Printable candy bar wrapper

I'm still playing with the little snowboy I made.  This is a candy wrapper that fits a 1.55 oz Hershey's Milk Chocolate bar.
It is 5.5 inches square and all you need to do is print it out, cut out, wrap it around the candy bar, fold it over on the back, and use double sided tape to hold it together.  Who doesn't like a little chocolate gift?

Printable Christmas Gift Tags

I played around with my Digital Image program and made a little Snowboy. I decided to call him Snowboy because he reminds me so much of the little character that we all know as the Pillsbury Doughboy. I thought he would be cute on some Christmas decoration so I decided to make some tags.
I made these tags on an 8.50 x 11 inch page at 100%. It will be easy to print the whole sheet, cut out the individual tags, and punch out the little circle at the top to run a string or ribbon through.

Remember to set your printer to print landscape.

Gingerbread Graphic

I designed and made this gingerbread graphic a couple of years back. Today, I thought I would try to duplicate it and improve it but I have completely forgotten how I made it. I like to play with my Digital Image  graphic program sometimes but I am not a graphic artist and I think I'm just not in the mood to tackle it today.
Anyway, I'm posting it here and offering it for download if anyone is interested in using it in some manner for a Christmas decoration or wrapper. It could be used for a tag, a cookie wrapper, a jiffy popcorn cover, a lid sticker or many other things. You just need to resize it to whatever the correct size you would need for your project. If you decide to use it, feel free to let me know how you used it! It is 7x7 inches and 100 dpi.

Floppy Disk Post-It Note Holder

I saw one of these one day when I was looking through some craft sites.  I can't remember where I saw this idea but I thought it was cute and a good way to recycle some of the floppy disks I have and no longer use. I decided to make one and it was so easy!
I removed the old label and applied a graphic where the label was on the two disks. I attached the two disks together using ribbon.  You can use your imagination and use different methods to attach them together.  The holes are already there so this was easy.  Add any kind of embellishment or trim that you like and stick a post-it note pad inside.  That's all there is to it and it cute and different.
I think one of these would be good to hang by your front door, along with a pen or pencil,  with the outside graphic saying "leave a note".

Halloween Spider Pin



I made this spider pin from a black half (flat) craft marble, two tiny googly eyes, wire, tiny spaghetti beads, a pin back and E-6000 glue. Normally I do not like spiders but this is an exception! What do you think?

Recipe Card 19

Since this may be my last recipe card in this series, I thought I would make it a little different. If any of you readers have saved these recipe cards, I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them.
