Happy Fall-i-Days Event from Reverse Confetti

Well, how do y'all like our Annual Happy Fall-i-Days online showcase event from REVERSE CONFETTI!?  This is the LAST day of our three day event to totally inspire you to take your Reverse Confetti supplies to the next level.  You probably won't see any cards, but a TON of fun decor, party and entertaining ideas that are perfect for the season upon us.  Over the past couple of days, the Confetti Crew has been wowing us with all things Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Today it's time to get your jingle on and see a few Christmas projects.  At the end of this post, I'll have a link list that you can use to see all the designer's projects, but check out the Reverse Confetti blog in case you missed part of this event.

A couple of weeks ago, I saw the cutest little paper crate that someone had made using a Silhouette file as a Halloween candy crate on Pinterest.  I wondered if I could emulate that same project, but using my dies from REVERSE CONFETTI.  So my project today is what I came up with from that inspiration, and I'm sharing exactly how I did it as a little early Christmas gift to YOU!

I wanted there to be a handle at the top, so the SWEET TREAT TENT was a natural choice as a base for this part.  Then I just had to figure out how to make a box shape on either side of those pieces!

Here's what I did:
1.  Cut 2 SWEET TREAT TENT pieces from cardstock.  Cut off top tabs and fold bottom tabs outward.  Use Scor-tape to adhere backs together, leaving bottom tabs free. 
2.  Cut 2 cardstock pieces 7 1/2 x 3 1/2.
3.  Score both at 3/4, 2 1/4, 5 1/4, and 6 3/4 on the longer side and at 2 on the shorter side.
4.  Cut out unneeded pieces as shown.  Fold along scored lines.
5.  Use Scor-tape to attach boxes to each side of TREAT TOTE pieces.
6.  Decorate with 4 patterned paper pieces for each side at 1 7/8 x 2 7/8.  Continue decorating as desired.

Once I made the crate itself, it was time to decorate with my VERY MERRY 6x6 pad for starters.

The tag is not from any die, just a rectangle that the stamped image from the NAUGHTY OR NICE stamp set fit nicely on that I had stamped in BRICK ink.  "Nice" is checked off with a Gold Uniball Pen.  I'm assuming I'll have someone nice to give this to.  Then I just punched a hole in the top and tied it to my crate. 

I added the HOLLY Confetti Cuts with some hot glue right to the knot of my ribbon.  Four fun sized Snickers bars fit nicely on each side of the crate.  Now, who has been NICE?

You're going to want to see what the other girls did today, 
so as promised, here's a link list to all your favorite elves:

Happy Fall-i-Days Event from Reverse Confetti

Well, it's finally here!  Our Annual Happy Fall-i-Days online showcase event from REVERSE CONFETTI!  This is the first day of our three day event to totally inspire you to take your Reverse Confetti supplies to the next level.  You probably won't see any cards, but a TON of fun decor, party and entertaining ideas that are perfect for the season upon us.  For the next three days, the Confetti Crew will be wowing y'all with those kinds of things, fitting for the next upcoming holidays--Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  At the end of this post, I'll have a link list that you can use to see all the designer's projects. 

The Confetti Crew is focusing on all things Halloween today.  Since my daughter Audrie's birthday was yesterday (pray for me--I now have 2 teenagers here at the house!), and her birthday party is this Saturday with a Halloween flair, I thought I'd make some fun party favors that I think her friends will enjoy (only if I fill them with candy or money).

I started with some super cute little mini coffee cups I had picked up somewhere last year, but these would be cute even with full sized cups.  I found a template online (Pinterest) for the patterned paper and wrapped it around the cups.  The tops were covered with a circle punched from the FRIGHT NIGHT 6x6 paper pad.  Then I added the little straws (cut in half).

I made the cute ghost tags with the HALLOWEEN BITS Confetti Cuts, which I stamped "BOO" from the TREAT YO' SELF stamp set onto the bottom of each ghost with TANGERINE INK and attached with some twine.  The bats on top were then added also from the HALLOWEEN BITS Confetti Cuts simply with a glue dot.  These were super easy to make and duplicate. 

