Monday, Monday…I’ve gotten to LOVE Mondays! Even if the kids are out of school for summer. 😉 I love creating designs for the Challenge Chicks Monday challenge and this week I’m really excited about it…a going green recycling challenge.
One of my favorite things, besides chocolate of course (that was LAST Monday), is my morning French Vanilla. It comes in these fabulous little tins from Maxwell House if you are in Canada. I think the name may be General Foods in the US but I may be wrong. These tins are perfect for recycling into lovely little gift tins with some paper and a strong adhesive.
This little tin was designed for my daughter to give a gift in. A gift card, necklace, chocolates… they all fit really well inside. The patterned paper is from the Jolies Chocolats line by SEI. I just adore this pre-glittered paper. It just screams girl. Around the edges of the lid I adhered some Creative Impressions velvet ribbon. My pretty Primas are embellished with pink rhinestones.
The tag is the only part of this design with stamping on it. Sometimes that happens. Sometimes simple is best on a project. Don’t try and add more if it really doesn’t need it. My sentiment is from the Motivational Centers set by Cornish Heritage Farms.
I hope you’ll join us and play along in this weeks challenge! You can check out the details here. Also check out what some of our other designers have created… Kim, Lisa Silver, Kristine, Dawn, Lesley & Val. I know you’ll love their projects!
Have a wonderful start to your week!
