Here's to the last Stampin Friends blog hop of 2021. This month we are sharing all projects just in time for the holidays. We all need tags, boxes and bags! So hop along with us and see all the wonderful projects in out Stampin Friends November Tags, Boxes and Bags Blog Hop. I hope you are visiting me from Teri Pocock's blog. Teri's projects are always so beautifully done! Be sure to leave a comment and tell us what you think, and visit Jo Blackman's blog. For a list of hoppers, just scroll down to then end.
I have a fun project set to share with you this month. I used Stampin Up's Santa Express DSP and Santa Express Memories & More Cards (M&M) along with Bermuda Bay, Shaded Spruce Cardstocks, Mint Macaron, Real Red, Petal Pink and Sahara Sand.
Let's talk cards! These cards are the fastest and easiest I ever made, the Memories & More packs include 2 different sizes of predesigned images and greetings, along with a few stickers and embellishments. They are designed for pocket-style scrapbooking but they are perfect to make quick cards. I CASE'd designs from Pinterest, as I stated in my quick video below, this week is a busy week especially with Thanksgiving, that I had a time crunch to be creative.
For the cards, I used the Shaded Spruce Cardstock as a base. I made a sample of 4 cards to share, but will include 2 of each design, for a total of 8 cards to put inside the box.
The Santa card includes a layer of DSP that measures 4x5 1/4. Santa was fussy-cut out placed over a stitched circle, I added a layer of Mint Macaron, just 1/8" wider than the striped M&M card. I also cut a strip of Mint Macaron 1x4 and added on top, added the greeting which is a sticker included in the pack.
Most Wonderful Time of the Year includes a layer of DSP that measures 4x5 1/4, wrap ribbon around the DSP, as if you were wrapping a package, and tie off with a bow. If you want to save on the ribbon, you can just cut strips to just wrap the edges of the paper. Either way works! Add the M&M card on top with dimensionals. Add a few rhinestones to embellish.
C is for Christmas, trim the Pink Snowflake Memories & More card to 4x5 1/4, wrap some ribbon around a 3 1/4x4 1/4 Real Red, and tie in a bow, Adhere the M&M card ontop and pop up with dimensionals onto the cardbase. And for the last card, Merry Christmas, trim trees M&M card to 4x5 1/4, wrap ribbon around, tie with a bow and adhere to the cardbase. Cut a piece Petal Pink, adhere the M&M card ontop and pop up with dimensionals onto the cardbase. Add a few rhinestones to embellish. How adorable! How easy!!!
I made a Explosion Stationary Box to hold the cards and some tags. I had so much fun making this box. I LOVE how it came out. I will admit, I have been intimidated on this for a while, and it is not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be.
First, the tags. The tags are quick and simple. Holly Jolly is simply fussy cut from the Memories & More card pack. Joy, is cut out with a Stitched Oval die. I added the holes and some silver cording! Add a small piece of Basic White to the backside for addresses the tags. And there you have 4 easy tags that took a matter of minutes to make.
There are a few steps to designing the box. I had hope to get my video done, but I will have it by the weekend. I will say it is easier to assemble watching it made then just following the directions. SO I promise a tutorial is coming.
You will need
A few pieces of cardstock, I used Bermuda Bay - 10x12, 6 1/8 x 10 1/8, 8 1/2x4 1/4, 2x5 1/2 and 2x4 1/2
Score the 10" side at 2 & 8 turn and score the 12" side at 5 & 7
Turn back to the 10" side and score 3/4 just down to the horizontal score line, Do the same at 9 1/4
Lid 6 1/8x10 1/8
Score the 6 1/8 x 10 1/8 with the 6 1/8' side at the top score at 2 & 4 1/8 turn to the 10 1/8' side and score at 2 & 8 1/8
Card Divider 8 1/2x4 1/4
Score the 8 1/2x4 1/4 with the 4' side at the top score at 3", turn score at 1/4 and 7 1/4
Pocket 2x5 1/2
Score the 5 1/2' side at 1/2, 1, 4 1/2 & 5
Pocket 2x4 1/2
Scote the 4 1/2 side at 1/2, 1, 3 1/2 & 4
Holding the box paper horizontally, with the 12" side at the top, you need to trim out the little box that is formed between the lines. Repeat on the other side. Now fold on all the score lines. The side that has score lines at 3/4 is the box side and the part the has no 3/4 score lines is that part that pops down when the lid is removed.
