Tissue box covers

I love making these boxes from splitcoaststampers. They are so easy to make and they come out so cute. I think I will make more for the holidays. I used cricut cart Paperdolls cut at 3 1/2 inches and used CTMH papers for all the dolls, and inked the edges with chocolate ink also from CTMH. I used my new Peachy Keen stamps for the faces. I used S.E.I paperpack called Addison that I bought last year. I used a MS punch for the bottom border. TFL!

Cookie boxes

I got an email yesterday from and she had the most awesome cookie box tutorial in the email. These boxes are so easy to make and I made these three in less than an hour, Go to her website and check them out. They only use one 12 x 12 sheet of paper. I used some K&Company paper that I bought last year and decorated them with tags that came with the paper. I will give these to my mom since she loves to bake and then she can fill each box and hand them out to her friends. They will hold on dozen cookies. Thanks for looking. Sorry about the crappy backgroud showing but my scrapbook room has the best lighting.

Halloween treat bags for co-workers

I made these little boxes using the Sizzix box 2. I used K&C comopany paper. I filled them with candy and passed them out. They loved them. The second photo is of treat bags that I made for Denise and Amanda's children to pass out at school. Thanks for looking.
