InStyle Stamps 2nd Blog Hop!
Hello everyone and welcome to InStyle Stamps 2nd Blog Hop! The theme of our blog hop is "Contain Yourself"! Well....since Mother's Day is approaching, I wanted my project to center around what mother-hood is all about for most moms. I made a slider box by tearing apart an empty box that held cosmetics and made a template from it.
I decorated the cover with Basic Grey's Porcelain designer paper and embellished the cover with flowers and buttons. I made the handles by using the largest size Marvey U. scallop punch. Since I only needed 3/4's of the scallop, I cut off a quarter of the scallop and then I centered a med. size circle punch on the scallop and punched out the center portion. Ta da... purse handles!
The sentiment was computer generated and it reads "The definition of the word Mother".
The sliding compartment contains 5 note cards of various images that briefly describe some aspect of what it means to be a mom.
I wrapped up my project by making a Mother's Day card to compliment my "Contain Yourself" project.
OK....enough about me...it's time to give you the juicy details about our blog hop!