Before gluing the box, you will want to add you DSP - it's easier to adhere to the box before it's assembled. Just match up the layers to each side and make the paper is going in the right direction.
Stand up the side that has the 3/4 and glue down the 3/4 strip gets to create support for the sides.
Take the card divider add line it up to the score line (section where we cut the tabs off) and adhere to the sides of the box, do the same with each pocket -
Assemble the lid, as if you were creating a box.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Stampin
Welcome to Septembers Stampin Friends blog hop! This month were saying it with sentiments. Sometimes the words say it all so this month we are letting them shine. I hope you’re joining me from Maureen. Rauchfuss’s blog! Her projects were great weren’t they? Be sure to continue onto Joe Blackman‘s blog and leave us a comment. We love to hear your thoughts on our projects.
For my projects! I did something I normally don’t do and that was because I didn’t have a sentiment for exactly what I wanted. I just grabbed my computer typed up the greeting and printed it out on my printer. Then I took the Stitched with the Whimsy dyes framed it around the greeting and cut it out! I sponge coordinating colors around the words to just give it a little bit of a pop. I used the Bewitching Bundle, stamped and punched out 2 hats with the coordinating punch! I used the second one on the bag below, I colored it in using an Orchid Oasis, Pumpkin Pie, and Parakeet Party, markers stamped the boots and fussy cut them out, I finished the hat off with a bow using the Metallic Mesh ribbon.and finished off with a few rhinestones colored with the same ink!
Next I made this little treat bag out 6x12 sheet of gingham cottage DSP paper. On the 12” side on the top, score at 2 5 3/4 7 3/4 and 11 1/2 and turn on 6” side and score at 2. Cut up on your score lines io to the 2” making sure your 12 inch side of the paper on top. I cut a 2 x 3 3/4 strip again using the gingham cottage DSP and this time I chose the pumpkin pie plaid. I flagged the ends and stapled it to the side of the bag. I took my hole punch and punched out to little holes and added some bakers twine in black to hold the bag shut. I also printed out the greeting and trimmed it to 1 1/2x 2 added some rhinestones.
I hope you enjoy my projects, be sure to leave a comment and visit Jo Blackman’s Blog next.
How crazy that it is June already! I feel like this month has just flown by!!! I guess that can just mean it is time or our monthly bl og hop sooner than later! Right?
Our theme this month is Lots of Layers. Who doesn't love cards with alot of layers and embellishments? I know I do! But in the craziness of life, I tend to make more simple cards, with a few layers and embellishments! I need to get them done!!! I enjoy this theme, because I get to pause and think about designing a card much different than I would. I don't want a card that will be over the top and too difficult to mail. And, a card like this would not be just for anyone, so I will definitely think about who I'd love to give a stepped up layered card to!
To make my projecys today I choice to use the new Stamin Up Suite called Texture Chic. Its a beautiful set with color combo of Petal Pink, Mango Melody, Pool Party, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Gold accents in the DSP . The stamp set has stunning images of different seasons and coordinates with a 19 piece die set.
Alright before we dive into the projects, I hope you visited from Barb Pfeffer's blog and saw her amazing projects. Make sure to visit all participants blogs and if your not sure whose blog you have been too, you can view a list at the end! Be sure to leave a comment! I love hearing what you think!
The card I chose was a Triple Easel card! I just love easel cards, I have never made a double easel card, let alone a triple! So, I gave it a go!!! I thought this type of fun card would definitely showcase layers, the beautiful DSP, Stamp set and dies.
The card came together easier than I thought. Your basically making 3 separate easels and then putting them all together!
Adhere the DSP to the Pool Party layer.
Stamp, diecut and embellish your card front!! Do the same to create the other easel frames
lay each easel folding in half. Add adhesive only to the bottom half (section without the fold) and lay the cardstock on top. make sure to lay the card stock flat ontop (it should cover the all the basic white) but only the bottom half will be adhered.
Adhere each easel ontop of one another like in the picture. Stand each easel up in the angle you prefer then adhere the next one down.
To see how this card comes together, I made a video showing how to assemble from start to finish.
Full disclosure, it's been a while since I recorded, so I'm a little off my game. Its a bit longer than i wanted due to a few interruptions along the way!
I hope you enjoy the projects I shared with you today.
