Heartfelt Creations DT Project - Candy Shaped Gift Holder and Giveaway Winner Announced!!

Dear All,
I am so super excited to present you my very first project as a Heartfelt Creations Design Team!
First of all I would like to tell you that I will try my best to post two styles every time. Since you can use these beautiful papers for Shabby projects as well. So I will be making in Original Colors and in Shabby Colors. Hope it helps.

Original Color Theme Box 2

Shabby Color Theme, papers used from the same collection!

Directions :
This is 12" long and 2" wide gift holder. But actual holding area is 4"x 2" which is the middle part of the holder.
This candy shaped gift holder is made out of 12X12 basic card-stock matches to the sunflower collection papers. Following some Youtube tutorials. But here are some pictures of step-by-step for you.

Tied both ends with raffia on the Shabby, Seam Binding on other two.  Twine to hang a tag from the same collection. Then decorated out side using this beautiful collection. I fussy cut the butterflies from the collection and used near the flowers.

I made these flowers followed by Emma's flower making video.
I have used Classic Sunflower Die and Classic Sunflower PreCut Set
to make these flowers as per Emma's video and made green leaves using Open Leaf PreCut Set and Classic Leaf Die
I also used one of the stamps from Classic Message Precut Set as a sentiment.
I have used some pink seed bead as center for shabby gift holder and brown stickles for Original color Gift box.
And finished with some pearl sprays and stamens.

Other Products list which I have used to make this project -

Big Shot, Pair of Scissors, Fabri-Tag Glue, Heat Gun
Scoring Board, Paper cutter, Square Punch, Foam Dots
