On day five of Papertrey’s sixth anniversary celebration, Nichole challenged us to “create some type of wrap, tag or gift packaging project that is inspired by a photo you found on Pinterest or another site.” I hadn’t planned to participate today since I had quite a bit of snow to shovel and needed to finish my religious ed class prep, but that changed when I read the challenge. Part of my prep was to put together the Valentine’s treat for my class, so here I am. (Timing, as they say, is everything.)
The pencils that Dawn used in her Tremendous Treats: Valentine post are adorable, so I stopped at Target last week and picked up a couple of packages. While there I bought a few sweet treats, too, remembering that I had some bags from when Brianna was little (probably from about 15 years ago) that would be cute and easy packaging. A Crate Paper post featuring tags created by Rebecca Luminarias was my inspiration with the fabulous mix of patterned papers. I used a Fillable Frames #9 die cut as the base for the layered bits and pieces of my tag.
My muscles were put to the test today and failed. The driveway is cleared, but my back and arms are hurting. It’s time for me to get close and personal with my heating pad.
