Go Team USA

I'm not a sports fan....until the Olympics come around.  We love the events and seeing the beauty of the host countries.  Here's a photo from our trip to St. Petersburg a few years ago.

If you have an Olympics party you can make little favors using our G67USA stamp!

Happy 16 days of viewing.

Easy Folded Paper Basket

Lawrenceville, GA was our destination this past weekend for our first 2014 convention.  We were blessed that the earlier bad weather was gone and allowed for all the vendors and shoppers to attend.  Sunday it was 75 degrees while we were packing up.  However, things changed quickly and Monday morning our drive thru Kentucky looked like this.

The roads were clear in Illinois and the rest of the way to Kansas.  We got home just in time for a 10" snowfall on Tuesday.  Ohh well, I have lots of stamps to make and here is the promised instructions for the little folded paper basket we had at the show this past weekend.

This is the easiest little thing to make.  I used a 6" x 6" piece of cardstock and scored on the black lines as shown the template below. (For some reason the photo isn't so great, click on it for a better view).  Punch a hole in each corner, string in your ribbon and tie.

This can be enlarged to 9" x 9" or 12" x 12" if you prefer.

I added our H114 Bunny Front to which I added some pink glitter and a pom pom.  Super easy and cute!

So if you're snowed in, too, make something cute.
