The time-honored tradition of kissing your love at midnight can stay alive and well (and cootie free) with these adorable kisses, with a kissy face.

Using the Emoji Punch Board and the pre-cut paper pad, I made these kissy faces quickly! The faces are almost the exact same size as the candy, so they fit perfectly on the bottom with a small amount of adhesive.

Beginning with the heart eyes, I followed the instructions on the punch board. To create the heart eyes, I placed my paper on the side labeled “eyes” on the punch board. I flipped my paper over and punched the second eye. I followed that with the mouth, and then the final punch of the circle shape. These are so cute, I may need to make more for Valentine’s Day!

To help explain to the guests what the treat is, I created a card of sorts. Using the Word Punch Board, I created paper strips saying “kiss me at midnight.” Behind the letters, I layered glitter cardstock to bring some shine to the project. I also added a couple of glitter kissy faces to the card as well. Fast and fun and sure to be memorable as well!

Emoji Christmas Cards

Hello We R fans! It’s Aly here today to share a colorful and fun set of Christmas cards I made. I’m loving all the colorful holiday decor I’ve been seeing around the Interwebs this season, so I wanted to try my hand at a colorful Christmas project. I decided to make a set of Emoji Christmas Cards with the Emoji Punch Board!

Enoji Christmas Cards by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

To make these emoji holiday cards I grabbed my Emoji Punch Board and made 9 different emojis using the pre-cut papers and the instruction booklet included with the tool.

Then I grabbed the DCWV Inc Christmas Flipside stack and cut out some Christmas themed paper accessories to dress up my emojis. Tip: when fussing cutting shapes or patterns I love to use my Detail Scissors!

I created three layered cards with the Flipside stack, backed each emoji with a black cardstock circle that I punched out with the punch board, and then placed the embellished emojis on the card.

I punched out some sentiments with the Word Punch Board, including the new Numbers & Symbols Punches that are sold separately.

I backed the white sentiment strips I punched out with some red cardstock to add contrast so that the words are easily seen.

Halloween Emoji Garland

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva on the blog today showing you how to create a fun and easy Halloween garland using the Emoji Punch Board.

Halloween Emoji Garland by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

In Chile we don’t usually decorate our house for Halloween. My son however is really excited about this celebration and asked me if he could put some Halloween things in his bedroom. I made him this spooky garland with some emoji monsters because I knew he was going to love it!

To create the garland start by punching some icons with your Emoji Punch Board. I used different colors from this beautiful DCWV Holiday Jewels paper stack.

We R Memory Keepers Emoji Punch Board

Next, use your Mini Alphabet Punch Board to punch a word, in my case I spelled the word “Boooo”

After that, I added some details to my monsters using the scraps from the Punch Board and my Sticky Piercer. Be creative, monsters don’t have to be perfect!

Halloween Emoji Garland by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

Here are all the monsters I did. Let me give you a few ideas: I created the devil’s horns with some smiles in yellow.   The one eye monster was created aligning the paper on the mouth side instead of the eyes side. The purple monster has some upside down hearts on the back of his head and to create the mummy I simply glued some stripes before punching the emoji!

Finally, I glued all my emojis and letters to some twine with washi tape.

And here it is my Hallowee Garland, isn’t it cute? You can use these emojis for some many things: for your planner, as cupcake toppers and to decorate a Letterboard like I did in this post!

Thanks for joining me and have a great day!

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a teacher gift that is sure to leave everyone with smiles! Quick, easy, and thoughtful is the best kind of teacher gift you can make. Follow this fun idea and not only will it meet all those criteria, but the tools from We R Memory Keepers will make it fully customized, adding an extra-special finishing touch!

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

This gift has a few parts to it, but my favorite is the smiley face emoji sticky-note pad! Yes, those smiling faces, while finishing the tag sentiment by saying, “All SMILES because you’re my teacher,” are also sticky notes! What teacher wouldn’t love to have those cute supplies on their desk?! I know this former teacher thinks they are fantastic!

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

One tip to start, be sure and get the sticky notes that are completely backed in adhesive, not just on the top edge. This will make your notes stay together better.

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory KeepersEmoji Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

I trimmed my sticky note paper down to the size for the Emoji Punch Board, which is 1.5” square. Then I proceeded to punch out the smiley face version. I love that they are so many faces to be made, but this worked for today’s project best. Stacking 3 notes together worked well while punching, more pieces of paper than that was too thick. As I finished punching each stack, I layered them together. Seriously fun and easy. This would be a great way to get your kiddo involved in crafting as well!

