***Hi there! I apologize in advance! I have multiple blog posts today. If you are looking for my WM Blog Party post, please click HERE, if you are looking for my Pink Paislee post, please click HERE OR scroll up. Thank You :)***

 It's Tuesday, so that means it's time for an all new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge! Thanks to all who played along last week! This week, Heather is our lovely hostess and she chose: Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More! Otherwise, create ANYTHING other than a card!
I opted to make a few mini Valentine decorations ~ one for my dear husband, Scott and one for my sweet sister, Tina.
Truth be told, I only planned on making one ~ the neutral one but when I asked Scott for his 2 cents, he thought it looked naked and suggested I add color so this one is for you baby ;) I merely swapped out the flower, buttons, ribbon, added a hint of color to the stamped image and decorative trim and used a piece of Kraft colored cs instead of upcycled corrugated cardboard.
Here's a close up of the pretty image:
To make these minis, I used a Classic Heart die to cut a piece of canvas, stamped the beautiful floral image and a few bees from Bee My Honey. Stitched it on to a corrugated scalloped heart that was cut using a Classic Scalloped Heart die, added bits and pieces of various trim and a ribbon hanger.
Each were finished it off with a sweet tag:
This set contains a variety of both honey bees and sentiments.
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you are able to join along! Please be sure to visit the Flourishes blog for COMPLETE challenge details and for some wonderful inspiration visit the entire DT: TammyHeatherSilkeMakikoCindyBeateMona (that's me), Cheryl Lea (January Guest Designer).
