Challenge #103 at Glitter N Sparkle

So Sorry,
Last week was a bit of a bad one for me
I was not well at all. 
Which is why my project hasn't 
been put on till today.
Finally feeling much better thank goodness.

Last week I had some Biscuits,
Homemade Marbled Strawberry Melting Moments Biscuits
 to make for a friend 
and I wanted something nice to put them in.

So here is my project for the Week:-

The Theme at 
Glitter n Sparkle was:-
Include Some Pink

Strawberry House Digi Stamp 
from Gingerloft (at Stitchy Bear)
(one of our sponsors)

To began with I cleaned out an empty
Bisto Gravy container,
and Lined it with Tinfoil.
Using some Mid Pink Card
I cut it to size and wrapped it around the
outside of the container.

I then printed off the Image on
White DC Paper,
and coloured it in 
using my Promarker Pens.

Dusky Rose
Burnt Sienna
  Meadow Green
Pear Green
Cool Grey 2
Cool Grey 4
Cool Grey 5

I then Die-Cut the Image out using
the Largest of the Majestic Labels 8
For the Label I used the 2nd Smallest Majestic Labels 8
and cut it out of the Mid Pink Card.
and using some White DC
I drew round the inside of the small die,
and Cut it out by hand to make the insert,
and I went around the edge with my Dusky Rose Pen.
Then hand-wrote on the 
'Strawberry Melting Moments'.

To finish my Card off I added
hand-made a fancy bow
made from Pink Organza
which I added to the Lid.

It is very simple to make this Bow.
Using Ribbon at least 20mm wide,
just fold the ribbon around its-self,
(8-10 times)
at the width you want your bow to be
(I used my four fingers on my hand).
then using a pair of sharp scissors in the middle,
cut a V shape towards the middle 
of the ribbon on each side.
Tie it tight where the two points face each other
(I used a Tie wrap)
and then start spreading the Loops out.
Start at one end and pull and twist them 
to the Left then the Right alternately,
and then repeat on the other end.
Finally fluff and tweak the ribbon
till you are happy with the result.
