Halloween Treat Bags with the DIY Party Board

Hello everyone! It’s Eva Pizarro on the blog today sharing a quick and easy way to use your DIY Party Board to make Treat Bags for your Halloween parties.

The DIY Party Board is all you need to make your party decorations a success. With it you can make party hats, cupcake wrappers, party horns and of course treat bags.

To make the treat tags cut your paper following the board instructions. I am using Pebbles’ Midnight Haunting collection.

Wrap the papers and secure the treat bags with your hot glue gun. Fill them with candies and close them.

To make the embellishments I used my Fringe and Score Board and made some paper rosettes.

I also used my Ribbon Cutter to seal the edge of my ribbons. No more fraying, yay!

The treat bag is quite big and you can put lots of candies inside. These treat bags would be perfect to give to coworkers or maybe as favors for your Halloween party.

Cactus Home Decor with the Stitch Happy

Hi everybody! Soraya here with you today to show you a cute and fun tutorial using the incredible Stitch Happy sewing machine. And I can tell you that the simple fact of using it will surely make you happy!

Cactus Home Decor with the Stitch Happy sewing machine by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

So to show you how amazing is this multimedia sewing machine, I made a cactus frame decor for my daughter’s bedroom using felt, fabrics, papers and some colorful threads and twines.

Stitch Happy sewing machine by We R Memory Keepers

First of all, I used my Supreme Ruler to cut the black felt in the right dimensions so it can fit the background of the frame (I removed the glass for this project).

Supreme Ruler by We R Memory Keepers

Then I used one of the cards from the Stitch Happy Card Kit and the DIY Party Board to create the pocket where all the different cactus will “grow”.

In this card kit, there are also lots of happy diecuts to decorate so I grabbed the bike and stitched it to the pocket with some pink thread. The result is awesome!  After that I sewed the pocket directly on the black felt which is now the background of the frame decor.

To set the title “HELLO” I put some washi tape on the letters so that they can stay in place. I removed the washi tape just after the sewing process.

Let’s draw the cactus! I used different shades of green fabrics to make them.  They are so delicate and cute, I love how they turned!

Then I started to sew them all with some yellow thread! For the big cactus on the front, I used the “back” button of the sewing machine to create the needles and it worked very well!

To finish this frame decor I put back the background in the white frame and glued some resin flowers and leaves on it!

DIY Paper Fans

Hello We R fans, and happy Friday! It’s Aly with you again today sharing an easy and fun summer kids craft that you can make with your DIY Party Board and some paper from your scrapbook stash. I found this project on the Idea Room blog HERE. When I saw these fans, I immediately thought of the DIY Party Board, and knew this awesome tool would make these fans a snap!

DIY Paper Fans by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

This project is easy for kids to make, and requires supplies that you’ve likely already got on hand.

DIY Paper Fan by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Plus, they’re perfect for the warm summer months!

DIY Paper Fans by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

Start by placing your 12×12 paper into the DIY Party Board with the corner placed into the alignment guide.

Place your A and C cutting guides at numbers 11 and 7 on the board, respectively.

Cut along each guide with your blade so that you end up with the shape shown in the photo below.

Punch a hole in the ends of 5 wooden craft sticks (or popsicle sticks) with the Crop-A-Dile using the 1/8th inch punch.

Then stack them up and thread a metal brad through the holes, bending the ends of the brad so that it stays in place.

Fan out the popsicle sticks that that they’re evenly spaced with the outside sticks placed near the edges of the paper you just cut. Hot glue the sticks to the back of the paper with the front of the brad facing down.

Once the glue is dry, stack the sticks on top of each other, folding the paper and creasing it as you go.

You can change out the paper for whatever event or occasion you’re celebrating. The kids would love picking out their own patterns and colors of paper.

DIY Paper Fans by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory KeepersI chose papers from the fun summer-themed Oasis collection from our sister brand, Crate Paper. I just love those flamingos!

Tooth Fairy Boxes

Hello everyone! Chantalle here, welcoming you back to the blog today.

