Glamorous Handmade Necklace Holder Box and #MakeitGiveit Sweepstakes

Hello everyone! Nina here! I’m excited to share a quick way to custom-made a necklace holder with the popular Envelope Punch Board and the #MakeItGiveIt Sweepstakes – a partnership between Jo-Ann Stores and the National Military Family Association. Glamorous Handmade Necklace Holder Box We went all gold and glamor for our tree and gift wrapping this year. We can all use some glitter and metallic shine for Christmas, can’t we? The oversized golden flowers were made with the Flower Punch Board from some Goldie Lox Foil Paper. I’ve shared a tutorial on the Flower Punch Board earlier here and I am sharing a quick how-tos for the necklace holder made from a piece of kraft cardstock (12″x12″) and the Envelope Punch Board.   Ever since Laura shared the Box Buster with us, I’ve been wanting to try it! How cool is it to make any size of a box using our beloved Envelope Punch Board? I measured the […]

DIY Halloween Pencil Toppers

Hello everyone! I’m very excited to share today’s project with you! Since Waffle Flower does not have any Halloween designs this year, I haven’t been able to make anything for Halloween except some cards until… yesterday! I was so happy to receive the invitation from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores to participate in their new campaign: #DIY4Halloween – a perfect opportunity to DIY for, isn’t it?! I went to my local Jo-Ann with the coupons on my phone (did you get the mobile apps? so convenient!). I spent a couple of hours browsing the fun collections, dreaming of the possibilities and brought home the supplies for my Halloween Pencil Toppers! Supplies I will try to link to joann.com where you can order some of the supplies online. But since it is close to Halloween, you probably need to go to the store to get your supplies. – Styrofoam Balls (There are many sizes, I picked the Floracraft 2-1/2″ Styrofoam Balls – 6PK/White.)

Two Cards with Chickaniddy Date Night Collection

Hello everyone! Popped in to share a couple of cards I made with Date Night Collection from Chickaniddy. The mint green and navy blue color combo makes me so happy! I bent the butterfly sticker and put a piece of foam tape underneath each wing to add some dimension to the card. The sentiment “Save the Date” was punched out from one of the journaling cards with a 2-1/2″ circle punch. The leftover piece was used on another card as shown below. I layered the flower stickers with foam adhesive for dimension. Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
