Paper Crafting Projects


Baby Carriages

I made these baby carriages with a Pazzles cutting file that can be found here.  The top paper blanket can be lifted off and the carriage can hold a small gift or some candy. I used thin chipboard for the wheels and base of the carriage to give it support.  If you plan on putting something inside the carriage, regular paper will not be strong enough to support the project.  I enlarged the cutting file quite a bit to make the carriages larger than the original size of the cutting file.  They were made using Pion Design’s Theodore and Bella collection and can also be found on their March 11 blog post here.  I think they would make great party favors stuffed with candy for a baby shower, or they could be affixed to the top of a gift box or diaper cake.
Enjoy the day!


Drum Boxes

Hi!  This is my first project using the new Theodore and Bella collection by Pion Design.  This project can also be found on Pion Design’s March 9 post here  The collection has cute stuffed animal images and is great for projects and cards for children.

  These are papier–mâché round boxes with lids I found at Michael’s.  I covered them inside and out with the papers and spaced Tim Holtz Idea-ology ring fasteners around the box to thread the ribbon through.  They make such a special gift box for children.
Wishing everyone a very special day!


Card Holder and new Theodore and Bella Pion Design collection



Hi!  This project was made using a Pazzles Cutting file that can be found here.  This little card holder was made using the blues of Pion Design’s collection A Songbird’s Secret.  It was featured on Pion Design’s Jan. 25 blog here.  For sturdiness, I used the cutting file to cut thin Silhouette chipboard pieces and then covered the pieces with the beautiful paper.

Pion Design has yet another new collection they will be releasing this week.  It is called Theodore and Bella and I’ve enclosed a preview below.  It promises to be another gorgeous collection!


I hope everyone has a great week!
