Happy Teacher Appreciation Day/Week!!

Hello everyone!!  I have a super cute treat container to share with you today that is made out of a pint paint sized can.  This posted last week over on The Twinery blog.

I started out with a blank can and painted it red and green like an apple.  I rolled up a bit of corrugated cardboard and inked it with a brown color for the apple stem and hand cut out some leaves.  I hot glued them all on and then tied it all up with some Cappuccino and Peapod bakers twines and added a red button in the middle.  The tag is made with THIS die from My Creative Time and the apple is cut with my Cricut Explore.  I added a Thanks sentiment from SRM Stickers.  Here is a closer look.....

I added some woodgrain washi tape to the bottom of the can for a bit of fun texture.......

I filled it with a bag of chocolate candies, but you could fill it with just about anything you wanted to for that special teacher in your life.  I actually homeschool, so my kids have been filling up this can with treats, sweet notes and pictures for me.  I can't wait to see what they have put inside.

What do you think?  Happy Teacher Appreciation Day/Week to all the teachers out there!!

Hugs,
Amy

Bloom and Grow...It's Spring Time!

Oops!!  I almost forgot to get this super cute treat bag posted on my blog.  I shared it over on The Twinery blog last week and wanted to make sure that all of my readers got a peek at it, too.
I used some blue ink and a cloud die cut to make the sky background on white cardstock.  This bag is cut from THIS image and the flower is THIS image from the Silhouette store.  I used the Cantaloupe bakers twine to tie up the box and Peapod bakers twine behind the flower.  Here is another look at the flower.....

To finish off my treat bag, I used a wonderful SRM Sticker.  What do you think??  Would you like to receive this as a gift from someone??  I can't wait to brighten someone's day with it.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Hugs,
Amy

Fun Easter Tags with The Twinery

Hello there and happy spring!!  I just am loving this warmer weather and the little bout of snow we got this week made me appreciate the warmth even more.  Today I get to share these fabulous Easter tags over on The Twinery blog.....

I just love the look of these colorful eggs nestled in the Solid Peapod bakers twine as the grass.  I used dies and stamps from My Creative Time for the tags, clouds, eggs, and sentiment.  Here is a closer look at that awesome baker's twine grass.....

To get the look of a real egg, I used some ink to shade the edges of my egg and then added a white shine mark with a gel pen.  My kids say that these eggs look real from a distance....what do you think?

 

To finish off my project, I added some Peapod bakers twine to the tops to attach them to some Easter treat.

Do you have any fun Easter plans?  We will be going to church and then having an early dinner as a family.  On Saturday we will be going to the local Easter egg hunt....we recently moved to this town, so I hope that the kids enjoy it.

Have a great day and Happy Easter!!

Hugs,
Amy

Rainbow Fringe Birthday Card

Hello and welcome!!  I am excited to share this super colorful birthday card with you that has a rainbow fringe with some yummy solid bakers twine from The Twinery.

I created this card for my daughter who's birthday is on St. Patrick's Day.  She loves to celebrate her birthday on that day and welcomes anything that has to do with the holiday for her birthday.....I knew that a rainbow card would be prefect for her.  

If you want to see how I created the fringe, hop on over to The Twinery blog to see how I made it.  Here is a closer look at the fringe......

I used a star embossing folder in my Cuttlebug for the embossing and finished it off with a Fancy Sentiment from SRM Stickers.  So, do you like rainbow patterns??  Do you use them on your craft projects??

Have a great day!!

Hugs,
Amy
