SAVI Sunday - Episode 33

SAVI Sunday (Stampin & Various Inspirations) - Episode 33

Acetate Gift Bag

Today I have a cute idea for your inspiration.... to make a little gift bag from our Acetate Card Boxes and a piece of Designer Series Paper.   It will surely make a cute little package for giving someone a gift.  You can fit a card or two, some tissue paper, with a gift card, a candy bar treat, or whatever you can image that will fit in there.  Or just use is as a special presentation for your handmade card. 


Acetate Card Box Details:

  • you will need one acetate card box and cut off one of the long sides
  • DSP cut to 5-3/4 x 9-3/8
  • score DSP at 4-3/8 and 5" on the long side
  • two pieces of ribbon at least 17" long

Here is my video so you can see how I cut the acetate box and then secured it closed!

Arrange A Wreath - Christmas

Hi There... I started posting my projects I made with the Arrange A Wreath Bundle a while ago and I don't what happened.  Or I should say, I do not know where the time has gone! 

Although this is a relatively simple card, I love using the Technique = Ink Stamping with an Embossing Folder.  It is such a great way to change up the look or show off the embossing folders detail. 

Here I have used the Pinewood Planks folder, but before embossing, I tapped my Early Espresso ink pad on the raised details of the folder.  The important step to remember when doing this, Do Not Press Hard with your ink pad.  You just want the ink on that raised detail of your embossing folder.  After you are done, a good rinse under the sink will clean any ink off when using our Classic ink pads. 


Card Details:

  • Cherry Cobbler CS for card base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • You will need another piece of Cherry Cobbler 3-1/4 x 3-1/4 for the wreath die
  • Crumb Cake CS 4-1/8 x 5-3/8
  • Whisper White CS
    • 3-5/8 x 3-5/8 for the wreath
    • 4 x 5-1/4 for inside
    • 1-1/2 x 2 for sign
