Good morning...I know that this is getting to you later than usual but yesterday was a great day and posting by blog..."just simply did not happen"...why? Well, I great drive with John in the countryside and YES - we did get to see my boys (horses) Oscar and Stanley - and then my great Dad came to dinner to do an early celebration with us for his 84th Birthday!
Here is another "OLDIE BUT GOODIE" and I know that I have blogged about this before and it has been "all around the stampin' town" but I adore it - so easy yet so fun!
How can a "Sour Cream" container be so darn cute?
Easy-peasy.....because it was made with your heart and hands! Now - I all know that we have a TON of paper and we look at it and say WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH YOU? Does this ring a bell?
The best thing is making these little dreams is the best as you can really use just bout any size of paper, Today I am using the paper stack and not cutting it one bit -
If you are like me, you stock up on these paper stacks . These make up SUPER little gifts, table decorations, party favors etc...and you really would not have to put any candy in it - you could fill it with inspiration quotes, a note...
So easy, so fast, let's get going! It is literally like 1,2,3!
- Take your paper from a paper stack, today I am using the Stacked with Love Stack and simply place sticky strip on 3 sides (1short side and both long sides)
- Expose the short side only, then I find it easier to use the piercing tool - pull off one of the long sides and squeeze together!
- Fill with FUN and LOVE and then turning the pouch to the other side, squeeze the opposite sides together to form then FUN treat! (hopefully the pictures will help!)
- To decorate....the sky is the limit but because I still have the "critters" and the "snuggle & smooches" out on my work area, I said why not! Soooooo darn cute!
I loved the sentiment on my little bear! Using the blendabilties is like having "power steering"...they are a DREAM and just glide right onto the paper!
Now for the super fun "feel good" for the day!
Get ready because this is super special...my Dad is leaving on Wednesday to meet up with his other 3 siblings to go to Myrtle Beach to spend a week together....is that the BEST or what!
I have a "bag of 6" ready for him to take with him for his Valentines Dinner table treat to have with his siblings. I just think that it is great that they are going this....(Uncle George is 87...Aunt Jean is 86....my Dad will be 84 on the 18th...and Aunt Anne....the baby is 75)
So for a SUPER quick and easy Valentine goodie to make up - I say GO FOR IT, I am sure that you have lots of paper around - it simply can not be easier!
Tomorrow I have a FUN technique that I tried....now I cannot say that it is the easiest but it is really, really cute and I think that once I made many of them - it would be super easy! I hope you can POP back tomorrow!
Sorry for the late post....please feel free to email me if I can help you and I thank YOU for YOU!
p.s. - tomorrow will be the NEW weekly deals and there is a new stamp set coming out that I am super excited about!
