A FUN DAY!!!

Hello everyone!!! Today is another exciting day! First off I would like to wish my sweet husband Dan a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Love ya honey!
Secondly I'm super excited to announce that I have a tutorial today on Splitcoast Stampers showing how to create the Pumpkin Bucket from a previous post here on my blog! If your a follower or subscriber to my blog you saw the mini tutorial that I did here showing how to create a Pumpkin Bucket using the Pillow Box Sizzix die, since then I was asked by the very talented Beate to do a photo tutorial for Splitcoast and I was honored. To see my step by step photo tutorial and Beate's video tutorial creating a Christmas Pillow Box Bucket click here.
The project I have for today is using the same Pillow Box Bucket except I altered it a bit, instead of having a handle for the bucket I made a handle for a Hot Cocoa Cup. I followed the exact directions from the tutorial except I took the handle and cut it down to 3/4" x 8" and scored 3/4" at each end, then using the Slot punch I picked a side for my cup handle and punched a slot at the bottom of the cup and directly above at the top of the cup and attached the handle with tape. Inside the Hot Cocoa Cup I put two packs of hot cocoa, mini marshmallows and some chocolate truffles.

Supplies: Sizzix Pillow Box die, Polka Dot BG, Yummy, Nesties oval dies, Striped ribbon, Eyelet border punch, Brads, Pop dots. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Whisper White.

To add to all of the excitement or craziness at our house, yesterday I bought my husband a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy for his birthday, he's so cute! Pictures to come in my next post.

Thanks for your visit!
