Fancy Fold Blog Hop with Imagine That Digistamp

Hiya hoppers!!  I hope you're here via our blog hop, but if you found me aside from that than I invite you to start at the beginning and join my teammies on a Fancy Fold Blog Hop today!  I have provided the whole hop list at the end of my post *Ü*

I started the hop with a pop out book card & a Christmas cracker treat box over at The Creative Playground.  Now I'd like to share some fun li'l treat bags with you as well as a Tutorial & Free Downloads to make the Christmas set...


I saw these similar (Hershey) Nugget Wrapper Treat Bags on Pinterest last week and thought they'd be so easy and quick to make up using my own digis and papers.  I also made them to print onto the Avery Address Labels 5160 so it's as simple as printing, peeling and sticking around the nuggets!

Nugget Wrapper Tutorial

Supplies:

  • Nugget Wrappers (download here)
  • Nugget Toppers (download here)
  • Avery Address Labels 5160 (or compatible) for the quick & easy way ... OR if you don't already have those, you can print them onto cardstock and cut them out and use tape to adhere
  • Cardstock in coordinating color for the tray, 5.75"x 2.5"
  • White Cardstock for the topper, 8.5x11"
  • Pretzel cello bags
  • Bag of Hershey Nuggets candies
  • Baker's Twine, or ribbon, raffia, etc. enough to tie
  • Hole Punch

Instructions:

  1. Print Nugget Wrappers onto Avery 5160 labels (or white lightweight cardstock) There will be 5 sets of 6 on a sheet (so you can make 5 treat bags with one sheet!)  Wrap 6 nuggets with one each of the 6 designs of labels
  2.  With your coordinating cardstock cut to 5.75"x 2.5", score the two long sides at 1/2" and fold in.  Add your nuggets to the tray and slide tray & nuggets into the pretzel bag.
  3. Print Toppers onto white cardstock, cut apart.  Score & fold in half at 2.5"
  4. Fold the top of pretzel bag over and slip the Topper over excess bag.  Punch 2 small holes near bottom of Topper & run twine through the holes and tie small bow.

Now on to the rest of our BLOG HOP!!

Pop Out Swing Card with Ellie's Pumpkin Costume

Happy Saturday!  I'm excited about the new 3D decoupage (paper tole) kits in my shop!  Hazel Braimbridge is now creating these using my digi sets!  Some of the kits also include extra elements not available in my regular digi stamp sets.

Here is my first time trying the paper tole kits.   I used "Ellie's Pumpkin 3d"


These pieces would be super quick and easy to cut with a cutting machine (ie. Cricut, Cameo, Silhouette, Scan n' Cut etc) which I do not have, so I opted to hand cut each piece with scissors. 

When cutting them out, I also put the # by it so I know which order they are meant to be layered. 


Here she is all layered with pop dots!

TIP: 
 it's BEST to go around every piece with a black felt marker (alcohol based) which I could not find my Memento marker, prolly still in a box somewhere!  But here, you can see all the white edges.... the black would just give it a much nicer finished edge.  

Next, I made my card base with the swing out mechanism.... I followed Amanda's tutorial here.
I used textured white cardstock for all the 3d pieces, front layer and clouds, and designer paper for grass and border.  I sponged the front white panel with teal so the clouds would pop :)  I also added dimensional tape to the back of Ellie's Pumpkin Costume for "extra" dimension (like she needed it right?) 


I ♥ this card fold - so cute and different.

I'm normally the type to put out all the dies and add flourishes and flowers, but since the border on front was so thin, and I couldn't have anything hanging over towards the middle opening, or it would get in the way of the swinging panel.... I let the Ellie be the focus :) 

You can find this 3d kit and more at my shop HERE.  This is a brand new category, so check back as we'll be adding more kits in the near future!  :)  


Gift Box-in-a-Card

Just had to try this style of card - fancy folds are my faves, but this one takes the cake.  Of course, you can't fold and stick it in an envelope to mail, but is great to give in person :)  Panda digi set is one I made - you can find it in my shop Here.




Love You 2 Pizzas Gift Card Holder

With my pizza-loving daughter away at college, I made this Pizza gift card holder to send her.  It was easy to make using the envelope punch board and a tutorial I found on Pinterest.  It was a while ago, so I lost the link.  When I find it again, i'll update my post.  ;)

Tea Bag Dispenser


here is the box all put together:

not the best picture but I added clear stickles to outline the petals
of flower and added crystal flourish gems to 2 corners.


I saw this tutorial at Flower Foot Designs and had to give it a try.  After all, with a new cutter and 12" score board, creating boxes like this is a snap! :)  Well... ok, it did take a bit to figure out, but actually making the folds was easy peasy!  

For the teapot and tea bag, I used my "Floral Tea Set" digis which comes with a floral tea pot as well as a plain one just for this purpose - to paper piece it!!  If I knew before hand what color the tea bag packets were before I started, I might have changed my color combo, lol.  But it's very springy none-the-less. 


I'd like to enter this into the Scor-Pal challenge
 more than 1 score with optional theme "In like a Lion, out like a Lamb" (my spring theme)

Have a great weekend!
