MOSAIC MOOD TEA BAG HOLDER AND A TAG!

I have 2 projects to share with you today.  I made them a few weeks ago but just getting to show you now.

I have these cute little Tea Bag Holders.  I made them up to send out with some of the Annual Catalogues.  These were made with the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The paper is so shiny.  It is gorgeous really and I think they turned out ok with it.

Nothing like pouring over the new catalogue with a cup of tea in hand. 😉

The sentiment is from the Delightful Day stamp set.  It is stamped on Mint Macaron and punched with the Timeless Label Punch.  Then backed on a white circle and the ring shape from the Stitched Labels Dies.

The little holders were made using the Envelope Punch Board.  I know it is retired but I love this little tool for making quick envelopes. The Tea Bag Holder is a Pootles one and you can find it -> HERE.

With some of the scraps from these little Treat Holders I made up a couple of tags.  These were for the Lucky Door Prizes for my launch.

I used the Delightful Day stamp set again too and the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. It’s so easy to make quick tags with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.

Hope you like them.

Thanks for visiting,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #73 – DAISY LANE TEA BOX!

I have a sweet little Daisy Box for you for Wednesday’s WOW! #73.  You could use this to gift Tea Bags or some small chocolates.  I have the Tutorial below.

It doesn’t take long at all to make.  I used the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper for the strip around it.  The daisies were stamped from the Daisy Lane set and punched with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch.  I did 2 of each and layered them together.  The leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch.  If you check the leaves closer I scored along the centre and then curled them up a little.  This gives them a little dimension.

Here is how to make your Box.

Tea Bag Box

NB: Measurements are in both Metric and Imperial.  (apologies in advance for the 16th” measures).

Cut card to 19cm x 14cm (7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″).

Score card at 8cm and 11cm on the 19cm side . (On the 7 1/2″  side score at 3 1/8″ and 4 5/16″)

Score card at 3cm and 11cm on the 14cm side. (On the 5 1/2″ side score at 1 3/16″ and 4 5/16)

Cut Designer Series Paper piece at 6cm x 28cm (2 3/8″ x 11″).

To assemble the box.  Fold and score on all the lines.  Cut up on the small score lines on the long sides of the card.  See below.

Assemble the box by firstly adding adhesive to the 2 small tabs placing it on the outside of the tab. Fold up and bring one of the side panels over to adhere on to the tab.  Do this on both sides of the box.  Add adhesive along the outside of this long tab and then adhere the other long tab down on to this. This forms your box.

Place adhesive, (I use Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive) along the back of the paper strip and wrap around the box and adhere down. Decorate as you like.

***

Hopefully that makes sense.  I was a little time pressed today to get the full photos together.  If you need more information, drop me a comment and if you would like a video then let me know.

Enjoy making the box.

BOTANICAL BUTTERFLIES WEEK BONUS – W CARD!

I have a bonus project to share with you today for Botanical Butterflies week.  It’s a ‘W’ card.  I have seen a few of them around and was wanting to try one.  We made this one at our team meeting on Wednesday night and I thought it was good timing. So you get a bonus project.

Don’t look closely.  It was made in a rush at the meeting.  There are lots of parts to this card but it will give you an idea.  And can’t beat those pretty butterflies from the gorgeous Botanical Butterflies paper.

This is the card closed.  Tied up with some of the lovely soft Lemon Lime Twist Organdy ribbon.  The sentiment is from Incredible Like You and the paper on the front is from the Gingham Gala Paper. 

This is the inside of the card with more pretty butterflies.

I won’t give you the details of how to make one as you can check it out for yourself.  The card was CASED from Jan B cards.  HERE is the link to her Youtube video.  It’s long one.  It goes for 47 minutes so be prepared with a drink in hand and take notes.  The card is very easy though once all the cutting is done and you can decorate it anyway you like.

What could you do inside? Some stamped and cut images, a baby card, maybe a 4 letter name. Endless ideas to work with.

Have fun with it.

I hope you like the Botanical Butterflies week.  The ideas I have shared could work with any paper.  This gorgeous paper is Free though.  Can’t beat that. 

This is a Sale-A-Bration choice for orders over $90.  You could choose the gorgeous Painted Seasons paper or any of the other choices.  You only have one week left so get on it.

