Craft Sale #4 curvy boxes

Stampin up's Curvy Box is soooo fun to decorate!!!  The box is cut with 2 pieces, glued together and then the top closes and opens for adding a small treat or gift.  This box was so fun to play with and so many people shared all their ideas on Pinterest.  (a great place to go to get inspiration)  I had ordered this die the beginning of October and it was back ordered so I went to a friends house and cut some shapes to play with thinking that my die would be in soon.  Well It actually didn't arrive to me till the day after the sale.  I had one of everything that I made and sold all but about 3 of them.  This turkey was one I made after the sale and the box with the flowers was one that was left. (I actually had a few of  this one with the orange box and flowers sold 2 I think)  I forgot to get pictures of the others I made so I will be posting them as I make them again to show you.  The nice thing about these boxes is that you can open and close them and it doesn't ruin the cute box that the gift came in.  You can see the top on the orange one.  The one side has a hole and the other side has the half circle that fits into the hole to hold the box closed.

Craft sale #3

2nd wreath I made was with some more burlap ribbon.  This one had a gold edge to it and was really pretty,  I did the same as with the fall wreath (craft sale #2).  This one I made a bow for, I added the red plaid ribbon to the burlap to add some color, it has a burlap covered button in the center.  then I made the poinsetta from burlap and added red and green glitter glue,  the center is made from gold sequins from stampin up. This one didn't sell either soooo I'll have a new christmas wreath come December.  :)

Craft Sale #2

I wanted to branch out and see if any wreaths would sell, this is the first one I made.  Started with a swimming noodle and duct taped it together.  Then I covered it with some burlap ribbon and tied the ends to hold it on.  I used some Add a little Dazzle metal sheets to make the leaves that I die cut with stampin up bigz dies from last year and this year. Adhered them to cardstock with sheets of double sided tape and then used some Viva to add the fall colors. 

So this did not sell and now I have a new wreath for my front door which is fine because I really liked it!!!!!   :)
