Stamperia Garden Party in a Box Tutorial for Throwback Thursday
Hello, Friends! This week’s Throwback Thursday project is a Stamperia Garden Party in a Box Tutorial. After enjoying a short stroll last Sunday with my sweet husband (yes! we are taking little walks! Hooray!) I got this crazy idea in my head. Instead of taking a nap, I locked myself into the studio for a couple of hours so I could put the crazy idea to rest . Sometimes, you just have to give in to the voices in your head, right?
Now, y’all know I’ve made lots and lots of box pockets. I’ve even made them on the outside of my cards before. But this time, I wanted to create a box pocket from clear cardstock (acetate) so that it would look like a greenhouse window with a little potting bench inside. See? I told you it was a crazy idea. But sometimes crazy works for me, so I go along with it. Instead of figuring out what I was doing, I just turned on the camera and let it roll. So this tutorial has a few fun twists and turns in it. At the end of the day, I think you’ll find a lot of good inspiration and tips buried in it.
Paper Lollipop and Bookmark
Lollipops are sweet…and paper lollipops are sweet, too! I’ll show you how to make one using a paper straw, scoring tool, and a 12″ x 2″ strip of designer paper. It’ s so easy, you’ll want to make stacks of these as embellishments for your cards. We’ll also make a sweet stamped bookmark that I’ve embellished with beautiful lace from Reneabouquets.
Here’s a peek at all the treats tucked inside the clear pocket. The chocolate is wrapped in the same bit of designer paper as the tea bag.
A Peek Inside
Learn how to use scraps, the paper cover from the collection, and magnets to make a neat flip page that’s actually a pocket.
Tuck this little note card inside the pocket as a sweet surprise.
There’s a little gift card wallet inside…or you can just tuck in a note. Either way, it’s a fun addition to the card design.
