Now that MFT has released this new, adorable, digi patterned paper "Sheltering Tree", I can finally share with you the Make and Take that Kim and I made for a recent manufacturer's show.
We had so much fun making this (literally, about 75 times...) with store owners from all across the country!
We used the clear cellophane bags from MFT, and then used an oval nestie to diecut all those sweet skies. The rolling hills are hand cut, and the tree you'll recognize from Grow Love, Plant a Tree, which has been paper pieced using both the Green Polka Dot and Woodgrain Patterned Papers.
For fun, or maybe because I'm a meanie... you decide....we used embroidery floss to sew those buttons right in place.
The sentiment "You Color My World" is from Clearly Sentimental About You (currently out of stock or else I'd link....) I love, love, love, mixing and matching the Clearly Sentimental sets with all my other MFT sets for added versatility.
Wouldn't these be a cute little giftie to your neighbors for May Day? That is, if you can resist eating the candy.....
I also brought this little piece of home decor that I'd made to the show as well. I think I scared a few people away from our Make and Take because that we were making this, but it was just an example of the technique taken a bit farther. I love all the added detail of the embroidery floss...
You'll find all of MFT's Digi Papers here... they're easy to download, open and print as many sheets as you need. Or, if you don't have a color printer, you can simply upload and print to your local office store or bring in a little thumb drive. Easy peasy!
Okay peeps, now Happy Earth Day! Go recycle something!
