Family Gift: National Popcorn Day + Retired Lists

04-09-18_header_onstagenovember_eng

Hello, hello lots of stuff going on for us around here sorry been missing in action. April is my normal crazy hectic month worse than Christmas (how is that possible even lol) Hubby and I went to Wisconsin and I attended Onstage were I got the New Catalog!! I had a blast! It was AWESOME!!! I'll have more about that this next week.

After getting back we started working on a lot of projects and they are taking way longer than we thought they would. lol Then I had several teeth break apparently I didn't have a good dentist, that lead me to a new dentist and some very not good news. Ughh I've had to have lots of major work done the past two months which has resulted to lots of pain, not being able to eat much and some pretty nasty migraines thus why I've been missing. Make sure you have a good dentist!!

Ready to Pop Stamp Set
Ready to Pop Stamp Set

  Today's project features 2 of the items on the retiring list the Ready to Pop Photopolymer Stamp Set & Popcorn Box Thinlit. I love these two items and I am sad to see them go since I really thought they were very versatile. I also used them to create one of the gifts I made for our family.

IMG_0068

Did you know there is a National Popcorn Day? I sure did not! lol When I saw it listed, I knew I wanted to do it immediately because I owned this set and die and because I LOVE popcorn. I actually pop it like how my family did when I was a kid on the stove in a pan. I just use Olive Oil instead of vegetable oil sometimes we melt butter and put it on there too. This was one of the family gifts for our year of gifts. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board  Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.

The popcorn bowl came from Target's dollar spot. I walked in and there they were exactly 5 on the shelf left. WOW and too funny, they were $5 a piece but we both thought they were cool and wanted to included them. They were heavy and nice well worth the $5. I found read clear jars from the dollar spot at target and filled them with popcorn seeds. We also add microwave popcorn and some butter sprinkle stuff. I decorated the microwave popcorn with a bell band.

IMG_0066

Here is a top view to see inside the bowl better.

IMG_4538

Using the Ready to Pop Stamp Set I stamped the images then die cut them out using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Popcorn Box Thinlits and Layering Ovals Framelits. Is this not stinkin cute? I then created the popcorn box out of Whisper White card stock again using the Big Shot Die cut Machine and the Popcorn Box Thinlit. I cut strips of Real Red card stock to make it look like the old time popcorn container. I had some left over red straws from the christmas gifts so I added them to the gift to. Overall the gift cost us around $15 per family not to bad if you would like to make this as a gift idea down the road.

Here is one that Stampin' Up! made using the Popcorn Box Thinlit.

See so versatile would work for anything! They used the You've Got This Stamp Set which is another retiring stamp set this year too.

Family Gifts: Easter Bunny

Easter Family Gift

Back with another fun family gift! This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board  Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.

To create this gift I sued the retired Basket Bunch Bundle from last year's Occasions Catalog. I was so sad this didn't get carried over to our main catalog it was so cute and fun to create with! Remember those Mini Egg Cartons? So fun to decorate too! Inside was random different things for each family. For some of my sister in-laws I found these cute egg shaped wine toppers, change for the kids, some Easter candy, Easter theme socks.

IMG_0337

I wrapped the Mini Egg cartons with our retired Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper and Linen Thread. I die cut out the basket in Crumb Cake using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and the Basket Builder Framelits. I stamped the bunnies in Early Espresso on Early Espresso card stock. The second bunny was done in Sweet Sugarplum ink on Sweet Sugarplum card stock. Then I zipped the pieces through the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine with the Basket Builder Framelits. I assembled the cute little basket and add the greeting onto it. Then so I could keep track I wrote family names on the basket. Soo Cute! Then finished with a Pearl Basic Jewel.

IMG_0343

While shopping hubby found some Easter theme pezz dispensers. He grew up with them as a treat so he wanted to include those in the gift for sentimental reason. lol 

IMG_0332

For our nephew I happen to find an Easter bib that was soo cute!! To decorate the inside of the package I used colored tissue and the grass filler you put in Easter Baskets. I honestly have no clue what made me think to do it but I sure thought it made it feel more Easter like! lol

Supplies Used
Stamps: Basket Bunch
Ink: Early Espresso, Sweet Sugarplum
Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper
Acc.: Big Shot, Basket Builder Framelits, Mini Egg Cartons, Linen Thread, Pearl Basic Jewels

Family Gifts: St. Patricks Day

St Patty

Back with another fun family gift! This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board  Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.

