Boxes made with Envelope Punch Board

 This box is made with 12x12" designer paper. I used some retired dsp with a piece that is a bit heavier than normal. It is pretty good size and could hold a nice gift. For this you punch and score at 4" from each edge on all 4 sides. To learn more, contact me for a class or come to club this Sat 11/16.

 This next box holds 4-6 cards with envelopes. I am going to offer a class to make a box with 4 cards to give as a gift or to keep for yourself. Watch for more info SOON.

Envelope punch board, file folder card and envelope

File folder cards are all the rage now, so I had to try my hand at one. We will be making one at club this Sat 11/16. Plan to attend or contact me for more details. Watch for more ideas of how to use this fun NEW tool.  
This first picture is with the card open to show the inside.
                                  This next picture shows the envelope from the back with the card front
   Another picture of the card front with the envelope. I used the same designer paper for the
envelope as I did for the inside of the card and they blend together.

Cascading card

This is the card we made for club in October. It is much easier than it appears. The card base is cut at 7 1/2 x 8 1/2". Then mark each side at 2 1/2", one side from the top and the other from the bottom. Then cut diagonally between the marked sides. You will have 2 pieces 8 1/2" in length that are 5" high at one end and 2 1/2" high at the other end. Score both pieces at 2 1/8, 4 1/4, and 6 3/8" then fold. Cut the 2 outer folds up from bottom halfway on one piece and down from top halfway on the other. The pieces will slide together ready to be decorated anyway you wish. Contact me for more info if needed.

Veteran's Week at Branson

We are in Branson for Veteran's Week. Week you say, I thought it was Veteran's Day? Well in Branson they celebrate all week!

We first spent 2 days in Mountain Home, Ar visiting with friends we met down here 3 years ago.  They traveled up to Branson with us and we have done many things together.

We arrived Thur to attend a mini Vietnam Veterans reunion, but it was so crowded that we had no place to sit or see so we didn't stay very long. Fri was a salute to veterans by WalMart and the Branson veterans task force. It was 3 hrs of entertainment and tribute to veterans including a wedding! Then a free meal for everyone. We spent several hours Sat visiting vendor village, veterans day room, and the lunch room with a free meal for the vets. Then we went to the Titanic exhibit where Chris got in free and I got a veterans family discount. We had never been and it was a fascinating 2 1/2 hrs of history. Today we went to our church home away from home, Calvary Baptist Church right here in the heart of Branson. Tomorrow is a huge parade, then free lunch at Applebee's and supper at Golden Corral for the veterans.
