Girls Just Want to Have Fun Container Card Tutorial




The inside of the card reads "Live, Laugh, Love" and "Let the journey begin here"...this container card could be filled with little gifts, candy or any other little gift you want to tuck inside =D Here is how I made it:

First I took 4 sheets of 8.5x11 pink cardstock paper and with either a scor pal or I used the Martha Stewart scoreboard....score lines every 3/4 inch then accordion fold the papers like this:



I then took a decorative edge punch...the one I used was from Martha Stewart...punch one side of each of the four sheets 



 After you have folded all four sheets then you take a hot glue gun
and glue the bottom fold and the top fold to the corners....creating into a square frame....meshing the folds together like this:



Then embellish =D and I hot glued the bottom of this frame to another
8.5x11 sheet and scored it at the bind and at the flap that hangs over to enclose. I used a Friskers edger punch to make the scallop on the flap.




















Altered Project for Design Team






Wood Napkin holder

For my altered project...I purchased the top piece of wood at Joann's craft store and a 3/4 inch dowel wood rod. I purchased the bottom piece of wood at Home Depot and had them cut it to my size. I then used a drill to make the holes for my dowel rods and used ood glue to hold in place. I used tracing paper to make my pattern on the front and then used Delta acrylic paints to paint Trisha's bear design etc. on the front.

I made this as a napkin holder for when we go camping =D our napkins end up flying everywhere and we just put a pile of paper plates on top of them. 
Thought this would make a cute solution for them!

My Wish Layout LSHD Challenge

This weeks challenge was to use a LSHD paper piecing, ribbon, bling, and a song title/lyrics. 


Products Used: Lime Rickey by Basic Grey

My Wish By Rascal Flatts

Lyrics read: 
I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

But more than anything, more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
And you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
And you always give more than you take.

But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big

Altered Gift for Teacher

Last week I sadly missed Teacher Appreciation week with all thats
been going on and the putting our friends who had passed tragically, at rest.
Today I finally finished a little gift for the teacher =D I have a conference this Friday and thought I would give it to her then. I kept these really neat boxes from the Making Memories embellishment collections that I bought that came in these. This black box was from the Spellbound embellishment kit =D
Inside the box has four sections and I added little notes to each section with a little gift. The first one reads "You were mint to teach" and there is "Super Mints" tic tacs....the second reads "You really measure up" and there is a little tape measure tin with mints inside...the third one says " We are really stuck on you" and for this I made cute little band aid candies that I made from a candy mold....the last little box has a note that says "Just a note for the teacher" and the little note reads "The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book" =D
