Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Today’s project is very exciting. It’s a very sweet Magnolia Gift Set that I created for my WOW Team Retreat, WOW Steel Magnolias. As you are reading this, we are wrapping up our final day of a four day Team Retreat. Hoping to share lots of photos and highlights from the weekend soon. But, in the meantime, my Magnolia Gift Set is just one of many projects we completed this weekend.

All my WOW Team Members and their guests created the Magnolia Gift Set. During our retreats, team members volunteer to teach a project. My contribution was this lovely Magnolia Gift Set. This sweet, very easy to assemble, box will hold at least three to four of the cards and envelopes shown.

The Magnolia Lane DSP is the star of the show. One pattern is just as lovely as the next. It made it hard to choose which one to use. But, as you can see I finally decided.

To make the sentiment really stand out, I decided to incoporate some heat embossing. I just love that technique. It’s really quick and easy, but packs a WOW punch.
