Hinged Display Tray Trinket Box

This is a hinged display tray that I set flat and put feet on it so that it’s like a trinket box.

I embellished the top and edge of the box and the inside of the box.  I added a ribbon to the bottom and top to act as a stop so the lid wouldn’t flop all the way open.  Then I added cardstock with photo mats to the bottoms of each cubby, top and bottom.

In the top cubbies of the box, I made little mini albums that can be removed.  Before I put the cardstock in the top cubbies I adhered neo magnets then when I made the little albums I used brads that would be attracted to the magnets.  So the mini albums are magnetically held in place.

Quick Handmade Christmas Gift – Jumbo Paperclip Bookmark

Here is another idea for Christmas gifts for teachers and co-workers who are readers (check out Friday’s Christmas gift post here).

Photo of Jumbo Paperclip Bookmark

This is one of those JUMBO paper clips.  I used a 2″ scalloped circle to punch out 2 circles.  You can use any shape that is big enough to cover the top of the paper clip.

The pink circle is 1.5″.  I only used one of those.  Stamp and embellish ’til your heats content.  Then place the single hoop end of the paper clip in the middle of the bottom circle.  Put a piece of double sided foam tape above and below the paper clip on the circle, right snug up against the paper clip, so it can’t wiggle.

Then put the other circle on top.  You should have a paper clip sandwich now.  If you wish add a little ribbon to your bookmark.

Frugal Friday – Altered Note Book

It’s time to start thinking about Christmas gifts, if you’re making them.  Here is something for teachers or co-workers.  This can be done with scraps of paper.

I just took a piece of cardstock (larger than my note book by about 1/2″ in all directions), dampened it and… now please don’t have a heart attack, wad your cardstock up in a ball.  Keep breathing, everything will be okay.  Unwad (is that a word?) your cardstock, hand smooth it, being gentle.

At this point you can take an ink pad and rub it gently over the surface of your cardstock, inking the wrinkles of you cardstock.  You can use a coordinating or contrasting color, your choice.  Next, with a medium heat iron smooth the cardstock as flat as you can. This gives your cardstock a faux suede or crushed velvet look.

Now you’re ready to adhere it to your notebook, trim the excess to the size of the notebook.  Embellish as desired.
