All Stamped out!

I never thought I would ever say this, but I am truly stamped out!  I have inked more rubber this weekend than I ever have in my life!  My fingers actually hurt!  It was a very productive weekend, though!  I got a ton done in preparation for my booth at the Rockton Fair next weekend.  I have lots to show you but I need to pace myself...I likely won't have much stamping time this week and DEFINITELY won't have any next weekend!  So, for now, I have this cute little box to show you.  It is really just one of our Kraft gift boxes from the Mini that I dressed up a little...see what you think:

EASY paper bow...I'm definitely making more of these this year!
 Cute, huh?  This was so quick and easy to do and that bow...a piece of Christmas cake!  I used a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers but changed it a bit.  Instead of using a different brad to assemble each layer, I used one long one and added all the layers but the final loop in the middle to it.  It made for less bulk and super-easy assembly.  I also changed the width of the centre loop, increasing it to 1 1/4" so that it filled in the centre more.  I LOVE this...my hubby and four-year-old were even impressed!  Here's hoping the fairgoers will like it and sign up to take my class!
