Felt flower headband

CBTSFacebookHighlight-4Today’s project is intended to inspire you to get busy on your next project and to enter it in our ‘Create behind the seams’ mini challenge that we’re hosting along with Pellon. For all the details on the challenge see here.

I feel like summer is the season to be wearing flowers in your hair, am I right?! If not real flowers, how about the felt kind? They won’t droop and die and will look fresh and pretty all day long! (The same cannot necessarily be said about your hair, if you have hair like mine).IMG_2382I absolutely love making felt flowers! Not only does it feel relaxing to work with such soft material in my hands, it also looks soft and lovely when worn.

Father’s Day Coasters

IMG_2687I’m going to bet you have some scraps of fabric needing to be used up for small projects. I’m also certain you’re starting to thinking about Father’s Day (coming up on June 15). Here’s a win-win project that uses just a small amount of fabric and a little bit of time.

I used two different prints and made my coasters reversible. Retro glasses on one side and Pac Man (or Pac Men?) on the other.

Fox Box

I’ve been wanting to write that post title ever since my brain starting figuring out how to make the Fuse Favor Wrap die into a fox! I think foxes are still going to be huge this year – and wouldn’t they make a cute birthday party theme?!? IMG_1451I used my Petal by Petal punches to create the ears, cheeks and nose and drew a tail free hand and glued it to the back of the  box. For the eyes, I used my tiny circle Pop Up punch and the center of the eyes were the circle from the L Petal by Petal punch. Sometimes I think that the hardest part of creating something like this is getting the scale correct on all the features.IMG_1452Now to consider what theme-appropriate treats to put inside the fox box! Any thoughts?




Spring treats


IMG_1088IMG_1110Today I’m sharing these little springtime treat boxes I made up using the Favor Wrap Large Design Set for the Fuse. I made the large flower embellishments using a variety of lever punches and squeeze punches. I crimped the scalloped circle flowers to give them some dimension and used leaves cut with the Petal by Petal squeeze punch. Again, I folded the leaves in half for added dimension, and used a variety of textured cardstock.IMG_1103 IMG_1093Fill sacks with jellybeans or marshmallows and slip inside these favor wraps for a pretty springtime gift.
