Back to the Play Ground!
Just thought I would start playing with paper again. It feels so good to do it, too. It isn’t like I got out of the mood, just couldn’t get in the swing. Lots of things get in the way of fun, and I guess I became overwhelmed. Back to playing in the craft room, and doing swaps on SCS, and loving everything I’m doing.
I made candy bar holders for Christmas. Just a couple of them. I’m thinking my little snowman came from Whipper Snapper. I could be wrong, but I believe that is it. It is all SU paper. The pink holder was for a friend, and the Barney purple one for one of my sisters. I taped gift cards to the candy bars. When they pulled on the string to bring up the candy bar, they also saw the gift card. The snowmen are colored with watercolor pencils, and I used Gamsol to blend, as well as embossed them over with clear embossing powder. I made another one of these for my DH’s aunt, but it said Happy New Year! The candy bar is large. It is the 4.4 oz Hershey’s.
Well, I’m off to play in the craft room. Working on a recipe swap on SCS for one dish meals. I’ll post it in a few days. I have a dip recipe card that I will be posting tomorrow or Wednesday. Enjoy your evening, and Happy Scraping!
