2-N-1 Thank You Gift & Card

For my project this week at 
I designed a card to act as a Thank You, as well as a
little gift for the recipient!
 This is the perfect idea when you're wanting to thank a hostess,
bride's maids, your mom, or anyone who has done something special for you.
Adding a beautiful fabric flower takes a lot of the guess-work out of this sweet 
card and also makes it very quick and easy to put together...here's how it goes:
 
First, you will need one of the beautiful Fabric Flowers from the Curtsey Boutique
at Etsy, a flat-back brooch pin and a small piece of felt.

Sew (or glue) the pin to the piece of felt and then attach the felt directly to the back
of the Fabric Flower using a high-tack fabric glue (such as Fabri-Tac by Beacon)

Next, create a background paper to attach your pin to.
For my card, I used a banner die, which measured approximately 3"W X 4"H.
Punch two small holes into the background paper 
(measure across the width of the pin to determine how far apart holes should be placed)
Pin your Fabric Flower through.

In finishing, stamp a "thank you" or other desired sentiment to a tag or tab 
and add to the front of the card.  I also used a bit of Ecru Paper Doily to add some 
interest and beauty to the top of the banner paper.


Patterned papers by Authentique Paper; stamp by Fancy Pants; and 
ivory card by Paper Studio.
