Happy Monday everyone! I altered a few of these gum tins over the weekend. I'll be altering a lot more of these this coming week. My brother gave me a box of these tins many years ago. I move them with me to every house I move too. I could never think of what to do with them until now. They were filled with gum that tastes okay but they stick to your teeth. I emptied them and will be filling them with other kind of treats. These alter tins will be for my sisters to give away this year. I made Christmas favours for them every year to give away. They always enjoyed them and of course the recipient love them too.
I measured the tin to get the measurements so I can cover it with Designer Series Paper. I used all the retired papers I have on hand for these tins. I die cut the snowflakes using the Northern Frost Die. Such a nice snowflakes die. The little flowers are made using the Trio Flower Punch. I punch a hole on each side of the tin with a Crop-a-dile. So easy with the Crop-a-dile. I don't have to drill holes anymore. Yay! These tins can also be hang on a Christmas tree as ornaments. Now I'm off to finish altering the tins.
Good day everyone! I'm finally done scanning the work samples for September and October and send them to the homeschool teacher. Now I need to do the November work samples.
I did take a little break and did some stamping. I made a card.
I've finally ordered the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and I love it. At first I had no idea what to do with it so that's why it took me so long to order it. I made a 3D Christmas trees. I punched the pennants out using the Old Olive card stock, run it through the Big Shot using the Petals-a-plenty Embossing Folder to embossed the pennants and glue them together. I used three pennants punch outs for each tree. The trunks was made by punching 2 Chocolate Chip card stock using the Word Window Punch. Everything is fast with punches. My favourite tool.
Good day everyone. It has been 2 weeks since I've create anything. Life has been busy around here.
Here is a bird house I made awhile ago and finally decorate it. I wanted to put lots and lots of snowflakes and flowers on this bird house but I have to contain myself. I used the Northern Frost Die for the snowflakes.
I top off the bird house with snowflakes and ribbon. I used the seam binding ribbon and loop the ribbon a few times to get the full puffy look. Love this ribbon. The lid of the bird house opens up and you can put treats in it. Makes great Christmas gift. Wrap it with a cellophane and tie it with a ribbon.
I sponged the snowflakes with Crumb Cake ink. The flowers are made using the Trio Flower punch (retired).
