NEW RELEASE!

Welcome to the Creations by AR New Release Blog Hop!
Want a chance to win one of these new templates? 


ONCE UPON A TIME.... as a child, I loved stories that began with those words and often, there would be a castle in the story. Here's my version of a castle. It's actually a gift box with three compartments: one tall tower box in the middle and two open compartments on each side. The sides can hold many things like crayons, sweets, trinkets, etc. The tower box is large enough to hold 3" x 3" note cards or a small gift.  As you can see in the photo below, the roof of the tower opens and is kept closed by tying a string or ribbon through the holes. The castle might look complicated, but once all the pieces are cut, it takes just minutes to put together!


What's a castle without a royal carriage? This ONCE UPON A CARRIAGE is so easy to make even if you don't have a cutting machine! It makes a great favor box and can be designed for a knight or for a princess!

With the school year starting again, I couldn't resist making hi-top and low-top sneakers. Put some goodies inside these SNEAKIES to hand out as party favors or do what my sister is planning to do: make these out of fabric for her granddaughter's dolls!

How do you qualify for a chance to win one of these new templates?
Leave a comment here and continue to visit each of the other AR Girls to see what they have created and leave them a comment as well. Each designer will give away one free template, so you'll have plenty of chances to win! Those leaving comments during the first 24 hours (beginning Aug 30 at 4:00 am Pacific Time) will be eligible.  Winners will be announced by each designer on their blogs this Thursday, Sept. 1st.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Now....

LET'S GET HOPPIN'

Now I'm off to see what the design team whipped up with your new templates.
