Olaf Fry Box

 These fry boxes were purchased  some years ago at a scrapbook expo and
am so excited I finally find a use for them.  I got my inspiration
from the Olaf Punch Art tutorial on YouTube by thepixiedustmom.
These were quite a hit with the ladies in my group at a  
scrapbook retreat last weekend.
Till next time.

Ho! Ho! Ho! Treat Box

                   Saw these cute  treat boxes on Pinterest that were  posted Nov. 19th, 2014  by
Amy Whelan. Her web site is www.amy'
I made six of them to give to my Doctor and staff at Christmas.
The only change I made to her instructions were using a different punch shape
behind the Ho! Ho! Ho! banner and a narrower band around the middle.
 Box measures 2" x 2"and I filled  with Reese's miniature peanut butter cups.

Lighthouse Shadowboxes

Sorry I am so late posting but just got busy with the holidays then illness since Christmas eve.
Doing so much better now and looking forward to getting back into crafting mode.

These are the shadowboxes I made for my friend's Christmas Gift.
Boxes are constructed with presentation board. After determining the desired
measurements and assembling, I covered the background with scrapbook paper
containing clouds.  Cut out the shape of the lighthouses, mounted on white card stock
then trimmed around leaving 1/8" border and mounted with pop dots.  Grayish rocks hot
glued at the base for the bulkhead effect.  I tried to locate seagull stickers to no avail then came across
actual pictures my husband had taken. Once cut out, they were the perfect size. Inside edges and outsides of the boxes are covered with weathered wood grain paper.
