SUper Friends in 3D -- November Swap

At the gathering of my SUper Friends demonstrator group this month, our swap challenge was to create something 3D for fall or the holidays.  I took some photos of all the projects set out before we swapped, though apologies because the lighting wasn't great:

I loved how Connie M. arranged her beautifully decorated tea lights into a tree shape:

And, they are just as beautiful individually -- here's a better photo so you can see the details:

Connie used the Wondrous Wreath set and a bit of washi tape and gold cording trim.  I love how she added sparkle to the holly berries as well with some Dazzling Details.

Connie S. created this fabulous piece of framed art:

Her beautifully colored leaf embellishments were created using the Vintage Leaves stamps and Leaflets framelits, and the fall image below the poem is from the Happy Scenes stamp set.

Jana's creation was this marvelously festive goodie box, created with the Cutie Pie thinlets out of the thick Whisper White card stock, and decorated with a Santa from the Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper, a Snowflake Element with a Winter Wonderland Embellishment in the center, and tied with White Glitter Ribbon and Pom Pom trim:

 Jana and I apparently were on the same wavelength when creating our swaps, because I also decided to create a tree-shaped goodie box out of the Cutie Pie Thinlets.  Here's mine:

I cut a window out of the front of the box using one of the Perfect Pines Framelits and added some vellum, stamped with the lights image from Peaceful Pines, before assembling the box.  The Lost Lagoon outline on the front of the box was created by carefully cutting around the impression created in the paper by the die when the tree was cut out of the center.  I stamped the box with an image from Gorgeous Grunge in Whisper White ink and then the small snowflake from Peaceful Pines in Lost Lagoon.

After the candy inside the box is eaten, a flameless tea light can be inserted, and it will become a luminary!  

Here's the tag I created from the Lost Lagoon tree die cuts:

Agnes also created a fun treat box, though used the Fry Box for hers.  She filled it with tea and lip balm, making a perfect stocking stuffer (or actually a sweet and thoughtful gift most any time of year)! 

Fanny dressed up the Purse die with some punch art to create this adorable Santa treat holder:

Margery created this gorgeous treat holder, using the Home for Christmas paper, some Cucumber Crush lace, the Peaceful Pines bundle for a little peek a boo tag (you can see the candy under it), and the little tree cut outs at the top are made with a die from the Square Pillow Box Thinlets set:

Nancy used the Sleigh Ride edgelits and Gently Falling Embossing Folder to create this fabulous ornament:

The other side is beautifully decorated as well:

I really love all these projects!  How about you?

I'm so thankful to get to swap with these talented ladies!!!  Would love to have you join our group, too -- ask me how!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
