Post#179 Happy Anniversary Card

Today I’m sharing a simple and elegant anniversary card…..
My Stampin Up demonstrator sent me a few goodies last month….some beautiful cardstock,some printed DSP and some embellishments…and this plain green cardstock caught my eye….It’s such a pretty colour…I’m not familiar with SU paper colours but I think this one is called Pistachio Pudding(pls. correct me if I’m wrong)…
I have used gold cardstock as the base and the green as the mat…I wanted the green to show more so the top layer is quite smaller than the green one….
After rounding the corners of all the layers,I have stamped the top layer using Versamark Ink and a large Doily Stamp and then used a gold embossing powder to heat emboss it…I also stamped and gold embossed the ‘Happy Anniversary’ stamp on a banner punched out of the same green cardstock…
At the center of the doily stamp I have placed a large flower punched from gold cardstock with a rhinestone in the middle….
Hope you liked this card…

Post#108 Double Flip Giftbox

I knew I was definitely going to make this box as soon as I saw a post by Caroline on  her blog called CraftyCarolineCreates…..I have added her tutorial video below my picture in case you’d like to see how this box is made…
It’s a great size rectangular box….and the two flip lids meeting in the center is the main attraction of this box….it looks complicated but its not so do try this box out….I’m sure you’ll be happy with the results…
I used plain black cardstock to create the base of the box and a printed kraft cardstock for the lid…once the box was ready I simply attached a flower punched pompom made out of brown paper and a couple of banners on it for decoration…
I love this box and it’s been sitting on my desk ever since I made it….Hope you liked it too…

Post#98 – Tiny Gift Box

While searching for projects and things to make with the Tag Topper Punch, an image of these really cute boxes came up but the link took me to the tutorial in a language I couldn’t understand much…..Thanks Google Translate, I was able to make these tiny goody gift boxes easily….
Here’s the link for the great photo tutorial By Nadine Koller – LINK 
I used a light blue printed paper to make these boxes…and then decorated them with a a few punched out pieces and Kaisercraft Collectables die cuts…I added a banner with a sentiment as well..
To close the boxes at the top I simply used a brown string and tied a bow…
Hope you liked these…

Post#96 – Small Tent Box

This is one of the cutest boxes that I’ve made….and yes I made this by following a tutorial by Sam Donald…it’s great for holding a few chocolates or treats or a small item…
It’s a triangle shaped box that opens at the top and the outside case/cover shaped like a tent closes the box nicely…and that means there are no ribbons or other things required to close the box…
I chose a plain grey cardstock for the box and a green and grey printed  paper for the cover…to decorate the box I made a narrow silver banner and added a stamped and punched flower and added the sentiment on a circle at the top…
Hope you liked how my box turned out…

Post#54 One Sheet Origami Style Gift Box – No Cutting Required

This box is made from a 12×12 sheet of paper and as the title suggests, there is no cutting and no wastage…and you get a box with two flaps closing on top as a lid….


Once you make all your score lines,you just need to fold it almost like an origami box….there is no glue required either….It just needs a paper band around it to keep the flaps closed…

It is much easier to make this card with a DSP than cardstock due to all the folding involved…I did try one with Kraft cardstock and it was definitely harder to fold than the DSP
I learnt to make this box from a tutorial on Frenchiestamps.com…If you’d like to make this box then please click on the link for the details and tutorial video – One box with One Sheet of 12×12 designer paper
Hope you liked these boxes….