Welcome to our April Stampin Friends Blog Hop. This month we are focusing on flowers. It's spring here and the flowers are starting to bloom. Next month we celebrate Mother's Day so it's only fitting our theme is All About Flowers. Be sure to hop on to each blog, and leave a comment. If you lose your place along the way, there is a list of hoppers at the bottom of each post. I hope you are visiting me from Jo Blackman's blog. Jo's projects are always beautiful! Visit Melissa Thomas's blog after you finish mine!
I decided in this hop, to offer a little blog candy treat. Normally we do not do this as it's a bit much to manage across countries. But I personally wanted to offer one today! I haven't had much opportunity to craft and so I know I am behind at provide more to my followers, so I want to send a thanks in this hop! I will randomly choose one person who comments on this blog post, and I will send you the completed projects shown, as well as, and unassembled set of both that you can stamp your own images on and put together!!! NOTE: you will need to be loacted in the US as I do not ship outside of the country.
I choice to focus on a few Stampin Up products that will be retiring from our current Annual Catalog. I used Prized Peony stamp setup, All Dressed Up Dies and a mix of the In Colors; Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight.
I used a technique on my card that I haven't used in quite some time. I honestly think I used this way back when I joined Stampin UP and was learning all about stamping! It's a very easy technique and it work perfectly so showcase the Peonies in this stamp set.
Basic White 2" at 4 5 1/4" (one for outside of card and one for inside. 4 1/4"x3" and 2"x3 1/4"
Misty Moonlight Cardstock - 8 1/2"x5 1/2" cardbase. 4 1/2"x3 1/4" and 3 1/2"x2 1/4"
Ink Pads: Cinnamon Cider and Misty Moonlight
Stampin Write Markers: Just Jade and Magenta Madness
Take the Basic White layers (leave one of the 4x5 1/4 for the inside of your card) and add a bit of temporary adhesive to the back, I used the 2-way Glue Pen, because it has a temporary hold, and you can remove the layers after you stamp. See photos below.
first decided if I wanted to have a vertical or horizontal layout. For this one, I choice vertical, you can see in my next card I did horizonal. The process is the same regardless of direction.
I stamped the greeting first in Misty Moonlight. Next, stamp and repeat the image all of the layers, making sure to press down firmly so the stamp gets as close to the edge of the layers. It's ok if it doesn't stamp perfectly near the edges, because you will be adding the layer of cardstock and that will hide that. I colored in the flowers with the Magenta Madness and leaves with Just Jade. Carefully remove each layer.
Now you will adhere each Basic White layer to the coordinating Misty Moonlight Layer. Be sure to keep your images in order so when you finish assembling, they all flow and line up with one another.
I started with the 4x5 1/4" layer and adhered it onto the cardbase. And then the other to layers as follows.
I added a touch of Wink of Stella but it doesn't really show on the cards.
I made this card the same way, but horizontal, and I used the Stampin Write Marker in Bumblebee instead of Magenta Madness!
I love both. I will say I love the Bumblebee color. But I have not used the Magenta Madness that much and I was really surprised how pretty this color is. Which one do you like?
At first, I cut out the tag in white and I didn't end up using it, I liked the bag without a greeting.
I made a little tassel from the twine that is included in the Celebrate Flowers Ribbon bundle. And added the white linen bow. You can fill this bag with so much, candy, socks, little candles, bathsoaps. I mean so much! It's a cute little bag.
In my picture above, I filled some shredded paper, then a little tissue pack, lip balm and hand sanitizer. And I still have room for more. Love it!!!
Thank you for stopping by and hopping with us! I hope you love all the projects we have shared for you! Be sure to stop by everyones blogs, and leave a comment.
And remember, I will randomly choose one person who comments on this blog post, and I will send you the completed projects shown, as well as, and unassembled set of both that you can stamp your own images on and put together!!!
Thank you for your support!
Have a wonderful day and happy stampin
Welcome to the 2022 Stampin Friends March Blog Hop! We have a fun theme planned by starting off the year celebrating all Life's Occasions. This month we are sharing monochromatic projects. I love making monochromatic cards, focusing on 1 color and making it shine! There are so many possibilities! At first, I was going to create something using a green, green is my favorite color. But I decided to use Stampin Up's retiring In Color BumbleBee and paired it with the Pansy Petals Suite. I love all the In Colors, but I will probably miss BumbleBee the most! I used it all the time and will most likely keep using it!
