Splitcoaststampers.com - the world's #1 papercrafting community
You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST. We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
Start with 6 3/4" by 10" piece of cardstock. This will be the part that wraps around the bag of popcorn still in the plastic. Check for fit...I don't know if popcorn bags are "standard"...this is what I used. Stamp as desired. Wrap the cardstock around the popcorn and adhere the overlapping edges so that the fit is snug, but not super tight.
Using a 1/4" square punch, punch a hole in the top center of wrapper about 3/4" down from the edge and another hole in approximately the same location in the back center of the wrapper. If you do not have a 1/4" square punch, simply punch two holes side by side with the little rectangle punch, creating a hole that is square. Do not make the holes too close to the edge of the sleeve, or it will rip.
Remove the popcorn from the sleeve. Cut a piece of ribbon about 20" long. Fold the ribbon in half, and place the bag of popcorn down against the fold. Hold the ribbons AND the popcorn at the opposite end of the bag from the folded ribbon, and insert the side popcorn bag with the fold of the ribbon into the sleeve. Push it all the way to the end of the sleeve. Thread one ribbon from the inside of the sleeve through the hole to the other side of the sleeve. Repeat with the other side. Tie the ribbons into a knot and trim.
Embellish as desired. I added the crimped red wrapper and the little mini card.
Some of you may know that Michelle (boulderstamper) started the 3D challenges, but had to step down due to other obligations. I would like to thank her for starting this type of challenge, and I am thrilled with the opportunity to continue them!
If YOU have any suggestions for future 3D challenges, please let me know! If there are templates out there that you would think would be cool to try but just haven't yet....perfect! Let me know!
When you upload, please put 3D13 in the keyword section when you upload, and then post a link to your card here in this thread.
If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us STAMPIN' !!
You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.

Hi Beth and everyone else,
I love 3D projects, so I will try to join in when I can. Will it be one challenge a month?? I think I can handle that. I will have to be creative with the popcorn slider since I don't own any popcorn related stamps right now. But don't worry that will be part of the fun for me!! Thanks for taking over.
Beth, Once again you have done something really cute! Do you have any instructions on how to make these that you would be willing to share? You have some great samples and I sure will make some when things slow down a little!
Okay, I found them. I had my page set to only show two! There are some great things to make there! I really think more people would participate if the 3d challenge was shown on the home page where the sketch and technique challenges are shown. I saw several other people had commented on that as well. I can't wait to try some of these!
These are so cool! Gonna see if I can make these as gifts for my workshop next weekend!
