Thanks Giving Place Cards

Each year I make place cards for our Thanksgiving table.

For this project I used 4"x 12" piece of dark brown card-stock scored at 1", 6" and 11".  I folded on the score lines and put a piece of sticky strip to hold the bottom of the tent.  I added a 4"x 4 1/2" piece of designer paper.  I printed out the poem (below) using my computer and layered it on a 3 3/4" x 2 3/4" piece of rust paper.  I used the Tim Holtz medium rosette with scrap paper.  I printed the names on the computer using MDS (My Digital Studio) Stampin up and punched them out with the 1 1/4" circle punch.  I layered onto a 1 3/8" punched rust circle.  I distressed the edges with brown ink. 

Poem by my nephew Christian Reid (14 years old)

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

Justin's Birthday Treat Boxes

I made these boxes for my son's 17th Birthday.  We celebrated by taking him and 7 of  his best friends out to dinner.  I made each guest a Treat Box with a variety of pictures of the Birthday Boy at different ages.  They were a huge hit and fun conversation starter.  

The boxes were super simple to make.  I made a basic square box using a 5 1/2" X 10 1/2" piece of black card stock.  I scored the short side at 2 1/2", 5", 7 1/2" and 10".  I scored the long side at 3".  I cropped a variety of pictures at 2 1/4" x 2 3/4" and taped them to the front.  I filled the boxes with candy and lotto tickets.  I placed the box in a cello bag and tied a bow.
