Gift Bag Punch Board Video

Do you have some smaller gifts to give this year?  Make your OWN small Gift Bag in just a few minutes using the Gift Bag Punch Board, some adhesive, and some ribbon or Baker’s Twine!  It takes less time to make your OWN Gift Bag than to watch this video!!

This video is 12 minutes long.

SUPPLIES:
Gift Bag Punch Board #135862
Card Stock or Paper cut at 10″ long for a Small bag, 11″ long for a Medium Bag, and 12″ long for a Large Bag.  Cut the paper 1-1/4″ taller than you want the finished Bag height to be.  For example:  a 6″ tall piece of paper will make a Bag about 4-3/4″ high.
Adhesive:  Fast Fuse OR Tear & Tape
Ribbon or Baker’s Twine if desired

TIPS:
1.  Score along the 10″, 11″ or 12″ side of the paper at 1-1/4″ with either your Gift Bag Punch Board or other scoring device.
2.  Remember to Punch first, then Score.
~a. Start at the Start Line. Punch then score at the S, M, OR L  line depending on the length of your paper.  10″ long=Small.  11″ long=Medium.  12″ long=Large.  This will be the Back of your Gift Bag.
~b. Move your Score Line to the Start Line.  Punch.  Now score the side of your bag: Left side of Triangle, line down the Center of Triangle, Right side of Triangle, then the Side Line.  These 4 Score lines make the side of the Bag with the Pleat.
~c. Move the Side Score Line (the furthest to the Right) to the Start Line.  Punch.  Now score the S, M, OR L  line  to form the Front of your Bag.
~d.  Repeat Step 2b to make another Side and form the Tab for the adhesive.  Trim off the the flap part of the Tab.  Check the diagram on the Punch Board to made sure your project looks the same.
3.  Place adhesive on edge of Bottom Flaps:  Front facing up:  both Sides and Back flaps and side Tab. Turn over so the inside is facing up and put adhesive on the Front flap.  Fold in the sides first, then the Back, then the Front.  Use your Scoring Tool to press down the adhesive.
4.  Optional Ribbon Holes.  Punch the end, then each side of the Front and Back.  DO NOT punch the center lines of the Sides.

Happy Gift Bag Making!

Stamping on Glimmer Paper Video

I wanted to make a Purple Glimmer Paper Witch’s hat and so I tried stamping on Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  I LOVE the results!  I hope you try this and enjoy the results too.  Please leave your comments and let me know how you like this technique.

This video is 4 minutes and 56 seconds.

SUPPLIES:
Bundle:  Howl-O-Ween Treat  Wood #140839, Clear #140840  (Includes the Howl-O-Ween Treat stamp set and the Boo to You Framelits)
Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes Wood #
Ink:  Black StazOn
Blackberry Bliss
Elegant Eggplant Marker
Card Stock:  Very Vanilla
Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper #139584
Black Glimmer Paper #139605
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper #
Big Shot:  Boo to You Framelits  (See Bundle above)
Punch:  Word Window #
Other:  Spider Web Doilies #139622
Fine Tip Glue Pen #138309
Fast Fuse or Snail Adhesive
Dimensionals

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Very Vanilla card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score & fold at 4-1/4″.
~Cut your Happy Hauntings spiderweb paper at 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Attach to card base about 1/8″ above the bottom edge of your card front.
~Cut your Black Glimmer Paper at 1/2″ x 6″.
2.  Cut your Spider Web Doily in half after deciding which part you want as the center.  I chose the part with the circle to be at the center.  Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen on the thicker parts of the doily and attach it close to the top of your card base.  Stamp your Spiders in Black StazOn ink remembering to press down firmly.  Now attach your Black Glimmer Paper strip to cover the gap between the Spider Web Doily and the Spider Web paper.
3.  Stamp, color, and Heat Set your Witch Hat as shown in the video.  Cut out with your Big Shot and the Witch Hat Framelit.  Attach to your card with Dimensionals.
4.  Stamp Happy Halloween in Black StazOn ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  Punch out with the Word Window Punch.  Attach to card front with Dimensionals.
5.  Now you have a cute Halloween card to give someone special.

Happy Stamping!

Big Shot Precision Base Plate Video

Have fun using the NEW Precision Base Plate with your Big Shot and detailed Thinlit dies!  This video shows how to use the Precision Base Plate with both card stock and Silver Foil Paper.  It also uses the Delicate Ornament Thinlits and the NEW Fine Tip Glue Pen.
Delicate Ornament Card

This video is  Just over 8-1/2 minutes long.  The actual demonstration is about 5 minutes.

TIPS:
1.  Big Shot Sandwich:  Multipurpose Platform with Tab 1 and Tab 2 closed, Precision Base Plate with black side up, card stock, detailed Thinlit, top cutting plate.  The Precision Base Plate is used instead of the Bottom Cutting Plate.
2.  You only need to run card stock through one way.
3.  Move your Thinlits to a different spot each time to help preserve your Precision Base Plate.  Putting the Thinlit in the same spot each time can damage your Precision Base Plate.
4.  Start with a New Top Cutting Plate.  Rotate which side is the Top and Bottom each time.  I am thinking of labeling mine with Side A and Side B to help me remember.
5.  Use a Bone Folder to gently remove the cut outs you won’t need.  Flatten out your card stock with your Bone Folder after all pieces are removed.
6.  When using Foil Paper with your Big Shot, place either card stock or folded printer paper on top of the Foil Paper and Framelit or Thinlit to prevent Cutting Plate marks from transferring to your Foil.  Make sure the paper or card stock covers the ENTIRE piece of Foil Paper, otherwise you might get embossing from either the card stock, paper, or cutting plate.

CARD HINTS:
1.  Use the coordinating Detailed Ornament Framelit to cut a back for your Detailed Ornament.  Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to add glue to the Detailed Ornament.  Line up the Framelit and Thinlit pieces at the Ornament top and attach pieces together.  Use your Bone Folder to rub the back of the Ornament so that both pieces are fully attached.  Add extra glue with the Glue Pen if necessary.
2.  Cut the Ornament Tops from Silver Foil Paper and attach with a half Dimensional.
3.  The Softly Falling Embossing Folder is used for the card front.

Have fun with your Detailed Thinlits and Precision Base Plate!
