August Sunflowers

August – the last month of Summer and time for the lovely Sunflowers to follow the sun all day. Such an amazing flower a Sunflower is. Not only is it beyond beautiful but it also provides us with food. Mmmmm Sunflower seeds.

August equals Sunflowers to me and that’s why I chose to make two small Sunflower projects to show you today.

The first is the Sunflower Hidden Giftcard card from the JGW Sunflower Sunshine kit:

I made it from AC Cardstock in Mustard, Apricot, Spinach and Moss along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s Time to Flourish Collection.
I embossed the leaf with a embossing folder from Cuttlebug, inked all the edges with distress ink and tied a small Graphic 45 tag onto the gift card part of the card…..

…. because you can pull out the hidden tray for the gift card.

I also made the Sunflower card into a Shaker card by making some rings and gluing them under the top flower along with a piece of acetate. The shaker glitter is among other from Nuvo and Finnabair.

To go with this cute card, I made a small gift box – the Sunflower 3D Hex Box with Bee

This darling little starshaped box, is made from AC Cardstock in Cranberry, Mustard, Chestnut and Apricot and decorated with patterned paper also from the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Collection.

Instead of making the original flower center, I chose to make a chunky glitter center by gluing all kinds of glitter and tiny glass pearls onto a thick coat of glue. Sorry the picture doesn’t do it enough justice because it’s really beautiful.

Here are the two projects together:

Spell Bound

My all time favorite Holiday is creeping in slowly and I’m getting less and less time to make spooky decor…..Oh the horror!!!

Luckily there is still time and today I want to show you the latest creepy project: The Book of Spells from the JGW Steampunk Hex Kit from SVG Attic:

For this awesome “book” I used AC Cardstock in Black, Plum, Olive and Sand along with patterned paper from Basic Grey – Eerie.

I distressed the edges of the book along with the front panel. I also cut four of each corner, glued them together and applied gold foil.

I used the skulls from the Mourner’s hat from the JGW Raven Quest Kit also from SVG Attic and added some small black gems as eyes.

I made a small hole and placed a brad to function as a lock on the closure tab. Finally I added a small metal key in a chain to the upper right corner decoration and added some black crushed glas glitter to the pentagram.

This book is originally supposed to function as a gift card holder, but I figured I use it as a hidden candy stasher 😀

That way I get to get my share of the goodies before they’re all gone 😉

Thanks for visiting today and please remember to leave me a small comment on your way out ❤
