Bridal Shower prize box and a Birthday giveaway!


Hello everyone, and Happy groundhogs day!! I have a sweet little purse shaped box that I have embellished with fabric, and a paper doily along side a handful of leftover flower cuts that have been hanging around waiting for just the right project! This box was cut with the new Bridal shower Cricut cartridge in a soft pink textured paper.


Nestled inside are two gorgeous nail colors all decked out to be presented as a prize for one of the shower games at Meagan's bridal shower this Saturday. The nail colors are called......wait for it....."tea and crumpets"  and  "a walk down the aisle" how perfect!!!  Can't you just see the big cornball grin on my face, patting myself on the back for such a clever idea?!! yep......I'm goofy! :)


This scrunched flower is made with layers of scallop circles, flowers, and circles that were all sitting in a stack of unused cuts. Simply spritzed with water and crumbled until dry, and a pretty brad inserted in the center. I used a strip of fabric to make a bow and tied it around  a slightly crumpled doily. I almost wish I could win this prize myself!

It's my birthday {born on groundhogs day} the silliest celebration of all time...explains so much don't you think? Well anyways I feel like celebrating! I'm thinking a giveaway!!! Leave me a comment on this post, and if you are still not a follower of my little crafty blog, the best birthday gift ever would be for you to hop on board and follow InkingPink!!! I will announce the winner on Monday Feb. 6th

Giveaway Time!!!


I will give one lucky "honorary groundhog" the robot party cartridge and a blue and green damask gypsy sleeve!!! A giant Thank you goes Provocraft for sponsoring this fun birthday prize!!!
