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…

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.

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.)

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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

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!

Guest Designer Ida Rosberg

Hello We R fans, and happy Friday! We hope our U.S. friends had a great Thanksgiving holiday yesterday, and that you all enjoy your weekend. Today we’re thrilled to have guest designer Ida Rosberg join us with an adorable mini album she made with the High Five collection and the Photo Sleeve Fuse!


I’m so excited to be a guest designer on the blog and I will share a mini album I created using the High Five collection and the fantastic Fuse tool! The High Five collection was a perfect match to my photos from a trip me and my daughter made this summer. It was a typical Swedish summer… cold and rainy!


The album is a mix between regular pages and pocket pages. Here is one example of a regular page. I just love the mix of the yellow and the blue.



I made a lot of different pocket pages for my mini. Some for just one 4*6 inch photo and some for two photos. I also added some flip pockets to add interest! The tabs on the side of the pockets to show where there is more to see!

The holes are punched with the crop-a-dile. Easy peasy!

My name Ida Rosberg and I’m from Sweden. I live outside of Stockholm with my husband, dog and three year old daughter. For as long as I can remember I have been crafting and about ten years ago I started to make cards for Christmas and birthdays. Then I found scrapbooking and loved it. I started with a few albums… but wanted more photos per page. Project life was perfect! Today I mix project life with traditional layouts. The main reason I like scrapbooking is because it calms me down and makes me peaceful. It makes me focus and forget about everything around me… Another big reason is because it focuses on the positive sides of life! I often scrap happy moments and photos of people I love… and also, it’s great to have so many memories documented!


Favorite We R Product:

The fuse tool (of course)!


Favorite Paper-crafting tip:

Take time to look back at your old albums and layouts (or cards)! The thing about documenting your memories is to help you remember. And layouts you weren’t happy about when you made them often looks better some months (years) later. It can also be good to show someone else, family or friend. Family and friends are often less critical than you are about your work!

Thankful Frame Decor

Hello We R fans and welcome back to the blog today!

I don’t know about you, but for me, this time of the year tends to bring with it a sense of review and taking stock of what has unfolded over the course of the last eleven months. As we head straight towards a busy holiday period, it’s good to take a minute to remind ourselves how very blessed we are!


I’ve created a bit of a twist on a banner, in that I have hung the banner inside an empty frame. On it, I have hung various tags which each contain an uplifting quote or something we, as a family, are grateful for – a great little pick-me-up at any time of day. I’ve hung it right by our front door so we can all see and make use of it.


The picture frame is just an inexpensive one I bought. I removed the glass and board inside so that I was just left with the wooden frame. Using some covered wire, I strung the wire in a zig-zag fashion down the length of the frame. Note: The little bendy metal bits at the back of the frame that usually hold down the glass etc, were perfect for holding the wire down!


Each little tag is slightly different. I created the basic shapes using my DIY Party Tag Punch. Do yourself a favour and add this punch to your stash!! For this project I used 1 and 2 inch wide tags. Note: I’ve used the High Five 6×6 pad for the tags – the reason being that the pages are only printed with a pattern on one side, which was perfect for my quote idea.

These particular tags have some feather embellishments. They are paper die cut shapes which I created using my Evolution Advanced and some more of the High Five 6×6 sheets. TIP: A bit of machine stitching will bring leaves and feathers to life.


This awesome wood grain paper print shows off a little layered stamping perfectly. I used my Rose Layered Stamp and Mini Stamp Pads with the Precision Press and just love the way the stamping worked out.



Using the new Layered Stamps is so easy, thanks to the guide, which is included in the set. Below you can see how I lined up my guide to stamp on my tag. Press down the lid part of the Precision Press grabs the stamp to keep in place. The layered sets each have a couple of stamps, numbered, so you know in what order to stamp. Simply change out the number inside the frame which is already in place so all your stamps line up perfectly!



This tag has a few little leafy details…


A great tip for more precise placement or if you want to use up leftover bits, is to use the Magnetic Mat in your Evolution Advanced. It keeps your dies in place so you can make use of all available space on the paper and the dies don’t slide around on the mat.


