First things first ... let me share the Parcel Box die!
You can see there are several sweet little element dies that provide options to close the Parcels: slots - for all of those gorgeous ribbons Ellen sends free with your order!
These darling buttons for string enclosures, and a perfect little place to tie on the sweet little tag from the set:
I found another use for those little slots... how about a belt? Okay, it's just a strip of kraft paper made to look like a belt, with a few dots of Nuvo as an accent, that I carried over to the card!
Now if you really use your imagination, you might find other ways, of corset ...
here's how I made it - it was a cinch! lol
After cutting the Parcel box, and before it was folded, I used a little dotted die from an MFT blueprints 18 set:
You can see that I've added a little bit of black cardstock behind one of the flaps, which only draws attention to the holes.
A few stitches with a double strand of black quilting thread, and it's closed!
You may have noticed a bit of gingham, and fun alpha accents on my cards ... these are a few more of the wonderful products available now in the Ellen Hutson, LLC shop!
Thanks for spending a bit of your Weekend Eve with me! Hope all of you Moms enjoy your special day on Sunday... xx
