Play Day

It has been one of those days full of reflection. This morning I received a package in the mail from my sister Marie in Colorado. She has the most generous heart and a gift of insight. I thought of her often as I took the afternoon to relax and spend some time crafting. I often wish she were close enough to be on the receiving end of a hug of appreciation and love for her guidance, encouragement, strength and belief in those who felt they weren't worthy. Sister, you are more special than I could put into words!

My Play Day Projects:
I decided to use some of the piles of paper scraps that I had covering shelves, drawers and more. I made this Matchbox - for some reasons my pictures did not come out very well. I filled the box with some hard candies but there are so many different ways it could be used!

This second project is cuter than the picture portrays - it is a paper box. Again, I am filling with candies. I used the silhouette paper pack from CTMH that was in my package from my sister!

I have always wanted to try a Tic Tac holder. I love these!

I finished my Play Time by making this adorable paper bag/box with six coordinating cards. I saw this made by Dawn Giffith? but when I went back to find the site I couldn't located it (sorry)! The great thing about this project is that you can use one piece of DP 12x12 to make the bag and six simple blank cards!
