Dragon Breath Cure

Happy, happy Friday everyone!
I'm sharing a 
TOP DOG DIES
project with you today using one of their new
August Releases, "Dragon"

So, why NOT have a gift sack made just for dragon breath :)
Fill it with tooth friendly stuffs like sugar free gum, a new toothbrush,
some paste, floss, etc...I'm thinking it would even make an adorable
Halloween treat instead of handing out candy!

I die-cut the dragon from a piece of Moda fabric.
To do so, adhere the fabric to a piece of lightweight cardstock.
I ran my cardstock through the Xyron Creative Station (w/ permanent adhesive)
and then applied the fabric over the sticky part.  
Layer the die and fabric/paper with the metal shim for an extra crisp cutting.

I then attached the dragon to the sack with high and low dimensional foam adhesive.
Where the arm and bend of the leg are cut out, I added the thicker 
foam adhesive...it just gives it a little more dimension.

I kept the design pretty clean and simple by accenting with a small
hand-tied bow and a teal pearl for the eye.

My son will think I'm crazy, but I'm sending it off to college with him when
he goes back on Monday! :)

I hope you have a greattt weekend!

A Festive Unity

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
