Originally, I was going to make a box to house these hand-made soaps and lip balm when I discovered that they fitted perfectly in Stampin' Up!'s Tiny Treat Boxes! I received a beautiful wedding favour from the lovely Danni who lives in Germany and her wedding favour inspired these.
You've probably heard me mention that I was going to attend Stampin' Up!'s OnStage Live event in Salt Lake City this year. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet with a couple of Demos I met last year at the Brussels event and to pick up where we left off. I wanted to take them a little gift, not just a swap card, and I wanted something quintessentially English, other than tea!
I found these adorable hand made soaps with a single English Rose to adorn it.............
Then I found these beautifully packaged lip balms in a tin - the lid sported a sepia photo of lady with beautiful hair scooped up into a bun and nestled in that bun was a sculpted rose.
The English Rose, I thought - seemed appropriate to take a "slice" of England to them!
I feel a bit guilty I haven't been able to share sneak peeks at time of writing, because I have no information to hand - I have yet to attend OnStage, and yes, this has been written 5 weeks in advance!
It wouldn't surprise me if there's been a compulsory blackout temporarily, but I will post sneak peeks as soon as I get the all clear!
