Mini Beach Chair.

This project was a bit challenging, but I made it. On the right was my first attempt at a chair, made with toothpicks. On the left is my do-over. It measures about 41/2in. x 3in.
The pillow is about 1in.x1in.

I decided to sew the cover, instead of gluing it.

I used paperclips on the joint, and did not glue it down, this way you can adjust the back.
The boards I made out of cardboard and stamped on them. They measure 4in.x1/2in.
I rounded the corners, before I punched the holes in them.

For the towel, I just cut a piece of an old towel and rolled it up.

The skewers were a bit smaller then the hole, so I covered the edges in about 3 layers of UTEE.
The holes I punched with my edge punch below.
It was fun to make, but quite challenging. I might make another one...
It is raining here, so when the weather gets better I take some pictures outside with the chair. I just think the colors look better. Renate

Matchboxes made with the Envelope Punch Board.

I found a tutorial on how to make crackle paint. It turned out pretty good.

Inside of the box.

I added acetate so you can see inside the box.

I made the net from a tutorial I've seen. On the anchor and letters I put UTEE.


The inside.

I also added acetate to this box.

They turned out quite good. They are easy to make. Here is where I found how to make any sixe box with the EPB:

Mixed Media Mother's Day Card.

I had a small bottle and filled it with "little items". Then I glued it down with heavy gel medium.

Happy Mother's Day...Renate

Mini Milk Cartons.

On all the sides of this milk carton I put just a bit of UTEE on it.

These are easy to make. Renate

Underwater Shaker Card for Dean.

 Here you can see the UTEE in the background.

This is how I make my shaker cards. I just make a pocket, this way it has more depth.

I just printed a underwater scene and glued it to the pocket.

Cut out your opening and add your acetate...

I also put some UTEE on the background to give it the "wet" look.

 Then you just add your sequins and close up the pocket.

Mini Easter Crates with Tutorial.

I found a video tutorial on You Tube from Rick Adkins. The only thing I changed, I made my sides 1/2 in. wide instead of a 1/4 in. and I used cardboard for some parts to make it stronger. It's a great tutorial, and I hope you will check it out on You Tube.

You start with a piece of cardstock 11x4.

Score at 3in. and 8in. Then you turn it to the short side and score it at 1/2in. on both sides. (sorry, I didn't have that picture).

Then you cut out the center of the outside flaps. After that you punch the handles on the side with the word window punch.

I don't have a woodgrain stamp, so I just used one from the Timeless Textures Stamp set.

I stamp the inside and outside.

In the center I added a piece of cardboard to make it stronger.

Then I cut 6 pieces out of cardboard. I stamp the front and back and distress all the edges.

I start on top on both sides gluing the pieces on. 

Then the bottom on both sides, and last the center.

The finished product. I'm gonna use mine for little Easter crates.

These are easy and fun to make and can be made for different occasions. They measure 3x5.

Here are my finished Easter crates. I die-cut the letters for their names.
