Guest Designer, Janice!

Hi there, I am Janice from Janice's Jems

Thank you so much for stopping by - I am truly honored to be a part of wishing Jaded Blossom a very happy birthday!!

For my project today I wanted to make a cookie exchange invitation! 

Ingredients:
Cookie sheet - Fancy Topper die 
Sentiment - Cookie Exchange
Gigerbread cut outs - Cricut Gingerbread cart
Peachy Keen faces
Stampin up very vanilla cardstock
Recollections 6x6 paper - Sugar Plums

I also wanted a cute package to put it all together so I made an apron box. I saw an idea like this on Pinterest, but never pinned it - lol. So I free handed most of the cuts, with a little trail & error, and this is what I came up with.


Sentiment -Cookie exchange
AC cardstock for the base - I needed it to be very sturdy
Recollections paper - Sugar Plums 12x12 stack
Crinkle ribbon - 3Girl Gam
8 recipe cards purchased from Michaels
The little spatula I found at Bed, Bath & Beyond



I hope you enjoyed my project.
Please leave a comment below - I love reading them!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JADED BLOSSOM!

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to be a guest designer, it was so much fun!
