15 Minute Projects

Quick and easy projects using images from the Craft Room Library


Shamrock Bag

If St. Patrick’s Day pinching really isn’t your thing perhaps making this little Shamrock bag filled with chocolate gold coins will leave a bit O’ luck for coworkers and friends.


Valentine with Subtract Weld

Wow! The actual DAY, Valentine's Day, really snuck up on me! I have been making valentine themed projects for Pazzles for a month now but totally missed the fact that I needed to get things done for my Grandkids for today. As I was working on redoing the video tutorial for Subtract Weld, it occurred to me that it was the perfect technique to use to create a quick and easy table setting for Valentine's day.


I’m Lovin’ You Fry Box

It must be "Time 4 Luv"! This adorable band can easily wrap around your favorite candies. It isn't just a band either, remove the band and put it around your wrist so you can always know what time it is...well...sort of!

Love Bug

Be My Love Bug Card

This easy and cute little lady bug uses the pen tool to write a fun hidden message "Be My Love Bug". You can make 10 of these little lady bugs out of just 3 sheets of paper too!


Kiss and Rolo Candy Pencil

These adorable pencils are actually a cleverly disguised Rolo candy with a Hershey's Kiss tip! These are very very easy to make and so cute! Great idea for teachers!


Alligator Valentine's Day Card

Alligator Valentine

This alligator was easy to make and his heart scales add just the right amount of detail. Enjoy him as a simple card, or to hang inside a book as a bookmark for kids or teachers.



Heart Top Box

This super easy treat box has a heart shaped window and top. A great last minute box to make.


Ruffles and Pleats Cards

I love ruffles and pleats. They can soften a project that is too stark and add class to something that is too simple. Usually, I use fabric ruffled ribbons to add to my projects. But pretty as the ruffled and pleated fabric trims are, they can be a costly addition to my design. Recently I decided to try my hand at making my own ruffled and pleated ribbon out of paper.


Party Crackers

New year's eve comes so closely on the tails of Christmas that in the aftermath of Dec. 25th I have a hard time preparing anything much for it. This year however I (and now you too) am prepared! I know you are probably still doing last minute Christmas shopping, baking, wrapping, cleaning, traveling, planning.....So your mind is probably not looking towards 2012, but it is just around the corner! Don't fret though, this whole spread is amazingly simple to make and looks so cute! In fact I only used 4 sheets of black paper and 4 sheets of double sided patterned paper to do EVERYTHING!



Fortune Cookies

New Year’s Eve Party

Paper Bows

Wrapping a gift in beautiful paper and bows is half the fun of gift giving. Every year I pick just the right wrapping paper to fit my theme. Well, at least that is the theory. I like to have a different wrapping paper for each of the grandkids but now that there are 11 of them it is impossible. Now I have a different paper for each family, that way it is less confusing when it comes to passing the gifts out on Christmas Day.

Piece of Pie Box

I love baking goodies to give as gifts at the holidays. I usually make cookies, candies, jar mixes and jams as they are easy to wrap in fun little packages. Recently, my mom who is widowed, remarked that she loves homemade pie but cannot possibly eat an entire pie by herself. She was thrilled at our Thanksgiving dinner that she would be able to take a piece of pie home with her. I decided to make a box that could be used to gift a person with their own personal piece of pie. I also added a slide out tray lined with freezer paper.


Pyramid Box

A simple and elegant box that is exceptionally easy to make and large enough to hold mini candies. Great for favors at a wedding, shower, or party!



Scallop Christmas Tree

I am not a baker, but when we decided to make gift bags and boxes this year for the holidays I quickly went home to retrieve some cookbooks from my shelf. I was inspired to create some scrumptious cookies and give away to my friendly neighbors as gifts this Christmas. I thought this box would be a fun way to distribute my holiday baked goods. I chose a fun paper that was nontraditional for Christmas, pink!


Fold Over Box

Here we are already on day 4 of the 12 boxes of Christmas! If you haven't already make sure to check out days 1-3 of our boxes; you really don't want to miss them! December seems to go by so quickly and no matter how much planning and preparing we do, there always seems to be a gift or two that you really need in a hurry! That's why this box is so perfect, it is a very simple box and so fast! It literally takes one sheet of paper and some ribbon. It would be great to hold a pair of socks, a handkerchief, gloves or anything that just needs a quick wrap.


Make a Simple Luminary

Luminaries have been a common Halloween and Christmas decoration for decades. It isn't hard to understand why. They are easy to make and can create an eerie glow for Halloween or a warm holiday welcome for Christmas. Traditionally they were intended to line the sidewalk as a greeting leading up to the front door. Usually they were made from plain paper bags filled with sand to weigh them down and a candle provided the light. While the luminaries in today's lesson are for the indoors only, they make an easy, spooky greeting for the Halloween season.



Pop Up Borders

Sometimes, when I am focused on scrapbook pages, I forget about design elements such as pop ups and windows with flaps. I tend to think that when a page is slipped inside of a sheet protector all of the fun movement is trapped inside. I realize that that is not always true. I have resolved to cast aside my tunnel vision and see what ways I can use these dimensional elements in my projects.


Twirled Flowers

Create these six dimensional flowers simply be twirling the paper around a pencil and then curling the petals down. So simple and yet so beautiful you will want to make a whole bouquet!


Covered Buttons

I am always looking for new ways to use my Inspiration. Since I used to sew a lot, I have had covered buttons on my list of ideas for a while. Recently, there have been covered buttons showing up in a lot of product lines. They come already covered and cost quite a bit of money. Naturally I want to be able to make covered buttons in the size I want and have the exact color and print I want- when I want it.
