BOOK BINDING FOLD CARD + VIDEO!

I shared a card recently with Adventurous Journey Stamp Set that was a Book Binding Fold Card. I had a lot of requests to make a video of it to share how to create one.

So I have it for you today.

This card was using the Cup of Tea Bundle and the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper.

Below is the video that you can check out.

TEA BOUTIQUE Z FOLD CARD!

You can create a very easy Z Fold card with the Tea Boutique Cards and Envelopes. Simply score the front of the card in half. Turn the card inwards then fold the card back on itself on the fold.

Add a strip of the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper inside the card. Then on the front add a tea cup and flowers on a diecut rectangle from the Scalloped Contours Dies.

What do you think? It’s very quick and easy to create.

The Tea Boutique is a great collection of products.

You can see it in my store -> HERE.

IS THERE LEMON IN YOUR TEA?

Do you have lemon in your tea? Hot Lemon and honey is great as a tea when you have a sore throat or cold. There is a lot of that going around here where I am at the moment.

With the Tea Boutique Suite you can create Lemon Tea projects.

You can create a frame from the paper. I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies. You can use other shape dies too.

The sentiment is from the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set.

WINTER CRAFTERNOON CATCH-UP!

On the weekend I held my Winter Crafternoon event at a local Tea Room. It was such a lovely day. I thought I would share some of it with you.

We had a large group of excited crafters. The projects were around the Tea Boutique Suite. Very apt for this venue. 🙂

Lots of creative fun.

After crafting it was a relaxing time with chatting over Devonshire Tea. Everyone had an enjoyable time and talks of another Crafternoon for next year is already happening.

Crafting brings people together to chat and connect and talk and share. Isn’t it a wonderful thing. It’s not just ink and paper.

How delectable is this?? All presented so beautifully.

Such a lovely display in the Tea Room at Sugar, Butter Eggs in Woonona. Owned and operated by my lovely friend Harmony and her husband.

Rather than packing the card kits in Cello bags I made up little pouches with the Envelope Punch Board from pages of the retiring Mini Catalogue.

I made up little tags to go with a Chocolate Treat in their Goodie Bags.

I will share more of the projects everyone created in the next post so be sure to stop on by.

And if you are local be sure to head in to Sugar, Butter, Eggs in Woonona for a lovely Devonshire Tea, High Tea or any other delectable you might like. (See it HERE).

See you back here tomorrow for part 2.

A CARD WITH A POCKET + A VIDEO!

Today’s video is a fun card I think. It’s a Pocket Front card.

It’s a standard size card and with a little folding and scoring creates a pocket in the front. Just the size for a tea bag, Gift Card or even a small chocolate.

I have a video to show you how to make it but also have the measurements below for you so you can recreate your own.

Here is the card for you. We have some different angles so you get an idea of it.

I used the Tea Boutique Collection for this card. Quite an appropriate one to include a Tea Bag in the pocket.

Below is the view from the front with the card standing up. It can stand well just on the point.

Lying flat.

Inside. I added a piece of white card so there is room to write.

Check the video out below.

The original idea came from Splitcoaststampers website -> HERE.

CREATE YOUR OWN POCKET FRONT CARD

Follow along with the video to see the scoring and folding of the card.

Base card 14.8cm x 21cm Score on the long side at 10.5cm

5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Score on the long side at 4 1/4″

On the long side place the left hand edge at the 7.4cm or 2 3/4″ point on the Paper Trimmer. Mark in pencil at the little channel on the Trimmer. Alternatively use a ruler to measure in 7.4cm or 2 3/4″ from the left hand edge and mark the point.

Turn card clockwise 1/4 turn. Mark halfway on this side which will be 7.4cm or 2 3/4″.

Score an angled line from the centre mark on the short side to the mark on the long side. Repeat the angled line from the centre to the mark on the other long side.

Fold on the score lines and fold in at the angles. Adhere to 2 angled folds down with tape.

Cut Designer Series Paper to 10cm x 10cm 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.

Cut the piece at an angle from one corner to the other. Keep one triangle as a large piece. Cut the other triangle in 2 to have 2 half triangles.

Adhere the large piece to the front of the card.

White card for inside measures 14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.

Adhere the 2 smaller triangles on each of the bottom corners. Adhere the white card inside the base card.

Decorate as you wish to.

I hope you get to make one. Let me know how you go.

Have a great day,
