Zooballo Cartridge=Happy Birthday

I made this cute Birthday card and matching envelope.  It works great with the double sided paper.  I cut the card and envelope at 4 1/4".  These would be so cute to make a bunch of in different designs to keep on hand.

Very Merry Tags Cartridge:

I have been trying to come up with something to make my customers for Christmas.  I am a hairdresser and like to give them a little something to say thank you for coming all year.  I came across these cocoa sliders on You Tube, they hold one packet of cocoa.   If you search You Tube they have lots of  videos on the Cricut, card making, scrapbooking.  etc. Also alot of the blogs that I follow have great videos to share with you. 

Recipe:

1 packet of cocoa
Red card stock cut at 7 3/4" x 5 1/2"
Tree Cardstock cut at 7 3/4" x 4 1/2
Thread ribbon through hole then push ribbon down into pocket to form a loop to hold the cocoa packet.  Tie at top.  When you pull up the ribbon the cocoa comes out of the pocket.

I used the Very Merry Tags Cartridge for my tag. Cut at 2 3/4"  "warm wishes" was perfect.  This cartridge has a lot of cute tags to make for the holidays.

Ribbon Organizer!

I had my ribbon in a drawer and it was a mess. I didn't know what I had and it was unraveling.  When I went to Michael's I had a 50% off coupon and found this ribbon holder. I am Loving it.  I can see what I have at a glance, plus I still have room for plenty more.  With the coupon it came to 10.99.  Love coupons!! I never buy craft supplies without a coupon or if it's not on sale.

Okay loving post it note holders!

Here is one I made in less than 10 minutes.  These are really fun to make.  I bought the acrylic frame at the Christmas Tree shop for 89 cents.  I went to BJ's wholesale warehouse and found the post it notes, 18 in a package for 9.99.  Then I found these pens in all different colors.  36 in a package for 11.99.  So they ended up coming to 18 cents each.  My boss wants me to bring some into work and try selling them.  I am a hairdresser, I tell you these ladies love to buy things.  I made a wreath for the shop and people wanted to buy that.  LOL

Post it Note on Coaster

Here is a 4 x 4 coaster that I bought at Michaels.  They were in the $1.00 bin.  I got 8 for $1.00.  I found some scrap paper and cut at 4 x 4 and trimmed the corners. Glued it to the coaster with the sticky rolling glue.  I topped it with a 3 x 3 post it note.  Then took a large paper clip and attached the paper to it. I did decorate with clip with coordinating paper.  Tied a bow on top of the clip. Hope to be doing a craft fair in the fall with  my friend.

Tag Swap

I am doing a tag swap with several other people. The theme is Nature.  I cut the tag from Tags, Bags, boxes and More at 5".  The bird is from Straight from the Nest. The grass is from Plantin Schoolbook.  The stamp is from My pink Stamper .  We had to make 5 of them.  Then I will receive 5 back.

Hershey Nugget Tins

I have seen so many versions of these so I decided to make one. I bought the tins online at

Tin Rectangular Window 5.5" by 3.7" hinged at http://www.specialtybottle.com/.  They hold 12 Hershey nugget candies.  I then wrapped them with decorative paper.  You can cut a strip of paper at 3" wide.  Then cut 1" accross. I found I had to use a little tape to keep them from coming apart.

The outside I just decorated with two pieces of scrap paper and had a butterfly chipboard to use up.

Great way to use up some scraps and give a nice gift too.

Well just wanted to say Congratulations to the girls who won.  It looks like they are very, very creative.
It was fun entering anyway.  Here is the card I made:  Nice card to make for your hairdresser. I'm sure she would appreciate it.  I am a hairdresser myself and would love a home made card from my clients.
