Gorgeous Gift Tags

Posted on Dec 10, 2015 8:56:02 AM

Hi there, Karen here today to share some little tag-shaped cards. Actually, they are the perfect size to be used as a gift card holder. The ColorWays line coordinates so easily that when you are using a sketch, they come together in no time at all. Keep this gem of an idea in your back pocket just in case you need that last minute holiday gift.

Directions:
1. Follow the tag sketch by Scrapbook Generation in CREATE Magazine (Debbie Sanders - September 2015)

sketch

2. Cut a piece of cardstock for the tag base and select two coordinating papers for the circle and bunting shape.

3. Next, arrange the sentiment and embellish the tag with puffy stickers, diecut shapes, gems, etc.

4. Finally, punch a hole through the center of the top of the tag. Add a bow or tie a piece of ribbon through the hole. 

TIP: Use design sketches for inspiration, but don't feel restricted to follow them exactly. For the black tag, I reversed the sketch. My placement of embellishments was also different from the sketch because the sentiment took up more space. Some elements of the design you may choose to completely leave off. Use the sketch as a guide but let your creativity flow to make it your own creation.

We <3 NYC

Posted on Jul 9, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Hello everyone, Irit here! There are a few places around the world that you either love or hate. New York is such a place for most of us. Some are fascinated by this huge, neverending city; some, like my husband, visited a couple of times and would never go back. For me, New York is the whole world! I love this city. I can go twice a year and still find new places to visit, food to try, or shops with unbelievable sales. I love the streets, the smells, and the lights of this unique city. So making a New York-themed project was great fun, and I think that with Paper House products it was a piece of cake—I hope that you enjoy it!

Pretty Tissue Box

Posted on Jul 6, 2015 9:48:26 AM

Hello everyone, Erin here! I just got over a cold and was using tissues multiple times a day. Staring at the same boring tissue box every day did not help my morale when sick, so one of my first creative ventures post-sickness was to liven up my tissue box. The best part about it is that I can just pull the tissues out of a new box and fill up my pretty one when it is empty!
