This is kinda of a funny story! This bag started out to be a normal
2-5-7-10 bag, but as it ended up its not. I wasn't paying real close
attention when I was cutting and it got cut 1 1/2"to short. Instead
tossing it and starting over, decided to keep going and see how it
would come out. Re scored the top and used Martha Stewart
boarder punch on the top. I also punched out a liner for the top to
and set it a hair off so you can see the contrast. Next I cut
Spellbinders(Nestabilities) Label Eight in two different sizes.
Used some ribbon, flower and a brad. Walla! The project is done,
just a little shorter. The saying is "Stranger's are just friends waiting
to happen". It would be a nice little gift for a Temp in the office or
a new neighbor.
This is the favor boxes I am doing for my daughter's wedding in September. These boxes were found on Tie the Knot cartridges. They were done at 8 1/2" I cut out 100 wedding dresses and embossed them with the cuttlebug embossing folder. It takes longer than you think. But it's easy on the pocket book. I have the Tuxes cut out too, but I haven't scored them yet. I got to thinking that this cartridge would be great for prom's. So I came up with a couple of prom dresses below. Hope you like them.
I had a great time doing the prom Theme. There are some great paper's out there to pick from. On this one I gathered some ribbon on the top for a ruffle. It would be great to give this to your daughter on prom night for her and her date or for your son and his date. Let me tell you the guys like having the treat just as much as the girls do. It would also be great to do if you were on the prom committee for everyone on the tables. What a great decorations. The sky is the limits on your imagination with these favor boxes.

Mother's Day Purse Treat Box
I Started with the pizza box for the base. Thanks to Jen Muro for coming up with the
Pizza Box. The purse shape I came up with. It's a take off from the Top Note Box.
I was trying to think out side the box.
1). I used Winter Wonderland Cartridge.
a). Use shift key and then use the 3rd key
b). 2nd row 4th across width 4.27 and height 4.99
c). cut 2
2). I used wire ribbon to use for handles for the purse.
a). attach with heavy duty double sided tape on the pizza box. You can find
the instruction to the pizza box at
3). Top of pocket was cut from Winter Wonderland Cartridge at
Shift key and then use the 3rd key, 2nd row 4th across Width 3.27 and Height 3.63
4). Pocket dimension are 1 3/4" X 3"
a). I used Martha Stewart score board to use for scoring.
b). Score at 1/8" and 1/4" on 3 sides.
c). cut the corners off on the bottom,where the bottom and sides meet.
5). Fold on folds and attach the top of the pocket to the bottom of the pocket.
6). Attach to purse using heavy duty double sided tape.
7). Cut tag out at 1.57 width and 2.50 height
8). Printed my saying on the tag. (Mothers hold their children hands for a short while,
but their hearts forever. Happy Mother's Day)
Here is a little tip for you. You can either stamp a saying on your tag or you can
type up a saying and print it out on copy paper and then attach your tag to the
copy paper (where you have printed your saying) with repositional tape and run it through your printer again. It will come out on your tag.

Easter Treat Box
I know, I'm a little late on posting this. In my defence I ended up making 60
of these boxes. 20 for my grandson's class, 10 for our immediate family and
30 for our nephews and niece's on Easter. (My husband is from a family
of 14 kids). I used my gyspy and the Easter cartridge to cut it out.
1). I went in to the Easter 2010 cartridge and picked the box out
a). 5Th row 10Th across.
b). Width 5.66 and Height 5.84
2). Then I selected the egg shape
a). 2nd row 9Th across.
b). Center the egg over the bunny until it's larger. Width 1.62 Height 2.16
c). I used Grafix Clear-Lay Plastic Film to cover the egg shape hole.
3). Then I selected the egg shape
a). 2nd row 8Th across width 1.93 Height 2.16
b). I cut the 3 middle ridges out of the center.
