April Printable Challenge

April Printable Challenge

Have you seen the latest FREE printable in the April Country Corner Newsletter? It features Country Craft Creations exclusive Country Bunny collection. This printable is perfect for creating a stand alone craft or use to enhance your other creations. This month, I'll be sharing two ways that I used the printable -- both were quick and easy to make.

INSPIRATION #1

I used 32 lb copy paper to print out the monthly printable. I just love the lush feel and weight of this paper and highly recommend. Plus, I knew I didn't want to use heavy cardstock so it would be easier to fold the envelope.

The printable was designed to make it fairly easy to cut by hand so that's what I did.

Then I scored the envelope using the lines in the design.

I folded the sides in and glued the bottom flap to the sides, creating the envelope and added the insert.

On the front I added one of the stamps and glued down the adorable bunny, leaving it open so I could tuck in the tag. I used the butterflies to cover the tag hole and added one as a decorative element on the envelope flap.

A super cute little envelope for writing a special note or including in another project.

INSPIRATION #2

What's great about a printable is that you can print it as many times as you want. So, I created another design decorating the front of the envelope like the first one. On the inside I created an accordion pull out using the insert and papers from the Country Bunny collection.

I, again, scored the envelope using the lines on the design. I also score 1/8" out from the top and bottom flaps of the envelope to make room for the accordion piece.

I created a flip up to go over the accordion piece. This measured 3 13/16 x 6". Score on the long side at 3". Glue one side to the inside of the envelope, in the middle. I glued the insert from the printable to the front of the flip up.

Then I cut the accordion piece (3 13/16 x 12). On the long side, score at 3, 6, and 9. I created a hinge to attach the accordion piece to the inside of the envelope. This measured 3 13/16 x 1" and score at 1/2". Attach the 1/2" hinge to one end of the accordion and glue the other hinge onto the envelope base in the direction you want to pull out the accordion. I put mine at the top.

Fold up the envelope and partially glue one of the butterflies to the center of the bottom flap and tuck the top flap into it and your envelope is closed. A great addition to a mini album or folio.

Hope this inspires you. I can't wait to see what you create! Don't forget to share on Scrapbookers of Country Craft Creations Facebook Group.