Be sure to hop along to each participant's blog, you can find a list of our blog hop participants below. After viewing my projects, continue on to Teri Pocock's blog to see her awesome projects!
As you go through the hop, if you feel like you could do this, send me a message! We are always looking for crafters who love to create and share!!!
Be sure to leave comments along the way, we love to hear what you think!!!
I love how my card came out! It is super easy!! It's a fun fold card. I'm calling it a front-panel card. I don't know if that is the actual name, but it works for me!
You will need:
BumbleBee cardstock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and 2 3/4x11 (score on the 11' side at 5 1/2 and then fold in half)
Basic White cardstock 4 x 5 1/4 and emboss with the Gingham Embossing Folder.
Basic White 2 1/2x 5 1/4 and piece for stamping greeting
Pansy Petals DSP 2 1/2 x 5 1/4
Pansy Dies - cut out 2 pansies from the DSP
Stamp greeting and punch out with Elegant Punch
Whisper White Ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack
Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad and Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
Adhere the Basic White layer to the Bumble Bee piece.
Adhere the DSP to the top of the folded Bumble Bee strip, adhere the Basic White piece to the inside.
Tie a bow to the top of the strip. Adhere the strip to the Basic White, centering onto the layer.
Arrange the pansies and greeting onto the front and a few Basic Rhinestones to embellish.
And that is it! It is that easy!!
For my project, I decided to make a little paper basket. I call it a Springtime Basket. It can be used for Easter also or any occasion really. It is super easy and super quick to make!!! And all you need is 1 sheet of cardstock.
Refer to the pictures below,
Cut the cardstock into 3 pieces, first, with the 8 1/2" side at the top, cut a strip at 1 1/8"
Turn the remaining piece so that the 11" side is at the top and cut at 7 7/16." Set the smaller piece aside for decroating or another project.
Take the larger piece and score at 2 7/16" on both sides, then turn and score again at 2 7/16" on both sides, you will have 9 squares.
Cut 2 score lines from the bottom edge to the intersecting score line. Then repeat on the opposite side, See pictures below.
I also created a quick video demonstrating how I made, the basket.
Cut 4 pieces of DSP at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" adhere to the 4 corners of the cardstock.
Take the long strip and mark 1/2 inch on each end. Line that mark to the edge of the middle square, either adhere or staple, repeat the same on the opposite side.
Add tear tape to the edges of the 4 corners. Bring them together lining up the 2 points and adhere. Repeat on other side.
Use the Pansy Patch Bundle, and stamp and cut the Pansies, I used So Saffron, BumbleBee and Daffodil Delight
I haven't filled my basket; my plan was to make a bunch for all my co-workers for Easter. But I am still deciding what I am going to use it for! I might fill it with candy for Easter, office supplies like post-its paper clips or a tissues, lotion and tea for a care basket. Whatever I end up with, I will make sure to post an updated picture!
What do you think? So cute right??? I included the verison I created in the video at the end of the post!
Which color is your favorite!
Welcome to the 2022 Stampin Friends Blog Hop! We have a fun theme planned by starting off the year celebrating all Life's Occasions. I chose Birthdays to focus on for my projects. I like starting the year by getting ready for all the upcoming birthdays.
Before we get started, you can find a list of our blog hop participants below. Be sure to continue on to Jean Beaulieu's blog to see her awesome projects! Leave a comment, I'd love to hear what you think!!!
For my cards, I chose a monochromatic look. I made 6 cards, 2 in each color & design.
I used the new Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration DSP called Simply Marbelous. The colors are Misty Moonlight & Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo & Blush Bride and Smoky Slate & Gray Granite. The stamps and dies are from the Color & Contour Bundle.
Each card measures 3 3/4x5 1/2 over all.
Cardstock 7 1/2x5 1/2 score on the 7 1/2 side at 3 3/4
DSP Layer 3x5 1/4
Basic White Die Cut - I used the middle size die in the Scalloped Contour Dies.
Basic White for flowers - Stamp in black and add layer in the matchin ink color cut out with the coordinating die
Cardstock diecut - I used the smallest size die in the Scalloped Contour Dies.
took the Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes and decorated it to match the cards. For the box I used the colors Bumblebee and So Safron. I made the horizontal to fit the lid of the box.
DSP 3 3/4x5 1/2
Basic White Die Cut - I used the middle size die in the Scalloped Contour Dies.
