Valentine Gifts

Hello friends & welcome visitors,

My great niece recently had to have some very serious surgery.  Unfortunately, she had her surgery at the same time I had my procedure.  I wanted to make her a get well card, but I just wasn't up to it.

I think of her every day, so I decided to make her a Valentine Gift.

Aren't they lovely flowers?  Guess what?  They hold a little secret!  Inside each flower is a tootsie pop!

Isn't this fun?  I was also thinking that this would be a very cute baby shower decoration.

This is a close-up of the embellishments, notice that I embossed the fence with my wood folder.

And since it is just as easy to cut two projects with my silhouette, here is another one.  I decided this one will go to my "pretend granddaughter" Megan.  I am going to give it to her from "her secret admirer" she loves that!

Recipe for these flower:
