HAPPY H{IPPITY} HOP MONDAY!! - April 12, 2010

This week a made a postage holder.  As you may have figured out by now, I LOVE swaps.  When you send your items to the hostess you also have to include postage for the "swapped" items to return to you.  A fellow swapper had the idea to make the holder pretty to serve as a gift to the hostess.  I must say, I love this idea.
Stamps:  Regal Greetings
Ink:  Gold Embossing Powder
Paper:  American Crafts Black Cardstock, DSP- something I had on hand
Misc: 7 Gypsies Velvet flowers, 10mm Bazzill brads, pocket and tag were made from Cricut cart - Tags, Boxes, and More, Marvy corner punch
Here are some close-ups:
Thanks for looking.  Make sure you stop by Morissa's Blog, she's next.
