Club Q Inspiration with Barb!

Hi!

It's Barb and I am here to share another project I made using the Quick Quotes June Club Q kit.

The original kit includes the supplies you need to make a house shaped mini album. I decided to take those supplies to make a gift.

Yesterday, we moved out of our house and handed over the keys to the new owners. I know they are moving here (Texas) from Georgia so I wanted to help make them feel at home a little quicker.  I made this gift set for them....

Inside the gift bag was a treat from one of my favorite places... Nothing Bundt Cake! Yummy!  And then I took what would have been one of the pages in the mini and made it into a cute holder for the tags.

The house on the front of the bag was the front cover of the mini album. I cut down the sides so that it would fit the bag and embellished it with the die cuts that came in the kit.

I cut out a vellum quote that was in the kit, adhered it to cardstock and then added some foam adhesive to give it a little dimension.

I also used foam adhesive to adhere the fence to the front of the house.

The pouch was created using a page from the mini album. I added the vellum quote to the front. It was the perfect thing to hold the tags I created. I love that is was quick and simple to create but looks like it took a lot of effort! Those are my kind of projects!

The first tag is a welcome tag. There is a pouch behind the scalloped edge that I put a note in. I included contact info for me and my husband in case we would have package/mail that we would need to get forwarded to us. (Last time we moved, we had a lot of mail left at the old house even though I had filled out the forward address thing with the post office. I am not taking any chances this time!)

This tag was made to give them information about people that we had used for the house. There is a pocket so that I could add the business cards of everyone who had worked on the house... the landscapers, pool company, window cleaners, etc.

This last tag was to help them find some of our favorite places to eat. I remember when we first moved to Texas from Indiana, we had no idea where the best places were to eat so I wanted to include this for the new owners. There is a pocket on the tag so we could tuck in the names and addresses of our favorite restraunts!

The June Club Q kit made this project so easy to make!
