Get Well Spoon

   Giving Some Sugar to Your Loved Ones
         This Cold and Flu Season?
   Here's a Spoonful of Sugar to Help
         The Medicine Go Down.

When sniffles and achy bones derail holiday cheer, creating a light heart can make the experience bearable.  This "Get Well" card uses many lovely items from Altered Pages!!
(Here are the ingredients I "cooked" with):
Clear Embossing Powder
Cardstock with Printed Sentiments
Brown paper bag scrap

Resized image, printed on cardstock, adhered to burlap.
(Notice I glued the burlap up over the Merry Christmas sentiment.)
Coated spoon in pigment ink and embossed with clear powder.
(I heated and covered with powder 5 times to make it glossy.)
Glitter to fill the specimen bottle and glued in spoon for sugar.
(A drop of glue in the bottom, fill, and a drop on top to seal.)
Assemble parts and sentiments, adhere into place.
(Isn't this so sweet?!)

Adhere printed sentiment onto paper bag
and into the inside of card.
(Be creative, use your imagination for those you care for.)

Get Well Spoon!


  1. this is adorable! very clever and attractive - I may 'steal' this idea and do something similar when the need arises! thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I know this would cheer me up if I got the flu! I am thinking why not put on a small bag and putting in instant chicken soup and a small pkg of tissues!

  3. I love the tongue in cheek saying and your project is wonderful! Great job!

  4. This is truly a thoughtful gift! Anyone would like to get it and chase away the flu blues ~ To add to Jackie's thoughts, maybe include a tea bag!

  5. Great ideas! Thank you for the feedback everyone.

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.

YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.

# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
