It’s Wednesday so that means more Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls …
This week we are creating projects using the Envelope Punch Board ..
Too often we forget about all the awesome products we’ve had for a while when there’s new stuff to play with and I thought it would be great to remind ourselves about this great tool – which would also make a very cool Christmas Gift for your favourite Crafter or Crafters!
You could even add a packet of Designer Series Paper and you’d have a great gift for around $50 – plus when you purchase it from me I’ll include a couple of tutorials and guides to use it!
Now you can make all sorts of projects with our Envelope Punch Board from envelopes and envelope cards to boxes, bags and treat holders but for today I wanted to share some projects there were (or are) a little different …
Today I’ve made a Gift Card Slider Box, a small tea cup and and a mug or as my daughter called it a Japanese Tea Cup – I prefer to call it a latte cup!
The Gift Card Slider box is one I made following a Tutorial from Stamping T! – one of my Latte Girls! It’s the perfect size for a Gift Card!
So dont pay up to $10 for the metal ones the stores try to sell you – make one yourself – it’s quick and easy and Tanya has a video tutorial here and it takes less than a sheet of cardstock or patterned paper!
My next project is the small Tea Cup …
I’ve stamped the Water Lily from Remarkable You in Versamark, embossed in Silver then water coloured with Melon Mambo. I’ve then flicked the clear Wink of Stella Pen over the cup for a little extra glimmer. It is so sweet and literally the perfect size for a votive candle & holder.
Last, but no where by the least, is this ‘mug’ … if you are a tea drinker maybe you prefer to call it a Japanese Tea Cup or if you are a coffee drinker (like someone else we both know) you may prefer to call it a latte cup. It’s pretty much the same tutorial as the Tea Cup just with different measurements.
I stamped the flowers from Awesomely Artistic in Versamark, embossed in Silver and then just added some flicking from the Gold Wink of Stella for some added charm and elegance. You could fit some lovely treats inside – I’ve popped some of the gold gumballs we got at On Stage inside a cello bag and tied it up with the gorgeous Silver Glimmer Ribbon.
Both these cups are quick and easy and I followed an easy tutorial from Linda Parker – a demonstrator from the UK.
I hope you like what I’ve created for you today and can see just how very versatile this Envelope Punch Board is. Now I’m sure Narelle and Libby and some more gorgeous projects to share with you today using the Envelope Punch Board so be sure to pop along and visit their blogs.
Thanks for stopping by …
