Amazing exploding Gift Box With Pull Out Draws

Hi Everyone,

Sorry this post it late, i have been busy decorating and i have also injured my back :-( I was moving a chest of draws and when i went to stand up i couldn't! I am in so much pain, i hope it goes away after a good nights rest.

Today i have a really cool box for you. As i mentioned in my tutorial i got this idea from a Youtuber called Shrusti Patil, i have linked her tutorial in my description bar on YouTube. I love this box, however i did change the measurements as Shrusti used a very large piece of card to make her box and we do not do that size. I changed it to a 12 x 12" piece :-) I hope you like it.





This box is just so cool!! I really do love it. You can make it for so many different occasions too. The draws are very roomy so you can fit lots of gifts in them.

This box is also really simple to make. You do need lots of card and pieces of DSP but it is so worth it. I used the Tutti Fruiti DSP for my box. I have to admit i was not keen on that paper when i first seen it. I love it now! Its just a really cheery and happy paper.

I really enjoyed making this project and i am sure you will to. Please watch my YouTube tutorial for full instructions, i have put the link for the video at the end of this post.

Beautiful Basket Style Gift Box




Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Blog and as always thank you for stopping by.
Today i have the most beautiful project for you! I came across a picture of this box on pinterest. It was a written tutorial from a Blog called Dorcas Designs. Here is the link to the Ladies Blog Post

I am so happy with how it turned out! I can not stop looking at it. Please do not be put off by thinking it looks complicated or difficult, it really is very simple to make. I know you will love it if you make one.



I think this box would be perfect for Mothers Day. You could fill it with chocolates and i think anyone's Mum would be so happy to receive this gorgeous box. It is very large inside so you could fit lots of lovely goodies in it. I put some beautiful acetate windows in mine and i just think it compliments the box beautifully. 


This box opens on both sides and closes with Magnets. If you don't have any you could also use some Velcro dots. I slightly altered the original design and created an extra score line so that you can hide the magnets underneath. Plus it also makes the closure slightly more rigid. 

DIMENSIONS

CARD FOR THE BASE MEASURES 12 X 8"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 4" & 8"

SCORE THE SHORT SIDE @ 1 1/4" ON BOTH ENDS.

CARD FOR THE LID MEASURES 12 X 4"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 1/2",  1 3/4",  5 1/4",  6 3/4",  10 1/4" & 11 1/2"

CARD TO STABILISE THE LID MEASURES 1 1/2" X 8"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 2" & 8"

CARD FOR THE HANDLE MEASURES 10" X 1"

DESIGNER PAPER FOR THE HANDLE MEASURES 9 7/8" X 7/8"

Please remember to check out my YouTube tutorial. You can find the link at the end of this blog post.

Also, why not check out my Affiliate links for Amazon & Craftstash. I will earn a small commission if you purchase any products through the links below. 





I will be back again on Sunday with another Video.

#3 Festive Friday Large Candle Gift Box With Decorated Candle

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to project number 3 of my Festive Friday series.
I really am quite proud of today's project. It looks so elegant & quite professional too. This is also a very large box & has a separate tray in the bottom that holds the candle in place.

I hope you like it.





I also made one of these boxes in Acetate which i show you in my tutorial. The acetate one does not have the windows cut out as you don't need them.

I did not stamp directly onto my candle. Instead i heat embossed my sentiment onto some heat resistant acetate and i wrapped it around the candle. I secured it with a glue dot.

This really is a very beautiful box and would make a fantastic gift for anyone. All the products i used are listed at the end of this post. The link for the You Tube video will also be there too.

DIMENSIONS

2 pieces of Cherry Cobbler measuring 11 1/2" x 7 1/2"          OR              29 cm x 19 cm

Score both pieces the same @ 3 9/16" & 7 1/8" (Short Side)   OR          9 cm & 18 cm

Score the long side @ 3 1/2",  7 1/2" & 11"                            OR            9 cm,  19 cm & 28 cm

1 piece of very vanilla measuring 4 1/2" x 8 1/2"                  OR            11.5 cm x 21.5 cm

You will also need 4 pieces of acetate for your windows.

Thank you

Sweet Hexagonal Halloween Rummage Box!

Hi Crafter's

Welcome to my lovely new blog! I hope you like it and have managed to subscribe for all updates. I really have had a fantastic response about my re-brand. I am so happy that you approve. Hopefully it won't take long to get used to my new name etc.

So, lets get on with today's post. As you will be aware, Halloween is just around the corner. I will be honest with you, i don't really 'do' Halloween. Never the less i have a really sweet project today. Hope you like it.




I love this little box. I think its a great idea, just put loads of little
treats in and you can just let the kids pick them out at Halloween.

You can decorate it any way you like. As i mentioned in my You Tube tutorial, the DSP i used for this project is retired. However you can still purchase it from the clearance rack. I have listed it below with all the other products that i used. The DSP is called Halloween night.



DIMENSIONS 

2 pieces card measuring 11" x 6"                 OR                  28 cm x 15.2 cm

Score both pieces the same @ 3 1/2",  7" & 10 1/2" on the long side         OR            8.9 cm,  17.8 cm & 26.6 cm 

Score the short side @ 3"         OR          7.6 cm

DSP x 6 pieces 3 3/8" x 2 7/8"          OR          8.5 cm x 7.3 cm

Gorgeous Ombre Gift Box With Foil Acetate Wrap

Hi my crafty friends!

I am back with another project for you and i am really pleased with it! I think it looks so beautiful.
I have had some of the 12" x 12" fabulous foil acetate for a while now, however i have not really used it :-( I dont know why as it really is gorgeous. One of the fantastic things about it is its double sided! Gold on one side and silver on the other. How fab is that??

OK, enough waffling, i hope you like my project.






To me this box has a very Eastern feel about it. I LOVE the ombre effect the Colour Theory DSP gives. You can use this box for all sorts of different occasions.
You could also alter the size and make it bigger or smaller.

As i mention in my You Tube tutorial, the acetate has a protective film on it. Just remember to remove it before you put it on your project.

I have listed all the products i used for this project at the end of this blog post. If you would like to purchase any, please just click on the picture links and you will be taken direct to my 24/7 online shop.
