Hi Fetti Friends, It's Kelly here today! This month's Confetti Camera theme is all about friends! The whole reason I started stamping in the first place was to create gifts and cards for my friends, so this month's theme is right up my alley! I love creating handmade sewn gifts as well, so the fabric I used for the key wristlet and tissue cozy was the perfect starting point for this entire ensemble.
 
To begin, I created a cute little tag to attach to the key wristlet to give it that little something extra. I cut a piece of https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/cardstock-8-5x11/products/piggy-bank-cardstock-8-5-x-11 Piggy Bank cardstock and rounded the corners. I also used the https://reverseconfetti.com/products/stitched-rays-cover-panel-confetti-cuts Stitched Rays Cover Panel to give it some extra detail. The sentiment, which is from https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/all-stamp-sets/products/the-most-beauty The Most Beauty, is heat embossed in silver to coordinate with the metal on the key wristlet. I also colored four of each image from the https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/all-stamp-sets/products/tall-blooms Tall Blooms stamp set using Copic markers. I used colors that are present in the fabric for a cohesive gift set.  Once I had all of the them colored, I used the https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/confetti-cuts/products/tall-blooms-confetti-cuts Tall Blooms Confetti Cuts to die cut them. I chose the purple one to add to the tag to bring in some additional color.
 
The friend that I made this for always compliments me on my cards, so I thought it would be fun to create a 3 by 3 card collection with envelopes that I could put inside of a container made with the https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/confetti-cuts/products/bag-tags-creator Bags and Tags Creator Confetti Cuts.  I scored the bottom of each piece at one inch, but then I adhered them further apart to create a larger inside area to make sure the bulk of the 4 cards and envelopes would fit. It ended up being perfect. I decorated the front of the box, as well as each of the four cards using the same stamp sets and elements as the tag.
 
Each card measures 3 by 3 and uses a different sentiment from either The  Most Beauty stamp set or Tall Blooms. I realized that this will be a gift that keeps on giving, as my friend sends these little cards to 4 other friends! How fun! Two of the cards are made with Piggy Bank cardstock and the other two are made with https://reverseconfetti.com/collections/cardstock-8-5x11/products/iced-aqua-cardstock-8-5-x-11 Iced Aqua. It is almost a perfect match to the blue in the fabric! 
 
 
I love how each sentiment looks embossed in silver to highlight the beautiful flowers and leaves from Tall Blooms. Once the cards were finished, I tucked them inside of the box and tied it shut with some grey gingham ribbon. I also tied up the tissue cozy with the same ribbon to keep it cohesive. I also made a quick tag to add to the cozy as well. It really ties in the "friend" theme nicely! I can't wait to give this handmade gift to my friend! I've found that gifts from the heart always mean so much more than something store bought.
