Stampin'Up! Coffee Cafe Mini treat bag video tutorial

I made this Stampin’Up! Coffee Cafe Mini treat bag video tutorial for my 3D swap for Thailand with Stampin’Up!  What an amazing experience! Be sure to check out my CreatingForGrace demo FB page for some photos I shared.

I started with the mini treat framelit bag cut in Early Espresso paper and assembled using the Tear & Tape adhesive.  This is stronger and holds together 3D items very well.  The white cardstock is cut at 2″ x 4″ and stamped using the Timeless Texture stamp set.

Next stamp the cup and lid and use the Coffee Cafe framelits to cut them out.  Add the green mini chevron ribbon and attach the stamped white cardstock.  Pop up the coffee cup with dimensionals and attach.  Use a glue dot and some linen thread to attach the corrugated elements tag.

And here is the video tutorial:

Here’s a look at the card “unfolded”

I had fun making this Stampin’Up! Crafting Forever Gate fold card.  Since I really enjoy coloring, and things with depth and dimension, and moving parts… LOL… so the gate fold card was so fun for me to make a card tutorial on. Start with a base of 8.5″ x 5.5″, score and fold 2 1/8″ in from EACH END. the panels on the front are 5.25″ x 1 7/8″. Although I used our Stampin Up watercolor pencils, I did not blend, I just simply shaded using ONLY the pencils. Easy!
