Boy's Day!!

Boy's Day is coming up fast on May 5th...


 All stamps are from our cling set, "Boy's Day" (CL-12)




 Sorry for the bad picture, but I'll try my best to explain.  I used a 6" x 6" piece of origami...but any printed paper will do.  Apply 1/4" double stick tape along the entire length of one side.  Fold two sides toward the center (overlapping by 3/8") to form the center back.  Make creases along both side edges.  Open the paper up and apply double stick tape to the top and bottom edges, between the 2 creases.  Tape the long sides closed...then tape the bottom edge closed.  Add your treats, then tape the top edge closed.  Use a paper crimper on top and bottom edges.

Box for Hand Sanitizers


Here's a template for this little box:


It's the perfect size to hold a bottle of hand sanitizer or other little treat!!


To make...simply cut along solid lines and fold along dotted lines.  Cut out another piece using contrasting paper (this piece will go behind the heart window.  Stamp, color and cut out your images...I used mini stamp #6040 (Emi) and #6041 (Mari).  Position contrasting paper behind window so you can center stamped images in window, glue down.  Glue the contrasting paper behind the window.  Apply double stick tape to four tabs.  Using a 1/16" hole punch, punch out three holes as indicated by the dots on the pattern.  Thread a 10" piece of cord through two holes as shown below.  Once the box is assembled, thread the cord through the final hole to tie the cover shut.

Spring!


Here's "Spring" from our newest set, Sesaons (MC-63).  I just learned how to make an origami easter basket (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBfBGnoZGL8).  It took me three tries to get the hang of it, but once you get it it's not too hard to make :)
