Something to Say with Flowering Flourishes

I honestly sat down to my very messy desk and couldn’t think of what to do.  There are many reasons to stay organized, and that is one of them.  I looked to my paper for inspiration, as I usually do when I get stumped.  But I haven’t purchased any of the new paper yet, so that threw me another loop.  I really had to look for a little extra creativity, so I kept looking.  The foil velum carried over and I had some of that.  For the win!

I started out with the idea of making a purse style gift bag, but thought it was looking to be too bulky and wide.  So, I cut it in half and went for two of these little beauties.  I stamped my wisteria wonder card stock with the medium stamp from flowering flourishes to go under the velum.  I love the soft layering it gives.

I used a whole 12 x 12 sheet of velum to start with.  When I trimmed it to match the 8.5 x 11 I had a nice strip left over.  I cut that in two and made two mini envelopes for the tiny gift cards.  The cards are large enough for a tiny note and also house a gift card.  Nice, right?

I plan on putting a couple of gourmet cookies in a cellophane bag to tuck inside the gift bags.  It should make a lovely set.

Have a creative day!
