Box with a Pow

Today I am on Timeless Twine and I am sharing something I made a while back but I don't think I ever officially posted it. Its a cute little box made with the Cricut Artiste cartridge. I used Cherry Red Twine for a pom pom on top and I think it turned out super cute. Sorry this post is a bit late. I had thought I had something ready and this is not my normal day so I got a bit mixed up!! This month has been all about gifting and packaging so this can be made pretty easily and it makes a really cute gift! 

Twine just adds that special pow to a gift! It doesn't cost much to dress up a gift with it either. Browse the store and see how many awesome colors you can find. Made in the USA also!

A Jar full of sweetness

Hi I am on Timeless Twine today showing a treat/packaging project. If your like me you are panicking just a bit right now. I mean did you think we would already be in the "zone" of Christmas already!? Now its like 3 weeks away and I am so not ready. I am a card maker but do you think I got any cards done to send to me friends? Thats a big fat NO 10-4 good buddy....I feel like such a bad bad friend, scrapper, crafter of stuff that just gets displayed or done for a project.

My new years resolution (really I never do the resolution thing but lets give it a whirl) will be to be more prepared for my friends and families birthdays and holidays, get more healthy (this one will be tough) and forget that my skin and body have broken through the levy... it couldn't hold it anymore and said your on your own sister. I feel like the conversation my skin had with my body kinda went like the voice of Scotty from Star Trek saying in that accent "Captain we don't have the power" and then its over.

Maybe it seems over dramatic or superficial to some but it has been a tough few years for me. Health wise I should have buzzards swarming me about right now I think. Menopause has taken a toll on me and definitely my sense of humor. My poor husband doesn't quite want to turn his back on me for not knowing if I am going to smash him in the head with something. Is this too much TMI for you all? But I have to find something to laugh about now.

Did you come here to look at my crafts? Well I guess I better get to the real issue for this post right!

I made these projects for Timeless Twine and it is with several of the products that are available in the store. See there is more than twine in BellaCreationz store. Check out the site and see how many fun things she has that you could make some really cute gifts for your peeps with.

This jar has the Doily & Cherry Red Twine. I used a cut file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons and then on the bottom layer I wrapped twine around it also to give it some pop of color through the cut outs. The mittens are also from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons. I thought the wreath was perfect to place in the center of the doily.

I then used a Gable box from BellaCreationz and make a large bow-ish thing out of Olive Green Twine for the front of my box. I placed a snowflake cutout on it and then used some red stickles just in the center to give it a bit of a pop. Honestly I would have used more stickles but those darn things get clogged up every couple seconds and I got tired of fighting with it! :) I love these gable boxes, truly I do. I put some pattern paper on the front just to dress it up a bit. I also used a red tag from the store and stamped in white ink on the front. I planned on embossing it but my embossing tool (only used a handful of times) burnt up! I had smoke coming out of it! 

Thanks for taking the time to visit me!
