Moments to Remember Guest DT Work!


Here are some of my projects for my Guest Designer work for Moments to Remember. What a fabulous kit! You can make Christmas projects or everyday projects with it! It is so versatile. And the price for everything you get, $15, can't be beat!!

This "Christmas Wish Box" was such a blast to make! Everything was made using the kit except for the box, styrofoam balls used to make the snowman, the Wish plaque and just a few little things like the ribbon and fibers.

For the snowman, I cut the bottoms of 3 2-inch styrofoam balls with a knife, to make them flat. I then coated them with glue and then sprinkled with glitter. After they dried, I hot glued them together. I added some sturdy cardboard as the arms and the hat, scarf and sign are all made from paper from the kit. To make the hat and scarf, I misted the paper with some water, crumpled it up and then molded it into the shape I desired. The eyes, nose and mouth are made with mini brads.

The tree is cut from one of the Fancy Pants papers included in the kit. I added some buttons to it, also included in the kit, and some sheer ribbon and to make it sturdier, I attached some 20 gauge wire behind it and then covered it with cardboard. The presents are made from paper which I folded to resemble a gift bag and a wrapped present. For the gift bag, I added some ribbon as the handles and cut small strips of paper and added to inside of bag.

Here are 2 candles I made with the kit.

Here is a layout made with the kit.
Here is a frame I altered. Everything was made from the kit except for the frame, the orange button and pearl center. The paper, flowers, ribbon and chipboard words are all from this awesome kit!

And, lastly, here is a card I made. Everything was made using the kit except for the ribbon, buttons and letters.

I still have lots of leftovers from this kit! And I plan on making some more projects with them. I will post them when I am finished. Also included in this kit, is the most adorable paper-pieced ornament, made by one of their talented DT members, Shannon. It is awesome! I can't wait to use it!

I had taken my "Christmas Wish Box" to my craft show on Saturday and as soon as the show started, it SOLD!! And then the buyer, came back and ordered 10 more!! So a big thank you to Judith, if she is reading this!!

I also want to give a BIG Thank You to Moments to Remember, Robin and the entire DT and to all the members! Thank you for having me as your Guest Designer for November and for making me feel welcome to your wonderful site! I absolutely love it there! The site is awesome and the people are so sweet and very talented! Thank you again!
