Starbucks Anyone?

Book folding has  become a passion for me and believe it or not it requires little supplies and is much easier than it looks! Recently I made this book fold book for my friends birthday who loves Starbucks.  I even covered the book with a Starbucks bag.  As I folded each fold I wondered if the Starbucks logo had a meaning.  Turns out, in 1971, Starbucks (then a mere fledging coffee shop on the Seattle waterfront) was looking for a logo, something that would embody the seafaring history of its home city. … Heckler “pored over old marine books until he came up with a logo based on an old 16th-century Norse woodcut: a two-tailed mermaid.”  So now you know!

That’s a wrap

2018_09_27IMG_3134 I made the cutest gift bag using now retired Tutti- Frutti DSP from Stampin Up and the fabulous Apron Builder Framelits #145661.  Its hard to see but I used the Apron of Love stamp set to randomly stamp images on the tissue paper.

Royal Apron

2018_09_22IMG_3132 I continue to think of fun ways to use the Apron Builder Framelits #145661 from Stampin Up.  I made a sweet apron box to stash a mini bottle of caramel apple Crown Royal.  It was the perfect gift for my whiskey loving friend.  The paper is from the now retired Tutti-Frutti collection but paper would work.

Todays card is an alternate design for the Stampin Up April 2018 My Paper Pumkin Kit – You;re My Anchor.  I Punched a hole in the box lid from the kit and then added left over elements from the kit to create a card that fold flat to fit in an envelope.

Gift card purse

I made this cute little purse that holds a a note and a gift card inside the modified note card envelopes.  The paper is left over from the now retired Tutti-Frutti DSP.  The sentiment is from the Apron of Love #145835 stamp set from Stampin Up.  The purse closes using a small velcro dot.
