And it continues...

So I am still going on with more Craft Fair Items! I made a lot and I don't want to cram the blog with them all at once! The next item I just love! I got the new Petal Cone Die from Stampin' Up! and love it! I sat down with it and wanted to do something where I could take a piece of DSP and just put it through once and have exactly what I need. For a normal petal cone you needed two, to paste together. Well, one crank through the Big Shot - a little Sticky Tape and whalla!! I love this because it took half a sheet of DSP - one crank through the Big Shot - and I had everything I needed! I did add a little tag - but it was totally not needed. I just used the flip side of the DSP to do the accent pieces. And I added a button, brad, or sticky gem. If I used brads, I didn't need tape to stick the flag on - but with the buttons and the gems, I used sticky tape to hold it on.  These are all I have left!


I also made some adorable pencil containers for Easter. The decoration on the front is an eraser! I got the template for making the box from the fabulous Southern Stamper (thesouthernstamper.blogspot.com). I love these and will be using what I have left/making more for my students as their Easter surprise - so shhhh! When the cardstock was cut out but not together yet  I used the same color ink pad and stamped it using Holiday Blitz Easter stamp and Teeny Tiny Wishes Easter Stamp. Except that one So Saffron box - I did use a bit of Melon Mambo on it!
More later/tomorrow!
Craft on!

  3. Oh my gosh Victoria! I never received an email that you posted a comment, I am so sorry if you think I have ignored you! I never received any friend requests either. I just sort of stumbled upon your message. Perhaps because it says you are anonymous? If you receive this message please contact me again!