Feathery dies and small details in the form of High Five stickers…


This tag has some gold heat embossing detail as well as a few other bits and bobs. I’ve used the Banner Layered stamp and only stamped around half the image.



Once all my tags were ready it was time to have some fun… I searched for some classic thankful quotes on the net and combined them with some thoughts on my own special family members.



In between the tags are some very small details. A wing (to remember we are protected), a clock (time goes fast – make the most of it) and a compass (for the journey).


My DS reaching for a bit of inspiration!



You could adapt this idea to suit a season or a special birthday or anniversary gift!


Thanks so much for joining me today!

Blessed Wall Hanging

Good morning We R readers, Laura here to share a thankful project with you. This time of year is my absolute favorite. Starting in October there are so many reasons to get together with friends and family to celebrate. Several years ago, around Thanksgiving, we started a tradition in my family to say what we are thankful for every night at dinner throughout the entire year.


I thought it would be nice to record some of those things we are grateful for, so I created a blessed wall hanging. To start with I used the High Five paper collection and cut strips of patterned paper that were two inches wide.


Using the banner punch board I created a flag shape on one end of the paper. Then, I trimmed the overall length to six inches. Using the blue horizontal line as a guide at the top of the punch board, I cut a flag shape on the opposite end.


I folded the banner shape in half and repeated these steps for all seven papers.


Next, I used the same process to trim white cardstock to fit inside each patterned paper banner shape. This time I cut the strips of cardstock to 1.5 inches and the overall length to 5.5 inches. Then, I used navy textured cardstock from the DIY Party cardstock pad to create a background banner shape for each flag. To assemble, I used my sticky thumb adhesive to attach the white cardstock inside the patterned paper.


Then, I adhered the patterned paper to the navy background.


I added the letters ‘BLESSED’ onto the banners with gold glitter foam Thickers.


I attached each banner shape to a strip of green grosgrain ribbon using red tape.


I cut the ribbon using the new ribbon cutter tool.


At the top of the ribbon I folded a little bit over and attached a gold eyelet using the Crop-A-Dile tool. This makes it really easy to hang on the wall.


Inside we can each write something we are thankful for and it will be a great memory for all of us for years to come.

File Folder Mini Album

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with a mini album. I love mini albums because not only are they quick to make, but they are perfect for having around the house for friends and family to look at. It’s wonderful to look back at good memories and remember adventures! I used the We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board and the Trim & Score Board to create an album about our family’s summer wilderness adventures in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota. Because it is an annual tradition, I know that I will keep adding pages each year. Check out how to create an expandable file folder mini album!


The 1-2-3 Punch Board can create so many projects and making file folders is a great one! I created file folders that started with 6” x 12” cardstock.


You can make your folders any size with the easy directions in the booklet included with the 1-2-3 Punch Board.


Four folders were made, one for each of the past few years. Stickers from the High Five Line fit perfectly and allowed each folder to represent a year.








The pages inside the album were all embellished using paper, stickers, and tags from the High Five line. The collection is perfect for this theme and for my adventurous little man! Wallet-sized photos were used in this album. We picked out a few of our favorites for each year. I cannot wait to sit down with the little man and add more journaling with his memories!


And now for the expandable part. Can you believe it takes a piece of paper? I took a piece of patterned paper from the High Five 6×6 Pad and scored in with the Trim & Score Board. It was scored every ½.”


The paper was then folded into mountains and valleys, as shown in the photo. Strong adhesive was placed along the insides and then a file folder was placed inside each valley. Doing this secures the file folder in place, and still allows it to be opened.


The album has two more spaces for file folders at the end. And if I need to add more pages yet, I will adhere another scored piece of patterned paper to the end and continue the pattern. How cool and easy is that?!

What mini album are you going to create next?

Photo Sleeve Fuse Layout

Create shakers, ephemera pockets or make a waterfall of photos with the Fuse Tool and an assortment of Fuse Keepsake Pockets.  For today’s project, I’ve made a 12X12 layout with a splash of sparkly patchwork pockets!


I started with the awesome new “High Five” Collection and the “White Wash” paper for the base.  Next, I added a 8X12 piece of the “Bullseye” paper to the center.


