Welcome to my part of Nicolette's Mom's Day Blog Hop. If you're following along the hop, you should have come here from Jamie's blog.
I had a different, more involved, project in mind when I started thinking about what I wanted to do for the hop, but ended up running out of time to finish it. So, these are my "back-up" projects.
The tea cup and coffee cup are both from the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge. These were my first attempts and I can see where they need a little "adjusting," but turned out okay. They actually went together easier than I thought they would. I cut the tea cup at 11" which made a good sized cup. The biggest I could get the coffee cup to cut on the Expression was at 6" and it turned out pretty tiny. I was only able to fit four of the Lindt chocolates in it. Maybe a little bag of jelly beans or chocolate covered raisins would fit better. I think they would be cute wrapped in cellophane with…
Welcome to my part of Nicolette's Red White and Blue Blog Hop. You should have hopped here from Robin.
I have a couple of different projects for this one. Tomorrow, two fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and I are hosting a card workshop with a Fourth of July Theme. I created these for door prizes.
The first project, a tea bag dispenser box, is from SVG Cuts Tea for You and Me collection. I used plain navy and red cardstock for the actual boxes and the patterned paper for the panels is from The Nantucket Stack by DCWV I bought last year. The ribbon is from Michael's Celebrate It line.
The second project, a match box, is a retired Stampin' Up! Sizzix die. I used cardstock for the base and the paper on the outside of the box is from the Stampin' Up Nautical Expedition designer series. I used the "Its A Wrap...Occasions" stamp set to create wrappers around Hershey Nuggets. The stars are actually from a different stamp set. Again, the ribbon is from…
Hey everybody! It's been quite awhile (years) since I've posted anything. Happy Independence Day! I hope everyone is enjoying time with their families and friends.
I've had several requests on my Facebook business page, https://www.facebook.com/beauandjolie/ of people wanting to know how I make my paper flowers. I do teach classes locally in the OKC metro area an am willing to travel.
I thought I'd start posting here again with instructions to easy flowers. I'm posting these for free, but have included my Amazon Affiliate links for the tools and supplies.
The most important thing you'll need is the paper molding tools from McGill.
Next, you'll need a padded mat to work on.
A flower paper punch will also be needed to get you started. If you don't have one, the EK Success Retro Flower Punch is a good versatile one to work with.
A glue gun is the easiest and quickest way to adhere the layers of your flower together. I prefer the Surebond Pre…
