    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.

    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!
