Photo Folio

Start with 3 pieces of cardstock cut at 6x6"

Score two of the pieces on one end at 1/4" and 1/2"

Cut two side pieces of cardstock at 5 3/4"x 3 3/4" 
Scor both on one of the long sides at 1/4" and 1/2"

Take one of the 6x6 pieces that you have scored and measure up from the end you scored on 3" and make a mark. do this on both sides. Then go to the top (opposite the scored end) and mark your center at 3". From you 3" center mark come out 1/2" on either side. this will make a 1" top piece. Now with a ruler join the 1/2" marks that you just made and the 3" side marks. Cut on this line to create the flap. Do this on both sides. 

Now assemble by taking your center peice, the 6x6 piece you didn't score, and place the edge on the 1/4" score line of the other two pieces. Use a double sided take to join together the top piece with the and the bottom. Then take your side pieces the 5 3/4" and center them on your middle section on both sides. 

All that is left to do now is mat and decorate.

Shirt Gift Bag Made From Regular Envelope

Take any size envelope that larger ones are better. Glue the flap shut with extra adhesive. Then cut a small piece off one of the ends, just to create an opening. Now score at 1/4" or 1/2" depending on how large of a side gusset you want. Score the same on all three sides. Do not score on the side with the opening. Reinforce your score lines and burnish. 

Now open the bag and put your had in using your fingers to push out and create the bottom. You will end up with two ear like pieces on either end, these will need to be glued down with a strong adhesive. This creates the bottom of the bag. 

On the sides push in on the center score mark creating the gusset. 

Now on the top where you cut the piece off to create the opening in the envelope, measure down 3/4" and draw a line. Then from either side measure in on that line you just drew and make a mark at 1 1/4". Cut on the line that goes across just up to the 1 1/4" marks you made. Do this on both sides. You are creating the part for the collar. Fold down each piece to create your collar and glue together. Don't glue down on the shirt part until you put your tie on.

Bunny Love

You will need a piece of paper 7x12 inches.
Start by scoring on the 7" side at 1" and 6"
Turn to 12" side and score at 4 1/2" and 6 1/2"

Round the top side up (the longest side from the score line) use anything to round it, a plate, cup etc.
Then round the bottom side down, so that you have a mirror image of the top. 

Cut the slits at the 4 1/2"x and 6 1/2" just up to the vertical score line. Take out a small wedge, so that it folds better. Put your adhesive on the flaps and close them up. You will have just enough paper to close the bottom and then just slant the side pieces in, to make the top of the box a little smaller than the bottom. 

The circles that I used is 2 1/4" for the bottom of the bunny, 1" scallop for the tail. And 1 3/4 oval for the feet with a 1 1/5" oval for the bottom of the feet (the pink part)

Then just decorate as you want to make a cut bunny love give box. 

Have fun! E
