Tags and Wraps Challenge

 Happy Saturday! First of all, a big thank-you for the comments and well wishes on the anniversary post yesterday. They make me and Dr. John smile from cheek to cheek! We will continue to work hard on a long-lasting marriage! ANY marriage takes work, no doubt!

 I am sharing a project that I made for Tags and Wraps Challenge over Moxie Fab World
I started out with some stamping for the flowers on paper and really liked how they turned out. Instead of turning it into part of a card, I decided to decorate it for a little birthday package. I think this package comes in handy for putting gift cards, small treats (such as coffee/tea bags, candy, chocolates...)
happy birthday to you
edited: Stamps are from Remember by Hero Arts, (with love) sentiment from Beanstalks by CAS-ual Fridays 
 I added some SRM Stitching stickers ( not only that they help secure the piece in place and they are decorative!). For the closure of the package, I punched two small holes and strung through the button and stamped text flower. Again, it's pretty and yet also functional! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Is the "with Love" a stamp or tape? It is such an adorable border at the bottom!

I just love that our stamping addiction can turn a brown paper bag into a work of utter delight! Beautifully made Virginia!

The watercolor look of your flowers is magnificent, Virginia. The "with love" border and stitching are awesome embellishments. And your flower has lovely texture and depth. Talk about a pretty package!

You just created the prettiest package, ever! I love kraft and you paired it with such yummy flower colors! Who needs a gift inside? Just the package is a gift in itself!
