Butterfly Mobile Project

This cool and colorful project is for our weekly subscribers. It is a butterfly mobile made with hand cut- or die cut butterflies in 5 sizes, strung onto ribbons.

I think this will look so pretty fluttering in the breeze under my dining room chandelier.

Hello and Happy Spring Chicks!

This is a fast and easy Spring Basket, perfect for a table favor (if you use a 6x6 piece of paper) or for a great Easter Basket (if you use a 12 x 12)

Score paper at 4 and 8, turn a quarter turn and score again at 4 and 8. Fold along score lines.
(for a 6x6 piece score at 2 and 4, then turn a quarter turn and score again at 2 and 4)

Clip from edge to first score line on two opposite sides,

Fold center piece in and then fold the two sides in as shown and fasten with glue- or staple.
Cut 1x12 piece of cardstock or patterned paper and attach for handle. Add ribbon along handle if desired.

Add flower or other embellishment to cover staple and handle end.

Watch the video below for step by step directions. Have fun!

Happy Tuesday!

Hi Chicks!
We have some fun free online projects coming for our friends who are doing the Northwest Paper Chase. Check back on us later today for a video to make a really cute spring basket.

I totally have Spring Fever- all of the stores have their colorful Spring decorations out, and I see the Cherry Trees are just getting ready to bloom- so exciting.

Happy Spring Banner for Subscribers

Hey Chicks
When we were getting ready for our big Workshop Weekend our subscribers got shorted a project and a layout that week. Hey- we needed to get some sleep that week!
So here is the make up project, a fun Happy Spring banner.

I love banners to bring in beautiful and bright color and add some great embellishments that you might have lurking in your scrapbook drawers.

So Happy Spring everyone! I can feel that warm weather right around the corner (right?)
