Bunny Table Favor with Rinea Foil

Create a cute little Bunny Treat Box to adorn your table this Easter.

To make the Bunny Table Favor…

I used Rinea Foiled Paper, a paper lined with colorful vibrant metal foil on both sides.

This German inspired paper holds its shape, looks like foil and works like paper. 

The Bunny Table Favor is a fun project to make even the littlest guest feel special.

Directions:

  • To add adhesive to the back of the Rinea Foiled Paper lay the paper onto the  Xyron Creative Station* crank the handle to run the paper through the machine.  As it moves through the Xyron Creative Station it adds adhesive to the back side of the paper.  Easy to use and it doesn’t need electricity.

  • Apply Rinea Foiled Paper onto the front and back of pre-cut chipboard pieces.
  • Place the double sided foiled chipboard pieces onto the (discontinued) Easter Elements Die and run through the Sizzix Big Shot Die Cut Machine* to cut out the Bunny Shapes.
  • FYI…the Sizzix Cottontail Die is very similar to the bunny I used.

  • Cut two double-sided blush foiled bunny shapes.
  • Cut two 2 ½” x 1 ½” and two 1 ½” x 1 ½” pieces of double-sided silver foiled chipboard.
  • Cut a 2 ½” x 3 ½” piece of double-sided pastel green foiled chipboard.
  • To cover up the brown core of the chipboard, use the DecoColor Premium Silver Leaf Pen* to go around the edge of each piece of cut chipboard.

  • I used Beacon 3 in 1 Glue* to glue the four silver sides of the box onto the pastel green base.
  • Glue the pink foiled bunnies to both sides of the box.

  • Cut a 2″ x 2 ½” piece of pastel green foil.  Tightly roll foil using a bamboo skewer, add a little glue along the edge of the roll to keep roll from unraveling.
  • Cut small cuts into the top of the foil to create fringe.
  • Create two and glue to the front and back of the box.

  • Punch a couple small pastel purple daisies, curl and form into a petite flower.
  • Glue flower to the front of the box.
  • Cut several thin 6″ strips of pastel green foil.  Wrap foil paper around the bamboo skewer to form little spirals.
  • Use spirals as the filler inside the treat box.  (The foil paper holds its shape well.)

Fill Bunny Table Favor with candy treats and add to your Easter Table.

A Plate Full of Thanks

This month I started working with a company called Tape Technologies, the maker of

Styletch Vinyl, as their New Design Team Coordinator.

Being that it’s November…

I decided my first project should be something that I could use for Thanksgiving.

I perused my new collection of 12″ x 12″ adhesive vinyl and decided on the Sunflower

Transparent Glitter Vinyl sheet.  (fyi…Styletech has a great selection of vinyl to work with.)

You can find a 10 assorted pack of 12×12 Glitter Self Adhesive Vinyl Sheets* on Amazon.

Some of you may gasp…

when I tell you that I still don’t have one of those fancy electronic die cutting machines.

(although it may be on this year’s Christmas list)

To begin this simple project…  I cut the word “Thanks” using a thin steel die and my

Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cutting/Embossing Machine*.  I cut out 8 for my large plate and

one for my small plate.  Because I only wanted the “thanks” around the edge of the plate

I cut the flourish off the bottom of the “k”.

After figuring out my plate placement, I placed my die-cut “thanks” onto a flat surface and

picked up the die-cut with my Vinyl Transfer Tape*.

Once on the transfer paper I peeled back the protective layer and secured it in place on my

plate.  I burnished the transferred die and removed the transfer paper.

Because I couldn’t help myself I added another die cut “Thanks” with the flourish in tack onto

a cute little thrift store find.

FYI…While I would not place the plates in the dishwasher, I did try to see how it would hold up to hand-washing.   It did fine.

Snowman Banner with Kunin Felt

Is it too early for a Snowman Banner?

I admit it’s a little early, but when I found this adorable Sizzix Snowman Die by Tim Holtz*

I really wanted to use it in this month’s Designer Craft Connection Blog Hop with Kunin Felt.

Seriously though…Who doesn’t love a snowman?

To see what the other designers made using their Kunin Felt make sure to click on the

Blog Hop link at the bottom of this post.

Here’s what I used to make my Snowman Banner.                           (*affiliate link)

      • I made a simple banner pattern out of white cardstock.
      • I traced 2 banners onto the felt.

I die-cut the felt into snowman pieces using the Sizzix Snowman Die* and my Sizzix Big Shot Machine*.

      • Glue or Sew the felt shapes onto the banner.
      • Sew both pieces of the banner together leaving a small pocket on the top to insert a bamboo skewer or small wood rod for hanging.
      • Add pom pom trim to the top of the banner.
      • Iron on embroidered letters to spell “let it snow”

Did you know???

Kunin Felt recycles billions of water bottles every year that would otherwise be in the landfills and makes them into a product which becomes felt. 12 bottles equals 1 lb. of fabric.

DIY…Christmas Chalkboard

DIY…Christmas Chalkboard

Christmas in July…

Last week it was so hot that when I went out at 9:00 in the evening to water my flowers it

was hard to breath.  It was so hot that our unheated pool felt like bath water.

Summer’s in full swing and vacation (for me) is fast approaching.

And with all the things I could or should be doing, I felt like making a Christmas Chalkboard.

It’s not too early?  Is it?

The Christmas Chalkboard is really easy to make…

and would be a wonderful gift for those of you thinking ahead.

And if you’d like…you could make it a two sided chalkboard and really get creative.

       

Here’s how I made the Christmas Chalkboard…  

Enabler Alert!

Just in case you didn’t know.  Sizzix is having a Christmas in July Sale.  (#AD)
