15 Minute Projects

Quick and easy projects using images from the Craft Room Library

Wedding Anniversary Gate Card

Yesterday was my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. Being married for 50 years is quite an accomplishment and I wanted to make them a special card to go with our gift. Our Fun Folds Cutting Collection has been very popular and I love to use the card bases when an extra special card is called for. In this case I used the Panel Gate Fun Fold file and welded the 50 to the top of the inside flap. I added some roses made with the Twirled Flowers files to the front and a monogram made from gold glitter cardstock, since the 50th anniversary is the golden anniversary.

Spring Party Banner

I love this cute spring banner. When I think of spring I think of pinks, purples, and yellows, and I think of flowers. I started this banner with the Be Mine Banner file from the Craft Room. I used only the banner card part and I deleted everything else. I elongated the banner card to the size I wanted, so my banner cards are 3.5" x 5.5". I then created an inline it about a quarter inch smaller to make a white layer. I used one of the flowers from the file Flower Bunch. That file has several to choose from, or you could use more than one, it's really up to you.

Strawberry Jam Jar Gift Tags

I remember when I was about 10, being in the kitchen with my great grandmother. We called her "Granna". I remember the smell of fresh strawberry jam and helping her to mash the berries. It’s a memory that has stayed with me forever, and so every year I make my house smell just like hers. Fresh strawberry jam is something my family has always loved, and for a few lucky people they get to live that memory with me as I give out the jam. This year I used my Inspiration to make my labels. I first cut three 3" circles for the tops out of a plaid pattern paper. Then I used the Deckled Edge Classic Ovals from the Spellbinders Cutting Collections.

Easter Party Spring Cupcake Wrappers

I've designed these cupcake wrappers in my head a million times. Every holiday or season I've thought about making little coordinating wrappers and cupcake picks, but they always end up on the bottom of the design pile and I make something else instead. This week they actually came to life. I've made four versions so you can make an assortment, or do multiples of the same kind. Of course they are even more appealing when a cupcake stacked with frosting rests in the center. If cupcakes aren't your thing, place cupcake wrappers in the center and fill with candy or healthy snacks instead. The easter basket is my favorite and I can't wait to make these for all of my nieces and nephews.

Gold Nugget Sucker Covers

No need to search for a rainbow. You've already struck it rich being members of the Craft Room with this sucker cover project you can create in a pinch. Make these golden nugget sucker covers for your friends and family and celebrate St. Patty's day in perfectly green fashion. Let them know how lucky they are you love them.

Butterfly Pops Party Favor

Today I have made a quick 15 minute project, a Butterfly Lollipop Holder using my Pazzles Inspiration. I love butterflies and when I saw this 3-D Butterfly in the Craft Room Library, I just knew I would be using it for one of my projects. I imported the file into my Pazzles software and deselected some of the layers, as I wanted to use a combination of different patterned papers. I duplicated the butterfly and set it to one side. Taking the first imported butterfly I deleted all the layers except the largest base layer.

Front Door Vinyl Signs

Driving through my neighborhood the other day I saw that my neighbor had added her last name to her front door with vinyl. I instantly wanted to be a copycat. What a cute idea! Sometimes it's the simple things we can do with our Inspiration that we overlook. Since I can't create all of your last names for you in fun fonts, I did the next best thing and made several generic front door signs ready to cut out in your color choice of vinyl. I don't know why I never thought of this before, but I think this might be my part of every gift I give this year. What a cute idea for newlyweds or a small gift for a teacher, or neighbor.

Make A Wish Birthday Card

Winter reminds me of snowflakes and mittens. With this in mind I got an idea to create a winter birthday card. I started with a 5" x 7" base card,  and then went ahead and created a scalloped border using the making scallops video. The video makes it so easy to create any size scalloped borders. I used the Mittens cutting file found in the Craft Room Library and created an outline for the mittens. I also created two basic circles and printed the Make A Wish sentiment.

Coffee Cup Circle Card

I wanted to create a special birthday card for a friend who loves coffee. I decided to create her card using the coffee theme. I used the Scallop Sunshine cutting file, Coffee Cup and the Let It Snow file, all of which can be found in the Craft Room Library. I enlarged the sunshine cutting file to 6 inches and mirrored and welded it to create a shaped card.

Office Folder Valentine Mailbox

I loved Valentine's Day as a kid. Waiting for candy and cards to fill my carefully decorated cereal box adorned with pink and red hearts was such fun! My favorite was waiting to play "Heads up Seven Up" during our classroom party. Those are truly treasured memories. Create this file folder Valentine and let coworkers fill it with Post-It note greetings. It's a perfect mailbox for the office. Don't forget to check and see if "You Got Mail"!

