I have loved my envelope and box punch board ever since it first came out and when they came out with putting both the envelope and the box on one punch board …priceless…however if you have one of those nothing changes in the directions I have a tip…..it is be sure you open the bottom leg on the board so that you can embossing all the way down.
Next I love this design a lot because it makes use of all those WONDERFUL DUPLEX 6X6 SQUARES…and you can make 4 out of a 12×12 square… plus what a clever idea to make holiday tags for gifts …. as she points out they are quick and relative easy and everyone one would love to have lovely special tags for their packages… My BFF, Pamela, is the most amazing package wrapper /decorator… her packages look so amazing you don’t even want to open them… they are gift all on their own…so I can’t make to make up some special tags for her to add to her packages…I think she will really enjoy them. Since my idea of wrapping is usually just a bag I will make some for myself as well and kick up my bags a notch….
Here is the link to the video and tutorial...SCS MINI FILE BOX..
You know that these could also be tags to use on the front or even the inside of a card or actually as a card themselves… they don’t have to be holiday tags they could be birthday , get well, anniversary, etc…so just keep that in mind.
Now I am not sure this actually counts as EYE CANDY ..but I am child of a woman who was and incredible seamstress… as a child every year for christmas I got a lovely Madam Alexander doll. Now the dolls always came with an outfit ..maybe a bride doll or fancy evening dress …but my Mom would make me a special dress for christmas and she would also make the same dress for my doll so we had matching outfits and she would also make other matching outfits for us both… as I grew older my mom made my first prom dress and several others along the way…so you can imagine that when I took home economy class in high school you would think I did well in the sewing section…NOPE…I managed to cut out a dress with both sleeves on the same side of the dress… I should have gotten an F on the project but since no including myself could figure out how I did it I was given a D for creativity…lol… anyway sewing was never part of my crafting … however I recently saw a really cute table runner and I had bought some amazing material in Alaska ( thinking I’d have someone else sew it for me) so the pattern and people at the quilt store helped me figure it out… My WA BFF STEPHANIE said its easy… well she didn’t know my history…however this so called 10 minute pattern took me a week… lol. but I finished it today so I am so proud of myself and because Stephanie assured me I could do it… bought more material to make some more of them for christmas presents… so here it is…This fabric came from a wonderful QUILT STORE in SKAGWAY..and its called BATIK type fabric…
OK that’s it for this week… hope you enjoy… AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY...wire headed cyber toad… aka kath
