This & That

I have a quick post for you today. I have had a lot going on and have not had a chance to craft very much. I made these projects a couple of weeks ago and thought I would share them with you.

My mother in-law asked me if I could donate some cards or projects to our local senior center to use as a door prize for a party they were having. Since I didn’t want to give a pack of none coordinating card, threw together these projects with supplies I had on hand.

For the first door prize, I decorated a candle holder and made a coordinating tag paper piecing Little Layered Flowers Button Daisy by Meljen’s Designs.

For the second door prize I stamped some coasters. Although I forgot to take a photo, I packaged the coasters with burlap, baker’s twine and a button so that the looked nice.

Thank you for stopping by!
