The project that I did for you today is an Easter Egg Candy Holder. I created the egg file and cut it on my KNK Zing. The egg is actually cut from a sheet of colored plastic. It is the first time that I have worked with this medium on my Zing. It cut unbelievable well. The chick inside is from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge.

Valentine's Candy Wrapper

I now have this cute little Valentine's Candy Wrapper file for sale on my site. It's available in the following formats: .AI, .SVG, .PDF, .WPC, .MTC, and SCUT. Click on the Shop tab to go to my Etsy Store to purchase it.

The unique thing about this box is that all you do to close the sides is twist the folds. There is no glue or tape required. Since this is especially for Valentine's day, I added scallops to the edges so they form hearts when closed.

CHA 2012 in Anaheim

I was thrilled that I got to spend the day in Anaheim at the Craft and Hobby Show today. It is not open to the public, but I was able to get in as a "Professional Crafter". There was a lot of walking and tons of cool stuff to see. I also did my share of make-and-takes. The show goes on for three more days. I'm still not sure if I will be able to make it back.
