A step-by-step pictorial guiding you in making your own treat bags.
so lets begin…

step1

1.jpg

 
I took an A4 size paper. 
(The paper size would depend on the size of your gift.)
Folded half-inch margin at one edge.
Folded the remaining paper into half.

 
step2

Folded /Scored half an inch at the one end of this folded paper
and one and a half inch at the other end. 

2.jpg
step3
 Opened the sheet and cut the marked parts. 
 
3.jpg
step4
 
On cutting/trimming the marked parts, you get a sheet with scored sides.
 
4.jpg
step5
 I took Archival ink and my favorite stamp sets.
I took two images from the stamp set and stamped the images randomly all over the sheet (rotating the image randomly) Let the ink dry before the next step.

step6
Here, I have used different colored papers to make the treat bags. You can also use a white sheet and lightly color these stamped images. 
 
5.jpg
step7
 
Once the ink dried, I adhered the adhesive tape to the two margins on the sheet. Peeled open the tape and assembled the treat bag by bringing in the sides together. The one and a half inch margin remain open as it is the lid/cover of the treat bag.  Repeated the process with all the three bags.

6.jpg
And the treat bags are ready…. 
 
7.jpg
step8
To decorate the treat bags….
On a watercolor card-stock, I stamped the critters from the Hogs and Kisses stamp set, using Archival ink. Colored the critters with zig markers and fussy cut them. 
 
8.jpg
step9
Cut tags from scrap pieces of CS. 
Assemble the tag using the fussy-cut critters and the sentiments. 
 
9.jpg
step10
Now fill the treat bags, tie a ribbon/twine around it to close it. 
Tie the tag along with the ribbon/twine.

This is the first time i have used fun foils
To create both of my projects i have used, the
SIZZLING SILVER fun foil.

 

SIZZLING SILVER
these fun foils are super shiny and are of professional grade .
They work well with any lamination machine available,
if you want to heat transfer using these super shiny foils or
they can also be used with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils… which is great!!! since many of us do not have lamination machines at home, Craftyscrappers also have launched, the fun foil glue, that works perfectly with these fun foils.They come in 16 gorgeous colors to chose from as well.

 

 

Then i also used the amazing and one of a kind shimmer paste, that stand out from the rest of the products in the market.
The shimmer pastes that i used for the projects are

SHIMMER PASTE-TICKLED. 


These shimmer pastes add a fabulous layer of shimmer and shine to any craft project  and you can use any kind of stencils with these shimmer paste to create beautiful sparkling details and add the touch of beauty to any card, scrapbook or mixed media.
The best thing about them is that these can be used on paper, cardboard,chipboard,acetate, wood, glass,mdf,fabric and even on layered stencils.
These shimmer paste r so smooth and so shiny… that i love to work with it and the results are super-duper awesome.


To create my artwork. i have also used the
shimmer sprays.

FUN WITH SHIMMER PASTES N ACETATE:A layered card.

Hello Friends,
 
This is Priyanka over the blog today,
and I am going to share a tutorial on a fun layered card
with the twist of using acetate & shimmer pastes along!

FG

Here’s a look at the completed layered card:

1
 
 
The best part is it is really easy to make and yet unique in its design,

Possible image 1

So so let’s start with the process of making it….
(* picture heavy post!)

step1
 
Take a piece of acetate and select the shades of shimmer pastes to be used,
here I picked two shades “Dreams” & Envy”  from Craftyscrappers to get two different shades.
step2
Then using the   French Script stencil”  , took sufficient amount of shimmer paste and applied the shimmer pastes to the acetate sheet.
 
Next I picked an orange card from the cards set again from the store,
these have bright shades to choose from and are thick enough to handle layers and other mediums.

 
3
 
Isn’t it looking pretty? I loved the outcome on acetate.
step3
I decided to make a window on the card to fit the acetate sheet, so cut out a rectangular piece out of the card

4

 
Added the acetate to the cut out using both sided tape from the back side. 
 
step4
Next sprayed Shimmer Spray –Sweet Sunshine”  on a piece of pattern paper.
I must say these sprays are so perfect, they spread beautifully and just little is needed to spray; they give nice intense color.

step5
 
Mounted this to a brown cardstock and tied a twine to it.
Added this tag to my card.

Stamped a cute Hog image using the stamp set “Hogs and Kisses” and
colored it using faber castell connector pens.

Added this image to a piece of brown card-stock using double sided foam tape. 
step7
Stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and added this to the card.

Lastly added few rhinestones and drew black stitched lines around the window, using black gel pen.

FUN FOILS CARDS: a brief tutorial!

Hello Friends…
 
Hope you had an awesome weekend..
 
Here I’m back at Craftyscrapper’s blog with some fun cards using
Craftyscrappers FUN FOILS and SHIMMER PASTES ...
nj

This is the first time I’ve used foil in my cards and I really love the outcome…..
Craftyscrappers shiny transfer foils are professional grade and are proudly made in INDIA, and these super glitzy foils , add Stunning Sparkle and shine to your craft projects.

What stopped me till now was the investment in laminator machine for foiling….
But these fun foils are really fun to work with.
You don’t need any fancy tools for this..
They can be used with a lamination machine and also work like a charm with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils to your craft surfaces.

INNOVATIVE BUSINESS NAME PLATE :a complete tutorial!

Hello Friends,

I am back again on Craftyscrappers blog with my new mixed media project.
This one is a business name plate which I did recently for a friend
who is into Saree business.
I have used the super amazing and gorgeous products from Craftyscrappers which is launched recently in the name of  
“Shimmer sprays and Shimmer Pastes”
I totally loved using them,before I talk more on the versatility of these products,
let me show you some of the pictures of my project first.

Possible image 1

 

Here’s the complete Business name plate

 

1
So lets begin with the tutorial now….
step1
To make this one, I took a cardboard piece of size 7×8 inches and started pasting some scrap thin sheets of various colors card stocks….
most of these strips were like leftovers from my earlier projects.
 
1a
step2
After that I took the Victorian stencil by Craftyscrappers and used it on the panel along with Blush shimmer paste and let it dry.
We can heat dry also these shimmer pastes with the help of heat tool in case want to fasten the process.
2a
 
step3
 
Once my paste dried,
I sprayed the shimmer paints on the paste…I still feel my picture is not justifying the real beauty of these sprays…
these sprays blends beautifully with the paste and cover desired surface.
I have used
Bitter lemon and Ocean waves shimmer sprays.
 
a

 
step4
Then I took a pattern sheet cut it first and then did hand tearing to make it look a little more designer.
 

IMG_20170908_010022IMG_20170908_010725

step5
 
Then i pasted it on the panel using Matt medium glue.
Next I used a
lady stamp from Craftyscrappers ,
hand painted it giving it a tint of gold by using Inka gold and creating Indian gold thread weaved Saree,
I have often seen my mom wearing such Sarees but getting the feel on paper was real fun to try.
Once all done ,have fussy cut it and pasted on the panel as shown in the pictures below…
step6
 
On the borders,I have used Washi tape   by Craftyscrappers…
this tape added much desired shiny border to my project.
 

Untitled-2.jpg

 
Next I have used some stamps from “U Sparkle” which gave meaning to the whole project.The word “Arbee” is brand name and not any stamp.
