Purse Your Treats...Not Your Lips



I made the above (more than one....a set of little purses for a swap recently)

These little jewels are big enough for a few chocolates or flashy baubles....whatever the budget, eh?

The swap centered on challenges for the Cricut. This one uses the "Forever Young" (for the purse) and Gypsy Wanderings (emblem and layers) cartridges.

My minds actually SPINS with all the possibilities of what can be done with these little treasures. Really...it's perfect packaging.

Somewhere in my youth I was taught that the PRESENTATION for a gift was almost as important as the gift itself. Like almost every lesson, I'm thinking it came from my mom...who coordinates EVERYTHING. Really.

You should see her little outfits. Her shoes, even her Keds Boat shoes, match.

Always. She is something else...

She still wraps stunning packages...Even on her meager budget....Really...She does.

Anyway...as a child, I would have drooled over a machine that simplified things the way Big Shot and Cricut do for me now.

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Spooky Eyeballs

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!

To save at the original version size, click on the image and then click again to zoom in.  Then you can save and print it!
