Excited Erin here today! Why? Because I am guest designing for one of my FAVORITE fellow crafters, Miss Emma Aguilar from My Creative Time!
Emma and I go waaaaaaay back to the very beginning of my crafting days and I just love her to pieces! She is so creative and has such a huge heart. Did I happen to mention she has a FABULOUS line of stamps and dies available? When she released her gift card die, I knew I just HAD to have it. What a perfect addition to any crafter’s stash. It’s so easy to use and perfect for last minute holiday or birthday gifts. Grab a piece of cardstock, run it through your Cuttlebug or Big Shot and DONE!
For my project today, I wanted to make something unique to show you the versatility this die has. I created this baby flower headband for a gift (using one of my Sugar Monkey flowers as a clip that attaches to a stretchy headband). I wrapped the headband around a gift card size piece of cardstock for the inside. Then, I used a combination of Emma’s stamp sets Paper Princess and You’re My Best Buddy (by using the tape method: tape words you don’t want off, ink, remove tape then stamp!) and other embellies for the front.
Since the flower clip would make the inside too bulky, I simply clipped the detachable flower to the front of the gift card holder after I pushed the front under the tab and VOILA! Easy instant gift for a baby girl. Isn’t it sweet and just so super girly fabulous?
I just love making these flowers – I wanted to make them for fellow crafters who could use them as scrapbooking or card embellies and also for non-crafters as barrette clips or headbands. I think flowers are my calling! 🙂 You can find my flowers in my Store or on Etsy.
A HUGE thank you to Emma for letting me showcase her fabulous stamp sets and beautiful gift card die. I can see this die getting a BIG workout in my craft room during the upcoming holiday months!
Have a GREAT day everyone and thanks for visiting me at Erin Lee Creative!
