VC Rocks Blog Hop #2 with Blog Candy

Welcome to my stop on the VC Rocks Blog Hop #2.  You may have come here from http://www.vcrocks.blogspot.com/   After my blog you will proceed to http://www.inkingthenightaway.blogspot.com/ to see some fantastic projects.  If you get lost on the hop, go to http://www.vcrocks.blogspot.com/  Read below for a description and details about blog candy.  You should be able to click on the photos for a larger view. Check back or follow my blog to see more wedding projects.  I will be sharing more I have made for the wedding in upcoming blog posts.  I have a photo of the group of projects at the end of this post.



Found this idea on Creations by Patty blog.  These purse boxes are very simple to make.  Great for small gifts, gift cards, trinkets, jewelry, or whatever you want to put in them.

I used Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla as my colors.  My son and his finance are using these colors for their wedding in August.  The Big Shot dies I used are Scallop Circle, Daisies #2, and Elegant Bouquet Impressions embossing folder.  I embossed with the folder after cutting the scallop circle out. 

I used the Wedding Sweet set to add the thank you.  Colored the words with markers, huffed on the stamp, and stamped on Very Vanilla.  I punched the words out with tag punches.  I used a new punch in the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack for the small flower on the tag and daisy.  I used Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon.  Said to say but it is retiring as well as the Really Rust Card stock. Tied the tag on with crochet thread.

Cut two scallop circles out.  Score leaving 7 scallops.  Do this on both scalloped circles.  See photo for detail. 



Next follow directions on the photo below and tape together.



You will tape this box to the two scallop circles with the small scored piece taped to the bottom of the box. Tie some ribbon, add some embellishments and you have a great package!

I have some blog candy for you.  Somehow I ended up with two of It's the Thought Level 1 hostess stamp sets from the Summer Mini.  This is a clear mount set.  You will need acrylic blocks for this one.  Just leave a comment with your email address included in the comment.  You can leave it in this form {email at company dot net.}  If you don't leave an email, I want be able to contact you and this will disqualify you from the blog candy drawing.  I will use random.org to pick the comment on Monday, June 28.

I have so much fun with the VC Rocks yahoo group.  We have games, a virtual hotel, swaps, classes and so much more. Join us next year.  In the meantime you can view samples at the blog http://www.vcrocks.blogspot.com/.

Now please hop on over to http://www.inkingthenightaway.blogspot.com/ to enjoy more great projects! 
Have a wonderful day!
