Tiny Adorable Envelope Punch Board Gift Box!



Hi Everyone,

Thank you for visiting my Blog today!
So....have you had any Snow??? I have had lots!! It is still snowing now and we have already had about 3" already! The Snow is very pretty to look at but that is about it for me! I really did not think that it would Snow as much as it has.

Anyway, on with today's project. I came across this adorable little box on pinterest. I can not take credit for it as a Lady called Paper Symcho did it. As soon as i saw it i just thought it was so cute. It is very easy to make and you only need a very small amount of paper and card. I love it.




This sweet little box is made using the Envelope Punch Board. I think they would make great table favours. They would also be great to put some mini eggs in and make it in an Easter theme. I hope you you will give it a try as its just so sweet.

DIMENSIONS

CARD MEASURES 5" X 5"

LINE UP @ 1 1/2" AND PUNCH & SCORE

THEN LINE UP @ 3 1/8" PUNCH & SCORE

TURN THE CARD AND LINE UP WITH THE SCORE LINES AND PUNCH AND SCORE ON ALL SIDES.

Please watch my Youtube tutorial for full instructions. You can find the link at the end of this post.

I will be back again tomorrow with a card!

Thank you

Love
Ann xx

#5 Sale-A-Bration Sunday Large Self Closing Gift Box

Today i have been using the gorgeous FREE stamp set called Lots of Lavender & also the FREE DSP called Springtime Foils.






I love the box i have been making today, its self closing & very large. You can fit lots of treats/gifts in. Its also quite simple to make and i think it will have the recipient wondering how to open it!! This box looks so pretty with the Springtime foil DSP. A great box for a Mothers day presant.

Springtime Foils Faceted Gift Bag




Hi everyone!

Welcome to my blog & my usual Friday tutorial. I hope you are all well and looking forward to the Weekend! I can not believe how fast this week has gone. To be honest, this year is flying over already!! Its nearly March! I have noticed the last few evenings have felt very Spring like. I have been listening to the birds singing away while i have been in my Craft room!

With that being said i have made a spring like project. Well it has a spring colour and feel to it. I think its such a sweet little gift bag that would be ideal to gift some Chocolates, Nail polish or Soaps. It is also very simple to make.

I used the GORGEOUS Springtime foils DSP. This paper is perfect to ink! I used a sponge brayer and So Saffron ink to colour mine. It does not cover over the foiling either so don't worry about that! You can have so much fun changing the look of this beautiful DSP.

DIMENSIONS

DSP MEASURES 10" X 6"

Please check out my youtube tutorial for full instructions of how to put this bag together.

Love
Ann xx

Another GENIUS Idea!!! Make your own die storage pockets!!

Hi Everyone,

I know that i don't normally post a tutorial on a Thursday but i just had to share this idea with you!!! I think it is soooo cool!!
As you know i am rather obsessed with the laminate pocket thing at the minute :-) I have had my thinking cap on again and i have came up with a really cool idea. I have made my own die storage pockets!!! How cool is that???



It works the same way as the bookmark pocket i made and the dashboard for the Travelers Notebook!!! So easy to do and all you need is a laminator and some A4 pouches!

I am so pleased with this idea, you will never need to buy pockets for your dies again!! Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions.

Thank you!

Love
Ann

Making your own pocket dashboard for a Travellers Notebook!





Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog!
When i made my Travellers Notebooks a couple of weeks ago, i said that i would do some more tutorials on accessories for them. So that is what i have for you today.

This dashboard is made in the same way that i did the Bookmark sleeve. It is so simple to do and such a fantastic idea!! I came across a few of these tutorials on Youtube. All you need is some A4 Laminating pouches and a Laminator!

The great thing is taht you can change the DSP when you like and also add photos or stickers etc. The list is endless really. I hope you like the idea and will give it a try. My mind is ticking away with other ideas i can come up with. I have a couple in my head already :-)




DIMENSIONS

2 PIECES LAMINATING SHEET MEASURING 4" X 6 1/4"

1 A4 LAMINATING SHEET

2 PIECES DSP MEASURING 3 15/16" X 6 1/8"

Please watch my youtube tutorial which i have linked at the end of this post.

Thank you!

Love
Ann xx
