Hello everyone! I am excited to share one of my three projects that were published in Paper Crafts Handmade Home Decor magazine. Triangle containers for Spring. I thought it was my phone stand idea that got them in! lol OK, for eggs or for phones, here is how to make them! As easy as 1, 2, 3! 1. Trim paper into three 4″ squares, score and fold diagonally. 2. Score and fold each piece as shown. 3. Tuck each corner into the corner of the next piece, creating the container. What? The bow ties look familiar? Oh yes, they are from a printable pattern I shared here. I was so excited to see my blog URL in the supply list!

Hello everyone! I can’t believe that Valentine’s Day is just a week away. My 2013 has been WILD! I have a small tutorial today for a quick heart banner. I made it within 10 minutes:) The finished heart is about 8-1/2″ – a good size for home decorations. This is also a great way to use some of the pretty paper we’ve been hoarding collecting. I used my favorite V Day collection of all time: With Love by Pebbles. Here is what you will need for this project: 12×12 Paper Craft Pins Twine A scoring board (Scor-pal, Martha Stewart Scoring Board, Score-it…) Cut paper to 4″ x 12″. This is the front of the paper I am using. Step 1. On the back of the paper, score at 6″ and make a small mark at 2″ as shown: Step 2. Flip paper, align the 2″ mark and the bottom of the 6″ […]
Hello everyone! I have a 3D project to share today! Desktop Cube Calendar! It can be a great gift to give during the new year or just some happy craft time alone or with your kids! It was quick and easy to adhere the stickers to the cubes but the dimensional stickers I used ended up making one of the cubes taller than the others: So I turned to my trusty stamps! You can see clearly on this kraft/white version that I made my own cubes (find my 2-min video tutorial here and original post here, using the exactly same mesurements as stated in the video but close the bottom with an extra piece of 2×2 paper instead of leaving it open.) Recipe 1. 2″ craft cubes or cardstocks for making your own (tutorial as linked above) 2. Stickers (flat ones recommended, make sure you have at least 5 As) […]
Hello everyone! Today I am featured for the Hampton Art & Scor-pal Week! You can check out all the projects and the giveaway details here! The winner will be announced on Monday the 19th. I am a long time Scor-pal fan and I am very excited to play with the new Scor-Envi they just came out with. And here is what I have for you today: quick and easy take-out boxes! Finish one in 5 minutes! My inspiration is the cute Tiny Take Out Box designed by Beate Johns. I am lazy so my version involves no cutting or gluing and can be followed very loosely. Watch the tutorial in HD on Youtube or below: Just cut your paper to a square (I used 5-1/2″ squares for my projects), put it against the scor-pal & Scor-envi as shown below; score two vertical lines (7″ and 9″ for the square boxes; 7-1/4″ […]

I am very excited to share some photos of what were in my box :) Some of them will be in my giveaways next month:) First up: KI Memories new collection: Flashback!
