SNR blog of fun starts today!

I am excited but also nervous about this! I think I am the first blog to post for this 2 week event at Scrapbook News and Review so I did a card and project to show you all! I sure hope you enjoy it!

First the picture of band aid box:

This was done for Taylor's birthday gift card. I know she likes something to open so I thought this would be fun! I have never made one of these!

Band aid box: Rak
Paper: Sunburn
Adhesive: Glue dots
Ribbon: Stampin Up! & Offray

To start off with I measured the size of the paper I wanted to use. I wanted to leave a little white show at top and bottom. I then just cut the paper 3 by 12 trimming off the extra I did not need once I wrapped it around the box. The next step was to put a thick ribbon around so I measure it and the small ribbon by wrapping it around then cutting it to either fit tightly or to make a bow. With the handle I used a 6 in strip of ribbon in colors to match the flowers! I just tied them in a knot! It was that simple and did not take long at all. Next I made her card which is a sketch from Card Patterns.


Ribbon: Offray
Stamp: Clear Dollar Stamps
Color: Prismacolor
Ink: Stazon
Cutter: Cricut & Creative Memories
Embellie: JoAnn Essentials

This card is a 8 1/2 x 8 and scored at 4. The stunk was stamped and colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil. I used orange stickles to enhance the flower! This is done just like the sketch. I sure hope you like it. It was a fun card to do and she really liked it!

Tomorrow look for a new update with my design team card plus pictures of the new Canon Rebel XsI that I just bought over the weekend! I am so excited about it! I am reading the manual to learn how to use it, LOL! I also love the fact that I can use my 35 mm lens on it! Yippee!

Thanks for stopping! Please visit SNR for all the fun!
