Magical Monday - 'Think Love'


Hello Blogger's

Welcome to the the last TMITA/PCC challenge for January. Nina's image this week is this gorgeous giraffe with love on his mind....... I think it's a love of the yummy chocolate contained in this little treat purse!
The very talented Kim set the challenge this week and she's challenged us to use the image on a box, bag or holder. I've used this heart template before here, it's super easy to create and makes the perfect little thank you gift filled with chocolate or lollies. Here is the link for the pattern if you want to try one.



Once the image was sized and printed I've coloured him using my Copic markers then cut him out.
I print the template for the purse directly onto the card I'm using and this is SU, which runs through my printer very well.
The Pumpkin card is from GKD and using a Spellbinder heart die I cut it out and dry embossed it.
A layer of Swiss dots embossed green card came next.
I've used my pine punch and some scrap dark green card to sit beneath the image .
A narrow strip of card was punched on both sides to create the handle and this is secured to the purse on either side with two heart brads.

Have you popped over to Nina's blog to snag this image and play along? The randomly picked challenge winner will receive a free Nina May image. I hope you join in I'd love to see what you make for Kim's challenge. Click on the image below to see all Nina's beautiful images.


February's images are just lovely....... shhh don't let on I told you this.....but you should spread the word.
It's my turn for the first challenge so hope you're going to be around to play along.

Till next time............

Love your heart container! I have one to post in a few minutes but I used ribbon for the handle -- may have to change it out for a paper handle like yours -- it seems to stay put better than the ribbon!
