  • Hello Friends!
    I apologize for my absence but we had our last mini vacation before school starts and I have been busy getting back to my workout routine etc... I did catch up a bit visiting some of you and I will visit more of you later today.  Thank you for your continued support and all the lovely comments!!!

    Today is challenge #58 for Decorate to Celebrate and we are asking you to create a back to School project but no cards.  I created a mini box to hold those paper clips that always seem to be everywhere. I added a cute 3D apple created with the Stampin' Up! heart punch, more details below.  I can't wait to see what you create!!

    For the apple I punched 18 hearts and cut of the bottom tip and adhered the hearts back to back after folding them in half.  I also sponged the apple with Real Red and Old Olive.

    I used the Matchbox which is retired but one of my favorites since it's super easy to put together.  I wish I would of had some red paper clips which would of been perfect but of course I had some PINK ones LOL!!  You can check out a card I made with this 3D apple HERE
