Paper Crafted Gift Purses

Welcome to my blog,  Paper Crafting With Rebecca! Have you ever had a gift for somebody that is flat... such as a stamp set, a pad of decorative paper, a small book... but didn't want to put it in a gift bag because the bag wasn't the proper size? Perhaps it is a small gift, such as a piece of jewelry or a gift card, and you want it to be packaged in a gift bag personalized to the receiver. Maybe you need to make a batch of party favors and then transport them to the event without them getting "smooshed". If so, this easy project is for you! I love this super easy gift bag design because it can be personalized via a variety of techniques (stamping, die cutting, seasonal papers, etc.) and it travels well. I made a video giving you the basic design... you get to add your own ideas and embellishments from there! To make the small bag I demonstrated in the video, the measurements are as follows: Patterned paper cut 4.5" x 6". Score 0.5" on all f

Making "Magic" Cardstock

Welcome to my blog,  Paper Crafting With Rebecca! It's summertime! That means there are children home from school and needing activities to keep them entertained and having fun. I made a video today to show you a fun crafting project that will amaze children (and adults)! Isn't that fun! What did you think of this video? Pictures magically appearing on the surface of the cardstock are sure to entertain children on a rainy day. The measurements I used for the magic paper and little note cards are: I started out with 3" x 3" squares of the White Daisy Cardstock, but once the magic appears and the cardstock dries (either naturally or with the help of a heat tool) I trimmed them to be 2.5" x 2.5" square. The patterned paper is cut to 2.75" x 2.75" square. The notecards are made from a strip of the White Daisy Cardstock cut to 3" x 6" and folded in half. Here are the completed samples from today's video.

Open Design Card

Welcome to my blog,  Paper Crafting With Rebecca! I was so excited to play with the Close To My Heart (CTMH) Stamp of the Month for July I jumped into it two weeks early! I made a couple of "open design" cards using this fun stamp set and paper from the CTMH Into The Wild paper collection. I created a video while making one of the cards if you would like to follow along: Three cards, same basic design, but using different papers. This patterned paper had the mountains already printed on it, I just cut it to size to fit the card. This is the card I made in the video above... a green bear! This card is a bit different as I used a tree-line border die for the bottom part. I also used White Daisy Cardstock inside the card to give me room to write a personal message inside the card. So that is the fun I wanted to share with you today!  I hope you enjoyed the video. I truly appreciate your support and encouragement when you com

Technique: Toddlers Can Stamp, Too!

Technique: Vellum "Stained Glass" Butterflies

Welcome to my blog,  Paper Crafting With Rebecca! For today's entry I wanted to show you how to make butterflies out of vellum that look as if they are stained glass. I decided the easiest way to demonstrate this technique would be with a video. So I recorded my first video demonstration! Please tell me in the comments below if you like this format and if you think I should do videos such as this again. Thank you for your suggestions and support.
