This little Easter Treat Box is one that I custom designed. It was inspired by a circle card that we learned how to make at Stampin’ Up!’s Leadership Convention. I started with their basic design and altered it into a 3 dimensional box. You can see a side view of the box below:

Supplies used for this project: • • • • Stamps: A Good Egg Ink: Black Staz On, Basic Black Stampin’ Spot (you could use a Black Stampin’ Write Marker), So Saffron and Pumkin Pie Classic Ink, So Saffron and Going Gray WWC (watercolor wonder crayon) Paper: 12" x 12" So Saffron CS, 1 1/2" x 11" piece of Chocolate Chip CS, 1" x 11" piece of Bashful Blue CS, scraps of Whisper White CS and Chocolate Chip CS Accessories: 8" piece and a 6" piece of wide chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, On Board Ginormous Pieces Chipboard – the largest circle was punched out and the "frame" used as a template, corner rounder punch with the guard removed, stamp-a-ma-jig, blender pen, personal paper trimmer with scoring blade, medium cello bag, Stampin’ Dimensionals, paper snips, white Signo Gel Pen, paper crimper, bone folder

You can access the template HERE. Step-by-Step Directions Step 1: Align the template with the top corner of the 12" x 12" piece of So Saffron CS. Using a pencil, trace the outline of the circle. The diameter of the circle is aobut 8 1/2" so if you don’t have the template shown below, any circle shape or circle cutter that has a circle of approximately the same size will work. Even if the circle is a tad bit smaller or a tad bit bigger the project will still work.

Step 2: Cut out the circle along the pencil lines. Line it up with your grid paper as shown and using a ruler if necessary, make a pencil line on the left and right sides of the circle at 3" and at 3 1/2" as shown.

Step 3: Line up the pencil marks with the channels on your personal paper trimmer and score all the way across the circle along both the 3" mark and then the 3 1/2" marks.

Step 4: Fold along the 3" score line (using your bone folder) , then line up the fold along the top edge of the personal paper trimmer. You are going to score at: 1 5/8", 2 1/8", 6 3/8" and 6 7/8". **Note: when you are aligning your folded circle, you are NOT lining up the largest part of the circle with these dimensions – you are lining up the very top left corner of the fold.

Step 5: Crease along all the score lines using your bone folder. Your template will look like this:

Step 6: Using your paper snips, cut out the two smaller pieces of the circle, following the innermost (towards the center of the circle) score lines.

Step 7: Flip the circle over. Stamp the small flower stamp all over the back of the circle using So Saffron ink. Color in the center of each small flower using a white signo gel pen.

Step 8: Flip the template back over, fold in the side flaps, add sticky strip along the left and right edges of the bottom flap as shown in the picture.

Step 9: Peel of the backing from the sticky strip and carefully bring up the bottom flap and align and stick onto the side flaps so that the box looks as shown. I found it easier to peel of the backing and stick one side at a time.

Step 10: Take your 1 1/2" x 11" strip of Chocolate Chip CS and score and fold at 1 3/4". Lay this fold over the front right edge of the box, and using your fingers carefully shape the belly band around the creases. Do this one crease at a time by gently pinching the CS over the crease to get an "impression" of the crease. After each crease, remove the belly band, place it onto the grid paper and fully crease as shown in Step 11.

Step 11: Each time you crease the areas that you pinched, make sure that the sides of the CS strip are aligned, this will ensure your crease line is straight.

Step 12: Once you have finished going over step 10 and 11 for each crease, use your corner rounder punch to create a scalloped edge on each side of the CS strip. If you’ve never used your corner rounder to create a scalloped edge click HERE to see a tutorial that was created by Beate Johns.

Step 13: You will be overlapping the ends on the backside of the box. Notice from the picture below, that if you were to do that right now, you would see where the scallops do not quite match up. The next step will help you solve that problem. Before you move on though, take a pencil and make a small mark on the top and bottom right where the flap overlaps. ends.

Step 14: Take your paper snips and cut away the scallops from the bottom flap as shown in the picture.

Step 15: Attach the belly band. As you can see, now when you overlap the flaps, you no longer see the mis-matched scalloped edges. Use your snips to tidy it up a little if you need to.

Step 16: This is what the front of the box now looks like.

Step 17: Take your 1" x 11" strip of Bashful Blue CS, score and fold it at 1 3/4", and then shape it around the box, the same way you did the chocolate chip belly band.

