This months g.c.d. facebook challenge was to use bows, ties, and bow ties. Bows are one of my favorites, which might explain my enormous ribbon collection!

There is nothing like giving someone you love a handmade gift. Here are two examples. Father's Day is right around the corner and I thought I would stuff this little pillow box full of fabulous gift cards for my hubby to let him know I appreciate him being a wonder father to our daughter. I decorated it to the tee with amazing g.c.d. products complete with a masculine bow.

My other handmade gift is a personalized portfolio that I plan on giving to my sweet daughter. She can store drawings and journal entries it, and save it for a special keepsake. It's easy and fun creating and altering with all of the fabulous products g.c.d. has to offer. You can see all of their awesome collections HERE.

Thanks for all your sweet comments!

Hi there, Laura!! Your projects are so absolutely gorgeous! Love, love that Father's Day pillow box. It's so elegant and classy and so perfectly masculine. Love that bird and the feather tucked in. And what a fabulous portfolio. I bet your DD is going to love it. Totally inspires me to make one for my DD...she would love one, too.
