Nail Polish Bunnies

Here is quick little non - candy Easter surprise.  I made some spiders for Halloween and decided to make some bunnies for Easter.


I just used some paper punches and my Cricut to make their little faces.  A bow was added and eyes were made using a Black Sharpie.


I used Scor-Tape to adhere the face and the pom pom tail to the bottle.  While this tape is excellent at keeping paper adhered together, it easily peels off of the glass bottle so nail polish doesn't drip onto it.


Supplies:
Paper:  Echo Park, Recollections
Misc:  Nail polish, ribbon, pom poms, paper punches, pop up dots, black sharpie pen, Cricut

Valentine's Day Button Tag Bags

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope your day is filled with love and chocolate.  My day is filled with work, this being one of the two busiest days in the restaurant industry, but I saved myself some Cherry Cordial M & M's for when I get home tonight!

I've been doing quite a bit of sewing lately, and I just love making little bags.  It's a great way to use of little scraps of fabric and most of the time, they make up really fast.

Last month, the Senior Design Team at Papertrey Ink revisited Button Boutique.  This is one of my favorite PTI stamp sets.  I absolutely loved this one at Lilybean Paperie and decided to incorporate it with my new little bags.

I made two styles of bags.  The first one is simple drawstring muslin bag.  I like to stuff it with a lot of stuff and I wanted it to stand up on it's own, so I boxed the bottom corners.


The bags are 6 1/2 inches x 51/4 inches.  


Next up are these little tote bags, I call them my Tiny Totes.


These little guys measure 6 inches x 5 inches.  The bottoms of these bags also are boxed so that they stand up freely.


Supplies:
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink-Button Boutique and Friendship Jar Spring Fillers
Paper:  Bazzill, American Crafts, Echo Park
Ink:  Memento
Misc:  Muslin bags, Tiny Totes, lace, buttons, baker's twine, mini spools, stick pins, glitter, paper punches, ribbon, sewing machine, Diamond Glaze, Papertrey Ink Dies-Button Boutique and Button Up #2 Die

I Dig You


This is one of those things that didn't photograph well, I apologize, but they are way cuter in real life.  I saw these cute little shovels in Target and they were only 28 cents each, bonus bargain!!  They were a perfect match to the American Crafts Valentine paper pad that they had in the scrapbook aisle, another bonus for me!

So, I made these little tags and packaged up some candy for a special Valentine treat.



Supplies:
Paper:  American Crafts, Bazzill, Recollections
Misc:  Shovel, baker's twine, paper punch, button, cellophane bag, candy, Nestabilities, Sizzix Yarn Sizzlits Alphabet

Teddy Bear Valentines

Hello!!!  How is everyone doing?  Where I have been and what have I been doing?!  I'm not quite sure, they say time flies when you are having fun...or not!!

As usual, I'm doing projects at the last minute.  Here are some paper punch Valentines that I made.


I used a variety of paper punches and my Cricut to make this little cutie.  Everything is better with a little chocolate, so I added this Nestle Crunch Heart to the center.


I needed a fun way to package him, so I used a glassine bag that I "tricked" up.  While I am a little behind on the trends, here is my first attempt at a confetti bag.  I just punched a million little hearts and added some fluffy glitter that I bought who knows when!  The doily heart was made using the Lifestyles/Quickutz 4x4 Die.


Here are my "naked" bears just waiting for their chocolate hearts!

Supplies:
Ink:  Memento
Paper:  Bazzill, American Crafts, Recollections
Misc:  Paper punches, pop up dots, Cricut George & Basic Shapes Cartridge, white gel pen, black Sharpie pen, glassine bag, Quickutz/Lifestyles Heart Doily Die, button, baker's twine, fluffy glitter, plastic bag, chocolate heart
