3D projects, Christmas


Today I thought I would show you the notebooks I made for my recent Fairs I have been to.  These were all fun to make too and a great way to use up the scrap paper bits you have lying around.

Firstly, some notepad covers.  Very useful to have around the home or by the computer for quick notes.




To make these: Check the size of your notepads but I will give you the measurements for these ones.

Cut your card to 28cm x 21cm.  Score on the long side at 9cm, 10cm and 19cm.  Turn your card 90′ and score on the short side at 1cm and 3cm.  Cut off the small section on the top (only on this section and then the larger section below.  Does that make sense?? I didn’t make a template to show you.  You just want to end up with a small strip towards the top that the Notepad hangs off from the backing card on the notepad.  Decorate the front as you like.


Some post-it note holders.  These are fun to make.



I don’t have an exact measure for these but they are simply a small piece of card that folds over to fit.  Make sure to allow extra to score 2 lines in the centre to create a spine in the middle. Decorate the front as you like.



Notepads: just cover notepads as you like.  I didn’t want to fiddle with the spiral top so I just chose some coloured paper that co-ordinates closely to it.  I think it is OK!  Decorate with butterflies and bling!



These notebooks I picked up from the discount store too and just decorated them as I liked.



Hope you liked these ideas?  If you missed the previous posts on Craft Fair projects then you can check HERE. Don’t forget to check the previous post too.

PS. Week 8 of 12 Weeks of Christmas is due out today.  As I am away from the computer I am not able to post it today so when I get back tomorrow I will post it as soon as I can. 🙂

3D projects, Christmas


I am away this week but thought I would schedule a few posts for you – so you don’t miss me too much 🙂  The last couple of months I have done a few Fairs and School Fetes so I thought I would show you the projects I have made for these.  Previous posts for these on my blog have been really popular (and I will add the links at the end if you have missed those).  I know when I have done these I have searched around the internet looking for ideas so I am sure you might do too.

Here are some of the projects I have recently made.

Firstly, I made up some Gift Card Holders.  These are very useful at Christmas time I think as many people give Gift Cards as gifts.  I used the Envelope Punch Board and made it to the Gift Card size holder on the measurements.  These were decorated with all kinds of stars.  Some of the stars had been sitting around my desk so it was a good way to use them.


Many people give money as Gifts too so I thought it would be nice to dress up the cash instead of just sticking it in an envelope.  I found this idea on a blog somewhere and I am sorry I am not sure where now though.  I did adjust the measurements to make a better fit for our size notes. I have the instructions just below.  Just check your own currency note size to fit.



MONEY HOLDER  (in metric).

Cut card to 18cmx18cm.  Score on one side at 8.5cm and 17cm.

Fold on the score lines. Punch a half circle on the front flap with the 1″ circle punch.  Add Sticky Strip or other strong adhesive along the narrow tab and fold up on the score lines and adhere together. Decorate as you like.


Cut card 8cmx16cm. Punch out 2 1″ circles from co-ordinating cardstock fold in half.  Staple one on each end towards the edge of the card to allow the note to slip in on either end.  Remember just to check the measurements for your own currency.  You can’t see but I stamped the insert front too.

Now how can you forget your furry friend.  These were very popular at my fairs.  I just cut the topper from the Top Note die and folded it in half.  The stamps are from the the set ‘D is for Dog’.

Stop by again in the next few days I have some more projects to share with you.


3D projects


Two posts in one day but I can’t help it.  I am having so much fun with the Envelope Punch Board that I JUST HAVE to show you what I just made with it.  There are lots of fun little treat holders in the blogosphere if you look around.   I came across this cute little one yesterday and had to make it today.  Check it out!

For my box I used black cardstock and wrapped around some ‘Modern Medley’ DSP.  The “For You” tag was stamped from ‘Chalk Talk’.  I die cut a Melon Mambo label from the Chalk Talk Framelits and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. The box measures 12.5cm x 3cm.

I found this cute box on Pinterest and went to the blog.  You can find the tutorial for it here on Jen’s blog.  This was for a chocolate treat holder.  I am not sure if our size chocolate bars fit in this.  I will have to investigate that one.  After I finished this box I searched out some ideas around the house for some little gifts that will fit in it.  It does fit the ‘Summer Roll’ bar and fits 6 mini Hershey Chocolate bars.  For the young girls it will fit 2 little eye liner or lip gloss sticks.  I think you could find some other low-fat ideas for this little box.

So have you got your Envelope Punch Board yet??? You have to have one you know.  Contact me if you need to order one and haven’t yet got yourself a Local Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

Maybe I should try and make some envelopes with it now!!! LOL
