WORKSHOP HOSTESS GIFT

Hi all!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!! Mine was super busy but really fun!! I had a workshop on Saturday and the gals were a lot of fun to stamp with, I was sorry to see it end!! The good thing is, a lot of them are coming to my class tomorrow night - whoohoo! So, this little box holds four 3x3 cards and envies. It is what I gave my hostess this past weekend for doing a workshop. She loved it, which made me happy - I always want my hostesses to feel like they are special because well, they are! I love making these cute little boxes, they are a lot of fun, and there is so much you can do with them! I used the new Say it With Scallops stamp set that perfectly matches the new Square Scallop Punch we have. And, what is great about his set is Stampin' Up! donates $2 for each of these sets sold to the Ronald McDonald House Foundation - makes you want one, doesn't it??!! Besides, look how cute it is!!! Here is a picture from the side so you can get a better idea of what it looks like! I just love this Bella Rose dp, and think it makes for a pretty box for any occasion really!! I think this is one of my favorites of the new lines of paper that came out - I cannot seem to get enough of using it - so pretty, makes every project look good! And, here is a pic of the box with the four cards that I made and placed inside the box, and yes, they are 3x3 cards with matching envies! Aren't they cute??!! Okay, maybe I am not supposed to say that, but I really liked the way they turned out - lol!!! So, today I am cutting kits for my card class tomorrow, which I am excited about because I have eight gals coming!! It will be fun to have a group to stamp with, I just love the social interaction!!! So, off to the stamp room I go!!! I will leave you the recipe below, and if you have any questions, in the words of Roxy, just hollah!!! And, if you want to host a workshop for me, send me an email and we will get you all set up(for the local gals who follow my blog; I know how some of you will respond if I don't put in this disclaimer *wink*)Toodles!
