Stampin' Sisterhood Mother's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Sisterhood Mother's Day Blog hop!  Today we hope to inspire you with Mother's Day/Spring creations using stamps from Rubbernecker.  We know we're a little early (Mother's Day in the US is May 13th this year)  but we want you to be ready!!!
 
For my project,  I made two little lavender sachets using these sweet 3"x4" organza gingham bags from Pouch Mart and some dried lavender that I purchased at Pickity Place (a garden shop).  I embossed the butterflies in black and colored them with Copics.
I stamped the sentiment punching it with a 1 3/4" circle and layering it off center to a  punched scallop circle.
I adhered the sentiment to the bags with ScorTape to be sure it would stay on - and adhered the butterflies with a thick foam tape to add some dimension, curling the wings back a little around my finger.  Then I added some rhinestones to the sentiment and the body of the butterflies.

Wouldn't these be lovely to tuck in a drawer (wrap in tissue to protect clothes from possible oil seepage) or to hang in a closet to keep it fresh smelling!
