Thank you gift!

  Hello!  How was your Thanksgiving?  Hope it was wonderful!  Ours was and we are lucky enough to be doing it all over again tonight with the other half of the family! :)  I just love Thanksgiving!

   I have a little thank you project to share with you today!  I needed to make a hostess gift and wanted it to be a little different so I pulled out a bunch of punches and got busy!  I started making flowers, and making flowers and making flowers!  I may have in fact gotten a little carried away!  I made quite a few of those little guys!  Take a look:
I needed a container of some sort to hold some thank you chocolate!  

I used the Scallop Circle punch, several other circle punches and the Daisy Big Shot die.

Glitter butterfly with thank you sentiment punched with the Jewelry Tag punch.  I added a rhinestone as if the butterfly wasn't shimmery enough!

Flowers close up.

I had a hard time photographing this without the proportions looking off.  Also, I thought it  wound up looking a little like a pair of suspenders, but I knew it would need two handles!  Chocolate goodness is heavy! 

Well, I guess since Thanksgiving is (mostly!) over it is time to start thinking about Christmas!!  Time for sleigh bells and mistletoes!

I am off!  Lots to do before our second Thanksgiving tonight!  Have a wonderful day and I will see you tomorrow!

Love, love, love those flowers!!!. I'm always looking for flowers techniques. This ones look awesome. Did you just used the scallop punch and then wrinkled them?, great job!!!
