Last week I shared some photos of the Pop-Up Matchbox Card In A Box which will hold a Gift Card. I shared with you Rachael Lewsley’s site My Stampin’ Haven which is where I got the original idea. My project is a little different in that the box itself is a bit deeper and wider to accommodate a gift card being placed in the back of it in either the landscape or portrait position.

I shared these little Scallop Tag Topper Punched easter Egg Holders a couple of week ago and promised a tutorial. Well I have a video tutorial for you today on how to make these. I must acknowledge Sandi MacIver for the original idea and I have changed it a little to accommodate some little Easter Eggs. My apologies for the video being so long. I seemed to have suffered from brain freeze and forgetfulness not to mention poor camera angle… Read more »

Well, hello everyone. Many people were wanting a tutorial on this little box I shared in some Facebook forums and on Pinterest and my blog, recently. Here it is and, even if I do say so myself, I think it’s very cute. Now, this was my very first video ever and I was very nervous and I know I need to move the camera for next time, so I will persist and hope to make it a regular feature of… Read more »
