October Craft Hoarders Anonymous Hop.....

Good morning friends and welcome to the October "Hoarders Hop"!  It seems I have become a paper hoarder somewhere along the way.  When I first started crafting, I didn't use paper; I made my own backgrounds and that way I never worried about matching cause once finished with the image I just made my background match!  So through the years, like a true hoarder, I purchased and set aside.  When I came across this sheet of paper there were three coordinating pages so I took a deep breath and picked up my paper trimmer!  I love the beautiful coral, blues and tans and now that the deed is done, I feel so much better.  Now I have a gift from my heart for someone special.

The box below is all handmade and covered with the pretty paper and then I fussy cut the butterfly and made the little rose as well.

I also handmade the envelopes that fit the cards and now everything is tucked away inside it's own little box ready to go.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it!

What a beautiful gift set and a perfect way to use up some of your pretty papers!

Leslie Miller said...

Your card collection literally made me gasp when I first saw them! So beautiful, and what a fabulous gift with the matching box! Those papers/colors are gorgeous. I believe I saw them on your desk on one of your Wednesday work desk posts and comment on the colors then. So nice to see this project come to fruition. You have quite an eye for gorgeous papers. I try not to be a paper hoarder, but it just happens unintentionally. Can't use them up fast enough. I just love my designer paper!