St Patricks Day Gifts

St. Patrick's Day has come and gone but some great ideas for you for next year! Each family did get different items but a couple of things were the same for each family. Everyone received the green nail polish I decorated by punching out a circle in Whisper White card stock stamping in Emerald Envy onto the Whisper White circle, gold coins, trivia cards, and St. Patrick's Day drink recipe (found online) printed it out and stamped on it then attached to a piece of Emerald Envy card stock and laminated it, luck of the Irish message (found online), and catch a leprechaun box.

Catch a Leprechaun Box

First Up- How about a Catch a Leprechaun Box! Saw the idea on Pinterest only using a coffee can so I whipped up this baby instead ;)

Directions:

  • Cut 1 piece of Chipboard 4" x 4".
  • Cut 1 piece of Garden Green card stock 5 1/2" x 5". Score 1" around all sides. Cut on scored lines and fold to create like a lid. Stand the Lid up on end and glue the chipboard piece to the bottom inside.
  • I purchased rainbow bags for another project but they were to small so I used them for this. I glued the bag to the chipboard. Then glued a bunch of cotton balls to the chipboard and part ways onto the rainbow bag.
  • Cut a craft stick down and attached to the card stock lid and into the cotton balls. Tied a piece of red ribbon to the stick and attached to the bag.
  • I punched out some Gold Glimmer Paper using our 1" Circle Punch and then glued them randomly all over to entice that little leprechaun ;)

Pot of Gold

Pot of Gold! Who wouldn't want a pot of gold!! lol I used the Silhouette to cut out the pot. Then added some more gold glimmer coins to the front of it.

IMG_0391

I found these St. Patrick's Day Trivia on Pinterest so I printed them off and then stamped a clover on each one in Emerald Envy. The stamp is something I picked up many years ago by another company. Also in the pot of gold was green nail polish, green bracelets,  gold coins and bubbles that I found in green!

Kaitlyns Book

Harmons Book

For the families with younger kids I created coloring books for them. I found free color pages online and man is their a ton of them! Stacked the sheets together and then cut Emerald Envy card stock to create a book cover. I stamped the clover and kiss me in Emerald Envy Ink. I printed out each kid's name onto Whisper White card stock and then stamped the clovers across the top in Emerald Envy. Does that image look familiar to you old timers? Yep that was the clover wheel from way back when. Then I finished by adding gold coins to the covers. So fun and cute!

IMG_0406

I also found a free printable online for learning St. Patrick's Day Images. So I printed them out and laminated them as well for the younger kids.

IMG_0401

So when I purchased the stuff for St. Patrick's Day it was in March...my brother got engaged at the end of Oct. so we had to scramble to come up with something for the future sister in-law. What in the world do you do at the end of Oct as your not going to find anything in this small town for St. Patrick's Day! lol So off to pinterest I go (boy does that save my bacon a lot) and I saw coffee mugs when I searched so light bulb this idea was born. I wish I would have thought of this sooner to do for each family. So we made these using the Silhouette and I'm not gonna lie they turned out pretty awesome! However hubby was ready to drink when we were done. haha I also listed these in my Etsy Store to if you are interested in purchasing a set for next year!

Month Box: January + Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day

Back with another fun family gift! This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board  Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.

January Month

At the beginning of each month; each family has a box to open on the first of the month besides the random days we picked out of each month.  In this month box is a fact sheet we put together about the month it includes the following: the history of the month's name, historical things that happened for the month on select dates, and what the month is know for. (It's pretty cool as I am a huge history buff so I love these sheets we created!) Each month is know for a lot of things so we just picked a few things that we thought would be fun to learn about. January Box features the following; National Blood Donor Month, Hot Tea Month, National Soup Month, Letter Writing Week. For the Hot Tea Month and National Soup Month we included tea packets and a can of soup.

What we did:

Blood Donor Kit

Blood Donor Month: We put together a fun kit with a band aid and cotton balls to use after donating blood. I put it all in a cellophane bag. Along with the kit I created a tag to go onto the little package. I printed them out onto Whisper White card stock and made a little red cross from our Real Red card stock. Then attached with some retired Pop of Pink Washi Tape.

Here is the PDF Tag I created if you would like to make one. Print it out onto card stock.

Download Blood Donor Tag


National Letter Writing Week: This is the 2nd Week of January. I picked this event for sentimental reasons. Growing up as a kid my grandparents would go south to Florida and we would write letters to my grandparents so I wanted the kids to write letters. The fun part about this I didn't stop and think about it but kids don't do this anymore we have email and cellphones for texting. My cousin's kids had never written a letter before so it was a great learning experience for them. It was so awesome to have a hand in teaching them something.


