SheetLoad ShortCuts & 2 Sketches 4 You

I finished my 3 projects for the SheetLoad ShortCuts DT call, so time to show them on my blog. The ShortCuts products are great to work with. It is fun to make a card using a clear or frosted card base instead of cardstock.

My first project is a card using a clear card base. I used Laura's Sketch #13 for the card design. Last week I didn't have time to create a card for 2 Sketches 4 You and really missed playing along. So.....this week I HAD to play so why not combine two challenges...



Supplies: ShortCuts Clear Card Patterned paper: October Afternoon Good Sheer Rub-ons: Imaginisce Merry Christmas Tools: Sizzix Stars die, Sizzix BigShot machine Ink: VersaColor Pinecone #171 Other: ribbon

My second project is a Gift Card Holder Folder (GCHF). The colors available are white, ivory, black and kraft. I used a white one. You can find instructions on how to assemble the GCHF here.



Supplies: ShortCuts Gift Card Holder Folder Patterned paper: October Afternoon Good Sheer Ribbon: Bazzill Rub-ons: Imaginisce Merry Christmas Tools: Sizzix Stars die, Sizzix BigShot machine, sewing machine Ink: VersaColor Pinecone #171

And my third project is a Triangle Box using a Frosted Full Sheet.



Supplies: ShortCuts Frosted Full Sheet Patterned paper: October Afternoon Good Sheer Tools: Cuttlebug Ice Crystal die, Sizzix Stars die, Sizzix BigShot machine, Scor-it Glitter: Ranger Stickles Button: Rusty Pickle Other: ribbon, cord

Creating a Triangle Box is fun and easy.
  1. Cut Frosted Full Sheet 10.5" long and 3.5" wide
  2. Score at 5.25" which is the base of both triangles, and the bottom of your box. I used my Scor-it tool to make scores.
  3. Make a mark at the center point (1.75") of the 3.5" side
  4. Score from the center tip to the bottom base corner on each side
  5. Fold sides inwards and upwards to bring them together to form the triangle box. I used double-sided adhesive to stick all sides together.
  6. Cover sides with your choice of patterned paper and embellishments
  7. Punch a hole through the top, and string a ribbon through it.
