Simple and Easy Exploding Card

Hi everyone,
It's Angela here with a brand new card tutorial. Today I explain you how to make an exploding card. Are you ready? So, let's get started!
Starting with a square piece of paper, there are a few folds you have to make, the first is to fold the two diagonals,

like in the photos.

Third, fold in the middle, but on the other side of the paper.

Fold the crease made now on the opposite side, creating a triangle shape

Fold towards the middle the two extremities of the triangle

and fold the creases towards the inside.

Make the same with the triangle on the opposite side

You will end up with a final shape like this

The following step is not necessary, but I liked to cut a circle in the inside of the card.

Last, I glued  the folded card in the inside of the card made and I used a stripe of ribbon to keep the card closed.

A Pretty Little Purse For A Princess' Special Day

Hello Scrappy Friends! Tracy here today with a cute little purse I made for my granddaughter's 10th birthday. She's spending her birthday at Disney so I just had to go with a princess theme.

Robin's Nest Products

Other Products

I started by cutting and scoring the purse with my Cricut and the Girl Crown Glittered Cardstock.

Then folded along the scored lines.

I cut the scepter out of the Gold Glitter Cardstock and Pink Grapefruit Glitter Cardstock.

I glued the two pieces together using the Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect. This glue works exceptionally well gluing anything onto glittered cardstock. It just gets down into all the little nooks and crannies and holds so well. I also glued the dew drops onto the scepter using the Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect along with the Embellie Gellie by ScraPerfect. The Embellie Gellie makes it so easy to place the tiny little Dew Drops in exactly the right place. 
I cut a small length of the Rosy Straw and tied and glued it around the handle of the scepter.

Again, using the Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect, I glued the purse together. This glue makes it so easy to get everything lined up perfectly since it doesn't dry immediately. I glued the decorated scepter and additional Dew Drops to the front of the little purse, tied a couple of ribbons to the handles and filled it with tissue paper and a couple of gift cards. I just think this is so cute!

Hope you have a scrappy day and thanks for stopping by!

How To Make Adorable Mini Lace Crowns

Hello everyone.
Welcome to Chattering Robin's blog.

Michelle here with you today to share 
the first phase of my latest project,
featuring products from 
The Robin's Nest.

I am creating a lace crown mobile,
to hang in my craft room.
The following are my first 3 crown's
that I have completed.

For this project, I used a variety of Venice lace trims,
glimmer & ink sprays, acrylic interference paint, 
rhinestone trims & fabric stiffener,
last and not least of these, I used a variety 
of shapes & colors, of the 
Robin's Nest Dew Drops.

This is also a collaborative project,
featuring Best Glue Ever
and Embellie Gellie, and Transfer Foils
from ScraPerfect.

The first step, is to decide how large 
you want the crowns to be.
My measurement in length is 6.5 inches, 
the half inch being for the slight 
overlap to hold it together.

I then coated each trim, on both sides
with a fabric stiffener, and gave time
to cure on both sides as well. Mine
took an hour or so. This will vary 
with product preference.

While in the straightened & stiffens state,
I then spritzed with metallic and glimmer sprays.
Drying each with my heat gun, to start
shaping the lace into rounded shapes.

Next, I used ScraPerfect transfer foils, 
very randomly burnishing them over 
the surface of the lace, 
to add a hint of shimmer.

Once done, I used Best Glue Ever, to 
add the embellishments to each crown,
including the RN Diamond Dew Drops & Original Dew Drops
as the "jewels" on each crown.
I also used the BGE to hold the rounded crown shape.

Totally loving the way the first crowns have turned out.
What a fun project this is going to be
to complete.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Visit The Robin's Nest online store
for exclusive card & paper stock, as well as
the huge variety of Dew Drops.

Fast and Easy Baby Layouts

Hello Readers

Robin posting today.

These are the last few pages I made for my friend for her
new baby album.

These pages are 12x12,

I found that just adding some fun borders to the sides of the
pages give the layout plenty of room to just add photos to the middle 
of the page.

I used solid pink cardstock and then added 
my embellishements and stickers to the edge of the page.

Rosy Chevron Cardstock  Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock

This page could be used for any age, but I decided to share it anyway.

These are the Robin's Nest products I used on this page.
Black Herringbone Cardstock  Bunny Cardstock  Black Glitter on White Carstock Journal Tags

Have a great day!
