Halloween Cards and Box Project

So, its nearly Halloween, as I have previously mentioned, its not really something I celebrate – but these papers and stamps were just so adorable I had to make a project with them!

The Stampin’ Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue for this year has a few Halloween themed stamp sets, including ones with matching framelits as well as really cute monsters, but I’m sucker for a sweet witch (I think its got something to do with my favourite book as a child – the worst witch!) so these cards feature Tee-Hee-Hee. The Motley Monsters DSP features Basic Black, Burmuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Tangerine Tango, and Whisper White – for a super bright and fun colour pallet that I am so going to re-visit time and again and again.

Stampin Up UK Motley Monsters Halloween

 

I made 4 cards, all in 4×4 inch size, using Tangerine Tango as the card base, and a 3.75 x 3.75″ piece of Motley Monsters DSP as the card front.

Each of the cards is subtly different, using a different piece of the paper, a different stamp, or embellishment.

I love wooden elements! These leaves are so super cute! I used two of the Autumn Wooden Elements here, colouring the outline element with my Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker

Stampin Up UK Motley Monsters Halloween All the cards use the same sentiment from the Tee-Hee-Hee stamp set, and all the stamped images are fussy cut (such a shame there arent any framelits for this stamp set 🙁 )

I also used the same cardstock and DSP to create a box to gift these cards and their envelope together

I loved making this project, you never know, maybe I’ll do some more Halloween crafting next year!

How To: make your own desk bin!

What is the most annoying thing about craft? all those little bits of paper; the backs of dimentionals, the red carrier tape of sticky strip, little bits of off cuts… and they all float around your desk, making a mess, and getting in the way!

That is until now!

Make your own desk bin, from an old jar, but… please make it pretty!

How to make a desk bin

I used an old jar (think it was lemon curd if your that curious!). First, measure around your jar. use this measurement to measure a length of DSP, but add an inch to give an overlap. The best way I have found of attaching your DSP is with sticky strip – I didnt take the label off my jar, instead it make it easier to line up your DSP to ensure its straight around your bin. Then, add some ribbon (measured in the same way) also with sticky strip. I had to add some more bling! before it looked finished – the sentiment is a stamp from Remember This (one of the Project Life by Stampin’ Up! sets), stamped in Pool Party (to match the DSP), and then I’ve added hearts using the Sweetheart and Itty Bitty Accents punches, and some jewels I had laying around!

Its so damn cute, and a great addition to any craft desk

Sticky Note Holder

Here we are, a lovely little sticky note holder, a quick and easy project for a friday evening!

Sticky note holder stampin up

This project is super simple, using one piece of cardstock and a bit of DSP! I Love the new In Colours, Blackberry Bliss inparticular, and the MoonLight DSP Stack shows it off so well I had to use it too….

The trick is to measure your sticky notes!

I’ve attempted to explain in the video, however, I do like written instructions for fiddly projects like this….

You need to measure your notes, across the width and height (this will give you a square measurement, the front of your holder), and then measure the depth of the pad. Then, you need to take the height of the front and the height of the back (hopefully this is the same number!) and add them together, along with the depth. I’m hoping I’m making sense here ….. maybe time for a diagram.

sticky note measurements

So, to get the lenght of the cardstock you need: 3″ for the font, 3″ for the back, and 5/16″ for the depth. Now, if you can accurately cut to 5/16″ great, I cant, so I’ve cut mine to 3/8″. This gives me a piece of Cardstock 6 3/8″ by 3″.

The DSP is a 1/4″ shorter and narrower than the front of your sticky notes eg: 3×3″ notes, 2 3/4″x2 3/4″ DSP

The rest of the cover is decorated with petite petals cut from that gorgeous Blackberry Bliss, and a sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts, punched with the Modern Label Punch.

Box Tutorial – Create a bracelet box!

Hey guys and gals, I have a great project for you today!

A couple of weeks ago, a colleague bought me a bracelet back from holiday, and I came in a beautiful long thin box. It’s so simple and elegant, so I thought I would re-create it for you using Stampin’ Up! products


Stampin Up UK Bracelet Box tutorial

This box is a little different from our usual boxes here at StampinByHannah, as it has a separate lid, but it is so easy to make. I used Whisper White for the sample, but the one made in the video is Rich Razzleberry (I love this colour so much! it may be my favourite!)

The measurements for this project are:

IMPERIAL
For the bottom of the box

Cardstock = 3 1/4″ x 10 1/4″

Score at 1″ on all four sides

For the Top of the box

Cardstock = 2 7/8″ x 9 7/8″

Score at 3/4″ on all four sides

 

METRIC

For the bottom of the box

Cardstock = 8cm x 26cm

Score at 2.5cm on all four sides

For the top of the box

Cardstock = 7cm x 25cm

Score at 2cm on all four sides

 

See super simple, right! The box is then free to be decorated as you wish, I kept it simple with 3 punched flowers, using the Petite Petals Punch (no stamping here today!) and 3 medium sized jems from the basic jewel rhinestones pack.

And there you have it. A simple box for gifting jewellery, chocolates, or other small presents

I use these all the time to hold various items and projects in the works, they hold items ready for making / photographing / selling / sending etc. I love them! and I thought I’d share the design with you.

Guys Wedding Favour boxes – Gum Holder

So, We get married next year and I am currently in the middle of making invitations, place cards, wedding favours and all the other bits of wedding stationary!

During a discussion with the other half he mentioned about wedding favours, and something for the guys (I don’t see whats wrong with chocolates, but still, packets of chewing gum it is!) Each guest will be getting a wedding favour, but I am making a selection as different people need different things: bridesmaids, groomsmen, children, will get different things.

Which brings me in a sort of round about way to this weeks project: gum holders….

 

This holds a triple pack of a famous brand of chewing gum.

 

 

The cardstock piece measures 3 3/4 by 7 1/2, or 10cm x 19.5cm (not what I said in the video!)

Scored on the long side at:

1, 1 1/2, 4 1/4 and 4 3/4 or 2.5, 4, 11, 12.5cm

Scored on the short side at:

1/2 and 3 1/4 or 1.5 and 8.5cm
