Valentine Woven Heart Basket

I’ve seen these Woven Heart Boxes or Baskets on several blogs, but I found a video on how to make them here. I don’t have the Sizzix die, Petal Card yet, so I liked the way you can still make this card without having the die, although it would be a lot less steps if you did have it.( Did you get, “I don’t have it yet?”) I used some retired Patterns Pack DSP, which was a level 1 hostess item. I like to try some things with retired DSP just incase I mess up. But this was pretty easy and I think I’m going to include in my Valentine Class coming up on February 8th. Now I need to make up one using the Candy Lane DSP. I’ve said it before, love this designer paper.

Valentine Box Cover

Here is another quick and easy project. I found the directions here.  These would be cute for your children’s Valentine gifts, they could even decorate the box. 

Birthday Thank you’s

So here are my thank you’s for all the wonderful gifts everyone brought to my party. I couldn’t believe that I got gifts too! What a bonus. I used the Raspberry Tart DSP and the matching stamp set Sweet Stems. There is also a matching Sizzix Embosslit die. I decided to use my watercolor crayons to color in the flower.  For the scallop around the wide oval punch, I took and punched a 1 1/4″ circle punch and then used the circle scallop punch over that. I then cut apart the circle and clipped each little scallop, which makes it easier to put the circle scallops around the oval with the punched flowers. It takes 1 whole circle scallop and then an additional 4 more scallops to complete the oval. I used two way glue to glue down the scallops. I know, clear as mud, right? You can email me if you have any questions.
