Twist and Pop Up Card

Twist and Pop Up Card
Hi friends...sharing a Pop Up Card made with new Crealies dies. The front of the card is made using the Crealies  "patchwork" dies which is such a beautiful design from Crealies . I first used the Patchwork dies in this post : Simple Foamiran Flower Tutorial 
Patchwork Card Design
I used the Patchwork die on pattern paper and also cut out some pieces from blue craft foam so that I can pop up parts to give a nice 3 D look. Using matching colored craft foam instead of regular white foam adhesive tape gave a more unique look to the 3 D Jigsaw puzzle effect!

The little pieces do take time to put together but it is so gratifying ...like solving a mini puzzle! 
The handmade foamiran flowers are made with Crealies  flower dies and are super easy and quick to make and here is the Tutorial 
The twist and pop mechanism on the inside was made with the Crealies   Cardzz No.13A and Cardzz No 13 dies [ also featured in these posts : Paper Stars Tutorial and Squash Fold Mini album] and this is how it looked before  assembling.

Twist and Pop Up Cards though super fun are tricky to make and I am so glad Crealies  has come out with dies to make them.

Since the front of my card is floral I continued the floral theme inside too  but added fluttering butterflies on the Twist and Pop element!

The "Smile " is one of my favorite sentiments form Crealies  and is layered on the Crealies  banner dies.

Apron Shaped Gift Card Holder

Apron Shaped Gift Card Holder
Hi friends...sharing an idea to present a gift card in style! 
I used Crealies  gift card slider dies to cut a slot in an Apron shaped New Year Card . I made matching Apron shaped Calendars whose Tutorial I have shared here :DIY Desktop Calendars
Apron Shaped Gift Card Holder
The "Gift Card- from me to you" was stamped using the new Crealies  stamp which is just perfect to use with Gift cards. I created the lovely frame for it using the new Labelzz & Tagzz Crealies  dies which are so beautiful and versatile.

I hope you liked this handmade idea.

Easy Paper Purses Tutorial

 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Hi friends first of all Wish you a very Happy New Year! Sharing a super easy  paper-craft idea.....cute mini purses! These mini purses are made using Crealies  dies with just cardstock and pretty pattern papers.  
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
I sized the purses to hold Visiting/ID/Gift cards but they are useful to hold little gifts or chocolates as well.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Here is how you can make these Paper Purses easily
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
I used the 2nd largest die from the Crealies   Big Labelzz and Tagzz No.13 die set to die cut the base from thick cardstock.
Align the die-cut as shown and score at 2 ½   and 3 inches and then at 5 ½ and 6 inches 
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Fold along the scorelines and you can see your purse taking shape! 
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Decorate the outside of your purse with pattern paper . I used the smaller die from same Crealies  die set to cut the flap part from pattern paper.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
These purses are accordion purses and you can make the accordion sides using 2 strips of card stock measuring 6 x 2 inches and scoring every ½ inch and accordion folding them.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Here is what you will need to make the inside of the purse

  • 2 tiny magnets- position them making sure  you have the poles of the magnets aligned correctly. 
  • Pattern paper - optional
  • Ribbon/Twine for a handle - optional
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Stick the accordions on the sides as shown on the back of the purse
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Once the accordions have stuck firmly stick the other end to the front of the purse.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Line the inside with pattern paper - trimming the paper to fit snugly inside the accordions.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Add an optional ribbon handle for your purse. I threaded the ribbon through eyelets and adhered the ribbon on the inside for a nice finishing touch.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
And your little mini paper purse is ready!
I hope you liked this idea!
