Christmas Projects

I finally finished and delivered the projects I made for my Boo's school friends and teachers.  I made explosion boxes for the teachers and Snowman Soup for the children. 
Lets start with the teachers.  This first box is fairly simple made from green card stock and DCWV pattern paper. the gingerbread people I found a year or so ago and cant for the life of me find the link again. Sorry about the out of focus photos, I was doing this quickly before school.

The next box is made with DCWV glitter paper and hand stamped with snow flakes on the interior. The "cookies" were colored in PSE to look like they were frosted they are from Elizabeth Dulemba.  The doors, windows, and roof of the box are a patterns that I found at Little Paper Shop.  The house on the interior I found at Twelve 22, I then colored it with pencils.  I wanted to design one myself but ran out of time, and hey why reinvent the wheel?

I also colored a stone path and threshold from the gate to the house.  Both boxes were given with gift cards inside to Boo's teachers.
I then made "Snowman Soup" packets for the kids. Super simple and so much fun!  I designed a bag topper using images from Meljens Design here and here and snowflakes from my computer scrapbook program.
I made 24 of these each containing :
3 Hershey's kisses
1 bag of cocoa mix
5 mini snowman marshmallows
1 peppermint stick

Thats all for now thanks for looking!!!

Long time no blog...

I finished up my presents for my MIL and FIL made a girly birthday card and have been busy decorating my house for the holidays.
  First the present for my FIL.  I made a CD Case pencil holder using the same directions as in this post.
The only difference is the base.  I did not make a tray as I know my FIL won't be changing the pics.  I made a base of cardboard from a cracker box and covered it with black card stock.  I did the same for the X shaped divider, then hot glued them to the cube.

I made my MIL a card set and made mini magazine holders for them and their envelopes.  I found several tutorials but none were for 5x7 cards only smaller so I used several sheets of "ugly" 12 x 12 paper and figured out a pattern that would fit my cards.  Then I used purple and white card stock to make 2 files adhered them together using the side of one base under the other box, then glued a base of black card stock to finish off the bottom.  I then matted decorative glitter card stock from DCWV on the purple scraps from the top of the box to finish off the bottom.

And all together...
I forgot to take a pic of the birthday card but what do ya do????
My lovely friend Krisa nominated me for a RAK over at the TLC blog and I am so excited as I now can get some more sentiments for my OWH cards!!! I am thinking maybe some anniversary and Easter sentiments.... We shall see:)  OK that's all for now  I am making teacher gifts this week so look for more posts before Sunday!
Toodles and Happy Holidays!
