Happy Independence Day-America!

What a beautiful day to honor and celebrate all that we have here in America.  We have so many blessings, and because they were endowed to us by our Creator, no man, nor any government, can take them away.

So, let us celebrate our freedom, and praise God for His providence.

Here is a quick little treat box in honor of the day.  I know I am a bit late, but it will be here for next year, too.  Of course, you can always tweak the colors for other occasions, but here it is…

Independence Day Treat Box: 1″ by 1″ by 4″

The star end of the box flips up to reveal the gumballs inside.  This box holds 4 gumballs that are about 1″ diameter.  These are Dippin’ Dots gumballs that I found at Cracker Barrel.

Here is a picture tutorial for the project:

Whisper white card stock 3″ by 11″:  Score 11″ side at 1″, 2 1/2″, 5″, 6″ and 10″.  Score the 3″ side at 1″ on both sides.

Real red card stock, cut with the Swirly Scribble Thinlit die.

Dapper Denim Star:  The bigger one is the retired Star Punch, the smaller one is from the current Wood Crate Framelits die.

Whisper White card stock: 3/4″ by 3″, stamped in Dapper Denim with “Let’s Celebrate” from the Born to be Loved stamp set.

A Stand Up Note Card Holder

Hi Everyone!

I used the bold colors of the Eastern Palace Suite to create a stand-up note card holder.  This holder has a latch that holds it closed, and a place for a mini-pen, and 4 mini note cards and envelopes.  When opened, the card holder will stand up easel-style, so the recipient can access the note cards.  The notes cards are made using 1/4 of a sheet of 8 1/2 by 11″ card stock, and when folded, measure 4 1/4″ by 2 3/4″.  The envelopes are made on the envelope punch board.
