No Die Handbag Style Pillow Box!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog and thank you for stopping by today!

I came across these gorgeous pillow boxes the other day on YouTube by a Lady called Rejoice & Create/. I thought they were so cute, clever and very easy to make. You can also make them in different sizes and i think they would be perfect for Weddings, Birthdays and just to pop little gifts in. I hope you like them.

As the title states you don't need a die to make these cute boxes. All you need is something circular to score around. I used a large plate and also a large circle die to make some of mine. The width of your pillow boxes will depend on how big your circular object is. You will also need a punch or die to make your little handle.

DIMENSIONS

LARGE PILLOW BOX, DSP MEASURES 6 X 11"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 1 1/2",  5 1/2"  &  9 1/2"

SCORE THE SHORT SIDE AT THE TOP AND BOTTOM ONLY @ 1", BOTH SIDES


SMALL PILLOW BOX CARD MEASURES 8 X 4"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 1 1/2",  4"…

Gorgeous Mini Album In a Pull Out Draw!!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog & thank you for stopping by today!
Today i have another sweet and different mini album for you. I know loads of you loved the exploding box album that i made the other day. My little brain was working away thinking of ways i could modify the design :-) I came up with an album that has a very similar concept but this time its a cute pull out draw design! I hope you like it.



Again this really is very simple to make and i think it looks so sweet. I reinforced the drawer and the photo mats are glued onto chipboard making it very sturdy. The idea is that you can lift the photo mats out of the box. I thought this would be a good idea for when you are adding your photos and you could also just display it on your desk etc.

I used an upcoming In colour called Lovely Lipstick. I love this colour, it is so gorgeous, very vibrant and quite bold. I also used some new  In colour DSP. The little tags on the back are made using the tailored tag punch and the tabs …

Exploding Box Mini Album!!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! I am so happy it will be Bank Holiday Weekend soon! We are supposed to be getting some gorgeous Weather to! Lets hope so. I hope you have a great Weekend whatever you do :-)

I am really excited about today's project, i think its so cool! Basically, from the outside it just looks like an ordinary box, however when you open it up, its anything but ordinary! Its a mini album! How cool???

I did see a project like this on another site but i can not seem to find it now. I saw the idea but used my own measurements etc. I really love this project and i loved making it to. Please do not think for one minute that this project is hard! Believe me when i say its very simple, it really is. Its not the quickest thing to make but its worth it!



My box was made with Berry burst 12 x 12" card, Whisper white card and the share what you love DSP. I also used Dragonfly dreams thinlits and celebrate you thinlits which will be carrying over to the new annual catalogue!

Memories & More Tiny Key Chain Mini Album!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog & another Memories & More Monday project!
Today i have the most cutest mini album that is also a key ring! I love it & i also laminated it so its more durable. This little album is so sweet and very quick & easy to make. You could also use scraps to make & decorate it.


There is enough space for 7 little photos. I just printed mine off the computer and then i punched them out with the 1/8" scallop punch. I bought the key chains from Amazon and they very inexpensive. I suppose you could also laminate the photos to if you prefer.

For the green album i made, i used the petal garden memories & more pack. The album i made in the tutorial was made using an upcoming pack called Delightfully Detailed. Its beautiful & i love the colours.

Memories & More Monday Tiny accordion mini album!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog and as always a big thank you for stopping by! Today i have another Memories & More project for. As you know i love the Memories & More card packs, you can do lots of lovely things with them. Today i have made a tiny little accordion mini album. This album is so cute and would be perfect to carry in your bag or purse etc. I also think it would make a great little gift.


This little album is very easy and quick to make and only requires very small amounts of card stock. You could probably make most of it from your scraps. I would recommend making the pockets out of paper though. Card will be to thick & know doubt you will have trouble keeping it closed. When finished this cute album only measures 2 7/8" wide x 3 1/4" tall! Its so sweet.

The papers will come in a 6 x 6" cello bag and will be labeled with the paper name and the quantity. They will come packaged in a sturdy pizza style box.
