SF-2022 July Blog Hop - Perfectly Punched!


Be sure to hop through all the blogs on the list near the bottom for tons of wonderful inspiration as we play with everything Perfectly Punched!

This month is all about projects are all about the punches - so for my projects today we are using four.  How fun, and punches are so quick and easy - you might say my projects are for the birds - enjoy!

First my card - this adorable card starts with a Basic White horizontal base, a Night of Navy layer that is 4" x 5 1/4" and three strips of the Lovely in Linen 1 1/2" x 3".  I just laid out those strips in a whimsical way laying a background.  For my punches - I used Basic White punched with the Decorative Circle.  My little bird from the Sweet Songbird bundle was stamped in Sweet Sorbet on that circle, and the wing was punched with the Songbird Builder punch.
I also used the Bough punch for my leaves and the Double Oval punch for my sentiment.  It just all came together so well.  Next my little gift box to go with it - holds a box of Mini Glue dots perfectly.  Start with a 5" square piece of Pale Papaya scored around the edges 1" in.  Cut as shown.
Then I put it together with the box in place to be sure it would not be too tight.
Then for the top I used a piece of the Lovely in Linen DSP - also 5" square and this one scored around the end at 15/16" and put it together the same way - making it just large enough to fit on top.  Either side would work, but I opted for the blue to match my card - 

I finished it off to match the card and tied a ribbon with a little base on it for the bird, so it could be slid on and off like a belly band.
And here it is all finished and ready for gift giving - so simple - so cute - so fun!
