15 Minute Projects

Quick and easy projects using images from the Craft Room Library


Patchwork Flowers

Pocket of Patchwork Posies

Back in the days of my grandmother's youth, patchwork quilts were very common. Women saved scraps of fabric to create beautiful pieced designs. It was a very resourceful way to make something pretty out of what would otherwise be waste. Today is Earth Day and I thought it would be fun to do our own patchwork project, out of scraps, to celebrate. Most of us have way more paper scraps than we do fabric scraps, so let's have some fun and put them to use.


Earth Day Custom Tee Shirt

Earth Day is Friday and there are many ways you can celebrate this day. I have chosen a custom tee shirt project using the Pazzles Iron on Vinyl. Using only one Craft Room file, Think Green, I ungrouped everything so I could weld the trunk of the tree with the leafy part. This means it will cut out as one piece, and you get a better idea for how it looks as a silhouette. The text is already welded. Click on Wire Frame to double check if in doubt with any file. Next, I added the hashtag #earthday in Blackjack font and also welded that together so it cut in one piece.


Hi Friend Card

Hi Floral Friend Card

Hi, Hi, Hi dear crafty friends. Melinda here with you today. Have you ever wanted to send a special someone a note just to say hi? Well here’s a card I created that would fit that bill. I started by using the hi card file set in the Craft Room. I used the DCWV Bouquet de Fleur Stack for all the patterned papers. I cut my flowers out in white cardstock.

Spring Shaped Cards

Spring Shaped Card Set

One of the funnest things you can make with your Pazzles Inspiration is shaped cards. In fact, they would be pretty hard to make without your Inspiration. Today I've created a set of spring shaped cards that you can make, and have on hand for your next event. Based on past experience I can tell you that giving a shaped card you've made to a non paper crafter will totally blow their mind!


Happy Birthday Balloon

Happy Birthday Card

When it came time to create a card for my oldest granddaughter, D'aijha, who will be turning 14 years old next week I knew I had to do something in purple and pink with just a little bling. If something is purple, pink, or sparkles, then she loves it. With the freedom my Pazzles gives me, I was able to really customize this card to her personality.



Brighten Your Day Clover Card

Brighten Your Day Clover Card

Hello Craft Room friends! So glad to be here with you. Today I am sharing a super quick and easy card I created with the Flourished Clover Shaped Card cut file. The clover was cut in regular white cardstock. I didn't have a cardstock color that matched my color scheme, so I used my Pear Ink and sponged some ink onto my die cut.


Pi Day Layout Template

Pi Day Template

This month's template is in honor of Pi Day. I realize it is not the actual Pi sign, but I thought it would be fun to do a play on words and make a Pie Shaped Template. This template could be used for a game night, cooking, or any other fun and creative thing you would like. Use the pie pieces to put photos on or add creative journaling. The sky is the limit


Celtic Knot St. Patrick's Day Card

Blessed Friend Card

Hello Craft Room friends, Melinda here with you. Today I am sharing a pretty card I created with a St. Patrick's day theme. I decided to use the Celtic knot background card cut file set and created this rendition. The patterned paper I used was from the All Seasons recollections paper stack. I cut the card base out of some vanilla cream cardstock. I then cut the Celtic knot background layer and the flowers from the same cardstock. I inked the edges of the flower petals with some Canary pigment ink from the Whimsy Ink Pad set from Close To My Heart. I then used my McGill flower sculpting tool to give the petals some form. I layered four layers of flowers and staggered them on top of each other. This gave me more petals to work with. For the centers of the flowers I added some bling gems assortment.



Pattern: Classic Treat Bags

While cards are a nice gesture to express your sentiments, sometimes you want to give just a little bit more. Perhaps it is a specially made cookie or a few premier type chocolates. On those occasions a card is not quite the right presentation. What you need is a creative way to disguise that treat. A custom made treat bag is the perfect solution. This month's project pattern is a treat bag with six interchangeable flaps. The flap elements are in a classic style and will work for any occasion depending on the paper you choose. The treat bag will fit the small portion size zipper bags found at Walmart or any clear bag that is 3.5" wide.

Valentine-themed glasses that fold flat and make a perfect "candy-less" valentine treat or can be tied to a bag of treats.



Fish Bowl Valentines

I always loved Valentine's Day as a child. I could hardly wait to make my valentine box and then get "all that mail." The only problem I had was for those darn boys who would tease me because I had the 'Be Mine' or 'Be my Valentine' sayings, even if the boy was just a friend. So I realized we needed something that can be more neutral and help our kids be more comfortable in giving cards to everyone.


Valentine Cuties Print and Cut Collection

Valentine Cuties Print and Cut ...

I love to look through vintage valentines because of the clever, punny sentiments. Although the Valentine Cuties Collection does not have a vintage feel, I did try and incorporate some of the same clever puns into the tags. Some of the tags are pretty specific, like the cheese stick, but some can be used in a variety of ways, like the banana. I hope you'll have fun thinking up clever treats to tie these tags onto.


Valentine Tic Tac™ Game

Valentine's Day is a big deal for most kids in elementary school. Every year parents need to come up with a Valentine idea for each child and make enough for all of their classmates. That can be a daunting task especially if you have several children. I can't help with the quantity you need to make but I did create a card that will please all the kids no matter what grade they are in.



Doily Heart Card

Hello lovely Pazzlers! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and managed to immerse yourself in some craft amongst the madness! Today I’m sharing with you a project for the next holiday which is just around the corner – Valentine’s Day. That being said, this project can also be used for an anniversary, or any other occasion where you want to show how much you love someone. This project is a quick one to be able to pull together when you need something fast, but that looks very elegant. It also doesn’t require many supplies.

Bookmarks

DIY Bookmarks for your Bookworm

Do you have someone in your life who loves to read? Is that bookworm you? Bookmarks can be so much more than just a page marker. They can hold a special message, or a favourite quote, and they can be pretty to look at. Here, I’ve created three different bookmarks that you can either make for yourself, as gifts, or use them as favours for parties or class gifts.


Folded Dimensional Paper Snowflake

Folded Dimensional Paper Snowflakes

My daughter came home from an activity a few weeks ago with a super cool folded dimensional snowflake. It was unlike anything I'd seen before. She created it by folding and cutting several pieces of paper and then gluing them together in cool patterns. I knew immediately these would be a hit with grownup kids too, so I created a few for you to cut out.



Planner Pages Cutting Collection

Planner Pages Cutting Collection: WPC, ...

Personal planners are all the rage right now. Many scrapbook paper companies have come out with their own version of a planner and I suspect we'll see many more released next month at CHA (Craft & Hobby Show). Scrappers are using them not only to keep track of their schedule, but also to document bits and pieces of their lives. Have you jumped on the planner bandwagon yet?

I created this fun and simple box which you can find in the Craft Room. It features a flap top so you can open and close it very easily.