Step 18: Once you’ve creased and folded your belly band so that is fits around the box, remove it and on the longer end, stamp "happy easter" just to the left of the score line. Use your Stamp-a-ma-jig if nessary. Mount the band so that it is centered in the chocolate chip band. This time though, the "seam" where the two ends overlap will end up on the front right side of the box. This seam will be covered by the ribbon.

Step 19: Take some Chocolate Chip CS scraps and run them through a crimper. Using a paper trimmer or the SU table top cutter, cut them into very thin strips. Crunch up the strips and gently rub them between your palms. This will become the filler for your treat box.

Step 20: Tie your 8" piece of ribbon around the Bashful Blue CS strip – position it so that it covers where the ends overlap – and tie in a knot. Stamp, color and cut out your chick and the half egg shell and mount. Fill your medium cello bag with your treats -remember the box is only 1/2" deep so the treats have to lay relatively flat. Tie the cello bag shut with the 6" piece of ribbon tied ina knot. Place a little tissue on the inside bottom of the box for "padding", insert your treat then stuff a little filler along both sides. You’re done! Birthday Box : LID : 12 x 12 inch Card stock score all 4 side at 2 ¾ “ and cut upto the score line up and down. Bottom: Take a 12 x 12 inch card stock and cut 1/8 “ on 2 sides of card stock. Score all 4 sides at 2 ¾ “ and fold all the score lines cut slits up and down Apply sticky strip on 4 sides of the slit made above on the up side. Close the box

Twinkle Twinkle little Star... with NO adhesive

Hi girls .. Here is the Star tutorial I really hope this makes sense to you .. 1st of all you will need a 6x6 piece of Designer paper , Bone folder, Cutter ( for scoring) Scissors and a long body stapler and some type of cord or ribbon Thats it ... Ok are you ready to begin ? Remember you can click photo to enlarge .

Score your 6x6 piece of Designer paper at 1,2,3,4,& 5

what ever side you want your star design to be you will lay your 6x6 piece of DS paper face down ( shown in photo )

Start by folding your DS paper accordian style as shown

in photo. Continue folding by flipping and folding until you reached the end

This will be what the TOP of your star accordian fold will look like REMEMBER this is the TOP with the 3 mountain tops and YOU will be cutting the other side " Bottom " ( This is VERY important girls )

Next you will Then insert your accordian folded strip into your cutter and score a light mark at 3" this will be the center of your strip ( This mark only severs as a reminder for the next step .. If you can eye ball the center then skip this step Hee! Hee!

Ok Now using the long body stapler you will staple in the center ( as shown in this photo ) over top of the light score line you made in previous step

Ok now we are ready for cutting .. REMEMBER you will always be cutting on the BOTTOM side ( Refer back to step 5) ok place your thumb over the center staple and this will serve as your guide where to cut I am right handed so my cuts and the bottom of the strip is facing right ( Very important girls )

Ok now start cutting at an angle to the top left side .. start cutting just below your thumb ( as shown in photo ) If you need to cut more you can always cut more off later But you can never put it back on so until you make your 1st one it is always better to cut less than to MUCH KWIM? wink wink !

Next Flip your strip upward and cut the next side the same way as shown in photo . Using your thumb as your guide again

Ok once your done cutting your angles this is what the BOTTOM of your star will look like Ok now comes the folding .. Remember once you get the folding part down you will just play around with your finished star making adjustments to postion your star YOU will not need any adhesive

Ok next fold one panel at a time upward making a crease to have it stand up shown in the photo . You may want to fold the accordian strip in half to make this part easier just to get the center creased so each panel will stand upward

OK here comes the trick girls I really think the photo explains this best since I find it hard to put into words .. Ok I will try . once you have your panel standing upward take your panel and lay it down to your table making sure to make the triangle Point in the center .. You see the star forming now dont you ??

Continue doing this to all the panels as shown in previous step .

Once you have done all your panels now comes the playing ... just postion your star panels by adjusting them and pushing the centers out or in whatever you want your finished Star to look like. Final step is punch a tiny hole in the top of one panel and add your cording .. TA DA you made your Star for decorating your Home , tree and or gifts . Dont you just love it ??

Dawns EXTRA Bonus TIP: Now you can make even smaller stars using these directions BUT to make a smaller star cut your piece of DS paper at 3x3 and score at 1/2" , 1", 1 1/2", 2" & 2 1/2" and follow the steps above this makes such a cute tiny tiny star. I hope you had fun making your stars girls have a fabulous day and thanks for peeking in today ..

