Time for another great Tour de Freaks blog hop. Grab your gigantic cups of coffee and sit down for the next 30 minutes and enjoy this creatively crafty crew!
If you've just selected the "next on tour spot" button from the prior blogger (the fabo Wendy Wexler) then you're in the right spot.
First up. a hand crafted gift box. Here are some general directions for recreating the box. If you need more direction than what I've listed, please don't hesitate to send me an email. I'd be happy to help.
The top of this little box was created with the Stampin' Up! Petal Card die from Sizzix. First cut Dusty Durango cardstock the size of the Bigz die. Glue your designer paper (Merry Moments) to your Dusty Durango cardstock. Face your designer paper down and work through your Big Shot. Now you have the top.
The inner square of the Petal Card is 2 1/2", so to create a box to fit underneath, you simply need to score your cardstock at 2 1/2" intervals.
Before adhering the sides together, stamp snowflakes (from the upcoming Holiday Mini) using Soft Suede and Curry on the outside of the box.
The snowflakes were simply cut from the opposite side of the Merry Moments designer paper I used for decorating the top. The rest are just some fun embellishments.
Here's another project using the Merry Moments designer paper. Just goes to show you how versatile the paper is ;-)
The Soft Suede paper in the rear of the card is a Top Note die cut so just the edges show. The stamp is "True Friends", and oldie but a goodie!
To get multiple colors on the flower, I first stamped in Curry and used a sponge dauber to tap around the inked rubber using Dusty Durango.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you've enjoyed the projects.
