It is never to early to think about Christmas for me. I love to make little gifts to give to friends and shut-ins. I was eating some french fries and thought, hey I can make this box and fill with homemade cookies or candy. Yes, I baked my store bought cookies. That's homemade in my book. LOL. Make it Simple - Make it Fun.

Once you start playing, you just can't stop. This is another flower I cut with my sizzix die on my cuttlebug. I think I'm going to have fun with these die cuts. I love my cuttlebug because you can use so many different dies and folders with it. Somebody better have a Birthday. I'm making to many of these cards.
This is a card I made playing with my new sizzix die and punches. The red pedals were cut with a flower sizzix die. The blue flower was a 5 pedal punch. The white center was with a star burst punch. The white scallop was done with dotted swiss cuttlebug folder. I added glossy acent to the flower to make it shine. Added some ribbon just because. The background card was also embossed with a textured plate but it does not show up in picture. I love this kind of flower because I don't forget to water it.

I made a new template for my milk cartons. Instead of the ones I have seen with two cartons attached together with the handle in the middle, I wanted one tote big enough to hold two milk cartons with a handle in the middle. This makes the tote sturdy. I had trial and err making the template by being a greenhorn at this but I'm very pleased with the way it turned out.
