Cook Book Barage

Whew......... I am finally done with all the cook books for another co-worker.  His mother passed this summer and his wife came across all her old hand written recipes, They asked me to make a cookbook (or 15) out of the favorite 20. This has been an enormous amount of work. But now that they are all done I am happy with how they turned out. I hope they are too.
After this many I think I know most of them by heart.
all 15 done and ready to delivery

boxer Rescue Project

Whew, I am finally finished with the Boxer Rescue Project. My Co-workers wife loved them and ended up keeping one set for herself.  The silent auction is next Sunday and they are going to let me know how much money we make for the organization.
The Hex box or Gazebo boxes are they are called in my house are cut by hand using the pattern in the post below.
I cut the sleigh from Winter Woodlands and 6" and hand cut the box to create a 4x6 box.
The front and back panels where 4 " pieces of paper that I curved around the front and back to make the sleigh look more realistic and not so "boxy"
The cards where cut using George and A Childs Year. They are luminary cards. Battery op candles are placed inside and they glow through the vellum.

Thanks for looking

Hexagon (Gazebo) box Template

Sorry about the delay in getting the template for the Hexagon Box (or as it is called in my house The Gazebo Box) I was hoping to get a video done over Thanksgiving but just did not get to it due to several large projects that came up at the last minute.
Again I would like to acknowledge that I go the inspiration for this box from Sarah Youde.  Please click on the link below and watch her video. Top can be a little tricky the first time and this will help.

Thanks for stopping by.
