Sailing Away (FMS9)


This week at Freshly Made Sketches, there is a wonderful sketch that could be interpreted in so many ways. For my take, I decided to make a little gift package. (and with most sketch challenges, I did take a little bit of creative license as I progressed through my project).


I used the Uncharted Territory stamp set and watercoloured using coordinating colours (listed below). I added a little strip of Lucky Limeade which was scallop punched and stamped with a birthday sentiment. Over the seam, I tied on some Twill Tape.



…and then on the inside I used my Simply Scored tool to make a little pocket.


I used my Word Window punch to make a little slit for some candy to slide into – makes it a “sweet” little package!


Hope you have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
