Graphic 45 Natures Sketchbook Watering Can Favor Box

Hello everyone! Are you ready for National Scrapbooking Day? I will be celebrating National Scrapbooking Day at a retreat. I created some fun favor boxes for the event.

I used a really cute watering can svg file from Lori Whitlock. I used papers from the Natures Sketchbook collection to cut them out. Instead of chocolates to put inside the favor boxes I thought it would be fun to add sunflower seeds!

I added some little extra details like mini brads to the base of the handle and spout. I used a circle punch to cut out butterflies from one of the design papers and then backed it with a scallop circle from the patterns and solids. A bit of twine and a fun little die cut tag with NSD 2017 was added to the handle to finish it off.

I will be teaching my Natures Sketchbook Large Folio project at the retreat and thought these little watering cans were perfect!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Echo Park “I Love Winter” Cocoa Pouch

Echo Park “I Love Winter” Cocoa Pouch

Hello everyone! It’s Friday so that means it’s time for another challenge over at PDE Linky Party! This will be the last challenge for 2016. The challenge this week is “Anything Goes!”. I decided to create a little cocoa pouch using some fun papers from Echo Park’s I Love Winter collection by Lori Whitlock.

I used some fun doily dies, scallop circle dies, and circle punches to create several layers to add to the center of the pouch. The pouch is a die cut also.

The cute little mittens were from a border strip off of the design paper that I cut out with a circle punch. I used snowflake punch to add some glittery snowflakes and added a little red bling to the centers. I decided the little mittens needed some sparkle as well!

There you have it! I added some yummy cocoa and a peppermint stick to the inside of the pouch and tied it off with some pretty ribbon. Make sure you join the fun at PDE Linky Party! Have a great New Year!
