A little gift

Goodness me, I don't know where the last two days have gone, sort of always been busy but not much to show, especially craft wise.

So I am going to share something I made a couple of weeks ago as a little gift for my DIL. I would take forever to give instructions how I made the folder if I could even make it understandable which I doubt, so all I shall say is I used my scoreboard and made lots of folds ! If somebody really wants some guidelines, please PM me and I will see what I can explain.


The DP is my minds eye, the tree stamp on the front is from Inkadinkado 97513 and the one on the notelets is also Inkadinkado 98702-DC........in case it's not been obvious the last couple of weeks, I really love the new Autumn releses from this company. I added a small punched flower to each notelet and coloured the leaves with Promarkerts to match. I also ran each notelet though the Cuttlebug using different folders so each is individual.

Brenda I'm lost for words, this is so beautiful, but i'm sorry if somebody made this for me I definately couldn't use it. It would be for looking purposes only. I wouldn't mind knowing how to make it for xmas gifts. Just everything about it is stunning so i'm not going to pick out individual elements.
Happy crafting
