Club Scrap Dahlia Blog Hop

Welcom to the
Dahlia Blog Hop.

I hope you arrived here from
Jennifer's Blog
and see what beautiful art she made.

If you happen to loose your way,
you can always go to the the main
Club Scrap Blog
and see all the participants.

I start here today with a scrap page that I made for
a scrap sketch  challenge on the
Sketch-n-scrap Blog.
Yes, all the flowers make fun pages for girls,
but I think this one is perfect for boys too!
Here is my page with all the elements that are found in
 the Club Scrap April Dahlia kit:
the circles are cut outs and the sentiment strip too. I used the washi tape
that came with this kit and

the ribbed kraft circles with the hemp that came with it too.

 The butterfly is cut out with a die and I made some
instructions on my blog last Monday.
See here for instructions.
On top of the butterfly  I used the circles
 that also came with this kit.

Now a friend of mine asked me for some cards
and so I started to work and made it into a gift.
A bag with 4 cards and matching enveloppes.
First I share with you how I made the bag:
1. I used the 12x12 inch paper with the 2 borders.
I started by cutting of one of the borders.

2. I glued this border on the backside of the paper 
where the other border was on the other side.

3.I used the score board and made lines at 3 and 9 inch
on the vertical side of the bag.

4. An horizontal at 3 an 5 inch (just under the border).

5. Now we strt the folding. We start with folding 
the top border to the front.

6.Turn your paper over and fold the sides towards
the middle.

7.Tape this down with scotch tape.

8.Fold the bottom upwards on the line
you made before on the score board.

9. Open the bottom fold and push thou outside inward 
to have the fold lines line up with the fold.

10.Fold top and bottom flaps towards the center
and tape themalso down with scotch tape.

11. Fold the edges of the bag to help to formthe
corner creases. Now you can open the bag and
form it into its shape.

Punch holes into the side of the bag and 
into the tags. 

Tie a ribbon through the holes to formthe handle.
The two tags are tied onto the handle. You can move 
themapart to write inside.

Now you can add th cards inside.
These are the cards that are inside the box.

This card is made with a piece of the decorated
paper from the kit. Hardly anything else is needed.
I decorated it with a pice of ribbon, a paper
flower from my stasch and a cut appart
and button from the kit.

This sympathy card is stamped with the flower from
the unmounted rubber stamps.It is colored with 
brown pencil and on top a little gold glitter
glue. The splatter is also stamped with one of the stamps 
fro this kit.

Here I used the flower as a border to this lovely sentiment
fromthis Dahlia kit. The flowers and butterfly are
colored with pencil.

The last card started off with sprinkling
a little tangerine color burst on the white
panel.After spraying it with water and drying it
I stamped the flowers on top. Added a little 
color with pencil to the flower
and some sequins for the bling of the card.

Ok, now just one more!
Thanks Club Scrap for always knowing
what we need! Today I need orange paper
for in The Netherlands it is Kingday
and here is a card with apicture my DD took
of us today: yes we wearing a lot of orange.
Background is the stamped flower in versamark and
embossed with clear embossing powder. 
Then sprayed with orange distressink.
Also stamped with the splatter stamp in black.
It is a very cold day today with rain on and off,
but we are having fun!

I used the buttens and the cut apart flower circles
as embellishments on the card. The Sentiment is by
