Here's a "tease" picture to entice you to read all the way to the end! It's called "I Made These":
While I was off work for the last 2 weeks of December, I had a chance to check out Martha Stewart's new show. I decided after watching a few episodes, that I must have some crafting capabilities somewhere hiding inside me.
She seemed to spend ALOT of time talking about how to fold the perfect t-shirt. I never really thought about it, but gosh darn it, after watching her do it (and do it, and do it, and make every guest do it....), I decided to give it a shot. Something about putting a finger here, folding here, wrapping this, yada yada....
Long story short, it was much more complicated than she made it look on TV. Joe's still laughing at me. Luckily, we use hangers for all our t-shirts...crisis averted.
So with that behind me......I was intrigued by this idea she had of converting Christmas cards into little boxes. Now that seemed useful, and much more up my alley! Make a few markings, a cut here and there, a few folds, some glue, and PRESTO! A Beautiful Box!
So I grabbed all the Christmas cards we got and went to town. The good news is we had lots of cards...the operative word being "had". This was a little tricky at first, and we did have a few sacrifices (sorry Mom, we loved your card though! Really!). But I'm pleased to report that I eventually got the hang of it, and created THIS!!:
What I thought was cool was when you opened it, and see the message inside:
I ended up making 4 boxes in all. *flex*
Martha, if you happen to see this, I hope I made you proud, and want to let you know that I am available for booking on your show. Maybe you can teach me that whole t-shirt folding thing once and for all....
