Valentine’s Mailbox Treat Holder with Color Washed 12×12 Paper Pad by PHP

Maria Russell CircleAre you looking for some last-minute gift ideas for Valentine’s Day?  Look no further.  Here’s an easy and fun Valentine’s Mailbox Treat Holder idea!   You can find these mailboxes at a craft store, or go to your local Target at the Dollar spot section.  I have altered my mailbox, using the beautiful Color Washed 12 x 12 Paper Pad by Paper House Productions.  You guys are all going to love this paper pad.  The pad comes with a sticker sheet that contains alphabet stickers, and other ephemeras.

I love making 3D projects for Valentine’s Day, especially making treat holders for my family and friends.  Valentine’s Day is always a special day at my house.  When my kids were a lot younger, I would surprise them by decorating the table with hearts, candles, confetti, and flowers!  I would also leave the little treat bags on top of their plates so that before they eat breakfast and go to school, they already have their treats with them.  It made their day.  It doesn’t matter how big or small the presents were but they were always happy to get a few treats to celebrate the day.  We also made treats for their friends!

Here are the photos of my finished project:

I have a process video for you today to show you how I altered this inexpensive mailbox that I found from Target.  It is super fast and easy, and it doesn’t require decoupaging.  I hope you like it.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Have a wonderful day!

Candy Dish Featuring The Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers

Katie King CircleHi everyone! Valentine’s Day is almost here which means you are probably seeing bags of candy every time you turn around. If you have a sweet tooth like me, then you may be tempted to buy one or three bags of candy (on sale of course). Now, if you happen to have some candy on hand, you may be looking for a cute way to display it during the holiday season. If this is you, then you will love today’s project!

In today’s project post, I am going to show you how to make a Candy Dish featuring the Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers! The cool thing about this project is that we are recycling an old candle jar to use as our candy dish. You may be wondering why I would use a candle jar and not a normal plastic or glass jar. Well, if you think about the past fall or winter season, you probably have several nice size candles laying around. I bet some of those candles were expensive, so why not give them new life as candy dishes.

The stickers I chose to use in this project was the Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers. I chose to use them in this project because 1) they look like the perfect conversation heart and 2) add great dimension to the candy dish, since they are puffy stickers!

Candy Dish featuring the Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers

To create your own Candy Dish featuring the Sweetheart Candies Puffy Sticker, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Clean out your candle jar. Now, depending on the size and the amount of wax in your candle jar will most likely affect how you remove the wax from your jar. For my candle jar, I let my candle sit in a warm place (to soften the wax) and then carefully removed the wax with a plastic knife. After the wax was removed, I then cleaned out the candle jar using soap, water, and Goo Gone (which is perfect for removing any waxy residue).

Step 2

Step 2: Once your candle jar has been cleaned out, its now time for the fun part, decorating!

Grab your Sweetheart Candies Puffy Stickers and begin playing around with how you want them to look on your candle jar. When applying your puffy stickers, think about all the different ways they could look on your candle jar. For example, you could apply the puffy stickers in a random pattern, you could just have them lining the bottom portion of the jar or apply them in rows.

As you can see in the photo above, I decided to cover my entire candle jar by applying the puffy stickers in small (vertical) rows of 4.

When you have added your stickers, and are happy with how your candle jar looks, you are now ready to fill it up with some delicious candy!

There is nothing better than a project that is super easy to make and is basically foolproof when recreating it! I think, besides making these candy dishes for yourself, they would make such cute gifts for your friends or co-workers.

One final thing I wanted to mention was the size of the candle jar. In the last photo, I wanted to show you how this project looked on a smaller scale and with different stickers. For that candy dish, I used the Flowers Micro Stickers and apply the stickers only to ¾ of the jar. This particular style, I think would be perfect if you are considering making these for your friends this Valentine’s Day season.

Hidden Souvenir Storage Featuring The Travel-France 2D Destinations Stickers

Katie King CircleHi everyone! Whether you are an avid traveler or only travel every so often, one thing is for sure, everybody loves collecting souvenirs. Now, we can probably all agree that souvenirs, though fun to collect and share, do take up a good amount of space. If you are someone who travels, all of those postcards and little replicas of monuments, can add up fairly quickly. So, to solve this storage dilemma I came up with a fun way to store your items while also displaying your travels.

