DRESS UP YOUR CARDS WITH AN ENVELOPE SATCHEL!

I had a thought the other day to make a fancy little SATCHEL ENVELOPE BAG for a special card.  Why give it in a boring white envelope!  So here it is.

Here it is with the card.  I actually made the card a few weeks ago.

This is so easy to make.  The longest part is the decorating.  I will show you how.

CREATE YOUR OWN ENVELOPE SATCHEL

NB: Check the pattern on the piece of Designer Series Paper you use.  When you fold it half the pattern at the back will be upside down.  You want an all-over pattern.

1. Cut your piece of 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper in half vertically. I used the Share What You Love Specialty DSP.

2. Score it on the short side at 1.2cm (1/2″).  Turn your piece 180″ score it at 1.2cm (1/2″).  You should have 2 score lines running down each long side.

3. Turn your piece 90′  Score it at half way – 15.2cm (6″).  Fold on the scored lines.

4. Cut up on each of the score lines in the lower half of the section and the cut these off.  Check the photo below.

5. Add adhesive to the outside of the long tabs. Fold up the bottom piece and carefully adhere the two sides together lining them up on the edges.

There is your satchel already.

To decorate:

Cut a strip of co-ordinating card about 2 cm wide (3/4″).  This is the length of a full sheet of card.  Score one end at 1.2cm (1/2″).  Add adhesive to the back of this short end.  Fold around the back of the satchel at the top.  Add adhesive to the rest of the strip on the back of it and adhere this along the top edge going right across the front around to the back on the other side. Trim off any over-hang if need be.

For the handles cut a strip the length of a sheet of card and at approximately 1.2cm (1/2″) wide.  Cut the strip in half.  Firstly, to help the strip curve gently run it back and forth along the edge of the desk top or similar.  Add adhesive to the ends of each strip on the back of it.  Place one end in position on the front of the bag. Gently curve the strip and adhere the other end on to the front.  Repeat with the other strip for the back.

To finish, cut 2 ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Cut them both in half.  Adhere these over the ends of the strip on the front and the back.  Add pearls to finish if you like.

—–

I made a more masculine version.  Not sure of this one but what do you think?

This one is made from the Nature’s Poem DSP.  I added the strip across the top edge.  Instead of adding handles I added a ‘V’ Shape strip and added some gems to the front.  Is it “manly” enough? Maybe I should make it  more of a tie shape.

EDITED TO ADD: I have been pondering on this last project for the past few days.  I wasn’t particularly happy with it.  So today I changed things up a bit and thought I would show you. I am still not sure about it but I think it is a bit better. It’s not any worse anyway. 🙂

OK, I hope you like these dressed up satchels for your cards.  Do you think you would make them?  You could easily add a Gift Card in it and even maybe a small bar of chocolate.

Have a great day.  See you again soon,

Jenny

TEAM SHOEBOX SWAP – DAY 4!

OK, Today is my last sharing from our recent Team stamp day with Shoebox Swap cards.  I have a few various ones for you.

This one below is using that gorgeous Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper.  I have shown lots of cards using this paper recently.  For this card you don’t need much more than backing a section of the paper on to a strip of black card and adhering it to your white base card.  It makes it look so elegant don’t you think??  I think from memory the sentiment banner is a strip of white card and using the small circle punch to notch out each corner.

This next one is a fun fold.  Adhere a strip of the lovely paper, this one is the Nature’s Poem DSP, down the left hand side of the front of your card.  Punch a slit using the Classic Label Punch on the side of the card front.  You need to punch it twice to be sure that the dragonfly fits through. Punch it once near the top, then slide it down a little bit and line it up with the previous punch and punch it again.  A dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits was cut from Vellum and also from Cajun Craze.

This is the inside of the card.  The sentiments are from Better Together set.  It’s a cool card.

This card uses the lovely Love What You Do set, the Share What You Love paper and the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder.

This is a cute little treat bag below.  It is very quick to make up.  This is based on Pootles bag -> HERE.

I hope you have so enjoyed these little projects from our team day.  We are getting ready for another get together in the next few weeks.  Hopefully I don’t take as long to share those with you. 😉

Hope your weekend is going awesomely.

