The Turned Up Gift Set Swap

Well I have a new post for you today lol! I recently signed up for The Turned Up Gift Set Swap on Youtube hosted by Tmika. I had a great time being creative, trying new techniques and making new items. It started my creative juices to flowing once again. I used a canning jar die from Top Dog Dies for my base and the paper that I covered the chipboard base out of is from the DCWV paper stack Tradewinds. I made the tops on my jar from some textured metallic paper by American Crafts. We had to make a handmade fabric flower, 2 matching embellishments and a tag that has been stamped, has trim and some type of dangle hanging from it and wrapped with three 24" pieces of lace.  This swap had me trying something different and coming out of my comfort zone. I was in a Vintage group and as you can see I used a lot of cream and white, which I think makes things look elegant. Here are my swaps.......

As you can see I even made hand stamped and made muslin bags to place them in! Thank you for visiting me today.
