the PIF giveaway



Before heading to Florida, I was finally, finally able to finish up and mail out my 'Pay It Forward' gifts.

I made some zippered pouches...

...and some gift tag sets.

For the tags, I photocopied some images from an old French book, the cover of which I used for my planner.


I used some of the wine cork stamps I made to decorate the front of the tags, and added to and from to the backs.
There were some Moleskine notebooks included, which I decorated. This one is a project from "Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts"...
The other two I decorated with some more images out of the French book and some stamps...


Thanks ladies, for taking part in this ~ I had a lot of fun with it!
