CTMH Christmas Crafts Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Christmas Crafts Blog Hop. This blog is affiliated with The Heartfelt Sentiment Group. If you are coming from Katy Taylor, then you are on the right track.

 Christmas is fast approaching and what special way to give out your gift than giving them in this cute card purse. I saw this cute project in Pinterest and tried it using CTMH White Pine paper packet. I includes the recipe to make this project.


1 piece of solid color cardstock ( Colonial White) 5 3/4" x 11"
2 pieces of printed card stock (White Pines) 4 1/8" x 4 3/4"
2 pieces of solid color cardstock (Fern) 1/2" x 4 3/4"
Stamp set
Scallop punch ( fern), 2" circle punch.
Scoring tool
2pc. of 11" of ribbon.
Double-side adhesive tape

Step 1
Score your 5 3/4" x 11" at 10 1/2", 6", 5 1/4" and 3/4"( Landscape).
Step 2-
Turn to portrait and score at 5".
Step 3-
Cut the bottom 4 score (vertical lines) stopping at the horizontal score lines.  Adhere the front , back and side panels using pattern paper and green card stock. Do not glue the box yet only the paper.
Step 5-
 Using a circle punch, cut a notch in the center of both the front and back of the box.
Step 6-
Place adhesive tape, fold and assemble the box.
Step 7-
Punch 2 hole on either side of the circle notch. attach ribbon. I glued buttons to decorate the box.


This is another nice way to present recipe cards or hand made card.


*Cut a 6 1/2" x 11 1/4" of solid cardstock.
*Score at 2 3/4", 3 1/4",7 1/2"& 8": crease folds. This will create the folder, with the largest section becoming the back of the folder.
*Cut a piece of coordinating ribbon 24" long. Find the center and put a 2" long piece of double-sided tape on the backside of the ribon; adhere horizontally to the back of the folder. Tie the recipe cards or hand made cards securely inside.
*Decorate. I used the strip from White Pine paper and added a decorative trim. Glue ribbon all around the folder and tie a bow. Embellish. Add Velcro where the top and bottom flaps meet.

CTMH Paper Blog Hop - White Pines

Thanks you  for coming to the "CTMH Paper Focus Blog Hop". This Blog hop is affiliated with Heartfelt Sentiment Group. This month we are using The "White Pines" paper packet. 
If you are coming from Kathy Taylor  then you are on the right track.
I have fallen in love with this beautiful  paper. The colors and prints are very festive.  I'm featuring this cute and simple card using the paper and the compliments that goes with this packet. I used Colonial White for the card and added pieces of the printed paper to the card. I stamped with black ink and used the "Twinkle" stamp set( S1510). I embellish with the White Pines Compliment stickers.(X7200C).

Finished size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

I also included a 3-D gift box using the Fern cardstock(X5777). With this box has a pull out drawer where you can put candy, tea bags,and more. I got this idea from You Tube. It's very easy to make.
Here are the directions-
  1. Cut one 3" x 12" of Fern Cardstock. Score @ 1, 4, 5, 8 & 9. fold.

Side view when folded
add strong adhesive .

    Cut one 4 7/8" x 4 7/8" of Glacier cardstock(X5770). Score 1" on all four sides.Fold and cut slit as marked in red see below.

 Punch a 1" circle and glue to one side of the box and with a hole puncher make a hole. Tie a knot at one end of the ribbon and pull it through the hole as shown. Use tape to secure ribbon to the inside of the box.

 Now you can decorate your box. I used a 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" of printed paper and adhered it to the outside and I use the same dimensions on a plain cardstock so you can right a message. Have fun!!
Now hop on to Sheila Wilkerson's blog for more ideas.
