This template of Adela’s is called the Menu Keeper. It’s a cute little recipe box, recipe card holder & recipe cards:
I used a stamp set from Hero Arts and Patterned CS from Martha Stewart.
Here’s the back:

Well, I’m back to school in a few days, full time school + full time Mum of 3 busy kids + Chief Cook & Bottle Wash & Dog Walker = Little to No crafting time & a very loving & tired DH to boot!
So I thought I’d play a bit today before the wave hits me. I’ve made a heart box template. (I got the idea from a “Dora & Diego” box I saw last year). You could put cellophane window or just a baggie of goodies inside, like I did.
I’ve put my Heart Box SVG up here, if you would like to download it!
There are also some other matching hearts svg’s too.
Otherwise you can print out this:
Once you have it cut:
Then Score it.
Then fold it up!
Use Adhesives on all sides, except one, which you can punch holes for brads or ribbon. This makes it easy to open & close.
Here’s the back:
To put goodies in!
Hope you have fun!
This week’s 3D Challenge from Paper Craft Planet, 3d75, “Purse”-onality, is so darn cute! Adela provided us with a freebie template pattern to make it too!
I used some Martha Stewart paper, Embellishments: Creations by AR, Stamp: SU! Cercle D’Amitié, Ink: Certainly Celery, MM Brads. It was so quick to throw together.
Be sure to check out the 3d75 Album for more fun interpretations.
Ever done any bubble gum wrapper weaving as a kid? I don’t even know what we called it, not a paper chain, it was just what it was. Bazooka Joe Comic Wrapper Art, I guess. Here’s a twist on it, for this week’s 3D Challenge at Paper Craft Planet! 3D74–”that’s a wrap”, baby!
Now, I made each paper chain rectangle a bit longer to have more of a zig-zag pattern, but use a rectangle shape. Here’s mine:
and then you fold:
make a few more …
Fold, fold, fold, to have your paper links ready to chain:
Make a bracelet or whatever! Once you’ve made your creation, be sure to add it to the Paper Craft Planet Gallery & tag it 3d74 so I can find it & add it to the album!
I made a headband with my K & Company Patterned Paper. One of the neighbourhood children kindly lent me her noggin to demo the headband.
If you’re better with a video tutorial, there are a bunch on You Tube, but I like this one from Jenny Sunshine How To. It’s very clear.
I went with a quick card for this week for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge, #87, The Holiday …
Here’s where the inspiration came from. I’d link in the video here, but if you start watching the movie midway through, it ruins it.
here’s the inside of the trifold card …
The papers are from Stampin’ Up!, (ink Cameo Coral) as well as the Star Punches & the sentiment (Quick & Cute), the eyelettes are from Making Memories.
My DD isn’t into the ribbon thing, she’s more grungy–raggedy-denim & that’s where I started with this project.
I repurposed this old watch that for whatever reason, I hadn’t thrown out. (Anybody remember the Oprah watch-ribbon craze? Well this was my cheapy watch that I had some fun with & then the battery died & I think it was more expensive to change the battery than to replace the cheapo watch). lol
and just made the soft side toward the wrist & the bumpy side is where I adhered the flower.
And Bob’s Yur Uncle, a little shabby-chique brooch-bracelet for DD.
Here’s a link, for those who want the svg, of the “marigold-ish” type layered flower I drew.
So the Cinema Challenge Saturday Creative Challenge, #86 this week was Bend it Like Beckham. Good choice being that the Soccer Fever is high. My kids got right into it, cheering for Germany today.
So with this challenge, what else could you make but a soccer ball??? This SVG was a freebie Beth, at My Cricut Scrapbooking! Thanks, Beth!
Okay, I have to say when I saw this week’s 3D Tuesday Challenge, I was a bit skeptical. I dunno if mine will turn out, but I had most all the supplies, so why not give it a go.
After working on it, I have to say, I LOVED THIS challenge! Paper Craft Planet’s 3D68, “Washed Away” challenge from Silvia was so much fun! I am a bit of an impatient person, so waiting for the glue to dry was difficult for me. I followed the directions pretty closely, except instead of glueing the paper to the washer & then waiting, I just used the diamond glaze to glue the paper to the washer & then the glaze on top at the same time.
I cut my patterned paper with 2 round nestabilities that best matched the washer (easy-peasy!), so really, like I said the hardest part of this craft was WAITING a day for the diamond glaze to dry. You can see my washer balanced on an empty thread bobbin here …
But look how it turns out!
Now, I must admit, I didn’t have ALL of the supplies. I didn’t have a clasp, so I just made a slip knot in the leather cording. I like it like that too, because it’s adjustable. Just tie two knots and then it slides, but because of the leather, it holds in place.
Don’t forget to trim the ends.
Check out the 3D68 album for more inspiring washer necklace patterns.
Thanks, Silvia for all the links over at Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Tuesday group.
Each ‘Creations by AR’ DT will have a random winner from the comments this week. The winner will win their choice of one of our new sets, so be sure to enter here & at each of the DT’s blogs!
So what can you make? How about Adela’s super cute Tea Time Set!
Isn’t that cute? She designed this TEA TIME template, such a clever girl, I’m in awe.
It is a little box of course, that opens up …
Where you could put whatever, candies, jewelry, tea,
Just so darn cute.
Then I tried out her other tea template, the tea cup …
WITH A TEA BAG for the sentiment or a quick note.
And there you go, such an adorable Template available from Creations by AR.