This origami video shows how to make a box with a lid out of two square sheets of paper. This fold makes a great gift box for presents. In this video, I use 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper. The box comes out to be 3 x 3 x 6 inches. Your box dimensions will be N/4 x N/4 x N/2, where “N” is the original edge length of your square paper… yes, origami and math go hand in hand. Materials: 1. Two square pieces of paper. 1. One piece will be the lid and one piece will be the box bottom… you may choose different colors if you like. 2. The paper should be a heavy weight (or card stock) to give the box some stability. 2. You may want to use tape to more permanently secure the lid to the box. Clear packing tape works well. 3. You may want to cut a piece of foam or batting and place it in the box bottom for presentation purposes. 1 5 9 13 • • • • • • 2 3 4 6 7 8 10 11 12 14 15 16 Make the 12X12 Paper into 16 Squares as above.(Same for the lid) Fold 1 and 4 SQ inside.Fold the whole top Row upto 3rd Row.(LID : Fold 1 and 4 SQ inside , fold 1 to 4 SQ half and now fold 1 to 13 and 4 to 16 inside) Turn the Paper Back side.

Proceed in this way to complete the bottom,

PAPER STAR This origami video shows how to make origami lucky stars, or what I like to call puffy (or p.diddy) stars. For this you’ll need a long thin strip of paper. The tradition is that you fill a jar with these things and give them to someone you like. I’ve also heard that, like the origami paper crane, if you make a 1000 of these, your wish will be granted. Materials:

Long thin strip of paper. In this origami video, I’m using 15mm x 310mm paper (about 1/4 inch by 12 inches) 1. you can buy special strips specifically for these stars… 2. you can use a paper cutter to make your own strips from some fancy paper like scrapbook paper (that’s what I did) 3. you can cut up old magazines and catalogs (great idea that I saw on foldingtrees.com) PAPER LOTUS WITH PETALS This origami video shows how to make a lotus flower out of six separate sheets of paper. There is a way to make a lotus out of just one sheet, but I think this fold is a little easier and looks better because you can make the petals and leaves different colors. Materials: 1. You will need six rectangular sheets (the sheets I use in this video are 4cm x 7cm, but you can use any size proportional to those dimensions. yes, origami and math go hand in hand). 1. 3 of the sheets will become petals (choose a color) 2. 3 of the sheets will become leaves (choose a different color) 2. You will need something to bind the sheets together. In this video, I use a small piece of yellow pipe cleaner so it will look like pollen when viewed from above. Some alternative binding materials are: 1. rubber band 2. twist tie 3. string or yarn (you’ll need to tie it FROG BASE This origami video shows you how to make the frog base. From the frog base, you can of course make an origami hopping frog; however, this base is used in a number of other folds, such as the lily, a snail and even an X-wing fighter from star wars. Materials: 1. One square sheet of paper. ORCHID FLOWER

This origami video shows how to make what I call an orchid flower. I’ve never seen this pattern in print, and I actually discovered it when I made a mistake while trying to fold a traditional lily / iris flower from memory. It starts with the frog base, and is nearly identical to the lily / iris except for one key step when forming the petals Materials: 1. One square sheet of paper 2. pipe cleaner – optional 3. stem tape – optional Make SQ BASE from Above .2 flaps on top and 2 flaps on Bottom. LILLY This origami video shows how to make a traditional origami lily flower. It starts with the frog base, which is included in this video, but if you already know the frog base, you can make one and then skip ahead in the video. I use a pencil to help shape the petals at the end, but any smooth (so not to tear the paper) rounded object will work – chop stick, pen, screwdriver, etc **note: the origami lily and iris are the same pattern Materials: 1. One square sheet 2. pipe cleaner – optional 3. stem tape – optional BELL FLOWER This origami video shows how to make a flower that is bell or trumpet shaped. The frog base is required for this fold. This flower can be easily modified to take on different looks and purposes. It is the same flower used on my “lucky flower box.” I will release a video at a later date (mid to late April) showing how to modify and arrange this flower and a few others. Stay tuned. Materials: 1. One square sheet of paper

1. If you know the frog base, start with that and skip to step 3 in the video. X WING FIGHTER This origami video shows how to make an X-Wing Fighter from the Star Wars movies. My instructions are based on diagrams by Philip Schulz of The Happy Magpie. To make this X-Wing, you’ll need to start with the origami frog base. You can view that instructional video below. Materials: 1. One square sheet of paper Additional Resources:

Square Base:

