The Best Way to Add a Flap to a Page

Hi dear friends! Today I want to share with you The Best Way to Add a Flap to a Page. There are other ways of course but this is my favorite way to do this and I think it’s also the easiest and fastest way too.     The Best Way to Add a Flap to a Page To create the page you’ll need three pieces of cardstock: The base page, the back ground page and the page for the flap. First decide the size of the base page. The background page should be slightly smaller than the base, about 1/8″ smaller. Finally the size of the flap should be wider than the background page but the same height. Here’s the video tutorial with all the measurements and the complete process. This page is the first page of 15 pages that are part of an interactive mini album in The Ultimate Interactive Mini Album Series. The series includes 6 full step …

Altered Playing Cards – part 2

We’re continuing with the Altered Playing Cards series and we’ll be exploring new mixed media techniques and ways to alter the playing cards into amazing pieces of art. Today we’ll alter 4 cards using different materials like gelatos, acrylic paints and distress inks.

Each card is matched with one word and is designed to correspond with that word.     Altered Playing Cards Each card is design according to my interpretation of the word and it might not “speak” to you. Feel free to change things and give each design your personal interpretation and style. The techniques and materials I use are for your inspiration and are meant to give you ideas and ways to alter the cards. Before you start don’t forget to cover all your playing cards …

5-Minute Craft: Pretty Envelope

Today on 5-Minute Craft: Pretty Envelope! This cute little envelope  can be created for almost anything you want, such as a cd, a card or even money. It’s pretty to be a gift wrap for any gift to someone special. It’s so easy to create you’ll not believe it! It takes even less than 5 minutes.     5-Minute Craft: Pretty Envelope All you need are four circles to create your envelope. The great thing is that you decide what size those circles will be. The larger the circles the larger the envelope and you’ll be able to fit larger things in it. The best thing is to cut the circles from a double sided cardstock so the inside will look as good as the outside. Use whatever circle cutting tool you have or draw a circle with a pencil and cut with your scissors. Once you cut the first circle you can use it as a template for the …
