Make a gift bow from a magazine page

Make a gift bow from a magazine page
In gift wrap emergencies when you've got the present but need some wrapping, here's an idea for turning a magazine page into a bow. There may be better ways to stick this thing together, but I used what I had on hand: staples and adhesive glue dots. Double stick tape or brads should work, too. Cut a magazine page lengthwise into 9 strips, 3/4" wide. Leave 3 of the strips full length. If you're using a magazine that's 10 1/2" tall, you'll end up with: 3 strips, 10 1/2" x 3/4" 3 strips, 9 1/2" x 3/4" 2 strips, 8 1/2" x 3/4" 1 strip, 3 1/2" x 3/4" Twist each strip to form a loop at both ends and staple it in the center. Layer the three longest pieces on top of each other, spacing them evenly and securing each with a glue dot. Use other papers, like a map of your city.

Flowers Welcome to flower week – five days of simple and delightful flower projects. I could probably do three weeks of flowers because there are so many different ways to create them, but I’ve limited it to five of my current favorites. Before we get started, let me make a few disclaimers: 1. 2. 3. Okay, so let’s begin. Here’s what you’ll need: :: paper {either cover or text weight} :: florist wire :: scissors, pencil, glue gun STEP ONE: cut irregular circle This circle is approximately 8 inches, but you can do any size you wish. STEP TWO: cut spiral Start at the outside edge and cut in a spiral fashion to the center. I like a sort of bumpy shape so that the petals end up a bit irregular If you aren’t so sure about your cutting skills, feel free to draw your spiral before cutting. To add a little interest to my bouquet, I used a variety of yellow scrapbook papers {my favorite is that yellow dot} STEP THREE: roll your blossom start at the outside edge and coil tightly STEP FOUR: release coil

Envelopes Making envelopes from magazines was one of my favorite crafts as a kid… right up there with friendship bracelets and bedazling (don’t judge).

I feel like I just rediscovered an old favorite song (the one that you used to play over and over and over again and then promptly forgot about for about 6 years. Cue the nostalgia!) Heads up on the addicting nature of this one. What you need: - Envelope (Pick any size you like–just make sure it fits within a single page of your selected magazine. 1.

Diva's Challenge #184 2 2014 Clearly iStamp: Gift Card Grad Hi friends, before we get started with Tuesday's tutorial, I just wanted to remind you that we've got our monthly challenge going on right now. You have until June 3rd to join the fun. You can read all about it RIGHT HERE. Now for todays fun...Katie here and its Tuesday which means that I've got a tutorial for you. Today, I decided to box up my gift card. My first inclination is to go the traditional black and white since I don't actually know a person graduating this year, but I opted to go with my other inclination at the moment... Graduation is a big deal and its a reason to celebrate so I opted to create a design with these fun bright colors and using a new release stamp set called Air Flair. I then added THIS single graduation hat image and THIS graduation sentiment to create my tag. So how about the box? Here is a list of all the dimensions for the 3 main pieces of cardstock that you will need. I started with one color and stamped the balloon image. Next I added my balloon basket.
