Make this Tri-fold Gift Card Holder

You are going to love my Tri-Fold Gift Card Holder. It's so easy to make and will leave the recipient saying, "You shouldn't have, but I'm glad you did". In my FB Live video replay below, I've used the Country Club Designer Series Paper and Clubhouse Bundle in demonstrating how to make my Tri-fold Gift Card Holder. And what perfect time for making and giving these. Dads, grads, and teachers will love them. Or use them for birthdays and congratulations or just because you want to surprise someone with something fun. 

 

Clubhouse Bundle & Country Club Designer Series Paper

The color combination on this Tri-fold gift card holder with the argyle DSP showcased is a take on black, white, and a splash of color.

Introducing my Folding Box Card

The Folding Box Card is a fun fold card layout I've seen many times over recent years, but never tried until now. I love how it turned out. In my video replay of my April 16th Facebook Live on my Stampin' Peace VIP Group, you'll find a video tutorial and two versions of my Folding Box Card with both featuring the new Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper with its floral images in fresh summery colors.

Replay - Monday's Make It With Mary

I'm excited to have introduced Monday's Make It with Mary on my Stampin' Peace VIP Facebook Group. Now through the end of May, I'll be going Live at 11am EST each Monday. A few hours before the start of each Monday's Make It with Mary FB Live, I'll post a list of supplies for you to bring to your craft table. That way you can create right along with me. Afterwards, I invite everyone to post a photo in the comments showing what they made. What a wonderful way to share creativity with each other.

Here is the video replay from today's Make It with Mary Facebook Live. My list of supplies today included a color card stock card base cut to 4 1/4" x 11"; 2-3 pieces of coordinating DSP 4" x 5 1/4"; Whisper White card stock cut to 2 3/4" x 4 1/4"; any stamp set, embellishments & trim you wish to use; and basic card making supplies (cutter, paper snips, adhesives, etc).

I chose to use Ornate Garden Specialty DSP with Terracotta Tile card stock, Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack, Gilded Gems, and Ornate Thanks Stamp Set. I then proceeded to demonstrate an easy Fun Fold Card that viewers could make with their own choice of DSP, card stock, and other supplies. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's creations on my Stampin' Peace VIP Group this week.

I made a second card - same fun fold card layout, same card stock color, same sentiments, but I used the REVERSE side of each of the DSP's in the first card. A few changes, a whole new card just as great as the first. Boy, do I love working with the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP!

Kids Crafting

With so many more parents home with children right now, I thought in the coming weeks, I would share some kids craft ideas. In the following Facebook Live Video Replay, I show 4 different ways to craft Tic-Tac-Toe boards & pieces for kids from preschool and up. Watch my video, then gather some supplies with your kiddos and make your own Tic-Tac-Toe games with ideas and tips I shared. Remember in these stressful times of Covid-19, we are all having to make changes in our daily lives. Connecting with others in new ways is more important than ever for us to find calm in this storm. Happy crafting and happy gaming!

I repurposed a box that a Stampin' Up! All-Inclusive Card Kit came in to make a Tic-Tac-Toe game in. Game & storage all in one!Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

 

No box to make your Tic-Tac-Toe game board in? No worries. My video tutorial will show you how to make a game board that is scored and cut to fold up and store in ziploc bag with your game pieces.

Stampin' Up! Full Wide Stamp Cases are great for making "travel style" Tic-Tac-Toe games. Plus they too are a "game & storage in one" craft. Just add magnet sheet.Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Come Sail Away Trinkets, &  Full Wide Stamp Case by Stampin' Up!

 

I used Glue Dots to adhere Come Sail Away Trinkets onto 1" card stock circles for game pieces. I then used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere magnet piece to back of each game piece.Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Come Sail Away Trinkets, &  Full Wide Stamp Case by Stampin' Up!
