Ice Princess Party Favors

Snowflake Winter Party Favors

“Let it Go, Let It Go……” is sung in our household, and my car repeatedly! This movie is so loved in our household, that my almost 5 year old son has chosen it as his theme for his upcoming birthday party at the end of August. The Pazzles Party CD 51 holds many amazing files that can be tweaked as required for your chosen theme. I adore making party décor and favours, and these files give you an excellent base to work from. Most of the pieces of my party are taken from other themed parties on the Party CD and remade with my winter party theme. Circus Pinwheels to Ice Pinwheels These make the quickest little additions to a sweet table or to give as party favours. I plan to make more of these in coordinating colours, and adding a touch of glitter to the corners adds more festivity! They don’t have to spin either, fastening them to a paddle pop stick and used as a static display is quite okay.


Baby Shower Frog Gift Box

Baby Frog Gift Card Box

Gift cards are great for baby showers, as this allows for the mom to be to buy exactly what she needs. I thought it would be a great idea to dress up a packaging box I had saved. I used the Baby Frog, Ribbon Slot Borders and Scallop Mat files which can all be found in the Craft Room Library. Tuck cash or gift card inside this gift card box and you are ready to go.


Baby Bootie Shower Favors

I used the cute little baby bootie file from the CD51: Party CD to create the adorable bootie favors. I used some Die Cuts With A View papers from the baby girl stack. I simply added some lace and pearls around the bottom and a pretty flower with gem for the "snap". I filled it with some candy kisses and they were ready to go! For my hot air balloon favor, I used the free Berry Basket file for the base. I hot glued two bamboo skewers and then inserted them into the balloon. The balloon is from the On the Move Hot Air Balloon file.

Beach Picnic Party Favor

Here in Australia we are heading into winter, but in the northern hemisphere, summer is on your doorstep. If you’re throwing a beach party to celebrate the beginning of summer, you might like to create favour bags similar to the one I created using my Inspiration Cutter and fill the bag with all kinds of summery treats. Party favours are fun to make and mixing and matching different files in the same theme makes for a fun project. I used the Lunch Sack Gift Bag Vintage Handle file for the great looking handles on my paper bag, resized to fit on the bag. The next file was the Swag Banners with Thank You text printed onto the top layer using the text fit to path function (refer to Fit Text to Path Video). I used a darker blue for the bottom file and then a lighter colour for the top. Line up all elements of the Happy Sun file and then create an outline to cut out the very outer layer so the image can be printed onto it using the Print and Cut method.


Suitcase Box Postcard Holder

So, the summer holidays are almost upon us and as a family we are thinking about going away for a few days to the beach. With the advance in phone technology the art of sending postcards to friends and family seems to be diminishing. However, I think it is much more fun and personal to send a written postcard to loved ones highlighting the family summer activities. For my project I have used the Suitcase Box found in the Craft Room Library. I have used papers by Graphic 45 from By the Sea paper collection which includes a double-sided sheet of Seaside themed postcards. I decided to enlarge my suitcase so that I could place my postcards and Kraft card envelopes inside. As a Craft Room member I found the video tutorial on How to Resize a Box extremely helpful for this project.

Teacher Appreciation Apple Treat Box

Here, in the UK we have several more weeks till the end of the school year! I thought I would make a cute gift box for my son’s teacher in appreciation for schooling my son this year. I work in a school myself and know that the teachers love to receive unique, homemade gifts. I have used the Tennis Box from the Sport Gift Boxes Collection. In addition, I selected the apple from the Apple Tree cutting file also found in the Craft Room Library. I resized the apple to sit on top of the circular tab and cut it out of Kraft card which I covered with red gingham paper. I added a twirled flower between the leaves of the apple using red cardstock and inked up the edges of the leaves and apple. I then added some numbers using fonts in my Pazzles software and cut them out of black cardstock.


Congrats Grad Card

Hands Down Best Dad Bag

June is quite busy for some of you. Are there grads and dads that you want to honor? Pazzles can help. The Craft Room makes celebrations quick. I found several great files that help me celebrate these to special occasions. First I made some simple graduation cards. I even used the Print & Cut method to make my sentiments. For the cards I used the 2014 Photo Booth Hat and the Grad Girl files Next I made a small gift bag for a boy graduating.