Basic White for flowers - Stamp in black and add layer in the Bumblee ink and cut out with the coordinating die
Cardstock diecut - I used the smallest size die and So Saffron in the Scalloped Contour Dies.
For the greeting, I only colored the For You in black in before stampin.
The cards will fit snug in the box, so to make it easier to take them out, I added a little tab. I had a strip of cardtock left over from the cards 1x11
I folded about an inch and glue it down to the inside of the box, added the cards and then folded the strip over a bit, and trimmed it down.
Welcome to what is the last hop for Stampin Friends in 2021. But don’t worry we will be back with new projects in January 2022. For November hop we are Celebrating the Season wherever we are. I hope you can from Maureen Rauchfuss’s blog! Her projects are amazing. If not be sure to visit, And make sure you visit after mine.
My projects use the suite from Stampin Up called Gingerbread and Peppermint. You can find this Suite in the Holiday Mini Catalog.
I decided to make a slimline card,
I used Crumb Cake for the card base 8x9 1/4
score on the 8” side at 4.
For the layers I used Old Olive 3 3/4x9
then I layered 2 pieces of DSP 3 3/4x 4 1/2. Adhere one to the top half of the old olive and one for the bottom half.
You will have a piece of CS left from the crumb cake and old olive. Cut the old olive to 2x3 3/4 and layer the piece of crumb cake 1 3/4x3 3/8.
I used the coordinating sides from the suite to cut the shapes from the DSP. I stamped the greeting in real red, Add the ruffled ribbon in a bow and added some rhinestones to finish it off. I also cut a few more shapes to line the inside of the card.
See photo below.
I plan to add a gift card as well. I will add to a large cellophane bag and tie with a bow before giving as a gift to my son’s bus driver.
I hope you enjoyed my projects. Be sure to continue to Melissa Thomas's Blog. Her projects are beautiful.
Thanks for joining us today. I hope we inspired you to create!
Happy Holidays and Happy Stampin
Welcome to our October Stampin Friends Blog Hop!!! I am super excited to share my projects. Our theme this month is 'Give Thanks'! I hope you follow and hop along with us.
If you came from Maureen Rauchfuss's blog, thank you for continuing and be sure to hop to Teri Pocock’s blog after viewing mine!!
Let's hop right in! I am just so excited about my projects...did I say that already??
Awhile back, when I still had in-home classes and tables at craft fairs, I had created a workshop for seasonal 12x12 Samplers! It was a big hit! I then continued on to make several holiday samplers (Valentine's, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween and Christmas, and most recently I was ask to make custom monthly samplers for wonderful customer, who wanted to be able to change her Sampler frame monthly!! Now after a few years of having my original ones displayed, I decided to update my fall one to a "thankful" one. I have included a copy of the samplers I have made at the very end of the blog post.
I create a Fun-Fold card to match. I will be giving this as a gift to my mother who just is now displaying a sampler I made.
I absolutely love fall, it's my favorite season, I truly enjoy when the weather gets cooler and the leaves change. I used the Stampin UP Harvest Meadow Suite and Pretty Pumpkins Bundle for my projects.
The card is a 'W' Fun-Fold Card. It looks like a W when the card is opened! It is SO easy to make.
You will need the following:
Cardbase: Misty Moonlight 8 1/2x11 cardstock, cut at 4 1/2x11 score on the 11' side at 5 1/2
Misty Moonlight 1 3/4x11 strip score on the 11' side at 2 3/4, 5 1/2 & 8 1/4
Misty Moonlight (4) at 2 1/4x2 3/4
Basic white (3) at 4 x 5 1/4 and (2) at 2x2 1/2
Harvest Meadow DSP 3 3/4x5 and (2) at 2x2 1/2
Cork Specialty Paper 3x 3/12
Attach the 3 3/4x5 piece of DSP to the Basic White layer, before adhering to the cardbase, be sure to wrap the Diamond Weave Ribbon and tie and bow on the side.
I used the Pretty Pumpkins set to stamp the pumpkins. I used the Pumpkin Pie and Just Jade Stampin Blends to color them and cut them out with the Dies. I added some loops of the Gold Cording in-between the pumpkin layers.
