Well hello there paper peeps! It’s almost Fri-yay woot woot! I have a super fun project to share with you today that I created using some of the goodies in the Cream & Sugar Kit!
Have you ever seen the Heidi Swapp Memory Dex Line? It’s super cute and has this darling gold & white striped box, then you make the little cards that go inside it? Ok! That’s my project for today, using the Pink Paislee Mini File Folders that you can find in the kit!
These file folders are the cutest little things and it’s a super easy way of creating cards to go in the box! I took the folders and sliced them all across the seam at the bottom so they were just single card-like pieces, then used the Memdex punch and made the holes at the bottom!
**Tip** If you don’t have the Memdex punch, just create holes at the bottom with your hole punch and cut little notches with your scissors! (And honestly, you really don’t have to have holes at the bottom to fit the cards onto the bars, you can totally just set your cards in the box like I did with this one because I accidentally put the stickers too close to the bottom oops! No biggie! )
I wanted to keep my cards kind of simple so I could finish the project in one sitting, so I just cut some snippets and word slices from this Pink Paislee paper from the kit, shown here: (which was perfect for this project!),
then used a few other embellishments from the kit, added some of my favorite recent pictures from my phone,
and it turned out really bright & happy! Plus it’s a great way to keep your memories right there at your fingertips!
Ok sooo I did do one kinda quirky thing because you know I just can’t leave anything alone heh heh… I’m sure a few of you will feel me on this… isn’t there just something adorable about a project sittin there that has all kinds of cute things stickin out of it? Flags, tags, bags? Out of the sides, the top, whatever?! I just love it! It just makes the project fun! It just screams “pick me up and love me!” It makes it interesting! Ok. Sooo an easy way to do that is take a pipe cleaner, I used sparkly gold ones, trim them down, and glue a word slice to it. Then just tape it to the front of your card with washi tape! Instant flags that will stick out and make you happy every time you look at it. BOOM.
Wait.. ok there’s one other quirky thing.. have you ever seen those fancy metal feet that are made to hold up boxes and things? Like these?
Ok so if you get these and spray paint them, they look super cute holding up your box! Just throwin that our there forya 😉
The most important part we need to remember about our projects, of course, are the amazing smiles & memories that fill them 😉 I love my people, and I’m not going to let one word go unsaid. I plan on letting them know just how much I love them every chance I get! So now I have to go back and journal on the back of each card lol!
If you purchase a kit, don’t forget to tag us up on Instagram with the hashtag #sugarmaplepaperco so we can drool over your creativity! Can’t wait to see your little box of chunky happiness!
