Ice Cream You Scream - We all scream for ice cream!! Ice Cream Corner Blog Hop!

 Welcome to the Ice Cream Corner Blog Hop!

You have landed at Corner of Plaid and Paisley!  I am Ann Krucek, from Malvern, Ohio - here with a new project - it is not just a card! I wish we had smellavision because this is a wonderful smelling folio with a scented sachet bag inside! 

I am part of the Ice Cream Corner Blog Hop today and we are showing off anything made with Stampin' Up!'s Ice Cream Corner Suite from the Mini Catalog.  

I was so drawn to this collection at the first sight of this catalog.  I love the colors, the font, the ease of a punch - just a great set!!  And of course - who doesn't like ice cream!

This is such a great set to send a little ice cream gift card for a birthday or thank you, however, I wanted to make a little seat gift for a group of ladies in my Stampin' Up! family who just finished with a weight loss challenge!!!  So I did not think the ice cream gift card was the perfect thing to lay on them at this point.While I was shopping in Kirklands one day - I ran across these sachet bags that reminded me of the Ice Cream Corner Suite. - My little lightbulb went off - perfect - no calorie treat that won't break the bank!!

So I was off to make up a little holder to fit these sachet bags and here is what I came up with.

  • The base of the folio is Pool Party Cardstock cut 7" x 11" and scored at 5 1/4' and again at 5 3/4" to make a book spine
  • The pocket of the folio is a Cinnamon Cider Card Stock cut and scored with the dimensions shown 

  • Score the two short sides and one long side at 1/2" and 1", burnish and fold to make your pocket box.  
  • Adhere with Tear and Tape to the bottom edge of your folio.
  • Cut a piece of long ribbon (I used the Polka Dot Tulle) and adhere it to your folio base- front and back with a little Stampin' Seal.
  • I decorated my folio with Basic White, Cinnamon Cider Cardstock and the Ice Cream Corner DSP - this goes over the top of your ribbon used to tie your folio closed.
  • Cut a scalloped circle and a plain circle for the sentiment and stamped out an Ice Cream Cone adhered that and the sentiment with dimensionals.  I added some of the little paper Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles by just using a dot of glue on the back of each one.
  • A little bit of decoration in the inside with the Oval Occasions on the box holder and a sentiment from Simply Succulents on the left side.  

I hope you enjoyed this sachet holder and hopefully it sparks some ideas for a future project!

Here are a ton of other ideas from the talented bloggers taking part in this Ice Cream Hop-

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