EASTER TREAT BAG FOR STAMPIN’ DREAMS BLOG HOP!

This month’s Theme for the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop is … Easter.  You might have just come from Angela’s Blog -> HERE or starting at my blog here either way enjoy the hop.

Easter time is fast approaching!  I have an Easter Treat Bag to share with you.

THE TREAT BAG

I have made the treat bag using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set from Thick Whisper White card.  It would be more sturdier than regular white card.  You want it strong to hold that chocolate  in. 🙂  There are a couple of modifications to the bag to make it wider to hold the chocolate bar.  I will outline these changes below for you.

Cut your Treat Bag out with the Thinlits from cardstock.  Emboss the card pieces with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.  Adhere the 2 pieces of the diecut bag together as you would usually to have one long card piece. Don’t adhere together to form the bag as yet.

Due to the thickness of the chocolate bar you will need to add an additional piece to your bottom tab. Cut a strip of white card measuring 9cm x 3cm.  Score on the short side at 1.5cm (3 1/2″ x 1 1/8″ scored at approximately 1/2″). This piece will be adhered to the bottom of the treat bag to enable the bottom to be sealed.  To do this, add adhesive along one side of the small scored strip.  Adhere this to  the bottom tab section.  Place adhesive on the back tab and fold over to adhere.  NOTE:  Place your chocolate or other treat in before doing this and wrap it around the treat so it is folded at the right place to fit.  Also, it won’t adhere completely the full length due to the size but will adhere at the top points.

DECORATING THE BAG

To decorate the front of the bag I wanted to keep it simple.  I had just received the You’re Inspiring set so thought it would be just appropriate for Easter.  Although Easter does not exactly fall in our Spring time when the Daffodils appear but it is still nice and sunny and warm and I think these daffodils are quite bright and cheery.  I coloured the daffodils with the Stampin’ Blends.

Once the daffodils were coloured it was then cut with the largest circle from the Layering Circle Framelits.  The paper for the banner is from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.  I flagged the end of the strip and raised that up off the front with Dimensionals.   At the top of the banner piece I added a Gold Binder Clip and tied around some White Organza Ribbon. Adhere your stamped circle off the paper with Dimensionals.  Stamp the sentiment from the Inspiring You set on Pumpkin Pie and punch out with the Duet Banner Punch.  

——-

Thanks for visiting. Now hippity-hoppity to the next blog to see what Easter creativeness beholds.  You will be off to Kim’s blog ->  HERE (click on this to head to it as I have a WordPress blog I can’t add the link within the ‘NEXT’ below). 🙂

ESAD BLOGHOP SALE-A-BRATION 2018!

Today I am joining in on a Bloghop with lots of other demonstrators in Australia and New Zealand in the ESAD Facebook group.  (ie Extra Special Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators.  We are all special though!).  We are focusing on Sale-A-Bration.  You might be starting here or might have come from Melinda’s blog -> HERE.  Either way, enjoy the fabulous creations along the way. 

Firstly, what is ESAD.  Let’s get that out of the way.

I am loving the gorgeous new Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper that has just become available for the second release for Sale-A-Bration last week. You have already heard me go on about it.  🙂  Anyway, I thought a CLASSY CLUTCH BAG AND CARD was in order with this gorgeous paper!!

What special gifts you could fill in this clutch bag. It’s a good size for chocolates, a small gift, makeup???? So many different gifts for a very special occasion.  I will show you how to make the clutch bag further below.

———–

Firstly, the card.

Really, you don’t need to do too much when you add this gorgeous paper to a card.

Firstly I wrapped some Gold Thread several times around the bottom section of the paper.  Then adhered this piece to a Gold Foil mat and then adhered them both to a Thick Whisper White card base.  The “celebrate” is cut from the Celebrate You Thinlits from Gold Foil.  Another bonus choice for Sale-A-Bration.  It is hard to tell but I stamped the “YOU” on to a small piece of Silver Foil in Black Stazon.  I also added a small Vellum leaf under the “celebrate”.  This is from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits set.

