My Stampers 6 club get gifts from Tiffanys?!

I'm very proud to say that many of my Stampers 6 club ladies come back to my club time and again. Some have become friends and I think it's safe to say that each and every one of them shares my passion for stamping. It is my pleasure to handcraft a card and a little gift to pop into their parcels each month (which is why places are limited!) I would have liked to send them all a special little something from Tiffanys at Christmas but naturally funds do not allow for such extravagance, so I did the next best thing! Come and have a look:

Ahh that distinctive blue packaging and white ribbon trim! Guaranteed to make a girl feel special! Stampin' Up's Soft Sky card stock and pure white taffeta ribbon is perfect for these Tiffany-style treats.

The pouches are so easy to make using the must-have envelope board. Here's how:

1.  Cut a  4" square of card stock
2.  Place on the board at 2" and punch and score all the way round
3.  Use the corner rounder on all four points and punch a hole at each curved corner
4.  Stamp a sentiment using a stamp-a-majig for accurate position
5.  Thread a ribbon through the holes and draw the pouch closed
Yes, it really is that simple! I added a heart charm punched from a silver foil sheet that had been embossed with my woodgrain embossing folder.

Are you curious to know what was inside the pouch? Come and have a peek:

When I saw the Frosted Finish Embellishments, they took my breath away - they were so detailed and the rhinestones so sparkly! I have some silver findings and jewellery pliers in my craft square metre so I immediately turned the embellishments into earrings, wrapped them in tissue and placed them into their pouches.

The children don't go back to school until next week so I'm still enjoying their company. A sighting of my eldest son has become quite rare during the holidays when he usually answers the siren call of the xbox but these holidays I've become his Biology revision buddy - which is surprisingly good fun!

Have a great weekend and I'll see you very soon,
