Here are some more projects that we did at this month's hostess club meeting. I was inspired to make these sweet little boxes after seeing some that other demonstrators have shared. We embellished empty button containers using a variety of products from the Occasions mini catalog, including the designer papers, pom pom trim, buttons, and roses. Some of the papers and die cuts came from the Sale-a-bration paper pack, which you can still get for free for one more week! These are the samples I made to inspire my club members:
Here are some of the boxes the ladies made:
You can purchase the containers here, (or e-mail your order to firstname.lastname@example.org). They are only $3.95 for 6, and they come in handy for storing all sorts of embellishments, earrings, loose change, candy, and probably a gazillion other little things.
We also did some technique sheets, which we do every month. Here are a couple of the ones we've done recently:
These are always a lot of fun. I have to punch a hole in the upper left corner before I can add these to my ring. I like to keep the format pretty simple and uniform. They are on 1/4 sheets of Stampin' Up! card stock, the sample size is 2.5" x 3.5" (trading card size) and the description is done on a business card template in Microsoft Works (2" x 2.5"). I was introduced to doing the technique sheets this way by Tracy Harp at one of the SCS gatherings, and I've been doing them with my club members ever since.
I have a bunch of work to do on my swaps for the gathering this week-end, so I'm off. I'll be sure to post pics of my projects when I get them done.
Thanks for stopping by!