MAKE A CLUTCH BAG FOR A SPECIAL GIFT

I originally made this bag back in 2010.   You can see that version -> HERE.  I have been wanting to create it again for some time so this was a great opportunity.

This is the front view.

And we have the side view.

To make your clutch.

NB: Measurements are in Metric and Imperial. (please check the Imperial measurements in scrap card to check. It’s always a good idea to test run your projects beforehand anyway).

1. Cut a piece of the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper (or other card of choice) to 19cm x 20cm (7 1/2″ x 7 7/8″).  NB: Check the pattern of your piece is running the way you want it to.  The 20cm side (7 7/8″) is the front/back.

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

Score on the 20cm (7 7/8″) at 2.5cm and 17.5cm (1″ and 6 7/8″).

2. Cut up the tabs on the side to meet the score line.  Fold on the score lines. Fold up to form a box and then you can see where to place your adhesive.

Add adhesive to your tabs.  Fold up and adhere together in the box shape.

3.  Create your handle. Cut a strip of the Gold foil for your measuring 3cm x 30.5cm (approximately 1 1/4″ x 12″).  TIP:  I ran this piece along the edge of the table a few times to help curl the card strip.  Place adhesive on the ends of the strip and adhered this to the sides of the box.

4. Create your flap for you bag.  From Gold Foil cut your piece 15cm x 10.5cm (6″ x 4 1/8″).  Score on the 10.5cm side (4 1/8″ side) at 5.5cm and 8.5cm (2 3/16″ and 3 3/8″).  Cut the front flap to a triangle if you like.  To do this mark the edge of the Foil piece at 7.5cm (3″) which is the mid-point.  Then cut from the point to the side of the card where the score line meets on both sides.  See the photo to show how it would look. 

5. Place adhesive on the inside edge of the narrow tab. Adhere this to the back of the bag.

6.  I used magnets to hold the bag closed.  Place a magnet on the underside of the front flap.  Then line it up and place a magnet on the front.  I would have preferred to have the magnet inside the bag and I tried several times but the magnets weren’t strong enough for the card thickness.  Maybe your magnets would be better. 🙂

I hope you like this project.  I can imagine it in so many different papers but this paper is just so gorgeous.

Thanks for hopping.

MID-SIZE GIFT TOTE FOR SECRET SANTA!

I can share this project now.  I made this Gift Tote last week with a small gift in it for our team Secret Santa.  I thought you might like to see it and if you are still in need for some Christmas packaging it might be just the size you need.  I have the tutorial below.

It was just the right size for my gift of 2 small tubes of lotion and some chocolates.

The chocolates were wrapped Hershey Nuggets. We can’t get these here in Australia but I grabbed some when I went to Hawaii recently.  Score!! I put them in a cello bag with a little topper.

I wanted to make up a little Tote but I didn’t have any Christmas paper left.  This sheet of the Gold from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper is kinda Christmas-sy. 🙂 Teamed with some Fresh Fig card trim and the ribbon it makes it a little classy don’t you think?

Here is a close up of the tag on the bag.

The sentiment is from the Brightly Lit set layered on a Gold Foil oval and then layered on a Fresh Fig oval cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The Gold ribbon is looped around the handle and adhered between the Fresh Fig and the Gold layer.  The label on the chocolates which you don’t see too well is also from the Brightly Lit set and cut with a circle from the Layering Circles Framelits and one from the Stitched Shapes Framelits again in Fresh Fig.

To make this I was inspired by a tutorial I had saved quite a few years ago before the days of Pinterest.  I converted it to metric and modified the instructions.

Do you want to know how to make your own Tote? I have the tutorial below for you in step-by-step instructions in both metric and in imperial.

If you like a more visual tutorial just hang tight and I will get that out to you shortly.

MID-SIZE GIFT TOTE

1. Cut Designer Series (patterned) paper to 21cm x 28cm (8 ½” x 11”).

2. On the short side score at 3.5cm (1 3/8”) on one side. Turn your paper 180 degrees and score at 3.5cm ( 1 3/8”) on the other side.

