I have an event coming up and have been thinking about a little hostess gift. The other morning I saw a video from Ronda Wade where she created a darling note card box from one sheet of card stock. Love at first sight! And an answer to my query.
Isn’t this so cute?
Design Notes for Note Card Box:
First things first. You have to have a Stampin’ Trimmer or Simply Scored Board to make this box. There is a fair amount of scoring for this. Here are my scoring/cutting samples.
(Sorry, not sure why I turned the paper after I added the cutting lines.)
I added some Tear & Tape as indicated.
Just fold the sides over, and then adhere with the Tear & Tape. I added Designer Paper before I assembled but it really doesn’t matter. It’s easy to add after you assemble the box.
The decorative part was fun. You know how I love to heat emboss and used this as an opportunity to dig out some copper accents. The ribbon is from the Tea Room suite and the edge of copper was just too perfect. One option for the box is to wrap the ribbon around and then untie it to open it. I did tie the ribbon around but put a glue dot under the bow. Then all the recipient has to do is pull the ribbon off from the back, without untieing.
You can see the ribbon here.

Earlier this week I had a team meeting. I showed everyone how to make this card. The fold is called a Diagonal Gate Fold . I call it Gate Fold with a Twist!
It’s not hard to do but you need to follow the directions carefully.
Design Notes for Diagonal Gate Fold Card:
I thought the Tropical Escape Designer Series paper was perfect for this card. I love the colors and the fresh, clean designs. Here’s a close up look at the paper.
The directions, as I said, are not complicated but it is important that you measure carefully. I’ve written out what you need to do with lots of pictures. Just click to download. Diagonal Gate Fold Card.
On the front of the card, I used one of the stamps and the punch from the Darling Label Punch Box. I love this stamp set.
And don’t you love the beautiful Petal Pink Rhinestones? I think it adds just the right amount of bling!

A Few Reminders:
Want to Win a Free Stamp Pad?
Stampin’ Up! is rewarding demonstrators who sell 10 stamp pads or more during the month of August. I sell ten ink pads, I get a FREE ink pad. If I sell ten ink pads, I’m giving away the one I earn to someone who purchased an ink pad in August.
So, purchase a regular ink pad (not Versamark, Memento, Staz-On or uninked Craft Pads) and you have a chance to win another one!

In August, you will receive a coupon for $5 for each $50 you spend. The coupon will be good in September.

Hope you are having a good day and looking forward to a nice weekend. We are off to New Jersey for a 50th anniversary party. I’ll show you some cards and other fun things from the party on Tuesday!
Last week I made a gusseted bag from the flat Striped Treat Bag. A few folks asked me how it was done. So, today – a video tutorial. To be honest, I’ve made the process a bit easier than the process I used in the original post. (See it here.) Here’s a peek at what I created for the video.
Aren’t these perfect for Valentine treats?
I am pretty sure I saw this done at a Stampin’ Up! gathering a year or so ago. Nonetheless, here is my take on how to create a gusseted bag from a flat one.
I also wrote out the directions so that you could save them for future reference.
I can’t decide which one I like the best.
Supplies for Valentine Striped Treat Bags:
So, do you see how valuable the Stampin’ Trimmer can be? You need one. When you order a Trimmer, I will send you an extra package of Trimmer Cutting Blades as a Thank You gift. The Trimmer comes with one blade but you’ll be prepared when the time comes to replace that blade.
Order the Trimmer, a package of Striped Treat Bags and a stamp set like the Heart Happiness set and you will be all ready to create some great Valentine treat bags. In addition, you will earn a Sale-A-Bration item. Win! Win!
Thanks for stopping by today. Look for another blog post later today. I’m participating in an International Blog Highlight. Each participant will feature something made with a favorite item from either the Occasions Catalog or Sale-A-Bration. Sure to have lots of good ideas there!
