Luncheon Table Setting with treats

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to you all! So over the last couple of weeks I've shared some of my projects with you for my Luncheon table setting I was working on, well here it is. I had so much fun making all the little goodies to gift to my friends in club, and they loved them all! 

So the bunnies you see on the plates I did make and those have hangers on them so if they want they can hang them from a tree or whatever they choose. Next they each also received a mini Hexagon box, which I do have a video tutorial on and it can be found here. I've made these boxes in several different sizes, and this on the table by each plate is the smallest of them all. Below you will see the larger ones.

Next I gave each a little pink cup filled with Homemade Italian ToTo cookies that I made, love these! 

Now the bigger Hexagon Boxes you will see next held the gifts for our raffle we do. I had three of those done up for the gifts. Love making all the fun goodies for this.

Video on Hexagon Box can be found HERE
I do hope you enjoyed my post for today and thank you so much for stopping by!
hugs to all,

Shabby Chic Mother's Day boxes

Hello crafty friends and Happy Wednesday to you all! Todays project was designed for The Robins Nest Creative using dew drops to decorate my Gift box. 

To Start

To start I made this box small so it could hold some goodies for my table setting I'm doing for Mother's Day. I picked some pretty Design paper that I bought years ago its K &Company. Next I picked my die cuts, and it was a flourish that I have and some ready to go, and then picked my flowers they are from RRR and are absolutely beautiful.

Decorating My Shabby Chic Box using dew drops

I started with adding My design paper to my Box before putting together, that made it easy. Then once together I added my flourish and Hot glued my flowers on, that helped hold the flourish in place. For the dew drops I used the light pink dew drops in the tear drop shape, and then green dew drops in different sizes. I also added the diamond shaped ones to the lid, as I thought they added that little extra to my box. Then I added lots of Really Reasonable Ribbon to close the top, and for my double bow. I love how the dew drops add that extra embellishing that my box here needed.

think later on I will add a tag to the top that says Happy Mothers Day, and distress it so it will coordinate with this box, as these will be part of the gifts on my table. I cant wait to do my Mother's Day Table setting, will be fun!. I do hope you enjoyed my post today and please let me know what you think in the comments below.

Items used:
The Robins Nest Dew drops in pinks and greens
K&Company old design paper pack
Card Stock AC, and StampinUp!
Really Reasonable Ribbon (Peony Delicate Stitched)
Really Reasonable Ribbon flowers (Open Roses, and Sweetheart Blossoms)
Hot Glue
Art Glitter Glue
Scor-Tape (Really Reasonable Ribbon)

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you enjoyed my post for today. happy crafting to all

  • Now its time to glue all the design papers and card stock to each panel.
  • Put together
  • now decorate
Items Used:
Dew Drops for the eggs around the bottom, these are from The Robins Nest Creative. Love usng these for different things. The grass, fence, and eggs are all dies used to cut them. The darling Bunny Chick is from kaDoodle Bug Desigsn and is super cute. Its Called Eggsploding Sweetness SVG file. I did use Really Reasonable Ribbon in a satin pink for the closer, and then I used Gingham, and pink dots for the bows. The sentiment Im not sure who its by, as it was a random red rubber stamp I had in my stash.
