Welcome to my Blog & thank you for stopping by. You may of noticed that i have not been around for the last few weeks. I took a break from Youtube & my Blog as i have not been to well again & i just really needed a rest from it all. Anyway, i am back now & i have some fantastic projects lined up for you. I really hope you enjoy them & please feel free to share my posts/videos etc.
So to kick it off i have this beautiful Easel style hat card that also has a matching presentation box. Firstly i want to say that this project popped up on my pinterest feed. There was no tutorial however, just a couple of pictures. As soon as i saw it i new i had to try and make it. The easel card is very similar to the one i found of Pinterest but the presentation box i made was very different from the original. So in principal this project is not my idea but i made up my own tutorial. I shall put the link at the end of this post for the original creator. Credit where credit is due!!
This really is a very simple project to make and definitely a 'keepsake' card. I also had the idea of making the presentation box a larger 'Hat' box but to be honest i hate making circular boxes! I just find them a pain & can be very difficult to put together. So with that being said i just opted for a square gift box.
I will list the sizes of the circles i used and also the measurements for the gift box. Just bare in mind that if you use different size circles to me, your box may not fit your card.
I hope you have enjoyed my Project today and maybe you will try one for yourself. It really is so beautiful and quite unique.