BIRD BASE This video starts from the origami square base and shows how to make an origami bird base. As you might guess from the name, the bird base is used when making the traditional origami crane; however, it can be used as a starting point for other origami patterns as well so it’s good to learn how to make this fold. Materials: 1. One square sheet of paper SUARE BASE This video shows how to make an origami square base. The square base is a commonly used starting point for many other origami patterns so it’s good to learn how to make this fold. Materials: 1. One square sheet of paper • Fold the SQ piese of paper half .(color part to be outside) and Unfold • Fold the SQ paper into half in other dorection • Make a triangle fold on all directions

WATER BOMB BASE This origami video shows you how to make the traditional origami water bomb base. With this base you can make the origami water bomb (paper balloon) of course, but the fold is used in many other types of origami like this spaceship and tank, and this butterfly. Materials: 1. One square sheet of paper BUNNY RABBIT This video shows how to make an origami bunny rabbit. It starts with the water bomb base, and just like the water bomb, you have to blow it up. I suppose like a water bomb you could also fill it up with water and toss it at a friend. These are fun for spring or Easter decorations, and when you make them with pinks or yellows, they kinda look like peeps! You gotta love fluffy marshmallows covered in ultra-bright heavily dyed refined sugar…. Materials: 1. One square sheet of paper PAPER BUTTERFLY In this video, I show you how to make one style of origami butterfly. This origami butterfly starts from the water bomb base. Materials: 1. One square sheet of paper… in this video I use 150 mm x 150 mm origami paper PAPER BALLOON This origami video shows how to make an origami paper balloon. Some people call it the waterbomb. I guess you can fill it up with water and throw it at someone, but I usually just toss it around like a ball or insert a hook and hang it for decoration. In this video I use a 12 x 12 inch piece of scrapbook paper; The finished product comes out to be roughly 3 x 3 x 3 inches; Your balloon dimensions will be N/4 x N/4

x N/4, where “N” is the original edge length of your square paper ( yes, origami and math go hand in hand). Materials:

One square sheet of paper (I use scrapbook paper which is a little on the thick side, so it’s a little harder to inflate, but keeps it’s shape better) If you want to hang this as a decoration, you can use a paper clip or a hook.

PAPER CRANE This origami video builds on what was shown in my square base and bird base videos (shown below… just scroll down), and shows how to make a traditional origami crane. This is a very popular fold, and probably the one that people ask me for the most often when they find out I do origami… So if you learn this fold, either keep it secret or be prepared to make lots of cranes for friends and family. On the bright side however, legends say that if nyou can fold 1000 of these, your wishes will come true. Materials: 1. One sheet of square paper PAPER DOVE This origami video shows how to make a simple origami bird. Instead of the popular origami crane, this bird looks more like a dove or pigeon. In this video I use 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper. Your finished product will be a little longer than half of your original paper dimensions. I also show how to quickly and easily turn the dove into a hanging decoration. Materials:

1. One square sheet of paper 2. Paperclips (optional) to use as hooks for hanging your dove as a decoration 3. Clear tape (optional) 4. Micro screwdriver (optional) or something small and pointed to make a hole for the hook 5. Multi-tool (optional) or some kind of pliers to reshape the paperclips into hooks MOON AND SUN This origami video shows how to make an eight point star from eight squares. This is sometimes called a “the sun and moon” origami fold or “star and moon” origami fold because it starts out as a circle and then you transform it into a star. This is one of my all time favorite folds. **this fold was designed by Robert Neale and published in the book “Origami: Plain and Simple”** Materials: 1. Eight squares all the same size 1. In this video I use 10 x 10 cm card stock squares that I cut (I use my trusty Carl brand rotary paper cutter) from larger sheets 2. The final product is about 15 cm across at it’s widest 2. I like to use 2 different colors, but of course you can use 1 or up to 8 colors in any combination DISC SLEEVES This origami video shows two quick and easy ways to make your own disc sleeves. This is a great way to save money and protect CD’s, DVD’s and even video games. If you’ve made a mixed CD as a gift, making your own sleeve is a nice way to further personalize the gift. Materials: 1. 8.5 x 1. 2. 3. 11 inch paper You can use copy / printer paper and decorate and label it You can use pre-patterned paper (say that 10 times fast) You can use pages from magazines or catalogs (that’s what I use in the video)

PAPER CUP I use 6 x 6 inch (~15 cm) paper and end up with a cup that has approximately a 3.5 inch (~9 cm) mouth and is 2.5 inches (~6.25 cm) deep Materials : Square paper

PAPER BOOKLET This video shows how to make a quick and simple booklet from two sheets of paper.The finished product will have a front and back cover, and two sheets ( 4 pages front & back) in the middle. Materials: 1. Two sheets of paper. For this video I use two 8.5 x 11 inch sheets, but you can use any size depending on what you want your booklet to look like. 2. Scissors PAPER TANK This origami video shows how to make a cool little tank. It’s very similar to an origami spaceship fold that I’ve made a video for. I used make tons of these things and wage little wars on my desk in school. Materials: 1. One sheet of rectangular paper (notebook or printer paper works great) 2. One sheet of smaller paper. If you’re using an 8.5 x 11 inch sheet then a post-it note will work well.

