10-Minute Gift Ideas – Creative Stampers Blog Hop

It’s time again for our monthly blog hop! Once a month the entire Creative Stampers team will feature cards related to a specific theme.

  • We will each share a full “alternative” project (related to our PDF project) as part of our “blog hop.”
  • We will each show a sneak peek photo about the project we contributed to the PDF Bundle. We can’t show the whole thing though!
  • And we will each make the project PDF available to you – for free or a fee. (How you get it is up to you!) This PDF is chock full of goodness.

This month our theme is 10-Minute Gift Ideas. Our team is here to help you experience gratitude with a number of easy gift ideas.

For my two projects this month I decided to focus on Love!

First up is my alternative project. This wrapper matches the note pad in the PDF!

Love You – Wrapper for 3×3 Sticky Note Pad
Love You – Wrapper for 3×3 Sticky Note Pad (inside view)

Instructions to make this project:

  1. Cut Pool Party Cardstock to 8” x 3 ¼”. Score this piece at 2 ¼”, 2 ¾”, 6”, and 6 ½”. Burnish the score lines with your bone folder.
  2. Cut Pattern Party Designer Series Paper to:
    1. (quantity 2) at 3” x 2”
    1. (quantity 1) at 3” x 1 ¾”
  3. Cut Pattern Party Designer Series Paper to:
    1. 3” x 1 3/8”
    1. 3” x 3”
  4. Place Cardstock facing you with the 2 ¼” x 3 ¼” section at the bottom. Fold top flap over.
  5. Align and adhere 3” x 1 ¾” DSP to front, top/outside flap.
  6. Align and adhere 3” x 1 ¾” DSP to inside, top flap
  7. Align and adhere 3” x 2” DSP to front,  bottom/outside flap.
  8. Align and adhere 3” x 2”  DSP to inside, bottom flap
  9. Align and adhere 3” x 3” DSP to back of Wrapper.
  10. Punch scalloped heart shapes from Real Red (2) and heart shape from Basic White. Stamp sentiment. Adhere hearts
  11. Adhere Velcro dots – one under the heart punch and one on the front, bottom flap. This will keep the flap closed when sticky-pad is not in use.
  12. Add a bow.
  13. Add the colored sticky-note pad.

PDF BUNDLE (Sneak Peek…. shh, don’t tell!)

And now for the real star of the show, an introduction to the PDF Bundle! Here is a sneak-peek for the original design I contributed this month. We don’t show the actual project because it’s exclusive to the tutorial bundle. The PDF this month has a huge variety! There are so many paper-fun gifts you can create and share. Make the samples exactly as they are shown, or make them your own. And show us what you come up with!
