We had another busy weekend, and I had 2 classes this weekend on top of the family stuff. I am thrilled with the results of the weekend…….lots of fun, lots of football, and lots of family bonding. We are re-doing our fireplace (as if our lives didn’t have enough excitement) and making a brick hearth. The brick will go up the wall almost to the ceiling and there will be a brick mantle/shelf/archway type of thing going on. I am so excited, as I have wanted this for 4 years!!! I strongly disliked the style that was there before. I am so excited because Charles has made some progress on it this weekend — although the dust created has been a little much for me! I am trying to not complain, though, and keep the end result in mind!!!
This is one of the projects from my workshop on Saturday. My long-time friend and customer, Jo, had a fantastic workshop with several of her friends from work and some family members, too. After I demonstrator a couple of projects, we did 2 Make and Take projects. This was our 3-D project using Falling Leaves.
You might also remember this “original” candy holder from many months ago………..this is where I got this idea. I just transformed it into a “fall theme”.
To make this holder:
1) Start with cardstock measuring 3 1/2″ x 7 3/4″
2) Score at 1/2″, 3 3/4″, and 4″ on the long side
3) Stamp as desired. If you want the words to really show up, I recommend stamping them first and then stamp the leaves. (I used leaves from Falling Leaves and the colors Old Olive, Really Rust, Ruby Red, and More Mustard)
4) Punch a window using the Word Window Punch. Insert the paper from the end that has the 1/2″ score. Insert into punch until paper can’t go in any more. Punch one time for a small candy bar, or punch a longer window opening if desired.
5) Use a small amount of adhesive at the top (where the 1/2″ scoring is located) to hold the treat holder closed.
6) Punch 2 small openings at the top for tying ribbon.
7) Insert candy and enjoy!
