Gift Envelope and a Trinket box with the newly launched paper packs

3:10 pm Manu Gupta 7 Comments

Hello Everyone,

I'm Manu here and I'm sure you must have had a look of how gorgeous the new release from Papericous is, and also the awesome projects made by the DT members using the 'My Golden Garden' and 'The Vintage Attire' collections. The Vintage Attire premium stack is perfect for a blend of mixed media and the My Golden Garden is a paradise for flower lovers like me.

I have made two projects to be showcased using the lovely new collection, and both are perfect for gifting! The first project is a Gift Envelope which will make a nice option to gift out Shagans and the other is a Trinket box which is something very pretty and perfect to keep small keepsakes or even it can be loaded to gift out chocolates or anything fancy !

Lets check out the first project.

I totally love the idea of gifting out the shagan's in pretty handmade envelopes and add a personal touch to your gifting( and I prefer giving out cash since the recipient can then get anything of choice)

I have used papers from both stacks of the new release and it's really very difficult to pick up which one is the best of both!! They both are totally yummy!!!

Here's a closeup of the envelopes.

Couple of them together.

Here's the Trinket box made from the 'My Golden Garden' collection. The calm and gorgeous flowers in this collection is something to die for!

Well, running the scissors thru these papers were seriously involved a lot of efforts!

This trinket box is perhaps the more gorgeous one I have made till date!

Another view of the trinklet box!!

I hope you all liked my creations as much as I loved making them.
Do let me know your feedback and the september release is definitely a must have in your collection. I'm surely gonna go ahead and get me a few packs!!!

Lets wait for the next months release which will soon be revealed and I'm sure that the new one will rock too!!!

Happy Crafting!

My Golden Garden with butterflies!

10:29 am Unknown 10 Comments

Hello hello!

Once again, it's me Halak and Iet me warn you.... I definitely will be breaking some of your notions and ideas today pertaining to crafting.

Crafting is for experts.
Nope, not at all, it is for everybody, is easily accessible and a stress buster.

It takes up a lot of time!
Hell no! ^__^ Stay with me and I will prove you wrong!

Materials are always expensive.
Nope... you don't need to spend a bomb for quality products.
(The Papericious embellishment sheet that I used today, barely costs Rs. 120/-.)

I will take you through two projects...
A fun take on a traditional Christmas decoration - The Wreath
A Bonus Project, classic Halak style!

So what are we waiting for... let's get to it.

The Wreath has cool step by step photos and I will be giving written step by step instructions for both projects. (Bonus project is pretty self-explanatory so just one picture there!)

The Wreath - (Project #1)

You know, this pretty wreath base is made out of recycled material. An old packing cardboard box that I had.
(Create Art + Save the environment, is that awesome or what!)

I cut up a part of the box and drew a 5.5" circle on it and cut it out. (Using a rounder from an old geometry box)

I drew another circle using the same point as center within the bigger circle. This circle was 3.5".

Then, I cut this smaller circle too which created this ring. (Reminds me of a donut, so let's just call it that!)

Here's the picture.

So with the base for my Wreath ready, I began gathering the pretty decorations that'd go on top of this.

1. The embellishments I fussy-cut from the beautiful Papericious embellishment sheet - My Golden Garden.
(It's a pack of 2 sheets having the same design and is absolutely GORGEOUS!)
IT IS JAM PACKED with loads of designs so all you gotta do is fussy-cut them.

Here are my beautiful embellishments all ready to be adhered onto the project.

Look at them... soooo very pretty!

2. After this is done, all you need are a couple of flowers in different sizes and some sequins.
(Those teeny tiny butterflies that you see are punched out using Papericious Vintage Attire paper stack!)

I love the whole white Christmas, golden glow theme so I used golden sequins, but hey, you can pick whatever color you like!

Here are the additional embellishments.

So now we are all set...

What to do now?
Just layer the pretty Papericious embellishments and the additional assortments in a way and pattern you fancy.

It could be so much fun sitting to craft this with your kid and letting them pick and arrange stuff! ^__^

Here you can see I layered the Papericious embellishments and the flowers first.

