Gift Tag Tutorial
Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I have another video tutorial today, I know you must be sick of the sound of my voice by now but a video tutorial is the best way to show how easy these super cute little gift bags are. They measure 4 inches by 4 inches, so they are a good size for popping some jewellery in or some sweets and a gift card, what girl doesn't like a hand bag?!
You will need a piece of card that measures 9inch x 4 inches
Score this along the long side at: 4 ich and 5 inch
The bag side pieces measure: 1 1/2 inch x 5 inch
score along the long side at : 4 inch
and along the short side at : 1/4 inch and 1 1/4 inch, also mark a tiny line at halfway point (3/4 inch)
The decorative papers were cut at 3 3/4 on both sides, but see the video for full details.
The rest of the Tutorial is easier to follow along with video rather than me trying to explain in text. You will love how it turns out, you can use up small bits of decorative paper for this or from as little as a 6x6 pad.
I would love to see your designs, so remember to send them in!!!
Now onto your crafts and shopping.........
It was Harry's 4th Birthday this week, which I cannot believe, it barely seems five minutes since his 1st Birthday! Anyway, Harry is a PJ Masks fan, (I think it is one of the popular Kiddies TV show at the moment). So Lynda found some images and created that stunning card, I bet his eyes lit up when he opened it Lynda, you are so clever. I honestly think that that gorgeous little boy will be a Model when he is older, he is such a handsome little chap with hair to die for!
Lynda's second project today is absolutely stunning, omg I love it so much, here is Lynda's description........
"It's just a frame from pound shop I covered the back with gesso then put a piece of pretty napkin it some slap it on over it. Stamped a few birds &cut them out glued on . Put some building wax on frame made bunch flowers. Easy peasy xx"
Lynda bought some stamps this week too, WOW that Lady stamping is stunning, I can't wait to see it given the 'Lynda' treatment!!
A lovely sentiment stamp set which has a lovely Font, the other stamp set features two stunning Scenery stamps, I am really looking forward to seeing the cards you make with your new stamps Lynda
Thank you so much for allowing me to share your card, stunning Frame and your shopping Lynda.
Karlie is Dannii's daughter, she is 13 and loves papercrafting, particularly Origami, she has sent me this absolutely gorgeous box that she has made using those beautiful 'Dreaming Florals' papers (picture above). Karlie your box us so pretty, the two papers you have used work perfectly together. Your box is beautifully made, your corners are so neat, you are a very talented crafter Karlie and I cannot wait to see more of your work, keep sending your projects in and I will gladly share them. Thank you so much for allowing me to share your Box.
Michele made this absolutely gorgeous card for a colleague that was leaving yesterday, the lady was so thrilled she came over to thank Michele for her card, so kind and I think a little gesture like that is a huge boost to your confidence. Thank you so much Michele for sharing your work and shopping.
Danielle and her family are going on holiday in just over a week and she decided to make an Album for her youngest Daughter Layla, she used "Grace Taylor' Forest Friends papers and accessories. I will leave Dannii's explanation below.....................
"Were going on holiday in less then two weeks. My youngest daughter Layla has Autism so has a lot of repetitive behaviors. One being she can sit for hours looking at photos on my phone or laptop of our family over and over again not sure how she never gets board lol. So I thought I would make her an album to put some of our holiday pictures in. That way she can look at them when ever she likes. Layla loves animals most of all owls. I only had a bit of owl paper. Anyway here is how it turned out. She absolutely loves it."
Thank you so much for allowing me to share your Album Danielle.
Thanks to everyone for taking part in today's blog post, I genuinely love these weekend posts that feature your work, shopping etc, I think it's one of the things that makes our blog great. Thank you to all of you once again XXX One thing that is frustrating me with the blog right now is the mixed sized fonts, omg it's driving me crazy, it does it automatically and it won't let me change it!!! So annoying! I hope you all enjoy the video tutorial, I have really enjoyed making the videos, they are light-hearted and fun and hopefully informative and helpful in some way.
Have a lovely weekend ladies,
Love and Hugs