For the shaker pockets, I used the 2X2 fuse pockets and lined the inside with a smaller swatch of paper from the 6X6 Paper Pad.  A small handful of sequins were poured end.


After allowing the Fuse tool to heat (with the rotary tip in place), it was placed alongside the Fuse Ruler and using an even amount of pressure, the open edge was sealed.  Simply trim away the excess plastic.  Be sure to use firm, steady pressure when using the tool.


A high tack adhesive was used to attach the pockets to the layout.


I used various components from the “High Five” Collection to complete the embellishments: Ephemera Die-Cuts, Plastic Buttons and Cardstock Stickers.


I used small ephemera pieces layered with cardstock hearts to hide the overlapped edges of the pockets.


I love the small touch of bling that I was able to add to this clean-and-simple layout!

Planner Pocket Pages

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here! Are you a planner person? I love keeping track of the day-to-day in my Heidi Swapp Memory Planner. I especially love using my We R Memory Keepers Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool to create custom pocket pages for my planner, and this past month I also used We R Memory Keeper’s High Five collection to dress it all up.


To make the pocket page, I started with a 12×12 page protector that I had accidentally bent. I was able to cut off the unusable part and turn the rest into a custom pocket page.


I printed a few small photos that I wanted to highlight. I adhered two back to back, and adhered another back to back with patterned paper from the High Five collection. I used the Typeset typewriter and a Typeset label sticker to write some journaling, then accented the label with a High Five puffy sticker. Next, I used the Fuse tool to secure the photos in pockets.


I like to add unexpected things to my pocket pages, so this month I added a leaf that I found on the way to the mailbox one day. I love the coppery red-orange color. I Fused the leaf into a pocket with black sequins and High Five leaf die cuts. Last, I added a piece of High Five flair to one side of the pocket page.


I also added a tag to the outside of the pocket page with a mini stapler (“so rad”), as well as more puffy stickers. Not all the embellishments need to be inside the pockets.


I’ve made several of these planner pocket pages now and I must say, they are my favorite part of my planner! Practice makes perfect with the Fuse tool, so go – play – and have fun making some custom pocket pages for your planner!

Shaker Bookmarks


Happy Monday morning friends, and Happy Halloween! We hope your evening is filled with lots of yummy treats, and not so many tricks. This week we’re featuring projects made with one of our most popular tools, the Photo Sleeve Fuse. and we’re starting off with some fun Shaker Bookmarks.


Hello, Aly Dosdall here again with some fun bookmarks I made using the Photo Sleeve Fuse. I love the creative possibilities that my Fuse allows–it’s one of my favorites tools. It’s so versatile and easy to use.


I’ve got a first grader who has discovered the joy of reading. She’s finally gotten into some short chapter books, and so I thought I’d make her a set of bookmarks to hopefully feed her newfound passion.


Though my daughter loves to read, she has a hard time sitting still since she has ADHD and anxiety disorder, so I wanted to add something tactile and interactive as well to help calm her as she reads. Photo Sleeve Fuse to the rescue!


I used my Fuse to make the bookmarks into shaker pockets and filled them with clear glass microbeads, gold sequins, and tiny wood veneer stars. The glass microbeads make a cool rain-like noise and are fun to watch when you move the bookmarks around. Perfect for nervous wiggly hands!


I started by cutting some patterned paper from the High Five collection into 2×6 inch strips. I embellished them with some High Five Stickers and Ephemera, and then added some phrases that I typed with my Typecast Typewriter onto Typecast Mini Labels.


Then I used a leftover divided photo sleeve to create the shaker pockets, cutting apart the 4×6 and 6×6 sections of the sleeve. You could also use 4×6 waterfall sleeves to create the shaker pockets for the bookmarks.  I found it easiest to Fuse around three sides, leaving the top end open so I could add my shaker elements before fusing the top shut. It also helps to fuse the shaker pocket snugly around the bookmark so that it can’t move around much. That way your shaker elements will stay in front of the bookmark and not slip around behind.


To finish off my bookmarks, I added some black ribbon at the top. I used the new Ribbon Cutter to trim and seal the ends of the ribbon, and then I attached the ribbon to the bookmarks with my Staple Board. I stapled the ribbon strips 3 times, using the staples not only in a functional way but also as a design element.



