Creative Cuts & More challenged the Design Team to
bring awareness to our readers through our crafts....
ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?


First, I want to showcase the Awareness Window Card from Creative Cuts & More. It is cut from Curious Metallic Cardstock: Cryogen White. This cardstock has a shimmering surface and a luminescent sheen of metal. It is so subtle, yet magical, in this white color.

You can even stamp on it. I used Staz-on black ink. The stamp is from Midnight Feast from Waltzingmouse stamps. I thought it wouldn't hurt to tell a bit of truth about how most people feel about cancer. Cancer BITES!

Here's a sweet, shimmering 2-piece gift set filled with Smarties candies.

The inside of the card is made up of a few scrap papers from Papertrey Ink. I stitched the pattern paper for a nice finished look. Really, I just am enjoying using my sewing machine!
Until the bobbin breaks.... I won't know what to do after that! ;)

Now for the Awareness Window Square Box...

You'd think this box was filled with buttons. Oh no, not from me, I am not giving up any buttons, I don't care how bad it bites. ;)

Here is how I did it... I cut some paper to fit inside the lid of the box (4.25 x 4.25) and ran it though my Xyron adding adhesive to one side. I then arranged the buttons UPSIDE DOWN in the shape of the ribbon and picked them up using the adhesive sheet I just made. Then, I simply attached it to the inside of the lid (you know, the whole sheet was sticky, too easy!!). Cool right?

Like the song goes . . .  Love STINKS! Maybe someone will make a song out of this Cancer BITES phrase. Cancer BITES, so bite back!   What do you think?    Is it a hit?    Maybe a one hit wonder, at least?!

I also cut a square of paper to fit the bottom of the box and stitched along the edges before adhering it to the bottom of the box.

Just a little ribbon along the box's edge and a simple bow, too easy right!?
You can get the awareness ribbon window shape in an album cover as well.
Check it out, HERE.
