More Simply Adorned...


Here are photos of the Simply Adorned Valentine's Day/Chinese New Year charm insert that I promised.  For those of you who may not know, this is the year of the tiger in the Chinese Zodiac Calendar.

I apologize for the quality of this photo...I just couldn't get a clear picture...

Anyway, the heart is from a cute favor box that Naoko made for us.  It's hard to see, but the whole heart is so smooth and glossy!  The tiger stripes are from a new stamp set that was given out at Leadership... It will be in next year's catalog and idea book.  Here is the original favor box. 

She is so creative!  I assure you, no hearts were broken when I made my charm insert.  I placed it so that it was offset and yet I didn't have to cut it! :)

This is the box all gussied up with a 5/8" circle charm inside.  I found this idea from the Artistic Avenger, Carrie Gaskin.  She is so talented!  Why fuss with something that is already so awesome?!

Here's the inside:

On Carrie's box, she used die cut chipboard letters.  I attached Cameo Coral card stock to the chipboard that comes with the Decor Elements with our anywhere gluestick and cut out my own letters.  It was quick and easy!

As I mentioned in a pervious post, this Simply Adorned charm and box will be one of the items in our Silent Auction at our Pacific Stampers Stamp Camp this weekend.  There will be a lot of other really beautiful handmade items too!

Ok, gotta run!  I'll post more later!  Thank you for visiting!
Stampin' Smiles!
