Let’s face it. You’re busy. I’m busy. In an ideal world, we’d have hours to craft all day but this is real life and sometimes what we need is crafting in a pinch. So let’s make something ultra fast to celebrate spring!
I used the Baby’s Garden die from my Little Loves collection. Since I wanted to bring a bouquet to my neighbor but had literally only ten minutes to spare, I grabbed a generic looking tag I had made months ago and not used. I scrounged some ribbon from my stash and decided it was a perfect match for the daffodils in my garden. I sliced a little opening in the tag and threaded a piece of ribbon through.
You could use whatever you have on hand. Just cut a random background for your tag; it can even be a square scrap. Add a ribbon.
The point is no fussing, just take a scrap or two or something you made but didn’t end up using and add a pretty ribbon.
Next I cut out the sweet Baby’s Garden die and glued it to the tag.
I delivered it to my friend with a minute to spare, and that included dashing out to the garden for flowers. I bet she thought I spent a great deal of time on this pretty gift. Don’t tell her it was a five minute craft- that’s our little secret!
The only thing I didn’t have time for is cleaning up after my little crafting adventure… but I’ll only mess up the table again later today anyway when I’m crafting in a hurry.
About my die cut designs… Did you know I cut them all freehand using only a pair of scissors and a piece of ordinary paper? I’m in love with my scissors and I always dream up the image, usually based on my garden or family and friends or something I’ve seen while out and about. Then I snip away anything that isn’t part of the picture I’m creating. I draw with scissors and watch the image emerge. I’ve been known to whip out paper and scissors in a museum or at a soccer game, at a birthday party or wandering in a garden. I capture it all in a single piece of paper. Isn’t that wonderful fun?
