Dragon’sLair Den: The Witch in the Moon

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share my project for this month using the¬†Trick or Treat Collection from the Dragon’s Lair Den. I altered a 4 oz can to hold a special treat. ūüôā

From the Trick or Treat Collection Paper Pack I choose the “purple witch” image which I set my printer on the #10 business envelope setting and printed onto a sheet of white cardstock. I trimmed to fit and ¬†then adhered to the can. I added Diamond Dew Drops to the bottom and lace to the top of the can.

Next I printed Trick or Treat Journaling Cards and fussy cut the witch out which I added a little chalk pastels to her and then lightly outlined her with a sharpie. I added Crystal Stickles to the moon. I set that aside to dry. Next I cut a piece of burlap ribbon to fit a mini October desk top calendar which I adhered to the top of the ribbon, added some bling to two of the edges and glued one corner to the can. The scrap leftover from fussy cutting the witch out I punch three leaves that I crumpled up , inked and adhered to the can along with the witch image. I finished off with sequin, dew drop and cording to make this spooky cute treat holder.

Supplies Used:

Dragon’s Lair Den:¬†Trick or Treat Collection Paper Pack,¬†Trick or Treat Journaling Cards
Other Supplies: Stickles, Diamond Dew Drops, Sequins, Leaf Punch, Black Sharpie, Bling, Cording, Lace, Chalk Pastels

Robin’s Nest: Stars and Stripes Forever Altered Can

Hi everyone!  
Are you loving Summer as much as I am??? I kinda go into¬†hibernation in the Winter months but once it warms up I’m outside enjoying cookouts and time by/in the pool. Well 4th of July is almost here and I would to share a quick and simple¬†project I created as a table decoration for the 4th. But first, before I forget, I would like to share with you that over at the Robin’s Nest store they have the Diamond Shaped Dew Drops on sale this month for 20%¬†off. There is so many things you can use these little dew drops on…embellish layouts, make flowers, etc. ¬†Also¬†we have teamed up with Timeless Twine¬†too. What a great¬†combination huh?!?!?!¬†

My supplies list of what I used is below: 

Vanilla Glitter Fluer Cardstock
Red Glitter Sorbet Cardstock 
Blue Glitter Crackle Cardstock
Diamond Shaped Dew Drops
Glitter Blue Alpha Letter Stickers
White Alpha Sticker Letter
Jean Cardstock
Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine
Button
Lace
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge Iron Gate Diecut 
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Ovals Large
The Paper Studio Script Embossing Folder


Well first off you need an empty and clean can. I used a pull top can so I wouldn’t have any sharp edges on the inside because if there is a will or way I will cut¬†myself…lol ūüôā

Next I Gesso the bottom and top edge of the can. No need to do the center because you will cover that with cardstock. Once the Gesso is dry I used Folk Art Tapioca Acrylic Paint to go over what I just Gessoed. Let dry. Now cut Vanilla Glitter Fluer cardstock to fit can. Once you have done that use Mod Podge to adhere to can.

Cut a 2″ strip of Jean cardstock and cut from the¬†iron gate diecut a piece long enough to go around the can. Next adhere to can along with lace and a 1/4″ strip of Jean cardstock to can.

Cut from Red Glitter Sobert cardstock using the largest Classic Scalloped Oval. Next emboss with the Script Embossing Folder. Cut from the Jean cardstock using the next size under the largest Classic Scalloped Oval. Now center and adhere to the front of the can along with a patriotic image of your choice.

Next make a bow with the Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine. Adhere a button to the top of the bow and then shape.


Adhere to the side of the can. Next cut a strip of Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine and glue one end of under the bow and the other end tie a small bow and adhere to the other side of the can.

The banners slightly fold the end and cut a small “v” out of each and adhere to the top of the twine. Next add U.S.A. to each of the banners.

Lastly add Diamond Dew Drops to the Iron Gate diecut and you are finished.

Now you have a quick decoration for the 4th of July. You can add a candle, silverware or anything your heart desires.
