Time to Play

I am so glad to be back with you today. My husband and I went to Amish country on Monday and the weather was beautiful. Unfortunately, we both forgot to take our cameras. We did a little shopping and had lunch before starting home. On Tuesday, we went to dinner at our favorite A & W root beer stand, then stopped and looked around at a bookstore on the way home. That evening a friend of my husband's who married and moved to France stopped by. He was in the states on business and wanted to spend some time with us before heading back to France. He brought his Ipad and showed us some gorgeous photos of the Black Forest in Germany, Austria and France. Hadn't seen him in quite a few years, so it was great catching up.

Today I had lots of time to play in my craft room. One of the projects I have been working on is "Gum Package Covers." After the photo you will find the directions for making these cute covers.


Cut designer paper into a 3" by 6 1/2" strip. Score along 6" side at 1 3/4, 2 1/4, 4 3/4 and 5 1/4.

Fold all score lines. Place sticky tape on short end, wrap around gum pack and seal to long piece. Decorate as you wish.

I used K & Co Life's Occasion designer paper to make cover, then layered 1 1/4" circle onto a 1 1/2" scalloped circle punched from SU papers. (Sentiments were printed from my computer, then punched with SU punches.)

I used foam dots to place circles on covers. The birds and butterflies are from K & Co.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Don't forget you have until Sunday 8pm to join in on the sisterhood challenge. 

Until next time,
