every day is a gift.

Birch trees

A little homemade gift, done birch tree style, and courtesy of Clear and Simple stamps.

Birch trees

I rubbed distress ink over the negative space between the birch trees for a bit of a different look.

A matching box (our new party favor 7) houses some diy embellishments - some chunky leaves and buttons, and a tissue-paper flower (from the "build-a-flower" dies).  All adhered with a glue dot to an acetate layer, so the recipient could peel and use on their own projects.  It's all about spreading the love of paper-crafting!

  6. Just FYI - When you make your photos private they are unpinnable. Just thought you should know. I do follow you on Pinterest as well. :)

    1. eeep - I usually upload the pics to flickr way earlier than when I publish my blogpost... so I usually upload them "private" and then change them after my post goes live. But I guess I'm not always on top of things - thanks for the head's up, and for wanting to Pin my stuff! you're so sweet!
