Valentine's Day Cracker Box

Hello Gazelle Peeps!

I love making projects with my girls. I also like being the “cool” mom at their school. I got this “title” because for the holidays or class parties, I do some type treat goodie and the kids LOVE them. I found this out because one time, I made the mistake and just sent candy. They were disappointed. I learned the kids really enjoyed receiving them. It has been my pleasure to make them happy ever since! Although this is a prototype, I do not think they will be disappointed with this one!

The cracker box was constructed by intersecting/joining shapes. In FunTime, you can add score lines or you may do that manually as I did. After the box is folded, glue the center where the treat is stored. The ribbon will hold the ends together. The children can loosen the ribbon to access the candy. Decorate as you wish! I chose to use bling, flowers, and the Vintage Hearts 0966 (inside was filled) to embellish mine.  Can you see how small they are and how well they cut on the Gazelle? Very simple project and cute to boot! This is a good project to get the little ones involved too! They can decorate and write personalized messages to their classmates while spending time with mom. It is a win win for everyone!

Thanks for stopping by. Remember to stop by BossKut to purchase files, supplies and tools for your Gazelle. Kenya~

Love You

Hello Gazelle Lovers,

I am excited to share today’s project. I will be very honest; I do not do many Valentine’s Day projects. I may do one or two cards, but this year, I was bitten by the love bug I suppose! Today I am sharing a simple card that can be used for not only Valentine’s Day but for several occasions to include weddings and anniversaries.

For this card, I made a generic Eiffel Tower using some basic shapes. I added some bling to it and popped it up on foam dots. The stamp shape was also used basic shapes. I really like how they turned out! I also used the Double Scalloped Heart 0967 with three squiggles to mock a postage stamp. Isn’t it cute? This was layers on an embossed mat.

For the sentiment, I used the O’Hannah Oval BKD129 Set. I love using this set for sentiments because it cuts so beautifully on the Gazelle! I threaded some ribbon through and added a charm. Finally, I added some Stickles.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Stop by Bosskut for supplies, files and inspiration! Kenya~

U and Me Coupon Book

Hello Gazelle Lovers,

Kenya here to share a cute little coupon book for hubby. The book was made using tags in the FunTime library. Once the tags were put on the virtual mat I sized them to 2.5”x3.75”. I added perforated lines so he can tear them cleanly when he is ready to redeem them.  This is one of my favorite features in FunTime!

I decorated the tags with some pattern papers. I also used the Vintage Heart 0966 on the cover and on the coupons to embellish it. Finally I added the stamps to represent what each coupon was good for. Since this is technically a masculine project, I did not want to go crazy embellishing. However, it is kind of hard not to since it is Valentine’s Day!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! Stop by to check out the new FunTime Software, files and inspiration! Thanks for stopping by, Kenya~
