New Product Saturday -Tutorial

 Hello and Welcome to New Product Saturday..
I’m so excited that I get to bring to you the
New Products
from Digital Delights by Louby Lou!
Today I’m featuring the NEW
St. Patrick’s Day Digital Papers,
the Square Box Cut files,
and the Gift Bag Cut File.

We’ll start of with this adorable little gift bag. 
Print your Digital Paper with your favorite computer program..
  For the gift bags I used the regular copy paper
(Hint: make sure you set your printer to borderless)

Cut the bag out using the Gift Bag using the Cut File or you can do it by hand with the PDF file.  These files are now in Digital Delights store you can get it here.

When cutting your bag with the cut file, note which way you want your paper so the design is at the top of the bag.
(Hint: When cutting copy paper, make sure you use an old mat.. The new mat sticks and will tear the paper)

Score the fold lines and fold. 

Put your Double sided tape on the inside of the large flap on inside of bag right along the edge.  Do the same on the bottom flap..  You can put a small piece of tape on the printed side of the small side flaps at the bottom of the bag.
Assemble your bag..

    Carefully pinch the top together folding in the side of the bag.  
To get this effect.

Now take your topper and side over the top of the bag and center.  Punch two hole with a hole punch and tie your ribbon…
For this topper I just cut a 31/2 X 31/2 square

Decorate the front with your favorite
Digital Delights Digi… I used the
Circular St. Patrick’s Sentiment and Shamrock Sam.  He was a “Friday Freebie” but now he’s available in the store here.

Our next project is the “Gift Boxes”..

These are so simple with the cut files, which are available here.  Using your favorite program and your cutting machine.  Pick the size you want. 
They come in the sizes of  6X6, 5X5, and 4X4. 
Or you can resize to whatever size you would like.

 I again used Digital Delights  St. Patrick’s Digital Paper.  I printed it out onto Card Stock.  On the 6X6 box I used DCWV “Nana’s Kids” Card Stock because my printer won’t print the larger size paper.You will need at least a 10X10 sheet for this one.
(Hint: Make sure your printer settings are set to borderless)

After cutting the box, score 1 inch from the edge on each side of the box.
(This is the same for each size box.)  Fold your side in..

Put a piece of double sided tape on the printed side of each flap.
Then on the non-printed of the opposite side of the slit. 

 Fold the flaps in and secure to sides to form box. 
Now it’s time to decorate… 

In the 5X5 box I made these cute little candy wrappers and wrapped them around Hershey nuggets. 
 (You know you want to find gold in the Leprachun's pot!)

In the 4X4 box I giving a gift card.. This little guy is Leprechaun Larry.  He is also available in the store here. You can also use these wonderful boxes for your dimensional cards… The uses are endless.
(Hint:  if you find the boxes aren’t quite sturdy enough for you, just add an extra piece of card stock in the bottom of your box on the inside.)
 I would love to see all of your ideas!
Thank you for joining me today!

Huggles,  Wanda

Delightful Challenges - Get Punchy

This weeks challenge was to "Get Punchy"  I had so much fun with this!
First all my punches I used:
MS Loopy Loop
MS  All Around Scallops
Creative Memories Sweetheart
EK Success
Die Cut for the Heart
I cut the heart out of DD Digital Valentine paper and then used the left overs from the EK Success punch all around the edge.
The little Digi is Penny and Bear I colored her with my Kor-n-nor pencils and OMS.
I put some Stickeles on her dress to add some sparkle
Added the Ribbon and she's ready for Valentines!

This is a couple of the Candy Bar wrappers I made using Digital Delights,
Digital Valentine Paper.  I wrapped the candy and then crimped the ends.  The Digi's are also from Digital Delights. Which by the way are on a fabulous sale right now! 
 The first one is Cuddles Sends Love and Love Me Not circular sentiment. 
The second is Love You Larry.    I made these for my Kids Teachers. 

Betty Bee's Buzz - Tie One On.

This week's inspiration was to do something with "Ribbons"  I decided it would be fun to make a ribbon weave.  When I was little I loved to make hot pads.  I used the same kind of theory on this.  I taped the red ribbon onto a piece of paper and made sure they were really close.  I then took the white and pink ribbon and weaved it though the red.  I used my Xyron and bonded the back together.  To cut out the heart on the white CS I used the Fiskar's UFO...  The punch is by EK Success.  To finish it off I used this darling little girl from Whoopsie Daisy.  The "For You" sticker is something I just had laying around.  I really don't know where I got it.  LOL  Now pop on over and join us in the fun at Betty Bee's Buzz.
