#stampin up demonstrator Star top gift box tutorial


Hi Crafters,

Thank you for popping over to my Blog on this fabulous Friday!! Today i have another Festive themed project for you & i think you will like it. First off, i have to say that this is not my idea. I CASED this from one of my lovely Team members, Andrea Parr. Below you will find the link to Andrea's Blog:
http://www.craftylittleblog.com/

Andrea made this gorgeous little box earlier this year & i think its fab! It really is very quick & simple to make & to be honest its really large. You can fit loads of little gifts or treats in there for Christmas. I thought it would be a perfect festive project as the top has a 'Star' effect closure. I emphasized mine with some Silver foil card. You could use Gold or even glitter paper. The choice is yours.



To make my box i used Shaded Spruce Card, Under the Mistletoe Designer Paper, Labels to love stamp set & The everyday label punch. I just love the colours of this box.

  1. Love this box Ann. It's the first Hanukkah item I've ever seen made. It's a 6 pointed star (of David) not a 5 sided star. Thank you for sharing!!!

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!

Gorgeous Flip Flap/Shutter card Tutorial

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog and thank you for stopping by!!
I am really pleased with Today's project and i think you will be to! I am calling this a Flip Flap/Shutter card. It reminds me of those shutter blinds that people have in there window. Its a really cool design.

I came across this type of card on another YouTube channel called JK arts. I did make some changes to the measurements and also simplified the instructions a little as i found them a little tricky to follow. Please don't be put off thinking it looks really hard and complicated...its really not!!


I think this card would be great for Valentines Day but you could also change the Hearts for Cakes or Balloons and turn it into a Birthday card. It would also be great as a Mothers Day card.



Another thing i like about this card is that it folds totally flat. It also stands up perfectly to. A really great card for lots of different occasions.

Beautiful Triple Enforced Keep Sake Box

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to my Blog. Today i have a really sturdy & super strong box for you. I am really quite pleased with this box & i know you will love it to!!
It is not hard to make and i think it looks very professional to. As the title says it is triple enforced!! Once you make it you will see for yourself how strong it is.


As you can see in the picture above i used the Delicate lace edgelit dies to make the closure of the box look more interesting and quite ornate. I added a cute padlock charm to finish it off.


As you can see the inside is also very neat and professional looking. I even added a cute faux mirror to the inside of the lid.
