My favorite box to make is the cute and simple Snickers Box made with the Envelope Punch Board. When I was making Display samples for the Kansas City Stampin’ Up! convention, I couldn’t resist including this box.
At the Thanksgiving Dinner at our house, my nephew’s wife saw my Stamping Studio and was excited to make something. Allie ended up making Christmas Snickers boxes for her entire fifth grade class in Manhattan, Kansas. I know the kids are going to love them! I wish I would’ve taken a picture of her boxes.
These beautiful Christmas Snickers boxes were Margaret Coffey’s 3-D Swap at the Kansas City On Stage event. I was blessed to meet her as she shared her boxes with me, and told me she used my directions to make them.. Here’s the link to the directions.
Here’s other Snickers boxes I’ve made the last couple of years.
If you make a Snickers Box, please send me a picture and I’ll share it with everyone! As Pat Knight taught me, you can fill them with a full size Snickers or four mini Snickers.
So I got my very tall son, Keegan, to help me with the lights on my tallest tree last night. Unfortunately only a short string was still working. He thought we should put them at the very top so when I bought the replacement lights, I wouldn’t need his help. That boy is always thinking!
Here’s my nativity set which I absolutely love! It was hand made in Australia by one of our camp counselors from Okoboji, Paul. Did you notice anything different about this nativity set? Typically in the USA our nativity sets don’t include kangaroos. Sadly my kangaroo got his feet broke off during our construction project. I’m hoping I (ie Superman) can glue him back together.
Ruth Sollberger, I thought you would especially appreciate my kangaroo. Ruth is my sweet friend who is a Bible Study Fellowship group leader and Stampin’ Up! Demo in Australia.
