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.
2. Cut down on the score lines to create tabs in the next section, remove the 1/2' section and then section below it then slight trim the next.
3. Keep the next sections in tact and round the corners, this will be the lid or bottom of box.
4. Repeat step 2.
5. Remove the 1/2 tab
6. Add adhesive down the remaining 1/2 strip, fold box over and seal.
To decorate I cut the DSP 4 pieces 1 3/4x 4 3/o make the snowflakes, I used the dies that coordinate and cut them out using the DSP.
I hope you enjoyed the projects I share with you. Be sure to leave a comment and visit everyone's Blog.