IMG_3758

Here I am reading the letters I received in the mail!! It was so cool to get letters from the kiddos.

National Letter Writing Week

I created a little packet using a Manila Envelope. Inside the envelope was paper, pencil and envelopes. I created a tag to print out and attach to the envelope. I used the Better Together Stamp Set to stamp onto the tag and envelope in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I dressed up the envelope with the Pop of Pink Washi Tape (retired).  I had a lot of fun putting this month box together.

Here is the PDF Tag I created if you would like to make one. Print it out onto card stock.

Better Together

This is a great set and covers a variety of moments and worked perfect for our year gift! You can still purchase this set.

Supplies Used
Stamps: Better Together, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Holly Jolly Greetings
Ink:Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red
Acc.: Pop of Paradise Washi Tape, 3 x 4 Cellophane Bags

Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day

This was one of the Odd Ball Holidays we did. Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day is January 30th. I cracked up when I saw this and I thought the kiddo's would get a laugh out of it and they did.

Here is the PDF Tag I created if you would like to make one. Print it out onto card stock.

Family Gifts: Valentines Day Dragon Fly Dreams

I know Valentine's Day is over but great idea for you to do next year! Get a jump start! This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit my Pinterest Board HERE. Follow me on Pinterest so you don't miss out on anything!

Valentine Gifts

  I need something that didn't include candy (some family member's don't eat candy), would work for everyone and all ages (to make it easier on me). I had seen on pinterest ages ago paper firecrackers that someone had made, inside where rolos so I thought that idea would be perfect for all the males but instead of rolos I did a roll of pennies! The chapstick holder idea I saw something similar on a blog years ago somewhere and had saved it to my idea folder. Which Stampin' Up! obliged me by coming out with a bumble bee and thinlit. I swear they were reading my mind when I was planning out the year gifts! lol Then we printed out the fact sheet for Valentine's Day.

IMG_0158

The kids loved them! It's a very inexpensive gift too! I had a little under a $1 into this gift.

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • You will need a roll of pennies.  Cut a piece of Real Red card stock big enough to fit around a roll of pennies and to over lap the end.
  • Punch out a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper with the 3/4" Circle Punch.
  • Cut a piece of Black Pipe Cleaner and wrap around a pen or pencil to curl it.
  • Punch a hole through the Gold Glimmer Circle and run the piece of Black Pipe Cleaner through it. Then attach to the roll of pennies with a Glue Dot.

Supplies:
Paper: Gold Glimmer, Real Red
Acc.: 3/4" Circle Punch, Paper-Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat
Misc: roll of pennies, black pipe cleaner

My next project used the following items.

Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set

This is the Dragonfly Dreams Photopolymer Stamp Set item #142924. This came out last year and when I saw this I was soo excited as I love Dragonfly's! It is a gorgeous set!!

Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits

What makes this set even more awesome the matching Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits item #142749!! I LOVE these!!

IMG_0155

We have lots of chap-stick lovers in our family so I thought this idea would be perfect! I thought the Burt's Bee Chap-Stick was perfect for this little gift! lol

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock the exact width of the length of the chap-stick you purchase.
  • Take the bumblee bee image from Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set; ink it in Daffodil Delight and stamp onto the Whisper White card stock.
  • Zip a piece of Basic Black card stock through the Big Shot with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits die cutting it out. Tip use the Big Shot Die Brush to remove all the little pieces. Then glue over the stamped bumble bee. So cute!
  • Take the stamp from Tin of Cards Stamp Set (retired) ink it in Tuxedo Black and stamp below the bumble bee.
  • Ink the stamp from Sealed With Love Stamp Set (retired) in Real Red and stamp below the greeting.
  • Cut a piece of Real Red card stock a little bit bigger than the Whisper White card stock.
  • Glue the Whisper White and Real Red card stock together.
  • Punch 4 holes using the 1/8 handheld Circle Punch through the layers.
  • Attach the chap-stick to the tag with Solid Whisper White Baker's Twine.
  • To finish add a heart to the bumble bee from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Supplies Used
Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams, Sealed With Love, Tin of Cards
Ink: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red
Acc.: Big Shot, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Solid Whisper White Baker's Twine, Metallic Enamel Shapes, 1/8 Handheld Circle Punch, Big Shot Die Brush

Sealed With Love Bundle

I had some fun Valentine Treat Bags that I got from Target's Dollar Spot. Everything was packaged into the bag and then I created a tag for the outside using the Sealed With Love Bundle that has since retired. I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock. Stamped the greeting in Old Olive and the hearts in Calypso Coral. I die cut out a piece of Real Red card stock using the Big Shot. I attached to the bag with a piece of sending love ribbons (retired).

