Ann Melvin Stampin' Up! UK Independent Demonstrator/Dashing Along Origami Wreath




Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog & project #2 of my Christmas Week. Today i have a gorgeous Origami Wreath for you. I love making these & i have to be honest & say that i have been put off from making them as i thought they looked difficult!! How wrong was i?? They really are pretty simple & also very addictive!!

  5. Here's another project I will be attempting to make. Hopefully it will not be too bulky to mail on my Christmas cards. A similar fold for the Dahlia flower too! Thank you for all your wonderful ideas and inspiration.

  6. Hi again Ann, I just tried to make this wreath and are you using cardstock or a designer series paper? I did a practice one with just a pattern paper and it was falling apart before I could get the last one in. Maybe the paper wasn't strong enough. Anyhow I shall try it again. I just hate to waste my good papers/cardstocks!

Exploding Box Mini Album!!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! I am so happy it will be Bank Holiday Weekend soon! We are supposed to be getting some gorgeous Weather to! Lets hope so. I hope you have a great Weekend whatever you do :-)

I am really excited about today's project, i think its so cool! Basically, from the outside it just looks like an ordinary box, however when you open it up, its anything but ordinary! Its a mini album! How cool???

I did see a project like this on another site but i can not seem to find it now. I saw the idea but used my own measurements etc. I really love this project and i loved making it to. Please do not think for one minute that this project is hard! Believe me when i say its very simple, it really is. Its not the quickest thing to make but its worth it!



My box was made with Berry burst 12 x 12" card, Whisper white card and the share what you love DSP. I also used Dragonfly dreams thinlits and celebrate you thinlits which will be carrying over to the new annual catalogue!

Gorgeous Flip Flap/Shutter card Tutorial

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog and thank you for stopping by!!
I am really pleased with Today's project and i think you will be to! I am calling this a Flip Flap/Shutter card. It reminds me of those shutter blinds that people have in there window. Its a really cool design.

I came across this type of card on another YouTube channel called JK arts. I did make some changes to the measurements and also simplified the instructions a little as i found them a little tricky to follow. Please don't be put off thinking it looks really hard and complicated...its really not!!


I think this card would be great for Valentines Day but you could also change the Hearts for Cakes or Balloons and turn it into a Birthday card. It would also be great as a Mothers Day card.



Another thing i like about this card is that it folds totally flat. It also stands up perfectly to. A really great card for lots of different occasions.

Beautiful Triple Enforced Keep Sake Box

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to my Blog. Today i have a really sturdy & super strong box for you. I am really quite pleased with this box & i know you will love it to!!
It is not hard to make and i think it looks very professional to. As the title says it is triple enforced!! Once you make it you will see for yourself how strong it is.


As you can see in the picture above i used the Delicate lace edgelit dies to make the closure of the box look more interesting and quite ornate. I added a cute padlock charm to finish it off.


As you can see the inside is also very neat and professional looking. I even added a cute faux mirror to the inside of the lid.
