Hi Everyone! Welcome to our First Fridays' Blog Hop!


We each picked a Designer Paper to show you a few projects! I choose the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack – in comes in a 6×6 stack size. The design is actual wood that's photographed. It's AWESOME. If you struggle for that masculine touch, this pack is perfect for that!


First is my card which pairs copper accents with a Wood Textures Designer Paper. I so will be using copper and wood! The woodgrain sheet I choose looks exactly like my paper storage shelf it's sitting on!


 Here I stamped  image from Wood Words in VersaMark and used Copper Embossing Powder to heat set the image on one of the light wood textures from the pack.  I also stamped the sentiment and embossed as well then punched out with the 1" Circle Punch. Next layer on top of a 1-1/4" Early Espresso Cardstock. Die cut copper foil sheet using stitched shapes framelit.  Add some Copper Metallic Ribbon for the finishing touch!

Cut Materials:
Whisper White Cardstock 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
Early Espresso Cardstock 4 x 5-1/4
Wood Textures Designer Paper 3-3/4 x 5



 Next is a teeny tiny treat box! You can get 2 out of (1) 6×6 sheets! They hold 1 or 2 kisses or fill with a snack pack of loose M & M's. This pack will go a long way if you need or want to mass produce a little wintery treat!

I have them decorated with the Card Front Thinlits – which you can buy separately or part of a bundle THIS MONTH – it's part of an early release special! It's part of the Carols for Christmas Bundle.


How to make:

Start with a 3×6 sheet of Designer Paper. Score along the 6" side at 1-3/8, 2-3/4, 4-1/8 & 5-1/2

Turn and score at 1" along the 3 " side.

Position the section with the 1/2 section on the right side as shown above. Cut out the bottom , lower right section and angle cut the section. Add tear and tape. Cut up to the 1" score line creating 4 tabs at the bottom. Flip over and add tear and tape to one of the bottom tabs.


 Connect the sides with the tear and tap tab and fold the bottom flaps together – save the bottom tap with the tear and tape until last.


Pinch in the sides. Now you are ready to fill with a treat then keep closed with a Gold Library Clip! Die cut images. Add embossing paste to tree. Stamp and punch sentiment using Tabs for Everything stamp set and the 1/2" Circle Punch.

 Here's a tutorial on how to make!
