Girl Scout Projects


Morning Everyone !!! Well I am back with a second post today.

We woke up to our 1st snow today !! Only have a couple of inches so far but still snowing.

So hope you all enjoyed the Sugar Nellie Blog Hop today. Those new images of Krista’s is just so much fun to work with.

Today I would like to show you a couple of projects my oldest granddaughter and I have been working on. She is in Girl Scouts now and needed something for each of the girls and her Scout Leader so I made this Tissue Box for her with my new stamps that arrived yesterday. I just love Tilda with her Snowman.

I am entering this into the Magnolia-Licious Highlights Challenge Blog  where Diane asked us to make a project with a Word or Letter in it. So I have used the word Snow here and have used some Twinklets on the wording. Then over at  Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog there is a Color Inspiration so I used the colors from the picture to color Tilda and Snowman.  I have also used some Snowflakes from the SU Sizzix dies and some stickles .


Here is the top of the tissue box


Then here is where we had our assembly line going lol I cut all the boxes out and Kirstie and I taped them all together and added the snowman and snowflake to the box.  She is going to add some candy to the boxes for her friends in Girl Scouts.


Well that it is for me today. I am starting to feel this probe be released some so hopefully it will pass soon and I will feel so much better.

Have a great day and stay warm.

  10. What a lovely thing to do with your granddaughter. The first is my favourite - with your perfect positioning of those letters with the paper pattern. It's those little large details that make such a difference in a project. Those snowflakes are just gorgeous shapes too. Hope you will start to feel better very soon.
