Delicate Dots Hostess Gifts

We are getting new wood flooring installed today. I'm so glad this will finally be done as we have had our house torn apart for too long...over two weeks! It took longer than anticipated for the flooring to come in, and we had the old carpet torn up, furniture moved etc...It should be all done tomorrow! Today I'm kind of hanging in my computer room so I'm out of the way, but handy if the installer has any questions. So I thought I'd share a couple projects and then check out some of my fav blogs.

With the help of my Big Shot I decorated these clip boards as hostess gifts for my March hostesses. I used the Delicate Dots paper and the So Saffron grosgrain - both available as FREE selections during SAB, to decorate these clipboards. The Beautiful Butterfly is a Bigz die, so it allows you to cut through all sorts of material - including the cork board shown here. The base layer of the flower is cut from chipboard so that it will hold up better than just paper would on the clip. To make the pen holder more secure, I punched a hole right through the clip board and inserted a large brad from the Styled Silver HPH Kit. That will keep the ribbon from slipping.

See the tack in the center of the cork butterfly? That was a regular flat headed tack and I just attached one of the cute buttons from the Button Latte pack with a glue dot. I used another button for the center of the daisy.

I also demoed this matching card at all my March workshops. Stamps: Cute & Curly
Card stock: Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue & Delicate Dots DSP
Ink: Certainly Celery
Accessories: Curly Label & 1/2" Circle punches, Rich Regal brads, Certainly Celery twill ribbon (SAB ribbon bundle), Top Note and Daisy Bigz Dies & the Big Shot

Enjoy your day!
