End of a Crafty Weekend

Happy Sunday All,

    Finished my last crafting project for this weekend and feeling that I have moved up a step on my list of gifts to make.

    This gift is for my brother's GF whose birthday is today.  She loves embroidered towels and what better gift to give her. 

 I used the Victorian Scroll Tarapunto Alpha design from Embroidery Library for the bath towel and fingertip towel.  For the washcloth I used the Confetti Alpha, which requires color change, but I opted for one color.

Of course, I had to make a gift box for it and instead of going with the templates I have from SVGCuts.com this time around, I used a box that I scavangered from work. The boxes that office supplies come in make great templates for making gifts boxes and the one I used was a Smead supply box.


I used  Luxe Pashmina 2-sided cardstock and with my trusty hot glue gun... became this



The cute ribbon is from a co-worker, she receives gifts often and graciously gives me her gift boxes and/or ribbons.

That's All Folks... have a Great Sunday.
