Here is another super simple project that could be made in mast quantities if you so desired.
It's made with a Hershey nugget, a piece of 1 inch by 3 1/4 inch card stock and colored pencils.
I just drew on the faces with colored pencils, you could use makers, paint or anything you have laying around. I used pencils 'cause they were 2 feet from where I was sitting. Then take a pair of gloves or 1 single glove if you are one of those people that loses a glove and never tosses out the single because you are sure as soon as you do, the other one will turn up. You know who you are. Now just go ahead a cut the fingers off that single glove and make five of these cute little guys and girls and if the other glove turns up, well just make five more.
I made a boy and a girl just for fun. You can leave them as is or add a hook to hang on a tree. Then after you have the fingers cut off, don't throw them away.
You now have a pair of fingerless gloves for texting, not while you're driving, of course.
Wow that is a really bad angle, my fingers are not that fat. If you don't have any of gloves laying around that you want to cut up, just head on down to the nearest dollar store, last year they were selling them 2 pair for a dollar.
I had a request for a little insight as how I made one of the boxes from my last post so here is what I did. I started out with a piece of 6 x 6 double sided paper. I like the 6 x 6 size because you can take a 12 x 12 paper and get 4 little boxes out of one sheet.
Punch and score at 1 inch and 4 inches, the turn your paper to the side and punch and score following the score lines all the way around. Then place the corners into the corner rounder side of the punch board and round all the edges.
Cut the paper on the score lines as shown. (I usually make templates for my projects out of ugly cheap paper.)
When you put it together attach the sides on the outside of your box. That way when you fold the top flap down you will have a nice smooth finish on the top of your box.
I added brads and a ribbon handle after I was done, but I recommend doing this before you put it together as it's much easier to attach brads to a flat surface. And guess what fits inside - three Ghirardelli chocolates.
Stay tuned as I have more in the works using various sizes of paper.
Todays feature is the Stampin' Up Envelope Punch Board and this is my favorite project so far.
This would make a super cute little gift to give to co-workers. It's inexpensive to make but much more time consuming to make than yesterdays project of wrapping a piece of burlap around a candle.You can see the you tube video to see exactly how this cute little guy it is done here.
It holds a Ghirardelli Chocolate. I should have stock in that company, is there anyone out there that buys more than me? This one happens to be Sea Salt Caramel. And now it happens to be gone, yes I ate it while I was posting onto this blog.
I went a little crazy with the envelope board and made these fun little boxes.
Everyone that ordered a punch board from me is getting a little box, and yes there is chocolate involved. I'm having way to much fun with this and I may have to host a Envelope Punch Board Party.
When my niece challenged asked me if I had any ideas for inexpensive gifts to make for her coworkers, I immediately thought of these.
The dollar store is a good source for inexpensive candles, The burlap on the large candle came from JoAnns, the burlap ribbon on the small candle is a Stampin' Up product and the buttons are from my massive stash. She said she needed a lot of gifts and I didn't think to ask how many but if it is more than 20 this project could get costly so make sure you tune in Tuesday for another project that's less costly to make.
