New Finishes

I have been wanting to do a box finish, so I dug
up this piece I had stitched quite awhile ago. I
used Vonna's idea to use styrofoam. I think the
result was pretty good. It was also my first attempt
at a bow.

Then I wanted to try my hand at a floss tag
and teardropfloss holders. I used poster
board for some of the floss holders,
but decided that I wanted something
that might hold up a bit better.
So I bought some light weight plastic
that is used to cut out stencils.
The plastic worked real well.
I am happy with all of my projects this weekend.

Thanks to Staci for the floss tag tutorial and to Wawanna
for the teardrop floss holder tutorial.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and keep stitching.
