I can't believe it is week #8 already of my Fall Friday Series. I have had so much fun creating projects to share with all of you. Make sure you check back next week for the final project. I have been wanting to make one of these for the last couple of years and finally made it. I can't wait to share it with you.
This week I decorated the pizza boxes that are in the holiday catalog. I haven't really played with them until this week and I am not sure what took me so long. They are so stinkin' cute! For this project I decorated one as a halloween box with chocolate in it and the other one is more fall with eight 3 x 3 note cards and envelopes. Stampin' Up! brought back the 3 x 3 envelopes, which I am so happy about.
Did you notice on the box with the sunflowers on it, that I stamped right on the box! It was so easy as the boxes come flat and then you fold them as you want to use them. With them coming flat it is great for storing them. You know what else is great? They are food safe! So, you can put any homemade little treat inside the box and your food will be save.
To make the Halloween box you will need the following products:
Basic Black Cardstock #121045
- cut 2 at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Pumpkin Pie Cardstock #105117
- cut at 3 1/8"x 3 1/8"
- cut 4 at 7/8" x 3 3/8"
- cut at 3" x 4" to punch out two labels
Spooky Night Designer Series Paper #144610
- cut 2 at 3 x 3" one for the top and one for the inside
- cut 4 at 3/4" x 3 1/4"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 2 x 3"
The pumpkins on the front are from a piece of the Spooky Night designer series paper and I fussy cut them out.
The tag is from the Spooky Cat stamp set and punched out with the Everyday Label Punch from the Holiday catalog. Below is a picture of how I did the orange pieces behind the tag. I finished the tag off with the new Black Rhinestone Jewels that are also in the Holiday catalog. I sure hope they carry these over to the annual catalog next year. The tag and pumpkins are adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals and everything else is adhered with the Snail Adhesive.
To make the Painted Harvest box you will need the following products:
Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272
- cut 8 at 3" x 6" score at 3"
Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684
- cut 8 at 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"
- cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Soft Suede Cardstock #115318
- cut at 1" x 11"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut 8 at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
- cut at 3 1/8" x 3 1/8"
- cut at 2 1/2" x 8 1/2" this is for the flower and leaves on the front band
To give the flower on the band a little bit of sparkle I used Wink of Stella on it and the leaves. I used Fast Fuse to adhere the band together and the flower and leaves on the band. I wanted to make sure they stayed together as the band will be taken off and on.
Here are some more pictures of the projects
It has been a wonderful week for me this week! To start with on Tuesday I was promoted to Silver Elite with Stampin' Up! I have been working really hard to get the promotion and I still can't believe I did it. I was so happy I was crying and Mr. Wonderful asked why do women do that, cry when they are happy. I told him that it was because that is the way God made us. Now, I will be the first to admit, I cry at everything and I mean everything!
Then on Wednesday night I had my first team meeting. I would not have been promoted without these wonderful ladies. I can't thank them enough and am so blessed to have each and everyone of them on my team, but more importantly as my friend. They mean the world to me!
I will admit I was so nervous about the meeting, I wanted everything to be perfect for them. It went perfect and was so much fun! We already have our next two meetings planned and I can't wait!
Last Saturday was our 29th wedding anniversary, but it didn't work out for us to celebrate last weekend. We are going to spend the day together and finish it off with going to a hockey game in Columbus. We both love to watch hockey, so I am really looking forward to it.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
