Mothers day class

Hello everyone.
I know I have not been posting as much as I should, but things are getting back to normal. I have my new computer! I went with dell but I am going to tell you this computer is big. I am not a computer person so I went with the one My friend the computer Tech told me to.. I think this thing can power my whole house. I have no idea why it is so big I will be asking her that soon.
Ok so I have a few pictures I want to share. First up is our Mother's Day class. This was a lot of fun, but it did take some time.

Next is the same purse, but used our new line of paper from the summer mini island Oasis item# 117173

Items used to make this card!

Here is another great project I thought you would enjoy it is not mine. Patti did this one..How cute is this?

How to make this Drink Hut:

(1) 4" x 4" So Saffron CS Roof Top
(1) 3-1/2 X 4-1/2" Old Olive CS front skit, crimped and
randomly cut 1/4" wide and 1/4" away from the top edge.
(1) 1-1/8" x 3-1/2 Island Oasis DSP for Box lid
(2) 1-3/4" x 1-1/8" Island Oasis DSP for Sides of Box
(2) 1-3/4" x 3-1/2" Island Oasis DSP for front/back box.

Left photo: using a straight edge and craft knife, cut a slit through the box lid and attached DSP 1/2" away from the lid edge.
Right photo: Position and adhere wood skewers with clear tape (or you can use crystal effects). A clear ruler is used to line up the skewers so they are straight. 2" should be exposed above the box line.

Right photo: apply sticky tape to the front of the box. See pink arrow. Remove sticky tape backing and apply crimped Old Olive CS: "gathering the paper to the opposite end.

Add a small amount of Sticky tape to the lid to secure the lid to the box since treats will be obtained from the underside of the box. Now roof can be attached using mini glue dots positioned on the skewers.
