5-Minute Craft: Cards Box

Today on 5-Minute Craft: Cards Box set complete with a box to store your cards or give as a gift. This can be a great solution for ATC’s or Christmas cards that you don’t know where to put. For this project you’ll only need a 12×12 double sided thick cardstock and a bone folder to make sure your folds are creased well. If you don’t have a scoring board than use a ruler and a bone folder.     5-Minute Craft: Cards Box You can change the size of the paper you are using to accommodate larger cards. In order to do that measure the size of your card and make sure the front and back panels of the box are slightly bigger than that. That will guarantee that the box will be big enough. If you have a lot of cards you want to fit in the box just stack them together. Measure the combined height of the pile. …

In today’s 5-Minute Craft: Eraser Bulletin Board . This fast project will solve all your memory problems! You’ll never forget what you need to do when you have a pretty bulletin board in front of your eyes. All you need for this project is an old picture frame with glass.

Simple Star Mini Album

This simple Star mini album is one of the easiest mini album to make but the effect is definitely a wow effect. The fun thing about it is that you can do it with your kids or grandkids and watch their eyes open with wonder. All you need for this project are 3-4 A4 (8 1/2″ X 11″) papers. They don’t even have to be double sided. It’s actually a great project to use some of your unwanted papers. I took a few 12×12 papers I didn’t need and cut them to size.  I was going over my archives, doing a little spring cleaning and came across this project from a long time ago. I remember the nice lady who showed me how to create this simple star mini album. I lost touch with her and can’t remember her name. As you know I don’t like to keep things to myself so I decided to share it with you.    …
