Detailed Floral Framelits set~

 Hello Friday! I'm sharing with you today a group of projects that I made at another workshop recently that I had wanted to make for some time and finally got around to making! This is a tea light holder and candy holder (could hold 2-3 votive candles too) made with some scoring and using the Detailed Floral Framelits. 
 This one is half a piece of card stock scored and then the die lined up with the edges and cut.  You simply fold it up and tie it shut. I stamped the tag using the stamp set Candy Cane Christmas from the Holiday Catalog. I used Gold Satin Ribbon to tie it shut.
This candle holder is super simple to make. It is a piece of card stock cut to 4 x 8 1/4" and scored on the long side at 2,4,6 and 8.  Then on one short side at 2". Place the die in the center of each scored panel as close to each one and the bottom 2" score line without touching it. Then you will cut up to the 2" score line to make flaps to assemble your holder.
I added a piece of Gold Glimmer paper to hide a boo boo.
Well, I'm off to start swaps for OnStage Kansas City a week from tomorrow. So much to do so little time

Envelope Punch Board Boxes

 Good morning! Today I wanted to share the boxes I showed at my last workshop. I pulled out the Envelope Punch Board (because it's been neglected a lot these past few months) and showed my attendees how to much more with the EPB.  So, I decided the "half" cracker box was a good one to show. Simple and endless possibilities.  I wanted to also use the DSP, since it is ON SALE this month! I used the Candy Cane DSP pack for the first box. 
 For the fun tag on the front, I pulled out my Jolly Friends Bundle and made the santa and hat. I used the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter paper for the brim of the hat and then some Mono Liquid Glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter for the beard.  I added a sweet Mini Jingle Bell to the end of his hat and then tied the box shut with the Gold Satin Ribbon.
 This one I wanted to share that you can also use card stock to make them. I used the Emerald Envy card stock.
I used the Candy Cane Christmas stamps on this one. I stamped the trees randomly all over the box and then assembled it. I used the Layering Circles or the Dapper Denim layer and Whisper White for stamping the tree onto.
I tied this one shut with the Gold 1/4" Cotton Ribbon. 
I'm on my way out the door, so this one is short and to the point. As always, you can leave a comment or email me if you have any questions.
Have a super Thursday!

Football Popcorn Boxes~

 Tonight was officially the last night of football for 2016-17.  My husband coaches high school football here and every year they have a banquet with awards and speeches and gift for the managers and ball boys. So, every year, I am asked to make things to give to each of them and this year I was happy to make these "football" boxes from the Popcorn Box Thinlets. 
 These are the ones I made for the managers. I cut the popcorn boxes from Chocolate Chip card stock and then ran them through the Softly Falling embossing folder to give them the bumps that a football has.  (It's hard to see it in these pictures). Then I cut strips of Whisper White and attached them for the seams of the ball.  I stamped out the tags using the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set and using our school colors which are Orange and Black. I punched it out using the retired 2 1/2" circle punch and tied it to a cello bag filled with chocolates.
This one I did for the ball boys. I used the retired stamp set, Simply Sports and stamped the player in Soft Sued and the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie and die cut it out, and used Dimensionals to pop it up off the player.
