Teacher gifts and Tutorial

Good morning, Deann here, today I would like to share some teacher gifts I created for Christmas gifts using coffee sleeves.

I used the Gingerbread Family Shape Set and the Winter Shape Set on my project then I added a coco pouch, candy cane, paper straw and will add a gift card to it later.

 This is what they look like all packaged up!

If you want to see how they were made, I will have a photo tutorial below so you can make your own altered coffee sleeves, enjoy!
Thank you,

Coffee Sleeve Tutorial

Step 1- Get a coffee sleeve from your favorite Coffee Shop!

 Step 2- Open sleeve up, paint or stain the edges and where the folds are.

Step 3A- I cut a second sleeve apart to make a template,
3B- Cut a small amount off of the pieces on all sides, this will give an bordered edge on your sleeve.

Step4- Glue the paper to the sleeve and seal closed. All done!
Time for the decorating.

I used one of the Gingerbread men and inked it up and then edged it with gesso to look like frosting.

I added some buttons to the finished product, and volia! 
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial, thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Trees!

Good morning, I have a few trees to share with yall :) 
 First up- A flower Tree that I made for Craftsupplies1. 
 Cut the wire on the flowers to about 1 1/2 inches long, this is what i used to adhere the flowers to the cone with. I did add a little glue to the wires. 
 I added some of Gina's chipboard snowflakes.
Love the mask and butterfly for the topper!
Up next, My Mum made a few Ribbon Trees!

She found the idea on Pinterest, Lots of tutorials!
Thanks for looking

Mitten Banner

Good morning, Deann here with a dual project with Kimmy!
We both made the Mitten Micro Mini Album. We decided to turn the mini into banners.
I used the My Minds Eye Holly Jolly 6x6 paper pad to cover the mittens.
 I used Heidi's Stars Shape Set on some of the cuffs.
 I also used the Snowflakes Shape Set.
I found really cute jingle bells at the Dollar Tree, they look so cute!

Yard Work

Good morning, Deann here with a Fall yard seen,
I used the Standing Dome as the base for my Project. I used a paper that has Sunflowers for the Dome. The paper was the starting point for my project.
 I used a lot of dried corn husk to fill all of the open spaces.
Next I added pieces from the Fall Shape Set. 
I used a tree from the Winter Shape Set, I cut the bottom half or the tree off and glued it behind the fence. It looks a bush now.
I really like how the rake and tub look behind the fence.
Thanks for checking out my project, it was soooooo fun to make!