Once I was pleased with the arrangement, I glued it down (using fevicol) and finished it off with some sequins.

And there you have it! One easy peasy project that looks pretty, is cost effective and takes barely 25 mins to make!

(As an afterthought, I also added some flowersoft in the inner circle edge of the wreath, {see first pic} but you could also use glitter or flocking powder... or, just leave it as-is like how you see in this last picture!)

Tips : I made this small Wreath for my cupboard but you can make a bigger one for your room door or make tiny ones and adhere them to cardstock to make beautiful Christmas greetings too! ^__^
Also, because it has an unconventional design, you can keep this all year around and not just during Christmas!

Now, when I finished this project, I had some Papericious embellishments remaining.
(I punched out some more butterflies from the GORGEOUS Vintage Attire paper stack, took some pink rhinestones, inked up a stamp and got to my second project!)

Project #2


^__^ Simple little card just created to brighten your day and inspire you.

Here's how I made this :

1. Stamped Sentiment

2. Placed butterflies (punched out from Papericious Vintage Attire Paper Stack)
(Yes, don't give me that look. I am smitten by this paper stack..
Absolutely LOVE it!)

3. Placed my remaining embellishments from Golden Garden embellishment sheet.

4. Glittered up the word "Be" and the two big blue butterflies in white glitter and added the remaining golden sequins + 2 pink rhinestones.

5. The border at the bottom you see is a 1" tacky tape covered with golden glitter! (Yes, it is that easy!)

Total time taken for Project #2 = 12 minutes.

So you see, it's not as tough as it seems. Dream, imagine, create, recycle and have a lot of fun!

Till next time! *Hugs*

"Dream" Mixed Media canvas !!

11:16 pm Hussena 10 Comments

Hello friends,
                    This is Hussena here and today I am sharing a Mixed Media Canvas I have made using our this month's release - "The Vintage Attire" and "The Golden Garden" collections. The Vintage Attire premium collection has some really beautiful prints, perfect for creating any backgrounds and all the Mixed Media fans would love the designs in this pack. I have used the Vintage Attire to create the base of my canvas design by doing paper tearing and layering these papers using Gel Medium, then I gessoed over it. Here's a look at it :

 Close up of the flowers paper pieced from The Golden Garden collection and the background paper using The Vintage Attire!

The word 'Dream' has been cut from the Circular Collage Sheet- Be You.

I've also used the leaves from the co-ordinating Embellishment sheet from the Golden Garden collection. This canvas also has some handmade flowers, chipboards, and textures using modelling paste, glass glitter and paints.

I hope you like my first attempt at a canvas using our Papericious new collections. Both of them are really gorgeous and I had lot of fun creating the canvas using these papers!!

Have a nice day everyone!

Gift Card Envelope with Tutorial-My Golden Garden

9:13 am Artforte 12 Comments

Dear Friends

The festive season is also a season of gifts. Gifting is a blessing for giver and receiver both. Many times in-spite of our best efforts, we are unable to invest time to select a gift for our loved ones. The best option is to give a Gift Card… But let your gift card speak about your personality – about your love and respect for the person to whom you are giving it to. Presenting a gift card envelope that would make the receiver just say WOW..!!!

Made from acid free paper using the newest pattern paper stack of Papericious,  “My Golden Garden” and the embellishment set of " My Golden Garden" the envelope is covered with lovely paper flowers(fussy cutting from the embellishment set-they are super gorgeous), sealed with a band which highlights the essence of your relation – fresh and gorgeous. You open the card to find the Gift Card, flanked by notes to your loved one making the card a cherished possession. It also has two pockets which open up to show photos that are close to your heart and the relation you share with the person to whom this card is presented.

Now The Tutorial Part:
Things required: Card-stock, trimmer, scoring board, papericious blending tool, distress ink, scissor(for fussing cutting),papericious embellishments set-my golden garden and papericious pattern paper-my golden garden.

