Easy Origami

Here’s this week’s 3D challenge, from Paper Craft Planet! 3D 116.

If you’re looking for something quick to make, this is it!

think these would be fun for a patio table decoration or kids party.  Maybe something in

red/white/blue or red & white for my fellow cannuks :D

Here’s the video on how to make it.  I’ve seen many versions of this, including this one

from S.J. Renoir.  Here’s my take on it in video form:


For the large blue Grommet on the side, I used the Making Memories Grommet Kit.  Fun tool.

The CS is from Stampin’ Up!

I will admit, when I made the video, it was the first time I tried making it.

My youngest guy, Liam who’s 5, made another one with me afterwards …

Super easy & super fun.  Hope you have a good time making one too.

Give it a go (start to finish not even 10 minutes).  We’d love to see what you’ve made so be sure

to upload it to Inlinkz and link to your blog so we can all be inspired!

I love shoe.

This week’s 3D Challenge at Paper Craft Planet, 3D96, comes from Adela.  Adela provided us this cute PDF Heart Basket!  Instead of punching the ribbon at the top, I did it at the side with these cute eyelets.

Very Quick to put together.

Anybody Recognize the embellishment?  Anybody?

Retro Shoe Clip.  I had some in my embellishment drawer.  Too much fun & it dresses up the little package nicely.

Paper Parasol Basket

I couldn’t pass up the fun to partake in the 100th Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge!  I remember when I saw the first challenge & was inspired to craft!

Pride & Prejudice, with a bit of lace!  Gotcha!

A really fast one for me, just a period style Parasol basket!

To fit in some small chocolates or goodies.

That’s all, thanks for the fun!

Cupcake Basket

This little cupcake box is a Freebie from Adela of Creations by AR & it’s the Tuesday 3D challenge over at Paper Craft Planet!

I love how Adela cut the template for a fun closure at the top.

I resized the template to make it a bit smaller to hold a wee treat!  Use some double sided paper mix for a bit of variety.

Thanks, Adela for the template!!!
Be sure to check out the 3D80 Album for more fun takes on this template.

hello friend

Time for Paper Craft Planet’s 3D challenge, 3d70, a Hanging Basket.

Adela, from Creations by AR created this template for us to use!   Thanks, Adela!

This was a very quick project & it’s perfect for a few little cookies or goodies as a surprise for a friend …

Be sure to check out the 3d70 album for more fun interpretations!

Origami Purse Video

Well, here’s my first “go” at a video tutorial.  I was playing around with this idea from last year’s Origami Mommy blog entry and loved how it turned out.  Here is my take on her purse-basket.  I am thankful to say that I didn’t knock over the video camera that I had perched over top of me, despite being distracted by my youngest & also our 10 month old 50 pound puppy, Sparkle.  Hope you have fun with this “long video” & it inspires you to give it a go!

Just a Basket Case

Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Challenge this week, 3D52, is basket weaving!   There are so many different weaves out there & I’m hoping you’ll like to try one of them or share & show us a different basket weave that you know about.  Be sure to upload your basket weaving to the Paper Craft Planet site {here’s a tutorial on how to do that} & check out the 3D 52 album.  Never tried uploading a photo to Paper Craft Planet?  Here’s a step-by-step tutorial for adding photos to the PCP Gallery.  Once their in the gallery & TAGGED with 3d52, I can find them & add them to the album!

Here’s my take on CraftyPod’s Diane Gilleland basket design is based on the traditional Danish Woven Heart. Check out her tutorial here!  In order to make her basket you’ll need to understand how to do the weave.  It’s not difficult, but unless you’ve done it once, it can be a bit funky.  So here is a great little tutorial from Gingerbread Snowflakes, on danish woven hearts–how this cute weave works.


It’s a little narrow basket, perfect for a few treats:

I just love the woven technique–looks cute & finished inside & out.

How about Laura Canale’s Basket Tutorial?  Here’s my take on her basket.  This one is a bit more complex & can be more time consuming if you sponge each little strip of paper, but look at the results … how cute!  I added one more half strip to the weave to make the over/under weaves even, but otherwise the same technique.  Here’s my take on it:

Inside.  I didn’t need to add a bottom to the basket, but I like the velour CS, so I did.

Trying to cut down on time, you don’t need to sponge the strips, but it is a cute effect.

Here’s the Irish Blessing.

Now when I first made Laura’s Basket, I wasn’t near my computer & I thought I can do it from memory.  lol, I know better than to trust my memory.  But although it wasn’t the same, it was a fun mistake, that ended up to be a Narrower version, that could probably hold a water bottle :D  What I did differently, is putting the narrower strips for the base, I think.  lol  I had a lot of strips left over anyhow.

Here’s the inside:

How about Monica’s Super Easy & Cute Basket that was featured on Paper Craft Planet.  I think I’m going to the the kids to make one of these on the March Break … & me too :D .  She has a Video Tutorial to follow along with, easy peasy!  I used some Stampin’ Up! DSP to have a go with her technique.

Here’s the inside:

Pillow Box Basket

I found this tutorial at SplitCoastStampers for a Pillow Box Bucket made from using the SU Sizzix Pillow Box Die Cut.  I had to give it a go & it was quick & easy to put together.

Here’s the bottom.  I cut the circles out with Creative Memories Circle Cutters.

Used:  Hero Arts Clear Design Dolls Stamp Set, Pumpkin Pie Ink, Kraft CS, Cornucopia PP (Michaels), raft Ribbon, Rhinestone Brads, Scallop Edge Punch (SU), Circle Punches, Scalloped Circle Punch, Tutorial from Lynn Put at SCS.

Peppermint Patty Box

Paper Craft Planet has week 4 of the 3 D Challenge!  3d4 was to create this cute little Peppermint Patty Box, with the wonderful directions from Cambria Turnbow.  Thanks for pointing out this cute craft, Tammy!  It didn’t take up much paper, just a 5″x5″ CS + any Embellishements.  I of course, don’t have any Peppermint Patty’s in the house.  I did have some not that long ago, but needed a chocolate fix & they went to a good cause.  :)

I found this little 5×7″ paper pad, from Colorbök, called Friendly Forest.  Cute, inexpensive & perfect for cards.   They have matching Brads too … but I didn’t use it on this project.

This craft was really quick to put together & I could see making some for the kids classes … well, might get around that, let’s see that’s 3 kids times 25 kids … yikes when’s Easter this year?

Used:  Bordering Blue CS, Chocolate Chip CS, Colorbök Friendly Forest, Buttons, Embroidery Cross Stitch Floss, Oval Punches, Scallop Edge Punch, 1 1/2″ Brown Offray Ribbon, Sticky Tape.  What?  No Stamps?  WHAT is THAT?

Accidental Template

So I was messing around in Illustrator today, practicing with the Pen Tool a bit more, trying to make some kind of flower, but it looked more like a basket template to me, so I went with that instead.  ’Nuf Computer time, move onto craft table.

I printed it out on PP (set your printer to “fast draft” or some kind of light printing, so you barely see the tracing lines, unlike my basket :)  Score, & cut & Bob’s Yur Uncle.  

I used Tombo Glue to hold it together.  You can see the really heavy print out lines on the inside, but ya know what, stuff it full of goodies & I’m hoping the recipient won’t notice.  

There’s the bottom, just a basic hexagon:

Embellish & add goodies:

Used:  Making Memories Antique Copper Brads, Offray 1/4″ Ribbon, Yummy Stamp Set SU, Always Artichoke Ink, Glossy CS, Green Tea SU DSP, Oval Nestabilties, Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch, Tombo Glue, Printer.
