     Well, I haven't lived up to my plan to post regularly, but I couldn't pass on this one.  Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog is hosting a Mother's Day Challenge.  See it here:
     I don't expect to win the challenge.  I just want to share how easy it is to make fun favors when you have great tools. 
     I recently posted a comment on a FB page that Cheery Lynn's Flourish Leaf Strip is my all time favorite die.  So detailed!  Cuts several at once!  It's just way cool!  Anyway, I used it for the Mother's Day favors for church that I have been working on this week.  The first two pictures show ones on which I used Cheery Lynn Designs Cutie 2 for the roses.  Fantastic!

I made many more, and I did use the CLD leaves on all of them.  However, I made other flowers just for variety.  The tag is made with Fiskars XXL Tag punch and a computer generated sentiment.  I covered wrapped Twix bars with a 1/4 sheet of a handmade paper that Costco sold about 5 years ago.  I finished the ends using my Fiskars Crimper and Fiskars pinking shears.  I hope the ladies at church enjoy them.  They were made with love.   


  1. Wow what a colorful selection of favors. So bright and cheery. The leafs and roses really add to them. Thanks for joining us in the Cheery Lynn challenge. Good Luck to you
