Handmade Card Video Tutorial
Although this tutorial is from my Spanish Crafting Channel, Manualidades de Decor8yourlife, I make certain to show you the measurements that I use. It’s a fun and easy to follow DIY; and even if you don’t speak Spanish, it’s fun to listen to me stumble on a language skill I’m so desperately trying to regain!
Don’t have time to watch the five minute video? Not a problem! These cards are so easy to make, I can give you my measurements right away! Since these are 4×3 Cards, you will cut your card-stock at 4×6 then fold it right down the middle, by holding it horizontal wise. You then cut your first layer (which adheres right on the white card stock) an eighth of an inch less then place on top of cardstock. You then cut your second layer (which is the top layer) and eighth of an inch less than your first layer, decorate it with your die-cuts, ribbons, sequin, etc. and adhere. (Remember that less is more!)
Go ahead and watch the video for the full process. Thank you for stopping by! I’ll see you again next week!
This cute Note Card Gift Box Tutorial was inspired by my need to make the perfect gift box to fit my 3×4 note cards. In the hopes of clearing out papers that have been sitting in my stash for awhile, I decided to start my Holiday projects. This year I plan to send out quite a few cards and gifts to as many folks as I can. But I didn’t just want to box them in. I wanted that perfect fit!
Easy DIY Handmade Cards
The cards are 3×4. I decided to cut my cards to this dimension because I wanted them to be used as greeting cards or note cards. These cards are dimensional, simple and elegant. You may ask yourself, how can I get the same effect? My answer to that is layer your paper and less is more!
Let the Paper do the Work for You!
There’s nothing like beautiful scrapbooking paper! As paper crafters we can be really bad about hoarding beautiful paper. However, use it up we must! And what better way to make room for the great new designs than to make some cards and gift boxes with the old ones?
Easy to Create with dies from Spellbinders
You will never be out of ideas or loose your creativity when you have dies from Spellbinders in your paper crafting arsenal. And all that beautiful paper deserves a beautifully well cut design!
