Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take less than 10 minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


I used Jamie Cripps 3D Santa Suit Bow from the Silhouette on-line store and loved it! This is the perfect bow to put on a child’s special gift. This bow took minutes to make and it turned out adorable.


I love this bow and can’t wait to buy the file.


Visit Jamie’s blog, Bits of Paper to see more adorable bows like this one.

Have a wonderful day!

Wednesday Rewind….. Gift Holder

I got the idea for this adorable purse from Maria who designed a similar purse and displayed it at the Graphic 45 booth during CHA. Maria’s purse was glued shut, but I thought it would be fun to make a purse that would open and close. I made a few minor changes to her design. The purse is the perfect size to hold ChapStick or a small nail polish. Make sure you check out Maria’s purse here. She is mega talented and I love all her work so be sure to check out her blog, Paperiah! Thanks Maria for the great idea!




I decided to publish this post again because it would make a great holiday gift for teachers. Just switch up the paper and you are ready to go. You could also add a fun paper bow!



Have a great day!

Tea Light Christmas Cards

Today I am thrilled to share two tea light holders designed by Lori Whitlock.


I used Lori’s Tea Light Christmas Card file to make these adorable gifts. I love using glitter paper with her files. My Cameo does a great job cutting glitter paper. I just set my blade to 8-9 and my speed to 1 and it cuts thick glitter paper perfectly! I keep one blade just for cutting glitter paper.


Lori’s cute card features a box on the side that can be filled with treats or 3 tea lights. The card opens so you can put a sentiment inside and is both CAMEO and Portrait compatible!


This would make the perfect teacher’s gift! I used paper from Lori’s Christmas Cheer collection and her adorable chipboard.


I love her Christmas Cheer collection and I know you will too!


I used the Santa and Ho Ho Ho on my card. This collection is too cute! Be sure to check out Lori’s shop for more projects.

Have a wonderful week!

Make it in Minutes Monday

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take less than 10 minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.

Before we get started, please click here to enter my Silhouette Portrait Tote giveaway.


I used Jamie Cripps 3D Snowman Candy Box and my Silhouette Cameo to make this adorable gift box. My Cameo does a great job cutting glitter paper. I set my blade to 8-9 and my speed to 1 and it cuts thick glitter paper perfectly! I also keep one blade just for cutting glitter paper.


This box holds an Andes 28 piece (4.67 oz.) candy box perfectly! You could also use it to hold other fun Christmas gifts too! This would be a perfect gift for that special teacher. Since I wanted more dimension, I added pop dots to the head, scarf and entire snowman. I love that Jamie includes lots of layers with her files!

Have a wonderful day!
