Family Heirloom Mixed Media Artist Trading Cards


For todays blogpost I have created some mini projects for you!

This is a PERFECT way to also use up your paper scraps as I hinted at in a previous post on the blog.
This time I have made some ATC cards ( artist trading cards ).

I was entering a corona cybercrop on Facebook and made Artist Trading Cards for the first time and I really enjoyed it! So I just wanted to do more and since I have so many gorgeous pieces of small papers left this was a perfect way to use them. I used the same technique with layering paper pieces as I did on my tip post earlier on the blog. I love the colors in the Family Heirloom collection and it feels like I can use it all the time. I don´t want to throw anything away really!

For the ATCs I also used this cute butterfly stamps that I colored in different colors to the cards. I wanted them to match but also just be a little bit different from each other. Used some of the glitter washi tape and it really makes them pop with a little bit of glitter on them. Last I also used some white gesso mixed with a little bit of water and just did some splashes over the card. I really LOVE having this splashes on my projects.

I used my old typewriter for the text on the cards.

If you haven´t tried making Artist Trading Cards this is the time for you to try it out I think, using up some of your smallest pieces of papers and stuff.

DIY Wallet Mini Book

Hello BoBunny Fans!

It's Denise here today, to share a cute wallet mini album, using the gorgeous Garden Grove collection.

This little album is so versatile that you can use it for gift cards and Birthdays or just pop it in your bag as a brag book. There are so many uses for this cutie!

Here's a look at the inside partitions. There are 3 partitions to hold tags and these were decorated with fussy cut bits, stickers and stamping.

Faux stitching was also used to give it that sewn look.

I wanted to leave lots of space for little notes, photos and journaling, so I also added a flip up folder on the last page.

The little tags also offer space for notes and photo's etc, but can be swopped out with a gift card and Birthday notes.

Mini Birthday Exploding Gift Box

Hello BoBunny friends!

It's Angela here to welcome you to the blog. Today, I would like to share with you a tiny cute project I made for my husband's birthday, a couple of weeks ago. It combines birthday card, mini album, gifts and the fun 'wow' effect of an exploding box. I made it with Count The Ways collection that I found perfect for the love theme of this little creation.

Opening the little box, the first you get is the surprise, of course. The box is stuffed with embellishments, tags and fringes on each of the flap and pocket. In the middle of the box there is enough space to hold a little object or a candy. Consider this for an extra surprise!


The box closed is a cube of 2 inches, without considering the embellishments on top. When it spreads, it measures 6 x 6 inches. In fact, I made it using the Count the Ways 6x8 paper pad. 


Inside, I decorated the center with a scalloped circle punch and the XO letter in pink glitter. On the flaps of the box, I adhered lots of stickers, chipboards and many 'I Love You' phrases that I fussy cut from paper Count The Ways I Love You. 


This paper contains the 'I Love You' phrase written in many fonts and colors and, if you are like me and love fussy cutting, it's perfect to decorate the mini.


Inside the flaps, I created small tags with colored backer twine, attached with a tiny attacher. On the tags, I placed some photo of 'us'. It's incredible how many different pieces can contain such a small project!


Not all the tags contain photos. Some of them hold the gifts for my hubby. The sticker sheet of Count The Ways collection have some cute tickets that were perfect for the occasion, especially during this quarantine time, where we are all at home with no possibility to go shopping.


Here is a close-up of the tags. They are a pretty cute gift, right?


On the lid of the box, I created a rosette with a heart and a crystal heart on top. Along the side of lid, I adhered a strip of paper with a lace effect. I made it using the beautiful heart lace that is in the stamp set of the collection. Last, I inserted a little Happy Birthday tag and voilà!
