Treat Yo Self (gift box)

Things are so wild around here this week – more than usual. The upside is, I’m cleaning out my files and realized I never posted this project that I created and adore. How could I?! Well now I am here to share – hope you enjoy.

With a glittered die cut at the center, I added buttons, glitter, and random do-dads to create the ultimate gift box. My base is just one of those cheap little alterable paper boxes you can pick up at any craft store. You guys – these are so much fun to make.

This die from Ellen Hutson (affiliate link) is just the best, and since ‘treating myself’ to it last month I can’t stop using it!

I’ve got spooky box coming next week, and you can also find me creating some Christmas versions next month – including a very merry video. So stay tuned – oh, and treat yo self to this die. Seriously a fun one!

don’t know the reference “Treat Yo Self?” well then you’ve not watched Parks & Rec (How could you not?!! one of the best shows out there…) so here’s a link to a YT that has the good snippets that should explain…

Two new projects up today at ACMoore

We don’t have ACMoore here – which is a shame! The few times I’ve visited I really do enjoy that craft store! If you’re lucky enough to have one near you – they have a display full of my favorite buttons! Yep, Buttons Galore & More buttons can be found there including some of my favorites like this set.

Why do I bring up a store I don’t have here in California? Because I’ve got two new projects up on their website! The card you see above can be found here (with how-to). There is also a back to school clipboard. You can find that here.

Stay tuned – I’ll be having more button-tastic projects coming soon!

Guest Post: Buttons Galore blog

For a LONG time (12 years? more?!) I’ve loved Buttons Galore buttons! They have fantastic value packs, big bags ‘o fun, and well – I recommend them whole heartedly! So I was excited when they asked me if I’d be interested in doing a guest post!
