Gift Card Flower Bouquet

It is the end of the school year for us.....finally! I can't wait to have my kids home for the summer. I love lounging in PJ's all day, and taking fun day trips to the beach or museums. I'm sure those days will include sibling arguments and a messy house but I choose not to think about that. I have tons of kids activities pinned on Pinterest for those moments I will want to pull my hair out. And when I need a break I will lock myself in my bedroom and skim the internet for new card ideas. That's my plan anyways, we shall see what happens....

Anyways, with the end of the school year comes class parties, school events and teacher gifts. I was room mom for one of my boys classrooms and my co-room mom and I decided on a gift card bouquet for her. It was really fun to put together. I used all of my favorite punches and some techniques I learned from Carrie Cudney herself at the SU convention last year. You can see a quick tutorial on one of the flowers I made here.

The rest of the flowers were just three layers of the Blossom punch with either a scallop punch in the center or a die-cut flower. I know we sold a package of flowers last spring but I can't remember what they were called. As a replacement you could use one from the Bloomin Bouquet project kit we have available right now. So I assembled the flowers and used a glue gun to attach them each to a clothespin mounted on a bamboo skewer. And I did cover the clothespins with gumball green dsp as well. The clothespins held the gift cards nicely. The skewers were pushed into some flower foam and I tied some ribbons to them. Lastly, I covered the bottom with Hershey Hugs.

The words are from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set and I just flagged the ends of the strip. Once she uses the gift cards she can replace them with pictures. Very versatile.
It's a lovely gift for a fantastic teacher.

stamp set: Fabulous Phrases
ink: chocolate chip
paper: various retired dsp; silver glimmer paper and whisper white cardstock
accessories: blossom flower punch, 7/8" scallop punch, pansy punch, 1-3/4" circle punch, pear pizzazz chevron ribbon, retired organza and celery ribbons, and basic rhinestones

I love these because they come in every single SU color! I always have just the right shade and they always match my card stock. And let's face it, that's what we LOVE about Stampin' Up!.
There is still room in my Saturday class if you are interested. It's at 10am, at my home please RSVP as soon as you can. The cost for supplies is $15.

I will be repeating the class in August but have not yet determined the dates, please let me know if you are interested.

Soft Suede, Poppy Parade and Pool Party

Such a lovely combo that I never would have paired if it weren't for the Sale-A-Bration designer series paper. This paper is so pretty! I can't put it down and I want to use it on every project I make. I have a card sample for you today that is a variation on one I already did. I have stopped putting greeting onto my card samples as I never have the right one when I need it. I just put my verse on when I am ready to send my card.
Stamp set: Fresh Vintage
Paper: soft suede, pool party and whisper white cardstock; everyday enchantment dsp (SAB only)
Ink: soft suede
Accessories: decorative label punch, 3/4" circle punch, blossom punch, clear buttons, white bakers twine, and dots embossing folder.
This box was adapted from Mary Fish, who got it from another demo, who got it from another demo :). I tweaked it a bit on the lid measurements but everything else is the same. The candies were wrapped using the dsp. My tag was made with the Labels framelits die.
My lid measuresments: 8-1/4" x 8-1/4" and is scored at 1/2", 3-3/4", 4-3/8" and 7-3/4". It is hard to score on acetate, it's more of a guideline. You will need your bone folder to really crease the lines. Adhere it with sticky strip.

Box measurements:
10.25 x 5.25 scored at 1" and 1/2" all the way around. Notch your corners and fold it up. You can use sticky strip or Tombow Multi (what I used).

3" x 10" scored at 3-1/4", 3-3/4" and 4-1/4" from each side. I did adhere the insert to the box bottom so it would stay in place.

Lastly I have this adorable jar filled with chocolate. The jar is from Ikea, love these.

Designer Cuts Box

I am in love with the NEW Designer Cuts cards in the Occasions Mini, if you have been to any of my classes in the last month you will have gotten to use them. They are so elegant and quick. Well, this sweet box here was made with a single Designer Cuts card.  I personally love it when the products I buy are good for many other uses. So to get on with it here is what you do.

Open up your Designer cuts card and lay it down on your Simply Scored board with the line running the same way as the scores. I made a score line 1/2" from the center line on either side. So you will have a total of 3 lines. 
Next turn your card 90 degrees and score it at 1" on both sides. You will then cut slits for your tabs from the outside in at the box bottom up to the lines that you just scored. Your box should look like the picture here. The box then folds up. I added a piece of designer series paper on the inside laser cut side before I assembled my box. You can assemble your box with sticky strip or Tombow Multi (what I used).
Once assembled, I tied a ribbon around it and stamped a cute tag. I picked up the tag at a local office supply store, they sell products from my favorite crafter now. 
The box will fit a small gift or even a set of 3 x 3 note cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

How to make SU! Paper Peonies

 Don't you just love the paper peonies on the front of the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog? I do, they are so beautiful and fresh! Here is a quick tutorial on making them. I attached mine to bamboo skewers in the photo, but you can use floral wire as well. If I had some I would have used that.

Step 1: 
Punch 3 scallop circles using the 2-3/8" scallop circle punch.

Step 2:
Spray the circles very lightly with water to soften them. Scrunch them up into balls and work them until they are mostly dry. If they are too wet they can tear in the next step, trust me I know ;)

Step 3
Unfold them carefully and find an edge where you can easily pull them apart. You will end up with six scallop circles all together.

Step 4
Lay all of your circles one on top of the other and secure them with a brad. I chose to layer them fuzzy side up.

Step 5
Pull the layers one at a time up into the center.

Step 6
Fluff your flower into the peony shape.

3 x 3 Note Card box

Here is a look at the new color Pool Party In Color for 2011-2013. I made this cute little box to hold some 3x3 notecards. The stamped flower you see on the front of the box is a new Hostess stamp set available this year. Below you will find the complete tutorial on this cute little number.

This year the hostess program has changed, in the past hostesses were able to pick a level stamp set and had additional hostess dollars to spend. This year hostesses are only given Hostess Dollars which they can use to purchase Hostess only sets at a deep discount or to use on catalog merchandise of their choice. In addition when a hostess reaches just $400 in orders she can choose an item in the catalog at 50% off! I am really excited about this new Hostess Program it is much more versatile.

Here is the tutorial on the card box above, it is so simple and a cute gift. The box is my own design and just a basic box template.

You need a piece of cardstock 6-1/2" x 7-1/2" scored all around at 2-1/4". You then cut along the score lines from the outside in. I cut in on the 7-1/2" side.

Next, fold the flaps in and glue them to the inside, creating the box. I use the Tombow liquid glue because it holds the best for me.

Decorate your box as desired. The cards I saw somewhere and thought they were so cute. I can't however find where I saw them to give proper credit. If it's your original design let me know :) **edited to add** Apparently I saw it in the IB&C page 158.

Stamp Sets:
Posy Punch (hostess)
Tiny Tags
Pool Party, So Saffron smooth stock; Whisper White textured card stock; So Saffron and Only Orange Patterns dsp
Early Espresso
Pool Party
1/2" scallop dots ribbon in Chocolate Chip
Fancy Flower punch
1" circle punch
3/4" circle punch
Itty bitty Shapes circle punch
