Bookmark Gift Card Holder

By : Team Craftwell
Design Team: Liz (Unik By Yes) Week 16 Cycle 9

As we get closer to school being back in session, we start thinking of those back to school teacher gifts! And today, Liz shares with us a cute bookmark giftcard holder idea! See the tutorial below!

Hello Crafty Friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Today I want to share with you another little box, this one is a gift card holder. I love the way our Core’dinations cardstock makes any project look more polished effortlessly ;), gotta love that!

For this box I used a template found on 350 Cards & Gifts Magazine, but instead of using an image for the cover I used Core’dinations Card Stock  embossed and distressed.

Creative supplies:

Core'dinations Textured Brights collection
Core'dinations Solid Dyed Smooth Texture
Permanent double sided tape
Seam binding ribbon
Washi tape
Sentiment (mine is from CASual Fridays) on the card holder
Regency Craftwell EF

Creative process:

Cut the template. Using thin dies cut a 6x4” piece of Core’dinations and run it thru my eBoser using Craftwell's Regency embossing folder.

Assemble the box and glue to cover.  Please note that I folded the top tabs in half to create the opening for the “bookmark”. For the “gift card holder/bookmark” use a 6x 2.25” rectangle and score at 2” on the long side. Fold over and run a piece of Washi tape around it to create a pocket for your card. Punch a hole on the top and add a tassel using some embroidery floss.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Have a super crafty day!


Thank you Liz!

DIY Subway Art Ceramic Coasters

By : Team Craftwell
Design Team: Jessica Kephart Week 16 Cycle 9

This month flew on by with all the busy fun our design team has had with Core'dinations cardstock! See Jessica's subway Art coasters project below!

Good morning Crafters! Jessica here again from Homespun Elegance. Well, this is the Final Week working with our July Sponsor, Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock

My best friend just bought a new home and I wanted to make something for them, so I made these cute Subway Art Coasters with the Teresa Collins Craftwell Embossing Folder and CORE'dinations Vintage Color Core Cardstock. 

These are quite simple to make and it's just a few steps! 

Step 1: Purchase 4 4x4 Ceramic Tiles. Clean and dry them thoroughly. 

Step 2: Create your Embossed Cardstock with the eBosser and Teresa Collins Subway Art embossing folder. Cut to size. 

Step 3: Using Mod Podge, lay down a thick layer of adhesive with a paint brush and secure your pieces to the tile. Use another generous coat of Mod Podge on the top of the cardstock. 

Let them dry overnight and place felt pads for furniture on the bottom side to prevent scratching on your furniture! 

Tie them off with a sweet ribbon and they are ready to be given as a gift and better yet!? I made this for under 2.00!! 

So what do you think? Will you be trying these? 

Supplies Used: 

Craftwell eBosser
CORE'dinations ColorCore Cardstock "Vintage"
Craftwell Teresa Collins Embossing Folder "Subway Art"
Mod Podge Matte 
May Arts Ribbon

Hot Air Balloon Party Favor Box

By : Team Craftwell
Design Team: Pam Bray Week 15 Cycle 9

There are few things in the world as magical as a hot air balloon, and when you put that magic into a party favor, it really brings something special to the event! See how Pam Bray create these cute favor boxes below!

Hi today I am sharing with you how to  make Hot Air Balloon Party Favor Boxes. These are super easy to make and can be used for lots of different occasions...

Start by getting your eBosser ready with the platforms and your hot air balloon die, along with your Core'dinations Nostalgic Paper Pad. Cut two of each of the balloons using your favorite papers from the paper pad. 

This is the amazing part...see how many of the balloons you can place on the eBosser platforms using Teresa Collins Damask Embossing Folder. 

After you have your hot air balloon cut and embossed, sand both sides using your sanding block.

Stack the balloons and sew down the center.

Cut your box out, using the eBosser and Teresa Collins Woodgrain Embossing Folder, emboss. Ink front and back of pieces and form box. 

Here is a closer look at the box once it was formed and decorated. 