Candy Bowties

Candy Filled Bow Ties for ...

My dad is a hard man to give gifts to. He really doesn't have any hobbies besides reading and attending all of his grand kids sporting events. Nothing themed ever fits the bill for his gifts. He doesn't hunt, fish, golf or do any of the other manly things fathers do. As a result he usually gets a new book or two and a treat for every major holiday. I've learned you really can't go wrong with candy. And although my dad doesn't wear bow ties either, this year he's getting his candy with a bit of style. There are two versions of today's project. The first is a simple tag to attach to a bag of candy. I've included tags sized for both the larger bags of candy and the individual sized bags.


Sun And Cloud Gift Box

It’s Sunshine Week at Pazzles! All this week we are sharing sunshine inspired projects to warm your hearts and inspire some bright, cheerful crafting! Goodbye winter! Hello Sunshine! I am a sunshine kinda girl and I am glad winter is behind us in the US. I decided to celebrate the warmer weather with a sunny project. I made this sunshine box using the Sunshine Title, the Scallop Sunshine file, and the St. Patrick’s Day Pot of Gold Treat Box. I used vinyl for the lettering because I love the fact that you transfer all the letters at once and they are already lined up. No glue, no fuss. I followed the directions that are provided with the St. Patrick’s Day Pot of Gold Treat Box to assemble the box, but I moved the cloud to the left side and instead of using the pot of gold, I substituted the Scallop Sunshine file.


Upcycled Truffle Gift Box

More recently, I have found that I am looking at packaging and thinking how I can use it for my projects. At Christmas we received a lovely box of truffles and I immediately thought how I could decorate it, when all the chocolates had been eaten. I measured the dimensions of the box and laid my patterned paper onto my cutting mat. I cut the pieces for the wrap around the box, the inside and top of the lid. It was so easy using the Transformation Menu in my Pazzles software to create the exact measurements for my paper piecing. The video tutorial in the Pazzles Craft Room called How to Resize Images helps you understand the capabilities of the Transformation Menu.



Hot Tamale Treat Topper

I was so inspired by Amanda’s So Lucky To Have You Treat Topper that I turned it into a treat for my hubby. With just a few changes and his favorite candy it came out so cute. First, I changed the Lucky wording to Hot Tamale and then changed the Pen Tool writing to read "You are one". I added a couple of hearts and hot tamale candies, then some stickles to fancy it up a bit. He’s going to love it!



Easter Egg Carton Carrier

March Challenge Reminder

Have you been inspired by our March Challenge yet? As a reminder the challenge this month is to take some form of inspiration from this home décor picture and make a project. We want you to find something within the picture that inspires you and make a project. You might love the colors, or the pattern on the rug, or you might make a card with a chair or couch on it. There is no right or wrong answer on this. Just have fun! Details on the challenge can be found here. Are you ready to see what a few of the Design Team Members came up with? Joanna Wright


DIY Dimensional Flowers

I love springtime, as there are such pretty flowers to admire bursting into bloom. Also, there are some beautiful cutting files in the Craft Room Library that can be teamed up with pretty floral papers to create a lovely 3D project. Today I have used the Banner Box cutting file in the Pazzles Library for my gift box. I have cut this out using pretty floral paper. Remember you can resize the box smaller or larger using your Pazzles software. I also resized the banner overlay to make a smaller banner in coordinating paper as a background for my flower. I was browsing through the Tips and Tricks section in the Craft Room and came across a blog post, Dimensional Flowers. I watched the accompanying video tutorial on how to create 3D Flowers which includes several cutting files for you to use.


Pocket Card Gift Box

I was excited to see the new addition of the Pocket Box Card to the Craft Room Library.  The little box is just the right size for fun gifts.  This project was enlarged to 11 1/2" width. After covering the box card in pink papers, I added some of the Handful of Hearts file sized at 4 3/4”.  I love to add sewing to projects and so my absolute favorite tool is the Piercing Tool as it makes pierced holes that are separated by whatever spacing you want.  Hand stitching has never been so accurate and easy!
