Wedding Favors

 Hello there! Its been awhile...I've been busy making wedding favors!! My sisters wedding is in October. We made 100 of these "Seed Boxes" :) we only have to stuff the seeds and then we are done.

This is a modified version of the Sweetheart box found at SVGcuts the valentines box was modified to have a cover to look more like a book, but function like a box!

 I love boxes so much and SVGcuts has amazing kits and boxes available, (plus excellent customer service. :)

I made the box the standard size as pictured in Mary's PDF file (one is provided for every kit you buy!)
I modified the box by adding a square in Ecal and Welding it together to the box. this created the book cover look. then I added a celtic design and a square to the front and some leaves to the box front.

May you find joy in crafting!!

Covered Wagon

I made this covered wagon for my dad for Father's Day. Using a variety of SVGcut's files. 

I made this out of cereal boxes and kraft paper. Then I inked it using a black ink and Tea colored ink pads :) 

 The mini lantern is from Crisp days of fall.
 Bushel baskets in the back of the wagon are from Caramel Apple Pie Kit.

The cover is made from fabric. The paper look just didn't look so well. Layer the paper and cereal boxes to make the wood look. I got a tip from Debra to use a pick and scratch the paper before stamping, this creates a more realistic wood look. :) check out her blog for a complete tutorial. (Debra's Blog)
