Flower Swap & Altered Notebook

I recently participated in a flower swap over at the And I couldn't decide which flowers to make. I have so many flowers made now from trial and error. But these were my submission and all were made with fabric or ribbon. These would be great for a page layouts and mini books. The green and purple ones are great hair clips as well. And I also been working on altered composition notebooks for friends and family.

Graduation Caps

We have graduations coming upon us. So, I decided to make a few caps as party favors. Found these graduation caps at my local craft store. They are filled with mini Snickers and Three Muskateers. These ribbons can be done in the same color as the graduating class. A quick and easy party favor.

Birthday Candybar

I did some designing this weekend and made this for someone's birthday. I will have to start designing more. I think these came out really nice. I just hope the birthday lady likes them.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all. Here is a card I saw as a bonus in the "Paper Crafts Magazine" for the month of May/June 2011. I used most of the products from what I had in my stash. There is one thing that I really want and cannot find is the seam binding. I can't seem to find any anywhere in my craft stores . But anyway here is the card I made for my mom. Thanks for stopping by.

Altered Cigar Box

I was inspired by all the beautiful boxes that were swapped by Jade's Super Secret Squirrel Swap. I had to make one of these for myself since I missed the opportunity to participate. This was a challenge for me. I could not get that crackle effect on my box, some crackled spots but not the entire box. But I still kept going and this is the final result. I think it came out really nice.

Spa Gift

This is a hanging gift box with a small manicure set. Included is a emery board, toe separators, nail polish, cotton balls and nail file and to top it off, the box is hanging from a bottle of nail polish. This inspiration came from Laurie at "On The Bright Side", hop on over to her blog, she has some very pretty projects. These would make great gifts for Mother's Day or any occasion.