3. On the long side score the paper at 11.5cm (4.1/2”) on one end. Turn your paper 180 degrees and score at 11.5cm (4 ½”) on the other end.

4. Cut in on the middle tabs on the long side on both sides. Fold on all the scored lines.

5. Cut 2 strips of Co-ordinating card measuring 21cm x 3.5cm. (8 ½” x 1 3/8”). Score at 3.5cm (1 3/8”) in on each end on each piece. Adhere these strips along the top and bottom edge of the Designer Series Paper.  (ie the short side).

6. Add adhesive to the outside of the small centre tab on the side. Fold up one long side tab over this tab to adhere. Repeat the same on the other side.

7. Run Adhesive on the inside edge of the other long tab and fold over to adhere on to the other side tab. This forms a bag shape.

8. Punch 2 holes along the top evenly spaced. If it helps mark with pencil the points you want to punch to help you line it up.

9. Run your length of ribbon through the holes on one side and tie on the inside to secure. Repeat with ribbon on the other side.

If you make one do share your version with me.  I would love to see it.

Have a great day,

Jenny

PERFECTLY ARTISTIC BAGS!

I know I told you I was going to share some more Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits cards and I will, but I HAVE to show you these bags. I realised the other day that there was less than a week left of some fantastic Sale-A-Bration products. I still had so much of the lovely ‘Perfectly Artistic’ DSP that I just HAD to use. What better way but to use it but to make some bags.

Here they are for you. I thought I would make 3 different ones. I will show you how to make them too.

BLUSHING BRIDE MINI BAG

This cute little pink one is very simple to make. I found the idea on the internet somewhere quite some time ago but I am not sure where now – sorry 🙂

image-5196

Cut your paper to 15cm x 30cm.  (6″ x 12″)

On the 15cm (6″) side, score at 4cm. (1 1/2″)

On the 30cm (12″) side score at 10cm, 14cm, 24cm and 28cm.  (4″, 5 1/2″, 9 1/2″ and 11″)

Cut up on the score lines on the 30cm (12″) side up until it meets the other score line. Cut off the small tab at the end. Add adhesive on the small tab at the side and assemble. Add adhesive to the bottom tabs and fold up and adhere.

Decorate as you like. I have used the greeting from a Sale-A-Bration set ‘Botanicals For You’. I added a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper too for the dazzle factor. To close the bag I simply used a Wooden Clothespin over a folded Paper Doily. 

MINT MACARON BAG

5192

Here is a side view.

5203

The Mint Macaron is another quick bag. You can find the tutorial to make this bag at ChicNScratch HERE.

LARGE BASIC GRAY BAG

5191

This large bag is so easy to make.  I don’t know why it has taken me so long to make one of these. You can find the instructions on a number of blogs.

For mine, I took 2 sheets of the Basic Gray pattern from the pack. On 3 sides, score at 5cm (2″). Cut up on the tabs at the bottom. Place adhesive along the bottom of one sheet and join the 2 sheets together. Place adhesive to the side tabs on one sheet and assemble together.

TIP #1 you could if you like score on the top edge as well when you are scoring and then fold that score line forward to show the inside colour on the outside, if that makes sense? I had decided that I wanted a black edge. I cut strips from black card stock approximately 5cm (2″) wide and adhered that along the top edge. I think it makes a striking contrast.

TIP #2 for your ribbon handles.  I didn’t punch holes in my bags to add the ribbon.  I added the strong Tear Tape to each end of the ribbon and adhered them to inside of the bag.  To cover the ends I punched out an oval in card and adhered this over the ends.  It gives a neater finish I think.

I hope you like these bags. They were fun and I was surprised how easy they were to make. Go and make some yourself. 🙂

Until  next time,

Jenny

TEA BAG HOLDERS FOR A CAUSE!!

I can finally share this project I have been working on the last 2 weeks.  They are all now sent off and reached their destination.  On a Facebook group I am on the call went out for help for a Fundraiser.  I offered to make some little gifts for the goodie bags they would have.  Then the realisation hit – What was I going to do?? I needed 65!!!  After a little pondering I decided to make some little Tea Bag Holders.  I had an abundance of teabags – and lots of retired paper. 🙂

Here is just a sample of some of them.

four

I used the set ‘Garden in Bloom’ for the little labels on the front.  I thought it was very appropriate for such an event.

