Kraft Envelopes For Party Favors

By Planner Stationary & Accessories

Set2

Hi all,

So it seems that wedding season and times of formal parties all happen during the summer. Today I wanted to create a little project to embellish the thought of party favor bags.

To start I grabbed a roll of my favorite kraft paper and cut several (hundred) dies of this bag template. It included score marks which made it easier to figure out where to fold every flap.

How darling is the bag itself!? To embellish them I have several of these doily type adhesive embellishments in my stash. I slowly separated them out to create bundles of envelopes to package up.

Here they are ready to go. They can be used with the gusset, which makes them stand up on their own. Or they can be used flat if you pinch the bottom.

I’m so in love with all things kraft and white so you bet I’ll be making many more of these in the near future!

Boxed Mini Cards featuring Altenew Stamp Layering

Hi all,

I recently purchased a beautiful set of stamps from Altenew. I am in love with this company for the reason that many of their stamp sets are layering stamps. When you add various hues together, you achieve these beautiful dimensional images!

Here’s a quick glance a boxed set I created. I made 10 mini cards and 10 envelopes to match (they are under the stack in the box).

The sentiment is a mini stamp from a Simon Says Stamp collection.

How to Create Envelopes

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hi Everyone!

As promised, I’m back with a continuation to my previous post on folding cards. I mentioned I would share a how-to video on creating quick envelopes for standard size cards. To refresh your memory, here’s a picture of the folding card & envelopes…envelopes

I have 2 different methods to create this card.

Method One: Martha Stewart Scoring Board (or a ruler and something to mark your page)
Step 1) Cut a piece of scrapbook paper to 8.5″ x 8.5″
Step 2) Turn the paper so it is in a diagnol shape (or use the tool provided for with the board)
Step 3) Score your paper at 3″ rotate & score it again at 3 5/8″ (then repeat for the other 2 sides).
Step 4) Add some glue and adhere your envelope together.

Method 2: Digital Cut File – I used silhouette studio
Step 1) Cut your envelope template
Step 2) Crease your folds
Step 3)  Add some glue and adhere your envelope together.

Although both methods produce the same result, I tend to lean towards using the digital cut file to create my envelopes. It is a great way to mass produce envelopes when you are in a time crunch.

I hope you found this tutorial helpful! Feel free to leave comments or questions =)

See you next time!

Valentine’s For Classroom or Workplace

By Cards

Hi all,

I’m just about wrapping up on all my Valentine’s Day cards for the week but wanted to share the last few card designs I created. It’s been a year of puns for the most part. As you may have noticed I’ve created quite a number of cards with silly/goofy sentiments that kids are getting a good laugh out of. So I wanted to create one more set of pun cards that are more of a boy theme (but honestly, a girl could totally love these)!

These robots are created with multiple layers of vellum and have a TON of blingy details. They are also mounted up on some solid foam dimensional. My inner card-maker would love to have hidden the foam tape so it’s not so easily visible, however, I feel like kids would LOVE the opportunity to lift these bad boys off the card and stick ’em to something else. So I added a bit of tape to the backs for such a scenario.il_570xN.725068043_as6u

Here’s the inside. I added a to/from line for kids to fill out. I love a bit of personal touch to any card.

Next, I wanted to create a quick set of workplace, adult-friendly cards. These are probably my favorite of all my Valentine’s day cards. There’s just something about chalkboard art & kraft brown paper that I love. I added a pop of color by creating coordinating red envelopes.

How cute are these!?
