Got Scraps?? make some cards

I made this set of note cards for my Hostess this past weekend.  

The card box is cased from one that Lauren Meader made.  I did not purchase her template- I was able to figure the box out by looking at it.  Can’t say I was that lucky with any of her other templates.  She is super talented.

these are flat note cards.  each base is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.  the whisper white layer is just a bit smaller at 4 x 5-1/4.  I took some scraps I had a TON of long skinny strips.  I trimmed the DSP to 5″ x 3/4″ and made these:  there are 2 of each.

I cased these from Michelle Wooderson.  You can see her’s HERE.

these are a great way to use of those strips of Designer paper that you always think you will use but never do.  Hmmmm I am thinking I may need to make this a category.  Everyone’s Got Scraps!!

NOTE: I lost my creativity a week or so ago and the only way I have been able to create anything at all is to case. (copy and selectively edit) I hope you don’t mind.  I have a few new items coming.  thank goodness my creativity is back and flowing again!

Scallop Bag Tutorial

I have to admit I tried to do this as a video– but I could not get past the sticky strip!  So I took pictures instead.  I do have a video in the works though.  I need to learn how to edit them so you can’t see the mistakes!

Some of you wonderful ladies have emailed me about the Bag with scallop that was part of my Valentines class.  Here is a “how to” on the assembly of this cute bag.  We made this one at one of my recent workshops too.  The only “precaution” is the very faint score lines.

This is the delicate dots sale-a-bration paper.  These are the pieces that are from the scallop bag die for the Big shot.  I wanted the blue on the outside of the bag and the green on the inside so you will see how I flip the paper when putting the bag together.  Can you see the score lines?  I folded them- they are very faint when coming through the big shot.

Add some sticky strip to the short tabs

Attach them to the center panel as shown
Add sticky strip to the long tabs:

Adhere the box panels together:

Pinch the top of the bag:

Fold the scallop lid over top, still pinching:

Punch 2 large holes with your crop-a-dile:

Tie with ribbon. The celery panel is 2″ x 3″ and the white is just slightly smaller

Decorate the front as shown:

Finish the bag by attaching the panel to the front.

This bag hold 5 Hershey Nuggets or 8 Hershey kisses.  CUTE!!!!
