Freebie Alert!

I just got the cutest papercraft in my email, which reminded me that I wanted to tell you about Scout Creative's Papercraft of the Month club.  Sign up for the emails, and each month they send a great free papercraft, with a calendar of the month somewhere on it.  I ADORE some of the past months, like last month's wild cell-phone charging station, and the hot dog stand from August, and the pool cat with boom box from July, and the Snails from March ... well, I guess I like 'em all.  AND if you go to the site, they have all the ones from the last couple of years posted.  Check out March of last year.  They are really cool, and totally free.  You don't even get any extra emails, just the papercraft link each month, on a PDF.  COOL!

A new papercraft FREEBIE from ME!!! 
A Christmas gift box or decoration.

I'm so excited, my hubby is coming to visit me for the week!   I wanted to post this project now, since I probably won't be blogging while he's here.  UNFORTUNATELY, my camera won't work for me tonight.  Not sure what's wrong.  I put together this little fireplace box ( a re-do of something I started last year), where the cover is the mantle, and I included some stockings to hang (some blank so you can color your own). A nice little Christmas gift box.  AND, you can always cut out the fireplace area, cover it with vellum, and use an electric tea light in it.  I included extra fire, I'm not sure why, maybe you can trace it onto the vellum, or put it behind.

I'll show you what it looks like on paper, and maybe someone can build it, take a pic, and post it here, since I can't. 

Papercraft Gift Box - A fireplace!


You can go grab this over at Box or 4-shared.  Print it out on cardstock, fit to page.
I hope you all enjoy it!   And please share a photo of it finished,  if you can.

And have an excellent Thanksgiving  -Kat

Hello out there!  I'm finally back online after 4 months, no internet.  We were going to wait and move the dish we already have along with the business , but the house still hasn't sold yet, and our business website (  needed much updating.  I actually got connected a week or so ago, but made myself stay away from the blog so I could get "real work" done.  What with paying two mortgages and two sets of electric, oil, phone, etc. bills, I've really got to put my nose to the grindstone and try to make some cash. 

I've also had no TV all this time, but don't really miss it, except maybe for Glee. 

That didn't keep me from poking my nose around the net to see what was new.  I found a few things I want to share with you all, and this one just can't wait.  It is perfect timing before the holidays, for all of you who are making your own gift packaging.  It is a FREE TEMPLATE MAKER!  It makes a couple of basic shapes of boxes and envelopes, too.  Check it out at the Ideogram website.  What fun!

I've got more to share, but ta-ta for now.  So happy to be back!  - Kat
