Last Weekend Before School

Panic! Everyone try to get some fun in! BBQ? Pool? Late-night Movie? We'll be headed to the the beach, enjoying the sun. 

In the meantime, here's a little cooling action for you. I'm still testing out my Sizzix snowflakes and this time, I did an impression with one on gold paper, instead of cutting through it. If you have an embossing pad you can use that or you can make your plate a little shorter so there's less pressure and the die won't cut.

I layered it with a wooden heart and a doily. It goes on a kraft gift bag, because I love kraft and gold and white together.

Here's a close-up so you can see the shine a bit on the snowflake.

This was so fast to make and might be nice for a little holiday gift card for a teacher or friend...just to dress it up a bit. 

Happy Last Weekend Before (our) School,
