Happy Birthday Purse!?

When I made my  Happy Birthday Money Envelope I decided it needed a little something for it to go  into.  This is what I came up with.

There are many of these types of purses all over the internet.  I did alter mine to be a little smaller.

Christmas Post-It Note Holders – How To

I have had quite a few emails and a few comments asking me for the instructions to the Christmas Post-It Note Holders as seen below…

P1010688

So I thought I would attempt to explain how I made them.

Cut a piece of cardstock 8-1/2" x 3-1/4".

Score the cardstock at 2", 2-1/2", 5-3/4" and 6-1/4". 

Cut a piece of pattern paper 2-1/2" x 3-1/4" and score the pattern paper at 1/2".

Attach your pattern paper to the cardstock so that the 1/2" score line matches up with the 2" score line on the cardstock.  It should look something like this.

I used my crop-a-dile to punch two small holes for my ribbon to go through.

I cut a piece of ribbon approximately 8-1/2", threaded it through the holes and tied knots on each of the ends.  I then used my ATG to add adhesive to the back of the post-it note pad and attached inside.

Next step is to add a closure of some sort….I used velcro.  Then decorate as you like.

I hope this helps you out.  If you have any questions just let me know!!

My Cricut Craft Room’s Would You Ever Guess Wednesday!

Would you Ever Guess Wednesday

 On Wednesdays the design team tries to show you different ways to use your cartridges. We might use a cake cartridge in our regular Cricut and show you how to make a paper creation with it. We might use just the feature keys on the cartridge to show you some extras that people forget about.

If you look at the back of the cartridge it shows you all of the 'put together' images. But there are always bonus 'features' they may be a font or a phrase or even a tag, card or icon. We just like to keep you guessing what will be next on Wednesdays.

Today I used the Holiday Cakes cake cartridge to make this Halloween Card.

Paper Purse

I came across this beautiful purse and knew I had to try to make it.  I have made these before using a 6 x 6 piece of paper but these instructions used a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock.

Wallet Gift Card Holder

I have seen a few wallet type gift card holders online and thought I would make a couple.  This was my test run.  I thought I would try to make one that would match the purses I made recently.  This would hold a gift card or two or even some gum or thin treats.  I did make a couple of others that I will share tomorrow.

Another Purse

I thought I would continue with the purse theme and share this smaller purse I made recently.  This would be cute to hold some treats or 3×3 cards.  It's definately smaller than the last set of purses I made.

Also a few people asked me about my stamp I had made so I took a better picture.  I actually had two stamps made as I couldn't decide which elephant I liked better.

The circle is cut out with a 1-3/4" circle punch and the other is cut out with Stampin Up's Decorative Label Punch.

Until next time…have fun creating!!
