Blog Party Day 1

Today Lacey and I are creating with the new
My Mind's Eye line "Mischievious".
I created a tutorial on how to make 4 cards with just 4 sheets of
6 x 6 paper.

step 1: start with 4 pieces of double-sided paper cut to 4 x 5 1/4, cut those at about 1 1/2 in

 step 2: flip the smaller piece and re-arrange coordinating pieces, adhere to folded cardstock

step 3: add a strip of coordinating paper over the seam

step 4: add some stamped tags, journaling cards, and embellishments

bonus idea:  fill small glassine bag with treats
add a Kraft bag-topper, decorate with banner cut strips and punched/stamped shapes
(stamps from Unity/Jillibean Soup set: Spotted Owl Soup)

for a chance to win a Kraft-y Kard Kit (includes contents to make 4 cards shown),
along with a 6 x 6 paper sampler (includes 5 sheets each from 5 different lines)
just leave a comment at the end of this post, or any post during our
Scrap Soul Sister Blog Party, Oct. 1-4.
You may comment once each day for a total of 4 chances to win!

I love that you and Lacey are doing this! I love this tute as well - you are so creative, Lynn!

Lacey said...

Super cute Lynn!!! I almost made treat back toppers, but went the route of making the treat bags!! Love you ideas!

Sandy said...

SO CUTE!!! If I got some treats with such a cute bag topper on it, I'd have to make some very difficult decisions...would it be worth ripping up such a cute project just to eat candy? Or is chocolate worth that? LOL!

Tammy said...

VERY cute ideas, Lynn! I especially love the topped glassine treat bags...I'm going to definitely make some of those. Thanks for sharing!
