French Knot Polka Dots

My final Heart Prints candle cozy! I love this one too! I'm a little rusty on the french knots, but it was fun! Paper, felt, DMC floss, ribbon and buttons create another candle gift set perfect for any occasion.
The close up of the card heart reveals the punched out dots. I first stamped the heart with Adirondack Espresso, cut out and then punched away! Papertreyink ribbon, and buttons from my stash provide the finishing touch.
Thanks so much for stopping by! As you can tell the photos are not the best, unfortunately I have been having camera trouble! I was able to sneak in a couple of shots before my camera bit the dust. Now it is off to shop for a new one. So, I have been trying to do a little research. I don't relish the fact of having to learn a new camera, figuring it all out, and trying to get good photos, let alone shelling out the cash. I'll let you know what I find! Take good care!

These are just so cute! I went rummaging through my "stored stuff" and now have another box in my stamp room--full of jar candles to transform into small gifts for coming occasions this year. Now I just have to find my box of felt scraps! I hope you've been having lots of cuddle time with your new grandson.
