Happy Thursday- we are having a storm system sit here- it was raining all day yesterday and now again today. Kinda hope it ends soon, I have some running around to do and I don't feel like getting soaked while doing it. Better rain then snow tho!
I have been purging my office this week- like I didn't have enough to do- I decided to try to reorganize it to make it easier to use things- I have lots of stuff I just don't pull out to play with enough. I'm also finding lots of fun stuff I had tucked away- and of course right when I have my table stacked full of stuff-threatening to topple- I feel the overwhelming urge to create! or perhaps it was the overwhelming urge to stop dealing with my plethora of stuff and hide from it.
ehh- I'll go with the first one! LOL!
I found some awesomely cute Doodlebug stickers and tags, and made these cute wraps for some candy I wanted to give the teachers.
Now I don't have pics of the process- but I assure you- they were so simple to make!
I simply picked out my materials- Bobunny cardstock and ribbons, WRMK eyelets ( i used the cropadile tool to punch and set the eyelets) Bobunny paper- from the sweetie pie line, Doodlebug stickers and chipboard, and some buttons and twine, and a few brads.
I used some treat bags I bought at the craft store- folded them over and stapled them- because they were wayyyy too long for my treats-
the treats- are Junior Mints Deluxe mints- they are shaped like chocolate covered cherries- but basically are whopper junior mints-
"Who's gonna turn down a Junior Mint? It's chocolate, it's
peppermint-- it's *delicious*!"
name that show!
Now for the instructions-
cut a 11.5x4 piece of cardstock, measure from bottom, and mark at 4.5 and 6 inches, then again, mark at 10.5 inches. These will be your scored lines- go ahead and score them. I used my Scor- It tool and it was great, so easy. Fold your two lines- the ones at 4.5 and 6 inches, those will be the bottom of the wrap. The top fold is the flap- glue that down or leave it open- up to you.
You can also put in your eyelet at this point- then you can thread your ribbon through it.
now decorate it- soo simple.
I also worked on Heidi's bonus sketch at 2sketches4 you this week. Here is my take on her sketch- I veered off somewhere in the middle, but it was a great sketch- I guess I got distracted. Paper is Crate Paper and Scenic Route, tear out is Making Memories, ribbon is Anna Griffin and Bobunny, bird is Martha Stewart, letters are MAMBI and MM.
I also made this card this week, wanted to do something bright and fun- sorry for the lousy dim pics - it's cloudy here. SEI paper, some Hambly prints acetate, Queen and Co. felt, bobunny and MM letters, bobunny ribbon . My usual button and hemp. I added gems to the flowers which I really like that look.
thanks for stopping by- wish me luck in getting most of my mess cleaned up by tomorrow!
have a great day!
