As promised yesterday, here’s my first ‘Craft It Forward’ project. It’s going via snail mail to surprise a special friend of Boomdeeadda.
The little scarlet hued box I introduced yesterday has been filled with all manner of paper paraphernalia you could imagine to artfully wrap a special gift for her own friends.
I included a set of monthly index cards for her recipe box to help track all the special days.
Along with gift topper’s, ribbons and tags.
All tucked inside a pillow envelope made especially for her. As you might know, these collaged pillow envelopes are a tradition in the Boomdee craft room.
For me, creating a collage is really another form of story telling. Telling stories is one of the lovely things I enjoy about blogging. All the intricate shapes are made with my Die Cuts and the Big Shot. I included a sweetheart of a fairy magically dancing around and washing away the dust of everyday life. The background reminded me of petite-point which lends to a secret significance.
She’ll also find a set of pillow envelopes to decorate for gift giving or artfully delivering a note for someone extra special. I so enjoyed crafting this with her in mind.
Thank you to my special friend for following my blog, your support means so much.
Surprise!!! You are receiving Boom Box number one.
