Pomegranates & Artichokes

Sound like a delicious salad combo?

Perhaps, but I'm referring to the scrumptious colors of cardstock and designer papers from SU!  tee hee

The first photo montage displays three fun gifts I'm giving this year.

One is an empty Pringles can filled with KitKat candy bars wrapped and tied with In-Color ribbons.  

Then there are two wrapped KitKats displayed in a cello bag with a topper.  I think the paper looked as elegant as my dear friend Jeanne... so that is for her!  

Then that adorable little matchbox dresser - Barbie sized.  Five empty boxes are stacked together, wrapped with paper, drawers lined, and brads added for draw pulls!

It is, after all, the little things in life!

Dash Away ALL!

Don't you just LOVE the Dashing designer paper too?

Starbucks Mocha bottles are transformed into a fun gift-giving idea. How many things can you think of to put inside the bottles? 

Here is a starting point: erasers & thumb tacks, kisses & malt balls, cocoa powder & marshmallows

Boxes are easily made from 6x6 squares of paper... just score a tic-tac-toe, fold, staple, and embellish (of course)!

Half inch strips of paper curled around a pencil turn glass ornaments into an eye full of delight!

Recipe: Dashing paper, scallop punch, rhinestone brads, Love & Joy, real red, old olive