My dear daughter has a changing smile at the moment, as she has started to loose a few more teeth. That little face, complete with a gappy grin just melts my heart! She has been using her brother’s homemade Lego tooth fairy box to store her tiny treasures, but I thought creating some special boxes would be a sweet way to mark the occasions.

I’ve created three types of small boxes. Well, strictly speaking they are not all boxes! For variety, I’ve made a little box, a box envelope and a little cone shaped one. Let me show you each one in a little more detail…

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The box envelope one was created using my 123 Punch Board. It’s extremely similar to creating a regular envelope on the board, with the exception of creating a few extra score lines.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The little green box opens to reveal some bright insides. (For those of you who keep your little one’s teeth, this little box could provide a neat storage option.)

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I used the smallest size noted on the measurement chart on the 123 Punch Board. The overall size of the box is 1 ¾ inches squared and uses a piece of bright and beautiful Amy Tangerine On a Whim, ‘Let’s Leaf’ trimmed to 6 x6 inches.

The paper is scored and punched on both sides to reveal the box shape. Use the notch punch, which is cleverly incorporated into the punch board (along with a corner rounder) to create the grooves where the top sections fold in to each other to close the box. Tip: Close opposites sides of the box first.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve decorated the outside of the box with some Heidi Swapp Rub ons, some Amy Tangerine Washi Tape and Stickers.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Inside, I have filled the box with some lovely yellow Vicki Boutin Tissue paper for a bit of fun.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The box envelope is very easily put together, as mentioned earlier. I started off with a piece of paper, trimmed down to 5 1/8 inches squared and followed the prompts in the instructions for the 123 Punch Board. Inside this box, is a pull out card where we can record the details of the tooth or a message to the Tooth Fairy.

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

A handy storage idea (and so that the Tooth Fairy can make a quick getaway if she chooses to leave the envelope behind) is to include a little packet to keep the tooth in, if you are worried about it falling out. I picked these ones up at a Dollar Store.

Another tip I thought I would share, is to close the envelope with a removable glue dot. That way, you can open and close it without causing any damage. The envelope has been embellished quite simply, using some High Five items, like a button, some stickers and a die cut circle. This one would be great for a little Mister who has lost a tooth as well!

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The third little box turned out to be my daughter’s favourite and she used it straight away!

Tooth Fairy Boxes by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Using my DIY Party Board I placed a sheet of Amy Tangerine On a Whim, ‘Sprinkle’ on to the board and cut a small triangular shape from the bottom. Note: I used the smaller guide and just cut a section off that I thought would work. You can of course, cut as big a shape as you like. I rolled up the shape, glued it shut and folded the top in a bit, further persuading it to stay in the rolled shape.

For a non-permanent closure, I have used a folded Oh Goodie Starburst Closure and a decorative bulldog clip. To the clip, I have attached a small tag with details of the tooth and finished it off with a cute butterfly die cut from a pack of Flower Girl Ephemera.

So excited to pop her tooth inside!

It’s just a matter of time before that gap widens, as we have the neighbouring top tooth loose as well!

Mini Party Hats

Happy Monday morning, and welcome to Kids Craft Week here on the blog! This week our team is sharing projects for kids, or that can be made with kids. They’ve got plenty of awesome ideas to keep little ones entertained over the summer, so be sure to check back often! First off is a great project idea from Soraya Maes.

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here with you today to share a creative activity we made together with my kids: mini party hats for their toys! And we had a lot of fun playing with the DIY Party Board which is now for sure, their favorite tool!

Mini Party Hats by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

For this special Kids Craft week I asked them if there was something they would love to create with me and they answered (without any hesitation!) that they would love to organize a birthday party for their toys! So this is what me made together and they were just amazed by the DIY Party Board. It was so cute!

My son started by cutting the colorful papers he selected with the Trim & Score Board. We needed 6×6 squares.

And my daughter did the same with her own selection of colorful papers. Then she started cutting the mini party hats shapes with the DIY Party Board!

