Low Budget Present

Today it's my turn to show you a little xmast present I've made for my little girls teacher. Her teacher is been working so hard the whole year and taking care of all the children I think she deserves a little light at the end of this year:-) It's also a simple but lovely gift for someone to take with you if you are invited vor a (xmas) diner or just for a sweet friend.

-Sentiment stamp
-Prima Hydrengea Flowers
-little paperclip
-2 candles
-1 matchbox
Take your two candles, cut some cardstock 1 3/4 by 3,5 inch and a piece of designpaper 1 2/4 by 3,5 inch. Wrap the cardstock around the candles and glue the ends together with sticky tape, wrap the designpaper around the cardstock and glue together also. Now you can embellish the paper as you want, I took some ribbon and rope and put a little Hydrengea flower on top of it.

Now for the decorated matchbox you cut cardstock as big as your matchbox and glue this with sticky tape at the front and back. Decorate with designpaper, stamp Melinda with Bouguet on a piece of white cardstock and color her with your favorite color medium. Glue her on the box and embellish with flowers, ribbon, brads and don't forget the sentiment;-) I've attached this with a tiny paperclip.

For the finishing touch you can wrap this set together in a cellofane paper and put a personal tag on it.
Hope you've enjoyed my little workshop and that you give it a try, it's fun and much appreciated by the one who will receive this present!
