Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop-Gift Bow Die

Welcome back to another 2014 Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Be sure travel with us as artisans from around the world share our creativity with you!

I am always looking for multiple ways to use my Stampin' Up! products in order to get the most use out of them. Last week I shared a cute little pumpkin made using the Gift Bow Die, and this week I am sharing a fun little wreath also created using the Gift Bow Die! By using the "tails" of the bow, I could quickly and easily die cut multiple "leaves" all at once. Then just glue them all together and decorate!

While I was working on my wreath, my son Gage decided that he too wanted to create something. . . So, I gave him a few sheets of cardstock (retired), some punches, scissors, and glue. I was quite impressed with the clever little Santa that he created:
He wanted to post it on my blog, just like I do with my creations. After I had the photos taken he made the comment, "I should have added a white beard." He is still quite cut in my opinion!

Now, let's hop on over to Cindy's blog and see what she has to share!
