Get it? Under wraps! Like wrapped, like a present.
This is the present I gave my mom and dad for Christmas. We visited them at their wonderful home on Lake Ontario this past summer. I spent about 15 minutes zipping around taking pictures of stuff around their house. You may remember I posted them on my blog (and got lots of nice comments, thank you very much!) in September. That was when my parents were away on a trip and wouldn't likely be reading my blog. Since them I've re-dated that post to hide it back in the archives. Anyhoo...
I ordered some snaps from Shutterfly. Cropped them with my paper scissors and sewed them right onto my prefused foundations layered with batting. I sketched a little of a design and decided how many pages I would have. I did 6 pages -- that's 12 sides.
Each side has batting. So it's pretty study and stands by itself. I think it would look nice sitting on a mantle or coffee table, but begs to be handled!
Then the embellishing and stitching. Including rocks from just down the stairs in my parents' back yard.
It came together really well. It was a delight to make.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and that you gave and received many wonderful gifts!
