Halloween Truffle Boxes

November 16, 2007 at 7:59 pm | Posted in Projects, Stampin' Up! | 1 Comment

Okay, so I know I’m weeks late posting this.  But I think these boxes are really cute & I plan to make them again for Christmas.

I used a simple box template, then cut a square out of the lid and put a window sheet in its place to show my yummy handmade peanut butter & chocolate truffles.  The boxes would look even better with a stamped tag or accent.

I’ll be taking advantage of the Paper Party Promotion this month to order plenty of Christmas papers.  I think the Wintergreen, Dashing & Cerise Designer Series Papers will make gorgeous truffle (and other) boxes for Christmas. 

By the way, these cute Halloween papers are from the Creepy Crawly Designer Series and would look great to scrapbook your pictures from this Halloween.



Thanksgiving Table Decorations

November 9, 2007 at 10:42 am | Posted in Events, Projects, Stamp Set- Autumn Fest, Stamp Sets, Stampin' Up!, Technique- Home Decor | 1 Comment

I’ve been working on things to decorate my table on Thanksgiving day.  We’ll be hosting the dinner for my husband’s family.

Here’s what I’ve come up with…


I’m making napkin rings with both the olive-colored leaf shown here and the red leaf on the photo frame.  They will be placed at alternating seats at the table.

The stamped wine glass charms will each be a little different.  Not only are they pretty, but people will know which glass is theirs if they set it down somewhere.  I’ll be using different leafs in a variety of colors.

If you’d like to make these decorations to impress your guests this Thanksgiving, I’m having a class next Tuesday, Nov 13th at 6:30pm.  Check out my Events page for details.  Let me know soon if you’d like to attend.
