Christmas Goodie Bags

Hey friends, Laura here today! One of my favorite things to make is little goodie bags to hold treats. The Goodie Bag Guide makes it so easy to do out of any paper you have on hand, so you can coordinate it perfectly to the holiday or party theme of your choice.

Christmas Goodie Bags by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

My go to set up for a small goodie bag is to create the bag, add a couple of banner pieces in coordinating colors, find a die cut that matches the theme, and then add a sentiment. I then either tie, staple, or clip the bag closed. This design is a cohesive way to pull together any theme.

To create a smaller sized bag (3.5” wide), start by trimming your paper to 8” wide. You can use a paper trimmer or the straight edge of the goodie bag guide. Line up your paper using the 8” marks as your guide and tear along the top and bottom of your paper.

Use the goodie bag guide to create the folds for your bag and assemble the bags together using adhesive. You can make a lot of bags in a short period of time. It is easiest to make the bags using a thinner paper. Cardstock and double-sided patterned paper are more difficult to tear and fold.

After I have my bags created, I made two banner pieces for each bag. I did one that is a little wider and shorter, and a second one that is longer and thinner. Trim your paper to the width you would like and use the banner punch board to create the V-shape in the bottom of the banner. Then, use your paper trimmer to cut the banner to the length you want.

To add a Merry Christmas sentiment, I created a small tag using the Clear Cut punch.

I added some Crate Paper stickers that said “Merry Christmas” to each one.

Fill up your bag with a special treat. I love these little gummy Christmas wreaths! They are festive and super delicious.

Fold the top of the bag over. Layer on the two banner shapes, plus a Christmas die cut ephemera piece. Add on the little tag and clip everything together using a decorative paper clip.

These little goodie bags are perfect for stocking stuffers, class parties, or even as a decorative way to give a gift card. Add in a few yummy treats with the gift card, and I know it will be well received.

Happy Jig Holiday Cards

Hello, We R fans! Christmas will be here in no time! Lots to do, especially when it comes to holiday crafting. Today I’m sharing a set of cards that is perfect if you’re looking for a fun and easy way to send season’s greetings.

The Happy Jig is all you need to make an impact, and wow the recipients with your cards. Once you have all the pegs set up on the board, creating sentiments or shapes goes rather quickly.

Happy Jig Holiday Cards by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

I started by trimming all the individual pieces from the new DCWV Farmhouse Christmas Premium Stack. I wanted my cards to be simple, so I just layered several patterned papers, making sure to use foam adhesive in between for more dimension.

For the first card, I used the Banner Punch Board to create two banners, which I then machine-stitched together. I used my Stitch Happy Sewing Machine to create a border around the card panel, and give it a bit of interest and finished look.

I added stickers from the same collection before hand-stitching the “merry” sentiment in place. I love the variety of colored wire I can choose from – this red one is perfect for Christmas!

The second card features different patterns, as well as a beautiful, festive 3×4 card that I placed right on top.

I decided to go with “Joy” for my sentiment.

As in the first card, I machine-stitched around the patterned paper for texture, and hand-stitched the wire word in place. Some twine wrapped around the panel finished the card.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my process, and feel inspired to use the super fun Happy Jig for your next Holiday cards.

Make a Fall Banner with the Happy Jig

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with some home décor for fall. It seems that I am always pulled towards creating projects for our house. Adding a personal and handmade touch is wonderful, but its also great to be able to add a trendy touch without breaking the bank. I mean, who can change all the pillows and blankets out all the time? But by using my We R Memory Keepers tools and some patterned papers, I can create a lovely piece of seasonal décor, and be a bit fashionable as well.

Fall Banner with the Happy Jig by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

I began by using my Banner Punch board and that fantastic checkered paper from Pebbles new line, My Bright Life. I am seeing that black and white gingham everywhere, and I love it! The Banner Punch Board is a constant friend on my desk, making quick work of creating pendants that are the exact size and style I want.

Fall Banner with the Happy Jig by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

After layering some other papers, die cut images, and ribbon, I started to create the leaf image from Copper Happy Jig Wire. The booklet that comes with the Happy Jig provides clear instructions for making the shapes.

Fall Banner with the Happy Jig by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

After following the image and placing my pegs, I wrapped the wire around. The wire shapes come together easily. The dimension they add to a project is really cool!

Tip: I use a liquid adhesive to secure my wire shapes to my projects.

Another We R Memory Keepers tool that comes in handy when making banners is another on of my old favorites, the Crop-A-Dile. To punch the holes for the twine (used to hang the banner), simply stack all your pieces together and punch through every piece at once. No mistakes and no misalignment.

How to Make a Fall Banner

Hello, We R fans, Laura here today showing you how to create a pretty fall banner with two of my favorite tools – the banner punch board and the mini alphabet punch board. The banner punch board makes it so easy to create banners quickly and easily.

Fall Banner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Start by trimming your fall themed papers to 4 inches by 6 inches. You will need six different patterns of paper.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

Use the banner punch board to create a flag shaped banner. I like to line up the corners of my paper at the cutting groove. I waste the least amount of paper this way and then each banner piece is the same size.

We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board

Use the banner punch board to punch holes in the corner of each banner piece.

Next, I used the mini alphabet punch board to spell out the word “FALL” from orange textured cardstock. Trim the paper so it is 1.5” x 2.5” to start. Use the instructions for the mini alphabet punch board to guide you in how to punch and cut the letters.

We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board

Since the letters are small, I decided to add a brown rosette behind each one. Use a piece of textured brown cardstock and the trim & score board to score your paper every half inch.

Fall Banner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Use the rosette punch to create a decorative edge on the paper. One I had the entire 12” x 12” paper punched along one edge, I trimmed the paper, so it was only 2” wide by 12” long.

We R Memory Keepers Rosette Punch

Fold the paper accordion style and then use hot glue to attach the ends of the rosette together. Use hot glue to secure the middle of the rosette so it stays together. I attached the letters to the rosettes using hot glue, and then attached the whole thing to my banner pieces using hot glue, as well.

Fall Banner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I added some pretty fall ephemera to the two end banner pieces and the letters. I attached all the banner pieces together using brown and white baker’s twine. Tie each piece together using a small bow.

Fall Banner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I love the way this banner turned out. I will be able to leave it up from September through November and it is the perfect way to start my holiday decorating this year.

Fall Banner by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

The rosette helps to make the letters stand out while also providing a fun detail to the banner pieces.

Adding the ephemera to both the letters and the end pieces ties the whole banner together to create a beautiful display piece for fall.

Our Favorite Colors: Home Office Decor

Hello and Happy Friday crafty friends! Aly Dosdall here with you again to share a project I made with my current favorite color scheme–Blush Pink, Mint, Teal, and Cornflower Blue.

Home Office Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I recently renovated my craft room and I’m really an aqua/teal kind of girl. My decor before the renovation was mint, teal, blue, aqua, green and brown. But I’m loving all the blush pink I’ve seen paired with those colors recently, so I’ve started following suit.

Home Office Decor by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I started by grabbing papers in my favorite colors from the Crate Paper Oasis and Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collections.

First I made a “family” banner with my Mini Alphabet Punch Board.

To speed things up I grabbed my Square Punch Board and punched out four 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch rectangles, and one 2 1/2 inch square (for the letter M). Then I used my Alphabet Punch Board app to create the letters for my banner.

I used washi tape to secure the yarn to the back of the letters. I chose a yarn color to match my color scheme, and then tied it to my folding ruler.

I added a few embellishments, including a tropical leaf I made with the Happy Jig and some green wire.

Once I finished decorating my folding ruler as the focal point on the wall above my desk, I surrounded it with wall decor in the same color scheme.

Our Favorite Colors: Handmade Card Set

Hello, We R friends, Laura here today! I am sharing a fun card set I made with some of my current favorite colors – teal, blue, and pink. I think this color combination is so fun and the adorable Pink Paislee Wild Child Girl collection is perfect for this color theme.

