Make and Takes

My daughter and I went to our local scrapbook store today for a free Make and Take event they were having. We made two different projects.
  • Folded Gift Box
  • Treat Bag
The first one we made was the scalloped tag and box. The box is made from a piece of 12 X 12 cardstock. There was no glue or tape required...just folding. Since I love to make foldables at school with the students, this was a great project. I am going to try and make another one on my own and see if I can get the same results. I was thinking it would be perfect for Valentine's Day too (or any other holiday/season depending on the paper you choose).  

The other project was the Treat Bag. I have made them before, but the products were different. The stamps were by My Favorite Things. The snowflakes were cut from felt and transparencies. The ribbon is a little thicker than I usually use, but it worked well.

My daughter and I had fun and the demonstrators were happy to see a 12 year old crafting with her mom. Now if she would only finish her Science project presentation board!

Happy Holidays,


  1. Wow! That's really neat! NO glue or tape?? How easy peasy (and clean!)is that for kids?! :)

  2. That was really nice to do something together. Your projects were nicely done.

  3. How beautiful!! Sounds like you had fun!! :) TFS!

  4. How fun! I wish they had things like that around here!you projcts came ut great! Have a good day! Hugs! Dina

  5. What a great mother/daughter activity!! I love it when my children craft with me - but we've never taken a class together (except when I've gone with them to a kids' class). I'm so glad the two of you had such fun! I hope her project got finished too!!
