Quick Cards, Made Quicker


Hello! I hope you're enjoying our blog and gathering ideas for your own paper crafting. We're having a lot of fun bringing daily projects to you, using SRM Stickers. Did I mention that we're crazy for stickers?! Have you visited our online store yet? If you have, please tell us what you purchased and what you plan to do with it - we'd love to hear!







I have a tutorial for you today, using several SRM Stickers from various sticker sets. My sister, LuLu, loves to make cards...but, she likes 'em super quick & easy. I decorated and filled this little magnetic tin for her to use when card making. I filled it with layered card sentiments, just waiting to be attached to a card. She can pop open the tin, grab a coordinating sentiment, and she's good to go!

I started by cutting a 1" strip of patterned paper and adhering it to my tin. I then wrapped it with ribbon, tied a bow, and placed mini glue dots under the ribbon to keep it in place.





I used two different scalloped circle punches along with my 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" circle punches.





I placed my SRM circle stickers onto white cardstock, punched them out, adhered them to a black larger circle, then attached them to scalloped circles using foam dots.





I stacked them inside of the magnetic tin.





Of course I had to make an accompanying card!





I trimmed a piece of chocolate cardstock to 4x8", scored, and folded in half. I cut a 3 3/4" of patterned paper and rounded the edges. I punched two scalloped ovals, and embossed the smaller one. A SRM Sticker greeting was adhered to a piece of patterned paper and trimmed. I gathered coordinating ribbon and gems.








I'll be back tomorrow with a peek at what's in store for March. We have a themed month ahead with GOBS of projects for you. The Designers are hard at work! Until tomorrow...

What a fun idea, Jen!I think I just might do that with some of my stickers, too.

And, I don't know that what we do could be called WORK- it's so fun to HAVE to play with these stickers.
