Easy Memory Dex Box Tutorial

Easy memory dex tutorial



Hi Crafters!
I am back with another tutorial! You may remember last week i told you that i wanted to start making memory dex cards. I have been meaning to start them but just never seen to get time. When i got my latest DT package from Alinacutle that give me the push to start them as there was a really cool Memory Dex Die set in it. I shared it with you all in my last you tube video.

I began looking online for a memory dex storage system but i found they were so expensive! Then i had the idea to make my own. I am so pleased with it & because i have made it from chipboard its super strong! The 2 runners are made from paper straws! How cool is that?? I just coloured mine in with a permanent metallic marker. Its a fantastic box and i am sure you will agree with me if you make one :-)

These are also my first ever memory dex cards! I created them using 2 new dies from Alinacutle. The gorgeous Black Swan Die & also the adorable little Asian Girl Die As i said before the memory dex card is also created from Alinacutles Memory Dex die set. I love it as you can also create different edges with it.

If you want to have a go at making one of these boxes all you will need is some chipboard. If you don't have that you could also use an old cereal box. You will also need some scrapbook paper, 2 paper straws & i recommend a hot glue gun. I also glued some gorgeous trim around the outside of the boxes, you could also use Ribbon or whatever you have in your crafty stash.

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.
