My First Schultuete.

I used a sheet of cardboard you can get at Walmart. Then I glued wrapping paper on it (My sister helped me with this step and with getting a good point on the bottom). I made a separate small cone to cover the tip. I added some UTEE on it also.

My grandson, Dean, is into "cars", so I thought that would be great for the cover. He is starting school next week.

For the top I used 2 yards of tulle. It was only about $2.50
I attached mine with staples, and since I used the whole 2 yards, the staples are not too visible.

Inside we just added a bit of school stuff like crayons, erasers, pencils... a little candy and a couple of toys. On You Tube you can find instructions on how to make one. Without the top its about 23 inches long. Renate

Swirly Scribble Shaker Card.

On these 2 pictures I used the flash. I make an envelope, this way I don't have to use foam.

On this one I didn't use my flash. This one looks like it should as far as the colors go.

Another Mini Purse.

It is so humid today, here in NC, that my lens kept fogging up. That's Mango, our cat.

This one I took inside, so it is at least better to see.

Mini Purse made with the Envelope Punch Board.

At "The Paper Pixie" you can find a video on how to make this cute purse. I just changed my size of it a bit. I used a 6 3/8 x 6 3/8 piece of light grey card stock. The first score and punch is at 1 1/4, the second score and punch is at 1 3/4. I used stamps from Stampin up, timeless textures and I think the other one is gorgeous grunge.

I glued 2 handles together and put one layer of UTEE on it to make it stronger. On the bottom I just glued some stones.

I think here you can see the UTEE on the handles.
Great directions on the video.

Origami Treat Pouch.

I found a video tutorial from: the paper pixie on You Tube. I put some UTEE on the triangle in front and on the back.

I punched 3 holes on each side and tied a ribbon on the bottom one.

On this one I just used a clip to hold it shut. I only punched one hole and added some  ribbon.

Here I punched 3 holes on each side and tied burlap strings thru it.

Here you can see it better.

These are easy and fun to make.
