Cookie Swap Tutorial

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments for the Just Rite Blog Hop.  Many of you mentioned you would like to come to my Cookie Swap and receive the ornament.  Since most of you, probably all, do not live near me so I thought I would post a tutorial on how to make it.  It is very easy.  So lets get started.

This is the product I used:
Classic Squares LG S4-126, die#3 & 7. Classic Squares SM S4-128, die#3. Snowflake S5-017, accents.  Create A Flake 2, small accent.  Labels 9 S4-233, Labels Trio S3-147, Tags Trio S3-148
Times New Roman Font, Uppercase 25pt.(JB-08060), Lowercase 15pt(JB-08650), Favorite Occasions Set (JB-08690), Something Sweet Set (JB-08775)
Chamoi E35, Atyou Spica Lipstick (GLLIP), Blossom (GLBLO), Mint(GLMNT)
Tsukineko Memento tuxedo black, Stazon Timber Brown, Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Vintage photo, Colorbox pigment black ink
Black Detail embossing powder
White gel pen, craft cardstock, red cardstock, white satin ribbon, 3" ric-rac ribbon, 5" & 7" strips of 1/4" sheer ribbon,  3D white paint, thick mounting foam, stylus, clear plastic (from packaging) 
1. Cut two craft cardstock from Classic Squares LG, die#7.  Score each side of 1st one @ 3/8" in & 7/8" in.  Fold.  Cut each corner out (like picture).  Now center Classic Squares SM, die#3.  Cut out.  Cut clear plastic with Classic Squares LG, die #3.  Adhere.  Tape box together.
2. Score 2nd one (bottom) @ 7/16" & 15/16".  Fold.  Cut each corner.  Tape box together.
3. Cut/Emboss two Create A Flake 2, accent.  Cut/Emboss Snowflakes, accents.  One each.  Ink edges with vintage photo ink.
4. Stamp Gingerbread man in tuxedo black ink on craft cardstock.  Color in.
5. Stamp "Homebaked" (font 25pt.) & "with (15pt.) Love" (25pt.) with Stazon Timber brown. Cut & layer on red cardstock.
6. Place "cookies" into bottom box with mounting foam.  Add 3D white paint for icing.  Let dry.
7. Adhere sheer red ribbon, then ric-rac ribbon.  Adhere Gingerbread Man, and sayings with mount foam to top of box.  Adhere top box to bottom box on sides, to keep together. 

Now wasn't that pretty easy.  Regarding the rest of the set.  It is pretty self-explanatory.  But the cookie sleeve is made from the liner that your bacon comes on.  I know what you are thinking, but it worked perfectly.  Just cut and sew along the sides.  On both the invitation and the cookie sleeve I used a brad, paper circle, and embroidery thread for the closure.  Hope you enjoyed.  Have a wonderful day!!

Just Rite Mega Font Blog Hop

Welcome to Day One of Just Rite Mega Font Hop!  It is going to be amazing.  Stop by each designers blog, 54 in all, 28 today & 28 tomorrow, to see what they have created for you.  We are having a Super 7 Day Font Sale to go along with the Hop.  Take 30 % off all Just Rite Fonts, and the Horizontal and Vertical stampers.  Sale runs today, Sept. 17 to Sept. 24th.  So hop on over and get some new Fonts.  We are also having a Mystery Blog Candy giveaway!  Do you want to win some candy? Of course you do!  The Mystery is no one knows which blog is giving it away-nope not even the designers!  3 blog candy prizes each day will be given away to 3 random commenter's from 3 random designer blogs.  Comment on as many as you can.  You have until Sunday @ noon EST to leave your comment.  You have six chances to win.  Check Just Rite Blog Sunday Evening to see if it's you.

Here is my first project for todays Blog Hop.  I created a Bookmark Gift Card.  I used Spellbinders Create A Flake 2 & Labels 9 with an aluminum can to make the Snowflake & tags which are attached to the ribbon.  The Just Rite fonts are perfect for this.  I used the Wood Stamper 2" with Bonus 15pt Font & Center for the words Faith, Hope & Love. For the saying, I used Times New Roman, upper & lower case.  You can find them here.

My Cookie Swap Set was created to inspire you to have one.  Invite some friends and enjoy a night sharing some goodies and fellowship.

The Cookie Gift Box Ornament is for each guest that comes.  I always like to make everyone something to take home.  A cute way for all your guests to remember the night. 

The invitation, cookie sleeve, and ornament were all made using Times New Roman Font Set, upper & lower.  These fonts allow you to make any combination you need.  Hope you enjoyed what I created for you.  Now get going and make some.  Have fun and enjoy the rest of the hop.
