VIDEO Tutorial: Cookie Cutter Christmas Box Card with Shrinky Dink Earrings

As I expected, the wifi at camp this weekend was pretty spotty, so I spent my hours offline and enjoyed time stamping with my friends. I'll share some pictures of the retreat in my next post because I know some of you are anxiously awaiting this video.
If you saw my Halloween Box Card and earrings set, you're going to love this Christmas version! I gifted these to my upline Kim Peck and my friend Cathy Roy for everything they do at camp to make it extra special. They spoiled us with pillow gifts and prizes!

Here is the Christmas version of the box card and earrings that I made with the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and Candy Cane Lane Designer Paper.

You'll need 12" x 12" cardstock for this project. Here are the measurements:
  • Box Wrap: 3" x 12" Real Red cardstock. Score at 3", 4", 7", 8", 11".
  • Drawer: 4-7/8" x 4-7/8" Real Red cardstock. Score at 1" from each side.
  • Insert for earrings: 2-3/4" x 4-3/8"
Watch my video tutorial to learn how to make this box and for tips on making the shrinky dink earrings: 


TIPS for making Shrinky Dink Earrings:
  1. Stamp the image with Jet Black Staz-On ink. Allow the ink to dry before handling the plastic so you don't smear it.
  2. Use permanent markers or colored pencils to color the image if desired.
  3. Punch the shrink plastic with your punch or use scissors to trim around the image.
  4. If you are making earrings or a charm, be sure to punch a hole (I used 1/8" Hole Punch) BEFORE you shrink it.
  5. Use a Paper Piercing Tool through the hole to keep the plastic from moving around in a heat-safe container (I used an old baking pan) and heat it with the Heat Tool until it shrinks completely. (It will look like it's going to fold into a ball -- keep going! It will lay flat again!) You can also use an oven for this step.

Paisleys & Posies Card for Stamp of the Month Club Kit

I am packing my bags and headed to Camp One Way for our annual team retreat. I am looking forward to stamping all weekend and hanging out with my demonstrator friends. I filmed a couple videos this morning, but I'm not sure what the wifi situation will be like, so you may not see them until I return home.

If you've been waiting for the Box Card instructions, click here to see printable instructions for an older project. I'll post the video tutorial as soon as I can!

In the meantime, I'm excited to share with you the first card I created with the Paisleys and Posies stamp set for my September Stamp of the Month Club Card Kit. I love the fall colors: Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon, and Mint Macaron.

VIDEO Tutorial: How to Make a Bendy Card

VIDEO Tutorial: How to Make a Bendy Card with Cookie Cutter Christmas and Halloween, Birthday Fiesta,  2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog www.juliedavison.comMy downline Margo Richardson recently demonstrated this Bendy Card at our team meeting. I love the dimension of this fun fold card -- and it even folds flat for mailing!

Margo directed me to Daneen Treble's blog for best instructions. I used her measurements to create my own bendy card designs and did a video tutorial so you could see this card in action.

Here's Margo's card. She used the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and Spooky Fun stamp set and dies. I love all of the amazing detail!

You can see the dimension really well in this photo. It's called the Bendy Card because the sides bend and tuck together to create depth and allow the card to stand on its own.
