Gift Boxes

Sorry I haven’t posted lately, this time of year is crazy as you probably know!

I’m getting ready for my next and final craft show of the season.  It’s going to be Dec 7th in Lexington Mass.  Here’s the info



Lexington, MA 02421

I purchased a bunch of the gift boxes that are in the main catalog.  They are GREAT boxes. Sturdy and a nice size.  I wasn’t sure how I could present them to sell at the craft shows.  I’ve had 2 shows with them and no one has bought them.  Then today, I was getting ready for the show and realized I had bought a “boat load” of Ghiradelli chocolates to wrap.  The though of wrapping 30 of them was a bit over whelming. I looked over at my boxes and thought that the squares would fit in them perfectly. And they did!  The gold paper looks beautiful with the Cherry Cobbler as well.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Elf Box

Well, the Grinch box didn’t materialize, but I think I nailed the Elf one!  I was driving home from delivering an order and I was trying to think of how to make an elf box. I just didn’t want to do the belt buckle. But then, my elf bag came to mind and I ended up with this. It’s too stinkin’ cute!

Candy Boxes

Just looking for different craft show items.  These were so fun to make! They are made with the retire Fancy Favor box. I’m working on a Grinch one, but I might end up with an elf suit instead. The reindeer ears are from the Sizzix Die Bigz Autumn Accents die. The Santa tag is the Ornaments Keepsakes Frame Lits and the bird punch!

Rosette Christmas Tree

One of my team members got me turned on to these rosette Christmas Trees. You can find the instructions here from this talented lady!

I made 2 of them.  The big one is all the layers in Susie Moore’s tutorial. The smaller one is the last 9 layers of her tutorial.  It takes a lot of paper.  You really need to make sure you have at least 1 dark layer alternating. In the smaller tree, I used 3 different patterns, a light, medium and dark one.  On the bottom, I put a painted dowel to lift it off the table a bit.

Thanks Karen P, you got me hooked on these!  I’m going to try a white one next week.  If it turns out ok, I just might do a class on it! Only if enough people ask me too…

Fancy Birthday Cards

My mother lives in a retirement community and one of her friends buys a lot of cards from me.  She asked me to make a special card for one of her friends. She said that her friend keeps all the cards I’ve made that have been given to her!  She’s a “Card Worthy” gal!

This is just a 5 x 5 card made with the Stippled Blossoms set.  She loved it!
