Did you know that today is Pi Day? (For all you non-math majors, the Greek letter π is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.) Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th (3/14). Pi = 3.14. . . .
As much as I love math (Cough! Cough!), I like to celebrate Pi Day a little bit differently. I made a quick and easy pie gift set that’s sure to sweeten someone’s day!
I found some clipart online and added text to create a printable card front. I then printed out the image onto various colors of cardstock.
You can find the pdf download here.
Once printed, I machine stitched a border around each card front and adhered the card front onto a different colored base. (Always stitch before adhering card fronts to the card base to prevent stitch lines from showing on the inside of the card.)
I added a little Glossy Accents to the pie image to give it a little pizzazz.
Glassine bags are always fun to use for gift packaging. I added a bit of washi tape to the opening and a little strawberry clip to the top to hold the bag closed. I added a clear sticker by SRM to a wooden fork to use in lieu of a gift tag.
Place it all in a tin and your card set will be as cute as pie!
I’d love to make your day a little sweeter too! I’ll randomly pick a winner from the comments on this blog post to win four sticker sets from SRM Stickers including the one below and a collection of Brights cardstock from Stampin’ Up!
