Box Tutorial

Yesterday's  "Notched Edge" Gift box tutorial:
You will need:
Two pieces of patterned paper-
The Lid: 6" x 4"
The base: 6 7/8" x 5"
Step 1. Score the smaller piece ( the lid) at 1" on all four sides. ����
2. Place this piece on the Envelope punch board.
Punch a notch at 1" on all four sides.
Note the 1" mark is right beside the edge of the punch.
3. Then turn your paper over and punch another notch at 1" on all 4 sides.
So that you have 2 notches on each edge.
4. With your sharp scissors cut from the notch up to the 1" score line.
Do this on the long sides only. These make the corners of your lid.
5. Fold up your box lid on the scored lines and Add some Sticky 
Strip on the edges of each tab.
6. Fold it up and create your box lid.
7. The base is even quicker.
Score at 1 5/8" around on all 4 sides.
8. Then with scissors cut up to the first score line.
9. Add sticky strip and fold up the sides into a box base.
Your box is finished and now ready to decorate!
Father's Day is coming up next weekend, so how about...
... a big manly paper bow and some hugs and kisses.
I whipped up the bow quick as a snap on the Envelope punch board
And the hugs and kisses come from the gorgeous new 
"Good Greetings" Set.



Making boxes with the Envelope punch board

Nothing like getting some new patterned papers and looking for something creative to do .y..
The paper is called "colour me Autumn" .
Here's a side on view of the box. It's a notched top box because the lid has these cute notches punched out with the envelope punch board.
The fun part is always decorating the box. A piece of gold twine a Framelit feather in silver glimmer paper and a For you tag. 
Have you seen the weekly specials? Gold foil paper is on special.
And there's new stock on the Clearance Rack, too.

New seasonal catalogue ... Sneak peek!

It's a new stamp set and framelit bundle from the new seasonal catalogue thats on its way!
When I saw this set in the catalogue I thought, hmm what will I do with that?
Then I saw the sample on that page and just had to have it. 
What do you think?
I put three colours together Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss and Coastal Cabana, then stamped and cut out a few on white and crumb cake cardstock. 
I just love how you can make a gentle background stamping with Baked brown sugar ink onto crumb cake card with the feathers falling like leaves.
Then I die cut another smaller feather out of gold foil paper for a pop of gold and tied them with a few loops of twine.
The seasonal catalogue goes live on 28 August not long to go... Contact me if you'd like a copy delivered to your door or perhaps you'd like a little launch party at your place?

Which of the five bundles do you like best?


Kinda eclectic, Tap, tap,tap!

A quick single layer card today featuring a watercolour wash background which I created with my water colour brush ( aqua painter) on whisper white.
Then I've stamped some kinda eclectic stamps around the edges in Lost Lagoon.
The old style typewriter is from "Tap,tap,tap" and is stamped with Blackberry bliss (my favourite in colour). A few butterflies stamped and punched finishes this very simple one layer card.
Are you ready to see the new seasonal catalogue?
It is going live for customers on the 28th August, next week.
