Sweet Sixteen Card and Box (Blog candy contest still open, scroll down)


The design team were asked to use the popcorn box from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I cut it in pink and decided that with a matching card it would make a really sweet (pun intended) gift for a 16 year old. Just big enough to pop in a piece of jewellry. The lace is real, ribbon is American Crafts. The scallop on the card was cut with Plantin, and the ice cream cone was dotted with dew drops. The stamps are Studio G. Papers are DCWV baby girl nursery stack.
I went out shopping with Mike today - a rare enough event to be documented in history books. He needed some new shorts, the weather here is hotting up now. On the way back, after a delicious iced coffee, we went into a new super Walmart and I bought a sewing machine, just for using on cards and layouts. It is only a basic one, but has the added huge benefit of an automatic needle threader and bobbin winder. So all that squinting at needles and muttering about eye tests is a thing of the past - if I can ever decipher the instructions!

Enfys, as usual, the popcorn bag and ice cream card are beautiful! What an absolutely perfect sweet 16 gift idea. And how jealous am I about that sewing machine. I almost bought one in WalMart last week!

Enfys, this came out very sweet looks like a winner to me. I can so relate to muttering at one's sewing machine! It might be time for me to buy one. I honestly did not know they made a self threader but I am heading to Walmart tonight to check it out. I love sewing on my cards.

Ho Enfys these are so cute, I love the ice cream design and think that would really suit any teenager by changing the backing colours to suit. Love the popcorn box, have used it myself but I use mine as a desk tidy as it holds more and looks alot better than those plastic ones.

Keep up the good work and inspiring me along the way :-)
