Welcome to my Fall Friday series!!! This week I have an adorable holder for hand sanitizers. I got the measurements and basic design from Dawn Griffith another fabulous demonstrator. When I was in Bath and Body Works looking for some fall candles, I saw a basket full of fall scented hand sanitizers. Of course, my first thought was I can make a holder for this. Then I thought I can make this for one of my Fall Friday projects. So here it is!
This is a fairly easy project to make, which is nice because I plan on making more of these to give out as little gifts. I am thinking about making these at Christmas time too. How cute would they be with the snowman from Spirited Snowmen stamp set on them.
To make this card you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.
Granny Apple Green
- cut at 2" x 11" score at 1/2", 1 1/2", 3 1/2", 4 1/2", 6 1/2", 7 1/2" and 8 1/2"
Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper
- a piece to punch out a 2" circle
- a piece to cut out three hats
To make the holder you need to first use the Layering Oval Framelits and cut out an opening for the top of the hand sanitizer to fit through. You will cut the oval out of the section between the 1/2" and 1 1/2" score lines. Once you have finished that, put Tear and Tape on the 1/2" section and burnish all score lines EXCEPT THE 6 1/2" LINE. The 6 1/2" score line is for you to line you where you are going attach the 1/2" section that has the Tear and Tape on. See picture below of how it will look when it is folded and the 1/2" section is attached.
There is a stamp set, Cauldron Bubble, and coordinating framelits that also coordinate with the Toil and Trouble designer series paper. The framelits have pieces that cut out some of the shapes that are on some of the papers of the designer series paper pack. There is a framelit for the hats, so you don't have to sit and fussy cut them unless you want to. I used the black 3/8" Glittered Organdy ribbon, behind the circles.
To keep the top flap closed I used little velcro circles. You can get those at craft stores, Wal-Mart or
I popped the Pumpkin Pie up with Stampin Dimensionals, everything else was adhered with snail adhesive. I used two glue dots on the bottom of the hand sanitizer to held it in place so it wouldn't fall out.
How easy and cute was that project?
Yesterday I needed to make my technique card that I was teaching at a workshop I had last night. I thought the daycare kids would like to do it with me and boy, was I right. I was demonstrating the baby wipe technique with fall colors. The little ones thought it was the coolest thing when the ink drops hit the baby wipes and spread out. I then let them stamp their own leaf, they did so good, and also use the Big Shot to cut their leaves out. Here are some pictures of them using the big shot and stamping. Then all of them with their final card.
At Christina's workshop last night we had so much fun! I got to meet new people, which I love, and have lots of laughs while stamping. One of my new ladies, Michelle, hadn't stamped before. I thought she did real well. Here is a picture of Michelle with her first card she has ever made.
What a great day yesterday! Kids learning how to stamp and use the big shot, Michelle learning how to make cards, seeing old friends and making new ones and best of all laughing and enjoying the people I was with and love. It can't get much better than that!
Thank you for stopping in today! I hope all of you have a fabulous weekend!
Did you notice my new signature? I am still working on my blog to make some changes I have been wanting to do, but haven't had the time.
