To continue on what seems to have become packaging ideas week…A couple of Valentine treatholders using the Petal Card die.  I got the idea on the right while perusing my local Target store!  Want to learn how to make this?  Call or e-mail me to schedule a special workshop today!

BTW-I hope to tape a video tutorial on how to make the one on the right in the next few weeks-stay tuned for an upcoming video tutorial post!

Bag with Scallops

I guess I'm in the packaging mood this week…here is a project made with the Bags w/Scallops die; Well Scripted Stamp set (Occasions mini); Sending Love DSP; Scallop Oval, Large Oval and Wide Oval punches; Window sheet; Very Vanilla Tafetta Ribbon

Baskets & Blooms alternative baskets

baskets & blooms alternative 1

I made this container using the Basket & Blooms die in an alternative way.

Products used:  Real Red and Pretty in Pink cardstocks; Real Red Ink pad; Sending Love DSP; With All My Heart stamp set (Occasions mini); Baskets & Blooms die; Scallop Circle, Scallop Oval and Large Oval punches; Build-a-Brad.

Want to know how to make the "flower"?  I just punched 4 of the scallop circles out of the DSP and then scrunched them.  Note: You can mist the punched paper with water first before scrunching so it looks a little more ragged (shabby chic) but I didn't for this sample.
