WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #73 – DAISY LANE TEA BOX!

I have a sweet little Daisy Box for you for Wednesday’s WOW! #73.  You could use this to gift Tea Bags or some small chocolates.  I have the Tutorial below.

It doesn’t take long at all to make.  I used the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper for the strip around it.  The daisies were stamped from the Daisy Lane set and punched with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch.  I did 2 of each and layered them together.  The leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch.  If you check the leaves closer I scored along the centre and then curled them up a little.  This gives them a little dimension.

Here is how to make your Box.

Tea Bag Box

NB: Measurements are in both Metric and Imperial.  (apologies in advance for the 16th” measures).

Cut card to 19cm x 14cm (7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″).

Score card at 8cm and 11cm on the 19cm side . (On the 7 1/2″  side score at 3 1/8″ and 4 5/16″)

Score card at 3cm and 11cm on the 14cm side. (On the 5 1/2″ side score at 1 3/16″ and 4 5/16)

Cut Designer Series Paper piece at 6cm x 28cm (2 3/8″ x 11″).

To assemble the box.  Fold and score on all the lines.  Cut up on the small score lines on the long sides of the card.  See below.

Assemble the box by firstly adding adhesive to the 2 small tabs placing it on the outside of the tab. Fold up and bring one of the side panels over to adhere on to the tab.  Do this on both sides of the box.  Add adhesive along the outside of this long tab and then adhere the other long tab down on to this. This forms your box.

Place adhesive, (I use Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive) along the back of the paper strip and wrap around the box and adhere down. Decorate as you like.

Hopefully that makes sense.  I was a little time pressed today to get the full photos together.  If you need more information, drop me a comment and if you would like a video then let me know.

Enjoy making the box.

STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD BLOGHOP!

 

Today I am taking part in a Blog Hop with the Demonstrators from the Stamping Around the World Tutorial team I am part of.  This is exciting! I hope you can take some time and enjoy the short hop around the world.  You might have come from  Sue Allen’s Blog or just starting out from here.  That’s ok.  Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and hop along to each blog.

Today I am sharing a project with the Hello Cupcake set.  I used this set in my project for this month’s Tutorials so thought I would use it again for the Blog Hop project.

Using a Clear Acetate Card Box I created a set of cards.  This would make a nice gift set.

The paper is from the Brights Paper Stack in the Annual Catalogue.  It is 6″x6″ (15.2cm) and not quite wide enough to wrap around the box completely.  I could join it but then you would notice it on this.  So I just went with a strip across the front and tied around some Lemon Lime Twist Organdy ribbon around the strip before adhering it to the front of the box.

The diecut “friend” is from the new Well Written Framelits Dies.  The “FOR YOU” is from the stamp set Well Said. These two come as a bundle or individually.

I made a set of 5 one layer cards using 5 different colours from the Brights Collection: Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Bermuda Bay.

The cupcake base was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  The “frosting” was stamped on scrap white card in the ink colour and then fussy cut out.  This was raised up with Dimensionals..  I stamped “sprinkles” in the corner in the co-ordinating colour. Of course, a Rhinestone to finish. 🙂

The cards were very quick to put together.  You could make them even quicker if you stamped the “frosting” directly on the card.  It’s nice to have a little card set on-hand to give out to someone.

Here are a couple of them individually to see.  I had to add a few sprinkles around for the photos. 🙂

This one is in Mango Melody.

This one is in Poppy Parade.  This is not a colour I use too often but I liked it on this card.

I hope you liked the Hello Cupcake card set.

PILLOW BOX CARD HOLDER!

I just received the Kraft Pillow Boxes recently. These are lovely little boxes for little treats. I will do that with them soon but I had different ideas for this little project.

I made a little pocket with a matching note card and envelope using the Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes.

This is a great size to give a little note to someone as a pick-me-up or a Thanks.  Add a chocolate treat or even a Gift Card.

To make these little pockets, simply cut the top off the Pillow Box just under the curved score line.  Then assemble the Pillow Box.  Decorate it as you like after it is assembled.

