Fast Friday: Berry Cute Jack 'O

Hello, hello friends!
This is what I'm calling a "Fast Friday" project that I made using
Pumpkin Finisher Dies and Halloween Trio Dies.
This project took less than 30 minutes to put together, so it's great
for any of those quick gifts that you're needing to whip up.
It all starts with a couple of wood berry baskets that I painted burnt orange.  Once dry, I attached them together with a large hinge at the back that I screwed in place.

I die-cut the jack'o lantern's face from black cardstock, ran them through a Xyron 3" Sticker Maker and then attached to the front.

To the top I added a ribbon bow along with a die-cut bat that I attached to a 
small length of pipe cleaner.  I also fashioned two other pieces of pipe cleaner
 in a qurly q fashion and then glued them all to the top with fabric glue.

Fill him up with paper shred and lots of yummy goodies!  

Visit Top Dog Dies for more ideas using their dies, along with other 
major brand dies that they carry!

Have a happy weekend!

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…
