Revamped Flower Tins

Here are the some flower tins from store bought flowers.
I just added some flowers and embellishments,
and we have an easy makeover.

Could be used as a keepsake box or shadow box.
These are also going to the school for Santa's Workshop.

Cricut Box Makeover

At Christmas time I make inexpensive items for the school  to sell
at there Santa's Workshop. Years ago I ran this program and loved it.
Even though we moved away I still participate.
I also really like making stuff for the little ones to buy for their families.

 I don't store my Cricut cartridges in the boxes that they came in.
But I did save them. This what alot of them have become.

They don't cost a thing and they are pretty sturdy boxes.
(sure hate the new plastic ones)

So the School got a bunch of these this year!

Halloween Mini

Here is a Mini I made from Large Manila Envelopes.
This size is about 6 1/2" X 7". The paper line was DCWV.

Each tag holds a full size picture.

A few tags for the inside pockets.

Added some extra mats to some pages.

The decorations are store bought Chip board pieces.
I think they were K & Co. from last year.

Used a couple of Martha Stewart punches.

Glimmer mist on some of the tags.

Used some ribbon and sequin things I have had forever.

A few brads here and there.

This was really quick and easy Mini to make.

Tutorial on minibook page

Start out with a 12 X 12 Piece of card stock.
Score on one side @ 6 1/2 " Turn & score @ 4 1/4 & 8 1/2

Cut on the 6 1/2 " line down to the 4 1/2" Score mark
on both sides(top & bottom). Cut out a 2" X 6 1/2" piece of paper on one side
(top left)
& 2" X 5 1/2" on the other side( bottom right) 
Fold left side flaps down to the middle, glue it down so
it makes a pocket.

Punch out and finger pull slot, I used a 1 1/2" hole punch
This left side will be the binding side of your  pages.

Fold the right side of your paper to the back.

Flip the page over it should look like this.

Fold the top page down.

Open that page you have the little 1 1/2" flap fold.

Fold this flap up and glue down the side edges
so it forms a pocket.

close the page and this is the back side of your page.

This is what the front of each page should look like.
Binding will be on the left side of each page
I bound my pages with the cinch.
I had seen this on you Tube made with an 8 1/2" X 11"
piece of card stock. But I wanted my pages larger so
I adapted the measurements to fit a 12 X 12 piece of paper.
