Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and Pion Design’s “To My Valentine” collection has all the right colors and sweet angel images for your card and project decorating. This two-piece box uses this collection, and at 4″ x 6″, can hold a gift or lots of candy! For sturdiness, I made the boxes out of chipboard and then covered them with the papers. This project can also be found on the January 13 Pion Design blog here.
Now I want to introduce the fabulous new Easter collection from Pion Design. It has all the beautiful pastel colors and the designs are so delicate and beautiful! This collection may be their best yet!
Easter baskets and bunnies, egg hunting and blooming spring meadows. The Easter holiday is full of memories, and to celebrate this joyous season Pion Design releases the collection Easter Greetings. This pastel colored collection is like a bouquet of springtime, and makes the perfect starting point for countless projects sure to delight. With images and patterns such as violets, daffodils, eggs, chicks and butterflies you will find it easy to hold on to all those spring and Easter moments, and to share them with those around you. So welcome to send your warmest Easter Greetings!
Happy New Year! I want to start the year off by giving you the template for a wonderful triple pocket card! These cards were designed to have three pockets for pull-out tags or cards. One of my favorite things to give friends for the holidays or for birthdays, are handmade projects with recipe cards or photos for a personal touch. So having three pocket cards provides plenty of space with six sides. I’ve included a template below on how to construct this pocket card using one sheet of card stock. The second card was made using this template, but the other three cards were made a little larger, requiring two sheets of card stock. You will need to make additional tabs if you make the card larger.
Make the tabs 1/2″. Fold the scored lines but then lay it flat. Take the left piece and fold it up and over the middle piece and adhere the tabs. Then take the right piece and fold it under the middle piece and adhere the tabs. Now take the bottom piece and fold it up and over the middle piece and adhere. Once the card is constructed, you can make three cards or tags to fit inside the pockets.
These cards are also being featured on the 1/7/2016 Pion Design Blog here. I used several of their paper collections: Paris Flea Market, Linnaeus Botanical Journal, To My Valentine, From Grandma’s Attic-Tinted, Pion Design Palette, and Days of Winter.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy, and blessed New Year!
These Table Clocks were designed to be used as holiday gift boxes. The clock boxes were cut from chipboard and then covered with Pion Design papers from their collections Glistening Season and To My Valentine. These clocks can also be found on today’s Pion Design Blog here. I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season. It is certainly going by fast! Tara
