Cute & Functional Mini Backpack

Have I got an DARLING 3D project for you! I'm going to show you how to make a Mini Backpack in this Facebook Live Video Replay. It's oh, so cute, functional, and fun to make. This  Mini Backpack can be used for so many occasions - graduations, teacher appreciation day, embarking on a trip or new adventure, birthdays, Father's Day, and more. I'm going to use the Mini Backpack use see in my video demonstration gift for my niece. Avery is graduating high school this month and will be attending The Ohio State University in the fall. I used OSU colors and will fill the main section of the backpack with various gift cards that I know a college student will enjoy. I'll put some mini sticky note pads in the front pocket. Then, I'll put the Mini Backpack in a clear cellophane bag and tie it up with a pretty bow and handmade tag. I think Avery will love the handmade touch I put on her graduation gift.

 

This is the Mini Backpack I received from my friend and SU! team member Tracy Dahling that inspired me to make my own Mini Backpacks for graduation gifts. Tracy had a package of flower shaped sticky notes & a chapstick in her backpack and chocolate mints in the front pocket.

It looks a bit intimidating but with the right measurements and my guidance I have no doubt that you can and will enjoy making some Bay Window Cards yourself. And, of course, everybody who receives one of these will be amazed at your creativity. And that is what it's all about, isn't it? Putting smiles on the faces of others!

Teacher Appreciation Day is May 4th

As a former teacher and mom who made sure our family showed our appreciation for our children's teachers, school employees, and bus drivers,  I can say a little token of appreciation goes a long way in helping people enjoy their jobs and stay motivated to do and be the best they can be. Tuesday, May 4th is Teacher Appreciation Day. I kept that day in mind when planning my April 28th Facebook Live projects. I created 2 sets of cards and a fun 3D gift tag that you can make quickly and easily and with limited supplies. All projects feature one of my favorite punches, the Apple Builder Punch. If you don't have it yet, I think you're going to want it after seeing this video demonstration. AND you'll want to order it quickly as this item is retiring on May 3rd and is only available while supplies last. AND if you can believe it, it is on sale for just $7.20 (originally $18.00). It doesn't get better than that. 

The projects you're about to see in this video are not only great for Teacher Appreciation Day, but for other reasons as well. How about as a Back to School gift, a hostess gift, fall harvest notes, a co-worker gift, or simply to surprise someone with a little pick me up or gift of cheer? How about using these apple cards to send notes and gifts to the "apples of your eyes" - grandchildren or students on summer break?

I used Real Red DSP from the 2020-2021 Regals Paper Pack for these card sets.

In the following sets of cards, I used the NEW 2021-2022 Regals Paper Pack Collection. I LOVE the tone-on-tone patterns of the new 6" x 6" DSP's in Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles, and 2021-2023 In Colors. These will be available for all to order on Tuesday, May 4th with the launch of our brand new Annual Catalog.Apple Builder Punch by Stampin' Up!

Who knew that a simple $3.50 product could give so much dimension to an otherwise flat shape? That's exactly what our White Stampin' Chalk Marker does for these apples. It's my best $3.50 investment ever! It also works great for coloring the center of small flowers and so much more. Trust me when I say, "Everyone needs one".

Video Demonstration - Popcorn Purse

As requested by so many who saw my original posts on my very fancy and very chic Oscar Night clutch, I did a video demonstration for my April 26th Facebook Live on how to make these fun party favors. They are great for Girls' Nights, bridal showers and bachelorette parties, little girls' birthday parties and tea parties, and so much more. You can also give them as "movie night" gifts. Perhaps, include and movie DVD or theatre gift card with this fun favor. One viewer even suggested using it as a "welcome to the neighborhood gift" with a movie and enough popcorn favors for the whole family. You could swap out popcorn for a chocolate bar and other treats or a notebook or journal. How about using it as a Mother's Day gift? Change up the paper for any occasion and the size to accommodate other treats or gifts. You can even make something more masculine - think wallet for Father's Day or a brother or an uncle or grandpa's birthday. So many possibilities!

 

Here's some individual photos for a closer look at my popcorn purses!

