Post Office Presents

The ladies at our local post office are so sweet to me when I bring in my pile of packages for GraceWorks each day, so I wanted to make them something a little extra special. I used my Vintage Picnic Basket set from PaperTrey Ink and stamped the baskets with the strawberries on some Lemonade & Blue Jeans dp by On the Dot. After stamping and coloring the envelopes, I punched them out with the Super Jumbo circle punch and then attached the colored baskets. I used the pink scalloped circle punch (I can never remember if it's mega or giga...) for the green layer. I used the reverse side of the paper for the bottom of the notepads and attached ribbon and buttons here and there to make them pretty. Here's a closer view of the baskets...

Michelle Wooderson would be so proud of me for mass producing. Of course, she doesn't really know who I am... but she would be proud of me if she did - especially since I followed her tutorial and since I detest mass producing!! LOL!! I certainly do feel like I got a lot accomplished, though. I may have to try this more often!!

Have a wonderful day! It's a big winter storm here. SO pretty!!!!!
