The 3 X 3 squares idea is one I've used many times, but the sketch included something different in the bottom corner. So, I stamped an Anna Griffin butterfly all over the 9 scalloped squares of mint green cardstock that I had lined up in rows. Then, I stamped another in navy, added glitter gel pen and cut out. The single butterfly is adhered with mounting tape.
The 9 squares were adhered to a piece of upcycled paper bag and then to the gift bag. The 3 X 3" gift card got the same treatment, with a stamped butterfly seemingly a shadow of the cut-out one.
I thought the design just needed a small jewel to be complete.
Later, I walked to the bank and then the farmers market, where I loaded up on fresh veggies for my salad tonight. I finally passed by this little shop when they were open so that I could take a photo with the "junk" outside. I haven't been inside yet, but it's a cute addition to the 50th and Xerxes antique shop area. My only regret is that I never took a photo of the tiny building in its former life as a barber shop, complete with striped pole.
