Dollar Tree fall door hanger

After seeing the article from Angie at Burton Avenue, I couldn't wait to try this adorable fall pumpkin door hanger.  I found several hangers to choose from, but chose the same as featured in the article.  I also found the ribbon and leaves at Dollar Tree.  I have enough ribbon the make several more of these, so it really inexpensive.  Bonus, the Oracal 12x12 vinyls sheets are on sale at Michaels this week for .99 each!  I will say, after following the tutorial, I think I would not cut the vinyl and try to line it up to the pumpkin, but cut out a rectangle, stick the vinyl in place, then cut away the excess with a craft knife.  The rest comes together quickly and uses a bit of hot glue to place the leaves and bow.  I ran out of jute twine so I used linen thread as a substitute.  Thanks for looking!  April

Jolly Elf gift card holder

I am selling at our local high school craft fair in November.  Last year, these Hershey Kisses gift card holders were a huge hit, along with a couple other style of holders.  You will find the link to my last year design here and the video tutorial here.
This year, I have three colors - Old Olive, Real Red, and Shaded Spruce.  I am using retired 6x6 Stampin Up DSP, a sentiment using a Cricut print and cut on white cardstock, and punch art elves.  The elf is made using Petal Pink cardstock for the face and ears.  The face is punched with a retired ornament punch from SU, and a fiskars flower petal punch for the ears.  The nose is a 3/8 inch circle punch and is attached with a foam dot.  They eyes are punched from a 3/8 in circle in white and a 1/4 in circle in black.  You can also use the owl builder punch from SU.  The hat is punched in Real Red from a heart punch, then removing the bumps of the heart with an oval punch.  I also made the green brim of the hat from the oval punch.  I glued mini white pom poms on the tip of the hat and a hand drawn smile.  Thanks for looking!  April

Donald Duck card

This is a card from Queen and Company's Magical Characters shaker die kit.  I chose not to make a shaker and just use the iconic Donald Duck sailor hat.  This card was fast and easy to put together.  I do recommend using an adhesive sheet on the back of the cardstock before cutting to make it easier to piece together.  I used the retired Stampin Up bow builder punch for Donald's bow.  Add a couple of buttons and some white gel pen details and there you have it.  Thanks for looking!  April

Mickey subway art

This second subway art canvas was made for my youngest.  He is a huge Mickey fan and I wanted something to put over his desk.  It uses images found on the internet, as well as the Mickey font Cricut cartridge.  Again, I used the Jennifer Maker tutorial to create the canvas.  Thanks for looking!  April
