A Warm Hello (and yummy too)

I love taking something really simple and making it special - and as crafters we are lucky to have the tools, means and ability to do just that.  This particular little project did not take long at all to put together however I think the extra effort makes all the difference when presenting your gesture of kindness to a friend.

JustRite Stampers recently released their own custom dies from Spellbinders.  I used the Charm Dies for my cookie wrap.  These dies were designed to coordinate perfectly with a variety of JustRite stamps and it is seriously so quick and easy to make a professionally looking tag for virtually any occasion - gotta love that! But wait there is more to reveal though..

This month Justrite has released the brand new borders and centers set called A Warm Hello.  This set comes with 9 borders and centers (that's 18 interchangeable stamps!!!) which have the following great features:

  • Centers fit 1-5/8" and 2" Round Stamper
  • Centers also fit 2" Square Stamper
  • Use centers with 15 pt letters to create custom borders

I do love stitching on my projects and you may have noticed that one of the centers above has a perfect round border of little dots.  I stamped this border on cardstock and cut out the shape using Spellbinders     Fleur de lis Doily Motifs.   Following the center dot pattern I pierced the holes, hand stitched with floss and then adhered the cookie doily topper to parchment paper and secured my cookie stack with twine.

Now I am sure you are ready to see more JustRite inspiration using this new set..okay here you go:
