OCT. 27- GIFT CARD HOLDER by Vickie
OCT. 29- A BABY GARLAND by Sandy

Let's get started !!

Hi everyone, I have a fun and easy Paper Garland tutorial for you today for the 
MFP Stamp Shop Blog Hop.

Baby Garland
 By Sandy Hentzel

Items needed:
MFPStamp Set
Momento Black Ink
Circle Punch
Coloring medium for images
(I used Prismacolor Pencils)
Glue
String/Ribbon/Cording/Twine
Plain Gift Bag


Step 1
Punch out your circles.
You will need to double them so if you are doing a banner
with 3 decorative circles,
then you will need 6 punched out.

Step 2
Stamp your images and Color. My preference is Momento Ink and Pencils,
but this is totally up to you on how you
want to decorate your garland circles


Step 3
Cut off a piece of the ribbon or cord that you are going to use.
 I used this Paper Cord that I received from MFPS.
You want at least 12 inches to play with.

Step 4
Line up your circles. Blank ones can go at the bottom.
Lay your cord over top.

Step 5
Place the glue in center of the bottom circle
and then place the decorated one on top.


Optional:
I punched out 5 scalloped ovals to place behind the circles
 to add more decorative interest.


Step 6
Poke a hole through the top corners of the gift bag
 (bag purchased at dollar store)
using a paper piercer, hook or hole punch

Step 7
Look cording through the wholes and knot. Then cut off the extra.
This can be as long or as short as you want.

Final Bag!!! There you go, all done
and you totally personalized your bag to fit the shower theme.


Best part is this garland can be for any holiday or event. And you can even make it vertical to a make a decorative hanging like I did these snow flakes for my daughter's Frozen Party.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial on a very easy project.

In The Mine 12x12 Process Video // Multi Photo

Hello everyone, welcome back! My name is Katelyn and I am sharing with you some tips on how to make poorly printed photos work for you. I have a whole process video explaining all of the details as well, so be sure to check that out. This layout includes three photos that are very, very similar. Which helps tell the story. I hope you enjoy!

Some times we get photos from our home printers or from third party printing sites that didn't come out the way we anticipated. The photo in my example was not processed correctly on the right hand side which you can see in the beginning of the video. However, I figured that instead of requesting a new one and jumping through hoops that I could make it work. Please enjoy the process video below.

I created two cluster groups to help balance the page. One is over the poorly printed part of the photo and the other is on the opposite side. Balancing your page is key for an aesthetically pleasing layout! All of the products used in this project are…