Mother’s Day Brunch Decor

Hello again We R fans. Chantalle with you today – thank you for stopping by!

If you are thinking of treating a special Mother in your life to a picnic or outdoor activity, I’ve got some ideas that are quick to put together, which coordinate with some inexpensive store-bought items.

Mother's Day Brunch Decor by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

We all have a lot on our plates these days and I love an idea even more if it saves me a bit of time! Some fabulous graphic-printed picnic ware, spotted while out shopping, was the inspiration behind creating some custom table décor. I loved the colour combination and graphic pops of black. It’s these colours that I have run with and gone with a graphic feel for the items I created. Let’s take a closer look…

Mother's Day Brunch Decor by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

The little table centerpiece was created with some bbq staples – kebab sticks and a bit of foam, which I covered to match. I started off creating lots of super awesome little shapes, using my Trim & Score Board and my Triangle Score Guide. I’ve been busting to try this tool out for ages and now I had my chance! The basic principle behind every shape is simple scoring. At first, I was pretty intimidated, but once you get the initial scoring done, it’s just a matter of tracing your shape and cutting out with some scissors!

The instructions that come with the Triangle Score Guide are straightforward: Trim your paper to size, score vertically, then add the guide to your score board, then score again, creating angles, then flip the guide, rotate your paper and score one more time to product lots of triangles on your paper. You then not the shape you want to create, based on the size of paper you have, and cut out. Awesome!

Trim & Score Board and Triangle Score Guide by We R Memory Keepers

The shapes you create are great on their own on the table as décor, or you could string them along some sparkling thread for a great cake topper. So many possibilities!

Mother's Day Brunch Decor by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

When I was folding my shapes, I must have adhered two pieces in the wrong spot and accidentally came up with the shape below. It kinda looked like a wonky fortune cookie! It got me thinking that I could use it as a place card, so I embellished it with some yellow acrylic paint and added a splash of glitter paper. I really like American Crafts ‘Pow’ glitter paper as it runs through my Silhouette machine very well, it’s thin and doesn’t shed lots of glitter everywhere.

Mother's Day Brunch Decor by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

If Mum is going to be seated… surely she would need something to eat with? I saw this seriously cute cutlery bag idea on Pinterest and decided to make my own, using my Scalloped Goodie Bag Guide along with some Ombré Oh Goodie Glassine papers. I’ve chosen to work with the pink paper as it matched my paper plates and napkins.

Scallop Goodie Bag Guide by We R Memory Keepers

The scallop edge looked so pretty, I chose to keep it facing up instead of at the back of the bag. I’ve added some little On a Whim die cut shapes and tied it off with some silver twine.

Now, let’s treat Mum to a drink as sparkling as she is…

Customise some basic disposable drinkware with rubs-ons and stickers!

Mother's Day Brunch Decor by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve added a Vicki Boutin Rub-On to this clear champagne goblet, which turned out great! I love the subtle difference in the colour. I then added a Heidi Swapp sticker over the top and finished off with a few little enamel dots in coordinating shades. (This idea would also be great at a party to differentiate people‘s glasses.)

Mother's Day Brunch Decor by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

Does Mum prefer something a little warmer? How about a custom sleeve for her favourite brew?

Mother's Day Brunch Decor by Chantalle McDaniels for We R Memory Keepers

I created this coffee cup using the 9 Oz. measurements on my DIY Party Board. Simply trim your paper to size as instructed, then cut at two intervals along the board. Presto!

It has been embellished with some more rub-ons – I couldn’t resist!! This time I’ve used some Photo Lights Rub-Ons. I love how easily these rub-ons transfer and that some are pretty big.

Confetti makes for a fun and festive way to add a little dazzle to any table. Create your own, super fast, with a DIY Party Confetti Punch. I love this tool! (It was also a great way to use up the scraps from creating my graphic shapes.) Punch some foiled paper for a metallic pop!

