Gift Ensemble

Hello, stampers! What do you think of this gift ensemble? I made this 3 weeks ago for a friend's birthday and I finally gave it to her on Sunday. She was away for awhile and came back on her birthday. I made her a journal that says "a friend loveth at all times" from the book of Proverbs 17:17a in the Bible. There was also a card and a pizza box with 8 note cards.

Here is the journal. I covered it with Rich Razzleberry cardstock and Cottage Wall DSP. Love this new DSP! My DH did the verse the computer and print it out for me. I then ran it through the Big Shot using the Top Note Die.

Close up of the beautiful butterflies. Aren't they pretty? I cut these butterflies out with the Bigz Beautiful Butterflies Die using the Big Shot machine.

Here is the inside cover. I was trying to cover the chipboard all around the holes for the wire and it was hard to open and close the cover. I had to cut it off so the cover can open and close better. I used the Spiral punch to punch the holes out.

Here is a close up of the butterfly bookmark.

A matching card.

Here is the pizza box that holds 8 mini 3x3 note cards.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Happy Stamping!