In Australia? You can order in my store -> HERE.  

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #61 – BOTANICAL BUTTERFLIES GIFT BAG!

Wednesday’s WOW! #61.  I have something special today.  I hope you like it.  I am featuring the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper all week.  Of course you can use any paper for these projects but how pretty is this paper – and bonus because it is free!

Today I want to show you this cutie Butterfly bag.  I have the tutorial below for you.

For the cute tag above I punched a butterfly from a scrap piece of the paper using the Butterfly Duet Punch. I used the Detailed Trio Punch on the white tag. The sentiment is from Beauty Abounds.

Here is the side view.

This is such an easy Gift Bag to make and it only uses 1/2 sheet of the Designer Series Paper.  You can make a few in no time.

BUTTERFLY GIFT BAG

METRIC MEASUREMENTS:

30.5cm x 15cm.

Score on the long side at 12cm, 14.5cm, 26.5cm and 29cm.

Score on the short side at 2.5cm and 12.5cm.

 

IMPERIAL MEASUREMENTS:

12” x 6”.

Score on the long side at 4 ¾”, 5 ¾”, 10 ½”, and 11 ½”

Score on the short side at 1” and 5”.

 

With the paper in landscape orientation, cut up on the scored lines along the bottom up to the score line.  Angle the cuts if you prefer so the tabs will sit better when they are folded up.

Fold on all the score lines.  On the top score lines fold the paper forward to show the other side of the paper.  Adhere this down on to the front.  See the photo to show it clearer.

Place adhesive on the narrow side tab and fold the paper to form a box shape.  Adhere this narrow tab to join the other side.  Place adhesive to the bottom small tabs.  Fold up and then adhere the long tabs at the bottom to form the box.

HANDLES:

Card strip – 2 @ 1.2cm x 14.8cm.

2 @ ½” x 6”

For the handles: Firstly, take a strip and run it up and down on the edge of the table.  This helps curve the card and breaks down the tissue a little.

Place adhesive on each end of one strip, Position one end inside the bag at the top.  Gently curve the strip and adhere the other end to the inside of the bag.  Repeat the same for the second strip on the other side.

———-

Have fun creating them,

Jenny

CRAFT ALIVE TREATS!

Last post I showed you some photos of Craft Alive the show we attended a few weeks ago.  If you missed that post with some of the highlights then head back a post.

Today I want to show you some little treats I created.

First off I made these little Easel calendars for the 3 other ladies on our show team.  I invited each of them on this crazy ride with me and wanted to give them a gift.  I made this for their little gift pack to say Thank You to them.

These were so easy to make.  Without giving you specific measurements I will tell you how they are made so they can work for metric or imperial measurements.

MAKE YOUR OWN EASEL CALENDARS

Take a sheet of card and cut it in half vertically.  Put one half aside. With the other length you have, score the piece in half. Then score one of the sections in half again.  Then fold on the score lines.  Fold it firstly in at the half way line, then fold the other score line inwards. The larger section is the base part.  The smaller equal sections are folded.  Does that make sense?

You will also need an additional card piece that can be adhered on to the front.  This piece is the same width as the card and you can make it any height.  I made it the same height as the base length.  In other words, the other piece of cardstock you put aside at the beginning, cut that in half and it will be the right length.  I hope that all makes sense.  Really it is the idea of it.  The actual measurements are entirely up to you.  Decorate as you like.  I had pieces of the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper that I decorated the front with and a butterfly from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

I also needed to make some tags up for the prize gifts.  Stampin’ Up! were very generous in donating a box full of retired products.  We made up so many prize packs and gave away several per day.

I have one of each colour of the tags I made using the lovely Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and the Amazing Life stamp set.

I hope you like these.  I think everyone who received one loved the tag…. or maybe it was all the lovely Stampin’ Up! products they received.  They were very excited anyway.

Thanks for visiting me again today,

Jenny

BIRTHDAY CHEER EASEL CARD!

I held a Birthday Cheer class on the weekend.  It was showcasing the great Birthday Cheer Bundle from the Occasions Catalogue and making some fun cards with it.  I don’t often share my class cards with you but I thought I would share with you about this.

One of the cards I made was an Easel card.  This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.

