Can you believe that 2013 is here? It is time to turn the page to a new year and new creating possibilities!

To start off the year, I created a large magnet to post on a refrigerator or file cabinet.

She is super simple to put together with vintage and new items.

Contained Vintage

2 Comments | Leave a new comment

When a vintage doily becomes much more than a decorative place mat.  Recently spent some time with my mother out and about trying to find estate sales when we came across a few vintage treasures.  I don’t collect much, but when I saw large boxes of knitted doilies, fabric and buttons I fell in love.  Today I used a few of my finds, many Vintage Street Market goodies and a little bit of this and that to create a gift container and tag.

It may go against the norm; however, I used my Sizzix circle die and doily find to create a layered flower on the top of the jar.  Topped with a mulberry flower from VSM.

Used the bingo craft card to create a label, a ticket which I stamped for the tiny tag and vintage book paper to embellish the layers.  So maybe die cutting something that was so finely knitted isn’t such a bad thing.  Helped create a gift that is just perfect for someone special.

  • bingo craft card
  • vintage ticket
  • vintage book paper
  • paper flowers
  • pins
  • crepe paper border

Have a great Saturday and maybe you are out looking for vintage treasures…wishing you happy finds!

A BINGO Hanger Part II

Leave a comment

It seems as though I can’t get enough of Vintage Street Market’s BINGO CRAFT CARDS and turning them into fun hanging art for my craft room or other places in my home.  Happy Tuesday, Vintage Street fans, Shellye here with a couple of things that I’ve crafted-up vintage style!

As I eluded in the beginning paragraph, I’ve once again crafted a sweet piece of hangable art using a couple of BINGO CRAFT CARDS.  Being that it’s the middle of July, I can’t wait to get started on my Fall and Winter projects…I’ll admit that it helps me to get through the dog-days of a Texas Summer (and a little of Bing’s “White Christmas” playing in the background helps too!).

This HAPPY FALL hanger is actually a pocket too.  I created this by gluing two of the same sized Bingo Craft Cards together.  To do so, I cut two 1″ strips the same length as the sides of the cards and one 1″ strip for the bottom;  score the center of each strip so that it can fold or expand as needed.  Add a bead of glue to the tabs of the strips and glue to the front and back Craft Cards (see photo below for close-up).  Allow to dry and then begin embellishing…

I cut a 2″H x 24″W strip of the brown crepe paper (from the Dimestore Vogue Paper Kit).  I then cut the paper into sections, the same width as the bottom of the bingo card.  Layer the strips together (I had four) and machine stitch (or glue) at the top; cut into the crepe paper to create a fringe and then add to the bottom of the hanger.

In decorating the front, I used a 2″ strip of Pretty & Playful patterned paper (backside) from the Family Fun Paper Kit.  I cut a dovetail at the bottom and attached to the bingo card with foam tape.  I added a smaller, orange Bingo Craft Card to the top of that and embellished with a felt pumpkin, chipboard letters and glittered sticker from my stash.  I cut out the “happy” tag from the Black Twirly Twine packet and attached with a bit of glue.  I also tied on a small Black Twirly Twine bow and then stitched on a couple of large buttons using the same Twirly Twine.

When it comes time to display, I can insert some fall leaves, dried flowers or other small notions into the pocket.

Next up…creating fun wrapping and a bow with Party Games Paper Sheets and Tags!  We had a small gift to wrap, so I used an empty check box as the container and then wrapped in the pink portion of the Party Games Paper Sheet.

To make the bow:

Cut five 12″ x 1/2″ strips of paper…I cut mine from the yellow portion of the Party Games Paper Sheet.  Cut each strip in half.  Loop each strip by reversing the side as you … Read the rest

Summer Party Fun

Leave a comment

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for me!  Summer!  I love  hot weather and being able to sit outside  on my patio and enjoy nature’s beauty.  Right now the temperatures are perfect for outdoor events and my creations for this month were made for my sweet nephew’s birthday which we celebrated recently with a cook out.  I wrapped a gift with a home made pompom and made a money pocket.

My nephew is really into saving money for a trip the family is taking to Universal so I gave him cash and wanted a cute holder to tuck the money in.  I decided to make my own with a manilla folder.  This is super easy and I will share with you how.

First cut down a folder to the size you want.  I made mine 4 1/2 x 10.  Fold in half and score with bone folder.  Mat a piece of Party Games decorative print paper to front and stitch sides together.  I love the vibrant colors of the paper paired with the shiney finish.  Voila!  A gift card pouch is made and it’s nice and sturdy.

Next I added a scallop crepe paper border that I sewed along the bottom.  I covered the seam edges by creating little bows with red Twirly Twine.

I then made a label with white card stock and cut a tiny strip of red foil also from Party Games.  The pennants are cut from the diamond die cuts in the set as well and then I used stickers for the date and sentiment.  The Paper Sheets and Tags sets offer a wide variety of items and are a tremendous value for all you get!  Plus they are on sale this month.  Check it out here.  A few yellow rhinestones completed my project.

If you want a contrasting background for the inside of the pocket, line with gift wrap paper.

And because I like to give something for him to open, I wrapped a box of candy in the decorative print paper and made a pompom from yellow crepe paper from the Party Games set.

I cut strips of the crepe paper and tied together in the middle.  It’s as easy as that!  I wrapped the gift and tied a piece of aqua Twirly Twine around it to make a bow with a red button to secure.

I used the ice cream die cut and added the letter “C” from the decorative printed paper sheets.  It is attached with a bull frog clip.  I didn’t realize the irony of this till later with the frog print.  😉 A small rhinestone again to embellish and my gift was wrapped.

I hope this inspires you to create a fun birthday gift or even a Father’s Day gift.  Happy Summer to you!… Read the rest

Two-in-one Gift Anyone?

4 Comments | Leave a new comment

Can you believe it is February 21st already?  Wow, time flies.  I am always looking for a new way to wrap gifts for my kid’s friends or even mine.  Here is a way to give the gift receiver more than one gift at once.  I wrapped the gift using the foil from Party Games Paper Sheets, Paper Dolls, clothes and envelope from our Family Fun Paper Accessory Kit and our new Twirly Twine in denim to create this gift.

As you can see, the receiver will get their gift and paper dolls to play with after she opens her gift.  Who could ask for more?  The envelope is from the Family Fun Paper and Accessory Kit and put together just like the instructions say.

Next you can wrap the gift with your Twirly Twine.  You receive enough twine  (10 yards) to easily go around your package quite a few times,  and give it lots of color!  Then it can be used again and again in crafting and more gift wrapping.

And, of course, Linen Tinted Tape holds it all together!

I hope my gift recipient enjoys all the fun gifts she receives in this two-in-one gift.  Have a great week and I hope this inspires your gift wrapping for your kid’s friends and your friends.
