Coupon Card

I just finished an order for a client and they requested a "coupon-type" card...this was my take on it...
I used the Movers & Shakers Zipper Die from Papertrey Ink.  I could totally see a little coupon book made with this die. Pin It

CRAFT FAIR...Just A Note

I still get excited when a plan comes together.  I bought these smaller note pads the other day and had an idea on how I wanted to alter them, but didn't image the finished project until today.  I am so happy with how these turned out...especially since Mother's Day is just around the corner and these can make such a cute addition to a gift basket.  Besides, I am always looking for a notepad to jot things down...now my notepad can look pretty as well.

CRAFT FAIR...Post It Holders

The second type of post-it holder is one that you can carry in your burse or bag.  I love making these.  I was able to find some great 3-D embellishments from Hobby Lobby & Michael's to complete them.

CRAFT FAIR...Part 2-Candy Tubes

I was so glad when PTI came out with a stamp that said "You Are My Sunshine".  That was a song my mom sang to the girls when they were babies...it has a very special place in my heart when I hear those little words.  I had bought some of these plastic tubes at Hannah's a few weeks ago and ideas started swirling in my head with ideas on how to use them.  I finally decided to make some candy tubes for the upcoming craft show...I took the words literally and die cut a sun out of cardstock and then embossed it to give it texture.  I filled the tubes with Lemonheads.  Quite honestly, they can very well be my favorite candy.  I also cut a circle of coordinating fabric and tied it to the top of the tube to...1. stop anyone from taking a Lemonhead & 2. to finish the tube and make it look pretty.

These will also be listed in the Etsy shop after this weekend...Have a good evening! Pin It

CRAFT FAIR...Part 1-Post It Note Holders

The upcoming month means one thing...the end of school for many kids.  The end of the school year also signals Teacher Appreciation gifts...what better way to say "thank you" to a teacher for a job well done than making a gift basket with some things for the upcoming year.  This year I am giving the teacher journal books again but I am also giving some coordinating items that they can use on their desks next year.  I made extras to sell this weekend at the craft fair.  I have a few different styles and sizes.  All of these come with a mini gel pen.



I also created a few post-it holders that are not teacher related.

These will also be in my Etsy store after this weekend as well.  Have a great evening..:)