Tic Tac Toe Valentine

Tic tac toe game valentine. Put a personalized note inside with the Xs and Os and tuck the heart shaped tab closure to close the envelope.

Folded Heart Card

Pick a special person to be your Valentine and create this little belly band card to wrap your sentiments of love in.

Treat Cups

Heart Treat Cup

This fun little cup is very quick and easy to make. You just need to fold and glue, then add a special treat. I chose to use just a solid card stock and then use twine to put the tag on.

Easy Thank You Card: Layered ...

Today I am sharing a super quick and easy card featuring files from the Craft Room Library. I wanted to create a card that could possibly work for a masculine recipient. Here is what I came up with. My finished card size is 5" x 6.5". My base was from regular Bazzill Kraft cardstock. I started by cutting a white mat an 1/8” down from my base size. I then cut another mat from patterned paper an 1/8" smaller than that, using a small grid patterned paper. Next, I used the Chevron Paper Lace file from the library and sized it to 4.5" x 6". I cut it from regular blue cardstock. I then used the Downy Feather file and cut two of them from another piece of patterned paper.

Easy Thank You Card: Patterned ...

All this week members of the Pazzles Design Team will be sharing recipes for fast and easy Thank You cards. Angie starts it off today with a beautiful, elegant card. She pairs patterned paper with a simple sentiment tag to make a gorgeous card. It seems like I can never have enough damask patterned paper. I just love the elegance of it and love the variety of colors they come in. I decided to create some thank you cards using damask paper by Recollections. For my card I used a 9 ½" x 7" card base. I simply cut a piece of the patterned paper and adhered to my card base. I then stamped some flower images and cut around them. I chalked and added pearls for the centers and used liquid pearls. I then went ahead and used the Plane Tag cutting file which can be found in the Craft Room Library. For the tag I simply added the thank you sentiment and printed it. I finished my card by adding ribbon along the side.

Welcome 2014 Party Hat

Happy New Year to all my fellow Pazzler’s. It has been a challenging year for me, as I have been a Pazzles Design Team Member for the best part of the 2013. I have learnt so much about being part of a Design Team, but more importantly I have learnt so much more about my Pazzles Inspiration and capability of the software. It has been an enjoyable creative journey and I hope those of you that have received a new Pazzles Inspiration Creative Cutter from Santa, will share your creative journey with fellow Pazzler’s here in the Pazzles Craft Room.

Ornament Shaped Card

I recently added the NEW pen tool to my collection of Pazzles tools. I have got to say that I love the flexibility of using lots of different sized pens of all shapes and sizes. So, I thought I would have a try at creating my own word circle sentiment. I used a simple Christmas Ornament file to create the base of my shaped card which I cut out of red cardstock and layered with patterned paper. (See Making Shaped Cards video tutorial).

Christmas Votive Candle Holders

Candles are one of my favorite parts of the holidays. I love the smells, the glow, and the warmth they add to a room. Sometimes though, the plain glass containers can be, well, a little boring. And really, who wants to look at the label or the other side with the warnings? I know I don’t. In about 15 minutes you can decorate them. All I did was gather a few files from the Craft Room Library and size them to fit my candles. The candles I had were small candles about 2.5". Gather some vellum, a couple buttons, some pearls, and some adhesive, and you are ready to go.

Christmas Treat Bags

I work in a primary school and Christmas is such an exciting time of the year for the Reception children. The teaching staff have a difficult time thinking of economical Christmas gifts to give to all the children at the end of the school year. I thought these Santa and elf treat boxes would be quick to make and could easily be made in volume whilst still cost effective! I have used the Cereal Box file from the Craft Room Library which I resized. (See How to Resize Images video tutorial). I straightened and folded over the top flaps of the box to make it more rigid.

Fall Days Woodgrain Card

I came across some great cutting files in the Pazzles Library and was inspired to create a fall card. I needed something quick and cute, so I decided to use the print and cut technique. To create this card I used the Fall Days Title, Wood Grain Overlay 4x5, and the Banner Tag cutting files. I used Crystal Effects to give the wood grain more detail, as well as Stickles glitter on the Fall Days Title.

Vinyl Candle Holders

Vinyl Decorated Candle Holders

I like to browse my local Hardware store and find great bargains to use with my Pazzles Inspiration Creative Cutter. The other day I found these glass hurricane lamps including the candles, on sale! There were only two left, at a great discounted price, so I snapped them up. The lamps were lovely but rather plain, and I thought I could make them look more special with a touch of vinyl using my Pazzles.
