How To Make An Iris Folding Easter Card

Hello Scrappy Friends! Tracy here today and I want to share an Easter Card with you. I recently took an Iris Folding Card Class and decided to try one on my own. I made several of these type of cards years ago and forgot how fun it was.

Robins Nest Products Used

Yellow Glitter Paper

You can find all sorts of different patterns just by searching online. Once you have a pattern printed out, you'll need to cut the pattern out and place it on your paper where you want the design to be.

Then you need to trace around the pattern. I only needed to trace around the top pattern of this design since I cut the bottom out of cardstock.

And now the hard part, at least for me. You have to cut out the pattern and you have to be very careful while doing so.

Then place it over top the original pattern that shows you where to place your strips of paper. I used washi tape to hold it in place. Each pattern will tell you where to place the different papers you use. This one called for 3 different patterned papers which you can see off to the right side in the photo below. I used Pink Roses on Green and 2 strips of different patterns from the Bunny Stripe Cardstock.

Cut strips of paper 1 1/2" wide and fold in half lengthwise. Using the guide provided with the pattern, start at #1 and put the appropriate strip on the pattern. The class I took told us to use scotch tape to adhere the paper strips but I used the Best Glue Ever and it was so much easier to position the strips correctly.  The photo below shows all the layers done except for the last 3. 

The center of the pattern is called the Iris and you should cover it with holographic or glitter paper. I decided to use a bright yellow glitter paper.

Once I finished it and removed the pattern from it I found that some of the glue had leaked through. I just grabbed  the Perfect Crafting Pouch and patted it all over the front of the card and then wiped it off using the Perfect Cleaning Cloth. It got rid of all the stickiness and cleaned it up beautifully.

Iris Folding can be quite bulky so I ended up popping this up on the card. I cut out the bottom pattern from the backside of the Bunny Stripe Cardstock and then cut some grasses from the Moss Green Glitter Cardstock and found some old stickers in my stash that went so well with this card. For the chicks eye I used one of the Dew Drops Originals.

Here's another look at the finished card

Girly pinwheels

Today I am coming to show two pin wheels I made, they will be perfect for small girls (they are love pink)

I have used: 

First I found templates of pinwheels and printed them in white cardstock
Then I cut same from my pink paper
All you need to do is glue them together and put a brad to keep all your wings together
When both of my pinwheels were ready I started to decorate them with different embellishments, in the end I added barbecue sticks and they are ready.

We can put them in cupcakes or in the pots with plants.

Hope you like them, have a nice weekend!!!

How to Make a Die Display That is Unique and Convenient

Charity here with a tutorial on how to make a die display that is unique and convenient. I like to display my craft supplies so I remember to use them. Dies are such thin bits of metal that it is easy to damage or lose them if they aren't stored securely. That means I tend to forget about the variety I own. I came up with this handy holder to help me out.
~ Magnetic Die Display ~
 At Christmas my wonderful cousin gifted me this gallery frame for 4x6 photos. It arrived the same day I received new X-Cut feather dies from Amazon. It didn't take long for me to decide to combine the two.
My first step was to remove the paper blanks and trace the inner edge of the frames onto the card board backing. I cut adhesive backed magnetic strips to fit these outlines. Finally I cut a thin, patterned paper from The Robin's Nest, to cover the magnets. Just a thin line of ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever was enough to hold the paper firmly to the magnets without ripples.
I used Cathedral Specialty Paper because I love the pattern and bits of gold dust. It reminds me of fancy Italian writing paper. I only had enough paper for 5 of the frames so I added gold washi tape to the last one.
 The thick, black frames needed sprucing up so I pulled out my scraps of Robin's Nest paper and assortment of Dew Drops. The large butterflies and crown are punched from Glitter Chipboard and the castle is cut from Silver Castles Glitter Cardstock.
 The shaped punches are all Kreaxions, which can be purchased from Just Imagine Crafts.
To add details to my tiny bits of cardstock I used Embellie Gellie. It ensures I place things exactly where I want them.
 I used Boy rub-ons for the center design on the last frame.
Using the Best Glue Ever I stacked Glitter Chipboard shapes and centered dew drops on the butterflies. I also added Butterflies Dew Drops to the frame.
 I mopped up the little bits of glue smears with the Best Cleaner Ever. A dab on a Q-tip and a swirl of my fingers was all I needed.
Now I can display my dies with ease. I also have a secure place to put them if I need to set them aside for using again on the same project.
Stop by my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.

Scrap On!

How to make an easy Tealight card


Today I am sharing a tutorial on how to make an easy Tealight Card which is a perfect little gift to give to a friend or loved one.

I will be using

Saffron-Cards Bike card
Rusty-Rose-Cards Rose card

To help with this tutorial I have added a template for you to work with

Start by cutting and scoring your card using the measurements above

Add strong double sided tape to the flap and fold the box section over.

Add some acetate to the inside of the window to protect your candles

Stick the two cards to the front of the card section

Stamp your sentiment of choice on to the doillie and tie a knot in a piece of ribbon about 3" long

Add the doillie to the front of the card, I also added some paper ribbon to add to the shabby chic feel

Layer the knotted ribbon, some pearl strand and a paper flower and add the front of the candle section

Here's what it looks like when decorated.

You could use this method to make a card in which to add some handmade chocolates, some jewellery or a silk scarf it's up to you.
