Debbie Stadard here with an easy step-by-step on how to create a festive gift bag and tag for the that next big day of yours! Don’t be afraid to emboss that Glitter Silk. It looks amazing!
1. First off pick a little box – as you can see I have had this one awhile but that’s ok – I’m covering it. Using the wrong side of your paper mark the bottom of the box and the top of the box and cut out. The great thing about Glitter Silk is that the back is white so it’s easy to make lines. Then cut a smaller piece to fit in the bottom of the box.
2. Now glue all the pieces to the box.
3. Measure around the box and the height of the bottom of the box and cut. Glue to sides holding to get a tight fit. If you have to cut a second strip it’s easier to cut one side and then piece it that way.
4. Do the same thing for the top of the box.
5. Now because I didn’t want my seam to show on to I used these pearls from Paper Studios. They worked well on here because they are all attached in one long line so you can do an entire side at one time.
6. Then I used a Spellbinder’s die to cut my flower and leaves and embossed the them. I used my Xyron 250 to run the leaves through and attach to the top of the box and then some Glue dots to add the flower after I added a brad.
7. Now to make my bag I used the rest of the turquoise sheet. I embossed it (you don’t sand Glitter Silk due to the glitter finish) and attached it and another embossed purple strip. Then I made a banner sentiment using the green and layering it with some turquoise and added a David Tutera Sentiment.
8. Tie a festive bow to the top and you have a great gift set!
here to share a gift bag that will make a lasting impression for the receiver. Do you have a special occassion this summer;? Here is a quick up-scaled presentation to add lots of sparkle to the party.

Suzanna Lee here and I wanted to share with you this pocket page layout created entirely from Core’dinations cardstock. Not a lock of patterned paper in there. Well, there is a smidge of vellum! Guess how many different types of Core there are there? My point being, you don’t have to go out and buy those fancy cards when you can create your own cards from cardstock! Different types and the textures you can create with die cuts, embossing and stamping provide you with all the spice and variety you need!
Embossing and sanding with letter stickers. Overlay color on color for some variation.
Layer Whitewash on Core Essentials that has been embossed and sanded. Layer Gemstones on vellum and stamp.
The man and women were created with the likeness of the bride and groom in mind. I used Maya Road acetate shaped and rubbed with my Sand It Gadget on the paper leaving the outline of the people. I pushed down on the edges in order to create the slightly embossed look.
Did you guess correctly? Seven, 7 types of Core’dinations cardstock in that pocket page!

I hope you have your creative juices ready! Today we have a super cool project for you from Ava Gavloski…and it’s PINK!!! I love me some pink when all you see is red and green!
Ava here to share the spirt of gift giving which is in high gear and the countdown to Christmas Eve Church services with family gatherings are fast approaching. To-day, I would like to share something new that has caught my eye and I hope to experiment with in the new year. Jewelry making is an unlimited vast area of artistry that could lead to many journeys of happiness.
I want to share my Core’dinations Cardstock beads with you and show how you could make your own gift for someone special.
I have created a bracelet from Core’dinations Cardstock.
Collect your supplies and lets get started. You can make beads with all types of materials and for today, I will share my Core’dinations Cardstock version. I used 2 types of paper strips: 1 at 7.5 ” and the other a tapered strip at 5.5″. Each strip of paper started out at 1/2″ wide.
Then the experimental step is next. You can play with the size of cardstock bead you want and the type of tool you use to roll your bead with. I used knitting needles at size 9 or with a smaller diameter. Start with 1 strip and glue it down, then add the tapered strip of paper over top ending with the tapered end as you finish rolling the paper.
Roll and glue your beads, add an eyelet if you wish and some glitter.
Design your bracelet and string your beads and embellishments onto elastic cord or a string of choice.
The possibilities are endless. Enjoy the process, experiment and start making a stash of beads that will always been on hand for a quick gift giving surprise to someone.