In today’s project post, I am going to show you how to make some Hidden Souvenir Storage featuring the Travel-France 2D Destinations Stickers! If you are not familiar with the Destinations Stickers, they are basically a group of stickers that have a certain destinations theme. For example, today I will be showcasing the Travel-France 2D Stickers which features cathedrals, museums, and vineyards in the sticker packet. I will be using these stickers to decorate a paper mache box which can be used as hidden storage for your souvenirs items, while also acting as a decorative home décor piece.

Hidden Souvenir Storage Featuring The Travel-France 2D Destinations Stickers

To create your own Hidden Souvenir Storage, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Paint your paper mache box and set it aside to dry.

Step 2

Step 2: Cut a piece of scrapbooking paper from the Color Washed 12″ Paper Pad that is a bit smaller than the lid of your box. Once your piece of scrapbooking paper has been cut out, glue it down to the lid of your box.

Now, grab a mini clothespin and glue it down to the spot where you would like to display a photo or postcard from your trip. Then gather up your Travel-France 2D Stickers and begin playing around with how you want them to look on the lid of your box. When you are happy with the placement of the stickers, press them down firmly into place.

Step 3

Step 3: Take your lid and lay it flat on your work surface. You will want the back of the lid to be facing you, like in the photo. Then grab the body of your box and apply some strong adhesive to one of its sides. Then take the body of your box and press it into the lid.

Refer to the above photo to get a better idea of how it should look.

When your pieces are put together, you are now ready to fill up your box and add it to your bookshelf!

For my hidden storage box that is about France, you can see that I displayed a postcard from Paris on the front of the box and used the storage part in the back to hide some souvenirs/mini photo albums. I think this storage method is a great way to not only display photos from your trips but it helps to keep all your souvenirs (from one particular trip) in one place.

Gone Fishin’ Decor-The Great Outdoors

Laura Cox Circle PH 2018

 Hi everyone!  Laura here with you today, and so excited to share my first project for Paper House, a home decor wall hanging memory project using The Great Outdoors Fishing scrapbook paper collection kit!

Gone Fishin' Home Decor Laura C PHP2018

Scrapbooking is awesome and one of my favorite things to do, but home decor can be just as fun to create, and can still be used to capture and display your memories!  A great way to add pictures to a home decor project is to create a “pocket” for tucking in a photo by tearing the piece of paper, and layering it with a contrasting paper.  I used the wood grain paper with the fish hook paper behind it.  These gorgeous papers are all included in The Great Outdoors Fishing collection kit from Paper House.  There are  also great coordinating stickers in the kit–even the alphas are included!

These amazing I’d Rather Be Fishing 3D stickers have such cute details, like the actual fishing line on the pole, and the 3D realistic looking fish!   Fun to layer up with The Great Outdoors papers too, a lot of great designs you can use for fishing, camping, scouts….so many options!

Gone Fishin' Close up #2

I’m a huge fan of the journal boxes in this kit too….they are perfect for scrapbooking those “fish stories” and also for putting the finishing touches on this home decor project.  My guys can see this hanging on the wall and always reminisce about that fishing trip, and the memories of “one that got away”!

Gone Fishin' Close up #1

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you are inspired to try a new way to capture those memories by creating some home decor!  The collection kits from Paper House make it so easy to do, I hope you give it a try!

Shadow Box House featuring the Marbleous Paper Pad

Katie King CircleHi everyone! My name is Katie King and I am one of the newest members of the Paper House Productions Design Team! To explain a little bit more about myself, I am a DIY blogger, who believes that crafting should be simple, fun and unique. The name of my blog is Running with a Glue Gun and the types of crafts/DIYs that I tend to make on my blog are home décor.

Since this is my first project for Paper House Productions, I thought it would be fun to show you how to decorate a shadow box house in only 3 steps! In this project, I am using the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad and Life Organized Embrace Today Puffy Stickers. This may seem like an odd combination, but the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad contains 48 sheets of gorgeous marbled paper and the Embrace Today Puffy Stickers are the perfect size for the individual sections of a shadow box.

Shadow Box House featuring the Marbleous 12 Paper Pad

To create your own shadow box house, you would do the following:

Step 1

Step 1: Paint your wooden shadow box white and set it aside to dry.

Step 2

Step 2: Measure the inside sections of your shadow box. Then grab your Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad and cut pieces of scrapbooking paper that fit those measurements. For my shadow box, I used 2 different pieces of scrapbooking paper from the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad. The first piece of scrapbooking paper had four different marble patterns on it and the second piece had a collage of different phrases.

