DIY Party Board Floral Wrap

Hello friends, it’s Aly Dosdall here today! I’m so excited to share my DIY Party Board project with you. I decided to create something with a bit of a twist. I used one of the standard partyware items (treat pouch) and turned it into a pretty floral wrap!

I followed the directions in the included instruction booklet to make a treat pouch. I cut my 12×12 kraft cardstock to 9×9 inches.

Then, according to the directions, I used the A guide on number 11 to cut the paper into the required shape. To watch an overview video of how the DIY Party Board works, CLICK HERE.

I used my Red Double Sided Sticky Thumb tape (my favorite for 3D projects) to adhere the paper into a cone shape, and then added a white paper doily, some twine, and embellishments.

Finally, I added some pale pink rose buds and greens so I can take it to a friend who needs a little sunshine in her life.

This floral wrap is perfect for a friend or neighbor gift, a bridesmaid gift, wedding decor, bridal shower decor, or for an anniversary party. You could also add some ribbon and hang one on your door for a spring door hanger. Thanks for joining me today, and I hope you have fun making DIY Party Board creations!

DIY Party Board Cupcake Stand

Hello We R fans! Kimberly here with a confession. I have a thing for cake stands. It’s bad. I have many of them. Many, many cake stands. Once I saw the cool things you could create with the DIY Party Board, my mind instantly thought, hey, maybe I could make a cake stand with it!

These easy and adorable cupcake stands were a snap to create. No, really!

Take a closer look at the DIY Party Board. It has the guide labels and placements for each project on the board!

There are three moveable guides, all clearly labeled A, B, or C. The cutting blade fits inside each one, but stores in the A guide.

The instruction book, included with the board, lists what size piece of paper you need for each project. To create my taller cupcake stand, I used the dimensions for the 9-ounce cup cover. I placed my Pink Paislee Moonstruck patterned paper in the corner, as shown.

Then I placed my guide. The guides and the board are labeled for easy movement. And I love the pegs that hold the guides in place. There was never any slipping while cutting!

You can see how the blade fits in the guide and cuts a perfect line. I repeated the same process for the shorter cupcake stand, using the dimensions for the 8-ounce ice cream cup cover.

Once the paper was cut, I used Doubled-Sided Super Sticky Red Tape to hold the ends in place. A very strong adhesive is needed to keep the two sides together when being used as a base like this. The two ends of the cut patterned paper line up perfectly along the top and bottom, when they are the correct dimensions. So simple.

To create the tops of the cupcake stands, I traced a small plate onto thin chipboard and then on Pink Paislee Moonstruck Chalkboard Floral patterned paper. The chipboard I used came from a cereal box. It added extra stability to the top, to support the cupcake.

Around the narrower end of the cup shapes, a line of glue from the Mini Cordless Hot Glue Gun was added. Then I placed the cup, or now the base, onto the underside of the top. By doing this “upside down,” it allows the base to settle into the top, and to be much more accurate when attempting to get the base in the center.

DIY Party Fringe Tape was adhered around the outside edge of the cupcake stand top. Sequin Stickers were also added. Pink Paislee Moonstruck Ephemera was used to create the butterfly cupcake picks. And, because the DIY Party Board also creates cupcake wraps, I had to wrap these in more patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Moonstruck collection.

DIY Party Hats

Hey there We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here. I have some really cute party hats to share with you today that I created using the DIY Party Board and the Trim and Score Board. It’s so easy to create party hats using the Party Board.

DIY Party Hats by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers
I started by trimming a 12″ piece of paper down to a 9×9″ square of paper.

party-hat-punch-board-party-hats-by-becki-adams_6

When I had the 9″ square of patterned paper I used the Party Board to cut it into shape. After cutting the paper I shaped it into a cone. I adhered the paper with strong liquid adhesive and staples. For this project I cut and adhered 3 party hats but the Party Board is so easy to use that you can create as many party hats as you’d like. Yes, they’re that easy to create.

When I had the base of the party hat created I added a yarn pom pom at the top and three strands of yarn at the base. To embellish the front of the party hats I created rosettes using the Trim and Score board. I cut two strips of patterned paper (12″x1 1/2″) to create each rosette.

party-hat-punch-board-party-hats-by-becki-adams_7
I scored the strips at 1/2 inch, adhered them end to end, and accordion folded them.

I made each rosette slightly different by adding different die cuts and stickers.

DIY Party Board Valentine Treat Pouches

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here on this lovely Valentine’s Day with my first DIY Party Board project – glassine treat pouches!

DIY party Board Valentine Treat Pouches

These pouches are super easy to decorate for any occasion, so even if you don’t have time today to make some for your Valentine, I still have some great tips for you! To make your treat pouches from Oh Goodie glassine paper, first trim your paper to 9 inches square. If you plan to keep the pouches food safe, use the Oh Goodie Guide to tear the excess paper; if not, just use your trusty trimmer. My candies were individually wrapped, so I used my trimmer.

With guide A in place at the 11 mark, use the blade to cut out your pouch shape. Glassine paper is delicate, but if you follow these tips, your cut will be perfect: Tip #1: Start with the blade in the center and slide the blade to the right edge. Then return the blade to the center and cut to the left edge. Tip #2: Slide the blade swiftly; pausing may cause the blade to catch. Tip #3: When sliding the blade, hold the paper above the guide taut – the extra tension will help the blade move smoothly through the glassine paper.

With the point upward, fold over the sides and secure with adhesive. Fold over the point to close the pouch. I did not seal my pouch at this point, but instead used a binder clip to attach some decoration and close each bag.

I also used the DIY Party Board to create a wrap for my mini cactus. The 8 ounce ice cream cup wrap was the perfect size for this little pot.
