Quick and Easy Birthday Gift

Hi there!  I just wanted to share with you a little gift that I made for a co-worker of mine.  If you are a creative soul then your friends and family usually hope for a handmade gift (well most of them, ha). This is a little gift I created using some of Rhonna's "Follow Your Heart" line from My Mind's Eye.  My friend loved it and I was pretty pleased with it too!

I have to say that the twine is absolutely delish! It's thicker than most that I have come across, I plan on going back to my LSS and stocking up on more!  The stamps that I used on the sentiment for the card are from Stampin' Up.  The ribbon used is from My Mind's Eye and I'm bummed that I don't have more as it was from last years line.  The key is from Tim Holtz, the frame and glass from Ranger.  It all came together very nicely and I must remember to do this again soon!

**How did I make the bookmark? Well, it was so easy! I simply fed the ribbon through the key then I folded the edge and hot glued it down all nice and tidy. Then I did the same thing with the frame, it has a eye ring so I just fed the ribbon through it and hold glued the ribbon down.  I had the sewing machine in arm's length but the glue gun was even easier :)  What you can't see is that on the backside of the frame is a cute monogram as the piece is double sided.

The book is fabulous and sadly for my friend not part of her gift, hehe.  But, you must look into buying yourself a copy or the e-book for Kindle.  You can see info for it on my post HERE as well as a free printable.

Thanks for stopping in!
