This week, I made a linky button and a new page on my blog. Thank you to Ashley Hughes for the apple and my hubby for the inspiration. Click here to read last week's PMA Wednesday post.
One of my home made its was an anniversary gift. My hubby is a "wears his heart on his sleeve" kind of guy, who appreciates a thoughtful, sentimental gift over the traditional or modern gift. Once again, I turn to Pinterest for some "pin"spiration. I found this photo.
I gathered these supplies: blank cards and envelopes from the scrapbook section at Wal-Mart (My Wal-Mart still had their Valentine stuff available) and my trusty, Flair pens.
I decorated each envelope based on the holiday theme for the month, added the words "Open When...", decorated the card inside, and wrote a special message.
Here they are all wrapped up in red ric rac ribbon.
Original Pinspiration My version
I did do some things differently from the original directions. First, I couldn't find a rounded wreath. All I could find was a green floral wreath. Next, I used about 1/2 a skein of "I Love This Yarn!" #200 Graymist and 1 piece each red and pink fleece (not felt) from Hobby Lobby. I liked how the fleece was thicker than the felt. Finally, instead of applying the hearts with hot glue, I used Elmer's Spray Adhesive. I did use hot glue to secure the yarn on the back. I finished it off with a hanger made from sheer pink striped ribbon.
