Rawr-Some Cup Card

Celebrate any little guy's birthday with this Rawr-some Card... and it's not just any card, it's a 3D diorama-style Cup Card!  

To get started  I've used a paper to-go coffee cup with plastic lid.  I found  this package of cups at my local dollar store for just a couple of dollars.
I used a craft knife to separate the bottom of the cup, as well as cutting the top portion of the cup in half as shown above.  The cup comes with the kraft wrapper, which I used as well.

The lid was covered with a disk of patterned paper and then trimmed with chunky twine.  The Jelly Clip fits perfectly inside of the little spout!
The bottom of the cup was covered with green gingham paper and then a strip of the same paper was die-cut with a grass die.  If you don't have a grass die: cut a strip of paper that measures 5"W X 1.5"H and cut away small strips to resemble blades of grass. The grass strip is then wrapped around the bottom of the cup and curled a bit at the ends.

Vacay Mini Album & Journal

It's officially Summer and everyone's social media is loaded with beach pictures and vacation fun. For the occasion, I've designed a sweet mini album to capture those "VACAY" memories!
To begin, I started with a sheet of 12X12 cardstock that I scored at: 0.5", 5", 6" and 11.5". Then I turned the paper and scored at: 3.5" and 8.5".  After folding along all of the scored marks, I mitered  the edges of the 0.5" and 11.5" and made them into the end flaps.  Using a full sheet of cardstock and doubling it, makes it nice and sturdy.  You could even add a lightweight chipboard between the scored areas of the front and back covers.  Before adding the flip up pages, I cut a swatch of patterned paper that measured 4.75" square and then attached them to the inside of the cover page.  After that, I cut a 4.5" square (Bubblegum cardstock) and adhered to the center of the patterned paper square. (repeat for the opposite side).
