This is a teeny tiny, very cute little paper bag which could hold dainty jewellery, a few sweeties or small pieces of make up such as a single eye shadow.

Welcome to my 3x6 Series! Every day this week all the way through to next Monday, I'll be bringing you a tiny project using a piece of designer series paper measuring 3x6 inches. You can slice up a piece of 12x12 DSP into eight pieces of 3x6, so I am bringing you eight tutorials. I've recently changed my upload and blog post times to 11:30am, so be sure to check back daily for new tutorials!

This is a very cool tutorial on how to make a milk carton with a lid that comes off at the belly band! It was inspired by a standard milk carton box I had made a while back. I had used some extra DSP to create a band around the milk carton and thought to myself, this would be quite nice if it actually opened from the middle. So here it is :)

I love letter writing, I think it's a real shame that people no longer hand write letters to each other. Thank you notes or party invitations are sent via email these days, and short notes can be sent via text or WhatsApp, but I love a hand written note. There's something incredibly personal about receiving something in the mail that has someone's hand writing on it.
I have pen pals around the world whom I write to often, so instead of buying dozens of sets of letter writing paper, I decided I would make my own using Stampin' Up stamps. I think the results are beautiful and unique, and really allows my personality to come though and lend itself to that personal touch I really love.

Here is a very practical way to attach a ribbon with a bow to a box, without the recipient struggling to get it off or put it back on. The one on the left is actually the prototype for my wedding favours!

I share my tip on how you can get your clear mount stamps to cling to your clear blocks, without removing the pretty sticker. Such a simple technique and it works for all my stamps. Just be sure not to apply the glue to the edge of the stamps to avoid the sticker ripping off as you take the stamp off the clear block!

I love crystals. They all have their own individual energies and properties and used in the right way can help us gain confidence, get through tough times, and even alleviate aches and pains. As a Pagan, I'm a fan of gifting crystals to my friends, both Pagans and non Pagans, who often appreciate the beautiful colours, even if they are not sure what they do. This is a cute way of gift wrapping them, and I show you two different sizes.

To make up for not replying to my pen pals sooner, I decided to make them some cute little bags to hold a few mini eggs this Easter/Ostara. These bags are super simple and easy to make, and there are so many ways you could decorate and embellish them. Here's my tutorial:

I'm a sucker for anything tropical or nautical, so my two decorative label punch-out boxes show the best of both of my loves. The nautical one is the one in the tutorial, I hope you guys like it as much as I do!
