One Last Mini Post

One last mini project post and then I’ll move on to the One Set Wonder: Kinda Eclectic class I held on September 11, 2014! We made a cute little pizza box the hold a set of 4 3″x3″ cards.


I got the idea from a European Demo who’s YouTube channel I subscribe to. I had to cut the measurements down on the back to fit our cards, but it turned out really well.

You will want to cut your cardstock to 9 1/2″ x 7 1/4″ and then score along the 9 1/2″ side at 1″, 4 1/4″, 5 1/4″, and 8 1/4″. Next score along the 7 1/4″ side at 1″, 2″, 5 1/4″, and 6 1/4″. Once you’ve cut and scored your paper I recommend checking out this YouTube video in order to assemble! The box in the video is 4″ x 4″, DO NOT worry the basic assembly is the same.

At the end you will have a very cute finished box that will fit several 3″ x 3″ greeting cards!

More Mini

At the mini workshop in August we made the cutest Coffee Cup treat holders with little carrier. I ordered some 4 oz. coffee cups with lids from an online restaurant supply store and we were off!


In order to make the base of the box you will need to cut your paper to 6 1/2″x 7″ and score at 1″ all the way around your paper and then again at 2″ on the 7″ sides. Then you will cut 2″ in along the score line on the 6 1/2″ sides creating 4 2″ tabs to be tucked in to create the box. I used a piece of 8″ x 1″ cardstock for the handle which I attached with a glue dot and a staple on each side.

For the cups I simply took on cup apart to make a template to trace on my DSP that I covered the cups with. This was very easy and the only way I could get the correct measurements because of the arc in the cup. We filled our cups with Lindt truffles that were on sale at our local store…yummy!

 If you would like some of these mini 4 oz. coffee cups please contact me. I have a cute idea for them around Christmas, but after that I’m not sure when I would use the quantity I have on hand!

Brilliant Mini Notebook


I gave my class two color options for the mini notebooks we made in class on August 28. The first your saw on Friday and this is the second. Most of the ladies chose this color combo and stamp set up, but one chose the black and white with pool party combo.

For this project I used the All Abloom DSP stack. I love the new DSP stacks you get 48 sheets of DSP in nearly card size so I never feel like I’m wasting any paper even if I have scraps. I used Island Indigo and Smoky Slate with the Be The Star stamp set and Star dies.

Four Feathers

I didn’t hold classes during the month of August until the 28th which is when the Holiday Catalog came out. I did this mostly so I could recovers from a whirlwind summer. My customers and I brainstormed what type of classes I should offer. We decided it would be fun to do a mini workshop where we made all of our projects in miniature.


Our first project was a mini composition book. We covered the books with Back in Black DSP and Pool Party Cardstock. Then we stamped the feathers on Pool Party, Silver, and Vellum Cardstock. I used the new Four Feathers stamp set and matching die. I embossed the two feathers on the vellum cardstock with white and pool party EP. I used stazon ink in black on the silver cardstock.
