Our Craft Lounge - Doctor Peanut!


Here's another sneak peek for you, from the brand-spankin-new stamp company called "Our Craft Lounge"! (FRIDAY, FRIDAY FRIDAY, GIRLS!) Hmmm..I'm sensing a theme this week in my stamping...STILL SICK here in Minnesota! I've got drugs now, so life is good. Doctor Peanut prescribed antibiotics! YIPPIE!






Here's a little get-well gift set I concocted, using the 'peanut' theme, with orange circus peanuts inside. I made a matchy-matchy kleenex-y gift box and card with our cute little sick ellie!



I have to tell you about how this little gift set came about because you'll get a laugh outta this one. I was gifted a ton of cute boxes from Terri at Creative Cuts and More, to congratulate me for being chosen to the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen! Terry sells individual cuts of the Accucut die cut boxes, in any color you want! So in the goodie bag she sent me an Accucut cupcake box. I pulled the box out of the package in pieces, and looked at the box and thought, cool, they have KLEENEX boxes now! So I brought the box along with me on Saturday, and used my killer red tacky tape to adhere the kleenex-y piece to the top of the box, and then decorated the box with my little ellie image!

SEE, it looks like a KLEENEX BOX, RIGHT? RIGHT?!!!
Okay, so I totally missed the boat on this one. The piece I adhered to the TOP of the box, is the piece that goes INSIDE the box to hold the cupcake! DUH! Terry had to 'splain to me that the cupcake boxes have 4 pieces! NONE OF WHICH I ADHERED CORRECTLY! So I'd like to think this little box ensemble was produced by sheer CREATIVITY, not STUPIDITY, but alas, it wasn't. But hopefully you now have a new idea on how to use those STINKIN CUTE CUPCAKE/KLEENEX BOXES! :)

I can't believe it! The first thing I thought when seeing this set was to use circus peanuts too. My son is sick and he loves circus peanuts.

This is so cute and I love your story. I think you could say you were thinking "out of the box"!! Ü