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To create a tag for the sticky notes, I used the Tag Punch Board to layer two cardstock tags together. On each of the tags, I stamped the sentiment using the Precision Press Advanced. Arranging the stamps on the press made it so that the sentiment could be stamped precisely on each tag, and if a mistake was made, another tag could be created easily. Not that I would know anything about that…

Accents of patterned paper from the DCWV Sweet and Sassy pad were added for color and fun.

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To personalize each jar, I punched a strip of patterned paper with the Word Punch Board. Adding each teacher’s name like this was not only easy, but it will help my kiddo remember whom to bring the gifts to as well. It also puts a name to the face of the person he must look at if he eats all the candy.

Emoji Party Decor

Hi everybody! Soraya here today to share 5 fun tutorials on how to throw an Emoji Party using the amazing Emoji Punch Board that will allow you to create all the emojis you’ll want! Let’s make a colorful garland, decorate pretty straws, create cupcake toppers, treat bags and surprise cones! Here we go!

Emoji Party Decor by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

The Emoji Punch Board is really awesome. With a small paper square (1.5×1.5 inches) and 3 punches (or 4 depending on the face you want) you get a super fun emoji! It has never been so easy to create a smiling face! So before diving into the tutorials, you’ll need to prepare all squares to make the emojis. Here is a super tip for you: use the Square Punch Board and you’ll get all the squares very fast! I placed mine in little containers and punched about 130 various emojis.

Let’s start with the straws and the toppers. There is nothing easier: just use the USP Power Mini Glue Gun to place some emojis on them and then (for the toppers) add another circle behind for more fun!

For the suprise cones: use the DIY Party Board to create mini cones. Decorate them with twine, emojis and puffy stickers!

I also used the Word Punch Board to create mini “PARTY” labels that I adhered with my Mini Glue Gun. I just love how the words pop out of the cones!

For the treat bags, I used the Clear Cut Punch to create small tags then I attached them to the kraft bags before adding the emojis and the embellishments.

Emoji Shaker Pocket Card

Hello, We R friends! Enza here, and today I’m sharing a card created with the super fun Emoji Punch Board. Those little smiley faces are just too cute, and I love that I can create lots of different ones with one punch board. When I think of emojis, I usually picture happy ones, so I decided to go with a shaker card; confetti, sequins, and fun smiley faces are the perfect combination to brighten someone’s day.

Emoji Shaker Card by Enza Gudor for We R Memory Keepers

I started by creating several emojis using the Perforated Paper Pad, which contains perforated paper squares perfectly sized for the Emoji Punch Board. You have four different colors to choose from, and it really makes it easy and faster to cut your shapes. I backed each emoji with patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Pick-Me-Up collection, which is mostly the collection I used for this card. I like that you can see other colors coming through the negative spaces of the images.

Next, I used the Frame Punch Board to create the window of my card; I adhered scalloped borders that I fussy cut from patterned paper behind it, and a piece of clear acetate cut to size for the opening. I then filled up the window with the emojis, sequins, fussy-cut icons and sentiments from the collection I chose, as well as some sprinkles created with the Sprinkle Punch. I used foam adhesive to adhere the front panel to the card base.

I finished the card with a “Smile” sentiment created with the Happy Jig, and twine wrapped around the spine.

I love how this card turned out. It makes me happy to see all those smiley faces “shaking” around. What will you make with your Emoji Punch Board?

Emoji Letterboard Wall Decor

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva on the blog today showing you how to make a cute Letterboard sign using the new Emoji Punch Board.

Emoji Letterboard Wall Decor by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

 

 

One of the things I love most about this Punch Board is that you can create more than 19 emojis with just a few punches. The punch board is small and perfect to carry around for crops. Plus the punch board is really intuitive and you really don’t need the instruction booklet once you learn how the board works.

I used my Letterboard and some emoji faces to create a cute message for our living room.

To start this project cut some 1.5 inch x 1.5 inch papers with your Square Punch Board or use the perforated paper pad made exclusively for the Emoji Punch Board. This pad has 50 pages with nine 1.5 inch squares per pages. In total, 450 pieces in four different colors!

Square Punch Board + Emoji Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

 

Create the emojis following the instructions on the booklet or create some emojis yourself!

Like I told you, the board is really easy to use and with the perforated paper pad you get perfect results every time!

I wanted to decorate my emojis a bit so I added black and red cardstock to the back of my emojis.  Punch some 1 inch black circles with the punch board and use your Sticky Thumb glue to assemble your emojis.

I added a simple phrase with my Letterboard alphabets and glued the emojis with 3d dots.

This is how my Emoji Letterboard message looks on my gallery wall. I love that it is colorful and adds a pop of color to my wall! Plus it reminds me to smile all the time!

There is so much you can use your emojis for! How about a reward chart for your little ones? That would be super fun! How would you use your emojis?
