Time to put my toys away and get to my chores :)

Yes, it is time to clear off my kitchen table and clean up my mess :(
I am sitting here blogging and drinking a cup of tea to get myself ready for HOUSEWORK! YEA!! Someone has to do it right? Wish it was a housekeeper, but for today it is me.

I have made these little boxes every season. I never get tired of them because they are so easy! With different paper and embellishments for each holiday or occasion they look new every time!

I got the instructions for this box last year at Splitcoaststampers tutorials. This is called a pizza box and their dimensions are a little larger than I use. I use a 5 1/2" X 8" piece of card stock. Scored at 1", 3 1/2", 4 1/2" and 7" on the long side, and 1" and 4 1/2" in the short side. I will try the larger size this week and post side by side so you can see the difference. These boxes are so easy to put together. I used mostly Stampin' Up; supplies here except for the green and orange paper. Stampin' Up has the best Halloween stamps! If you want to see them for yourself click on over to Julia's blog.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Today I cleaned bathrooms and kitchen, repotted plants and swept the balcony. Washed, dried and folded lots of clothes. Prepared for school/work tomorrow. Vacuumed. The house work is never ending. I haven't been creating lately and when I don't have the time, it is hard to get motivated again or to know where to start. Your boxes are so cute. Take care and don't clean too much. :) Tammy

  2. Those turned out so cute Tina. Stampin' UP! keeps coming up with the cutest Halloween stamps and paper ~ you show them off magnificently! Forget the housework, it'll wait for you ~ you're on a roll, keep on Stampin'! Love ya, Julia

  3. You did an awesome job Tina! Glad you fit in some play time, and good luck in getting one of those housekeepers. It would be nice huh? Hugs, J~

  4. Very cute boxes. I would love to learn how to stamp. I have a friend that makes the most beautiful things with her Stampin Up supplies. One year she made me cookies for Halloween and tied them with a darling spider stamp and spider web yarn. So cute! Thanks for stopping by for a visit! :)

  5. These are great! You could make them for any season. Love it!

  6. The papers on these are amazing! I wish I could have come to your last craft day but my life has been Crazy lately... keep me on the list for next time though!!