I’m excited for my daughter to try out these shaker bookmarks. I look forward to reading lots of books together!

High Five Card Set

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a couple cards using the new collection, High Five. Oh, this collection is fantastic! It’s a beautiful color palette that will work for feminine and masculine projects! Having a little boy, it’s tough to find products that will work for him, but check out each of these cards and see how I was able to make a card for him, and make another one that lets my girly side show through as well!


This collection has so many wonderful bits and pieces, I had a hard time narrowing down what to put on my card! I started with the floral patterned paper from the 6×6 paper pad. Yes, my fellow card makers, there is a 6×6 paper pad with scaled-down patterns! The bold black and white stripe paper was a super anchor for the bottom of the card.


Then I began to layer fun pieces. The frames, arrow label, banner tag, and sentiment are from the High Five Ephemera pack. For finishing touches, I added the love Plastic Button and a heart sticker from the Accent Sticker sheet.


And now my masculine card. Once again, I used papers from the 6×6 Paper Pad. One of the cool parts of the paper pad is the journaling card paper was scaled down. I was able to cut out the smaller yellow journaling card which fit perfectly! That card influenced my mountain paper choice. The bow ties were just too adorable to resist for my little man!


More bits and pieces were added to this card, that cool triangle frame from the Ephemera Pack and a few stickers from the Accent Sheet. To add depth to this card, I used several stickers from the Puffy Sticker sheet. The triangle elements are so trendy and fun! I cannot wait to slip this card into my son’s backpack!


Which side of this collection are you leaning towards? The feminine? The masculine? Or both?

High Five DIY Game

Hello again We R fans! I’m so glad you could join me today, as I share a boredom-busting idea the whole family can enjoy. My kiddos loved playing my little ‘Adventure Time’ game, which I created for them during the recent school holidays using the awesome High Five collection.


The gameplay is based on an existing game my daughter already has, but it’s so girly, I thought a more gender neutral approach would entice my son to join in the fun too. Let’s see how it all came together…


The base is a simple 12×12 sheet of Cinch chipboard. I have run some light blue tape along the edges and then mounted a sheet of High Five ‘Brave’ over the top. I covered the underside of my board with some plain black cardstock to give it a finished look.

For my title, I used the word ‘adventure’ from a pack of Wildflower Gold Foil Stickers. I will admit that I have been admiring these stickers for quite some time, hoarding them for a special project. The size and wording of this sticker however, was too perfect not to use this time though! I’ve paired it wish some High Five chipboard alphas. I really like the distressed look of these. TIP: For longevity, it’s always a good idea to apply extra adhesive to chipboard stickers to ensure they don’t fall off over time.


The concept of the game is very simple: spin the spinner then move ahead the number of circles as shown on the spinner. If you land on a silver circle, you stay put. If you land on a whale, you choose a disc and potentially move forward. Land on a cheeky raccoon and you move backwards.


Here’s a closer look at my spinner…

I put it together as shown below. I cut a circle out of a sheet of Cinch Chipboard then covered it with pattern paper and embellished it with some stamping, stickers and mist, before finally roughing it up a bit with some sandpaper.


The discs (which partially determine your fate in the game) coordinate with the player’s counters.


These started off as some pre-cut chipboard shapes I had in my stash, which I have covered with some patterned paper from my High Five 6×6 pad. (Nine counters fit on one sheet of paper.) I then cut these out carefully by hand. (If I had a larger circle punch it would’ve saved a bit of time.)



The counters are High Five Plastic Buttons which, have had their double sided tape removed. I’ve chosen some phrases that coordinate with phrases found on a sheet of aptly named High Five ‘Flair’ so I could create the tokens. During game play, if you pick up a token that matches your counter, you move forward two places. The Flair patterned paper was perfect as it has a few repeats in the design, which allowed me to create more than one token with the same phrase on it.


Some DIY Party Silver Foil Stickers mark out the route to adventure!


You might come across this cheeky fellow…


… or have to cross the treacherous mountain pass.


However you choose to play, one thing’s for sure and that is that you will have fun! A bit of imagination and a few dollars and you’ve got yourself a great activity to do with the kids or even a unique gift for someone.


Happy playtime!
