Project Finally Finished

I finally finished my placemats and we are using them daily now. They are so much cheerier and brighter than the ones I made years and years to finish the matching napkins...maybe on spring break in 3 weeks!!!

In retrospect: Star Box

Forgive me for the tardiness of this post. The holidays were a whirlwind of activity. I had my annual cookie party in December and I needed a container for my shares. I found this little box on Pinterest in December and made a dozen of them. I scored my Stampin' Up! Real Red cardstock with my scoring board.  I used my favorite tool at the moment, the envelope punch board, to punch the top section of the box where the ribbon laces through. I embossed little stamped stars in silver, tied it closed with silver SU ribbon, and ended up making little tags to tie onto each box as well. I was able to fit a half dozen cookies in the boxes, inside clear bags. They were a hit! Thanks for looking!

Say Cheese!

That title was cheesy, I know.(wink wink) But I made my daughter a little camera album for Christmas to recap the year...and she loved it! I used my envelope punch board to cut the camera shape out of cardstock as well the pictures. I used my circle framelits to cut the silver glimmer paper lens rings and the acetate lens itself. Everything is Stampin' Up! Pretty easy, really! Thanks for taking a look!
