Weekend Wrap-up

Thanks to everyone who came out to my open house yesterday--it was so much fun to stamp with you!  For those of you who couldn't make it, this is the card that everyone made and took home, a variation on last week's theme that uses a different stamp from Delicate Doilies, and the ever useful Thank You Kindly.

Everyone who came also got to take home a little present from one of these cute boxes, which I made with the Petal Cone die and my trusty Big Shot.  A little extra scoring and cutting, and you have a lovely take out box instead of a cone that is just the right size for a gift.  Directions and a video how-to for this box are on Dawn Olchefske's blog here.

Do you recognize any of these pieces?  I decorated a number of these boxes with left-overs from earlier projects.  Always save your scraps!  The buttons on the purple box are from this card, and that turtle on the third box is from my Fox and Friends faze of February 2010!  You never know when your bits and pieces will come in handy--since I had so many of these things already on hand, decorating the boxes was a snap, and there was a design for every style.

More excitement coming this week.  Stay tuned!
