Fancy Folds and 3-D items: Birthday Ideas

I signed up to do the Blog Hop for vc_rocks. It's all about using fancy folds and 3-D items. Here's a couple things I did recently. Be sure to click on VC_Rocks blog to see all the blogs with great ideas.
This is the card closed. It's 4 inches by 4 inches all folded.
This is the inside. The Happy Birthday stamp can be found in the Age Awareness stamp set #135381
It's a photopolymer set (clear and very sticky) $15.95. You can purchase it from June's Stampin' Up! website 
I call this card a box fold because it folds like you would close a box when you don't have tape.
Be careful when tucking in the last corner. Since this card doesn't have open edges, it would be a great place to add confetti to surprise someone.

Here's a cute candy box that you can add a gift to. It's the perfect size for some tootsie rolls, other small candies, chap-stick, lipstick, etc. I made it with the envelope punch board. I started with a piece of the All Abloom paper #133703. You get 24 sheets of 4 1/2 by 6 paper for $6.95    Then I scored with the Simply Scored along the long side at 1, 1/2, 2 and also at 4, 4 1/2 and 5. On the short side, score at 1,2,3, and 4. I don't have a video but there are lots out there.

Thanks for stopping by!

Home from Vacation

Had a fine time in North and South Carolina. Now I'm home and starting to stamp again :)   Here's some photos from our trip. I will post what I've been stamping tomorrow. Now, just enjoy what we saw on the trip :)

We have a beautiful country. Love the mountains and the trees. 
The first mountains we saw on the drive down. We started in Northwest Indiana and drove through Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. 
Interesting to see the layers of stone. This was in Kentucky
Atlantic Ocean- View from our hotel room at the Landmark Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Palm trees in South Carolina. They are everywhere and very beautiful.
Hollywood wax museum in Myrtle Beach. We didn't go in but had to stop to take pictures of King Kong :)

Shoes belonging to members of our group. Best to not carry tons of sand around inside of them.

My daughter having a good time in the ocean. She got swimmer's ear but was able to enjoy it without getting water in her ears.
Another view of the beach from the hotel room. We had an oceanfront room.
Rainbow we saw in Kentucky. Isn't it gorgeous? This was taken with the car window up.
