3D projects, Christmas, Classes, Stampin' Up!

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE TAGS!

Over the weekend I had my last class for the year.  It’s been a fun year of creating, sharing and laughs.  For our last class we made a Christmas box and 6 tags.  I thought we would have a closer look at the tags.

We made 2 of each of these tags using the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  They were certainly loved by everyone and I think they will grace many presents this Christmas.

What else did we use?

Itty Bitty Christmas, Christmas Gleaming Stamp set, Snow Globe Scenes Dies, Rectangles Stitched Dies, Stitched Shapes Dies, Detailed Trio Punch, Banner Triple Punch, Delightful Tag Topper Punch, Sprig Punch.

Hope they might inspire you with your Christmas tags.

The Christmastime is Here Suite of products are still available.  I would grab that paper. It is great not just for Christmas.

Have a great week,

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

FINALLY CATALOGUE SHOWCASE MAKES!

Last weekend I had my Catalogue Showcase. Lots of fun, creating and pouring over the new catalogue and new colours.  I have been wanting to share the projects we made all week but I wanted to finish with the Delightfully Detailed projects first. SO, today I can share them.

We looked at the new catalogue and colours.  I shared an overview in this post -> HERE.

To try the new colours everyone got to make a bookmark using the Waterfront set.

On the top they could use the Scallop Tag Topper Punch or the new Detailed Trio Punch.  We used some of the new Black Cord to tie it off.

For the card we used the fantastic new Stitched Labels Framelits.  I have mentioned these previously.  These are a must have I think.  We used the Love What You Do stamp set and some of the gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  A little addition with the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls finished the card off.  The sentiment for this is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  I think everyone was in love by the end of the session. 🙂

I had mentioned the Stitched Labels Framelits back in this post -> HERE.  I didn’t share this chart I had made at the time to show how each of the Framelits cut.  You might like to see it.

These are the Framelits

Hope your weekend is going well.  It is blowing a gale here so hopefully I won’t get blown away. 😉

Visit again soon,
