Floral Treats - CSS Review Day 2


Hi friends!  So glad to have you back for another day of the Clear & Simple Stamps: Release in Review.  Our focus today is on florals and butterflies.  Collection 3 is filled with beautiful floral images, nature inspired themes, and butterflies galore... perfect for spring and summer creations.

I thought it would be fun to make a sweet table setting for a friend.  This would also make a nice little package to take to a hostess, drop with a special secretary, or to gift as a small surprise to someone dear.


The Party Favor 5 die makes a small gable box from one sheet of 8.5 x 11" paper.  It is all one piece and easily folds for sturdy treat packaging.  TIP: To create the floral stamped wrap, I trimmed a strip of On the Catwalk Cream cardstock and adhered it to the die with low-tack tape.  When I ran it through the die-cut machine, I had perfect score lines to coordinate with the box corners.


A small notecard stamped with Flowers completes the ensemble.  I love the variety of blossoms included in this set... and I love the little strawberries.


We hope you'll stop by the other CSS designer's blogs today... lots of lovely projects filled with flowers and butterflies!
