I like the look of the paper bows I'm seeing everywhere, so I wanted to give it a try. I think they're hard to make. There has to be any easier way to make them. Once I get serious and need to make more, I'll do some searching to find the "easy" instructions. :)
I'm so glad I purchased the five point 3-D star from the Stampin' Up! clearance rack. Look how cute it is in my flower container! It dresses up my porch for the holiday. I'm so excited to use this die cut on future projects.
I noticed in the new catalog they have an extended version of the mini milk carton. I'm guessing on how it was done, so this is my version. I die cut two mini milk cartons then cut one of the four scored pieces off each die cut (the one without the small tab.) After that you fold and glue them together. It can be opened from either end if you're careful with the glue. :)
I often have projects I've started and didn't like or finish, for one reason or another. Usually I set the the bits and pieces of these projects to the side. This card is a result of several unfinished projects. It's great when I'm able to use all the unfinished items because not only do I create a new project, I clean up my work area at the same time! :)
A few days ago, my best stamping buddy, asked me to look at a picture of a cake made with Hershey Nuggets. She challenged me to figure out how it was made. Luckily, I can usually figure out how most paper crafts are made just by looking at them. This is my interpretation of the cake. Isn't it adorable!? It's probably one of the cutest things I've ever made! Can you imagine all the possibilities?!!
