“CHOCOLATE AND CUPCAKES”

Last Saturday I held my Autumn Mini Catalogue Launch.  Sorry it has taken so long to get back here to show you the projects we created.  It has been a busy week.  There are only 2 days of school left for the term and I can now breathe a sigh of relief that all the school projects are done!!! There have been some marathon efforts put in here – and a few tears!  So I can get back to some other creating!

With the new Autumn Mini Catalogue out now there are lots of great new toys to play with.  Firstly I will show you the Make and Takes we did last Saturday.  We used the ‘Eat Chocolate’  and the Scallop Square Duo Die to create a mini scallop bag.

We cut 2 of the larger scallops from the Scallop Square Duo from Rose Red.  We cut the bottom row of scallops off and adhered the pieces to a small box we created.  (Check below for the instructions).  To decorate the box we stamped the image in Rose Red onto Whisper White and it was stamped again in Chocolate Chip.  Just the chocolate was cut out and raised up with dimensionals.  The image was stamped again in Rose Red and stamped on Regal Rose.  This was punched out with the Word Window punch and raised up with dimensionals too.  The white was then matted onto Regal Rose before adhering it to the box. The handle is a strip of Rose Red card and adhered to the box using Sticky Strip or Snail.  The strip measures 1.5cmx21cm.  Some Organza ribbon is tied around the handle to finish it off.

You can see in this photo below that the box is not very wide.  (it’s a bit in shadow though sorry).  It is just big enough for a note card and small chocolate.

To create the box, cut card 9.5cm x 12.5cm.  On the 9.5cm side, score at 1.5cm and 8cm.  Turn the card, Score card and 5.5cm and 7cm.  On this side, cut the 2  centre score lines up to the scored line that runs across.  Add sticky strip or snail adhesive to the small tabs and 2 of the side tabs.  Assemble the box.  Hope that makes sense???

We also made a card with the Create a Cupcake stampset and punch.

This is a small square card.  The card base measures 21cmx10.5cm and scored at 10.5cm.  I have cut a scallop square again, this time from Regal Rose.  I created the cupcake using various elements in the stampset and with the co-ordinating punch.  These are so fun to put together.  You can create the cupcake however you like.  It is so good there is a punch to go with this set.  This makes the creating so much easier!!  I really like the font  on the sayings too.

There are lots more projects to show you but that is enough for now.  I really need to get to bed!  Stop by again soon and I will show you some more.
