layered "packs" | tutorial

hello and happy monday! monday means a new tutorial and i've got a simple one that gives you a little insight into my layout process. i don't make these layered packets every time, but they do happen often.

let's get started.
first, grab your supplies. i like to include glassine envelopes. notebook paper and scrapbook paper, ribbon or twine, evalicious tags, stamps and badges, washi tape, letter stickers and anything else that might layer quite nicely.

next grab your stapler. i use tim holtz's tiny attacher. the small size is perfect for the packs.

next, start layering up your stuff and staple in discrete locations or in places where you'd like the staples to be part of your embellishing.
this pack is the start of a birthday card. i also use foam adhesive to pop up some of the layers.

the start of another birthday card. (i've got a few parties to attend this week. ;) )

this one is the start of a layout. i just LOVE how evalicious products are perfect for layering!

once you have your stacks completed, you can just glue them to their bases and add a few small touches and you're ready to go!

the cards just need to be adhered to the bases.




the layout just needs a few extras to complete it.
i added a few embossed evalicious labels for the top border and some washi tape for the bottom border and layout is complete. easy, right? :)

now it's your turn. i challenge you to make a  few layered "packs" on your projects and see how fun and easy they are. we'd love to see all of your evalicious projects in our Flickr gallery here.

evalicious products used...
this christmas large tags (yes, one of those tags is a christmas one.)

I hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial and are inspired to give these little packs a try.

have a great day!

Love the idea of starting with the actual design of the layout/card & then simply sticking it on the cardstock..so smart!
