The Bonus Projects!

At every class (just about), I offer a bonus project to the attendees. It's really fun to think up something fun to make after the class projects are done. This month, since we were making giftcard holders, I figured out how to make one more real easy peasy GCH. I cut out a scallop square using the clear Sizzix scallop square die in Ruby Red. Then, I using my DSP (Christmas Cocoa Specialty) I cut out just half of the square. Added a notch using my 3/4" circle punch and then adhered the sides and bottom to the ruby square. That's it! Added a ribbon and embellished it with a scallop circle and snowman image. This cute snowman image is stamped using Always Artichoke. Image from the Christmas Punch set (Level 2 hostess). I decided that this year, I'm going the gift card route for my holiday gift giving...I couldn't help myself and had to buy the santa outfit die for my build-a-bear. Isn't Santa adorable?? To me, it was easier than putting a Hello Kitty together...but I guess it was partially because my dad cut out all of the pieces for us, thanks Dad!!
Sorry for the late post. I just couldn't get it all together with so much on my plate! I am getting caught up though, so hopefully, I will be back on a regular posting schedule. Thanks for your understanding! Have a wonderful Monday and thanks so much for your visit!!

I loved making the bonus project, it was so much fun. Thanks to your dad for cutting out all the pieces for this month's project. I swear that there was as much pieces as the 50 tags class. That must have been so much to prep. Thanks again!!!

everyone was so lucky to make this bonus GCH! it came out really cute! I think I may go your route too...it just seems easier, but I like to give my present some thought. cute build a bear, but I think it was too many pieces! I like the HK~found an easier way to make them. had a good time at the party and target! gotta do that again!
