Craftin’ Up Something Gifty!

76834_10152085028263232_1279811947_n (1) TGIF!  Well here we are a hoppin’ with Kiwi Lane Designs and I have have to say I had fun making this project with Fancy Pants Be Different Collection and KLD Tiny Brackets.  I found this cute 3D gift card box over at online Silhouette Store and went to town. This project was made for Admin Assistant Appreciation Day (a schmooze gift my hubby could give to some of the admin support around his office). However, with Teacher Appreciation Week this upcoming week this is an idea that you may want to put to use ASAP.

  • I cut the base out on American Crafts card stock folded and glued the joints together and inked the edges. I then and cut, traced and inked the bracket templates from the Fancy Pants Collection and adhered it to the base with my Xyron Mega Runner.
  • I added some sticker embellishments from the collection and a button with some baker’s twine.

  • For the insert, I lined it with some corrugated paper from Die Cuts with a View.

Teachers vs Cootie Monsters!

DTC-Designer

Happy Wednesday!  Today over at Decorate to Celebrate do you have a fun challenge that will help bring smiles to educators!  It is a teacher gifts or classroom party challenge.  How perfect is that?  It is getting to the end of the year and many of you all will have to start coming up with ideas for your kiddo’s teacher and class room celebrations!  The design team has a ton of amazing inspirations to glean ideas from!

Here is what I cooked up.  I am a 100% germ-a-phobe.  I think being so sick for all nine months during both of my pregnancies made it worse, so the thought of the stomach flu hitting our house just sends me into the fetal position.  Having teacher friends that teach in elementary school settings, they are about as bad as me, so I decided that any teacher of small children would love to receive this instead of the traditional apple.

This was actually so easy to make! I cut down some designer paper from Stampin’ Up and used my ATG to adhere it to the bottle of hand sanitizer.  I then took some ribbon and wrapped it around the bottle and used a Glue Dot to fasten it to the front of the bottle. Now for the fun part!  Heading over the the Silhouette Store, I found this Lori Whitlock tag (Circle Banner) with the pennants on it.  I changed up the size to be around 3 inches around and changed up the colors of the tag layers and pennants.  I then added the little saying I made up using  a font I found at the Silhouette Store.  I grouped together everything and printed out on my color printer and then cut out on my Silhouette!

How easy was that? You could whip out a ton of these babies in no time flat!  Head over to DTC and check out the inspirations and LINK up your own teacher gift/class room party idea!  I can’t wait to see what you have cooked up!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “keeping the cootie monsters at bay” pie with me!

Gotta Create – Wildly Original Linking Party! 

A Blooming Thank You!

Hello everyone!  As I was putting the finishing touches on this project last night, my craft studio shook and rattled for a split second, rolling my chair I was in across the room.  Yes, it was a 4.1 about 40 miles off the coast, yet I felt it.  Uggg… I dislike earthquakes terribly.

Now on to the project.  A friend wanted me to make something like these that she found on Pinterest.  I used Microsoft Publisher and printed these out on cardstock and then using the “Center” function on my Cricut Expressions, I cut these babies out.

I used party streamers and sewed the edges (like this tutorial) and made rosettes.  I had previously baked a whole set of ribbon making curly ribbon and used those as the finishing touches.

I am thinking I may enter this into the Die Cuttin’ Diva’s challenge this week – I feel they are different and original to fit their “Anything Goes Challenge“.

Now off to deliver them!

Thanks for sharing a bit of crafty time with a bit of rock, rattle and roll to it” pie with me.
