Paper Play Sketches #52

This week's Sketch


I moved the tab around on the sketch, but that's the good thing about Paper Play Sketches - it's just to get you started. It's okay to replace one shape with another one and move stuff around. The point is to have fun creating and crafting.

Always Fun Ch# 25 Anything Goes


Hi, crafters! It's time for our weekly challenge over at Always Fun Challenges!
You can create any type of paper project as long as it follows the weekly theme.

Ch# 25 Anything Goes

My Design Team Project


Don't you just love this little gift box?
You can make 2 of these babies out of one sheet of cardstock.
I saw this over at Pootles' blog who is a UK Stampin' Up demo.
LOVE IT!

To make the little box with triangle sides...
Cut an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper in half at 5 1/2".
Your cardstock will then be 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".
Score on the LONG side at 2", 4", 6", and 8".
Mark at 3" and 7" for reference to create the
diagonal score lines for the triangle sides.
Score the short side at 2".
Designer Series Paper is 3 1/4" x 1 3/4".
(You can cut two of these for the front and back.)

For the triangle sides, Score from the 3" at an angle to the score line.
Do this twice for one side (see photo above).
Repeat for other side.

To see complete instructions, view Pootles' blog post
which includes a YouTube tutorial.

These are so fun

One more again....
I've been posting some of these shaker cards I've made. In total, I made about 30 of them. They are all a little different, but the same basic idea. I love them. Some I have scheduled ahead for different Design Team assignments, but I wanted to go ahead and share this one with you now. These are so easy to make and fun. Thanks for visiting with me today.