Once you have cut your pieces of paper out, begin decorating each piece using your Embrace Today Puffy Stickers. Now, these stickers were originally designed for planners, but they are the perfect size for the inside of a shadow box. Also, since they were originally designed for planners, the arrows and little phrases help to make your items (in the shadow box) stand out even more.

Step 3

Step 3: When all your paper pieces have been decorated, use your favorite adhesive to glue each paper piece into each section of the shadow box.

After all of the paper pieces have dried, you are now ready to fill up your shadow box and display it!

By painting the house white and using the brighter colors of the Marbleous 12″ Paper Pad, it really helps to make your items in the shadow box stand out. Also, the Embrace Today Puffy Stickers help to ”frame” your items and add a bit more detail to each section. For example, I like the look of the ”love” sticker above my miniature dog figurine.

Scrap lifting from our Pinterest boards!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! This week, the Design Team  we are scraplifting a project from the Paper House Productions Pinterest board, and I chose this one from fellow team member Tinagale Husong! 🙂  I love altering things, so when I saw this from Tinagale, I was inspired to make one for my Christmas Decor using the ‘Christmas Joy’ collection!

 

25
I started by painting my embroidery hoop a deep green to match my theme. Once that was dry, I cut ‘Christmas Joy’ paper and acetate paper to fit the back of my hoop!  I also took the ‘ornament’ packaging from the Christmas Flake Stickers and used it as an embellishment on here!

And here is Tinagale’s embroidery hoop that I scrap lifted!

Christmas Joy Photo Flip Frame

Hello everyone, TinaGale here for my very last project. I’ve so enjoyed being a part of the Paper House team and creating with all the fabulous products. Today I used up some of the last of my Christmas Joy stash to create a little flip album from a frame I picked up at IKEA. It’s going to sit on my desk and I’ll add more photos as the year goes by and update the photos.

PH22

Supplies used: Scrapbook paper – Christmas Memories, Gold Dots, Birch acetate,  Puffy stickers, 3D stickers, enamel stickers,

Photo Frame process video – Christmas Joy Flip album (Paper House)

I used the acetate paper and left it loose against the wood grain paper to create my background. The gold dot paper matted my photo and then I used the red from the other side to create a double mat. Some embellishments and it was perfect.

I hope you enjoyed my little home decor piece and will try creating something like it too for yourself. I pray your family has a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

Christmas Joy Banner

Hello everyone, TinaGale here. For my project today I wanted to do something festive and fun for my office. I love having photos of my family around so this little banner will be a perfect touch. The Christmas Joy collection is one of my favorites and this turned out better than I could even anticipate with all the gold sparkles. PH 1222

Supplies used:

Christmas Joy tags, Christmas Memories, cardstock stickers, planner stickers, puffy stickers, epoxy stickers, rice paper

You can watch the whole process in this video:

This would have been gorgeous even without all the embellishments but oh my I had fun decking it all out with all the different stickers and embellishments from this collection. I used some candy cane stripe twine from my stash to string it all together.

IMG_E1185

I can’t wait to hang it up in my office. It’s sure to brighten my days up while I’m working. I hope you enjoyed my little project and have been inspired to create something to decorate your space with.

Christmas Decor DIY with Paper Pads

Shannon Circle2Have you ever heard the phrase, sometimes less is more? Today, I am showing you an easy way to add a lot of impact with just a few (7 to be exact) feathers from the incredibly versatile Project Pads offered at Paper House…these Project Pads can be used for a multitude of projects.

I used the Feathers Project Pad for the altered frame you see below.  Yes, that’s it. That’s all I needed to create the effect needed, which was golden, feathery, white and gentle.

I bought a bare frame and painted it as shown.

Next, I actually covered the glass pane that came with the frame with chalkboard paint. I then got to work hand lettering the fitting lyrics, and then went over them with white glitter glue so there was a bit of magic. Adding two tacks (eyeball this) in each corner, created the perfect placement for the feathers. I  used a hole punch to punch holes in each feather, going for different lengths  and sizes.  Green twine was the perfect touch as the feathers were strung “on the line”.   After the twine was pulled taught and  wrapped around the tacks, I added a bow and bell for each corner.   A little  glitter added here and there, and  we can call the project  finished !  Thanks for letting me share with  you!

PHP FEATHERS Project, 11-2017, Shannon M.

I wanted  you to see a close up of those gold foil feathers because they are really, really perfect for the holidays as a perfect punch of holiday shine.  Just take a look!!

PHP FEATHER SHOT, 11-2017, Shannon M.

 I hope I could inspire you to create something for others or yourself in preparation of the upcoming holidays! Have a great day!
