The blog hop officially starts today at 9:00 AM CST!
WELCOME to our FIRST EVER "Flyin' with the Farm" BLOG HOP!
We are super excited to be debuting FOUR NEW RELEASES and there are plenty of opportunities to WIN them, too! If you are just starting out on my blog, be sure to head on over to The Greeting Farm's blog to begin this fun Blog Hop! If you are already in on all the fun, then thanks for coming over from Sparkle's blog!
This new little hottie is Edward. Isn't he just the cutest thing? I have to admit I haven't yet read the Twilight series (though I loved vampire stories when I was a teen)but my daughter and her friends are totally smitten. Therefor, I consulted my daughter extensively while making these projects, thanks for all your help Lindsey-pie! Edward was so inspiring that I made a gift set that I thought would be fun for my daughter to give to her friends.
First up is a book mark (are those shirt-tails sticking out adorable or what?)made from the corner of a used envelope. I just cut off the corner, layered on some cardstock and ribbons and had a quick, easy gift for someone who loves to read. Restraining myself from using pop-dots was difficult but I tried to keep the bow, etc., flat so the book wouldn't be damaged when closed.
When I was digging through my punches I found the apple which was just the perfect size. It may be too tiny to read but inside the apple is a team Edward sign. I have no clue what that means but Lindsey assured me it was cool.
Next, I made a little gift box using the PIZZA BOX TUTORIAL from SCS. The only thing I did differently was to cut out an apple shape on the front and put some acetate behind it. We will probably fill it with those little chocolate hearts.
I put a magnet on the back of the "I heart Edward" oval so they could put it on their locker or fridge.
And finally, a card. Edward's awesome locks are peeking out of the torn heart. Since I didn't read the book I can't say for certain, but doesn't someone always get their heart broken in a love story?
Inside, Edward is stalked by a shadowy figure but he is just too stinkin cute to be eaten!
