Elmo Spinner Card

How to Make An Elmo Spinner Card

Hello Friends,

 Because every two year old or soon to be two year loves Elmo and Spinner Cards are just plain fun!

Brooke hugs fish

Our precious granddaughter, Brooke, will soon turn 2, so I naturally wanted to make her a birthday card that she would thoroughly enjoy.  

Elmo Spinner Card

Elmo spins quite well, making it difficult to capture a picture without him spinning around and around.  Elmo was made using the Layering Circles Dies. Hint: His mouth is a circle cut in half.  His Eyes and Nose were punched with the 1/2" Circle Punch and the Owl Builder Punch.

Hint:  Foam Adhesive Strips are the perfect height for making Spinner Cards.

I personalized Brooke's Card even further with the Large Number dies.  And the frame from the Spinner cut-out adds punch to my card inside too.  Who do you know that would be delighted to receive a handmade Spinner Card?

How to Make Custom-Sized Boxes

Making Custom Size Gift Boxes & Cards

Hello Friends,

When I saw the How to Make Your Own Custom-Sized Boxes Video Tutorial from Stampin' Up!, I knew that pretty gift boxes were in my future and that I would share the results with you.  It's really surprising just how easy these boxes are to make.  Pull out your Stampin' Trimmer and give it a try.

 Love this detailed How to Make Custom-Sized Boxes Video by Donna Griffith from Stampin' Up!.  Learn how to make boxes step by step.  Donna includes all sorts of helpful tips.  

And with the new 12" x 12" card stock offerings from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, we can make even bigger boxes.  Yeah!  Plus, with the fabulous October Designer Series Paper Sale, we can save crafting dollars too.  There's even 2 Holiday Catalog Designer Series Paper offerings from the Holiday Catalog.

How to Make  Holiday Treat Boxes

 

Measurements for Treat Box

I like this one because it's still a nice size  box, but I can get 4 box bottoms out of one 12" x 12" sheet of card stock.

Bottom

1-1/4" + 3-1/2" + 1-1/4" = 6

Don't Forget the "smidge".

Top (Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper)

3/4" + 3-1/2" + 3/4" = 5

Jolly Friends Treat Box

Have a little fun with the inside too.  I stamped "WISHING YOU A SEASON AS SWEET AND JOYFUL AS THE FRIENDSHIP WE SHARE." on the bottom of the box.  Fill it with treat and as the supply dwindles the secret message will be revealed.  How cool is that!  And what about that reindeer?  He is just so stinkin' cute!

 

Make Cards in a Box

Yes, I did shamelessly copy the 2 card directly out of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  Why not?  First, there is the cuteness factor and second, it was quick and easy.  Stampin' Up! has so many amazing samples.  Copy them, change them a little or change them a lot.  It's ok.  It's called casing.

Measurements For Card Gift Box

Bottom

1-1/2" + 4-3/4" + 1-1/2" = 7-3/4"

1-1/2" + 6" + 1-1/2" = 9"

Don't forget the "smidge".

Top

1" + 4-3/4" + 1" =6-3/4"

1" + 6" + 1" = 8"

Donna's Template really does work for any box.  Try it!  If you love to give the gift of cards, you'll love making this little box.
