This was the project we made at our recent extravaganza. Made with blackberry bliss cardstock, it took one sheet. The holder on the left had a back pocket to insert the cutlery and a front angled pocket for the menu. Belly band to hold it closed. Little treat holder on the right is personalised with the Metro Alphabet stamp set on silver glimmer scallop circle and has a chocolate truffle with a message inside. The project went down well with the customers.
I saw a décor magazine and a lady had made dresses full size out of paper and I decided to try it with designer paper.
It kind of works, not perfect, but it got me thinking you can do anything with paper. It is 21 inches long used one sheet 12x12 for the skirt and the 2nd sheet 12x12 for the top and straps. I used a dinner plate to shape the sides and the top front of the top and the shoulders I cut down the centre of the paper 4 inches and folded it back. Using the reverse of the designer paper which created a feature. Cut off 1 inches from the skirt and reversed that too with a little crochet lace in between. Pool party seam binding was the best match. Why don't you try it, it was fun
This card is cased from the new catalogue 2014 from Stampin' UpⓇ and the card is slightly different but my version. Some of the items I did not have. It uses champagne glimmer paper and the pieces punched out are put onto the velum card flags, the leaf is from the gorgeous new Kinda eclectic stamp set which we were given at convention in Melbourne, colours are crumbcake card, crisp cantaloupe and pistachio pudding. The sentiment is from Sketched Birthday.
You may not be able to see but the espresso band near the foot of the card is cut with the fringe scissors.
Bought my 92 year young Mum a bird builder punch so rather than just wrap it up made a bag. 3 1/4", wide and 8" long with a 1 3/8" gusset. I think she will like it. Just loving the spiral flower die used it on this as well, rolled the very vanilla and the summer starfruit together for the centre one and summer starfruit single one top and bottom. So easy to make and pretty effective.
These were made with a paper stack pad, 4.5" x 6.5". Scor at 1.5", 3", 4.5", 6" on the landscape side. Turn Portrait and scor at 1.5". Concertina fold the box on the landscape side and push into the new scallop tag punch and punch through all layers. Cut to scorline and make up the base. With the circle framelit make a window in the front panel, punch out a 1" and 1 1/4" scallop to add a frame around the window, and a piece of window sheet on the back. Pinch in the sides to close the bag and tie with ribbon. The label I printed on some whisper white on the computer and cut with the ticket punch along with a red ticked to layer onto it. 2 little caramel eggs inside and they make such a cute gift.
This canister is a Karitane Baby formula can which I covered with Soho Subway designer series paper and put the summer starfruit ribbon top and bottom. The large flower is punched with the blossom punch, the medium one is punched with the pansy punch and the small one is the petite petals. All petals are in very vanilla and sponged with raspberry ripple. Brad them together and then spritz and scrunch. I did the same with the leaves sponged with always artichoke and then spritz and scrunch to achieve a vintage look. It is a door prize for extravaganza as a canister for storage or a craft desk trash can. Why don't you make one and send me a photo?
These are made with the free saleabration designer series papers "sweet sorbet". When you purchase NZD$110 you can choose from the many items in the saleabration catalogue. The finished size of this bag is 5 inches wide and 3 inches deep so they are a good size. Flowers are made with any of the stampin' up!Ⓡ punches and in this case the black & crisp cantaloupe ones are the blossom punch, the island indigo ones are the medium scallop and the summer starfruit one is the pansy punch. Great for markets, lovely gifts, thinking ahead perfect for mothers day. I can give you instructions if you would like, a pleasure or come to one of my classes and I will make them one of the projects
