3-D Day

Today I spent most of my craft time working on handmade gifts.  Most are well within the $5.00 range, so they're perfect for little "thinking of you" gifts or for those people on your list that you want to give a little something to – but not break your budget.  Of course, after you add your time, creativity and caring to the project, it's priceless! 

Since I'm not going to be in my stamp room again until Monday, I'm just going to show you a couple today. 

This is the cutest little box made with acetate (or "window sheets" or "overhead transparencies,"  whatever you want to call them!).

I know – it's a little weird having Candy Corn in the box marked, "Don't open till Christmas."  But I wanted to use my Frosty Day designer paper, and Candy Corn went with it so well.

We'll be making these in workshops and classes next month, so be sure to get in on a class.  Here is the post on splitcoaststampers with the directions.

This would be perfect as a placecard for a family dinner.  You could put the person's name in the frame, and add a little candy.  You could even put in a small votive with some greenery.  (Don't burn it in the box, though, unless it's a battery operated one!)

This is a candy jar I made for Mike's real estate office.  The secretary, Susan, always has a jar of candy on her desk, so I thought I'd "pretty it up" a little.

Again, it uses the Frosty Day designer paper.  I  added a little piece of Bashful Blue card stock with some "Snowburst" snowflakes.  "sweet" is from a new baby stamp, and I just colored the word I wanted with a Chocolate Chip marker.  The frame is Styled Silver hodgepodge hardware, and that's Old Olive wide grosgrain around the top.

This one's filled with candy, but you could put a baking mix with a recipe, or small cookies, or bath salts. 

I'll show you some more tomorrow!