Make My Popcorn Purse!

My family has always enjoyed movies whether it be movie night at home or a trip to the theatre (boy, do I miss that). And popcorn just makes the movie experience better! It seemed appropriate that I have a fun Oscar Night treat so why not share my "popcorn purse". Take a look at my fancy Oscar Night clutch made from Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper and Basic Black Card Stock. It looks so elegant on the outside, but on the inside it's a popcorn party!

A couple of tiny refrigerator magnets were used on this, but velcro or double stick tape is another option for this party favor.

Thanks for visiting Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe. I hope you like today's project. Change up the paper and card stock to make popcorn purses for favors at a little girl's party. Make it pretty for Mother's and enclose a movie night coupon along with the popcorn for a fun Mother's Day Gift. Enclose a movie or theatre gift card also inside the popcorn purse and give it as a Birthday gift for your favorite movie lover. 

 


Embossing Folder Storage Made Easy!

If you're like me, you are continually looking for new ways to organize your craft supplies so that they all have a place and that they are easily accessible thus making our crafting experience more fun and more efficient. 

I made the storage boxes below to house my Embossing Folders. Since we have 3 basic sizes of Embossing Folders, I made 3 different sizes of the boxes. They are all the same height but vary in width.

Watch my video for a complete demonstration of making all 3 sizes of my storage boxes. Then consider how you'd use these to organize your craft room. You might think of other uses for them both in and out of your craft room.

Easel Cards Made EASY!

I'm delighted to bring you this video demonstration on making Easel Cards. You are going to love this Fun Fold and be surprised at how easy it really is to make if you haven't tried it yet. You'll also get a look at some cool new In Colors and a brand new bundle. All coming with the launch of our new Annual Catalog on May 4th. Be ready to listen and learn, and pay special attention to my tips on using the Stamparatus in creating with Builder Punches.

This is my sample easel card I made to show before demonstrating. I love the 3 new In Colors I used and how they compliment each other. They are Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, and Evening Evergreen.

The easel card below was made with the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set without the coordinating Flowers & Leaves Punch. Instead I chose to color the stamped image with Stampin' Blends.

Dandy Garden Gate Fold Card

Spring is nearly here, and I can hardly wait. I've been looking forward to warmer, sunnier days, blossoming trees and new life. And of course, it won't be long before we see dandelions popping up everywhere. While they are a weed and considered a nuisance, they can bring beauty to our days with their bright yellow flowers. Plus it's fun to make a wish and blow on one that is ready to spread its seed pods and make a wish. Either way, we can look for the good in this bit of nature. I can even remember back decades ago when I was teaching elementary school, being gifted a bouquet (or two or three) of yellow flowers. Oh, they smelled yucky especially in a hot classroom, but I always made a fuss over how excited I was to receive such a thoughtful gift. Any teachers reading this can relate, I am sure.

The video posted below is from a recent Facebook Live. In it, you'll find a demonstration of the Gate Fold Card. These are truly as easy as they are fun to make. So take a look, then give the Gate Fold Card a try. I think you'll be glad you did!

Spring Treat Bag

In today's video demonstration, I show you how to make a cute party favor or treat bag perfect for your spring occasions - St. Patrick's Day, Easter, birthdays, bridal shower & weddings, and so much more. Or how about decorating one of these treat bags for a teacher or graduate and enclosing a gift card? No matter the occasion, people are going to love receiving one of these sweet treat bags. What occasion will you create these party favors for? What Stampin' Up! products will you use in making them? Let your creativity shine, then share what you create.

 

I've chosen 2 beautiful papers from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper for these two spring party favors. The stamped image is part of the Oval Occasions Bundle and is absolutely perfect for celebrating Easter and Spring.
Oval Occasions Stamp Set & Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper

This favor is actually a bag with a tent-like band that slides over the closed bag. The bag can hold chocolates and other sweets, a gift card, and even a piece of jewelry. I'm sure you can think of many other items to put inside these favors.

Here is a St. Patrick's Day party favor also made with Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. The gold metallic accents make this paper truly elegant and rich. The Gold Foil Shamrock was created using the Heart Punch Pack.
