New Candy!

Here is the new blog candy we are offering this time. All you need to do to enter is sign up as a follower and email your details to me at sales@particraft.co.uk.  If you leave a comment after each new blog posting, you will receive another entry into the contest.  It's that easy!   As you can see there are lots and lots of fun goodies for the winner.  Hope you like what you see!
After the last post, there was a request from Lynne from Spain.  She has asked that I post the instructions for the confetti flinger card that I demoed on air Tuesday morning.  Ordinarily. I would do this with pictures so you could follow along easily, however I am heading out for a trade show in Scotland and I am busily organising and packing so I haven't had the opportunity to do any, but here are the written instructions. 
To make a confetti flinger card, you need to start with a piece of cardstock that is relatively sturdy cut to 2'' x 6'' in size.  You will need to make a score line down the length of each side at 1/2''.  This will leave you an area of 1'' in the centre of your strip.  Next turn this piece on the short side and beginning at one end, score at 3/4'', then the next score line will be 1 1/2'' from the previous line and then do that two more times and that will leave you with a 3/4'' section at the end. Next you will need to use your scissors and cut a "V" from the edge of the card in to the 1/2" score line.  You will need to do this at every score that runs across the short side of the card on both sides.  This will allow you to fold the tabs in easily and will ease the bulkiness of the piece.  Next, fold and glue all the tabs you have just created so that you will end up with one long piece that is 6'' long but only 1'' wide.  Next you will need to cut a small "v" notch in the edge of the first and third scoreline folds on both sides.  It doesn't matter which end you start with here, just that you skip a section.  Your rubber band will then be fitted into these notches, beginning with the short tab area, then crisscross it and fit it into the other set of notches at the third score line.  You will need to use the thickest card as a base in which to secure your mechanism so that it can be held down and armed with confetti.  The size of the outside card can be anything of your choice so long as it is wide enough to accomodate your mechanism when it is pushed forward to arm it (So 3" is the absolute smallest size the card can be from folded edge to the front).  Using dries clear Cosmic Shimmer glue, put a liberal amount on both of the 3/4'' tabs only and attach it to the inside of your card.  Check to make sure it can be folded backwards and the flap of your card will still fold completely down.  Hold this in place until it is firmly attached.  Next, cut a small piece of tissue paper in a square (2'' in size or slightly less), fold the corners to the centre to create a small envelope to hold your confetti and using sticky tape, attach it to the top of your flinger mechanism.  Load it with confetti, push the mechanism backwards and fold the card shut and it is now armed for any unsuspecting recipient! 
All for now, Sue x

nice candy! as always.

I made that card for a wedding I was going to at the weekend. I gave it to the best man just before the speaches (knowing it wouldnt have time to be opened before he read it...what a laugh it got, he was just turned in the direction of the bride and groom to read it to them and it went all over their heads! Was a sight to behold and got a good laugh all round...thanks for the idea!
