It seems like I have only been stamping cards, cards, cards….I haven’t done a 3D project in a long time! So I wanted to share with you what I finally made for my two club hostesses this month. I always save my little punchouts or bits & pieces of ribbon or embellishments that don’t make it on to my projects, and I like to make some sort of holder for them and “gift” them to my hostesses! Silly, but they like it (or maybe they’re just being polite!). For my first one, I repurposed the envelope that contained one of the framelit dies from SU. I keep my dies with my stamp set; I put them on magnet strips on the inside of the plastic box, so I don’t need the envelopes. I covered this one with some Orchard Harvest DP (sticky strip works great here) and added a Perfectly Preserved embellishment and a cotton ribbon tie:
I used some plaid for the flap:
You could use this for a nice little set of cards as well!
My second one repurposed an acetate box from something….can’t even remember what it was! I used a Halloween theme on this one with some characters from Googly Ghouls, a tag from Two Tags die using the Howlstooth & Scaringbone DP, and some retired ribbon:
I even made my own “seal” with a clear address label and circle punch!
The only kind of spider I like!!! I had fun making these and I hope my girls liked them!
Ahhhh…..imagine the sound of a metal ice cream scraper being banged on a bit metal lid!!!!
My eardrums are ringing! Enjoy your day!
