Do You Curvy Keepsake?


CurvykHi Everyone! Sunday, I took my Curvy Keepsake Die & accessories to my mom's to make Curvy Keepsake boxes! My sister was there too. We made 24 Curvy Keepsake treat boxes for my sister's December Bunco night. She has them on her tree (see picture above)! How cute!

Curvy Keepsake cute! We had an asssembly line going. I die cut the boxes, mom glued the 2 halves together, sis assembled the tags. Then we all put candy inside and attached the tags and ribbons! Fun family time for sure!

Curvy Keepsake 135853 - I have to admit to holding out ordering. A stamper has to draw the line somewhere LOL on her budget. But with all the super cute projects on Pinterest, I had to have! And I'm happy to have in my collection. It's easy to assemble and a different look to a box. I made a batch for my craft shows and card class attendee thank you's too!

 The brown Chocolate Chip Cardstock card - I forgot to use the Embossing Buddy to take the static off prior to stamping. You can see a little white area on the top where some of the powder got heat set. I kept it in as an example the difference using the Embossing Buddy can make.

Also - a little heads up that starting Monday, November 24 - December 2, the Online Extravaganza.
