Welcome, today's technique is a 3D project. This Easter basket that was made using the envelope punch board.
Start with a 6 x 6 pie e of paper and punch and score at 1 3/8" & 4", rotate 90 degrees and line up your score lines as punch and score the other 3 sides. You will end up with 2 sides that have larger triangle points then the other. Cut up this side to the score line, and fold to make the basket. Decorate and punch handles with the petite petal punch. These are quick and easy to make and would look great on your table this Easter.
This project was created as I needed a hostess gift for a workshop I recently did. The host chose to base her party around the Birthday Bouquet suite, so I wanted here hostess gift to match. These little 3 x 3 cards are quick and simple to make and are great when you need just a little card for a gift or a quick thank you. I even used the envelope paper and envelope punch board to create coordinating envelopes.
Looking for a reason to party? Here they are Birthday, Congrats, Thinking of You - and they are all in one stamp set. The best part is you can get this stamp set free with your $60 purchase (before shipping and taxes) during Sale-a-Bration. Want to see more check out this video
Today's card is inspired by a card that was in a Stampin' Up! Newsletter. I just love this DSP that you get for FREE with your $60 order (before shipping and taxes). If you have not had a chance to order this or the other limited time Sale-a-Bration items, today is the last day they are available. Tomorrow there are 3 more items available that I know you are just going to want to have as well. Come back tomorrow to check out the new products.
With Valentine's day only a few days off I couldn't resist making these cute little hand bags. They measure only 2 1/2". They are the perfect size for a pair of earings, or chocolates for that someone special. The neat thing about this project is that you can make it any size you want easily as it is made from the square box that the gift box punch board makes.This project was from another Demonstrator Elaine Jackson, she has a made a video tutorial of this project you can check out here. I chose to latch mine closed by using a mini brad.

Well it should be easy to tell what my inspiration is for today's project. My kids need to hand out Valentine's to their friends at school. Paper pumpkin came to the rescue with this cute kits. As a paper pumpkin subscriber you have access to buy select kit refills or past kits. I purchased the Filled with Love refill kit for $10, and it came with all the supplies I needed to put together 24 Valentines, the only additional items I purchased was the gummy bears or tinsel and stamp to go in them.
When you are making all your fabulous cards and using the great DSP designs there are you end up with these little stripes of paper left over. What do you do with those little pieces of paper, you recycle them....no, you put them back into your paper storage area because you are sure you will use them one day. That pile keeps growing and you never do anything with it. Well today's technique comes to the rescue, I am sure it has a number of different names but I am going to call it Paper Quilting, because it reminds me of a how you would make a quilt square.
