3D Thursday - Pillow Box Thanksgiving Place Card Holder

Greetings! and welcome to another 3D Thursday post.  I am so happy that we are back to posting every Thursday with super fun projects!  This week it was design team member Nicolle's turn to get crafty.  Nicolle came up with a pretty way to let you know where you are to sit at the Thanksgiving table.  
Let's take a look.
 Nicolle altered some of our Pillow Boxes into pretty little place setting treats.  To make the leaves she used the Gather Together Bundle.  Can't wait to make some!
If you are wondering how she wrote the names so nice, Nicolle used the stamp set Make A Difference which has all the alphabet in upper and lower case to make your own pretty words.  They look so elegant.  If you would like to create some of these pretty place settings for your table FREE directions along with pictures can be found by clicking the link below.  
Happy Crafting!

Spooky Fun Treat Holder


Supplies:

Stamp Set:
To Every Season

Cardstock: 
Basic Black: (1)  8 1/2" x 2" and a scrap

Quick & Easy Directions:

1.  Score the 8 1/2" x 2" piece of basic Black CS at 3 3/4" and 4 3/4".  Punch both ends using the  Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  Run each end through the Big Shot using the Brick Emboss Folder.  No need to emboss the (middle) section as it will be the bottom.  Fold the sides up.

2.  Score the 6" piece DSP at 1", 2", 4"and 5".  Putting adhesive on both of the 1" ends and the 2" piece attach it to the Black piece about 1/2" up from the bottom.  Add adhesive to the smaller piece of DSP and attach it over the back pieces the may have a gap showing.

3.  Using the Big Shot and Ornate Frames cut out the one shown above in Black and the other in Gorgeous Grape.  Stamp "Happy Halloween" using Memento Black on the Grape piece.  Attach the piece with saying to the black ornate frame with Dimensionals.

4.  Punch both ends of the 1/4" strip of Granny Apple Green with the Classic Label Punch as shown in the picture below. 

5.  Adhere the Green strip to the back of the black ornate piece in the middle.  Then using adhesive attach this to your treat holder.  Using scrap of Black punch out 2 bats and adhere them to the front of your treat holder as shown.  Add your treats at this time.

6.  Thread the piece of Granny Apple Green Ribbon through the holes at the top of Treat Holder halfway.  Tie the Glittered Black Ribbon around the Granny Apple Green Ribbon into a bow.  Your Spooky Fun Treat Holder is finished!

3D Thursday - Frankenstein Mini Pizza Box

Hello!  This week it was my turn to be the creative member on duty.  I almost squealed with excitement because Halloween Treats are some of my favorite things to make!  For my project I came up with a fun little Frankenstein Treat Box using our Mini Pizza Boxes.  Remember there is a link to download the FREE directions at the end of my blog post, so be sure and do that!
The color choice for my little Frankenstein box was of course Granny Apple Green.  It just happens to be one of my favorite happy colors.  So bright and it almost seems to glow.  I sponged the edges of all my green pieces to give him more depth also.
Here's a side view so you can see his ears and bolts in his neck.  By adding Dimensionals to my project also gave it more of a 3D look.
I think the funnest part to my project is that his hair is the belly band for the box.  That part was actually the "light bulb" moment for me and that's when I knew this was my project for this week.
The inside of the box has a simple Happy Halloween stamped and punched out using the Tailored Label Punch and adhered to the inside lid of the box.  I attached a couple of fun little bats also. The box is a perfect size for a Halloween Treat!  I hope you have enjoyed my little Pizza Box project this week.  Are you ready to get crafty?  For full directions with a list of supplies and pictures, just click on the link below to download the FREE Printable Direction Sheet.  We love sharing our creativity with others!
Have a super crafty day!  Thanks for stopping by!

3D Thursday Throwback - Washi Tape Holder

Greetings!  Welcome to a 3D Thursday Throwback.  Looking back in our projects I came across this fun and useful project that teammate Debbie Henderson made out of an empty wax paper box in August of 2017.   If you know me very well, I love to make old things new again.  Check it out and then click on the link below for FREE printable directions.
Washi Tape fits inside the box perfectly!
Debbie used some of our stamps and diecut leaves to decorate the outside of her box along with some of our pretty Designer Paper.  Although this project is from 2017 and these products may be retired there are fun new products you can use to make your washi tape holder.
One last front shot of the box.  Ok, so now it's time to get busy making your own washi tape holder.  Click on the link below for FREE printable directions.
Have a super crafty day!
