Busy Bee

Today I have been quite busy. Nate is out of town for work, so I had some time to craft, craft, craft! I made about 100 wedding favor tags for my friend Karen out of Shrinky Dinks today! Luckily, I made the basic template a few days ago, so all I had to do was...




and seal!
That's all!

After all of that, I still had some energy left. I decided to make a Wedding Invitation Shadow Box for my friend Sandra, who, coincidentally, is getting married the same day as Karen so I cannot attend. :(

A few days ago, I found a tutorial on how to make a I did!

I sealed a white greeting card envelope, stamped a design on both sides, made the necessary folds, added ribbon handles, and finally added little pearl accents with puff paint. Since I had all of the supplies on hand, this was a VERY inexpensive way to make creative gift wrap. It's the perfect size for a gift card!

What have you been up to? :)


  1. How did you get the shrinky dinks to go flat again?!? I tried doing some for Valentine's and they didn't work. What's your secret?

  2. Sorry I took so long to get back to you! I arrange my shrinky dinks on one half of a piece of parchment paper. When i pull them out, I fold over the parchment and press down on them with another pan (like a brownie pan). It flattens them out nicely. Hope this helps! Again, sorry for the delay.
