Door hanger tutorial using the CTMH ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge

Hello, friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was very busy, but I guess that is because school starts today. There never seems like enough time to do everything that needs doing. I have to admit I am glad school has started though. My little one was starting to drive me a little crazy ;-)

This week I am going to finish up the box/bag tutorials for the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. I cannot believe there are so many bags and boxes on a cartridge that is not a box/bag cartridge. Not only that they all come together really nicely which it great.

This little door hanger box is so unusual. I am pretty sure there is nothing like this on any other cartridge. This would be a great gift for those students heading off to college. I know I would have loved one of these on my dorm room door. That way someone could just jot down their message on the little note pad. You could put all kind of things in the little hanger though besides notepads and pencils. You could even put little treats in them from Santa for the little ones.


I used all Close To My Heart supplies except for the adhesive and notebook.
The paper I used is called Mayberry.
I cut the box out using the 'fit to page' feature on the 12" x 12" mat.
I scored it using my ScorePal.
I used Terrifically Tacky Tape as adhesive.
It was very easy to assemble.
I thought it needed a little bit more, so I measured the front and cut a piece of patterned paper to fit.
Then using Art Philosophy I cut out this interesting shape at 2".
I cut this butterfly out at 1" using the ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge.
Then I adhered the pieces together.


Because I love ribbon, i felt this needed just a wee bit. The ribbon I used is called the Pink Designer Ribbon.
Then I added the shape to the front.
Remember this flower that I made in the flower tutorial a few weeks ago? Well, it was still sitting on my desk, so I added it.
then I added this note pad I bought from Papertrey Ink. The pad was too long, so I trimmed off a few inches from the bottom with scissors. 
I stamped on the pages of the note pad using this INK,
this INK, and
The pair a phrase stamp set.

Too cute. I can see not cutting the hanger hole and using magnets on the back to hang on refrigerators. So many uses come to mind. Thanks for sharing.--Ryansmaama
