We R Memory Keepers – Halloween Treat Boxes

Hello, crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a spooky (not so much) Halloween treat packaging idea created with several We R Memory Keepers tools.

You might know by now how much I love tags; I use them on almost all of my projects, so I thought it would be fun to make “loaded” ones to give as party favors or just as a treat on Halloween day.

I started by trimming the tags to measure 4×8 inches. I used two sheets of patterned paper and one of white heavy weight cardstock, which I sandwiched in the middle to make the tags sturdy and durable. With the Tag Punch Board I cut the corners of all three before adhering them together.

To make the box, the paper needs to measure 8×6 inches. With the help of the Mini Score Board, I creased it vertically at 1 and 2 inches, and horizontally at 4 and 5 inches, like in the photos below.

Next, I cut the two bottom squares formed by the creases on both sides of the paper, and again just in between the ones above. I applied strong double-sided adhesive to assemble the box, and adhere it to the front of the tag.

At this point it was just a matter of decorating the boxes and make them “spooky”. The first thing I did was create wire words with the Happy Jig. I love this tool so much!!! I can’t stop creating with it! It is perfect to personalize your projects. I used the copper wire to spell “Boo” (I have a black one in the photo below to show the design better) and the black one to spell “Spooky”.

I arranged several chipboard stickers and die cuts from the Pink Paislee Spellcast collection to form clusters on the front of the loaded tags, and finished them with a double bow I made using the 1-2-3 Punch Board.

Altenew September 2018 Washi Tape Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to the Altenew September 2018 Washi Tape Release Blog Hop + Giveaway.
You should have arrived from the amazing Laura Jane‘s blog. Here is the full list for your convenience:
Enza Gudor **You are here**
I am so excited about this fabulous Washi release. So many beautiful patterns and colors! There is something for everyone.
For my project today, I mixed Painted Orchids and Pastel Strokes Washi Tapes to decorate the cover of two mini notebooks.
I started by making the notebooks (you can find the tutorial here). They only measure 4×6 inches, so pretty tiny, but perfect to fit in your purse or take with you anywhere.

For the first one, I adhered the Pastel Strokes Washi Tape in the middle of the smooth white cardstock I used for the cover. I went all the way to the back, so to have a continuity in the design. Next, I fussy cut the beautiful floral images from the Painted Orchids Washi Tape (previously adhered to white cardstock) and arranged them on opposite corners of the front cover. I also cut the word “Notes” with the Brush Alpha Die Set, and placed it in the top portion.

The second notebook is simpler and came together in no time. I used the Painted Orchids Washi Tape to cover the whole front. The gorgeous wreath fit perfectly in the middle of the page.

To create some separation and make the colors stand out more, I covered the spine with the new Dots In Maple Washi Tape.

Crate Paper – 1 Product, 2 Ways: Ribbon Hanging Frames/Shaker Tag

Hello, friends! My second project for today is for Crate Paper. I’ll show you two different ways to use the Willow Lane Frames. I love the versatility of the Crate Paper products, and this one is especially fun to work with.

The first project is a home décor piece that worked perfectly for my daughters’ room. I used the frames to create a ribbon hanging photo holder.

I started by measuring the diameter of the frames and cutting the photos accordingly. I happened to have a punch that was the right size, but you can use scissors as well. It doesn’t have to be a perfect circle, as the edges will be covered by the frame; it’s just a personal preference, I guess. One thing to keep in mind is to use a strong double-sided adhesive, such as Super Sticky Red Tape by American Crafts, to adhere your pieces down. It really makes a difference, especially when you’re working with products that are not just paper.


Next, I chose the sentiment for the middle frame from the Ephemera Pack, and started decorating with various embellishments. I like adding dimensional elements to my projects, so that’s what I did here. I think it makes the frames pop more.

To adhere the frames to the ribbon, I again used double-sided adhesive. I folded the ribbon in half to create a hanging hoop at the top, and spaced the frames to about a half an inch from each other.

I love how it turned out!

The second project is a shaker tag. I love shakers and I love tags, so this was just the perfect combination for me. Here is what you’ll need:

• two frames
• foam adhesive
• sequins
• embellishments
• patterned paper.

I started by backing both frames with a piece of acetate to form the window. Next, I adhered foam to the back of one of the frames – I used a circular die to get an even piece.


I trimmed an embossed card from the Ephemera Pack to size, and glued it to the foam, but not before filling up the window with colorful sequins.

I adhered the ribbon on the top with hot glue, backed the second frame with patterned paper, and attached the two together to form the tag. At this point it was just a matter of adding a few finishing touches, and sentiments.
