Create It Wednesday~Gift For You

I'm up on the Precious Remembrance Shop Blog today with a simple packaging project.  Lots of gift giving occasions coming up including Mother's Day & graduation, but it's also fun to surprise someone when they least expect it. 
I began by making a tag using the partial die cutting technique with a circle die to fit a Mini White Doily.  After Attaching the doily, I stamped the rest of my tag with the splatters from the Positive Thoughts stamp set using a Memento New Sprout marker.  A scrap of light green cardstock was die cut with a PPP Borders 3 die & I attached it to cover where the doily was cut in half.  It was easy to add the yellow & green hand dyed buttons using strong liquid glue.  I stamped the letters I needed from the Sketchy Alphabet stamp set onto more of the cardstock using black ink.  Thankfully I still have a bunch of punches, including a circle one that was just the right size for the letters.  I colored them with the green marker & added Stickles for some fun sparkle. 
There was enough of the cardstock to cut 3 thin strips for the bottom of the tag and I finished off with a twine bow.  Before attaching the tag, I stamped a few solid  & open hearts from the Love Coupon and Happy Art stamp sets.  There are lots of great products in the PRS Store & I hope you'll check them out.  
You can keep up with products and happenings by following PRS on Facebook,PinterestInstagram & Youtube.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