So lets start:
Take a card-stock measuring H: 7.25", W: 11.50"
Scoring at 4.5", 4.75", 9.25", 9.5 and distress the edges and at some edges i have used inka gold also

 For Inside Pocket which measures W: 4.5", H: 8.25, scoring at .5", 7.75"(at the longer side of the card-stock) make two pockets. Photo matt size is 4.125", H: 7

once you cut the cardstock, and paste the pattern paper and you can see the slits which i had done at one of the pocket, at the gap of 1.5" and then paste the pattern paper at the back of this pocket applying glue on the edges only so that u can insert the gift card and tags and then paste this pocket at the base of the cardstock on the left side.

Outer Jacket measures: H: 2", W:10.5", scoring at 4.625", 5", 9.625", 10" and then decorate it .
I have used inka gold on the edges and on the fussy cut edges used the gold embossing powder.

In fact it is much more than a card. It’s a piece of your emotion, presented with love to someone you care for. Let this card speak about you, your elegance and your grandeur.
Let this card make your bond even stronger.

I hope you all will enjoy the tutorial and give your feedback ...

Have A Nice Day and Happy Festivities


A Card, with a twist!

10:38 am Unknown 14 Comments

Hello and Good Morning! ^__^

I'm Halak and I'll be taking you through one really fun project AND a bonus project with step by step instructions!

Papericious has come up with two beautiful premium paper stacks Vintage Attire and My Golden Garden along with matching embellishment packs to co-ordinate with both the packs, sold separately.

For my project this is the GORGEOUS sheet that I used from Vintage Attire. (I'll have to admit here that I sobbed while cutting paper from this stack... it is my favorite out of all the Papericious stacks and I just wanted to hoard it till the end of time!)

Hmm... I know what you are thinking... It looks like a normal card.... what's the twist?!

BOOM! Check it out! (And you thought it's all rainbows and butterflies!)

The front tag is held by a brad that swivels to reveal a hidden space behind it with an additional message.

Ha ha.. so you see, sometimes a funny card is all you need to cheer someone up!

Let's get to the steps!

1. On white cardstock base I covered half side with yellow distress ink and the other half with Papericious Paper.
Tip : To make this card, get a good quality thick cardstock for base as it helps hold the layers of paper together better and avoids warping.

2. Added a bit of red ink with a water brush and some texture using stencils with brown and black distress inks.
(Not only does Papericious paper take inks really well, but it is also, Acid and Lignin free!)

3. Stamped a goofy looking dazed birdie and colored him up and adhered to project.
Tip : I used red, yellow and green for my project, so I colored the bird using the same color combo to make the card one cohesive piece.

Birdie, stamped and ready to color!

4. After this I fussy-cut some embellishments from Vintage Attire and My Golden Garden.
(These are AWESOME, they match and compliment the paper stacks beautifully and stamping on the labels to make your custom die-cuts is a breeze!)

Here are the embellies.... oh-soooo-pretty!

The sentiment I used is : "You're Super Old."

So, I stamped "You're Super" on the label and "Old." went on top of the birdie in the hidden space.

5. Adhered the embellishments onto the tag using fevicol and added a tiny black brad to affix the tag onto the project.

And that's it! Easy peasy!

Of course I used the Papericious Ink Blending Tool for all the stenciling and color blending that I did on the card. It's really awesome, available in circle / rectangle shape and if you haven't got it yet, well, what are you waiting for?! ^__^

BONUS project!

The embellishment sheets were so awesome and for the first time in my life, I didn't struggle with fussy cutting so I went ahead and made another project!

Here it is!

A thank you card.

I love stamping... and if it were up to me, I'd stamp even the walls of my house... but you know... sometimes we have such time constraints that getting out all craft supplies and making a card is practically impossible!

What to do?
Fear not! Papericious to the rescue!

What I have done is cut up the beautiful flowers and label from Vintage Attire, stamped sentiment on label, added a piece of pattern paper (from the lovely My Golden Garden paper stack), added a couple of sequins and sprinkled some glitter on red tacky tape on top left of the card to add a bit of sparkle!

That's it! Super easy and takes just 15 mins to make!

So... I guess that's it for today... till next time folks!
Hope you enjoyed reading it and that it inspired you to create something new!

*Big Panda Hugs*
