Happy Birthday

Happy Monday to you.  Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Did you do any Black Friday/Thursday Shopping?  I went to Michael's and Joann's Friday Morning about 8am and it was't bad at all.  That afternoon I notice I was charged full price for one of my items so I had to go back to Michael's to get a refund.  Since I was at Michael's and I just happened to have the 40% off everything NOT on Sale coupon only good for the afternoon I purchased more stuff.  I would have saved money had I just kept the one item at full price and not got a refund....haahaahaaha

Today's card is a birthday card I made for one of my sister-in-law.s birthday.  When I took the pictures the lighting was not good so I didn't capture the true colors of the card. 
This is a fun fold Card using a punch for the edges. 

This picture shows a little more the green and purple colors.  

The paper is a packet from Heartfelt Creations.  

I touched up the paper with a touch of glitter. 

This is a tag I added to the inside. 
Sorry about the poor pictures.  Hope you have a great week!

Eat Beef!

Happy Thursday to you.  Today I am sharing the cupcake toppers I made for my Church breakfast a couple of weeks ago.  I should say the ONE topper I made because I ended up using pre-made turkey embellishments.  I was looking in my Fall/Thanksgiving bin and came across these felt turkeys.  Since I was short I time I ended up with only one homemade turkey.  

This is the one Turkey I made using punches and a
colorful napkin. 

The ladies at the church bake sale thought they
were funny.  
You all have a wonderful weekend.  Don't work to hard prepping for Thanksgiving.

Just Because

Hello!  Hope you all had a good weekend.  Today I am sharing a card I made for a friend who loves purple and butterflies.
A die cut and punches were used to make 
all the embellishments. 

Hope you have a wonderful week.

More Tea Holders

Happy Thursday. Here are the other tea holders I made. You could alter these tea holders and make them money or gift card holders instead. They measure 7 x 4 when closed and 7 x  8 1/2 when open. 

The tree on the left was a gift tag and the
Happy Holidays is a sticker. The other tree is a
stamp from Close To My Heart.
 All the sayings are also from CTMH.

Both of these were made using die cuts. 

Here is one with money inside the pockets. I was
thinking you could put a clear pocket and fill it with
money. You could customize these for birthdays,
graduations etc. 
Now get out your crafting supplies and made some Christmas tea/gift card holders. Just type "Tea Holders" on Pinterest and you will find all different kinds you can craft.  Happy Crafting.

Tea Holders

Happy Monday! I was able to stay home this weekend and craft. Yuppie! My sister-in-law had asked for the instructions of these Tea Holders.  After sending her the instructions I decided to make a few myself. Last year I sold these at two different craft fairs and they all sold out.  
On the outside I stamped Snowmen and used
markers, glitter and ribbon. 

This is the inside.  On the right is where the tea is
inserted into the pockets. I only had "Lipton" tea on hand
but there are lots of colorful teas you can purchase
to coordinate with your projects.  

This is my favorite snowman.
He is so cute he makes you smile. 

Inside on the left side I added a tag/book marker in
each one.  I made belly bands to insert the tag.  

The mittens are a die cut.  Sorry not sure who the
marker is. I borrow die cuts from my neighbor
 Heather and cut away before I return the die
leaving me with little bags of embellishments.

You all have a wonderful week.  I will share the other four tea holders later this week! Thanks for stopping by.

Tea Wreath

Good Morning! Happy November to you. Today I am sharing a tea wreath/gift holder I made. It was a last minute idea and my first attempt  at a "Tea Wreath".  I have lots of other ideas running around in my head. I want to make some Christmas themed holders so I will be sharing those with you soon. 
The wreath itself is cardboard. Using round plates
 I cut out the wreath and covered it in butterfly paper. 
 This picture makes it look  as if the center is not even
 but it is....Or was it???

I glued matching pattern paper to the clothespins and 
attached them to the wreath.  I cut out butterflies
 glued them to the wreath and added some bling. 

I used ribbon as a handle to hang the wreath
Tea was added into each clothespin. 

A gift card was added to the top of the wreath.

This was a gift to one of the ladies at my TOPS group for losing weight for 8 weeks in a row. Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you have a super great weekend!!!

Happy Fall!

Are you enjoying the Fall weather? This is my favorite part of the year with all the beautiful colors, cool weather and Holidays on their way.  Thanksgiving is just around the corner so I thought these cute little scarecrows would be a nice decoration to the Thanksgiving table. 

Have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by.
