Welcome to the Scrap Tiffany Blog Hop

Hi Ladies! (and Gents!)

Welcome to my blog. We were challenged to create projects on Celebrations! So I hope I can be a little bit inspiring to you today! If I'm the first blog you've hit, Awesome! When you are done looking at my creations, be sure to head HERE to see some more wonderful projects!!! Without further ado.... here's what I have today, on this wonderful Olympic Saturday!
My first project is some napkin holders. I love making napkin holders. It's a keepsake for whoever is there, and they can be personalized for the season! The paper flowers were easy to create. I cut out circles in various sizes using my leftover papers. I keep them in a bowl. When I am watching tv, or whenever I need one or two, I just throw one together. If you don't know how... you make 4 or 5 (or more) circles in various sizes, small to bigger. Use different but coordinating papers. I crinkle the paper up around the edges to make it appear flower like. I layer the circles, and attach with a brad. How simple is that?














Project 2
I decided to create a few cards. The first is a Valentines Card, and the 2nd is a Anniversary card. I have a basket that I keep my completed cards in. That way, when I'm in the mood to create a card, I do, and I have them when I need them. Plus, the basket is fun for people to go through.












Project 3
Here, I created a little goodie holder. So simple to make. Take a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock, and cut it end to end. Then with the tip facing away from you, take the right corner, and tightly on the bottom, fold it in towards the top tip, until they are even. Take the left side, and fold it over so that it creates a cone shape, and you have it. I embellished it by using a punch along two of the three sides, and then adding embellishments for effect. I finished it off with ribbon in the top to hang it with. It still didn't look finished, so I took a piece of pattern paper, and sliced several thin strips. I ran the strips (folded) through a crinkler... and voila... that finished touch. You can add candy to this, or put strips of flowers into it... whatever your imaginations tells you! Have fun!




















Project 4 The Heart Shaped Keepsake Box

I love creating keepsake boxes.. out of anything. They just make it so much more fun to keep things in. This is an old box of chocolates. It's a double layer heart, so extra fun to create with. I embellished with flowers, leaves, ribbon, lace... bling.. you name it. The sky's the limit with these things.

























Project 5 - The Cupcake Tutorial


Start with your strip of 12 x 1 1/2 " strip and pleat it







Add a 1 inch strip long enough to go around your pleat





Put them together like this. (It should resemble the cup look of a cupcake





Get a styrofoam ball and slice it in half.







Cut circles out of sparkly paper. (Or any paper, and sparkle it yourself later.) They should be small.. about the size of a dime. The paper should be stiffer.. as c/s






Take straight pins, and fix the circles onto the styrofoam 1/2 circle.







Embellish however you like.. and that's all there is to it. You have fun cupcakes. Just don't try and eat them! :)
















Enjoy the rest of your blog hop!!! The next stop on this hop is Cindy's!
