Friday Fun Day! Embellishment Folder

It’s Friday and that means another Friday Fun Day project! I’ve really been enjoying creating these projects for you and I hope you’re giving them a try!

How do you store your Stampin’ Up! embellishments?  Do you keep them in a stamp case, a drawer, wherever you can find a spot?  I was keeping my embellishments in a couple of stamp cases which were starting to become difficult to close!  I created this folder which can now sit on top of my work space and be within easy reach.  The folder is designed with three compartments, however, more compartments can be added with slight adjustment of the sides.  The added bonus is that the folder is decorated with the beautiful Pretty Prints DSP and a ribbon closure!

The folder does eat up a bit of cardstock, but this folder was designed to hold up over time.  This may not be the storage solution for you but if you’re struggling with how best to store your embellishments this may be the right option.  The folder was designed to be large enough to hold embellishment packages that are over-sized.  The finished dimensions are: 7-1/2″ L x 6″ H x 2″ W. When full the folder is free standing but will fold flat when empty for easy storage.

I hope you enjoy today’s project! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

My little helper

I mentioned my little helpers before…the furry variety of helpers. Here’s Maezie giving me a hand while I was photographing cards…she’s sitting on the recliner arm next to the light box.

She says this is her “good side”! Too cute!

Friday Fun Day! Fairy Light Lantern

Happy Friday! I have a truly fun project for you today. I’ve been thinking about designing a small fairy light for a while now and finally sat down to figure out design and measurements. The best part is that each lantern can be made from only one sheet of 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock! Of course, you’ll need to add vellum and any decorations you’ll want to use on your lantern, along with a battery-operated tea light.

The lantern consists of two panels that form the four sides of the lantern, a top and a bottom. The bottom of the lantern is assembled and glued in place so that you can place a tea light inside. The top of the lantern is removable. A piece of twine was added for a hanger. While this lantern might look complicated, it truly was quite easy to put together. Included instructions are complete with plenty of photo references.

I think I’ll be making this lantern again in the near future…well, at least this year. Think how fun these would be to make and decorate for Halloween and Christmas! I can hardly wait! What are your ideas for decorating this lantern? Let me know in the comments below.

This lantern is intended for use with a battery-operated tea light only. Do not use an open flame in this lantern!
