Castle Folding Card

Home Decor Joset Designs Planner Essentials

Picture This

February 21, 2021
It’s Sandy Diller here today with a fun little photo frame that is perfect for any child’s room where they can change the photo whenever they like. They can use it to display their favorite photos weather they are real or imaginary.

Begin by using the Castle Folding Card, cutting out the main part with the window section twice. Cut one down the center as shown above.

Line up the sections of the castle and glue together. Stamp some bricks using the stamp from the Prince & Frog Sentiments. Add some color, I used Watering Can Archival Ink and a blending brush.

Back the windows with the color of your choice, assemble the Prince and Princess and then add the photo frame from the Planner Essentials 3.

Crease the castle on each side, shown with the red arrows above.

When adding the backing for the frame – leave an open space just above the word PHOTO, shown with the white arrow above. This way the photos can be easily changed by sliding them into the opening.

For the base, simply cover a piece of chipboard with paper. In the photo above you will see that I marked where I wanted to place my castle and frame.

To make the frame stand up – cut 2 strips of cardstock 1″ X 5″ and crease ever inch. Fold on the creases and then glue together to form a box. Glue box at each end of the castle and then glue to base at an angle. This will keep the castle from falling over. Another piece of cardstock was added to the center section to help hold in place.

All that is left is to add the photo of your choice. A little crown was added to the photo just for fun.

Have a Royal Day,

Sandy

Fairy Tale Table Decor

October 18, 2020

Hey Friends! It’s EK and last week I create a Halloween table display featuring a whole host of Joset’s dies. Well, I am at it again, not because I am trying to start a trend (even though I think it would be a really cool trend), but because my 10 year old has requested a table decoration for her room featuring a little bit of fairy tale magic. My kiddo’s favorite princess has always been Cinderella, and I realized that I really had all the necessary dies to recreate the story in a single display from different Joset collections.

Step One: Die cut from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock the pieces from the Princess die set. Color the pieces with copic markers. Assemble the pieces using Kids Choice Glue.

Step Two: Die cut the bushes, tree stump and mushroom from the Forest Accessories die set and 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the die cuts with copic markers. Use Kids Choice Glue to assemble the pieces of the mushroom.

Step Three: Die cut the pumpkin pieces of the Pumpkin die set. Color this with copic markers and assemble.

Step Four: Die cut the mice from both the Scarecrow die set and the Forest Accessories die set. Color the mice.

Step Five: Die cut two grass strips and the clouds from the Tree die set. Color the die cuts.

Step Six: Using a 6x6x2 inch canvas, paint grass and a road onto the front and sides using acrylic paint. Let dry.

Step Seven: Die cut the pieces of the Castle Folding card out of 110lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the castle with copic markers and assemble. I glued the back of the card to castle to help add stability. Fill the window with Transparent Crystal Craft Drops. Hot glue the castle to the back of the canvas. Hot glue the clouds to the back of the castle allowing them to float out.

Step Eight: Trim the grasses to fit the width of the canvas leaving room for the road. Using hot glue adhere the scene to the canvas laying the different pieces.

I hope you get a kick seeing how I constructed this table top decoration. Yes it is a little fragile due to the different pieces being made of paper, but if you leave the decor simply sitting on a piece of furniture it is perfectly safe. There are so many different stories that we can tell using the different dies from Joset’s collections.

Let me know in the comments below what story you would want to see next. Until then, happy crafting.

Have A Magical Day

August 16, 2020

Hello friends and welcome, it’s Sandy Diller, today I have a magical card with an added bonus. I’m using the new Storybook collection from Joset. This new release is filled with whimsical characters that make you believe in magic.

The prince and princess stand as separate characters so when you display this fun card you can use your imagination and place them anywhere you like.

To make the castle – cut the Castle Folding Card twice and glue them together as shown below.

White Soft Finish Cardstock was used here and then some gray ink for shading, stenciling and stamping with the bricks from the Prince and Frog Sentiments. The window openings in the die were covered with gold paper from the back.

Brightly colored papers were used to add a whimsical look to this castle.

The stone facing for the door was made by using the included die and shading them with gray ink. The same die was used to add some windows on the the sections that needed them. The door opening was backed with a piece of vellum.

The castle was folded at each crease in different directions to make it stand up. The finishing touches for the castle were the glittered flags.

The Princess and Prince were assembled and then added to a separate stand that was made by using White Soft Finish card stock cut 5.5″ by 3″ and scored at 1.5″ and 4″, folded back to make them stand up. The paper was stenciled using an older stencil from my stash but you could use any paper that has stones or brick pattern. Using some dies from the Once Upon a Time Accessories die set I added a flower and then stamped and colored the frog from the Prince and Frog Sentiments.

My card still needs a sentiment so when I’m ready to send this card I will stamp it with one of the great sentiments from the Once Upon A Time Sentiments. This card folds up completely flat for mailing.

Have A Magical Day,

Sandy