Favorite Colors Card Set by Laura Silva 1

Favorite Colors Card Set by Laura Silva 12To make each card base I started by trimming a 12” x 12” piece of paper to 6” x 8” using the Trim & Score board. I scored the long side at 4” to easily be able to fold the card in half. This will make a card with a finished size of 4” x 6”.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

To embellish the first card, I trimmed teal heart patterned paper from the Wild Child paper pad to fit on the card. I also trimmed a blue and a pink sheet of cardstock to 1 ¾” and then used the banner punch board to create flag shaped banner pieces.

We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board

I used the word punch board to spell out the word HELLO on a pretty floral paper. I used an extra piece of the blue cardstock behind the word so that the word showed up better on the card. I trimmed each end of the word with a v shape to mimic the banner pieces I already made.

We R Memory Keepers Word Punch Board

I attached the hello sentiment to the top of the banner pieces.

I started creating the second card in the same way as I did for the first. I cut a piece of patterned guitar paper to fit on the card base. Then, I used the square punch board to create three mats for this cute cool cat die cut. The square punch board makes it so easy to cut perfectly sized squares and rectangles in so many sizes.

We R Memory Keepers Square Punch Board

I added some twine around the patterned paper that reminded me a little bit of the guitar strings, and then added the guitar die cut using adhesive foam dots.

For the final card, I only used the Trim & Score board. I created the card base from teal cardstock. I added a teal and blue floral paper to the front of the card. I also added a blue cardstock strip along the bottom third of the card. I found a pink tag from the Wild Child ephemera set and added some twine to embellish the top.

Handmade Card featuring the Trim and Score Board by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Then, I attached a floral die cut using foam adhesive dots to give the card a little dimension.

I love this color combination of the teal, pink, and blue for these cards. They would be the perfect little set to give as a gift. You could even make coordinating envelopes to go with them using the envelope punch board! What is your favorite color combination?

Father’s Day Mini Book

Hello friends, Laura here this Monday with a Father’s Day gift idea for the special dad in your life. I created a little mini accordion banner book that says, “I ♥ DAD” when opened. There are a few places to add photos to make the gift personalized for your dad.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I started by created ten banner shapes using my paper trimmer and banner punch board. I cut each rectangle to 4 ½” x 6 inches using the Trim & Score board. I chose various shades of blue paper from the DCWV Nautical Mile cardstock stack.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

I lined up one edge of the longer side of the paper with the 4-inch mark on the banner punch board. This will create a somewhat uneven banner because there will be an extra half inch on the left side of the banner shape.

We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board

Use the Trim & Score board to score each banner shape at ½” on the left side of the banner shape. This will be the flap we use to connect all the banner pieces together.

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

Next, I used the mini alphabet punch board to create the letters I, D, A, and D.

We R Memory Keepers Mini Alphabet Punch Board

I created a striped heart with the Clear Cut heart punch.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

I wanted to make little tags to place each of the letters and heart onto. The tag punch board made this easy. I cut rectangles that were 2 ½ x 3 ½ inches using my Trim & Score board. Then, I used the tag punch board to create the tag edges and punch a hole in the top.

Tag Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I added a red eyelet to the top of each tag using my Crop-A-Dile.

We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile

Now that I had all the pieces cut out, it was time to assemble the book. Use adhesive to attach each letter and the heart to a tag shape. Then, attach each tag to a separate banner piece. To assemble all the banner pieces together, use adhesive to attach the flap of one banner to another one. Leave a blank banner between the letters and the heart on either side.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

There will be a slight overlap where you glue the banner pieces together. Simply trim off the excess paper using your scissors.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

To create a more finished book, I glued the first and last banner piece to the back side of the banner piece next to it, so there was a total of ten banner pieces, but only eight banner pieces show when the book is spread out. I also added a little ribbon into the pieces I glued together on the front and back, so I could tie the book together on the left side when it was closed.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

 

Once everything is glued together you can fold the banner pieces like an accordion to close the book.

