Picked for You



Time for school to start already? There’s always a teacher you want to thank or a child going off to school you want to encourage. The ‘Picked for You’ stamp set  has a distinctive style that includes three layers to the apple…perfect for using with the stamparatus stamping tool.

Here’s a couple of alternative ideas for the set that are fun to make and great for gift giving or craft fairs.



Basic Box for Candle:


*Cut a 6 3/4″ square piece of cardstock

*Score at 2″ on all four sides

*Cut through your score lines to the center square as pictured

*Fold on score lines

*Fold  flaps in and glue together to make box

Embellish as desired…tuck in some decorative shred around candle and some buttons for some extra Pizzaz.


Gift Card Holder:

* Cut a 2 3/4 x 6 3/4″piece of cardstock

*Score at 4″ and fold

* Cut a half circle at end of 4# side

Embellish as desired

The candle can be found at Ikea and the shred is from Dollar Tree. The card bases come from card kits I purchased prior at SU or from Paper Pumpkin Kits I received. Check both out as the value is definitely there.  As an example and with Christmas coming, take a look at this steal of a deal I found in Clearance..
