4 Projects






These are the projects we did at my Upline Sandy's Downline Meeting for October

Treat Box


Isn't this a cut box? It holds 3 Ghirardelli chocolates. If you would like instructions, you can find them here.  Just make sure you score on the correct side of the paper. If you follow her directions, I found I scored on the wrong side.(could be just me)

Waffle Paper Challenge



My Upline Sandy gave us a waffle paper challenge at our meeting this month. I really struggled trying to come up with something.  I saw this technique on Youtube.  Its called Iris technique. I thought the waffle paper gave this look so much texture and movement. Thanks for looking!

Top Note Card


Love Letter DSP, I did a quilted look on the top note.


Tissue Holder


This tissue holder is so cute.  I originally saw this on You tube, thanks, Stamp with Stephanie. Tutorial here.
  •  Chocolate Chip CS#102128
  • Baja Breeze CS#111352
  • Gala Greenhouse DSP#117167
  • 2" x1 3/8" Oval Punch #119859
  • Decorative Label Punch#120907
  • Modern Label Punch#119849
  • Word Window Punch#119857
  • Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad#100908
  • With All My Heart stamp set#118623

This would be great for your desktop, or dresser, I probably wouldn't throw it in my purse. I think it would be great to make a fabric tissue holder with our new Candy Cane Christmas fabric #121715.


Another Basket


I am addicted to making these baskets!!! They are so fun to make!

 I used Early Espresso and Real Red CS.

Top Note Business Card Holder

A while ago I posted my cute Top Note Business Card Holder.  You  need two top notes, one trimmed at the perforated line and adhere together, then score it at 1 " from the bottom and fold. I  used Tombow Mono glue for this project. For those who asked, here's the template. This is for the box part.
