Valentine's Day Snippet Roll Swap

I joined JoAnne at
for a fun Valentine Swap.

I decorate a craft paper box and tag to present the snippet to my swap partner,
(Be sure to visit Michele,
she has a post with pictures of the beautiful snippet she created for me.)

This is a shot of the snippet in rolled-up form.
The ring at the end of the beaded chain 
slips over the end of the driftwood to hold everything secure,
you can see it a bit in the last photo...

...and then, it becomes the hanger for the piece.

You can see the hanger better here.

I did not get super Valentine-y on this swap.
My interpretation was to use beautiful feminine touches
and bunches of hearts.

I included a pair of wings for cupid too.

Thanks so much to JoAnne for hosting another wonderful swap,
and to Michele for the beautiful snippet she created for me.

This is beautiful. One of these days I'll make a snippet roll and be ready for a swap. I always find out about snippet roll swaps AFTER the grand event.

I am so in love with Snippet rolls and yet I have not created one. Yours is beyond gorgeous. Your crystal chain to secure and display the roll is brilliant. I am having the vapors over this beautiful creation dear...

You inspired me to make a Snippet Roll, too. And I used a lot of the items from the Valentine assortment you sent. Good stuff! It's on my blog- come visit if you get a chance.
