Tranquility - Vellum Gift Twists

Hello everyone! Today I'd like to share with you a couple of Gift Twists I made inspired by 
Holly's beautiful - No Act of Kindness Gift Twist 

I started by cutting an 8-1/2"x11" pc of Vellum in two. Which I then dry embossed and coloured on the inside with dye ink.

Using a SBE I die cut both front and back of the Blue GT and the front edge of the Pink GT.

I fastened the side and back with double sided tape then wrapped each with coordinating decorative tape.

The Labels were die cut (heart - Memory Box, butterfly -Cheery Lynne) and stamped using Stazon  with Six Gentle Word's Tranquility from Quietfire Design and embellished. 

To complete I inserted zip top bags filled with scented bath salts before tying the Gift Twists with ribbons.

These were easy and fun to make and I’m very pleased with how they turned out.

Now I’m thinking I need to make some more twists to fill with chocolate kisses for my littlest Valentines.

What will you put in your gift twist?

Thanks for the visit , enjoy your day!

Hello and welcome, I'm having a lot of fun mono printing with my gel plate these days. One of the things I enjoy is the unpredictability...
