Tutorial Thursday - Little Case


Hallo ihr Lieben,

heute bin ich wieder an der Reihe, euch einen Workshop auf dem Whiff of Joy-Blog zu zeigen.

Ich zeige euch, wie man diesen süßen kleinen Koffer aus Graupappe werkelt.

Aber zunächst zeige ich euch den fertigen Koffer, verschönert mit dem Henry aus dem Juli-Digi-Release.


today it's again my turn to show you a little tutorial at the Whiff of Joy Blog. 

I wanna show you how to make a little suitcase with grey cardboard.

But first here it is, my little suitcase. Pimped with the cute Henry from the July-Digi-Release.

Und nun zum Workshop:

Diese Vorlage solltet ihr euch auf DIN A4 ausdrucken und auf ein Stück Graupappe mit 1,5mm Dicke zeichnen.


Here is the tutorial:

Print these pictures to a sheet of paper DIN A4 and then draw it on grey cardboard with a thickness of 1,5mm.

Das 1. Bild ist der Boden des Koffers, das 2. Bild der Deckel und Griff.


First picture shows the bottom of the suitcase, the second lid and handle.

So sieht dann die ausgeschnittene Vorlage aus.
Wo ich auf der Vorlage die gestrichelten Linien eingezeichnet habe, müsst ihr ganz sanft mit einem Messer einritzen. Aufpassen, dass der Schnitt nicht durch geht. Er soll nur das Knicken vereinfachen.


That's the way the cut-out template looks. 
Where I have drawn on the template the dashed lines, you have to  carve with a knife very gently. Take care that the cut does not go through. The cut only intended to simplify the wrinkles.

Und nun sanft knicken.


And now bent gently.

Wo die Punkte eingezeichnet sind, könnt ihr mit dem Crop-a-dile oder einem anderen Werkzeug kleine Löcher stanzen.


Where I have drawn the points, you can punch out little wholes with the crop-a-dile or another tool.

Wer mag kann die Kanten aller Graupappeteile nun wischen, um dem Koffer einen used-look zu geben.
Das ist aber Geschmackssache.


If you like, you can wipe all edges of the cardboard with ink, so it got an used-look.
But that's optional. Just if you want it.

Die Seiten werden nun zugeklebt und zusätzlich mit Brads befestigt.


The pages are now taped and additionally fastened with brads.

Nun kommt der Deckel an die Reihe. Auch hier wird an der gestrichelten Linie leicht geritzt und dann gefalzt.
Auch hier natürlich die Ränder wischen.


Now the lid's turn. Also slightly scratched on the dotted line and then folded. 

Again, of course, wipe the edges.

Um den Deckel zu schließen braucht man jetzt noch ein Stück Graupappe mit den Maßen 3cm x 8cm.
Dieses Stück wird genau in der Mitte bei 1,5cm geritzt und gefaltet.


To close the cover you need  a piece of gray cardboard with dimensions 3cm x 8cm. 

This piece is scored right in the middle at 1.5 cm and then folded.

Nun wird erst der Deckel an das Unterteil geklebt.


Now  the cover is glued to the bottom part.

Um den Koffer zu schließen wird nun noch das kleine Stück Graupappe an den Deckel geklebt.


To close the case the small piece of gray cardboard is glued to the lid now.

Nun kommt der schönste Teil, das Verzieren. Aber da wisst ihr ja, wie das geht. ;o)


Now comes the best part........beautity......well I think, you now how this works. ;o)

Sweet and Simple Cardsets

DSC_7007 copy_thumb[1]

I am trying to build up a collection of cute little sets of cards that can be mailed off quickly and without a huge postage cost. Minimize the bulk and you will be able to send these at a reasonable price ;)

  1. Start with  a few different colors of cardstock and matching ink pads.
  2. Cut the colored cardstock to measure 4’ x 5.25”.
  3. Cut card bases from regular white cardstock to measure 4.25’ x 5.5”. Fold in half and round  upper right-hand corner.
  4. Using a background stamp, stamp each piece of colored cardstock with the coordinating ink. Round upper right corner.
  5. Pick a focal image stamp. I used the gorgeous WoJ  Feather stamp set for my cards. Emboss using white embossing powder.
  6. Cut vellum strips to measure 2” x 4”. Sew onto your colored cardstock with white thread. I used a zig zag stitch.
  7. Adhere to the car dbases. Add assorted bling and stamp your sentiment with black ink. I used various sentiments from Whiff of Joy.
  8. Set aside to dry so that the ink sets and will not smear on the vellum

That’s it. By doing this in assembly line steps, you will have a whack of cards in no time flat!

Tag, you're it
Hello everyone!
Today is Tuesday and that means another "Tag, you're it"-theme.

"Tag You're It Tuesday" means that a member of the Whiff of Joy team gets to surf the web and all the social media spots for someone special who inspires them to create something similar. We find our projects on our facebook page, pinterest or the challenge entries. So if you are sharing a Whiff of Joy project through social medias tag us with @whiffofjoy or #whiffofjoy and we will find it. And maybe you'll be the next inspiration for "Tag You're It Tuesday"

So for my inspiration I found a beautiful card on Pinterest and contacted the owner of the photo but unfortunately I never heard anything back. So I kept looking for more inspirations and after I had contacted four different people asking to feature their card here on the blog I was out of time and had to do the post. I guess a lot of people are on vacation now since it is in the middle of summer. But I didn't want to keep this page empty so I still went ahead and made a card using all of the inspiration I had found.

To make this card I used paper from Bazzil and some old ribbon I had in my stash. I also diecut some hearts from the Hearts Die-Light and what card is complete without a few butterflies? The butterflies are from the Large Butterfly Die-Light and the stamp is from the Birthday Phrases stamp set.

Here is a closeup of the card:

So that was all for me today, I hope you liked my card even though I wasn't able to show you my inspiration. And as usual, all of the products I used can be found in supply list below.

Erika Winterlia

Supplies used:
Large Butterflies - Set of 4 dies 
Hearts Die-Lights - set of 6 

Birthday Phrases - Set of 8 - English Sentiments
