Melissa this is such a sweet project! It speaks to my homespun loving heart and I hope to try it today! I need to poke through my supplies and see what I have! So inspired and excited! 🙂 Jill
Thank you Melissa for a lovely tutorial. I plan on trying to make a card just like yours tonight.

I LOVE ribbon stripped embellishments…but have rarely created with them. This is GORGEOUS! You’ve inspired me Melissa~

As soon as I saw this picture I knew it was Melissa. So cute! I’ve tied fabric scraps around the handles of gift bags – it looks so cute and doesn’t look like it was “picked up at the store at the last minute.” Thanks for the great tutorial.
Holly Saveur says
SO sweet..what a fun and amazing tree..LOVE it!!
Oh Melis! You have such a talent to create sweet things! Thank you for this idea! I think a stamp set with a “straw” stamp and different sizes and patterns of “fabric” would be great! Thank you.
Melissa, this is amazing. Looks so fun and like you said great for kids. Of course, not everyone has your flair for matching fabrics and papers.

Totally wonderful project, Melissa! I can’t wait to see if I have some fabric that will work & I’m so glad you showed the possibility of using a cinnamon stick! I’ve only made one card with a cinnamon stick, but every year I want to. Now I can this year!
Adorable Christmas project – love the homespun look with the feminine touch of lace trim. Can’t wait to try this with a cinnamon stick. Thanks for sharing!
Kelly Schirmer says
Oooh excited for this one! Such a great idea, Melissa!
