Hey there tootsie, I like the way you roll

This week at The Cutting Cafe, the design team is featuring projects made with a very fun
cutting file set called  Little Red Wagon Box Template.  I decided to make a candy treat holder
 so I left the lid off the box and filled it with tootsie roll candy.
I printed the tag and stripped paper using the pdf files from the Candy Sentiments set.  Then I cut out the wagon and box with the svg files from the Little Red Wag Box Template set using my Silhouette Cameo.  Added some heart brads to the wheels and tied the tag to the saran wrap with stitched ribbon.

White, red and brown cardstock
Tootsie Rolls, Heart brads, Ribbon, Saran wrap and glue dots
Flower punch, 1/8" circle punch for top of tag

Happy Birthday

I decided to push myself out of my comfort zone and try to make something for the Simon Says "Use A Arrow" Challenge.  This was a difficult challenge for me as I am not into scrapbooking, so I am not used to doing these types of layouts.  But I gave it a go just to see if I could do something with the arrow theme.  I picked two cutting files from the Silhouette store - Arrow Happy Birthday and the Balloons.  Designer paper is called Mabel by Stella Rose.  Added some lace and buttons to complete my project.

Owl Are You?

I'm in the mood to make spring cards.  This flip/swing card is for a friend who lives in a very rainy town.  I used a awesome Square Flip SVG cut file that Regina designed for The Cutting Cafe.  You can find it HERE in the store.   The cute precolored owl digi image from Dustin Pike Doodle Dragon Studio.  Stitched all layers together and assembled.  Then added ribbon, buttons and some cute flowers with shiny black centers.

machine stitched around the main image and attached a tiny tag with some twine.
