Stampin Up Curvy Keepsake Box Die 'Tea Light' Tutorial

Hello there!
My apologies for the lack of posts lately but I have been busy making things for several craft fares.

Finally my Stampin Up Curvy Keepsake Die arrived after it being on back order as it was out of stock - yay!!
 I thought that I would show you a picture tutorial of how to put it together:

Firstly cut out 2 die cuts of DSP or card stock (I used my big shot):

Next curve the edge with the rounded top (the handle) with a bone folder:
Here is my 'top tip' if you would like to punch a hole in it - place a post it punched hole where you would like the hole to be:
Then you can just punch it out knowing that it will be perfectly placed!:
Now put some double sided tape (sticky strip) on the bottom square:
Next place the second die cut on top:
As I used vellum I then added a punched out piece of card stock to make it more stable but you would not need this for something more heavy weight.
Now pinch the two handles together and then fold over one of the pointed sides to close it:
Next fold over the other pointed edge:
VoilĂ !! You now have a Tea Light candle holder (battery operated of course!):

The tag die comes with the set and there are three in total.
I have made lot's more of these but will show you those another time as I'm sure this post has quite enough photos!!

So I hope that my tutorial makes sense!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.

Snowman Soup

Good evening blog world!

I have some Snowman Soup to show you today:

I tried to make it look like a mug!

My Snowman Soup contains Hot Chocolate, Candy Cane and Marshmallow. The poem was a free download.

The Snowman Soup that I have seen online normally contain mini Marshmallows but I couldn't be bothered didn't want to bag it up separately so I just bought a stick of it!! (please don't tell me that it looks stupid as I already know!!).

Anyway I have a craft fayre coming up so I'll put them on my stall (at the back!!)

Thank you for visiting me today and I hope you have a lovely evening.

As I used snippets of card I will enter Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge.

For my project today I used Stampin Up cardstock and a retired stamp set called Snow Day. To make the Snowman sparkle I used Whisper White Craft ink pad and whilst it was still wet I sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds glitter:


Lovely As A Tree

Good morning all.
Here is my entry for the Less Is More Challenge where the theme is 'More than one tree':
Now it is a good job that I took this picture before I ruined it! This is a valuable lesson to know when to step away from the card - just when I thought that I was getting better!!

Here is the ruined card (with the addition of Dazzling Diamonds):

Hopefully I will remember this next time I think to myself - 'I'll just add.......' !

Thanks for stopping by my blog  and have a fabulous day.
