I {Heart} Hearts January 2010 Workshop Planner

Welcome to the January 2010 I {Heart} Hearts Workshop planner.  We are so excited to announce that we are now offering you video tutorials as an added feature of our Workshop Planner. 

We have often struggled to find the correct wording to explain some of the techniques or tools which we use.  It is not always easy to do so.  Now, if you are having a hard time understanding our written direction, you can view our video tutorial.  They have been broken down into one video per technique or tool which we felt needed a little extra explanation. 

These video’s are a brand new feature which you can look forward to each and every month.  We hope that with this, your life can become just a little easier as you prepare for your next workshop.

Valentine’s Treat Tote Video Tutorial

 

For today’s project, I designed this Valentine’s treat tote. You can see an open view of the treat tote below.  I custom designed the template for this based on the size of my treat bottles.  The bottles themselves are a square shape – they are 1 1/2" wide and just over 4" tall.   I purchased my bottles from a really neat online store I recently discovered, called SKS Bottle and Packaging, Inc, based out of the US.  Of course I paid a killer amount in brokerage fees because they shipped UPS (the brokerage fees cost about 1/2 the value of my order).

I put together 2 videos to show you how I made this project – the first video shows you how to make the actually tote, the second video shows you how I decorated the front.

Easter Door Hanger Treat Pouch Tutorial

A Good Egg Easter Door Hanger

Looking for a cute way to start a child’s Easter off with a bang?  How about this cute little Easter Treat Door Hanger?  Slide it over the door knob of their bedroom door and they’ll know right away that the Easter bunny’s been there!

Although door hanger treat pouches are nothing new,  when I was searching for a template, I couldn’t find anything that DIDN’T involved having to print out a template on a sheet of CS and cut it out.  As you can probably tell by now, I’m not a big fan of that.  First off, I find it limits the size of the box or pouch as most people’s printers can only accomodate 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of CS.  Second off, I don’t like having to cut things out more than absolutely necessary.

You can download the template that I created HERE, but please remember that this is a visual template only – it is meant to be used as a guide, NOT to be printed out onto CS and cut out.

Supplies:

  • Stamps:  A Good Egg
  • Ink:  Timber Brown Staz On, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie Classic Inks, So Saffron & Going Gray WWC
  • Paper:  So Saffron, Chocolate Chip & Whisper White CS, Cutie Pie DP
  • Accessories:  paper snips, paper trimmer with scoring blade, 1 3/8" circle punch, corner rounder punch with guard removed (to create the scalloped edge), 5/8" chocolate grosgrain ribbon, medium cello bag, white signo gel pen

Dimensions:

  • So Saffron CS 9 1/2" x 12"
  • Chocolate Chip CS insert 3 1/4" x 7"
  • Cutie Pie DP insert 3" x 6 3/4"
  • Chocolate Chip mat for box front 2 3/4" x 3 1/2"
  • Cutie Pie DP mat for box front 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"

 

Step-by-step directions:

Step 1: Score, crease and cut So Saffron 9 1/2" x 12" CS as directed by the template.

Step 2: Stamp the small flowers stamp in So Saffron Classic ink on the part of the CS that will fold upwards and become the box front and sides, as shown.

Step 3: Place sticy strip on the small flaps and the two larger end flaps as shown.

Step 4: Remove the red backing of the sticky strip on the small flaps, bring up the part that will become the front of the box, and stick the small flaps to the inside of what will become the sides of the pouch as shown in the picture.

Step 5: Align the box so that it is facing you as shown in the picture. Carefully peel of the red backing from the sticky strip on the long flaps,  and slowly and carefully bring the box towards you and stick it down to the long CS box back.  Set aside.

Step 6: Center and mount the Cutie Pie DP to the Chocolate Chip CS insert.  Using your 1 3/8" circle punch, center between the left and right sides, and punch out a circle so that the top of the circle is about 1/2" from the top of the DP.

Step 7:  Center and mount the Chocolate Chip CS insert on the inside of the treat pouch.  This will give the handle added strength to support the treats you put inside.

Step 8: Align your 1 3/8" punch with the existing circle and punch through the So Saffron (the reason you have to punch the circle out in two steps is because the punch can only go through 2 layers of paper at a time).  Cut an angled slit from the left edge upwards to the left edge of the circle as shown. This is how you will slip it onto the doorknob.

Step 9: Decorate your box front as desired.  I have given you the dimensions of the Chocolate Chip and Cutie Pie DP pieces I used, so if you want to do the same, those are the sizes you will need.
