Spend $35.00 in products and get a really cute Valentine test tubes that you can decorate and fill with goodies for co-workers,kids, grandkids, students, friends, etc.! The kit comes with an exclusive stamp set, glitter paper and some cardstock, beside the 12 test tubes. I played the other night and just HALF of the kit is done! I used some shapes from the Cricut Artiste, used the glitter tape to accent the glitter paper shapes, the Slate Mini Medley, and pink flowers from a discontinued accent pack! The possibilities are endless!

Ornament Creation Cube:
Cut 6 nearly 3” x3” B & T papers, ( I used bulk Partridge and Pear and used 4 sides the same side, top and bottom the opposite side of paper).
Attach with Bonding memories glue, after distressing box and edges of paper with coordinating ink.
Use scissors to poke a hole in the center top of the box.
Use your quilling tool to hook onto a desert sand ribbon that has been knotted together in a loop, to push the knot through that slotted hole.
Place 4-2” x2” coordinating cardstock pieces (I used cranberry) in the 4 smallest mini-flip flaps from the small pack of flip flaps.
Attach your flip flaps to each of the 4 sides. Add pictures as you desire.
Cut leaves and poinsettias for the top using the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge!
Make sure the Real size function key is pressed for the flowers! One is cut at 2.8” and the other is at 2.1”., using Accent 3, shift and the Z key.
The leaf is cut at 1.8” using Accent 3, Shift, and 2 key.
Use the holes in the middle of these items to thread your ribbon through as a topper, after you “shape” the flower and leaves with the rub-on tool.

I have been having so much fun creating Christmas gift items, that I have been horrible about posting, so I am happy I can share all of these ideas from Close To My Heart in one post! I have classes scheduled to make all of these items, so if you want to make your own gifts too, just let me know, so I can get you what you need to create yours!

Cherish page 26, Column composition. I used left over copper butterflys from Bliss and copper mini melody. I sure hate how fast things are discontinued, so I need to remember to buy things I want as soon as I see them! This paper pack will still be available next month in the new catalog!

It is super easy to build up the photo on three sides with the thin part of the 3d foam tape (leaving the side open where the picture or journal
ling can pull out) Attach a mat and pull tab
and you are done!

Just in time for Father's Day or Grad Masculine card! Folded directions:
Large size folded shirt card!
Cut an 8” x 12” small print B&T, so the design is laying on it’s side.
Score the paper the long ways 2” from each side and fold it inward, so the edges meet in the middle of the page.
Fold the “bottom” of the paper back 1” from the bottom.
Measure 3” from the top fold mark and bend the paper inward so the tip of the “collar” touches the center point , then unfold the collar and trim ¼” from it.
Fold the bottom of the card upward and tuck it under the collar by scoring it 5” from the bottom.
Next, make a necktie using a 4” x 1” solid cardstock and 1 x1” knot for the top of the tie( with a pop dot under it) . Make a mini pocket and “handkerchief” , and add a tie bar if you wish! ( Liquid glass hold the pocket down well. )
On the inside mat two light cardstock messages, that are 2 ½” x 3 ½” with 3” x4” mats.
Adhere the top one under the folds that make the collar.
Fold out the “sleeve of the bottom half starting at about the 4” mark from the bottom.
Use the second piece to cover that and the brad used to mount the optional tie bar.