Family Gifts: Super Bowl Sunday + Prize Winners

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! This year the Super Bowl is in our state and sadly I am not going to be at it nor our Vikings Team :( But I have an awesome Super Bowl Party Gift idea for you all! This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit my Pinterest Board HERE.

Super Bowl

This package contained so many fun things and was a blast to make!

  1. I found a Football Bingo Game On-line. I laminated it so Erasable Markers could be used over and over on it, so it could be used year after year. Here is the Bingo Game I found: Download Football-bingo-1-8
  2. When researching about the Super Bowl I found a Trivia Fact sheet that I thought was really interesting and thought the die hard sports fans in our family would like it. This is the website I found them on HERE. You can't print them so you will have to save as an image to your computer and then  print them out. The answers are right below each card.
  3. I picked up craft wood sticks at walmart and using my silhouette cut out the football shapes out of card stock and attached to the sticks. I did them in the Viking Colors.
  4. The cups we found at the Party Store they have a section with football theme items. We put the markers, little footballs, and little decorative sticks into the cups.
  5. I made a little football box that would hold juice boxes for the kids. I will have a video on how to make the box soon on my blog.

Here are some close ups.

IMG_0183

The ribbon on the sticks is actually ribbon from my grandma's stash she was big into crafts so it had some nostalgia to it giving it to her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

IMG_0178

The little football box. I used White Washi Tape on it.

IMG_0187

To package the gift I recycled brown bags and used some white washi tape to decorate like a football too. lol

The second gift I have to share was for Groundhogs Day we kept this one pretty simple.

IMG_0151

Do you remember this image I shared long ago for our daily journal project? I love this cute image so much I printed it off onto card stock and turned it into a card for groundhog day! Then we printed out the history about groundhogs day. Hubby and I both learned some things we did not know.

Christmas Eve Box

How about an AMAZING christmas eve box!! I saw this idea on Pinterest and really wanted to do it! I want one of these!! lol Each family received a Christmas Eve Box of goodies. The above pictures is pictures of the 4 Gifts boxes as we did each layer in the box. The boxes over all had the same items with the exception of a few items due to the kids ages, allergies, food was different for those that don't do candy and etc. Then box for the family with the new born I found a really cute santa outfit to put in it. (Crossed my fingers it would fit too when it came time to open this gift). lol We also only did stockings for the kids I found some cute one's at Hobby Lobby. The two siblings that had no kids we did a few different gifts in their boxes to suit them more.

  • Santa Plate: Created by us with the Silhouette. We had quite the time creating them. The plates we bought the stupid stuff started chipping off so we had to scramble to find 5 red plates of course Dec. 11 good luck with that around here. Snort Took 3 days to make them because the plates started chipping, and we kept running out of stuff. lol Some of the gifts we wrote messages on the back. Yep the plates we put it on upside down but didn't realize it till we were done with all 4. ROFL My advice do them at least a month ahead. lol
  • Milk Bottles: We were going to make them but couldn't find enough bottles. While shopping for last minute stuff walmart of all places had the milk for santa. ROFL

Day 21 Elf Day

#21 Elf Day

This was one of my favorite days! Not only was it a blast to put together but I love elves. lol The elf shoes were made using the silhouette. We cut them out in Lucky Limeade and Real Red card stock. On the ends some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper, Bells and Ribbon. Since these where made for the coming year at the time I couldn't put food in them instead we did mini flash lights.

Day 22 O Christmas Tree

#22 O Christmas Tree

Of course there HAD to be a day with a tree and since we couldn't do the real deal we made one with a twist. lol I've seen little trees stuck in the wooden spool and I've been wanting to make one for years finally did. Haha I wrapped the wooden spool in some retired Stampin' Up! DSP. We found little trees and hot glued them into the wooden spool. Then printed off O Christmas Tree to go with it.

Day 17 Game Day/Farkle

#17 Game Day Farkle

How about a handmade game of Farkle? This idea was born in Target in the game isle. lol I saw the game Farkle in round container and thought hmmm. To create this you will need a Silhouette and green vinyl. I did green vinyl to stick with the christmas theme. Some sort of tin. I got these years ago some place and finally used them! Ha White small note pad and green pen came from Amazon. The dice I found at the dollar store. Directions typed up and then laminated them. Here is some close ups.

