Hexagon Explosion Boxes

For Baby Boy

Inside for pics

Baby Girl

Inside for pictures

 These explosion boxes are made using a compass which I have not used since geometry class! I will post a link below to make the cover and the base of these boxes.  My daughter wanted one for a boy baby shower that she was invited that is a very good friend.  Her friend used it for a centerpiece!  Since I made the baby boy one for her, I had to make a baby girl one.  Both boxes were made from Echo Park's baby collection.  The center for the inside is a baby crib with a teddy bear inside the crib.  The tutorial below is for 3 layers but, as you can see, I only did 2 layers.

Halloween Caldron Gift Bag


I just love making these caldrons!  There are 2 levels in making these cute bowls/caldrons. The witches legs are a template that I found on Pinterest.  I will put the link to the tutorial below so you can make them.  I did use paper for the handles with ribbon on the paper instead of just ribbon.  It is hard to see but I have a plastic spider that I got at Michael's on the front of the caldron. I hope you give these a try - just love how they came out!

Birthday Stepper Card


Perfect sentiment

 My son's birthday is next week and he is a guy who loves the outdoors especially camping!  These dies from Karen Burniston camping dies were perfect for his card.  The bear die is from Marianne Designs and the bears on the "Happy Birthday to you" sentiment are from Stampin up.  The cute fox on the back of the card is from Karen Burniston also.  I haven't made one of these stepper cards in a very long while, in fact, I think this fold was one of the first fold that I did after a trishutter fold.  This card was easy to pop in an envelope and mail. Happy Birthday Eric!! Your father and I love you!!

Eric is the anchor!
