Posted by Scrapthology, 06 Feb, 2015
Looking for a gift? Here's some quick, practical and cute ideas. A Magnet, key ring, notebook and post-it holder, give one or the whole set for a real feline gift frenzy.
Key ring and Magnet 1. Flatten two bottle caps (used or craft caps) - On a hard solid surface lay the caps with insides facing up, tap repeatedly around the edges until the cap flattens. 2. Cut or punch your chosen design. If using a paper design back with a piece of card before adhering to the inside of the caps with a dab of glue. 3. Fill the cap with 3d gloss and leave to dry overnight. For the key ring, punch a hole in the top of the cap and attach to a key ring fob. 4. For the magnet, glue a magnet to the back of the cap. A set of different magnets would be great presented in a decorated box. Notebook 1. Mat the notebook front, rounding the corners of the mat if preferred. 2.Assemble the decoupage element using 3d foam pads between layers. 3. Die-cut a scalloped circle large enough to leave a small border around your decoupage element. Adhere the decoupage to the die cut and then glue the whole assembly to the front of your notebook, making sure to leave room at the lower edge if there is an elastic closure as on mine. Post-it Holder 1. Trim a piece of card to 8 1/2" x 4". 2. Score down from the long edge at 2", 2 ½“, 6" and 6 ½” which leaves a 2" flap. Fold at score lines and unfold. 3. Trim a piece of patterned paper to 8 ¼” x 3 ¾” and adhere centrally to the card stock. Fold at the score lines. 4. Assemble the large oval decoupage element using 3d foam pads to separate the layers. 5. Attach the post-it pad to the inside centre of your cover. 6. Apply glue to the middle of a large button and adhere to the centre lower edge of the bottom outside flap. 7. Once the button is dry, fold over the top flap and glue the decoupage element to the top flap only, ensuring the lower edge of the element slides under the upper edge of the button. This provides the closure. A quick, simple and pretty set of gifts that are sure to please.
