Get Well Gift Pack

This little get well gift set uses one of the NEW hostess sets in the Spring/Summer 2009 Idea Book. The set is called Goody Goody Gumdrops and it is *so* cute! :) I found the idea for this get well kit at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. This is my project for our group's Christmas Shoebox Swap. We were supposed to have our party on Tuesday, but had to reschedule due to the weather. I'm actually going to have to miss the event now, as we will most likely be out of town, but I will still send my project!

This is a quick and easy little something to make for a friend who is under the weather. I started with a 3" x 10" piece of Gable Green cardstock and scored it as 4 1/2" from each end. I stamped the flowers in Basic Black ink on Whisper White cs and colored the petals with markers (Pixie Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Lovely Lilac, and Gable Green). I also added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the flowers for a little extra sparkle and I notched the corner using the Ticket Corner punch.

Next, I stamped the sentiment with Green Galore ink on Gable Green cs and punched it out with the Wide Oval punch. I placed this onto the Whisper White panel and trimmed off the top of the oval. I layered my Whisper White panel onto a Basic Black panel. I played my gingham ribbon around the holder and secured it with a small strip of SNAIL adhesive and placed the flower panel over the top.

For the inside of the holder, I randomly stamped the small heart with Green Galore ink and attached the tissue packet with two small strips of Sticky Strip on each short end. I added the cough drops with Mini Glue Dots.
