Accordion Tea Holder

Accordion Tea Holder

Simple Boxes & Mini Card This is an amazing little accordion style box tea, treat, gift or ephemera holder. Can be made any size but each little accordion fold holds the item snugly in place.  Also great for using scraps as the accordion takes less paper than a pocket. What you’ll need: 1 3.25″x11″ card stock (box) 2 2″x4.5″ cards stock strips (accordion) 5 2″x3.25″ cards (separators) (I used card stock) 1 1″x9″ (bellyband) A little less than 3″x6″ for the mini card, as long as it is square. Score the box at 3.25″, 4.25″, 7.5″ and 8.5″, the leftover will be your top...

Staggered Edge Keepsake Book

Staggered Edge Keepsake Book

Keepsakes I was inspired by a nature themed keepsake mini album to create my own staggered edge ephemera piece. The inspiration album had a ring binder to lie flat but I didn’t want to use rings so I made a hinge spine that will also lie flat when opened. There is no size for this book as I followed the width of my edge dies and then staggered each page. I made the hinge with card stock but to tuck in to another journal medium weight paper is fine as the card stock adds a lot of bulk. I used...

Hidden Paperclip Brooches

Necessity Is the mother of invention I couldn’t find a clip on earring that was suitable enough for a closure for one of my journals so I decided to try making a closure of my own fashioned after a brooch.

These are just circle hidden paper clips with some fake jewels and sequins glued on to them. I did these with 4 layers but I don’t think it was necessary so 3...

Collage Cards

Theme Cards I’ve been toying with the idea of collage cards for quite a while. I kind of missed the idea of non-fussiness when it comes to card making and had a bunch of little pieces of ephemera that I wanted to use.  I also purchased a new paper stack that is completely out of my comfort zone with barely a vintage tone so before I create more paper scraps I wanted to use what I already have. These cards are made from my pre-cut paper stack only this time I decided to do a series. I think I will...

More Pretty Little Tags Without A Punch Or Die

A Quick Little Tag As I was coming up with shape designs for the last post on tag making without a tag paper punch or die I quickly whipped up these little tags. It’s simply a square with only two edges rounded from a corner round punch and a topper created with a circle die and a standard paper punch. If you need a gift tag in a hurry but want it to be a little special this will do. I think the design would be especially nice at Christmas as it resembles an ornament. It’s also a great way to use...
