June Shoebox Cards

Welcome Summer!!

We were a small group on Tuesday... but we had a great time!!

Here are our amazing creations!!

My daughter is due to have a baby in the next couple of weeks, so this card is in honor of them.  The card is a tall card and scored at 5.5 and then put the fold on the two inch mark of the cutter and cut.  Also make another two in strip for the bottom.  Decorate, then lay the bottom piece at the bottom of the card and line up the sides with the "giraffe" piece.  Super fun and cute!!

Julie's patriotic card was super fun!  The silver fireworks is dryer tape!  How clever.  
Stars and stripes are perfect for this fun card.  We started off with a normal sized card 8.5x5.5 and score at 4.25 then, cut one inch off the top.  Fold one side of the card in half and the opposite side of strip.  Decorate and adhere the one inch strip and glue only in the first half and the last half.

Here is the side view.  (oops it was pigment ink and it got smudged).  The section without the decorative paper is left blank intentionally for a place to sign the card.  

Super fun card and love the the twist!!

Melani's card was super fun and had lots of folding.  The box is tied with a yellow floss and is a great match to the yellow border and sun burst.  There is a message inside and also something small can be put inside too.  The link to the directions will come.  

What a fun and surprising card!  Definitely having a bone folder is a good idea for this project!!

***Because the first Tuesday falls on the fourth of July, Shoe Box Cards will meet Tuesday July 11. So join us in a nice cool basement for a delightful even of card making, chatter and good music too!!
