Makeover Monday- Make a Fourth of July Treat Cone

July4th-treat-cone-video-tutorial-6-6Today's Makeover Monday project is easy and would be a great family project for your Fourth of July celebrations! 

Fill these little treat cones with wrapped candies and or small packaged treats and  you will have a great table decoration, too!

Let's take a look at the how-to in this video tutorial from the past!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Try this cone in different sizes.  As long as you cut your designer paper in a square, it will work.  This one today is 4" x 4".
  • The Labeler Alphabet (141936) would be a great way to personalize these for a party. 
  • The "stuffing" is just thin strips of Real Red card stock sliced with the Stampin' Trimmer.

Shopping List for today's project is below.

First Card Making Video Tutorial for the New Stampin' Up! Catalog!

Stampin-up-touches-of-texture-card-ideaWith today's launch of the new Stampin' Up! catalog, I thought it only fitting to share my first video using new product as well!

This card was inspired by a Make and Take from the Stampin' Up! Incentive trip using one of the stamp sets that was given to achievers, Touches of Texture.

There are lots of images in this set which will allow you many possibilities for your artistic creations.

Here's the video tutorial with steps for this card.

 

 Lisa's Inklings:

  • The images in this set are perfect for creating backgrounds.
  • After the fact, I noticed that I should have cut the "bonjour" strip a little wider.  Should have cut it at least 5/8" wide.
  • You're going to love working with the new In Colors. Love the richness!
  • Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, Very Vanilla: 3 x 4 3/4 and 5/8 x 2 1/4, DSP strip: 1/2 x 3.
