Hi all! Tami Mayberry here with you today to share a quick and easy home decor project perfect for summer. Or if you’re like me and love red, white and blue–all year around! For this project I used my all time favorite Core’dinations Vintage Collection along with a  Darice® paper mache tissue box. The ready-to-decorate tissue box measures 5 x 5-inches so works well with both 6 x 6-inch and 12 x 12-inch cardstocks.

Instructions

Step 1: Trace each side of box onto ruby Vintage cardstock. Note: You can simple measure the sides but I like to trace each one individually and number them to make sure I have a perfect fit.

Step 2: Mark back of each panel 1/2-inch from bottom edge.

Step 3: Place embossing folder onto panel aligning edge with line. This will give you a border along both the top and bottom edge of the panel as shown.

**TIP: When sanding scored or embossed areas always wipe with Core’dinations Dust Buddy to remove extra residue. Note the amount removed here and how it better accents the scored area.

Father’s Day Necktie Gift Bag

Here’s a cute way to give Dad his treats this Father’s Day.  This shirt gift bag is quick and easy enough to get the kiddos in on the action as well.  Think what fun it would be to have an ugly tie contest (and Dad wouldn’t be stuck wearing it!)

shirtFather’s Day Necktie Gift Bag Supplies:

Step 1.  Cut paper 10″ x 11 1/2″

Step 2.  With the kraft side facing up, the the short edge lined up across the top fence, score at 2″.

Step 3.  Turn the paper a quarter turn, counter-clockwise and score at 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 6″, and 8″.  Go to the first large block (between 2 1/2″ and 6″), score every 1/4″ – just down to the horizontal score, to create the pinstripes for the front of the shirt.

Step 4.  Turn the paper over, so that the color is facing upwards.  Score at 4 1/2″ and 10″

Step 5.  Clip the tabs at the bottom.

002

Step 6.  Sand the pin-stripes.

003

Step 7.  Fold along the scores to assemble the bag.

004

Step 8.  Pinch the top of the bag together, and cut an inch in on each side.

005

Step 9.  Fold the tabs in to form the collar.

008

Step 10.  Hand cut a tie.  Adhere to the bag. Secure the collar using double sided tape.

009

Now the fun will just be thinking what goodies to put in your bag!

Flower Pot Card with Hidden Tag

We still have weeks more of winter, but I am already yearning for the warmer days of spring. I adore the bright and beautiful flowers of the season, and find that they lift my spirits like nothing else.  I find that I often start making cheerful projects to help me get over the winter blues.  This fun card is sure to brighten someone’s day as well.

Step 6.  Decorate the tag with flowers, ribbon and vellum sentiment.

Step 6.  Emboss the Valentine heart with the folder.  Sand the raised edges.
