Steampunk at Sarah Hurley Challenge

Can’t believe it got so late already? Don’t think I’m going to get much time for crafting tonight, oh well at least I got to have a lovely long soak it the bath after Little One went to bed.

It time for another challenge over at Sarah Hurley and boy this one was a challenge for me…

STEAMPUNK

Now if you have read my blog before you’ll know I’m not a huge fan of the whole Steampunk genre and when your heart isn’t it you just can’t create something. So instead of trying to hard, I just printed off some of the lovely papers from Sarah’s Steampunk CD and set to with my craft knife, Kraft Card, Distress Ink and scoreboard and this is what I made:

It’s a little Sticky Note holder. I’ve kept it quite simple as the papers are so fab and need to be showed off. I’ve only added some chipboard flowers, which I covered in the same papers, a button, some ric-rac and a little metal butterfly charm (that I coloured with my ProMarkers so the colour matched).

I didn’t follow any instructions I just measure and cut so I’ll give you my measurements in case you would like to have a go at making one yourself (my sticky notes are standard square ones measuring just under 3” square)

1. Start with a piece of card measuring 3 1/4” by 8 1/4”

2. With the longest part of the card going left to right, score at 3”, 3 1/2”, 6 1/2” and 7” (hope that makes sense, it should if you have an MS Scoreboard)

3.Fold each score line. The end that measures 1 1/4” is the closure flap, you can leave it as is or like I did snip the corners, you could even use a fancy corner punch

4. Decorate. I won’t give you the measurements for all the little bits of paper I used, if you have a go at making one you’ll want to decorate it in your own style.

Tip: I’ve used DS tape as the closure, but I pressed it onto my jeans several times so that it wasn’t so sticky. I could have used Velcro or repositionable tape and I think you can buy proper little Velcro dots but I don’t have any so had to make do.

I hope this has been helpful and don’t forget to stop by the challenge blog and see some real Steampunk creations, rather than what I have decided to call my version…GIRLY STEAMPUNK!!
