This was my birthday bash class, where we made fun projects for birthdays. The first project we made was this gift card holder using the scallop envelope die. The die, if cut just as is, does not fit a gift card, just a little short. So when I saw these instructions on Patty Bennett's blog, I new I just had to try this out. Thanks Patty!! Check out all of the wonderful ideas on Patty's blog, you won't be disappointed! I also used a Sizzix textured plate, my first time using it. It turned out not too bad. Here's what the GC holder looks like without the belly band on.
The next project was a pop-up birthday cake using the sizzix pop-up birthday cake die. Here's the card closed. I used the chef from the Voila! stamp set.
Here's what the card looks like when you open it up! The birthday cake POPs up! Kinda cool, huh! We used the textured DSP called To The Nines, which is now retired.
Here's a close-up of the cake. Last, but not least, our gift bag with tag and matching tissue. We rollered the white tissue with a jumbo roller and tempting turquoise ink cartridge. Then, we cut the circle out using the new circle scissors plus. It is such an easy circle cutting system to use. If you did not attend this class, and will be attending one soon and want to try out this circle scissors plus, please let me know. I'll be happy to let you have a try. You will love it!