Here is just one of them. I will share the ‘how to’ further below.

closed

Opened out I could fit a tea bag, a cute tea verse (see below) and my business card.

IMG_20150928_100753384

Here is the verse I put inside.  I found this on Pinterest.

“When  your  day  seems  topsy  turvy,

And as stormy  as  can  be.

There  is  nothing  quite as  tranquil,

As a nice hot  cup  of tea.”

**

So here they are all 65 of them packed and ready to go.

box

So here are the details if you would like to make your own.  There are a few different versions around the internet but these were inspired by a Convention swap I received some years ago.  I adjusted the size so I could fit my business card in and just made them a little differently.  I could get 4 to a 12″x 12″ sheet of Designer Series Paper.

TEA BAG HOLDER

Cut your paper to 7.5 cm x 25 cm     (3″ x 9 7/8″)

Score your paper at 9 cm, 10.2 cm, 11.5 cm and 21 cm.    (3 1/2″, 4″, 4 1/2″ and 8 1/4″).

Fold on your score lines creating a “W” shape. (I hope that makes sense??).  The end with the narrowest scored piece is the front flap. Corner punch the corners on this flap.  I used the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch for most of them or else I used the regular Corner punch.  Add a bow to the front flap.

Stamp your greeting and punch out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch.  Add Dimensionals on the back just on the lower section.  Add to the front of your holder.  You can tuck the flap under the top of the punched circle to hold it together.

I hope you like these.  They are very quick to make once you get going.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny

‘AWESOMELY ARTISTIC GIFT BAG’

When I was at the South Pacific Convention back in late April (yes that long ago!!), I had a play with the Gift Bag Punch Board.  This is a new punch board in the catalogue.  I am sure by now you have seen lots of fun bags and boxes using this new tool.  I haven’t got one but I recently assembled the bag I made. I wasn’t sure how I was going to finish it off I guess that is why it took so long. 🙂 I thought I would show you the finished result.

I used my favourite set ‘Awesomely Artistic’.  Check it out!

P1160882

I stamped the blossoms and the “dotty” strip in Soft Sky on to the Soft Sky Bag base.  The sentiment frame was stamped in Smoky Slate on Smoky Slate card with the greeting stamped in Tangerine Tango.  This was cut with the Project Life Framelits.  The dragonfly was stamped in Tangerine Tango and fussy cut.  I had to add some Silver Metallic Thread loops.  I only just received that thread THAT DAY! Whoop!  I tied off the bag with the White Cotton Ribbon.

Check out a close-up of the thread loops.

P1160885

Hope you like it?  If you do a quick search for the Gift Bag Punch Board you can find lots of different ways of using this board.  If you check out on Pinterest there will be LOTS more ideas. 🙂  Check out the Stampin’ Up! Youtube video below to see how easy it is to use.  (If you receive this blog post by email you might need to go directly to my blog post to view the video.  Sorry.  Sometimes the video links get missed)

Thanks for checking out my ‘Awesomely Artistic’ bag.

Have a great day,

BOHEMIAN TOTE!!

I have been playing around with the new Bohemian Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I really like the colours and the funky patterns.  Totes are all the go at the moment and I wanted to create a new Tote.  It is not a particularly new design using 2 sheets of the DSP but I thought I would change it up a bit.  Plus I added a little tab to hang your gift card off. I hope you like this one 🙂

P1160789       P1160791

 

P1160795

Would you like to make one?  Here are the instructions in metric and imperial.

BOHEMIAN TOTE

2 Sheets of 12×12 Designer Series Paper (DSP) I have used the Bohemian DSP

Handles: 2 pieces of 20.5cm x 8cm (8” x 3 1/8”) co-ordinating cardstock

1 piece of 28cm x 8cm (11” x 3 1/8”) co-ordinating cardstock

Card Tab on Handle:   2cm x 10cm (¾” x 4”) co-ordinating cardstock

Inside Base:   4.8cm x 20.2cm (1 7/8” x 8”) co-ordinating cardstock

  1. On each piece of DSP score your sheets at 5cm (2”) on each side. Fold on each of the score lines.
  2. Cut up on the small score lines at the bottom of each piece of DSP.

