find a silicone mat makes it so much easier too.  This video really helped me.

If you have any questions please let me know!
