How To Make 3 Cool Cards Using The Dovecraft Monochrome Goody Bag!

Helllooooo!

I have three projects to share today using one of the new 'Goody Bags' from Trimcraft. There are several to choose from and today my projects are from the Monochrome Goody Bag. There are instructions below each image.

Each pack has a selection of 6x6" and 8x8" patterned papers, 6 sturdy coloured 6x6" card blanks with envelopes, sentiments, buttons, flowers and gems, as well as a project sheet to get you started. They're perfect if you're no good at choosing co-ordinating supplies, if you need stash in a particular colour (like I needed some purple things last year so I bought a purple 'goody bag' - this was before I was a Trimmie!). They'd also make a great gift for someone who is just getting into cardmaking or scrapbooking. There are so many possibilities with these goody bags as I am about to show you.


1.       Cut a 14cm square from patterned paper and mount onto black cardstock and cut out, leaving a small border
2.       Position a star die in the centre and die cut.
3.       Cut two pieces of acetate just larger than the aperture, stick the edges together, leaving a gap.
4.       Fill the gap with sequins and then seal.
5.       Stick the pocket behind the aperture and then stick the whole thing to a 6x6” card blank.
6.       Die cut smaller stars from vellum, and ‘happy birthday’ from black cardstock and attach to the card.
7.       Finish with a die cut pennant and spatters of black and gold ink.


 1.       Cut a 14.5cm square from patterned paper. Ink the edges with black ink and then stick to a 6x6” card blank.
2.       Cut a 14cm square from a different sheet. Ink the edges with black ink and then stick to the larger square.
3.       Cut four 6.5, four 6 and four 5.5cm squares from patterned paper. Ink the edges and then stick a small, medium and large square together.
4.       Arrange the four layered squares onto the card and stick down.
5.       Draw around the acetate backing of the large ‘with love’ stamp onto vellum and cut out.
6.       Stamp the ‘with love’ stamp onto the vellum and mount onto patterned paper. Cut out, leaving a small border.
7.       Layer up paper flowers, stick a brad through the centre and through the ‘with love’ piece.
8.       Stick the whole thing to the card. 

1.       Cut a 14.5cm square from patterned paper and stick to a 6x6” card blank.
2.       Cut a 6.5cm square from patterned paper and mount onto black cardstock and cut out, leaving a thin border.
3.       Cut a length of silver thread and loop and stick in the centre of the square.
4.       Die cut two flourishes from black cardstock
5.       Die cut a dragonfly in black and silver and stick the silver on top of the black. Stick on top of the looped thread along with the black flourishes.
6.       Cut two 1.5cm wide strips of patterned paper, invert an end of both, stick to the centre of the card and trim off the ends.
7.       Stick the decorated small square to the centre right of the card.

8.       Finish with a sentiment, buttons and splatters of black ink.

I hope you've been inspired by my cards - I had a fun day making them whilst watching the Formula One!
Thanks for visiting!
