Bo Bunny Details

The contents of the Loaded Envelope I made a tag album using (6) Ranger Manilla tags 61/4 X 3 1/4 for the base, covered up using some of the left over papers from my previous project. Also, I used some of the stickers from the Bo Bunny sticker sheet, the cut outs from one of the sheets, chipboard & ephemera pack from the collection to embellish the tags. On the cover, I used the gold alpha puffy stickers as well that spells “HELLO”. I added some more ephemera layered onto the cover. This included a beautiful butterfly, I used some of the “Candy Dots” from the collection for the body of the butterfly. Also, added some photo mats using some American Crafts textured card stock from the Spring Pack.

Finished it off by adding some hole reinforcements from the left over colored card stock and a metal ring with some laces to dangle from it.

So Many Gorgeous Embellishments!

Next, the other embellishments created for this loaded envelope was (2) Paper Rosettes on some straws and added some chipboard flowers from the collection on the center of the rosettes. I created a pin wheel from the left over paper and added one of the beautiful brads from the Bo Bunny Garden collection for the center, I then wrapped some of the washi tape from the collection on a plastic coffee straw and adhered the pinwheel on it! I love how it turned out! It was my 1st time creating them, they were fun & easy to create!

I also created some mini envelopes and mini file folders using my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch board. I also created a small banner that I added onto a gold paper clip from Anna Griffin and some altered Guest Checks in which I added lace, from the collection I added tags w/ribbon and flower ephemera as well.

Tutorial Time

This is a expandable envelope itself which measures 9 X 6. The tutorial that I followed was easy to follow tutor from Michelle Randolph who is Shabby Chic Chick on Youtube

For the base envelope I used the same color of American Crafts card stock that was used on the tag album. I added some ruffle trim on the front pocket with ivory flat back trim then adding a piece of the chipboard sticker “Lovely” from the collection .

On the top opening, I added white cheese cloth, a tassle banner, Prima flowers and a frame brad from the Bo Bunny collection. The front top pocket holds the tag album and the two paper rosettes. On the back it has a slightly larger pocket than on front, I added some lace and a Prima flower on that. This pocket hold a piece of notepad ephemera from the collection and the altered paper clip. Lastly all of the embellishments included the variety of Washi tape from this same collection bundle! This collection bundle from Fotobella includes so much product including one of the Fotobella 12X12 Clear Storage Boxes for paper and projects so that is a great bonus as well!

Well crafty friends I hope that you have enjoyed this weeks project and post! I’ll be back next week with the last project using this beautiful collection! Stay safe , stay home and keep on crafting friends!!

Bo Bunny Celebrating Freedom Card Folio Design Team Project by Laurie

Hi everyone. Laurie here with another fun design team project using the Celebrating Freedom I Want It All bundle by Bo Bunny. This is a quick and easy project that you can put together in just a short time.

Patriotic Card Folio

Start With The Basics

First, I used a Bo Bunny chipboard piece for the folio cover. I used two pieces 4 3/4” x 6 1/4” for the cover and one piece 1 1/4” x 6 1/4” for the spine. Next, cut 2 pieces of cardstock 8 1/4” x 12” and glue together to form one long piece.

Next. center the spine chipboard over the seam and glue, making sure it is centered top to bottom, as well leaving 1-inch above and below. Glue the cover pieces (one on either side of the spine) leaving a 1/4-inch gap next to the spine. Then, trim off the ends of the cardstock leaving a 1-inch strip along the ends of the chipboard. Miter the corners and fold the cardstock over the chipboard and glue. Now, cut a piece of cardstock 6 inches long and wide enough to cover the spine and leave about 1 1/2-inches onto the cover.

Add the Pockets

Each of the pockets in the folio holds eight regular sized greeting cards. Start by cutting 2 pieces of Bo Bunny cardstock 7” x 4 3/8”. With the 7 inch side along the top of your score pad, score at 1/2”, 1 1/8”, 5 7/8”, and 6 1/2”. Turn the cardstock so the 4 3/8” side is along the top of the score pad and score at 1/4”, 3 1/4, and 3 7/8”.

