Fun Stuff...

10.23.2008


just thought that I'd share what our MOP's project was this past Tuesday. I got a little pinched on time and thought of this quick little craft thinking that the moms' could then use this idea to later make future little gifts for others at home. The pack itself is just made from a 12 x 12 sheet of double-sided paper which I folded. The library card that I created for the front I thought would be perfect to house a little gift card or simply a note. Inside we just wrapped a candy bar and some popcorn and then at our meeting we threw in some cinnamon and butterscotch hard candies as well (they just matched the paper so well!). You could easily transfer this idea to other little things for the inside of of your pack to personalize it a bit to the person receiving the gift (teas, cocoas, cd's, etc.) you would just need to change the size of your paper to fit the wrapping.

All patterned paper used for this project is by Cosmo Cricket (Mr. Campy), scalloped punch and circle punch are Fiskars, stamp is by Heidi Grace, library pocket die was cut using the Ellison machine, and ribbon is by May Arts.

I also wanted to share a sneak peek of what's coming up for November from Scrapbook Circle! Lots of papers from the Ambrosia line by Basic Grey and the Jackson Lodge Collection by Collage Press....yum! Can't wait to start playing with this one myself!



Also, Scrapbook Circle is hosting it's first ever online crop, the Boo Bash, will start this weekend (tomorrow) and there will be lots of fun prizes to be won along the way, some RAK's and a grand prize will be one of Scrapbook Circle's awesome kits! They are just packed full of embellishments and beautiful papers, it is so totally worth playing along for a chance to get one in your hands! Anyone can participate...so I hope to see you there! Challenges will start bright and early in the morning and go through Sunday, it will be fun for sure and at the very least an opportunity to chat with friends, get some pages done and perhaps even to think outside the box a bit when it comes to your creative process!