I placed my ho tair balloon into the box and added candy after it was decorated. I hope you enjoyed my Hot Air Candy Box Party Favor Box and try to make some for yourself.

Wedding Banner Tags

By : Team Craftwell
Design Team: Jessica Kephart Week 15 Cycle 9

Jessica Kephart welcomes the week with a little wedding project! See it below!

Good Morning everyone! Jessica here from Homespun Elegance again for another fabulous project with our July Featured Sponsor, CORE'dinations Color Core Cardstock!

Today I am using the Color of 2014, Radiant Orchid for my project! July is the month for weddings and who doesn't love this color! I created a Mr. and Mrs Tag Banner for the Bride and Grooms Chairs and a Table Number/Centerpiece with a bit of rustic charm. 

For the tags I used Craftwells 8x10 embossing folder and the Purple from the Brights Cardstock pack. Once I embossed and Sanded I ran it through the eBosser again with a Tim Holtz Tag Die and tied them off with this beautiful sheer and ruffled black May Arts Ribbon. Add whatever wording you would like with stickers and voila! You have a tag banner! 

The centerpiece was just as simple! I used a Large Mason Jar and cut 2 Nesting Sizes of the Spellbinders Circle Doilies Dies. One in the Grey Vintage and the other out of a piece left over from the tags in the Radiant Orchid. Adhere the 2 together and adhere to the mason jar with the appropriate Table number using the same alpha stickers from the tags. 

When planning your own wedding, or even a family members, their are so many ways to save money! DIY decor is all the rage right now and it's more simple than ever with the eBosser!! 
Thanks so much for stopping in today!! Come back each day for a new project with the eBosser and CORE'dinations!! 

Supplies Used:

Craftwell eBosser
Craftwell 8x10 Embossing Folder
CORE'dinations ColorCore Cardstock "Vintage"

CORE'dinations ColorCore Cardstock "Brights"

Watercolor Embossed Party Banner

By : Team Craftwell
Watercolor Embossed Party Banner

We are back with a simple party banner created with Core'dinations Cardstock & the Teresa Collins Cut 'n' Boss by Jazmin Gibbons.

Hi there!

This banner was created for a Nautical Theme shower and it was fun to make!

Have you tried using watercolors? If not, you can totally create new effects by paining plain cardstock, letting it dry and running it through the Cut 'n' Boss!

For this banner and used watercolor paper, blue watercolor paints and simply swirled the colors onto cardstock to create the look of water stains. 

Using Core'dination Cardstock I cut out the blue backing for the banner, and cut out the detailed anchor circles above ^

I really love how clean you can cut Core'dinations paper! I glued all my papers together, die cut the letters, and glued to hang. For added sparkle, I die cut the gold anchors!

I hope you enjoyed my project!


Thanks Jazmin!

Stunning Embossed 'Thank You' Card

By : Team Craftwell
Design Team: Pam Bray Week 14 Cycle 9

Pam Bray knows good embossing. See how she embossed several pieces of Core'dinations Cardstock and turned them into a stunning 'Thank you' card!

I love making Thank You Cards...I feel we all need to remember to send thank you cards out more often, it is always nice to receive something pretty in the mail when you want to say thanks to someone. 

And the gorgeous ColorCore Nostalgia Cardstock makes it so easy to make multiples of any card especially when you are using Teresa Collins large embossing folders.

I cut my pieces from 3 different pieces of the shades of purple from the pad and did a border punch on the lightest of the paper...

 Layered them all at once onto the Damask Embossing Folder....

Running them through the eBosser at one time, how cool is that....

 And there you have it, all beautifully embossed, all at once....like I said super easy to make multiples of the thank you card.

 Layer the pieces on to your card base....

I added a pretty rose that I colored in using my Copic Markers to the center of my card, along with some stick pins, ribbon and sentiment to the front to finish my Rose Thank You Card with. 

Hugs Pammejo

Thank you Pam!

Impressive huh? What do you think of Pam being able to emboss the entire card pieces in one run through?

Be sure to leave Pam some love! She would love to hear your thoughts!
