Tic Tac Tutorial

Hello friends! It’s been a busy 1st week of September around these parts. Birthdays, youth outreach events, getting caught up from vacation and then friends in town for the holiday weekend. I hope that things have been going well for you! 
In July, I participated in a Treat Swap at Convention in Salt Lake City. My treat holder was an original creation and I have had some requests for directions so today I present to you my very first tutorial!!!! Creating something like a tutorial was very overwhelming for me and I decided I just needed to face my fears and do it. So, without further ado…..
Start with a piece of card stock measuring 4.5″ X 6″
  Using your Simply Scored Scoring Tool, score the short side of your card stock at 3/4″ and 3-3/4″
 then score the long side of your card stock at 5/8″, 1-3/8″, 3-3/8″ and 4″
 Cut some coordinating Designer Series Paper so that you have the following
2 at 2-3/4″ X 1-3/4″
2 at 1/2″ X 1-3/4″
1 at 1/2″ X 2-3/4″
You will also need a piece of coordinating card stock cut to 3/8″ X 2-1/2″ and scored at 1/2″, 3/4″, 1-3/4″ and 2″

Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, adhere the designer series paper to the card stock, leaving the top side sections blank. These are folded in and never seen or cut away.
 Fold along all score lines and crease using your bone folder.

Using your paper snips, cut on the first and second horizontal score lines from the bottom up to the vertical score line and cut a small V into each to make folding easier. Repeat on the opposite side. 
Next, cut away the top two side sections on the score lines on each side of the box. 
When you are done, your box should look like this:
Using your Liquid glue you can now assemble the box, fold your handle and attach to the top.
Cut a 5/8″ Velcro circle into quarters

Attach the soft side of the velcro to the lid of your box and fold over to find the proper placement of the rough side. Press firmly to make sure that each half is securely in place.
 Voila! Your box is now complete!! Just add Tic Tac’s!

I hope that you love this project as much as I do. If you would like a printable version of the tutorial, click here

ICS Blog Hop – Butterflies are Free!

Welcome hoppers to the July edition of the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! Welcome to those of your who have arrived here from Claudia’s Blog – didn’t you just love her card! If you arrived here all on your own – we are so glad to have you!
Our theme this month is Butterflies! Stampin’ Up! offers us quite a few choices in this area and is one of my most favorite images!
The card I have made for you this month is using the gorgeous stamp set
Butterfly Basics and the coordinating Framelit. This is one of the
wonderful bundles carried over from our Occasions Catalog and I could
not be happier. I just adore this bundle. This card design will work in
so many color combinations and with just a change of sentiment, can be
used for so many different occasions. I love the muted colors on the
cardstock so that the large butterfly image can really be the focal
point. Below you will find a list of the supplies used in the making of
this card and as always you can purchase these supplies at my Stampin’ Store Online.  
Now, it’s time to hop on over to Joni’s blog and see what she has for you! Thanks so much for hopping by. Be sure to leave me love in the form of a comment and subscribe to the blog so you never miss a post!

ICS Blog Hop Triple Time

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! This month you are in for a BIG treat!! We have an amazing technique as the theme for our blog hop this month! It is called Triple Time and it is SO MUCH FUN!! Not only that, but it’s quite easy and makes a card that really WOW’s the person receiving it. The amazing and very humble Brian King shared his tutorial HERE which is what I used to create the project below.

Once I was able to wrap my head around how this is technique works, I wanted to make about 6 different projects for the Hop. I knew that was not possible so please be sure to check back and see the other ideas that I created as I worked on learning this technique.
I love this Winter Themed Set called Endless Wishes and the more I am using the Photopolymer stamp sets the more I love them. They are easy to use, they provide a crisp, clean image everytime and I am always able to see where I am stampin!
I am a huge fan of blues and silver for both Christmas and Winter so it was easy to decide what colors to use on this card.  Once I decided the colors, it was quick and easy to stamp, assemble and voila! 
Next, take a peek at what Tammy has made for the hop!
