Decorated Ferrero Rocher Table Favors

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This is a fun little project, perfect for a table gift or a little ‘something’ for co-workers. It will hold either a Ferrero Rocher or Lindt Lindor chocolate, and very economic to make as you can get about 6 from one sheet of 11 x 8 1/2 card. Remember to change out your color scheme for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas or even Red, White and Blue for July 4th!

Decorated Hand Sanitizer Gift Box – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love little gifts, both giving and receiving them is a thrill! – just a little something wrapped up prettily, given unexpectedly or placed on a holiday or celebration table – just lovely.

When Stampin’ UP! 2020 Aug/December Mini Catalog came out earlier this year it had the Little Treat Dies, perfect for creating and wrapping a little gift. I experimented and found I could get a mini hand sanitizer in one or a couple of those famous chocolate squares! I am sure there are lots of other goodies out there that would fit in as well.

Today I have a cute decorated chocolate bar wallet, featuring some of the autumn/fall and Thanksgiving themed goodies from the August – December 2020 mini catalog.

DSP Fond Farewell ~ Thank You’s

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I am always looking for inspiration and sometimes that comes from fellow demonstrators!  Due to one thing and another I was not able to send my usual  ‘Thank You’ to my March customers who shopped for their Stampin’ UP! goodies with me.  So when it came to April I knew  I needed to do a something special for them and my April customers.  I found this really great ‘twisted’ packet from Sam Donald so made a bunch of them from several of the soon to be retiring designer series papers.

Pretty Handmade Gift Box

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I make and share  lot of cards on my blog, I was working on some designs one evening and looking for a change and some inspiration and there was some off-cuts of Designer Series Paper on my work bench.  I decided a box would make a nice change ~ so I started with the largest piece of DSP to make the lid then worked backwards to make the base of the box, choosing one of the colors from the paper.

I share the ones I made below but set myself a challenge with the video to create a box for a Bath Bomb from scratch (keeping my fingers crossed all the time that it would work out)
