My work server was down for maintenance this morning, so I made some small gifts.

How cute would a roll of wash tape be in an origami box? The best part is that it takes only a piece of 6 x 6 paper! No scissors, no glue and no waste! I finally put some use to the pretty patterns that seemed hard to fit into my cards 🙂 Most washi rolls fit into this box size. Think about all the 6×6 pads you have, anyone? 🙂

I tried putting a tutorial together but origami steps are tricky to shoot. Maybe later when I can have hubby to help.

UPDATE – TUTORIAL HERE:

Off to work now… Have a great day! Hugs!

Favor Box with Fabric Paper 10/17/2011

Made for Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge. The photo inspires me to create a project using fabric and the color: Red.

 

Printable Box Template: Download Here (My first template, hope you would enjoy it!) Sorry about the wire handle~ My first… It was perfectly straight when I got it…

Stamp: (My Peeps) Paper Smooches, using reverse stamping technique.

Punch: (Heart) Marvy Extra Jumbo

 

:”) In case you do not read the comments 🙂 Here is how I did the reverse stamping:

 

I put a busy pattern (or silhouette) clear stamp (in this case, the owl in “My Peeps” set) facing down on an acrylic block and stamp the bird on the smooth back of the stamp (careful, it is slippery), then put a piece of paper onto the image and use my fingers to transfer the ink.  The clear stamp needs to be made with high quality photo-polymer or it would not take the ink well. The finished result could be a little blotchy, I usually use a black marker to go over the lines again. Enjoy~

The good thing about Fabric Paper: slice off the backing paper and stick the sides together! No more gluing! 🙂

HeeHee, I used the little turkey feather in Paper Smooches “My Peeps” to create the three  flowers:)

I wish I had some smaller sentiment but I love every sentiment in “Pretty Phrases” (Paper Smooches)

Stems from “Lunar Lights” (Lawn Fawn), “Rain Drops Background” (Hero Arts)IMG 0752

Inspired by the color combo: Pink/Green, I made this card for Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge
