Introducing Heartfelt Basics

Melissa Bickford is introducing two sets to all of you this month.  I already showcased the versatility found in Men of Life.  Now I want to share a fun little project that demonstrates what an incredible resource her new sentiment set, Heartfelt Basics, is.

Purse
One of Lauren's new Timeless Templates for November is the CUTEST little purse, entitled Purse-onality Clutch.  I have been so anxious to give it a try and thought this would be the perfect pairing for my project concept. The purse was very simple to construct.  I just print the templates directly onto my cardstock, cut, scored & assembled!  Then came the fun part of embellishing!  I created a tag using one of Melissa's new sentiments…

"Hoping all your birthday wishes come true"

This sentiment inspired me to *fill* the purse with wishes!

I created wishes for one of my dear friends on cardstock tags that were adhered to Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares. The "Wishing you" partial sentiment in Melissa's set was a perfect starting point for each wish.  The remainder of the text was printed from my computer onto Ripe Avocado cardstock.  I trimmed all of the wording into strips and adhered them in place.  A little pull tab was created with Ripe Avocado satin ribbon.  Each chocolate square was inserted into a hand-stamp[ed cardstock sleeve.  The ribbon pull tab makes it easy for the recipient to pull the chocolate & wish out.

I think this is such a fun idea to execute for friends & co-workers on their birthday.  It's just a step up from an ordinary birthday card, and it sure does taste good too!  Heartfelt Basics was the perfect companion and I look forward to use it more often in the future!
