Here I am once again after realising that I need to use Mozilla to be able to bring my photos through to my blog.
Gosh its been a warm day today. First of all it was raining and then I heard it was 90' humidity. I wondered why my feet were kind of sticking to the floor.
For the ruffles on the end you will need to pull out one sheet of tissue paper. Fold it in half so that you can find the centre. Unfold it and then fold one side of the long side toward the middle to the midline. Do the same to the other side. Then fold in again to the midline on both sides. Do this one more time until your tissue paper is about 3" wide. You will then need glue down one side to keep them together while cutting little strips about 2/3 way, careful not to cut to far. This forms the ruffle. You will need to do this twice as you will need one for each end. Its quite a tedious job but if you have one of those scissors with the three or four blades on it you will be finished in no time.
Madex website to check out her lovely card. She also gives the dimensions for the Z Fold.
For Christmas I decided to make some biscuits to give to my fellow colleagues at work. All in all I made around 130 biscuits. My daughter had found the recipe and I thought it was a great idea as they were Christmas Wreaths glazed with lemon icing and dotted with red and green decorations. I have since made another two batches with the last one being tonight. My mum found the cookie maker at a market and paid only $2.00 for it years ago. She has never used it but gave it to my daughter and I borrowed it for my biscuits.
I first made one of these boxes at Pat Carr's Cancer Council fund raising day. Pat had actually used Be Of Good Cheer DSP. I have used Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP. You will need to purchase a pack of Kraft Gift Boxes from the main Catalogue, only $4.95 for a pack of 4. I have used Very Vanilla Cardstock to cover the sides and top and embossed them with Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I used Teeny Tiny Sentiments for the Merry Christmas and Itty Bitty Banner Die to cut them out. I could only fit 8 biscuits into the boxes but that was enough for a tasty little treat.
Well I am off to bed now as its been a long hot day for me. I am worn out trying to catch up on my chores and errands.
Thanks for popping by :)
