Last month I attended a gathering of fellow Stampin’ Up! Demo’s for a “INKling” team dinner, It was a great night meeting other people who love Papercraft and Stampin’ Up! as much as me. I made this cute little chest for my upline and talented stamper Jayne, As a thank you for her support. I just LOVE off the page projects, They are so much fun to make and even more fun to give away as gifts.
I used Stampin’ Up! Brocade Background printed paper on this chest, I also covered two pieces of Chipboard to make tags and using the word image from Natural Beauty to stamp “believe” and “inspire” on tags, I thought they were fitting words for Jayne. I added a little Chocolate ribbon, and a flower from my stash of non SU! embellishments. I think presentation is a very important part of gift giving… so I covered a paper bag with strips of Brocade paper.
The finishing touch was making a tag, I covered a chipboard tag with Brocade paper and stamped the ‘flourish’ from Baroque Motifs over the tag and ‘thanks’ from Much Appreciated at the bottom. “Jayne” was stamped using my favourite alphabet set ‘Jumbo Outline’ with Crystal effects over the top. I added a flower from the Pretties kit with a pearl centre.
