Valentine Panda Cards in Gift Bag

I promised a revisit to the pink panda gift bag of notelets and here it is!

I really love how this simple project turned out using Berry Burst, Gold Foil and Painted Love to really help those pandas pop!

Video tutorial is here so go along and watch that if you want to see how I made these.

Thank you so much for dropping in.

Valentine's Star Fold Triangular Gift Box

For the first of my Valentine's themed paper craft projects I thought I'd share this cute triangular box which closes the same way as the star fold card which was so popular. The video tutorial is here.

I'm not sure if other versions of this are available elsewhere in terms of tutorial but this one I muddled together so that it could be made using one sheet of A4 for the base. So it's my own design which used the star fold technique that I found so striking. It all begins with a piece of 8x11 cardstock and a few squares of painted love DSP.

It's easier to make than it looks and the tutorial for it is available on my channel now but it's more complex to explain in writing so I won't even try. There's quite a bit of cutting and measuring but once you've made your first one that will all seem so much easier.

I gold heat embossed the label on the front and tied it off with some cute crinkle seam binding ribbon in Berry Burst.

Hope you like it.

Double sided step fun fold card

This gorgeous card is oozing with spring time vibes for me and I just love how it turned out, although it took some chopping and changing to get there as the tutorial video shows. You can see that by clicking here.

I used a Tempting Turquoise base and added some DSP from Sweet Soiree I used a sentiment from Just Add Text and used Butterfly Basics to stamp out a butterfly image in Daffodil Delight. I used Bold Butterflies and Butterfly Framelits to cut out a couple of other butterflies and did a quick bit of magic on them with good old Wink of Stella.

I used a little bit of Daffodil Delight double stitched ribbon and also a tiny piece of glimmer paper under the sentiment stamped on Whisper White using Daffodil Delight ink.

I think the whole thing looks really bright and cute and it was all finished off with a couple of rhinestones to accent the butterflies.

Hope this offers some inspiration and my next mini series is going to focus on Valentine's Day projects.

Thanks for dropping in.
