Hope is such a beautiful word, isn't it? Its meaning has always had a powerful effect and presence in my life, sometimes I don't rely on it as much as I should and find that I've lost a bit of hope, but when I let it in, I see that it works miracles, large and small. As I was creating this little gift caddy, I decided that I wanted the word "hope" to be represented.
There's a fun Art With Heart May challenge happening now with flowers as our jumping off point. Eileen Hull has the sweetest dies available through Sizzix, so I pulled a couple of them out and set to work.
I started with the ScoreBoard Caddy die and some Melissa Frances Classic Elegance paper. I then added a tattered flower to the front of my caddy using vintage trim, glittered paper, and vintage button. The Fringed Flower die is a favorite of mine for making these fun, tattered, and layered flowers.
These caddies make such fun gifts and can be used for so many things including card sets, notepad holders, etc. I filled this particular caddy with a few craft supplies to share with a friend such as washi tape, buttons, ribbon, etc.
And then added in more Melissa Frances elements such as a cardstock sticker and resin applique. I used more vintage trim, a millinery flower, and trinket pin to finish off my little gift caddy. Such a fun and easy project to put together for someone very special.
You are welcome to play along with the Art With Heart Challenge. Learn more about the May challenge HERE.
Enjoy a beautiful day!
