Strawberry Treat Boxes

I love strawberry themes so much that every year for my birthday my husband throws me a strawberry party.  He makes me a strawberry cake and serves strawberry drinks and ice cream.  So, when I saw these precious strawberry treat boxes, I had to make them! I resized the file to make smaller boxes and used…

DIY Map Lampshade Makeover Tutorial

Today I’m shouting, “FINALLY!” because it’s been almost a year since I made this lamp and the lampshade has stayed plain and boring this whole time.  I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do with it until today.  I just love this “Maps of the World” paper by Hazel & Ruby so much that I wanted…

Decoupaged Paper Mache Map Box

Today I’m using “Maps of the World” lightweight paper by Hazel & Ruby to help me create this useful (and road trip travel inducing) map box.  I LOVE this map paper.  I chose to focus on the South as much as possible (with some Northern spots on top) because I’m a Southern girl.  I’ve lived…

Polar Fleece Ruffled Heart Wreath for Valentine’s Day

  I’m super late to the ruffled wreath craft and didn’t even know it!  Somehow I’ve not noticed them or if I have they traveled to the, “I’ll probably never make that but I wish I would” category in my mind.  Inspired by the recently finding (or refinding) of this pinned project from 2010, I decided…

No Sew Felt Gift Card or Candy Holder with Cut’N’Boss

There’s something so warm and cozy about making projects with felt around the holidays.  This whole project could have just as easily been made with paper but the felt?  It just makes whatever’s given in those little pouches seem like even more of a treat to me.  Want easy?  This is a no sew project!…

How to Make No Sew Felt Ornaments

I have two corner Christmas trees in my front foyer and they are totally naked except for lights.  I’ve been putting them up that way for about 10 years.  I like to think of them in fancy terms as a “lighted tree entrance to the decorated tree” but truth be told,  they’re just naked.  My…

Thanksgiving Silverware Holders with Epiphany Crafts

Happy almost Thanksgiving everyone!  I thought it would be nice to create personalized silverware holders for my family to use on Thanksgiving.  I used file #68389 in the Silhouette Store which is for an envelope/bag.  I just stretched the design out so it would be long enough to fit my silverware.  If you make this…

How to Create a Felt Leaf Grapevine Wreath

This felt leaf grapevine wreath project is so easy and so fun.  You just need cheap felt from your local craft store, a leaf die (I’m using Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves), a grapevine wreath, a hot glue gun and a die cutting machine.  I’m using the Cut ‘n’ Boss. I love the Cut ‘n’ Boss…

Friends Owlways Faux Wood Crate

I previously shared this post on the Core’dinations blog. How cute is this fun crate?  It’s been a month since I originally shared this post on the Core’dinations blog and I want you to know that this crate is still kickin’!  After the chocolates mysteriously disappeared, (How did that happen?  A mystery for sure.), I…

How to Alter a Simple Notebook & Pen for a Unique Look

It’s so creatively rewarding to give a makeover to an item so that it can reflect your style or to alter something for a gift.  I love to do that!  This started as a plain brown notebook.  Yawn.  It would get lost in a sea of other plain brown notebooks, if not for using a…
