Tombow Guest DT

Good morning everyone....

For my second project for

I have created an
Easel Card Note Card
and Tag Set

The easel card is one of may favorite folds
It is so versatile....I have used it for cards,
photo album cards and gift box card combos

The box measures 4.75" x 4.75". I have changed
the dimensions from a box by Holly McMillen @SCS

To start I made the box. I wanted it to be strong
so I made it from cream CS and then covered
it with DP. The easel card base is 4.5" x 8".
On the long side score at 2" and 4". The card back
is 4.5" x 4.5". I adhered the card back to the card
base on the 2" fold with Tombow Permanent
adhesive stamp runner. All the DP is adhered with
Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid glue using the brush end.
The tag holder measures 3 3/8" x 2 7/8".
I used my Inkssentials white gel pen to add the dots.
I adhered the tag holder box to the card
with Tombow Mono Adhesive Power Bond
tape runner.

I cut 2 slits into the finished oval pen holder
(which is also the stopper to hole the easel up)
adding a decorated 1/2" strip of cardstock
through the holes and folding the ends onto the
backside of the oval. I put the pen into the strip and
pulled the ends so that it was a perfect fit for the pen.
I then adhered it with Tombow Power Bond tape
runner adding a Tombow foam tab over these
ends for extra security. The scallop oval pen
holder, butterfly and flower are adhered with
Tombow foam tabs. I used Tombow Mono
adhesive liquid glue to adhere the easel card
to the box.

All the fabulous images are from
High Hopes Stamps

Ruffle Posey Button H-250
Daisy Button H-248
DH Double Daisy- J108
Round Posey Button- H249
Valentine Butterfly front- G296
Valentine Butterfly side-G297
Paisley Butterfly- H242

Note cards:

The note cards are 4.25" x 4.25".
I used a CB folder to emboss each card and the
first layer of the Nesties oval frame
The layers and flowers are adhered with Tombow
Foam Tabs and the bows are adhered with
Tombow Power tabs.

The tags measure 4.75" x 2.5"
I used Tombow Mono adhesive power
bond tape runner to adhere the ribbon to the tag
front center and the adhered the finished ovals
over the ribbon onto the front of the tag
with Tombow Foam Tabs.

The great thing about the easel card is
that it folds flat. The pen stops it from folding
perfectly flat but makes it easy to wrap
or store.

*Just a note to tell you about the adorable pen.
It is really a full size pen but the burgandy part
slides up the silver part of the pen so you can
shorten it...telescopic. Perfect for a project like this.
I found it at our local Staple Business depot
here in Canada!!

Have a fabulous day
Thanks so much for stopping by....