Folio Pocket

Trim off the top 2 narrowed scored section along each side and miter the edges of the 1/4” scored section. Burnish the score line and glue this small flap down to the inside of the pocket as extra protection for the pocket edge. Trim off the outer 3 sections of the lower corners as shown, leaving one section on each side to use as a joining piece. Burnish all the score marks and miter the corners.

Make the Bo Bunny Patterned Paper POP!

I added the white mats to show the different scored sections but also because it makes the patterned Bo Bunny Celebrating Freedom paper stand out better when it is added to the pocket sections.

Matted Pocket

I found it easiest to mat the pockets before adding them to the folio.

First, fold along the inner score marks to form the pocket. The outer 1/2-inch sections will be used to attach the pocket. Fold the sections in so they are straight and add a dab of glue to join the small sections on the sides to the inside of the bottom flap. This will form a box. I glued the corners of the 1/2-inch flaps to make it easier to attach to the cover.

Assembled Pocket

Next, glue the pockets to each of the inside covers even with the bottom and outside edges. Cut a mat 4 5/8” x 5 3/4”. And, add a piece of patterned paper 4 3/8” x 5” (it will be in the pocket) and glue the mat down inside the pocket and about 1/8-inch down from the top of the cover.

Left Inside Cover

I added a piece of the Bo Bunny Celebrating Freedom sticker border across the center of each pocket. Next I used a mat 1 1/8” x 6 1/8” of white with patterned paper added to the spine section. Then, I repeated everything for the Right Inside Cover. Then, I added 8 cards that I made using the fabulous cut aparts included in the Bo Bunny paper collection.

Finished Folio with Cards

The Bo Bunny Finishing Touch

To decorate the front of the folio, I used a piece from the ephemera pack, layered onto white and navy cardstock. I added 4 stars from the sticker collection to each corner. Next, I used the striped and word papers with a strip of washi tape to join them. Also, I used some ribbon from my stash to make a tie to close the folio. Along the spine, I added dimensional stars that are also included in the IWIA bundle.

The Cover

Last, But Not Least

I kept the cards simple, just using cut aparts, stickers, some of the ephemera pieces and a little bit of washi tape.

What I love most about this collection is that it works for more than just the 4th of July. Memorial Day is coming up and what a fabulous way to honor our active and retired military. I have friends and relatives who are or have served in the military and plan to send them a card to let them know that I truly appreciate their service.

Hopefully this project inspires you to do the same.

Bo Bunny Garden Grove Mini Album

From the moment I seen this beautiful collection, I knew that I would be creating a mini album for a friend! Bo Bunny Garden Grove is a beautiful collection , the colors are so soft, I absolutely love it!

Details of the Album

For this album I used the square 6.5 X 6.5 chipboard album from Frank Garcia’s Memory Hardware Collection. Along the edges of the album, I used Nuvo Mousse by Tonic Studios Toasted Almond. Applying it, using a make up sponge and with a little water on my mixed media mat. I, then picked out my papers and cut them to size. Usually, I create the cover last on my albums. Next, I picked out the trim I was gonna use for my closure. I usually don’t put on these albums since you can’t do too much dimensional embellishing on these albums, but I did it mainly for appearance.

I created side pockets and regular pockets on this album and using a decorative punch on them as well. Then, I added some thin dainty laces on the pockets and some of the ephemera from the collection. Next, I used foam dots on the ephemera because I love the little bit of dimension that it creates. Then, inside of the pockets I cut up one of the sheets that had some cut outs, which is perfect for journaling. For the photo mats, I used some ivory card stock from my stash, and used the camera stamp from Maggie Holmes.

Finishing Touches with Bo Bunny Products

For the cover, I did some layering of papers, using thin pieces of card board in between the layers since I was out of foam tape and didn’t want to use too many of the foam dots . I’ve used card board before on my mini albums. I took some chipboard pieces from the Bo Bunny collection on the cover and used some Prima Marketing flowers and a wooden button as well. Finishing it off by adding some splatters, using Pearl Agua Pigment Inks from Brutus Monroe, giving it a more shabby chic look.
