MOJO Monday 115

Happy Monday morning to you all! Penguins
are just everywhere right now! Or so I keep
seeing them! Here is my mojo card made
with the SU! circle cutter. I used the dial
at 10 inch and 8 inch to create the outer
circles then used a 4 inch and the large oval
punch for the penguin himself. The beak
is made with the medium oval punch.

Cellophane Candies

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
It's Black friday, everyone out shopping yet?
Here is a quick craft I did with my girlies the
other day. It was really fun and cute to do.
You cannot tell by the photo but these are LARGE!
I purchased these at the Dollar Tree, they come 2
to a package and are two styofoam circles,
of course for a dollar! So you can buy
quite a few. The size is a 12 inch circle, we took
our everyday wrapping paper laying around the
house and cut out the circles and then used adhesive
to attach them. We then cut out the cellophane and
ribbon and tied bows! Easy as that! We are using
them for a variety of decor for Christmas. I do
alot of vintage decorating so they will come in handy.
You could always make a bunch and put them on your
tree too! soooo fun! xoxo

Count Your Blessings......

Happy Thanksgiving! I woke up this morning
singing in my head my favorite song Count your
Blessings.... I love this song, it is so upbeat and
a constant reminder to be Thanksful for all we
have in our lives. So much to be thankful for!
Blessings to you all as you go about your day
with your families and friends in hopes that today
brings you comfort and joy. Now, don't over eat!

Candy Shish kabobs!

Hi all! These candy kabobs are fun and easy to
make. First buy some bamboo skewers. I used
Reeses's mini peanut butter cups and skewered
7 of them onto the bamboo. I then added the cello
bags and tied it off with ribbon. I found this online,
the tree is made with the 1 3/8 punch , 1 3/4 punch
and 1 ' punch. Punch all three three times and then
skewer them onto the bamboo. I used stickles to
add the glitter and then punched out stars for the
top of the tree, xoxo

Penguin weekend!

These little Penguins are all over SCS
so we took a stab at them this weekend.
My Daughter and I got out the Big Shot
and cut out the top note die to make the
above card. The Penguin ornament below is
made with all circle punches.

To make this penguin take the 1 3/8
circle punch in black and 1 1/4 circle
punch for the white center. The arms
are made with the 5 petal flower punch.
The head is 1 1/4 in black and also a blue
one layered on the back for the ear muffs.
The earmuff cirlces are cut from a 3/4
punch. The face is white and cut from a
heart punch. The feet are made from the
curly label punch. So fun easy and cute!

Cotton Candy Snowman

Yes you read that right! Cotton Candy fills
this cute little pail. I happen to find the container
below at the Dollar Tree filled with white cotton candy
and thought how easy it would be to fill up one of these
pails I have with it and do a take on the plastic one.
I have tons of these pails to use so I may make quite a
few more to fill with baked goodies or candy treats for
Christmas. xoxo

Candy Tubes

Today's post are these candy tubes I found.
I took the tubes and made the owl and Clarisse
from Rudolph. Aren't they fun! There is a picture
below of how large they are as they are tall running
about 8 inches tall. I was also thinking that if you
cannot find the tubes locally that you can also
use a empty roll of TP. I know it sounds weird
but I did try it out and you can put them on there
as well you just have to close off the bottom of the roll.
The templates for the Owl and Clarisse are to the left
of my blog. I will be emailing out all purchases monday
morning as this weekend I have a scrapbooking weekend
away with a bunch of wonderful ladies! So I will email
your templates then. Thanks! xoxo
Also, you do need the top note die for this project.

Clarisse from Rudolph

Retro Owl

Here are the tubes quite long..... filled with goodies
of course!

Scarecrow Treat Bag

Good Morning Blurfers! Today's post
is a quick and easy treat bag made out of
a lunch sack. You need to do nothing to
the lunch sack except decorate it!
I used a black sharpie to draw the face on,
then took the white uniglo pen to color in his
eyes and mouth. The cheeks are made by
shading on some pink ink with a dauber.
His hair is made with raffia that I just tied
in the middle and attached with a glue dot.
These are cute little bags to use for many
upcoming fall/thanksgiving treats and such.
Have fun with them! xoxo

Give Thanks!

Pinch and a punch first of the month! Hello
November! Let the holiday rush begin! Ha!
I hope everyone had a fun Halloween, I know
we did! I have alot of Junior Mint candies
left over so I was trying to think of something clever
to do with them. I was thinking of Thanksgiving
and how it would be nice to have a mint after you
eat! Soooo.... I took the boxes and wrapped them
with the Autumn Meadows DSP from SU!. The size
of the paper will be 2 x 5 1/2. Adhere it in the back.
I then took the tag punch and stamped Give Thanks
on it, wrapped the twine around it and tied the bow!
Very easy gals! xoxo
