Hi all, it's Saturday...time for another fun OCC challenge! This week Lynda is challenging everyone to make a 3-D item such as a gift tag, gift box, ornament, decoration, gift, anything!)
Be sure to check the OCC blog for all the details and to link us to your projects. We can't wait to see all the fun Holiday stuff you come up with! Check out what the girls on the OCC crew have made: Amy, Cindy, Dawn, Jennifer, Julee, Laurie and Lynda...as well as our special guest designer this week, Lindsey Botkin.
I made an accordian tag holder and six tags using the new SASI Home Sweet Home set from Taylored Expressions. I'm attaching pics of what the holder looks like when it's closed and when it's open.
Six pieces of white CS were cut to 2.25" wide x 4" high and the corners were punched with SU's tag corner punch, stamped with the cupcake snowman and Let it Snow sentiment, and colored with Copic markers (numbers are in the recipe below). Another six pieces of Basic Gray CS were cut 1/8" larger all around, the corners were punched with the tag corner punch, and then they were glued to the back of the stamped white tags. I punched six 1-3/8" circles in the blue Prism paper from the Christmas Key Ingredients, glued them to the tags, and then punched holes in each of them with my Cropodile. Ribbon was added through the punched holes.
I pulled a sheet of the baby blue Prism paper from the Christmas Key Ingredients, cut it to 10.25" wide x 4.25" high, scored it into thirds, folded it "closed", and then used my paper cutter to snip off the corners and make each panel look like a tag. Next I cut three pieces of Basic Gray CS to 3.25" wide x 2.75" high, and then cut three pieces of white CS 1/8" smaller to mat in front of the Basic Gray. The cupcake snowman from the Home Sweet Home set was stamped onto each of the three white panels with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics (numbers are in the recipe below). Then I stamped the snowflakes from Home Sweet Home onto the white CS in Versamark and heat embossed them with silver embossing powder. The white pieces were matted against the Gray, and then I used some sticky strip along the left, right, and bottom edges to glue them to the accordian panels...that leaves the top open and makes three pockets. I inserted two tags into each of three pockets, folded the accordian holder "closed", punched holes on the left and right sides with my Cropodile, and tied them shut with the same silver ribbon.
It sounds like a lot, but these are SUPER easy to make! You can then give the whole set away as a gift or what I like to do is keep them in my purse and use them as notes....they tie onto anything! :)