#1 you will cut your cs in to 4 pieces each piece measures 3X6

#2 score all 4 pieces the photo

at 1.5 vertical as shown in

#3 Ok now score on both ends of each piece at 1.5 "

#4 Ok now butt 2 of your pieces together and have the both center lines going Horizontal( long ways ) . now apply your adhesive in the 4 corners ONLY as shown in photo. Make sure your 2 pieces are butted next to each other with out any gaps .

#5 Ok now take your 2 remaining pieces and lay them on top of your project you did in step 4 BUT have your remaining 2 pieces the center lines going vertical ( up and down ) make sure all pieces are lined up and are ONLY attached by the 4 corners with adhesive as shown in photo.Once you finished thats it .. NOW what? the never ending card begins

#6 always start with your never ending card with the front center lines going vertical ( up and down ) now open the center panels to each side as shown in photo with panels going to back and panels going to side ( the back panels should go all the way to backside leaving those 2 panels you opened on the sides )..and SCORE the folds very good.. These next steps remember to score all panels you open this makes it much easier to glide through the never ending card . Because as 1st its a little stiff..

#7 Now take the center of your card and open to top and bottom as shown in the photo . Making sure your scoring all along the fold lines when you open each section

#8 Ok this is what you card should look like now, like a cross some what and you can see by the center this will be the next panels that are opened .. So opening your center panels to each side ( like your opening a book ) This will take you to the next frame of the never ending card ... you still with me .. We are almost done

#9 This is what it looks like when opening step 8.. Keep going your doing great!!

# 10 this is the last frame of your never ending card before you open the center panels again and you will be back at the beginning score all your panels folds .. this is very important to the never ending card . ok so open the center flaps one going up and one going down ..( flip the panel all the way to backside This is going to reveal the front of your card in step 11 below ) .

#11 Congrats you made it back to the beginning .. You made your never ending card YAHOO! Now I usually always stamp my never ending card when it has been all put together, and scored .. This way it helps me to now where to stamp my images in each frame of the never ending card .. BUT remember there are overlaying panels so when you stamp , go to the next frame to see what all will stay so you don't have images somewhere floating out of the blue .. Ok next I have all the finished photos of my stamped never ending card on my web shots gallery which you can view HERE For my never ending card I used the retired set PERFECT PARTY in of course the purple family of ink colors ( orchild opulence , lovely lilac ) cant wait to see all of your never ending cards .. so fun to make and especially fun to give . your finished card measures 6x6 so you can mail these in SU! large sq envelopes that measure 6.5 X 6.5

Mile Stone in History yesterday..

I am sure you all have seen and heard we hit the big 300 million person born in USA yesterday Wowzie .. appartently the last record of 200 million was back in 1967 ( the year I was born ) so I had a big part of that record that year ..

well for such a Doozie of a record I thought I would post a doozie of a card this morning and instead of

re-inventing the wheel ( so to speak ) I thought I would just post Michelle's Blog for you all to get the directions for this AWESOME card... Michelles directions are Great and easy to follow .. ( Thanks so Much Michelle ) This card uses 2 pieces of cardstock and does have a few steps BUT its alot of fun so Much fun that I have uploaded all the

ones I have made so far .. remember back a few days ago when I told you about making 6 of these awesome cards as thank yous for Daughters car wash fundrasier well here they all in all their glory ( Purple and Gold .. Yes purple is my fav color BUT these are daughters school colors also ..YAHOO!) ...The window in the card moves when you open it I tried to capture this movement in my still photos BUT this type of card is so much better IRL ( In real life ) double pleassure ( fun making & Fun opening it )

I also made this Christmas card using the same template and also a

Graduation card for My friend Lindas daughter Whitney ..( needless to say she wants this card )

the only thing different she wants is the moving part inside to say "Your Invited "

so what a relief it is for me that she doesnt need these invites until June of 2007 she will be needing 100 of these babies .. I hope you enjoy these cards in my post today and

have fun making your own Peek-a-boo card sometime this week ... Thanks for peeking in on my blog today ..
