Paper Crafting Projects


Crafter’s Companion Envelopes

Crafter’s Companion has some really helpful tools for making cards, envelopes, and boxes.  For these envelopes, I used “The Enveloper” and made them quickly and easily!  The tool comes with a guide for making all different sizes of envelopes, including dimensional ones!  It’s great to have an envelope that matches the card. I made several to hold gift cards along with a matching note.




Explosion Box with Cutting File

These Explosion Boxes are well-known on the internet, but I’m enclosing the WPC cutting file for it for anyone with that capability.  Here is a good YouTube manual template.  I found these beautiful 2013 monthly vintage calendar pictures on Etsy and plan on using them for several different projects.  The inspiration for using the monthly calendar for the Explosion Box came from Marianne.





Accordian File Purse with Cutting File

This accordian style purse is sized at 6″ x 4.5″ to fit cards, recipes, photos, and coupons.  Here is the WPC CUTTING FILE I made for this project.  I even included some miniature clothespins I found at Hobby Lobby to attach to whatever is placed in the purse for better organization.  The top flap attaches into place easily with strong magnets. This was such fun to make and I am planning on making more of these!   Inspiration for this great project came from here.
