Markets and Gift Packs

This weekend saw me at two markets - the Luna Markets on the riverbank in Rockhampton and the annual Rotray Club Biloela Art and Craft Fair. It was a busy weekend but I had lots of fun. Thankyou to all the new people who stopped by and checked out my stall.

At Biloela
"Don't post online- put some real paper in the post" "Snail mail is so nice to receive"

Since it is leading up to Christmas I had lots of gift packs -for 3x3 cards, notecards and larger cards as well as plenty of art journals.

Paper pouches for a set of 4 3x3 notecards and envelopes 
cut at 6 x 10,
score at (portrait) 1 1/4 and 4 3/4 , Score at (landscape) 4 1/2 and 5 1/2
contrast binding strips 1 1/2" (or whatever scarps you have) score in half

Paper pouches for Notecard size
cut at 7 1/2 x 12,
score at (portrait) 1 3/4 and 5 3/4 , Score at (landscape) 5 1/2 and 6 1/2
Kraft flap cut 6 x 4, score at (landscape) 3 and 3 3/4 or 3 1/2 depending on how bulky the cards are.
secure with velcro dot.

On Rachel's photo tutorial she scores it at 1 7/8" and then folds this in, and then brings the other side in to meet the fold in the middle, and landscape she scores at 5/5/8" from each end.

I have made this design before  which you may remember from the CASEing the Catty Gift wrap and packaging entry #CTC40 

There is a link to a video tutorial on that page (click on the picture above) or there is a much older instruction at Stampyourartout 

thanks for looking,
