This is a quick and easy project! On one side you can put a little treat such as candy or a gift card (I’m partial to iTunes gift cards) and on the other, a little note. There’s no adhesive required to assemble the holder. I chose to use some ribbon and a brad to hold it together but you could just use a brad. Using a 12 x 1 1/4 inch strip of DSP and another piece measuring 6 x 1 1/4 you can make the cute rosette. I simply used my Simply Scored and made scores at every 1/2 inch. Then I attached my two pieces together and folded it accordion style. While holding this piece, use your hot glue gun and spread some glue on the top part and immediately place it on the NEW Silicon Sheet (in the Holiday Catalog). Wait at least ten seconds and your glue and rosette will peel off the sheet. It is so cool!! Now shape it into a rosette and glue your ends together. If this is totally confusing, let me know and I can take some pictures.
I am very determined to start filming videos. Last night I did a tutorial (nothing that I would post as it was a practice one) and spent hours figuring out how to edit it. I think I’ve finally got the hang of it to at least make a video. So, I hope to get one made soon.
We are still on “baby alert” waiting for our granddaughter to be born. The excitement I feel is just so hard to keep inside – a new little person in our family! I feel so blessed that this is the year I decided to retire from teaching. I can take off at a moments notice to spend time with my granddaughter. I’m sure once she is born I will have some cute pictures to share!
