Bananas For You

Happy New Year!!!

I hope you had a safe celebration last night and prayers and hopes for a bright 2018!

We have grandchildren and great grandchildren that we send goodies to for Valentines Day and I've been playing with our Steel Rule Milk Carton die to make a goody holder.  Here's one I played with this week....

I purchased this die during our 12 Days of Deals and watched a video about it and started playing with an idea.   I started with a sheet of our Limeade Splash card stock and carefully scored ALL lines (we were told in the video to not forget the diagonal lines).  I determined where I wanted to die cut the little heart (using our Heart-Felt die set) and also die cut a heart out of a piece of our new Spring Filled Prints (I'll get the link added when I get home from work at noon). I carefully figured out the placement of the plaid piece and trimmed to fit.  I added a piece of our Clear View Sheet to the print piece THEN I assembled the carton. I stapled the top with our Silver staples and used the ribbon from the candy bag. I added the little Mini Wooden Clothespin for fun.

I purchased some banana shaped candies for this idea and I put them in a little baggie  and put it in the carton through the bottom. No need to tape shut for such a light item.

I used a retired set called Punny Stuff as I love this for little kids.  I added a store purchased paper straw for effect.

This was a hoot to make and I love how it came out!

Today is the start of our Launch Party for our Bloom This Way Mini!  I'll make a post both here and on my Stampin Hot With Carol FB page as soon as I get home from work.  And don't forget to check out this month's sale!!  Head over to my FSJ Specials page for the info! Then head over to my FSJ website and stock up on your organizational items today!
