Teacher Treats!

Just wanted to share a quick project I made using the Artfully Wicked Kit from
I used a wooden treat box from my local crafting store....covered it with paper using Mod Podge, glittered the handles. I cut out a tag and covered a wood circle with another pattern paper. I stuffed some Tulle into the box and will fill it with treats for a teacher at school!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave me some love!

SMASHing my Memories

So I am in LOVE with the idea of a Smashbook but didn't want to buy something I could here is what I did!
I used a cereal box to make the covers....just cut them up and covered with some Kraft paper....
I made dividers from the cereal box and some cheap dividers I bought at the Dollar Tree....
I made some pockets to hold things for smashing and punched holes....rings....and BAM!