17 Tag

Day 17 Christmas Tag I used the Big Shot and retired Merry Tags Framelits to die cut out the Real Red card stock and retired Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper. I used the retired 25 Days stamp set to ink 17 in Real Red ink onto Whisper White card stock. I punched out the number using the 3/4 Circle Punch.

IMG_0457

Card that went into the gift I used Pool Party and Whisper White card stock. The DSP was something left over in my stash. Then I added the 17 to it the same way as the tag above. We also picked up penguin theme gifts so we put the farkle game in with it. The gifts varied from family due to the kids ages. Some of the gifts came from a craft store, dollar store, target, target $1 spot. We had a new born basically so that was really hard to do stuff for him but I stumbled upon a really cute outfit with a penguin on it. Couldn't believe I just randomly found that by chance. lol

Day 18 Gingerbread House

#18 Gingerbread House

Wouldn't be christmas without the gingerbread house! If you wait till towards the end of December you can actually get these so they are good through the following December. Just a FYI since we did the gift a year ahead. I didn't think anyone would actually eat them but wanted to be safe just in case. lol You can still purchase the Cookie Cutter Stamp Set and Cookie Cutter Punch!!!

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • I decorated the gingerbread box with some misc gingerbread dsp I had in my stash. Then I used the stamp from Cookie Cutter Stamp Set; inked in Early Espresso and stamped onto Whisper White card stock. I punched it out using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.
  • I colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Real Red Sharpie marker and added them to the gingerbread man.
  • The gift tag I used scraps from my stash of DSP and used the number stamp from retired 25 Days Stamp Set. Inked in Old Olive and stamped onto Whisper White card stock. Then cut it out and attached with a dimensional. The top of the tag I punched a hole and tied some ribbon through it from my stash.
  • The card I printed the saying onto Whisper White card stock, then decorated with the Candy Cane Lane DSP. Then stamped 18 again in Old Olive.

Supplies Used
Stamps: Cookie Cutter Christmas, 25 Days
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso
Paper: Whisper White, Candy Cane Lane DSP

Day 19: A Christmas Carol

#19 A Christmas Carol

When I was trying to figure out what to do for day 19 I was aimlessly wondering a store on the end cap was a book of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol. Score!! This is one of my favorites for christmas and one I never get tired of. So the idea was born to make a craft "chain" to go with the book. lol I made 4 of these star chains. When they were done I had made a total of 160 stars.

IMG_0507

Here is the card and tag we created.

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Die cut out a lot of stars using the Big Shot and Star Framelits. I used some misc dsp from my stock pile, you'll want several different patterns of dsp. Each star took a total of 4 Stars for the front and back in 2 different sizes.
  • Die cut out lots of circles using the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits. I die cut them out of Silver Glimmer Paper to go with the Silver Bells. You need 2 circles per star.
  • Assemble each side of the star but don't glue the two halves together. (Learn from my mistake lol) I did so then I had to try to thread the hemp twine through and that really slowed me down.
  • You will need a heavy hemp for this project. Lay your stars out on a table (however many you want). Then lay your bells  out between the stars this will give you an idea how long to cut your hemp.
  • Then thread your bells onto the hemp. Place the hemp out across the stars and slide the bells into place.
  • Go through and attach dimensionals to the stars.
  • Attach the other half of the star and your star chain is complete.
  • Decorate the card with dsp and some diecut stars. I stamped the number from retired 25 Days Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.
  • The gift tag was created out of leftover scraps of dsp and Whisper White card stock. I stamped the number from retired 25 Days Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: 25 Days
Ink: Real Red
Paper: Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Acc.: Big Shot, Stars Framelits, Layering Circle Framelits, 1/8 Handheld Punch, Heavy Hemp, Silver Bells

Day 20 Santa Pinball

#20 Santa Pinball

Wouldn't be Christmas without Santa Pinball! lol Hubby found these and wanted to put them in the gift. He found them at Walmart.
The card we printed our saying on Whisper White card stock. Stamped the 20 from retired 25 Days Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I stamped the "greetings from the northpole" from retired Greetings from Santa Stamp Set (I thought that was fitting for a santa gift lol) in Real Red. Then stamped the stars in Old Olive. The gift tag was created using the Banner Triple Punch on a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper. Then I added some misc scraps of dsp from the left overs. I stamped the 20 onto Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. Add a Rhinestone I colored and some misc ribbons  I had.

Supplies Used
Stamp: 25 Days, Greetings from Santa
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
Paper: Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper
Acc. Banner Triple Punch, 1/8 Handheld Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Rhinestones
