Washi Tape Booklet

Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick project I created for the same swap where I altered the cigar box for Lisa. I wanted to make something to hold samples of washi tape and I thought Eileen Hull’s Needle Book was the prefect solution. I cut a Needle Book from mat board, embossed with Floral Tapestry embossing folder and spritzed with Cadillac Pink Glimmer Mist. Once dry I added a piece of cardstock and a printable bird that I had laying around from a pervious project to the front. I punched small holes in the front and back covers and tied off thread in each hole. Also I added a brad to the front to cover the hole.

Inside I adhered a strip of cardstock to the inside covers. I used the packaging from a Sizzix diecut and cut it down slightly smaller that the book and then rounded the corners with my Paper Gator Corner Rounder. I carefully folded the plastic into to create a page and then punch two small holes in the fold. Before sewing the plastic into the book I picked some of my favorite rolls of washi tape wound them off onto the plastic and used a needle and thread and stitched it to the spine of the book.

I finished off with some lace on the cover and fiber on the spine. Here is a helpful hint if you do use packaging it can sometimes be tricky to work with especially when folding in half because it can crack in the middle. So be careful and if you know of a better solution please let me know. 🙂 Also if you do have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Snowman Fun!

Hi there! I’m here to share another 32 count matchbox I altered for a swap I am in. I love the soft vintage feel of this Bundled Up paper collection from Crate Paper!  

I wrapped and tied some red twine around the box and added snowflake sequin and button with another clear sequin and dew drop to finish off this adorable matchbox. Now all I have to do is fill it with tiny goodies and mail. Hope my swap partner likes it. 🙂
If you have any questions please let me know.

Santa’s Workshop

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a project I created for a swap I am in over on Swap-bot. For this swap we had to alter a 32 count matchbox with a Christmas theme and fill it with goodies.

I used the Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter Cardstock to cover inside and out the surfaces of the matchbox.

I also used one of the Santa tickets from the  Merry Christmas Digital Collage Ticket Sheet from the Cameo Shoppe. All digital images are 75% off through the 28th of November. Now would be a great time to stock up on images for upcoming projects.

This is all of the little bits and pieces of goodies I stuffed into this little matchbox.

It’s hard to believe I was able to stuff all of that into this little bitty matchbox but I did…here’s the proof 🙂 I hope my swap partner likes with I put together for her. 🙂
If you have any questions please let me know.

Supplies Used:
Robin’s Nest: Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter Cardstock, Cameo Shoppe: Merry Christmas Digital Collage Ticket Sheet, 32 count matchbox, Brad, jingle bell, dew drops, ribbon, paper flower, sequins, punches

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Altered Fall Theme Matchbox

On this crisp cool Fall day I would like to share a quick project I created all in one afternoon. I took a empty 32 count matchbox and covered the outside with some scraps of scrapbook paper. I added some Prima flowers with a brad in the center and a leave to the upper right hand side of the matchbox. I gathered a little bit of lace and added some Fall berries and taa-dah!!! Instant super cute gift!!!


Anything tiny can be added to the inside…buttons, brads, beads, lace, ribbon, charms, the list goes on and on.

I hope this inspires you to create something 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and looking!!!

Crafty Card Gallery DT and a Art Journal Page Thrown in too

I would have shared this sooner but have been under the weather this week. I do now feel a lot better. First I would like to share some super fun news…drum rolls please… I made the Crafty Card Gallery Design Team…I’m doing the happy dance. Me along with 17 other super talented crafty folks were selected to Jennifer Restivo’s inaugural design team.

If you get a chance please go check out the blog and see just how creative everyone is.

Also I would like to share a quick photo of a page out of my art journal I had worked on. This page is actually made out of a toilet paper roll. First I flattened the roll, used a bone folder to get sharp edges on the roll. The front I wanted to share my cousin Lorie’s birthday. I used scrap’s of scrapbook paper, heart button embellishment, baker’s twine, stamped July the 4th and finally used some left over Crafty Secrets images.

On the other side, which I had a total blast creating, I used scraps of scrapbook paper, eyelet, Prima flower with a brad in the center, Prima wings, Martha Stewart crown punch with a button in the center, the baby is a leftover Crafty Secrets image that half of the body had been cut away. So to cover up this obvious flaw I made a “nest” out packing paper…I think it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself…***smiles***…and last but not least I used some Pink Paislee stickers for the date.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to create something fun!!!
Enjoy creating!!!
