I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Monogram madness...............

Recently my sister got engaged. She called me a couple of weeks ago and said that the wedding is in November.  Of course my response was "This November?"  She said...."Yes!"
Oh my goodness...... Now this is her second wedding and it won't be a large wedding, or at least we hope not....Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!  But it keeps growing in size like an ugly mole.  Don't get me wrong; I'm super excited for her.....but her daughters and I will be the ones delegated to work. Anywhooooo, like anything else.....it's as fun as you make it, right??? 
So, I'm off and running.......!!!!!!

I decided to make 100 monogram favor boxes.  I printed out their monogram on cream cardstock, making sure it would fit in the 1-1/4" circle punch. I got about 40 per sheet of 8-1/2 X 11"

Here is what 100 monograms looks like. 

Then using Tags, bags boxes and more cart. I cut out the square box at 5" ; that would make a folded box of about 1-1/4" . I needed it just big enough to put two kisses into it.

I also punched out {100} scallop circles (Stampin' Up! punch)in
 cream cs and {100} 1-1/2" circles in black cardstock.
I layered them all together.

Then I printed out the saying for the boxes, again about 40 to a sheet on
cream cs.
(Here's some kisses from the Mr. and Mrs.)

Here is all the boxes cut, the labels cut, and the monograms put together.  I finished one for you to see the finished product with the ribbon. Pam's (my sister) wedding colors are cream/ivory and black.  I have to wear a black dress with pearls....yep, I'm the bridesmaid.....!!!!!

I've have a LOT of scoring to do.....wheewwwww!!!

Until later, crazy crafters.........Gotta split.......TFL!!!!!!
