So, here are the other projects I submitted for the My Favorite Things Guest Designer Challenge. The first one is a birthday giftie for the coffee lover. I wanted to create a box and I thought a coffee mug would be perfect! I could not find a template I liked so I decided to create my own!!! It wasn't as hard as I though it would be either! I am hoping to share a tutorial on this upon my return from Chicago if there is interest. The body of the mug was run through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder to add some texture. The base is a scalloped circle but using my Nestabilities. I also added a scalloped trim (cut using decorative scissors) along the top rim. The handle was made using my SU! key tag punch. The front of the mug features a tag made with the Hot Stuff stamp set from MFT. Inside the mug are some Ghirardelli Espresso Escape dark chocolates - yum!!! I don't even care for coffee and I *love* these!
The last project I submitted was this adorable carrot box. I thought it would be too cute to hold treats for birthday favors. I found the template in the "resources" section on SCS. Again I used Gardener Flopsey and paired him with a sentiment from PTI's Green Thumb stamp set. How sweet is he??? Be sure you check back soon for some more fun projects! I'll be home soon . . . *wink*
