Spice up those packages… Video!


I have a fun video for you all today from the Hero Arts Blog. It shows how to create unique “bows” for your holiday packages. This is what I was going to do for teacher gifts – give a set of these in different styles along with wrapping paper. Never got to do it – boo – but I will next year.

Here is a piece I created using the die. It is from a class – I cut 100 of these in no time flat…

I hope everyone is having some time off with family. We are so happy to have the three kiddos together and laughing. So much giggling going on here. Here is a shot from the pool today…
