Witch Hat

Here is an adorable Witch hat I made this weekend. I made this trianlge box a couple years ago as a Christmas Tree, it was adorable, and a bit smaller. This hat measures 4-1/4" x 5-1/4 when finished. You can stuff it with candy or little gifts. I plan on making these for Rowen and Nicks friend this year for Halloween. Club members we will be making these at our next class!

Candy Countdown Calendar kit

I love this! It is adorable and so easy to put together. The quality is again top notch especially for the price (120926, $19.95). The boxes are a good size, 1.5 x 1 7/8 x 3.5 widening to 2 1/8 x 2 5/8 at the top. The kit is meant to be used as a countdown to Christmas calendar and I plan on using it as such. But now that I have one in hand I want a second kit I can use for small Christmas gift for family and friends. A giftcard will easily fit inside as will cookies, and candy. They will also look adorable hanging on the Christmas tree!
I can't get over how much product you get with this kit. You get 25 of the boxes, if you have ever bought the cute take out boxes at a craft store you can see the value right there. And did I mention the boxes are patterned and require no adhesive? Too cute! You also get 25 pieces of  12" real red grossgrain ribbon to hang the boxes, a long strand of rope and 25 adorable tiny clothespins. The cut outs are a made of a heavy cardstock and are quite easy to punch out.
Quick and simple, just the way I like it. It leaves me room to play and add embellishments to my hearts desire. I have taken some pictures of the products as they came. You will have to sign up for my Christmas club classes and see how I step them up a notch!

New Goodies!

Yesterday I received my order for some products in the new Winter Mini. Most of the time demonstrators get to pre-order and test out products about a month before the are available to customers but these items were not yet ready. So I waited impatiently for September 1st and was excited to see Mr. Brown drive up yesterday with my beautiful brown box. 
The first product I opened was the Decor Accents "design-a-house", (120911, $5.95). SU! never ceases to amaze me with thier quality and ease of use, this product delivered on all levels. The house is made of thin glossy white chipboard, pre-cut and scored! There are instructions for assembly, as well as a life size template of each piece included. The template will come in handy for cutting my dsp to size when I want to attach them to the house, not to mention I can probably make myself another house using cardstock, hmm. Anyway, I had envisioned tracing the house and then making my own templates but SU! was kind enough to do it for me, YAY!  Last but not least the house comes with a tiny adorable golden doorknob. It screws right on and adds the perfect finishing touch. The house measures 6.25 x 6 x 5. It is a great size and priced perfectly.
Be sure to sign up for my halloween class so you too can own one of the little cuties! I took some pictures of the product before I decorate it, Enjoy! Tomorrow I will showcase another product from my brown box so stop by again.
