Scallop envelope pouch – for my convention roomie!

I found a beautiful pouch on pinterest that was made from the Scallop Envelope die and just had to know how to make it! Kristine from who made the original pouch, was kind enough to send me the instructions!

How To:

  1. Cut card stock at 10″ x 4-7/8″
  2. Score it at 4″ and 6-1/4″
  3. Fold the card stock on the scored lines so when you look from the side it is a ‘Z’.
  4. Put this on your die so that the two folds sit inside the score lines of the die.
  5. Die-cut, then open out.
  6. You will need two of these (one front and one back).
  7. Once you have put your pocket together, make a belly band to cover up the score lines.

Comfort Cafe Tea Holder

Did you know? The new catalog starts today!  A great new layout, and awesome new product and some returning stuff too like the stamp set I used on this cute tea holder.  It was from the last holiday mini and is called You Are Loved.  The flowers in this set match this designer paper pretty well 🙂  There’s a tutorial to make this tea holder here: Tea Bag Holder.  It’s really pretty easy to make!

Comfort Cafe Bookmark

This is a fun corner bookmark (fits in the top corner of your page).  The directions to make this was in our demonstrator magazine Stampin’ Success in March.  I used the edgelits to curve the end for a fancier look.  Mary Fish had a great video tutorial, so click her name to go see it!

Quilt Favor Boxes

I made these cute favor boxes and cards for some of my good friends as a special treat since we were having a slumber party 🙂 I haven’t been to one of those in ages! I thought the quilt was a good theme for that. I completely forgot to fill the boxes with candy as originally planned though, so I guess it was a diet treat? 😀

It’s a Wrap Treat Bag

This is the 3rd project we’ll make at the stamp camp on March 17.  Its a Fancy favor bag filled with wrapped nuggets.  I thought it would be a great thank you or little birthday gift.

Fresh Vintage Love Note Box

I had a few experiments with boxes for my project at this month’s stamp camp, and this is the one I think I’ve settled on. I got the idea from a project we did at my demonstrator group’s meeting last year. It is a box created with the Bigz XL Box #2 die. Fold the small flaps in and leave the top flap unfolded and open. It fits and displays love notes that coordinate with the box.
