Blogger's Challenge: Gift Giving

This week's Bloggers Challenge (#70) was to make something that you would give as a gift. I made this little candle basket, which I plan on taking to my SIL's house this weekend when we visit.

I have a little confession: I struggle with this kind of thing. I usually approach them with a moderate level of dread, since I know that 3-D stamped things usually end up looking like a Kindergartner made them when they are crafted from my hands. I actually like this one, though.

The leaves were done using the Stamp Rolling technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter's 1st Edition CD. Stamps are from Close to My Heart.

I hope my SIL likes this little gift...
