As soon as once more my Paper Pumpkin package has offered hours of enjoyable, this time with the November package referred to as “Presents Galore”. It’s designed to make 9 giant deal with packages however right now I’ve one thing totally different in thoughts. So right here’s two extra alternate initiatives for you as I be a part of this month’s A Paper Pumpkin Factor weblog hop. Get pleasure from.
Each my alternate initiatives contain chopping up the massive printed items designed as the back and front of the packages. For my first undertaking I’ve an thought for fast and simple folded reward tag.
For the tag base I started by chopping a 3-1/4″ x 6-1/2″ piece of Fundamental Black Card and scored it at 3-1/4″. After folding it alongside the scored line I then wanted so as to add a gap to show the mini card right into a tag.
For this I took the Detailed Trio Punch and slid the open card below oval gap part. I adjusted the cardboard so the crease was simply to the precise of the centre line marked on the punch. Then once I punched I had a neat oval gap in the back of the tag. Lastly I minimize some Poppy Parade & white baker’s twine from the Presents Galore package and threaded it by means of the outlet. As soon as I’d tied it in a easy knot I used to be able to work on the ornament for the tag.
From the package I took one of many pile of presents items and utilizing Paper Snips minimize out the entire presents. For this tag although I’d want simply two. So utilizing Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I mounted the inexperienced striped reward onto the tag base. Nevertheless, earlier than persevering with I wanted to perform a little stamping utilizing the unique stamp set from the Presents Galore package.
Utilizing Tuxedo Black ink I first stamped “to: from: ” onto a 2-5/8″ x 2-5/8″ piece of Fundamental White Card. Then utilizing liquid glue I mounted this piece contained in the tag.
Subsequent from the package I took a die-cut circle piece and stamped “Oh what enjoyable”. I added this to the tag utilizing Stampin’ Dimensionals. To complete I used Stampin’ Dimensionals so as to add the second reward, and my first undertaking was achieved.
BIG BIRTHDAY SNOWMAN
The Presents Galore package was designed for Christmas however that doesn’t imply it may’t be used for different events. My second alternate undertaking proves that time fairly properly I believe.
OK I do know the cardboard is considerably just like the one from yesterday’s weblog publish, however I promise you it’s definitely worth the effort.
I started by making ready my card base from Fundamental Black Card. Then I minimize a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of the snowflake sample from the retiring Peaceable Place 12″ x 12″ Designer Collection Paper (DSP) pack. Utilizing liquid glue I mounted the DSP to the entrance of the cardboard base as a background.
Subsequent I minimize a 1″ x 4″ piece of the identical DSP and glued it alongside the highest of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Fundamental White Card. Then alongside the underside fringe of the DSP I added a 1/8″ x 4″ strip of Fundamental Black Card. Lastly I glued the assembled layer inside the cardboard base.
Now I wanted only one remaining piece of DSP minimize at 2-1/4″ x 6″. I glued this piece to the flap of a Fundamental White Medium Envelope. Then I trimmed off the surplus with Paper Snips, utilizing the sting of the flap as a information.
Lastly I used to be able to get to work on my snowman.
I need to admit that I could also be just a little obsessive about the massive snowman within the Presents Galore package, however that didn’t imply he couldn’t be improved upon. So I began by chopping a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Snowy White Velvet Sheet. Then I positioned the snowman face down on the again of the sheet so I might draw round him with a pencil. I minimize out the snowman form from the Velvet Sheet and set it apart whereas I ready the remainder of the items.
My subsequent job was so as to add definition to the printed areas utilizing the writing tip of a Fundamental Black Stampin’ Write Marker. This was the method I illustrated in yesterday’s weblog publish Presents Galore with an added twist. As soon as the pen strains have been added I then minimize out the entire printed sections of the snowman. Whereas I used to be chopping I took care to maintain the white sections all hooked up to one another. This is able to assist me with the reassembly course of.
The place I’d minimize into the snowman to take away the printed particulars I mounted him again along with items of sellotape. Then I laid him on prime of the Velvet Sheet. Now utilizing liquid glue I might repair the small print onto the Velvet Sheet utilizing the ‘scrap’ snowman to assist me with their placement.
With all of the items in place it was time to trim down the snowman in order that he’d match onto the cardboard base. So I held him towards the entrance of the cardboard base and tilted him barely till I used to be pleased with how he appeared. Holding him tight I flipped all the pieces over so I might use a pencil to mark the underside and folded fringe of the cardboard onto the again of the snowman. Then I trimmed off the surplus earlier than lastly fixing him to the cardboard entrance with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
All I wanted now was a sentiment and for that I reached for the One Completely satisfied Household Stamp Set. I selected “Completely satisfied Birthday” which fitted onto one of many white banner items from the Presents Galore package. After stamping it with Tuxedo Black ink I trimmed off the straight finish of the banner. Then with a number of extra Stampin’ Dimensionals I added the sentiment to the cardboard and my second alternate undertaking of the day was achieved.
I like how each the initiatives turned out, however particularly the cardboard. It’s only a disgrace you possibly can’t truly really feel the comfortable texture of the Velvet Sheet.
