Step 1. This bag is easy to create.  Simply cut it out using the bracket window box #19287 from the Silhouette Store.  I’m using a piece of Core’dinations Teal Quatrefoil paper #GX-2300-66.

 Step 2. I re-sized the bracket area to approximately 3.1 x 3.1 so I could glue a Core’dinations vellum quote inside.

Step 3: Using Zip Dry Paper Glue, I glued the vellum quote inside the bag.

Step 4: Fold the perforated lines, add a few dabs of glue and a ribbon and you’re done!

Now it’s all ready for sharing a delicious treat or small gift.  I chose a blue that’s a great shade for winter themes but it’s easily changed for any occasion!

Have a wonderful winter!  I hope you enjoyed this project!  When I’m not here you can find me at JoysLife.com!

Step 3: Using a bone folder, score the tag at 2-1/2″, or at the best place so that it bends nicely on your specific bottle type.

Graphic 45 Christmas Wall Art

Hi everyone, It’s Joann with you today to share a fun Christmas project.  This week Core’dinations and Graphic 45 are doing a blog hop, stop by and check it out for a chance to win some great prizes.  With the Christmas season fast approaching I remembered one of my favorite traditions.  Every year the family goes to see the local production of the Nutcracker so I dug out my G45 Nutcracker paper collection and this is what I came up with.

Step 2. Assemble your shadow boxes.  Each of the boxes except for the largest one is 2 pieces the same size so matching them up is easy.

Step 3. Attach the largest frame to the front panel and then start attaching the individual shadow boxes starting in a corner and working your way out.

Step 5.  Cut a piece of your Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions and using your Sand It Gadget, sand all the panels to show off that lovely embossing. Don’t forget yo use your Dust Buddy to clean-up the dust!  Once you are finished your sanding attach the pieces to the front of the assembled unit and start decorating!

3D Pilgrim Hat Box

Hi there Core Fans!  It’s Joann and I am really excited to be here today to share a fun 3D table top decoration which I think is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving season!  I loved this design so much that all I wanted to do was emboss and lightly sand the fantastic Core Cardstock for a bit of a Vintage look and feel.  After you lightly sand your paper don’t forget to use your Dust Buddy to clean away the dust!

To make this hat follow these steps.  To make things clearer I am showing the steps before the embossing was done.  Please emboss and sand your paper first.

Step 1. Cut the lid, base and brim out of black cardstock. The belt around the lower part of the hat from gray cardstock and the buckle from yellow cardstock.

Step 1

Step 2. Score all lines so they fold into the the back of the paper and fold the hat into position so you can see where to glue.

Step 2

Step 3. Apply a liquid adhesive to all the tabs.

Step 3

Step 4. Carefully worked your way around the hexagon attaching the sides of the lid.

Step3a

Step 5. Build the inside piece of the box the same way and place the base inside the lid to help it keep it’s form.   Apply adhesive to the tabs and carefully center it on the brim.

So who is ready for Valentines Day? We have been working over time here at Core’dinations getting ready to bring out the lover in all of us.  We hope you can find some great ideas for your family and friends over the next few weeks just in time for February 14th. There is nothing better than a handmade gift for someone you love.

Starting off the Inspiration du jour is Melissa Oliviera with the cutest little treat bag ever!

And with the same soft colour palette she made this cute box filled with Valentine Cards. This would be perfect for a baby or bridal shower, too! The touch of the Chocolate Box cardstock is perfect!

What goes great with Valentine’s Day? Chocolate Mocha does! We are gearing up for the big day in February already.

Debbie Standard created this adorable card utilizing some of the very versatile Chocolate Mocha cardstock from the Core Essentials line.

Some subtle sanding and a Cuttlebug embossing folder makes this card wonderful and unique at the same time.