This first card was the card I made to share at the class. Everyone thought it was nice.  It was using the gorgeous Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets from Sale-A-Bration. (On a side note did you know that this foil is nearly sold out?? You might want to grab this as your next free choice for Sale-A-Bration). It is so shiny.

The single cupcake is stamped in Stazon and watercoloured with the inkpads. There is a die to cut it too.

The Easel card is very easy to make.

To make one: Take a standard sheet of card. Cut it in half vertically. Take one of those halves and score it in half and then score one of those sections in half again.  Then fold up to create an easel.

With any type of Easel card you need something on the base as a stopper to hold up the Easel.  For this one I used the Oval sentiment piece.

While I made this card and used this for the class I had a different idea in my head but it wasn’t working before the class.

During the class when I was demonstrating this I played around with it and created this version below.  Everyone loved this idea even more and made this one instead for their card.  So I thought you might like to see it then.

I created the Easel card the same with the cutting and scoring.  This time though I rearranged the pieces.  So simple really but so much more effective.  Adhere your diecut cupcake border behind the Mint Marcaron card piece.  For the stopper on this I used the cupcake.

Doesn’t that create a bit more of a WOW??

Why not create your own.

WELL WRITTEN FRAMELITS MAKES QUICK TAGS!

I needed to make some quick tags last week.  There was not a lot of time before I had to get them out in the post.  What to do??? …

I found the Well Written Framelits Dies that I had recently ordered.  Quick tags in minutes with these little beauties.

The white card measures approximately 5cm x 10.5cm (2″x 4″).  I punched the end with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and added a small strip of the Gingham Gala paper stack.  Using the Framelits I cut the “hooray”in black and the little flower stem in Lemon Lime Twist and a flower in Calypso Coral.  Finished off with a little ribbon from the Organdy Ribbon Combo pack. Very quick and easy to put together.

The Well Written Framelits are very useful.  They are $70 AUS in store -> HERE.

You can use them on their own or team them with the Well Said stamp set as a bundle. $132.25 AUS Grab the bundle in store -> HERE. 

You can make these quick tags for any occasion.  Dress them up more if you like.

GINGHAM TEA BAG TREAT HOLDER!

I had my Summer Sizzler Catalogue Launch on this weekend for the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.  It was a fun time sharing lots of the gorgeous new products and samples with them.

I will share some of the cards I have made over the next couple of weeks.  Today I thought I would share with you the little Treat Holders I made for everyone who came to Thank them for coming.

These cute little Treat Holders are made using the new Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack.  The paper is 6″x6″ (15.2cmx15.2cm) and are just the right size for these.  I made them in some of the different colours.  I took a photo of 3 of the different colour ones.  I have also used the lovely Organdy Ribbon that is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration. I will tell you how to make them below.

To decorate the front of them I stamped one of the butterfly stamps from Butterfly Gala set using Black Memento ink and these were then coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  Using the Butterfly punch makes life a lot easier.  No fussy cutting them. 🙂 The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set.  I stamped the “THANKS” on to Whisper White and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.  I then could trim off each end. I find this a much easier way of doing it.

To make the Treat Holders

1. Take your 15.2cm x15.2cm (6″x6″) piece of paper.  I have used the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack.

Line the left hand edge of the paper on the 6.7cm (2 5/8″) mark on the Envelope Punch Board.

Punch the paper and score on the score grid of the Punch Board.

2. Turn the paper 90′.  Line up the little score tab on the previous score line.  Punch and score.

Turn the paper another 90′.  Line the tab mark on the score line, punch and score.  Turn again and repeat.

3. Round the corners using the corner rounder on the punch board.  Fold on the score lines. Decide which side you want showing on the outside, place that side facing down when folding.

NB: In the photo below I hadn’t turned it over at this point.

Fold up the bottom tab.  Place adhesive on the 2 outside edges of this tab. I used Snail adhesive.  Fold in one side tab and adhere down. Before folding in the other side tab place adhesive on the inside bottom edge of this tab.  Fold over and adhere down.

Decorate as you like. To add ribbon, punch a hole in the top tab and thread through your ribbon.

This is a great size for a Tea Bag packet, chocolate, Gift card or other treat.

Enjoy.

Jenny
