CREATIONS BY AR BLOG HOP


Welcome to our blog hop, I have three gorgeous designs to share with you today from Adela's new Valentine Release.

HEART BASKET



The first is this lovely little Heart Basket.  Just big enough to hold treats for that special someone!


I've popped a few sweeties, including a heart, into very tiny glassine bags, securing them with heart tags and bakers twine.


I made another of these on a previous post, going for a more Shabby Chic design, you can see it here.

HEART BOX



The second is a wonderful Heart Box, just perfect for delicious chocolates!


The lid is hinged, and I love the way the ribbon keeps everything securely in place.


This really is a beautiful design and a fab gift box for any occasion.

...and the third design is this absolutely gorgeous Bird Cage.  I have to say this template really blew me away.




The amount of detail is fabulous (I made a simple version) and it goes together like a dream!

ISN'T SHE LOVELY CARD

Adela also made another template, which I haven't made yet.  It is a beautiful dress shaped card.  If you are interested in that please go here to take a look.

Edited to add Isn't She Lovely card:

 Apologies for the poor quality of the photo, I have just made the dress card using Adela's template and wanted to share it with you.



This is  a cute little dress and such a sweet sized card

Welcome to the team. Your work is stunning. I so wanted to sew my box like you, but atlas, you are a MUCH better seamstress than I:) You've made me want to at least attempt it. I love your birdcage and the heart windows. I think I may have to get that stamp set too!

builderb said...

Seeing your glassine bags makes me a bit nostalgic, they are perfect for the project you chose! Romantic, Nostalgic, Sweet, Valentine, etc...

I didn't realize there was a little box on the inside of the heart template, that's a clever idea.

My favorite by far is the green and yellow project from the ribbon challenge. I would add a couple of butterflies on top and give this to one of my dearest friends as a bridal shower favor, her theme is butterflies in flight. She's going to love this as I did.
