Strength, Cure, Hope!

Just a quick post for you today, of a project that I have put together for a workshop that I have coming up this week, the group will be making this card and gift box and selling them on at a church event to raise money for breast cancer.

The template I used for the bag was a template that I picked up from a craft magazine, I have decorated the bag inside and out, and added a small velcro piece to easily open and shut - the stamps are Magnolia's 'Tilda with rose' and the circle sentiment stamp is also from Magmolia. The papers are a digi download from Raspberry Road Designs called 'Alive & Kicking' - perfect for obvious reasons. I made one of my paper roses from the same papers and have also added a bottle top embelishment to the gift bag which has been squashed with the wizard machine and then coloured with alcohol inks, the small bead on the card was also coloured with alcohol inks to match.

I will let you know how they turned out and how much the ladies managed to raise.

Maria, these are wonderful. I'm sure the ladies will be really pleased with them and if they all come out as good as yours they should be able to make a nice bit of money for a very worthwhile cause.
Good luck with the workshop.

Hi Maria - lovely work as always! What is the key to squishing bottletops with the Wizard? When I've tried it, it cut through the tan mat and I've not had the courage to try it again.
