For the Love Birds


 Hi Everybody. Today I have made a gift set that would be great for a housewarming gift or bridal shower.

The template I have used is a New Template available this month called What's your Angle.. I cut the template out using Ga Ga gingham digital paper. The decorative panels are cut out with white and them embossed. Look at that paper bow on top of the box. Yup you guessed it I made it using the new Abra-Bow Dabra cut file. Now you can make your own gift bows in seconds. Ack!!! Way to cool as the kids would say!! My sentiment is stamped on the new Cornice Trimmed Oval Cut file and stamped using Singing Silhouette stamp set.

My big beautiful Bloom is a old cut file called Flutters and Flowers . After it was cut I ran it threw my crimp-er and topped it off with a matching gingham brad. I will be putting my home made dish clothes in the gift box :)

I couldn't decide at first what kind of card I was going to make and then I remember about the Gardener Apron Cut file. This fits perfect as a kitchen apron to finish off my gift set :)... I hope you enjoyed today's post. For more inspiration check out the MTME Gallery. Don't forget to visit the other DT members today for some more amazing eye candy :)....Monique

PERFECTION Monique! I adore this set. It has such a sweet charm to it! I love the set you have come up with using the gingham(my all time favourite) the bow you made (fabulous) the little apron is too darn cute. You won't believe this, but I just knitted up some dish clothes to post as well. I must say, yours have intrigued me...do you have a pattern you could share. Mine are a simple K1 stitch, but yours look sooo pretty!
Love coming to your little neck of the woods!
