Scrap Strip Technique using Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Paper

Scrap Strip Technique using Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Paper

Hi Everyone! Today I have a fun and easy technique that helps use up scrap strips of designer paper. It’s the (big wink) Scrap Strips Technique LOL!

It couldn’t be easier. Glue strips of designer paper side by side. Pick an image to die cut and have at it!

I like starting with a 6″ x 6″ piece of Whisper White cardstock (not thick whisper white). 6″ wide because that the max. width of my die cutting machine. If you have lots of 12″ long scraps – you could make a 6×12.

General Steps:

  1.  Cut strips of scrap designer paper into 1/4″ x 6″ or 1/2″ x6″ OR whatever size you wish! 1/2″ shown above. AND feel free to mix and match the widths!
  2. Arrange the strips in a pattern you like.
  3. Glue using Multipurpose glue.
  4. Die cut an amazing, one of a kind embellishment or layer!

To make this project.

  •  Die cut Scrap Strip using Stitched so Sweetly.
  • Stamp sentiment with VersaMark, add Gold Embossing Powder and heat set. Die cut.
  • Add sentiment using a glue dot.
  • Fold bag flap.
  • Tie ribbon and add Scrap Strip embellishment using dimensionals.

Gold Pizza Box with Wobble Gift Card – It’s a Wrap Glitter Queen Hop

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for visiting today. We have our Glitter Queen “It’s a Wrap!” Hop  today! My project features the Gold Mini Pizza Box.

What’s great about the box is it’s an S=SS Wow box. Shiny = Something Special! Right? you wouldn’t put something hum-drum in a gold box right?

And there is an action wobble spring that holds and wobbles the gift card holder on the inside lid when opened. I found the wobble springs on Amazon here, but you can find them at craft stores too.  The gift card stands out 3D from the lid leaving room in the box for yet another surprise!


Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Paper: 6 x 1-5/8, (2) 3-1/4 x 3-1/4

Whisper White Cardstock: (2) 3/4 x 3-1/2

Here’s a video tutorial for you showing how to make!

Tip: You can substitute a 1″ x 5″ Thick Whisper White for the wobble spring. Score every 1 inch and fan fold.

All items listed below the Hop Order. Please visit each on the Hop!

Hi Everyone! What’s spookier than a family of sharks!? And how fun to add this to your treat bag! Or put a little candy inside his Baby Shark mouth 🙂 Or better yet, have your children or grandkids make for their friends for Halloween.

Start with a 6″ x 6″ cardstock.

  • Baby Shark – Daffodil Delight
  • Mommy Shark – Melon Mambo
  • Daddy Shark – Pacific Point
  • Grandma Shark – Grapefruit Grove
  • Grandpa Shark – Granny Apple Green

Product List

See photos below to assemble! My description steps will following the order of the pictures:

  1. Start with point at top.
  2. Bring bottom point up to top point. Use bone folder for crisp fold.
  3.  You now have a triangle. Bring right bottom point up to meet top point. Use bone folder.
  4. Repeat left point.
  5. Unfold.
  6. Take the front layer top point directly down to the fold. This creates the pocket.
  7.  Take the right side point and bring in up and tuck inside the “pocket”. The pocket will not fully develop until booth sides tucked.
  8.  Take the left side point and  tuck into the pocket.

Now we need some shark accessories! Turn it around so the tucked part is up to the top of your work surface as shown:
Materials for the shark:

  • 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ squares – 1 Whisper White, 1 Petal Pink  – Free hand cut at the diagonal
  •  1″ x 3-1/2″ Whisper White
  •  2″ x 2-3/4″ in shark cardstock color
  • 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ in shark cardstock color
  • Googly Eyes – I like the big ones!

For the 2″x 2-3/4″ rectangle – cut as shown to make top fin and side fins. Use Multipurpose glue to adhere to back. TIP! Not shown.- Adhere the 2-3/4″ square to the back of your shark. This covers the fins and adds a finished look to the bookmarker.

Update! Here’s a Video Tutorial for you!

  •  Gift cards
  •  Any other small gift fitting the inside dimensions of ~ 3-1/2″  x 1-1/4″
  •  Party Favors

 If you use the Gift Box Punch Board, it make the tab cuts for you and looks more finished.

We are entering a phase in our family of weddings and babies! I have my box decorated for my niece’s wedding shower. This box is inspired from a pillow box swap from Kris Miller.

Box Measurements:

  • 6-3/8″ x 11-3/8″.  (Will need a 12″x 12″ cardstock size to start. If you want to use Petal Pink, you can get the Subtles Collection or the Floral Romance Cardstock Pack. Or Uses 12×12 Whisper White)
  • Score along the 11-3/8″ side at: 1-3/8″, 3-3/8″, 6-3/8″, 8-3/8″
  • Score along the 6-3/8″ side at: 1-3/8″, 5″
  •  TIP! in my Video Tutorial (below) I’ll show you how you can use the Gift Bag Punch Board to make professional looking tabs. 
  •  If you don’t have the Gift Bag Punch Board yet, you can use the cut guide above to cut your tabs. They just won’t be as fancy!

Designer Paper Measurements

  • For Box: 3-1/4′ x 2-3/”, 3-1/4″ x 1-3/4″
