Busy as a Bee

Here are a couple new items I will be including for sale at the boutique...(Are you getting excited yet?  I sure am!)
Remember my new Sizzix Pro???

Well there it is again if you missed it.  The best invention ever for people who hate to cut stuff out!  I purchased a huge banner die with cute scalloped edges.  Generally it would be used with paper but I used fabric.  I cut 12 layers with no problem.  I will be cutting out the banner pieces to be sewn together and packaged for sale for $3.00 per banner flag/each.  I will include fabric for the customer to make his own letter so they can built a banner that has the sentiment they want on it rather than purchasing a with a sentiment already fused on.  This way they could spell out their name or whatever floats their boat.
Here is an example of a banner with 6 banner flags and the word "Create" spelled out.

Here is a close up so you can see the cute scalloped edging.

I am also going to be making some of these, I absolutely love these cute jars.  I've ordered the bits and pieces to make these too.  I'm thinking in different sizes.  I want some for my craft room!  You can get directions at www.acasarella.net.  You can even purchase them from her store.  I've seen other people do this but she takes the best picture I've seen!  Her blog is pretty kewl too so you might want to go take a look!


  1. Aww! Thank you so much for including my jars in your post (and for your kind words!) Happy Holidays!!

    1. Thank you for the great project. I will be making a few to sell at the quilt show boutique in 2014. The money that we make in the boutique is used for so many wonderful causes. I have been blessed with finding things to make and sell. I am hoping we do well. I really think these will go over well!

    2. Best of luck at the boutique! (And happy new year!)
