OCC fun with fruit

We've got one more group of inspiration photos from Kristin for the challenge at Our Creative Corner this week. This lovely fruit below sure does make you hungry, doesn't it?

The challenge this week is to make a project with a fruit image. I chose to make a tag (for a gift box that I imagine would include something to eat....) with a simple cherry.

I started by weaving some red/white strips of thin ribbon, and I placed it behind the die cut cherry. The front panel was stamped with some of the new stamps from My Thoughts Exactly (so cute!), and adhered with foam tape.

I hope you join us this week and play along with our challenge!


  1. Simply gorgeous Jen ... love that ribbon treatment on your gift box, what a brilliant idea and such a beautiful presentation for the gift ... and of course, I looove your cherry tag, love how you have incorporated the weaving in your cherry to reflect the ribbons on your gift box. Clean, simple and stylish .... great job!!!

  2. Jen this is stunning! I love the bold design and the woven ribbon is such a gorgeous accent on the gift box. Can't wait to try it out! Thanks for the inspiration today! That sweet sentiment made me smile, too. it's SO true! Have a happy day! :)
