Next Online Class and Gift Box with Video

Last night’s “Live Online Class” was a hit!  Everyone received their stamps and kits in time to create right along with me.  It was like attending a regular class except that everyone could see and hear me on their computer screen in the comfort of their own home.  And for those with the capability, I could see and hear them.  But, everyone with or without a camera on their computer could see, hear me and craft right along with me.  It was really fun!

So, today I’m announcing the stamp set we will use for next month’s online class.

Peachy Keen stamp set

For this class you’ll receive:

  • a kit with prepped materials to make 4 cards
  • the Peachy Keen stamp set
  • directions on how to “attend” the online class

Email me using the “Contact” tab in the sidebar by March 3 to RSVP for the class.  Class will be held on March 24 from 7-9.

In addition to class news, I have a creation for you today.  I made a decorative gift box that would be perfect for a bride, Mother’s Day, birthday.  I’d love to receive most anything in it.

Decorative Gift Box




I used one of the Decorative Window Gift Boxes on page 36 of the Occasions Catalog (#132146) and covered it with some of the Silver Fancy Foil Vellum (#133364).  Then, I wrapped Silver 1/8″ Ribbon (#132137) around the box several times and tied a macrame style square knot along the front of the box.  Next, I added several medium sized Basic Rhinestones.  And finally, was the circle punch flower that I created for the top.  There’s a close up shot of the top of the box below, followed by a video showing how to make a circle punch flower.

There’s a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper layered with a Vintage Faceted Designer Button for the center of this flower.

Don’t you just love the shiny, silver dots all over the box and the way the sheer vellum mellows the color of the kraft box?  A bonus is that the dots are a great place to put your adhesive so that it doesn’t show through the vellum.

Now check out the video so that you can make your own pretty boxes or anything else that needs a great flower.
