Swapping Projects

These doodad holders were inspired by Lisa Young, I took her idea and adapted as I needed.  I have made 10 of them with 2 more to go.  The flowers were inspired by Tammy Howell, I just love making paper flowers and there are so many different ones to make.

Inside of box, you can put paper clips, buttons, etc. in here and keep them compartamentalized.

I also did a Christmas card front swap, made 20 of these.  Used the Smooch Spritz for the shiny look on the flowers as well as Smooch Accent Ink for the poinsettia dots in the centre.
