Party Mixers Candle Wrap

Hi All! Tami Mayberry here with you today to share another quick and easy project brought to you by Core’dinations. I am a huge fan of old blue mason jars and have collected several dozen over the years. Last Summer my daughter got married and we created these jars for both centerpieces with candles and hanging jars that lined the isle filled with baby’s breath. They are quick and easy to make and add a beautiful touch to any even or decor.

Bon Voyage Card: Tearing Technique

One of my favorite techniques with Core’dinations is the tearing technique.  I just love exposing the inner core and it works so perfectly with the ombre look which is so on trend right now.  I used this technique to create my sky.

graduation_party_centerpiece_foldStep 3:  Glue shapes with the right side in together leaving a bit of a gap on the inner corner.  When all six are glued together you will get your ornament shape.

graduation_party_centerpiece_glueStep 4:  Thread ornament shapes and larger title shapes onto dowel.

graduation_party_centerpieceStep 5:  To create band on mason jar begin by cutting a sheet of the Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft Core paper to fit your jar.  I cut mine at 1 1/2 inch by 10, and emboss if desired.

Step 6:  In order to keep your embossing pattern consistent throughout your longer projects, you can cut a slit in the top of the folder allowing the paper to slide through.  I love this technique for embossing longer strips.

graduation_party_embossed_ringStep 7:  Simply wrap your mason jar with the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Metallic Paper and insert your dowel with the ornaments.  I used a bit of krinkle paper to hold everything together, but almost anything would work, from pebbles to marbles to little hard candies.

3D Paper Birthday Mug Box

Hi Core Fans!  It’s Joann and I am happy to be here with you today to show you a cool gift box you can create using your Core Cardstock and fabulous Core Pattern paper.  This is a fun little gift that you can create for that beverage lover in your life :)  I made this for my son’s 24th Birthday and included some gift cards inside.

To make this project follow these steps.

Step 1.  Start by cutting the pieces for your Beer Mug out of Core Essentials Neutrals and the decorative panels out of Core Basics – Patterns Brown Plaid and Core Basics – Patterns Brown Houndstooth.  Finally the White foam is cut from Core Polka Dot Pops White Pearl with White Polka Dpt Pops.

Tip: When making 3D projects I find it best to use a heavy weight cardstock.  Core Essentials Cardstock, both the single sheets as well as the packaged booklets, are absolutely perfect in weight.  They not only stand up well but also allow you to have a nicely defined scor line.  You want that nice sharp edge to show off your beautiful work!!

Joann-Larkin-3D-Beer-Mug-Step1

Step 2.  Scor on the scor lines and fold all of the pieces making sure to use your bone folder for a nice sharp line.  Once you have all your scor lines done it will be easier to attach the decorative panels first and then assemble the mug.

Step 3.  Finish by assembling the top of the mug and add a sentiment.  For this project I used the Spellbinders Birthday Cake die.  For detailed assembly of the Beer mug, the creator of the cut file has a good tutorial here so be sure to check it out.

Step 3: Cut out a two inch circle from your scrap cardstock.  Fold it in half and then half again and then half one more time. This will give you 8 lines to use as guidelines for where to place your triangles.

Step 4: Glue the triangles to your circle and then attach that to the back of your rosette.