I'm going to fill them with candy for Audrie's friends that come to the party (a small affair), but now she's informed me that she is inviting two more friends.  What to do?---I don't have any more cups!  Anyone have any they want to part with?  :(

You're going to want to see what the other girls did today, 
so as promised, here's a link list to all your favorite haunts:

October Sketch for You To Try from Reverse Confetti

Well, I'm getting all into the "fall-ish" mood over here and really need to take a few minutes to get all my Halloween and fall decorations out to spruce up my house a bit.  Hopefully today or tomorrow that WILL happen!  Maybe if I get a little pumpkin spice latte to help me get motivated!?  Yes, I think that shall happen.
Another thing happening around here is the October Sketch For You To Try from REVERSE CONFETTI!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago for this month's sketch and as a class card for my October 'Fetti Fans workshop at The Little Blue House.  It uses the HAPPY HARVEST stamp set and HAPPY HARVEST Confetti Cuts as the main focal point.  I love the stitched detail I added to the background circle with the DETAILED CIRCLES Confetti Cuts on top of the pinked circle from the FLOWERS FOR MOM Confetti Cuts.  I tucked a couple of sprigs from the WHEAT Confetti Cuts behind the acorns for a little texture.  Does it feel like fall where y'all are?  (I'm still praying for those affected by Hurricane Matthew.)

Y'all be sure and head on over to the Reverse Confetti Blog 
to see what the other gals have created for today, 
and all the details on how to play along for a chance to win a  
Reverse Confetti Gift Certificate!

October Release Blog Hop from Reverse Confetti

Well, it's the 8th of the month and that means it's time for a brand new shiny blog hop from REVERSE CONFETTI!  This time, we each have two new projects to share for the hop.  We hope you've enjoyed seeing all the sneak peeks and are as excited as we are about all the holiday offerings!

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from LAURIE'S BLOG. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of projects for you to see using all the new Reverse Confetti stamp sets and dies! 

I'm having a crafty garage sale today, so come by and see me---email or message me on Facebook for my address if you're local to Fort Worth (that's my cheap, shameless plug before I go on).  I'm going to keep this short and to the point and I'll just list the new stuff I used under each project, okay!?!  (Don't want to keep anyone too long before shopping!)  Pssst...The ornament card is one we'll be recreating (some papers may vary) in my October 'Fetti Fans class at The Little Blue House!





Okay, I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of EVERY MONTH for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! You've reached the end of the hop!  If you got lost along the way, you can find the hop order and list of all the participating designers in the master list below or on the Reverse Confetti blog. Everything we've shown over the last few days, is now available in the REVERSE CONFETTI website.

A few things before you hop along though, just to keep you “in the know”…

Countdown to Confetti: Naughty or Nice

Well, we are on day three (the last day) of our holiday themed sneak peeks from REVERSE CONFETTI, and today will be no different in sharing some more great new products available tomorrow.  Does anyone have a favorite set picked out?  How about those new product lines (cardstock, ink, stencils and 6x6 paper pads)?

So what say we keep knocking your socks off today with the debut of the new NAUGHTY OR NICE stamp set and I've used out newest POINTED OUT stencil.

I started with a piece of the new STONE cardstock and then laid the stencil over that.  Using a baby wipe and a pink gelato, I spread some color through the stencil.  I really like how this worked--I colored directly onto my baby wipe and then "wiped" it over the stencil, being sure to get the gelato color down into the openings.  It now looks like a warm cozy sweater!  The snowflake paper is from the VERY MERRY 6x6 pad and that's what I stamped the NAUGHTY OR NICE sentiment on.  The last touches were the SNOWFLAKE TRIO Confetti Cuts and the pink sequins.  A fun and non-traditional card!  

Okay, that's about all for me for now--Just so y'all know...everything will be available on the 8th--that's tomorrow!  We'll wrap up with a blog hop that day as well that y'all won't want to miss. YAY!  Meanwhile, don't forget that Jen has a link list for all the sneak peek days (October 5-7) over on the REVERSE CONFETTI blog HERE.
