Double Z Fun Fold Cards

I have another fun fold card for you today!!  This one is Double Z Fun Fold card that is so easy, but looks so hard - such a fake out!!!

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.



Learn how to make these cards in the video below.


I used the wonderful Ida Rose Stamps on the cards.  They are so cute and there is a giveaway going on via my video - so watch the video to see all in the info about the giveaway!!   The first card i made using the Birds of a Feather stamp set.


When it opens it pulls apart to reveal the Double Z portion of the card.  Inside is a sweet sentiment stamps also from Ida Rose Stamps!


To hold all the paper layers of the Z fold together I used my Xyron Tape Runner - a card makers tool!!  


The second card had a cute whale on the front with balloon as part of the air lift Ida Rose Stamp set. 


Check out how this card looks opened up!


I used the same stamp set to make the 3rd card, but this time a cute elephant!


If you notice when the card is opened parts of the center stamped image should not have adhesive, only the left and center need to be stick down.


I of course applied my Xyron Taper Runner adhesive to the whole back section, but the easy fix is the Xyron Adhesive Eraser, it took off my excess sticky stuff so that my card would open!!  Fun fact - this adhesive eraser is about 5 years old - they last forever!!!


So now that everything is stuck to the correct places and not where it should not be, the card can open up to make the Double Z fold like seen below!


These are such cute cards to make that have a big WOW but are really easy to make!

DIY Upcycled Stained Glass Containers from Oui Yogurt Jars

I love to upcycle containers and glass jars are my favorite!  I diced to try out the Oui Yogurt and they came in a super cute jar!  I pulled out my etching solution and glass paints and had some fun!

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.


Check out the video to see how to make these fun containers!


I started off with the Oui jars, cleaned off the labels to get them ready for the next step.


Next I added the Etchall vinyl and etching solution to give parts of the glass and frosted look.


Next I cleaned off the Etchall etching creme and applied the Pebeo black liner, and then added in the Vitrea glass paint to make the jars look like they are made of stained glass.


Amazing how you can take one simple item and turn it into something amazing with just a few simple steps.


What fun upcycle project are you doing to do now?

DIY Foam Tape PLUS a Shaker Bee Fun Fold Card

I love to add a pop of dimension to my cards to make them shakers or just to elevate an elements to make it higher - so to do that you need a 3D elements to raise up that stamp or image.  Foam dots, squares or mounting tape are the easiest and lightness way to raise up those embellishments, but that foam tape can get super expensive - so why not learn to make your own!!  In this post I show you how to make your own foam tape and then use it on a bee themed shaker card!!

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.  Various companies provided me with some product to create this project.  The opinions I share are solely my own.


Check out the video on how I made these cute bee cards!!


I used my Xyron Tape runner to stick all the layers of paper together, and they stick wonderfully!!  I also made these card not only a shaker card, but a fun fold card!!  So there is a fun extra hidden fold in the card!


Directions and measurements for this card are as follows:

  1. Cut Cardstock into an A2 sized card 5.5 X 8.5 fold in half
  2. Cut other half into 4.25 x 7.75 fold in half - this is the inside hidden card
  3. Back mat (yellow) dimensions - 4 1/8 x 5 1/4


I also used my Xyron 3" Sticker Maker for all the sequins and the cut out stamped and colored items such as the bees and the hive.



I also made my own foam 3D sheets.  This is perfect for making shaker cards like the one on the front of these bee cards.  Check out the video below to see how easy it is to make your own foam sheets - then you can cut it to be any shape you want!!!



Making your own foam sheets is so easy with Xyron, and you can use any size sticker maker or the Creative Station you want to make these!!  Best part is you can cut the sheets to any size you want!



What fun cards are you making?
