Hi everyone! How is your week going? Did you have a nice Easter? What's happening?! I got a fun and cool pink ombre manicure yesterday (very snazzy!) and the sun is shining. I'm in a good mood! Today I get to go to the Hero Arts HQ and meet up with my lovely friend Libby! YAY! She is in California, visiting from the East Coast and last time she was here we didn't manage to connect. Really looking forward to seeing her face and giving her a big ol hug. I will try to sneak in some behind the scenes photos on my Instagram page too! I hope you are having a great week and hope you are getting crafty!
I am continuing with my obsession with felties today! I took a very brief break to make some cards (LOL) and now I'm back with a pretty pink Tulip Plush project. I had a birthday gift wrapped for a friend and the wrapping paper (an old release from Hazel & Ruby) has little pink tulips in it. The idea hit me to make a matching tulip tie on for the package to jazz it up a bit. I love how it came out. It's fun to be a crafty girl - cuz we can personalize anything - just like MacGyver!
I wrapped the present and tied a pretty, light green sheer ribbon in a bow in the center. Then I stamped Happy Birthday onto a flag stax and attached that to the box with some foam tape. The tulip feltie is attached with a piece of thread I tied around the ribbon bow. I used thread so it would be easy to get it off the package.
For the tulip, I used two shades of soft pink felt. The die comes with a separate piece to make the center petal and I made that one just a bit darker. For the leaves I used green felt and green embroidery thread.
I really like this font! The SSS Exclusive stamp set is called Friendship Messages. I stamped it in Intense Black Ink (all supplies are below)
I think this would also be a fun idea for Mother's Day! Or, instead of tying the feltie onto a box/present, you could hang it from a gift bag with some pretty twine. I am thinking of more ideas again! Stay tuned! Have an awesome day, and thank you for coming by my blog. XOXO
