I’m so excited to be able to kick of the Ruby Star Wrap-Along. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, there’s a bunch of bloggers each trying out projects from the book Ruby Star Wrapping by Melody Miller and Allison Tannery. I was so happy to get a copy of this at Sewing Summit! As I paged through I loved the Chinese Takeout boxes project, I knew they looked like fun!
I totally has a blast picking out fabrics and using my hot glue gun (that thing doesn’t get used enough!). It’s a quick and easy project, so if you’ve got a half hour, give it a try!
One thing about the book is that I love that the authors give you so many different options and ideas to try. For me, I always like choosing from different suggestions, gives a project a whole different look depending on what you choose! And of course I couldn’t stop making these little boxes, they’re addicting. Plus now I have a nice selection of wrapping for when I need to give a last minute gift.
I wanted to try making a mini version, it would be easy enough to do, just scale down the template. By the way, in the book they give you a link to all the templates from the book so you can easily print them. No more fumbling around at the copy machine trying to make sure everything fits.
Friday, Amanda of A Crafty Fox will be sharing her version of Jaimie’s Casserole Cover!
And you can also add your project photos to the Flickr Group!
