Grand prize giveaway today!

Thanks to all of you who have been hangin' with me today! I have saved the best for last...of course! The grand finale is a surprise prize! Whoever wins this will be the 1st to see what's inside! All I can tell you is good things come in small diamonds I'm afraid! This sweet mini lunch box is packed with lots of Paper Treat goodness! You have my permission to ush & gush....and let everyone else know what they missed out on! teeheehee!

I'll have my 3 kiddos pick the 3 winners tomorrow after school! They LOVE doing that!
Last weeks winner of the paper posies was...........Noah's Mimi! Congratulations!

Maybe you have seen the felt squares in my store. I promised to upload this project several weeks ago......Well that's finally getting done :)
The second prize in today's giveaway is a felt frame kit! I have provided a tutorial below. You'll need an exacto type knife & hot glue gun. You could also use another glue, but I like the quick results with the hot glue! Although I don't have my cutting mat pictured, I did use one!

You can cut the entire inside of the felt square or leave a few of the curly cues behind, like I did with the yellow square. Cut the flowers apart to further embellish. I used the green flower as leaves.

Recycle those cereal boxes and use a 3.5 in square for the backing. I rounded the corners with my scissor. The photo needs to be slightly smaller, so I made it 3.25".

Use your hot glue gun along 3 of the sides. The top is open so you can slide in your photo.

Add a small amount of glue to your flowers. The mauve frame has 1 flower left in 2 corners, that I did not cut out. I used those to build upon with the other flowers. You can use a nice sharp scissor to cut leaves and pieces of the flowers.

Here is your little kit to make the 4 frames pictured. I have included ribbon and a few little flowers. 2 of the frames can be hung and 2 can go on the fridge. Just hot glue a magnet!

I promised not 1 but 3 prizes today! I'm going to do this in instalments. So you'll have to come back later to see the 2nd and 3rd prizes.
For the 1st prize, I have designed a trio of one-of-a-kind owls that are super cute! Here we have Ollie, Molly and Fred! hehehe! They would be adorable on a scrapbook page or a greeting card. They can be used as gift tags too! So the winner can let me know if she'd like string attached! They measure about 4"x5" each!

I'm also giving away this precious felt bag with 4 mini cards! CUTE CUTE!!

Have you been bitten by the OWL bug?
