Make It & Bake It

Today I'm up with a handmade gift idea that will showcase your awesome crafty, 
as well as yummy baking skills.  I recently ran across a similar idea in a magazine and 
thought it would be the perfect project to make with the new "Wishes" Collection by

This unique cookie, treat box uses just one 12X12 sheet of paper and a section of acetate
 overlay. (I had a few of these in my stash that had printing on one end...
I just trimmed the printed end off and used the clear portion for the top).

To make the box:
1. Score "Merriment" 12X12 paper at 1.5", 3" 4.5", 7.5", 9" and 10.5" marks;
 turn paper horizontally
2. Score paper at 1.5" and 10.5"
3. Fold the 3" and 9" score marks in towards the center of the paper
 4. Fold the 4.5" and 7.5" score marks up to form the 'sides' of the box
5.  Turn the paper; fold in at the 1.5" and 10.5" score marks. 
6. Where the horizontal and vertical score marks intersect, cut a slit into the paper
 just up to where the marks meet; glue edges together to form box shape
7.Cut a piece of acetate to measure 5.5" X 9"; score (lengthwise) 1.5" from each edge and crease the acetate.  Apply high-tac adhesive to ONE of the sides and adhere to the inside of the box. 
8.       Embellish the top of the box with ribbon, doilies and pieces from the 
"Wish" Enhancement and Details sheets.
 You may wish to line your box with wax paper or tissue before filling with goodies.
Now, who wouldn't want to receive such a sweet treat!?!

Authentique Products: Wish Collection- Merriment Paper;

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
