Don't you just love it when you can take something that would normally be thrown away and make it into something useful, even beautiful! My daughter's current beverage of choice is Strawberry NesQuik (you mix it with milk). Well, it comes in this fantastic plastic container. I just can't bear to throw them away and knew there must be something I can do with them. So when the Late Night Stampers Convention Design Team came up with this week's challenge project, I knew exactly what I needed to do. I took this little plastic container and turned it into a box to store gift tags. What do you think? Would this make a perfect gift or Hostess incentive or ... well, I may just have to keep it myself!
The challenge this week is to make a 3-D or Gift item using the colors Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive (plus unlimited other colors) and at least 1 metal embellishment. For this altered box and tags, I used the sets Best Wishes and More and Best Yet (Level 1 Hostess set). I also used Washington Apple, Maine Blueberry and Green Tea Designer Series Papers. The little envelopes were cut with the Big Shot and the Scallop Envelope Die. It's a pretty simple project to make and lots of fun. So go ahead, rise to the challenge and see what you can come up with this week! You may just turn trash into treasure!
Today is THE LAST DAY for my Online Ordering Special! The first 5 people to place a minimum $50 order Online through my website (see the link on the side bar) will receive a FREE retired Sale-a-Bration stamp set -- your choice from what I have available!

Don't forget as well that I am once again taking orders for the Designer Series Paper and Ribbon Sampler Kits. These have been so popular and I continue to have people ask for them. This is a great way to get a little bit of everything without having to buy complete packages of paper or spools of ribbon. This is a limited time offer. Deadline for ordering the Sampler Kits is Sunday, October 5th at 11:59 p.m. (central time). I will place the order with Stampin' Up! on October 6th and you will receive your kits in the mail about 10 days after that. Click on the links above for more information.
Have a wonderful day and don't forget to stop by again soon! Blessings, Gretchen
