I received these items from my Demonstrator Get Together last month and I thought they were so inventive! Using a Embossing folder is an easy way to jazz up any project! And the great thing is…they're only $7.95! In honor of Halloween, here is the Spider Web Embossing folder that is featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog.
What a cute idea to use on a party napkin! It'll make a splash!
And on vellum…it really makes it pop!

When Jennifer moved away for college I made her a quilt and some pillows for her bed. I always hoped that having a warm, handmade quilt would remind her of me and of being home. My college aged daughter, Annalisa, moved out this week and I wanted to carry on the tradition. I used the new Tasteful Trim Bigz Die that is featured in the Holiday Mini for the rick rack on the pillow. It was SO EASY! And I think it turned out really cute.

We've had so many requests for instructions on the sanitizer covers. I hope these will be clear…
First, cut a piece of cardstock to 2 x 9 1/2 inches, Score the cardstock at 3 1/4, 4 1/4, 7 1/2, and 8 1/2. This will be the main part of the box.
Cut another piece of cardstock to 5 x 1 1/2 inches. Score this piece at 1/2, 1 1/2, 3 1/2, and 4 1/2 inches one way and 1/4 and 1 1/4 inches the other way. Cut off the four corner pieces so that the sections measure 1 1/2 inches, 2 inches, and 1 1/2 inches.
Punch out an oval using Stampin' Up!'s 1 3/4" x 7/8" Oval Punch.
Attach the smaller piece to the larger piece of cardstock using Sticky Strip.Put your Sticky Strip on the 1/4 inch scored tab.
Put Sticky Strip on the rest of the project as shown.
Assemble as shown.
This project was originally made by Renee Coburn. She found the hand sanitizers at Bath and Body Works. I hope that helps! As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

I love treats. Especially smartly-packaged treats. Here are some cute ideas using Stampin' Up! products.
To make the basic triangle shaped box, cut a piece of cardstock to 8 1/2 x 4 inches. Score the cardstock longways at 4 1/4 inches. On each short end find your half way point (2 inches) and mark it with a pencil. Score from the pencil mark to the outside of the 4 1/4 inch score line in a diagonal line. Repeat 3 times. Fold into a box and let your creative juices flow! Let me know if you have any questions!