P1160761

 

  1. Add adhesive to the 2 small bottom tabs on one sheet of the DSP on the outside. Adhere this to the inside of the long bottom tab.
  2. Place this assembled piece on to the second piece of DSP which has the right side facing down.

P1160763

 

  1. Add adhesive to the bottom small tabs on the second DSP sheet and assemble on to the bottom of the first piece. Add adhesive to the long side tabs on the inside of the second sheet of DSP. Adhere this to the first piece.  Add adhesive to the long bottom tab of the second sheet of DSP and fold up on to the first piece.  So it is like wrapping the second sheet onto the first sheet. (The piece at the bottom would be the front of the bag so just check to see what print you want showing).
  2. On the 28cm x 8cm (11”x 3 1/8”) piece for the handle, place adhesive at each end of the handle ON THE UNDERSIDE. Adhere on the outside of the bag near the top.
  3. Take one end of this handle piece and adhere to the top of the bag on the outside of the bag. Adhere the other end to the other side of the bag on the outside of the bag.

P1160765

  1. Take one piece of your 20.5cmx8cm (8”x 3 1/8”) cardstock and place adhesive on the back of this piece. Line up the top edge of the piece with the top edge of your bag positioning it over the handle piece. And adhere on to the front of the bag.  Repeat with the other piece adhering this to the back of your back.  NOTE: If you wish to add brads to your bag for decoration ADD THESE FIRST.  (Just so you don’t see the back of them inside the bag).

P1160766

  1. Fold on the score lines of the small card tab and unfold.  Add adhesive to the ends (on the side facing up). Fold over the piece again and adhere this piece to the front of your bag.

P1160796

 

  1. Add your piece of cardstock base to the inside of the card. This provides some extra strength.

Decorate the bag as you like.

——————-

Card to hang on the front measures 20cm x 7.5cm. Score at 10cm.

7 ½” x 3”. Score at 3 ¾”

P1160798

For my card I used the Boho Chic Embossing Folder on the front of the Bermuda bag card.  The Happy Birthday is from ‘Amazing Birthday’. I stamped it first onto Whisper White Cardstock in Blackberry Bliss and then again twice on scrap card with Bermuda Bay and Delightful Dijon.  I cut 2 of the “HAPPY’s” out of each colour and adhered them over the top of the Blackberry Bliss greeting. The Whisper White piece was matted on to Delightful Dijon and the whole piece was raised up with dimensionals.  I wrapped around some Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine and added a silver button that I had sewed with white sewing thread.  This complemented the silver buttons on the bag.

 

I hope you like this version of the Tote Bag.  It’s a good size for those larger gifts.  Enjoy making them.

Have a happy weekend.  I hope it’s a crafty one for you.  It’s a long weekend here so I hope there is some time to create this weekend.

LARGE TOTE BAGS ARE ALL THE RAGE!!!

You  might have seen lots of little Tote Bags around the internet???  They are great little gift bags to give those special gifts to others.  A few years ago now I created a larger Tote Bag as many of them were great for card sizes or small gifts but if you have a larger gift THEN a larger Tote is needed right???  The Totes I shared way back then continue to be a huge hit on my blog and they have a large number of repins on Pinterest every week.  SO, if you have missed it, I thought I would show you these again. I have another type of bag in the process at the moment and when I finally get to create them I will share that too.

So here is my Tote bags for you that you can make to give that special larger gift.  (maybe a top or scarf or LOTS of chocolates!!!). 😉

You can find the tutorial to make these in this post HERE.

A little while after making these I decided it was time for an update.

P1110769

You can find this Tote in this post HERE.  I followed the original tutorial with a few modifications.

I would love to see your versions so send me a photo. If you make one then don’t forget to give credit.  🙂

Have a great weekend,

Jenny
