Tutorial - Get Well Soon Soup Holder

We are knee deep in cold and flu season, and there are little sickie bugs going around everywhere. Here is a tutorial for a little "care package" to send to wish good health. (You will need one of those chicken soup mix packets from the grocery store).

Cut 12x12 cardstock to 11"x 5.5". Keep that 1" strip on the side.

Score it at 2.75" and 7.75"

Take your scrap 1" strip and adhere it to the top of your soup envelope packet.

Trim off the overhang on the left and right edges. Set aside.

Color your Rubber Romance stamp (Bunny Girl), and set aside.

Now, take your scored card, and adhere something to that left edge to give it some interest. I added a paper frill. Adhere a large flower, then on top of that, a button to the right flap. Adhere another button to the left flap. These buttons will be the base for your string tie closure for the packet.

On TOP of those buttons, now adhere two more flowers.
Embellish those flowers with anything you want to. I used more buttons.

Weight it down with something heavy til it dries.

Take your soup packet, adhere to the inside of your card, and add the cooking instructions.

Adhere your rubber romance image to the left side of the card. Use twine to close the packet just like a regular string closure (wrap one end of twine around left button, wrap other end of twine around right button)

Here's the finished project. Enjoy. Thanks for stopping by today. Wendy
