Hey All! HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!! I hope the luck of the Irish has been with you all day and for the rest of the year! I have a lot for this post tonight, so I'm going to get right to it!
I've been on a creative streak these past couple of weeks. I'm still working on my "easel box" and will have it ready for next Wednesday's post. However, there are other things that I have designed that come from my head and ready to share with you tonight. Here they are:
Coffee Bag Holder
This is the front of it. To give you an idea what it reminds me of, it's like a giant matchbook. Here is the side view:
And here is the view when it is open:
You may notice that the "open" picture has a different punch border! LOL It is a picture of another one that I made that will be shared below. Here are the other two that I made:
They are really quick and easy to make. I simply measured the bag of coffee and then cut a piece of card stock to cover it with enough of a flap to bring over the front. I then decorated the fronts, used various border punches to make the border on the flap, and then used a hole punch to punch a couple of holes to run a piece of ribbon through to keep them closed. The coffee bag itself is adhered to the inside with glue dots to keep it in place. I love how these turned out and how easy and fast they were to create. These would make great items to put into a gift basket
The next project I wanted to share was a note card set I made. Remember the physical therapist who sent me an email with help with Gunther's injury? Well, I wanted to do something to thank her for her help. She had mentioned in a comment about how much she enjoyed my House Mouse colored images, so I decided to do a note card set with them. Here is the set, the box, and each individual card in the set:
I did the card set in Spring colors. Again, I used that "Memory Box" found on Gina K Designs' that I highlighted on a previous post. This once again proves how very versatile this box is. All four of the note card image panels are raised with foam tape. So even with the thickness of the combined cards and envelopes, they fit perfectly. Below is the card I sent along with this gift. In it, I played on the image and said that it was thanks to her that Gunther was on the "Mend".
I just got an email from her that she received them and she was so pleased with them. I was happy that she liked them.
That's it for now. Next Wednesday, I'll be showing a ton more, including highlighting a very generous blog friend that blew me away with her generosity. Part of what I have to show you next week is what I made for her, so until I know she has received them (should be tomorrow) I'll wait to do it all at once!
Again, thanks so much for coming by. I love that you come here to see me. I know how much effort and time it takes, and I am humbled that you think my stuff is worth it. I'll be by to see what you've been doing in the next couple of days. As always, I get my inspiration from all of your wonderful work! Can't wait to see what you've done. Don't forget the "Pic of the Week" below!
Stay well and take good care of yourselves!