The book was cute as is, but I thought it would be fun to add pictures of the kids to the inside. I resized black and white photos of the kids to 3 x 4 inches. I printed them on my home computer, trimmed them down and added them to the blank pages. On the front cover I matted the picture on an extra piece of patterned paper that matched the letters inside.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

There is room to add two more pictures on the last two pages of the book, so you could add up to a total of five photos.

Father's Day Mini Book by Laura Silva for We R Memory Keepers

Dad can flip through the album with it tied together, or you can spread it out like a traditional banner if you untie the ribbon.

DIY Paper Crown for Kids

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today bringing you a fun and easy Paper Crown you can make with your kids.

Easy Paper Crown with the Banner Punch Board by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

My 3 year old, Lorenzo, told me a few days ago he wanted a crown so I thought this assignment would be perfect  to craft with him and make a fun and easy king crown. I tried to do everything with him and he was happy to help, cut and use all the tools he isn’t allowed to use on a regular basis!

I used my Trim and Score Board to cut two 6×12 inch yellow cardstock strips . I put the paper on and he used the cut blade. I also made a mark on both strips at 4 inch height.

Trim and Score Board by We R Memory Keepers

I placed my strips on the Banner Punch Board at the 6 inch mark and my son used the blade to cut from the 4 inch mark to the top. The blades are tiny but sharp so never leave you kid unattended!

Banner Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

We also used the Cool Kids stack from DCWV and the Tear Guides to create a decor for the base of the crown.  I held the Tear Guide in place and my son used the water pencil, he loved using this tool!

Tear Guides by We R Memory Keepers

I asked him what shape he wanted on his crown and he chose this hexagon because it looked  like a jewel.  We used the Clear Cut Punch together and cut 7 hexagons from this lovely  Holiday Jewels Stack from DCWV.

Hexagon Clear Cut Punch by We R Memory Keepers

We also used the pompom maker to make a lilac pompom for the top of the crown, he had fun rolling the yarn in the tool and I cut and assemble the pompom afterwards.

We attached the hexagons with foam dots and to embellish them we used buttons. To embellish the other tips of the crown we punched several circles with the Reinforce Hole Punch.

Hole Reinforcer Punch by We R Memory Keepers

Finally I attached everything with the new USB Glue Gun, the detail tip was perfect to attach those tiny circles on top of the crown.

USB Mini Glue Gun by We R Memory Keepers

I measured my son’s head and assembled the crown with my USB Glue Gun.

He was so happy and could not wait to try it! He is definitely the King of the House!

Throwback Thursday: Trolls Birthday Party Decor

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here! I’m lucky to be auntie to a pretty awesome niece who just had a birthday. Her party theme? Trolls! Of course, I had to contribute to her mama’s party décor:

Trolls Birthday Party Decor by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers featuring the DIY Party Board

First, I made party hats inspired by the character of Poppy. I started by using the We R Memory Keepers DIY Party Board to make hats out of pink cardstock. Next, I put double-sided tape inside the bottom of the hat, then stuck several strips of 6” wide glitter tulle to the tape. I pulled the tulle up around the hat and secured it with a ribbon sealed with the We R Memory Keepers Ribbon Cutter. To give the hats that extra “Poppy” touch, I hand cut her signature felt flowers to adorn each one.

Second, I made party blowers, again with the DIY Party Board. I used a rainbow of cardstock colors and embellished each one with another cartoony felt flower. Tip: After you’ve used the (not custom and not nearly as cute) blowers from the party store, save the blower pieces and toss the paper cones. You can glue in your own cones later!

Trolls Birthday Party Decor by Tessa Buys for We R Memory Keepers featuring the DIY Party Board

You can’t have a birthday without banners and garlands! I made my niece a banner featuring her name with the Alphabet Punch Board. Bazzill foil cardstock made it shiny like the hats. I strung it with the same tulle I used on the hats and embellished with more Poppy-style flowers.

I also used the Banner Punch Board and the DIY Party Paper Punch: Garland to create a couple more garlands in colored cardstock. Altogether, and combined with the party décor my sister purchased in the Trolls theme, my niece had a colorful, fun, and unique party!
