Christmas Collectibles Folded Paper Frame

How fun is this card. It uses a technique called Folded Paper Frame and we learned it at my September Technique Geeks Class. My next class is Saturday, October 26th at 2:00, let me now if you would like to join us.

Christmascollectibleswindow

The card uses the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack, Silver 1/8" Ribbon, Silver Foil Sheets and the Christmas Collectibles Bundle.  All these items can be found in the Holiday Catalog.

We have a number of bundled products in our catalogs and you save 15% when you order them.

BundlespicTo create the paper frame, you cut a square,in this case, I used a 4x4.  Fold the corners to the middle creating a smaller square and then fold the corners out again to make a frame.  I stamped my ornament in Island Indigo, punched it out and mounted it to a 1 3/4 Circle cut from Pool Party.  These were both mounted to a 2-3/4 x 2-3/4 piece of our Silver Foil Sheets, looks so cool in real life.

Best of Halloween Gift Box

My favorite Halloween set this year is the 25th Anniversary set called Best of Halloween.  I have done some cute cards with it and now I want to show you a fun gift box I made using our Kraft Gift Boxes on page 160 of the Annual Catalog.  The boxes are very inexpensive at only $2.95 for three.  They measure 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 x 2-1/2.

Bestofhallbox

I stamped the witch's hat in Jet Black StazOn, punched it out with the 1-3/4 Circle Punch.  I added it to a Basic Gray Circle that I cut in half and mounted to the back.

Bestofhallbox1

My strips of Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper are adhered to the sides and top of the box.  The strips measure 2-1/2 x 2 for the front panel and 7 x 2 for the back panel that comes over the top and onto the tucked in flap.

I made the Gift Bow from our NEW Gift Bow Bigz L Die and added the "Trick or Treat" greeting from the Best of Halloween stamp set to the center of it.

Season of Style Washi Tape and Designer Journaling Tags #3

Wednesday & Thursday, I showed you eight of the twelve cards I made while riding on the field trip bus with my son's class.  Today I have the third set.  I used the Season of Style Washi Tape, Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags along with twelve 5"x3-1/2" folded Crumb Cake cards and the NEW Crumb Cake Note Card Envelopes.

Seasonofstyletagcardsgroup2

You probably noticed that there are only three cards in this set and I said I made twelve.  I did make twelve, only the twelfth card somehow didn't make it home with me and must still be on the bus!! 

I layered the tags on these cards.  I measured them and added 1/4" to that measurement to create the mat.  I also added some Crumb Cake Seam Binding to the card on the bottom.

Season of Style Washi Tape and Designer Journaling Tags

I went on a field trip with my son's class and needed something to do for the long bus ride to and from our destination. I quickly grabbed my Season of Style Washi Tape, Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags along with twelve 5"x3-1/2" folded Crumb Cake cards and the NEW Crumb Cake Note Card Envelopes.

It was easy to add the Washi Tape to the front of the cards while in the bus and then I added one of the Journaling Tags to the front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I stamped any greetings I needed and added the stars punched from some Champagne Glimmer Paper when I got home.
