It is time for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge!  This week's challenge is to create a gift for giving!  Check out the link to find out how to play along!

I made a few Prayer Pillows.  The idea came to me from the tooth fairy pillows, but I think having some prayer pillows to give to some of my daughter's friends is a good idea, too.  The idea is to write down your prayers, tuck into the pocket, pray about it, and hang from nightstand or bedpost.   I designed these prayer pillows using felt.  I cut assorted colors at 4 1/4" squares.  I cut out the ODBD tag die cut in various colors of felt to create the prayer pockets.  I cut each tag to create a different color base with overlapping flap.  I stitched the pockets on first.  Then, I stitched squares and stuff with stuffing.  I added coordinating grosgrain ribbon for handles.  I finished with a button and red and white twine bow. 

As with any gift, a nice gift tag is needed.  I once again used the ODBD tag die cut.  I  used the Mistletoe Tag stamp set for the frame and for the "homemade with love" sentiment.  I used the ODBD Poinsettia background inked in toile pink and sprout green to create a subtle background design.   I attached with some fun organdy ribbon. 

My project today is for a few other blog challenges!
