I created these specifically for my Artfull Crafts Design Team application. They were heaps of fun to do using one of my other all time favourite lines – Cosmo Cricket’s “Snorkel” which I think has now been discontinued 🙁 If anyone has any ribbon or rubons they can sell me I would be soooooo happy!
Party Invitation – Waterfall Card
I took a class at SENZ instructed by the ladies from Kaisercraft and one of the cards they taught was this one. It looks complicated but when broken down into steps it is quite simple. When you pull down on the bottom all the pieces flip over like a waterfall. I simply placed all the info you would normally find on an invitation onto the flaps of the card, and then mounted the whole piece onto double thickness cardstock.
|Gently pull on the tag to see cards flip over from the top|
|I printed the invite information onto clear labels and
stuck them over the card pieces
|I used ribbon and chipboard pieces from the
Snorkel collection to add dimension
In the US there are known as Sour Cream containers! They are really simple to make but you have to make sure you use a VERY permanent adhesive. You can fill them with sweeties or any little gift for your mini party guests!
|Crimping the edges gives a lovely looking finish
and the string adds to the nautical feel
Placecard / Takeaway Windmill
I thought this would be a fun idea that the kids could take home with them
|Standing the windmills in sand is an easy way to stand them up|
Cello bags, jellybeans and a few die cuts from my cuttlebug
|Kids love some treats to take home and this is a really cheap option!|
For this I embossed the base with the cuttlebug. I also used the cuttle bug to cut the circle and then glue dots to hold a piece of patterned paper in the “window”
|I used the ribbon from the Snorkel collection between the
front and back to add some colour to the bookmarks
|LOVE this patterned paper!|
They're so cute….you're quite the crafter!!!