For the inside of the card, attach the 4 x 5 1/4 Basic White to each side of the cardbase. Fold the 1 3/4 strip, accordion fold, and attach at each edge of the basic white. See Photo Below. Attach the 2 smaller DSP pieces to the Misty Moonlight. Stamp on the Basic Whiteand then attach to the Misty Moonlight
I created a video below, to show how to assemble the card!
I hope you enjoyed the projects I have made for October's Stampin Friends Blog Hop!

Wow, how is it already August 27th? Does anyone else feel like this month just flew right by? Like, many of you, I'm in back to school mode! I almost forgot about the hop...thank goodness I didn't. I look forward to this each month and I hope you do too!
This months hop is All About the Paper! I love Stampin Up's DSP. At times I do not even use it because I love it too much to cut up! This year, when I have had the time, I have focused on using supplies I've had on hand...and that includes all my paper. I am exciting this month to share with you these projects featuring some new DSP.
Grab a favorite drink, sit back and hop along! There are so many fun projects featuring paper in this Hop. If you joined me from Teri Pocock's blog...thank you for continuing on. And after viewing my blog, be sure to continue to Tiziana Milano's.
I am really exciting to share with you the projects for this month's Blog Hop. They both feature products from Stampin Up's Annual Catalog. I used the Pattern Party DSP pack which is an exclusive pack of paper for hostesses only. It's a fun pack of paper that has colorful patterns on one-side and black and white on the other. I also kept the stampin to a minimum to really showcase the paper.
I made a Fun-Fold Pop-Up Card - I never made one before and wanted to try it out!
Pale Papaya card base 4 1/4x11 - on the 11' side score at 4 1/4 and 5 1/2
DSP 6x6 and 4x5 1/8
Pale Papaya Ribbon
Basic White for stamping
DSP to punch out hearts
Please refer to the video I provided for card assembly
I also made an envelope to match! I used my retired Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board. Just follow for a 4 1/4x5 1/2 card.
I love the bag its a great size - 3x7x 1 1/2 you can fill it with lots of treats. It come together to so quick. So if you needed to make a bunch, you could get them done easily.
DSP 9 1/2x10 be sure the pattern is facing in the right direction and that is your 9 1/2 side
on the 9 1/2 side score at 1 1/2, 4 1/2, 6 & 9
on the 10' side score at 1 1/2 and 8 1/2
Fold and burnish your score lines
Decide what side you want to be visible and fold down one of the 1 1/2 score lines to show the other side of the paper.
Trim up the bottom score lines and assemble as you would a box/bag.
Refer to the video for assembly directions!
Today I am sharing with you a couple of my favorite projects! These are projects I have been making them for many years. This month's Stampin Friends Blog Hop Them is Rewind & Redo. Take something old and redo it to something new. How fun is that???
If you hopped from Tiziana Milano's blog, wasn't her projects AMAZING?? Be sure to continue to Kim Lamos after mine. And be sure to leave a comment I'd love to hear what you think!
We have a packed hop with amazing projects so be sure to visit everyone. I have a provided a list of hoppers at the end of this blog.
I knew right away the card I wanted to redo was the Triangle Flap Pocket card. And a go to box that I've made in different ways over the years. Now sadly I have searched for my original project and couldn't locate one. Which is crazy because I've made it so often!
I used the brand new, not yet, available, Frosted Gingerbread Suite....It's just so stinkin' fun.
I have never been successful baking or decorating gingerbread, so this suite is so easy to create fun designs!!
To make the card I used Real Red Cardstock as my base and Old Olive for the card insert.
You will need:
2 pieces of Real Red 4 1/4x11 and 4 1/4x 6 1/4
Old Olive 4 x 5 1/4
Basic White 3 3/4x 5
DSP 4 x 5 1/4 - cut on the diagonal.
Some scrap pieces of Cinnamon Cider, Old Olive and Real Red and Basic White
Take the largest piece of Real Red and with the 11" side at the top of the Simply Scored Score Board, score at 5 1/2
Using you Stampin Trimmer, line up the top of the score line to the bottom corner in the cutting line and cut...this will make a triangle flap. See picture.
Take the smaller piece of Real Red and with the 6 1/4 side at the top score one side at 3/4
Then line up the bottom edge of the score line to the bottom corner in the cutting line and cut the triangle.
Add adhesive to the 3/4 score section and adhere to the edge on the back of the large piece and fold over to the front, this will create the second flap. Now, take your triangles cut from the DSP and adhere to the flaps, reversing one side of the DSP.
