Feeling Wishy Washy

When I started working on a project today, I knew I wanted to use my trio of mouse stamps along with the trio of word stamps "Be Happy", "Have Fun" and "Laugh Out Loud". I also knew I wanted to punch out circles and glue them onto an acetate backing so they would look like they're floating in air. I just couldn't decide on a project...first I did a gift box/container:


But, that turned out a little too big...I wouldn't be able to scan the pattern on my scanner...so then I thought...maybe a smaller box with the punch outs going around the container instead of up one side:



oooh...maybe I could use it as a candle holder!!! (Please use with battery operated candles ONLY!!!). If you want the pattern for this box...click here. Uhhh...maybe gift cards!!!







In the end, I couldn't decide...so I just posted all of them!!

Stamps used: #1101 (Mouse on Balloon), #1102 (Mouse With Rose), #1103 (Happy Mouse), #5048 (Be Happy), #5049 (Have Fun), #5055 (Laugh Out Loud) and #5030 (Scattered Flowers). Thanks for stopping by!!!

Hi Jean! OMG...I totally love ALL of the ideas you posted. Did you put the white circle behind the acetate and the mouse and words in front of it? It really looks like they're floating! TFS the template for the candle holder!!

Hey, that's so funny cause the make & take I did last Saturday with your stamps was with acetate. I'll post it today so you can see it.
