Darilna embalaža/Gift card holder (tutorial)

Lep pozdrav vsem skupaj! Upam, da preživljate lep vikend. Spodnja objava je nastala v sodelovanju s podjetjem Rayher.

Ste že kdaj podarili komu za rojstni dan darilno kartico? No, jaz sem. Pa ne samo enkrat. Zato sem se odločila, da vam tokrat pokažem, kako lahko iz papirnate vrečke naredite lično embalažo za darilne kartice in skrito drobno presenečenje. :)

Hello everybody! Today I made a tutorial on how to make a gift card holder that also holds a small hidden surprise. It's made of a small "sandwich paper bag". i hope the pictures explain it well, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)

Pa začnimo ...

Potrebovali boste naslednje stvari:
- natron vrečko
- dekorativni papir (jaz sem uporabila tega in tega)
- štampiljko (jaz sem uporabila Mama Elephant - Over the rainbow)
- medije za barvanje motiva (jaz sem motiv odtisnila na Langton akvarelni papir in ga pobarvala z distress blazinicami)
- trak (jaz sem uporabila bel organza trak širine 1 cm)
- robni luknjač (jaz sem uporabila tega)
- Spellbinders šablone
- luknjač z motivom metuljčka
- rožice
- perle
- kristalčke
- gesso (bel)

Darilo vrečko najprej prepognite na mestu, ki je prikazano na spodnji sliki.



Nato vse skupaj še enkrat prepognite na polovico.


Če vrečko razgrnete, dobite to ...


Z lepilom ali obojestranskim lepilnim trakom prilepite spodnji del vrečke na osnovo.


Nato od spodnjega dela vrečke do sredinskega pregiba z lepilom ali obojestranskim lepilnim trakom zlepite stranska dela vrečke (zgoraj in spodaj).


Po želji vse obrobe in pregibe pobarvajte z akrilno barvo, ki se bo ujemala z barvo vašega dekorativnega papirja.


Na mesti, kjer piše "tape", prilepite obojestranski lepilni trak.


Pripravite "strani" za vašo embalažo. Potrebovali boste štiri kartončke v velikosti 9.5x7.5 cm in en kartonček v velikosti 7.5x4.5 cm (v primeru, da boste uporabili vrečko drugih dimenzij, prilagodite velikost "strani").


Ko boste lepili levo sredinsko stran (stran, na kateri bo žepek za darilno kartico), najprej prilepite dekorativni kartonček na stran, šele nato čez "žepek".



Na prvo in na zadnjo stran nalepite trak, da boste embalažo lahko zavezali - to storite preden boste prilepili dekorativna kartončka.


Embalažo okrasite po svojih željah. :)


Jaz sem za naslovnico izbrala štampiljko Mama Elephant in romantičen papir proizvajalca Craft and you. Dodala sem še nekaj izrezov, ki so narejeni s Spellbinders šablonama ter nekaj rožic proizvajalca I am roses. Za zavezovanje sem uporabila bel organza trak. Motiv je pobarvan z distress blazinicami.

Takole je videti sredinski del moje embalaže.


Na levi strani je prostor ("žepek") za darilno kartico, ki sem ga okrasila s perlami in borduro, ki sem jo naredila z luknjačem.


Na desno stran pa sem odtisnila napis, ki je iz istega seta kot motiv, ki sem ga uporabila na sprednji strani.


V embalaži se skriva tudi drobno (ustvarjalno) presenečenje. ;)


Tako, to je to za danes. Upam, da vam je vodič všeč. Želim vam čim lepši dan! :)

I'd like to enter my gift card holder to the following challenges:

What is your favourite colour?

Hello everybody! I am back with a new card. :) A new challenge just started at The sketchy challenges blog and this time we would like to see what will you create with your favourite colours. A pretty simple challenge, right?

Well, normally I would say my favourite colours are pastel colours, pink, teal etc., but I didn't use those on my card. And I am not cheating, I swear. lol It is just that it depends on the occassion what colours I choose for my project. I for one can't make a pink and teal Easter card. I know some (probably many) of you can, but I can't. My favourite colours for making Easter cards are yellow, orange, red, maybe a bit of green here and there. So those are the colours I chose for my card today.


Currently my "go to" papers are from My mind's eye's paper pad (The sweetest thing - tangerine). I used those on this card too. Again I used a sweet bunny from CC design for the center of my card. 


The other stamped images are from The Greeting Farm. I did the colouring with pencils.

I embellished the card with some pearls, ribbon and some flowers. Most of them are from I am roses, and the rest are from my stash.


So much from me today. Have a great day! xx

Allsorts: Be there or be square
Cute card Thursday: Anything goes
Cupcake inspirations: Bunnies
AnMa Creatief: Spring/Easter
Craftyhazelnut's patterned paper challenge: Use patterned paper
The corrosive: Anything goes
Creative inspirations: Springtime
Word art Wednesday: Anything goes

Tilda with little chickens

Hello everybody! I'm here today with a new card. I decided to play with another recently released stamp from Magnolia's Sunbeam collection - this time I chose Tilda with little chickens.


Isn't she a cutie? I really like this whole collection. I stamped the image on neenah solar white paper and coloured it with pencils. It's hard to see in the photo, but I also played with my pencils to create background. 


I made the flowers myself. I used Whimsy stamps Lily flower die set, Rosy dot AC3 dies, several different stamens and 2 different colours of foamiran.  Other embellishments I used on my card are white berries, lace, pearls and paper doily. I also used one of the newly released doohickeys - Wedding lace. Papers are from MME.


This is it from me for today. See you again soon. :) Have a beautiful day! xx

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Love to scrap: April showers bring May flowers
Magnolia forever: Spring
Crafteezee: Flowers
Stamping sensations: One for the girls
All about Magnolia: All about spring
Lovely Hanglar or sweet Magnolia: Spring flowers
Simply Magnolia: With pearls
Midweek Magnolias: Anything goes

Hop to it

Hello everybody! How are you doing? How was your Easter? Did you do anything special or you don't even celebrate it? We had a traditional family breakfast at my grandparents' place. It was lovely. 

We have a new challenge for you at Magnolia-licious challenge blog and the theme is "Anything goes with option rain". I went with AG and made a cute little tag that I used on one of the Easter gifts.


I used the new bunny stamp from one of the Magnolia's Sunbeam collection. I stamped the image on neenah desert storm paper and coloured it with my pencils. Tag is an older Magnolia die. I didn't find it in the store, but if you message Shawn (the owner) I'm sure he will try his best to get it for you. Did you know Shawn also sells lace in his store? The one I used on my tag is from there. ;)

This is it for today. See you again tomorrow. Bye bye
