    I have been trying to download the template but it states that it is damaged. Any suggestions? No problem with others. Thanks in advance.

    This is lovely...simple, airy, Asian quality...and fresh idea! I especially love the double wrapped gifts. Anything that replaces the traditional, store-bought bows is a winner in my book!

    This would be fun on watercolor cards after painting the petals and maybe adding a few leaves.

    I love this idea you can really run with this in making cards. What ever the occasion you can use different cut-outs. Ex. Take a star and leave one side of each point uncut while you cut the other side. Thanks Martha for the great idea!!!
