Baby Card

 

“I fell in love with those 2’’ Baby tags, perfect to make cards for newborn babies, I added a journaling tag. I love the shape and playing with foam square adhesives.”

Thank you card

Don’t put those Christmas papers and embellishments away just yet! You might be tempted to but you can still use them to make your Christmas thank you cards. I know I always have quite a few to make after the holiday season. I kept this card simple by layering some patterned paper from the Jingle Bells collection, along with a Santa Claus vintage circle tag and some punched stars.

Treat Bags Tutorial

  1. Place a glassine bag (the ones I used measure 3.75″ x 7″) inside an embossing folder and run it through your embossing or die-cutting machine. If you don’t have embossing tools, you can skip this step, but I love the textured effect on the glassine bag.
  2. Cut pattern paper to 4″ x 4″ squares. If you’re using Pretty Little Studio 8×8 papers, you can get 4 squares out of each sheet.
  3. Score the square at 2″ and fold.
  4. Use an edge punch or die to create a scallop shape at the bottom of the front fold.
  5. Insert treats into glassine bag and fold the top over once to seal. Place the folded treat bag topper over the top of the fold so it comes down as far as possible. Staple each side (about 1/4″ in from the edge) to hold topper in place.
  6. Now we need to cover the staples. Cut a few strips of coordinating pattern paper that are slightly wider than your staple and 4″ long. I chose to layer mine — one on top of another — for a little extra pop of color.
  7. Adhere the strip over the staple on the front of the topper.
  8. Tie a length of twine around the bag and knot it in the front.
  9. Punch a hole in the 2″ Birthday Word Circle Tag and slip it onto the end of the twine, tying a bow at the top to secure.
  10. Add your message to the tag. I had my daughter write the sentiment on each one so that it would be in her handwriting.
