quick gift

Quick Gift
for fall friends

How is it that it is nearly fall? This time of year is filled with lots of new activities... school, sports and parties. Not to mention the holidays just around the corner. It's great to have a quick project to put together for those fall get togethers.

1 each Glitz Gigi Birds and Gigi Trees patterned paper
Glitz Small Round Pink Frosting Strip
Glitz Large Round Clear Frosting Strip
Glitz Feathered Jouranl Rub ons
Chipboard flower, purple cardstock, hole punch, purple ink

To make this project, you'll want a decent sized chipboard shape. I used a single page I took from a chipboard album. To cover the album, I cover the chipboard in adhesive and stick it right to the back of the Gigi cardstock, then cut around it with my craft knife. With the patterned paper already attached to the chipboard, you don't have to worry about it slipping around when you're cutting.

To give the flower a little more dimension, I inked the edges with a coordinating ink color. I then cut the photo and cardstock mat into circles and adhered them to the flower with foam tape to make them pop. Shape Glitz frosting around the photo to add another layer of dimension. To bring out the cute purple polka dots on the Gigi paper, I punched small circles from purple cardstock, and put them around my photo.

I then cut some flowers and a birdie our of a scrap of my Gigi patterned papers. They layered over my photo with foam tape. To finish it off I added three individual frosting rhinestones, and a Glitz rub on.

With just your basic supplies and some Glitzy goodness, you've got a great little gift!
