Paper YoYo

I've really been wanting to try a paper yoyo, and now that we have the new Simply Scored Scoring Tool, this fun project was a breeze.  Just cut a 1" x12" strip of designer paper and score every 1/4".  Fold back and forth like a fan, joining the ends with Sticky Strip.  Work it into a circle and adhere.  It's that easy and the results are "wow"!  For this card, I kept it simple and let the paper yoyo take center stage.  Just Add Cake Designer Paper was the perfect choice!  Notice how the So Saffron designer paper in the background has numbers ending in 6?  My granddaughter's 6th birthday party is around the corner, and I thought this would be perfect for her.  The stem comes from Sweetheart stamp set and is stamped in Wild Wasabi Classic Ink.  The greeting is from A Word For You and is markered to use just part of the sentiment.  I punched a 1" circle of Poppy Parade card stock for the center, then added a So Saffron flower button with some White Baker's Twine through the middle, held on with a Mini Glue Dot.

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be highlighting projects using some of the wonderful new products in this year's Holiday Mini.

Here's a birthday card I designed specifically to show off the wonderful new Simply Scored Tool from Stampin' Up!  This fun and easy scoring tool is exclusive to Stampin' Up! and makes scoring a breeze.  I love that it comes with place markers so that I know for sure I'm scoring at the right points.  It's also great for doing multiples of one project since you can put in your markers and go quickly through all of your pieces of card stock.  You'll have the ability to score every 1/8" by using the stylus that comes with the Simply Scored Tool.

The envelope base card stock is Concord Crush and measures 4-1/2" x 12" and is scored at 5-1/2" and 11".  Fold at the 5-1/2" mark and use Sticky Strip to adhere the sides together.  The 1" flap creates the top of the envelope; I used the Scallop Edge Punch to decorate the edge and then placed Cheerful Treat Designer Paper mounted on a piece of card stock behind that flap so that the closure would extend lower on the front.  A Lucky Limeade Brad is a faux closure, and the front is further decorated with designer paper run through the Big Shot with the Fun Flowers Die and a Glimmer Brad for its center.  And don't you just love the yummy Luck Limeade 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon!

Behind the Lucky Limeade Brad is Velcro for a closure, and inside is the birthday message!

AND from now through September 7th, make a minimum purchase of $25 through my Online Store HERE and I'll send you the materials to make your very own copy of the birthday card pictured here!  I'll even punch and die cut the pieces you'll need!
