Top Note Frankie

Isn't he the cutiest Frankenstein you have ever seen?!
He was created (in my dungeon), my studio, OK OK so I made him one evening in my kitchen with a few Stampin' Up! products. And super easy to make.
Cut 2 Wild Wasabi and 1 black from the Top Note Die. Sponge the edges.
Cut the black in half and give it a hair cut. Cut 1 1" circle punch from Wild Wasabi, and 2 whites. Also cut 2 3/4" circle punch from black and add a little white gel pen marks for his eyes. Cut 1 large oval Wild Wasabi for the nose. Attach everything to snack bag or box as seen in the picture.

Sending one of these to each of my Online Stampin' Up! club members. Hope you like them.

Thomas the Train

What little boy doesn't love Thomas the Train?!
I love how this turned out, and I wish I had some instructions for you, but I'm sorry I don't. I really had to improvise, cut and trim most of it. The cirlces are 1", 3/4" , 1/2" and Oval punchs from Stampin' Up.
ALL ABOARD in loving this card, say CHOO CHOO!

Clutch Purse

Always in seach of something different to use for gift cards I discovered this one on the Splitcoaststampers website.

These cute little clutch purses can also be used for gift cards or may be some lipstick!
As with the men's wallets I suggest you do a test run with your sewing machine, just so you don't ruin your precious paper!


Recently I was asked to make a few gift cards for friend to give as a Christmas gift for her nephews.
We all know how hard it is to create cards for men, so when she asked me to come up with gift card holders, I wondered what I could come up with.
Several searches, a few more gray hairs and just about ready to give up, I found this one on the Splitcoaststampers website.

I'm really pleased and excited on the way they turned out. And although I am not a seamstress I think it turned out quite nicely. My only advice or suggestion is to practice on a piece of scrap paper first. As there is NO ripping out if you make a mistake.

I think I will decorate the outside of the wallet with the boys initials...let me know what you think!
