  1. Both very cool projects. I nearly passed out at the sight of the hessian flower though, I've just finished cutting 400 hessian pennants for my sister's wedding, and I now look at hessian with fear and dread lol! The metal closures are gorgeous! Creative Blessings, Tracy x

  2. Fabulous projects the box and hessian flower and love your mini album..congrats on your GDT too..
