Each Saturday, I hope to have a Stampin’ With Sami (SWS) workshop for you -in the form of a tutorial with step-by-step photos. It will either be a fancy technique (like today) or a cool new way to use a product. The purpose of me bringing your these workshops is to hopefully convince you to become one of my lovely customers :O)
You can use this same peek-a-boo pocket for any type of Sweet Center card, but for my sample today, we are making a flower card, which I showed you earlier this week :O)
- Stampin’ UP Sweet Centers stamp set
- Stampin’ UP Sweet Treat Cup
- Candy of your choice (used here: Skittles)
- Stampin’ UP 1 3/8inch Circle Punch
- Stampin’ UP Scallop Circle Punch
- Cardstock (used here: Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, and Whisper White)
- Ink (used here: Classic Old Olive for the leaves and Melon Mambo for the petals)
- Embellishments and/or patterned papers (SU 1/4inch Old Olive grosgrain ribbon used here)
- Sentiment stamp (Stampin’ UP Teeny Tiny Wishes used here)
- Stamp-a-ma-jig to place your sentiment
1. Make your card Front and punch your circle. My card front was made with Melon Mambo cardstock cut to 5.5X4.25 inches and a piece of non-SU cardstock cut to 5.25X4inches. I chose to use the 1 3/8 inch Circle punch because it is smaller so all the candy won’t fall out when I open my peek-a-boo pocket.
2. Peel the little backing off your Sweet Treat Cup & place the cup over your punched circle, so that the circle is close to the top of the Sweet Treat Cup.
Here is just a photo to show you the backing of the Sweet Treat Cup. These are easy to peel off because there is a cut through them so you just find the cut and peel!
4. Next, attach your 1/4 Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon for your “stem”. I just cut my ribbon to fit so it would only reach down to the pink border. I didn’t do any official measuring, I just held my ribbon up to my card and cut.
5. Stamp your petals and leaves. I stamped only one set of leaves in Old Olive Classic Ink, and 8 Petals in Melon Mambo Classic ink. I wanted to make sure I had enough petals, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to layer them or not.
6. Cut out the leaves and petals. Attach them to your card. Stamp on a sentiment using your Stamp-a-ma-jig. My sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
7. Flip your card over.
8. Using a rectangle shaped piece of cardstock, make a pocket. Attach this piece to your card like shown below, so that only half of the circle is showing, but only glue down the three sides NOT touching the circle.
9. Punch out another circle and a scallop circle. Cut a piece of cardstock that will fit inside your pocket. This piece is your tab. Attach your scallop circle just to the very top edge of your tab so that the bottom portion of your scallop circle is loose.
10. Fill your Sweet Treat Cup with candy!
