First, let's take a quick look at the project and then I'll tell you all about the giveaway!!
This was so much fun to put together! On the front of the card I featured The Twinery's Cappuccino and paper and tags by Nikki Sivils' new Messages Collection Pack!
If you have been to my blog before, I am sure you are familiar with the wonderful baker's twine from The Twinery!
Up for grabs from the Twinery, just for commenting on the blogs in the hop, you could win this colorful sampler!
I was pleased to get to play with product for the very first time from Nikki Sivils! Be sure to check out her products and her blog for lots of fun products and inspiration!
Just by commenting, you can win your choice of one of four crafting kits from Nikki Silvis!
I chose to work with a fun and super cool color-combination collection pack from Nikki's collection called Messages. I loved that the paper from this pack was so unique!
I made a little file folder from Kraft cardstock and decorated the front with various tags that are included with the pack!! Talk about easy and quick decorating when you have everything you need right there! I used The Twinery's Cappuccino twine and a wood button to make a closure for the file folder. The button is adhered to the card and the twine just slips down so that the file folder can be opened revealing a surprise inside!
Here is what you will find inside! If you are a crafter, than you know how much fun it is to received RAK's (Random Acts of Kindness) from other crafters...especially when you aren't expecting it! So that was my goal for this card!
On the left page there is a little note card that is included with the kit (ACTUALLY there is a whole page of fun notecards that you can choose from in this kit! This is only one!). I left the bottom space blank to write a note to the recipient.
And the right hand page, which was SO fun to make, features a card that I die cut from ledger paper included in the set. I adhered that to a thin chipboard piece, also die cut to the card shape, to add stability to the cardstock so I could easily wrap my twine later. Then, I took my crop-a-dile and notched five 1/2 circles in each side of the card so that the twine wouldn't slip off the card, especially in the mail. I wrapped my twine (I used 5 fabulous colors: Lemondrop, Flax, Honeydew, Buttercream & Cappuccino) and tied a loose knot on the backside of the card. I also attached a tag from the kit on the front. I attached the card to the card base with thick pop dots so it can easily be removed. Wouldn't that be a fun gift to receive in the mail!
