Any Size Circle Scallop Tutorial

 This instance I used the 2 1/2" circle punch, 1/2" punch, 3/8" punch (from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack)
First, punch the 3/8", then over that punch the 1/2" punch to create a ring. It took 15 rings.  Then I ran adhesive around the edge on the back, and glued the rings on.

     On a 1 3/4" it took 11 rings

Large Post it Pad Cover

I bought the 4x6 Post it pads and had them cut it half . I found velcro dots at Lowes that are paper thin.  The ones in the craft stores are way to thick for me. I used it under the red satin ribbon as a closure. To attach the ribbon, just tuck it under the layers on the left side, wrap it around the back and secure with a velcro dot on the front.

Instructions

I had a very sweet friend tell me that I neglected to put instructions on my projects.  So I went back to a few projects I have done lately and added them or I put the link to where I got them.  After all we are sharing right?  I hope you are inspired by something I do just as I am inspired by all of you!!!  Hugs!!

My Light Box

 I have been working on my pictures for my blog, trying to make them look more professional. 
 This is a cubby in my Expedit Bookcase.  I used a roll of paper taped on the back top then rolled it down and taped down to the front.  I also used the cardboard that comes with our SU DSP  to line the sides.  I also have a clamp light clipped to the shelf above.  I  used a 75 watt Daylight lightbulb from Lowes.
 This is really convenient because I don't have to set it up and take it down every time I'd like to take a photo.
This is with the light on
Finished photo If you would like to make this cute box, go here.  I did make adjustments to the size of the belly band, 2  1/2  x 8  1/2 , because I wanted to cover up the tissues completely.

3 Piece Gift Set

Front
I put this gift set together, with a card & envelope, tag, and bow. 
(Thanks Sandy for helping me with the packaging!!)
 Back
Tutorial for bow here.  I found it easier though, to put a large brad in small center ring and add petals outward then just close brad.
