Wishing a warm Christmas

Hi ladies,

Here in Texas started to get a bit cold already, we are around 46 degrees. 

The project that I bring this time is very useful for giving away some tea candles and it looks amazing as a little present. 

To make this candle holder you will need:

One piece of cardstock of 9" x 12". 

Yo will make score lines at the short side at 3/4" and 8 1/4"

Then we will make score lines at the long side at 1/2"; 1 1/4"; 2 3/4"; 3 1/2 and 8 1/2".

Now that we have the main scores and shape, we will proceed to make some notches in the left side of the box card. We will eliminate the first piece and then make notches between all the scored lines and proceed to eliminate the rest.

Now we can open a little window in the central panel of what will be our box. I took the following measurements: from left and right at the center panel 1/4" of each side and from top and bottom 1/2". 

After this is done I added some acetate in the window so you can still see through. I also glue the box together.

Then is just about putting some finishing touches, I cutted the flip to make a pocket and have a tag inside, tgen decirated with Cindy lou dots and Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter cardstock used the Belgian Chocolate boy rub-on and add of course the tea candles.

I hope you enjoyed today's project and come back tomorrow for more inspirational ideas from our talented design group. You can also join our monthly challenge of a chance to win a nice price!

See you the next time!

All I want for Christmas

Hello crafty friends, Giorgia here.
Are you already in Christmas mood? I am!
So here I am sharing a layout from last Christmas Eve: I love taking funny pictures with photo props and my husband must do them with me! Well, he doesn’t like this so much, but he couldn’t refuse ritual pictures with Santa’s hat…

The Robin's Nest has tons of great Christmas products and you can also combine them with non themed stuff to create great projects:

This is how I made my layout and some close up.

As background for this layout I used “Wrap” glitter cardstock. I vertically hand throw “Cindy Lou Presents” cardstock and adhered it this way:

For layering my picture I cut some rectangles from “Red Snowflake” cardstock and “Cindy Lou Dot” glitter cardstock and I glued them as shown. Then I adhered all down using foam tape to create dimension: 

I added a straw under my picture:

I added another straw under the 3D stickers I used as title: 

I added some 3D themed stickers:

Finally I added dew drops: I LOVE dew drops, they always add an extra touch to each project! You can choose from so many colors and they also come in teardrops and diamond shapes, take a look!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you liked my project.
Remember to take a look at the shop to see all the amazing Robin's Nest products and take also a look to our monthly challenge: you could win an awesome package of yummy RN products!

Thanksgiving Box

Preparing for Thanksgiving 
and visitors is always fun for me.
I love to be with family during this time.
Robin posting today.

This year I decided to make a box.
My Thanksgiving box is for our thoughts on
our blessings.  Each family member will
add to this either with a picture colored by little hands
or their personal take on blessings in their life.

As I was working with this box,
by the way, it is a hamburger box, When I purchase
hamburgers they come in a box, and I have been
saving boxes for a while with the plan to do something fun.
So, as I was working on this box, I decided
to bring to it a lot of collectibles that I have been saving
for many years and never use.
So as I was working on the box, I felt that the Saffron Sunrise line
would be great for Thanksgiving colors and style.

I started with Saffron Sunrise cardstock.
The yellows and deep grays are the colors I was wanting
for background colors.
So I covered the box in these papers.
I just used elmers glue to attach the papers to the box.

Saffron Diamond Cardstock  Saffron Sunrise Cardstock

Then after the papers are glued to the box,
I used dimensional paint, and painted these letters
with a plastic template.

This was so fun and easy to do, and a new
technique for me in my scrappy room.

I then started adding papers, and items.
On this box I used quite a few cut chipboard from
Gina's Designs.
Love her work!

My additions to the front of the box came from many different eras in
my life.  A piece of fabric, a pumpkin cut from an old
kitchen towel, flowers I sprayed from purple to rust,
a leather N, a feather given to me from my mother in law
at least 30 years ago, acorns from the trees in my backyard.

But most important what is on here from The Robin's Nest?

Autumn Leaves Fall Rub-on Maple Leaves Paper Clips

Turkey Canvas Turkey Glitter Cardstock  Sunkissed Tear Drops

Pumpkin Glitter Chipboard  Rusty Rose Cards Birch Tree Paper Straws

Saffron Sunrise cardstock, And dew drops and tear drops!!

I just discovered a few minutes ago that 8.5x11 paper fits inside the box!!!!

YeahHHH !!!!!

I can't wait for Thanksgiving week, when we are gathered together
with our son and his family, we will spend an evening writing our blessings
and things we are thankful for.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

And as they say in Georgia,
May your life be Blessed!