To decorate mine, I added a wide strip of the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and then a narrower strip over the top.  I wrapped around some Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon and adhered a bow with a Glue Dot.  The sentiment from the Love What You Do stamp set was stamped in Rich Razzleberry and then I cut around the ‘friend’ word with scissors.  That was raised up with Dimensionals.

The Narrow Note Card was stamped with the flowers in Memento Black and then “filled” with one of the small “dot” type stamps in Rich Razzleberry.  I added some Old Olive leaves.  Of course, finished off with a Linen Thread bow and a Pearl from the Adhesive Artisan Pearls. The envelope was stamped with a matching flower.

These are so quick to make.  I think I need to make some more so I can have some on hand to give out.  How will you decorate yours?

Thanks for stopping by.

Catch you again soon,

Jenny

LOTS TO LOVE VALENTINE FLIP TOP BOX!

So it is Valentine’s Day here tomorrow apparently.  We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day in a big way in Australia.  You might give your “significant other” a little chocolate treat and I do give my 2 kiddies (well they are mostly adults now), a little chocolate treat.

I thought that this year I should do SOMETHING! I have had the Lots to Love Box Framelits for a couple of weeks and not used them.  I had this in mind for about that long too.  So I just managed to create it in time.

I call it a Flip Top Treat Box. I am sure you could use the idea for a Gift Card not just chocolates.

This is with the Flip Top open. Mmm! Chocolate Hearts!

It has a little card insert in it to add the Chocolates. I added a Glue Dot under each one to stick them them to the card. I added a loop of ribbon which was adhered to the end of the card and then I added a small red punched circle to cover it.

CREATE YOUR OWN FLIP TOP TREAT BOX

1. Cut 2 of the box shapes from the Lots To Love Box Framelits from your card.

On one piece which will be your top score it at half way along the long side of the box. This will be at 6cm (2 3/8″) which is from the scored line measurement not from the start of the curved edge.

2. Place adhesive on the underside along the long tabs ONLY to the half way point that will be adhered to the box.  You don’t want to adhere the whole section or it won’t open. I added the adhesive on the curved end half.

3. Adhere the top piece to the bottom piece of the die-cut box.  Your bottom piece will have the curved end to the opening end as shown in the photo below.

4. Decorate the box as you like.  I used the Party Pandas set.  The hearts were cut from the Lots of Love Box Framelits set. The sentiment was cut with the Layering Square Framelits.

So cute enough for Valentine’s do you think?  Maybe it is a little late now to whip some up but file it away for another special Occasion.

Below I have a collage image ready to PIN.

Have a great day,

Jenny

SILVER GABLE BOXES!

Have you seen the Silver Gable Boxes in the Occasions Catalogue?  These make really quick gift boxes in no time.

I shared in the last post the boxes I made up for the Lucky Door Prize for my launch. Head back to see those.  I made a few more up to show ideas with them.  Let me show you.

Firstly, a simple one with the Hedgehugs set.  Cute!  The paper strip is from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  I stamped the hedgehog in Dapper Denim and coloured the centre of the flower with the Lemon Lime Twist marker.  I added a bow with Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped ribbon with a glue dot.

Here is another Gable Box.  This time decorated with the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.

 

The sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms set.  I love the Metallic Edge Berry Burst Ribbon.

Here is another version of the boxes.

This time I cut off the top of the Gable Box. So the handle section along the scored line.  Then created a wrap using the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP.  I added a strip of the Berry Burst cardstock and then tied some Lemon Lime Finely Woven Ribbon.

You can grab the boxes in store now -> HERE and decorate them how you like.  They are $14 for a 12 pack.

Grab some and give a little treat to someone to brighten their day.

MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS PIZZA BOX!

I created this Pizza Box project for a Christmas class a few weeks ago.  I didn’t share the box close-up at the time so I thought I would share it with you today.

I used 2 different pieces from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper pack. and layered them on an Old Olive Card mat.

A Stitched Shapes Circle was cut from the Gold Foil Sheets.  The sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments was cut with a Layered Circle Framelit.   To finish it I stamped holly leaves and berries from the Holly Berry Happiness set and punched with the Holly Berry Builder Punch.

You can decorate a number of these boxes in no time and fill them with treats for Christmas.

Hope you are not getting too stressed with all that last minute Christmas preparations,

Jenny