DIY Jewelry Holders

Hi! Welcome to the We R blog! It’s Eva Pizarro here today sharing some jewelry organizers for your rings, earrings, bracelets etc.

DIY Jewelry Holders by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

I got my inspiration from this photo I found on Pinterest

These ring cones are super cute and I thought I could easily make them using my DIY party Board! I decided to use some papers from the Simple Life collection by Pebbles Inc. I simply placed them on my board and cut them using the C7 guide.

DIY Party Board by We R Memory Keepers

To give my papers a little more shine I used the floral art screen from Heidi Swapp and Minc Reactive Paint. It was my first time using this technique and I was amazed at how easy it was to get a perfect image! I let it dry and then run my paper through my Minc with gold foil, the result is gorgeous!

DIY Jewelry Holders by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers featuring the DIY Party Board and the Heidi Swapp Minc

I rolled my cones slightly tighter and glued them with hot glue. To give the cones some weight I added white clay to the base. I pushed it in the base of the cone with my finger, and then let it dry.

DIY Jewelry Holders by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

To complement my ring organization I decided to make a paper bowl. I followed this tutorial but I used my Triangle score guide to mark my paper. I love this tool! You can create amazing geometric shapes with it!

We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board and Triangle Score Guide

I scored my paper every 1.5 inches and this way you can get 2 bowls out of your 12 x 12 inch paper. You can insert one bowl inside the other or leave it single like I did.

I love how this project turned out! It is very  simple and I think it would make a great gift for a friend!

Baby Boy Cupcake Wraps

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here with a dapper set of cupcake wraps that I made for a new, sweet nephew:

Baby Boy Cupcake Wraps by Tessa Buys

Recently, the family gathered to celebrate little Paul’s baby blessing. I offered to decorate the cupcakes and between Bazzill’s gorgeous plaid cardstocks (in masculine shades of gray and white) and the We R Memory Keepers Party Board, it was so easy!

DIY Party Board by We R Memory Keepers

Making the cupcake wraps was a breeze, but I do have a helpful tip for you. Bazzill cardstock is so wonderfully sturdy, your regular tape runner will probably not be enough to keep the wraps securely fastened. I suggest using Sticky Thumb red tape.

Baby Boy Cupcake Wraps by Tessa Buys

While the wraps themselves were handsome enough, I couldn’t help but add die-cut renditions of my handsome nephew. Again, Bazzill cardstock is the best! And yes, this little man actually has a lot of dark, crazy hair, just like these cupcake toppers!

Baby Boy Cupcake Wraps by Tessa Buys

If you don’t already have the DIY Party Board on hand, it is the best investment! I’ve now used it for four family gatherings, and everyone is so impressed with how “custom” my décor is. From birthdays to baby boys, you will impress, too! Happy creating!

Easter Treat Bags

Hello everybody! Soraya here with you today to give you some Easter inspiration with three different cute little treat bags! I used the incredible DIY Party Board and the 1-2-3 Punch Board to make them, with scrapbook papers and  a glitter acetate paper too.

Easter Treat Bags by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

For the first triangle shaped treat bag, I used the Trim & Score Board to get a 9×9 inch paper square. Then I followed the instructions on the DIY Party Board and in order to make a treat pouch I used the marks A11. So easy and so fun!  Then I used a piece of the FUSEables yellow decorative tape along with a flower diecut and a resin rose to embellish the pouch.

Still with the DIY Party Board, I made a tiny party hat using the marks C7 and C1. How cute is this mini cone that will be filled up with yummy chocolate !  And here is a another tip for you : use a waterfall sleeve to hold the chocolate eggs, tie a knot and flip it before putting it in the cone ! That way, the candies won’t fall off the bags!

For the last treat package, I made a little gift box thanks to the amazing 1-2-3 Punch Board and to get more transparency (because those little eggs are so colorful to hide them) I made it with a gorgeous glitter acetate paper ! Then I  made a cute tag with the DIY Party Punch Tag and made a hole on a little pink label with my Crop-A-Dile.

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!
