Wood Paper Bow Thank You Card

June 20, 2016

School is almost out for our kids. I know many kids who have been out of school for weeks but our last day is just a few days away. Hooray for the end of the school year! We are so grateful for the wonderful teachers who work so hard to teach and enrich our kids. End of the year gifts are the perfect way to say thank you! It’s a nice way to end the year, tied up nicely like a big fat bow.

We packed up some goodies in cellophane and all our gift needed was a tag. We starting to think about what we would write and decided a card was needed instead. AHA! We made a card and tag all-in-one. We created a stunning Cherry Wood Paper bow to help dress up our gift and are thrilled with the result.

4. Create bow. We lined the back side of the Cherry Wood paper with a piece of red paper before cutting out. There are so many ways to create bows. We used the Fine & Dandy Bow die by Dear Lizzy to cut out and create our wood bow. Simply die cut the shape in wood paper and assemble per the die instructions.

5. Adhere wood bow to card front.

6. Loop baker’s twine through card fold and tie onto gift package.

Cherry Wood and Cork … such a great coupling of materials. These two natural finishes look amazing together and are the main supplies for this week’s project inspiration. With Father’s Day just around the corner we felt another Wood Paper Card was in order. It’s handmade and handcrafted from real wood! Dad will be impressed.

Memorial Day Wishes

May 30, 2016

We are so grateful for the men and women who defended and serve our treasured country to provide us our freedoms. We remember you for your ultimate sacrifice and wish to honor you today. We are so grateful to be Americans and live in such a great country where our fallen heroes have put their lives on the line for us.

Last year we shared a free Land of the Brave printable,  and we are making it available to you again this year. You can download that at the end of this post.

Feel free to download if you haven’t already. This year we created another home decor piece that highlights our great country. We stamped a large United States image in brown ink on a sheet of Birch Wood paper. You can highlight a particular State by stamping that State onto another sheet of Birch Wood paper. Then cut out the State shape and adhere with foam tape. Easy!

We hope you have a safe and inspiring Memorial day.
