Time for this week’s 3D challenge from Paper Craft Planet. Today is 3d149 & this is an idea that I saw a few years ago from Melissa of Melissa Stampin for Fun. It’s a cute little Treat Box, just in time for Valentines day. These would be sweet with little York Peppermint Pattie or cinnamon hearts.
The template, starts with a simple circle! I must admit, with a bunch of these to make, I made mine a bit smaller & more paper conservative, with 1 piece of 12×12″ DSP, I cut & made 4 little envelope/treat boxes. Have some fun with her template and let’s see what you make!
Paper Craft Planet’s Scrappy Sunday, has some great templates right now to motivate your scrapbooking. I couldn’t help myself and made a page of my Malcolm.
I prefer 8 1/2 x 11″ layouts, so I adapted the layout a bit.
Now, if you haven’t heard of the story by Roch Carrier, it’s called the Sweater & it’s a favourite book around here!
It’s a Valentine Blog Hop hosted by Creations By AR!
Come visit all the DT’s:
Amy –> that’s me! And here’s what I made to show you …
The fun thing about this shadow box, is you can put anything in it to personalize it:
The second template is a cute surprise purse. Now the beauty of Adela’s templates is they are not only adorable, but sizeable. The unmodified size, fits a gift card, but if you size it down to 50% you get a barbie purse … WAH!
This would be fun to give the the little Valentine girl in your home!
How do you enter into this giveaway? Just leave a comment for your chance to win.
Winners will be announced Thursday! Be sure to visit all the Design Team’s blog & leave a message of love. Each blog will give away BOTH new templates.
Special thanks to Adela of Creations By AR for these adorable templates!
My youngest, who turned 6 in December, got a Claymation kit for his birthday. A couple of days ago, he & his big brother went at it. Huge hit, I didn’t hear from them for the morning.
I thought, for no help from Adults, and their first attempt at a 40 second movie, it was pretty good … but I’m their Mum. Next lesson, lighting. Day of the Dinos
They’re already talking about their next film.
Totally a cool gift, if you’re having difficulty finding something for boys or girls …
Time for a Tuesday 3D Challenge at Paper Craft Planet, 3D145. January, in this house, the boys watch football & we get ready for Superbowl. We are the family that brings out the little football shaped chilli bowls & Football Field Table Cloths towards the end of January. I saw this cute post from Vanessa on Table settings for Football Parties & was inspired!
All you need is 1 piece of paper to make a little holder decoration for the table.
I scored & cut my paper at 2 1/2″ in and folded to make a box “lid”.
Rather than punch a hole, it’s better to use an exacto knife & cut an “x” so that it holds the cupcake stable.
To plan out where to cut the “x”, I used a circle template, that was later removed. Depending on the size of your cupcake/ice cream cone you can adjust the size.
That’s all. Pretty fast and this would be fun for a super bowl/birthday party.
