Stampin Friends - Blog Hop - Thankful For You

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop for September! 

This month's theme is 'Thankful For You'. 

If you are following along with the Hop, you may have arrived from  Steph's Blog. 

Be sure to read through my post, comment below and then continue on to Barb's Blog. 

If you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of all the participants at the end of each of their Blog Posts.

Here are the projects I made for this month's Hop ...

I used the Gnomes dies (which coordinate with the Kindest Gnomes stamp set) to create a small Treat/Gift Box and a card.

And ...the Gnomes dance :o) ...

This little box measures 3¾"x3¾"x1⅛" and is perfectly sized to hold a box of Guylian chocolates - although you could put a small gift in there instead if you wished :o) But the chocolates are a perfect little 'Thank You' gift.

The paper used is in Tahitian Tide and comes from the 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series Paper pack.

The closure for the Box is on the back. I created the circles using one of the Stylish Shapes dies - the brads our some of our (retired) silver brads.

The Baker's Twine comes from our Essentials Pack.

The sentiment used for the card comes from the Precious Moments stamp set - it was cut out using another of the Stylish Shapes dies.

The Gnome is super easy to create and make 'dance'. The Video below shows you how to do this :o)

Here is the Video for the Box ...
