Skull Card and Halloween Gift!

This shaped skull card comes with the base card, an inside mat, and the detailed skull cut for the front of the card.  The card fits inside a 5" x 7" envelope and the pieces are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats!  

I  cut my skull mats and front detail with a light grey card stock and added in inks to decorate!




Thought I'd also share a fun Halloween package that I created using a pinterest inspired idea!  I made the barb wire out of Jute and used inks to color it up.  I tied extra pieces of Jute around itself then wrapped it around the box.  I added foam adhesive to dollar store flies and adhered them to the package.  I thought it was a lot of fun!

Holiday Bag Toppers!

These bag toppers are sized to fit Sandwich sized zip bags measuring approximately 6-1/2" x 2-1/2" in size when folded and they are  compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 bags.  The files come with all the paper elements shown and all of the elements can be used separately as well.  

Here's the tutorial for the Santa:

1.  Cut out all the pieces.
2.  Adhere the solid face piece on the main santa piece.
3.  Adhere the beard piece on the face.
4.  Use foam adhesive to adhere the hat scallops in place.
5.  Adhere the large ball to the hat end and use foam adhesive to adhere the mustache in place.

Please note that the photo appears to have a backing, but it is just my 
backdrop showing.  The topper only covers the top of the bag on both sides.

Holiday Envelope Bags for Treats


These envelope bags are similar to the taller ones I released earlier this year, except these are shorter!  I really love the versatility of these bags, there are so many uses for them! You can size them to fit your needs so they can hold tag, tickets, cookies, even small photos! You could even cut these in vellum to create your own glassine-like bags! All of these are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 bags and follow the same tutorial. This bag comes sized at approximately 4-1/4" x 3-1/2" but can be sized to fit your needs. All of the elements can be used separately as well.

7.  Adhere the holly and berries in place.  Embellish and fill as desired!  





Here's the tutorial for the ornament:
1.  Cut out your pieces and fold the circles in half.  Adhere the long skinny strip to the center of the envelope bag.
2.  Place adhesive on one side of the circles.  Adhere two circles sides together.

Battery Operated Tealight Characters!

Good Evening!  Today I am sharing my new 
Battery Operated Tealight Characters and Gift Box.  

These files work with a battery operated tealight and they come with all the paper elements shown. The files are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  



Here's the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces.  Grab the piece with the tabs.  Place adhesive on the side tab then adhere the tab to the other side of the piece to form a circle.  Adhere the berries on the holly.
2.  Grab one of your circle frame pieces and place adhesive all over the back of it.  Push the bottom tabs down so they are flat against your workspace. Insert the circle frame piece, adhesive side down.  Adhere it securely to the tabs.  I use a tongue depressor/craft stick to smooth mine out and adhere it in place.
3.  Your piece will look like this.
4.  Place adhesive on the back of the second circle frame piece then place it in adhesive side up (but don't push it all the way down yet).  
5.  Push your tabs down.
6.  Flip the piece over and push the circle frame down against those tabs and adhere in place.  
7.  Your piece should look like this now.  Grab the third circle frame piece.
8.  Place adhesive on the back side of the circle frame and adhere it on the form.  This will be the top.  Gather your solid circle.
9.  Flip the piece over and adhere the solid circle on the bottom.

10.  Your piece should look like this now.
11.  Flip the piece back over and your battery operated tealight will fit inside.
12.  Gather your snowman pieces.  Adhere the hat band on the hat and then adhere the holly on it.
13.  Adhere the smaller circle behind the face circle.
14.  Your face piece should look like this now.
15.  Place adhesive on the backside of the face and adhere it on the candle base as shown.
16.  Adhere the hat in place.
17.  Tie a ribbon (or twine) around the paper base of the tealight holder.
18.  Your holder should look like this now.  









This box is approximately 4-1/4" x 4-1/2" x 1-3/4" and it works with all the Battery Operated Tealight Characters shown above.  The file comes with the box base, the box lid, and the coordinating mats as well as a window sheet cut.  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  


Here's the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces and fold on the score lines.
2.  Adhere the mats in place as shown.
3.  Place adhesive on the four tabs of the base box and on the four tabs of the lid.  Adhere the tabs to the box sides.  Your boxes should look similar to this.
4.  Place the lid over the box base.
5.  This is a view with one of the tealight holders inside the box.
6.  This shows that tealight holder with the lid on.  

Note - the file comes with a window sheet cut.  I do not have it in place as it makes it difficult to photograph.


Here's a look at the new files hitting my store later this week!
