This was a pattern Dawn posted and it was so cute and easy that I had to go cut paper and grab my punch board and make it in bed (it was 6 am and quite chilly 46) so I just wanted to share it with you…it would need a cushion envy or a priority small box  to mail but you may want to give one to someone close…I had company coming so I made them,.. up put in chocolates and placed them on their pillows…just like fancy hotel…lol. Any way watch the video and the get started…oh they will hold either one reese’s peanut butter cup or two ghirdelli chocolates.

Pinwheel box with envelope punch board 

Hint..if you don’t already have THE ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD…



BEFORE you go and buy one at AMAZON or Michaels..or Jo Ann’s you might want to consider using your coupons and looking for the new one they have out that is 123 PUNCH BOARD…



It is about 10 dollars more but it makes boxes as well as envelopes and bows….pretty cool…and all the directions are in there and you can infect us it to make these little boxes and while its more you can use your coupon at MICHAEL’S OR JO ANN’S and get 40 or sometimes 50% OFF… of course that means they have to have it in stock and right now I did see one at my local Michael’s but it they are still clearing out xmas and valentines day you might want to wait a bit or make sure they have done their inventory..In any case they are great little tools and allow you to make multiple size boxes and envelopes and bows… I am not crazy about all the WE ARE MEMORY KEEPERS items but they have in my opinion hit a home run with these punch boards…and there are more… there is a pin wheel one and a bag one that I know of…all of good quality and all do just what they said they would do…just time to make your hubby or friend a mini candy box…. well ok you gotta hurry…

EYE CANDY..ok this first one I had to go look at it cause the title is HONEY CAN YOU MAKE ME SOMETHING (for that big wall)…it was too funny My hubby is great at cleaning up dishes and sink etc after I cook and does his own laundry and many other wonderful things but I have been waiting 8 yrs for him to hang this really cool ceramic frog on my lanai he bought the drill ( wall is cement) and the drill bits about 3 years ago so he has made some progress but the frog sadly to say is still in the paper bag it came in on the floor of his closet… good news it hasn’t broken …yet…lol  anyway this will make you smile if your hubby is also a sure I can but ya never see it….I want to get this guy an art room…

GIRAFFE TO ELEPHANTthis is just your basic illusion..HA…I can’t paint/draw or do magic AND THIS IS WAY BEYOND MY SKILLS.. I am sorry it isn’t showing it larger it was on FB and I know some can’t see FB so I went hunting on YOU TUBE and found it but you might need to see it couple of times before you see the change just from changing the angle…. it truly is amazing….

Ok that’s it again for this week…AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY..wire headed cyber toad…AKA kath
