Well it was lazy, cause my back and neck are wacked. Probably stress, or lugging boxes and moving chairs around yesterday at Fall Fest, but no matter what it was, today I layed around most of the time. I have a degenerated disc in my back, and it is persnickity I have even put it out sneezing one time….fun stuff.
So luckily I have 2 fun little things to show you from Fall Fest.
This is a treat box, now we gave the girls a little votive holder and candle to display in it…JUST FOR LOOKS! This is not meant to actually burn the candle in it, it is paper and ribbon…we teased and told them they had to sign a waiver. It is actually for like wrapped candy, or Sharon Derr (hey girlie) said if you used those battery powered candles they would work………anything WITHOUT an open flame! I got this pattern from Splitcoast Stampers and my friend Beate did the tutorial. Gotta love her! I made it a bit smaller so that it would hold the candle that you are NOT GOING TO BURN IN IT, plus it was easier to score on the paper cutter this size. If you want to make one this size, just cut the paper 7 1/2 x 7 1/2" square and score it 2 1/2" on all four sides, and then cut your designer square papers to 2 1/4" x 2 1/4", and follow the tutorial for the rest of it. These are fun little treat boxes.
I saw these from my BFF Tracy, (love her…get a blog!!) we left them pretty plain except for the star on the top, just cause we were limited to time and we just basically wanted to teach them the idea.
How cute would it be to decorate the tree with brads, or dew drops or anything, and make a big one too and sprinkle some fake snow around and put them on your Christmas table?
This is actually 6 pennant dies (it is hard to tell from the picture) glued together, easy peasy. Slick as snot…yeah that's a gross saying, but true! Especially in the cold and flu season, Snort!!!
Added since post: since I had some questions on how the star was attached: I just punched two stars, and put a brad in the center of each. Then I put the stars together with a dimensional. Then take a straight pin and poke it into the foam of the dimensional, and then the head of the pin just gets glued inside the top of the tree where the papers meet together.
I also had people emailing me with questions about this tag…wanting to know where the third layer came from. I used the small and large tag punch for the snowman and baja breeze layer, and then I just glued it to some chocolate chip and cut around the tag with my scissors to make it bigger. In fact this is just glue dotted to the box and the ribbon just over hangs it, it is not even attached to the ribbon…ha! laziness…
Well this old woman is gonna go look up Rosati's Pizza phone number cause Jeff has a hankering for some pizza and I have a hankering for the couch and not cooking.
I also wanted to say a quick word to anyone that has ordered anything from Hanna Stamps! in the last week or so, please be patient with your delivery. Kristi, who owns Hanna Stamps! her Dad died unexpectedly so she has been dealing with her grief and taking care of her family, her Dad was very important to her and one of her best friends. Kristi does not have a staff that takes care of orders, it is just her, and I am sure her Dad helped her too. So any orders that came in, you can understand, did not get sent out. In fact, she was in the middle of getting orders ready to ship when she got the emergency call about her Dad, and she dropped everything to go to him. So please be patient and know that she is going to be back to work very soon, she said Monday, God love her she is so dedicated. She is a very special lady. Anyway, keep her in your thoughts and prayers, and thanks for understanding.
Have a great Monday everyone, and I hope you are enjoying seeing some tid-bits of Fall Fest.
Thanks for stopping in!
Hugs to all, Di
