More Creations

I have been very busy the last couple of weeks and found the opportunity to do a bit of crafting and wanted to share with you some of my creations.  Some old, some new and some altered ideas...

These little diaper fold treat containers are so easy and so cute that you could just sit there and fold and fold and fold. Since I have a booth at the Alamo Craft Co. I make most of my craft designs to sale. I taught this as a Make & Take class during one of the Scrapbooking Factories Monthly Weekend Crops. The ladies really enjoyed it. I am really fond of the "Quite Contrary" line by My Minds Eye, it is so fun and the thick weight of the paper is perfect for its sturdiness. The Prima floral flower petals where absolutely perfect for this project. I also cut out circles of various shapes using contrasting scraps and made "A Treat For You" tag, I also used the clear decorative cellophane bags that I got from Michael's, the bags have a drawstring ribbon already attached. These would make great party favors especially for a baby shower.

Next I made a couple of purses using a scalloped shape from the Cricuts, "Bags, Tags & Boxes" I used the 5 1/2 setting and then I cut it in half for a front and back. I also used Bazzil Paper flowers, Prima leaves and BoBunny Rhinestones for the flower Center. I used a small paper bag to adhere the scalloped shape to the front and Bag. I eventually thought the bags needed a little something more so I added some pink organza ribbon, which made even prettier. Sorry I didn't update the photo, but can't you just see it?

Next I was at Hobby Lobby looking for something specific and I ran across this really cute Canvas Bag and I had to grab one because I knew that there was something I could do with it. I thought about this really pretty set of fabric flowers that I saw at The Scrapbooking Factory and I knew that it would be perfects. Voila' here is the results, it matched the canvas bag perfectly. I really like that the flower petal is over sized and hangs over the bag a little here and a little their. It's just like my life sometimes, so I can relate. I've got to get more bags!!!!

Hope you enjoyed my little treats. It's lots of fun. GOD Bless and Have a great week!
