Welcome to another of our monthly Blog Hops
at Club Scrap
The kit this month is called Transformations
and has some beautiful colors to work with.
Hope you came over here from
and seen what wonderful and inspiring
art she has been making for you.
As I am also playing this week with the
I have a wonderful gift idea for you..
You can use this either for a coffee gift or a tea gift,
whatever you prefer.
This is the front
and this is the back.
You add a coffee packet or a tea bag
and some cookies and ready is your gift.
But the question is:
How to make it!
Well here is the tutorial:
Start by cutting off a strip of 3,5 inch from a piece
of 12 x 12 inch paper. We are working wit a 12 x 8,5
piece of paper.
Now we are going to score.
You can draw the lines and use a bonefolder to fold
or take a score-board if you have one.
(click on the picture for a larger-better version)
Here are the measurements for scoring:
on the short side you score at: 2,5 inch and 6 inch
Now on the long side we make some more scores at:
1,25 - 2,5 - 5 - 7 - 9,5 and 10,75 inch
When you did all this, you need scissors to cut
of 4 corners of 2,5 x 2,5 inch like you see
on the template.
Now it is folding time.
Start by folding these corners towards the inside.
Next you foldone pard to the inside
and then the other part over the first part.
You see all the folding lines now to make
the gift wrap. The outside flaps are also folded
and they are the top of the gift.
The middle part is the bottomand lift the sides.
I put some real Dutch "speculaas" in a
bag and took a bag of green tea.
Made a cute card to go with the gift.
I printed the words on a piece of paper
and used the stencil that came with the kit
and a pencil to draw the rocks around the words.
Cutting out the rocks, adding some ink
and taping themwith foam tape to
the background (that I stamped with the
ginko leave from the UM stamps.
Now adding everything together and on top
made some holes through the flaps for adding a ribbon.
adding the tea bag in one side
and the card on the other side.
Making a nice bow in the ribbon with some
embellishments and you are ready!
Oh yes and here they both are:
coffee or tea,whatever you prefer!
In the coffee variation I added the same coockies
and some pumpkin latte bags.
And this is the small card that Imade,
using the September tool (using a knife)
technique even on this tiny card!
Well I hope I have given you a nice idea, but there
are many more with this beautiful
