Mini Gift Boxes

Hello crafty friends I hope your keeping well.

These cute little gift boxes are made with the Time For Tea Designs Mini Gift Box Die and they are adorable! I seriously had lots of fun putting the boxes together and they are super easy to make as the score lines are already there after die cutting! They are great for party favours too.

To make the boxes I also used the Crafty Cats Clear Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies along with the Bearing Gifts Stamp Set .

I firstly die cut the box die using some Trimcraft paper peonies paper and used the heart and semi circle die as the window. I then added a piece of acetate behind the window before putting the box together. I added some sweets before tying the top together.
Once the box was completed I added my images.

I love how these turned out and they we’re really fun to put together.

I think they look so sweet and it’s surprising how much you can fit into them.
You can also leave the window out if you just wanted a box that doesn’t show through.

You will also need:

  • Card Panel Die (Sunny Studio Stamps)
  • Critter Stamps (Hello Bluebird)

To make my card base I trimmed down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm to 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches. I then die cut my card panel using some Sorbet Yellow Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm.

Next using some Apple Green Card Plain 240gsm I die cut some grass and adhered this to the bottom of my card. I then adhered the panel to my card base.

Using some more White Card Super Smooth 250gsm I die cut some clouds. I then stamped all my images onto another piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and coloured them in with my Copic Markers. I then trimmed the images out and adhered onto my card along with the clouds.

To finish the card off I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder onto a piece of Apple Green Card Plain 240gsm and trimmed this down. I then adhered this onto my card.

Boo-yah it’s your birthday

Hello! I am up today on the papermilldirect blog with a fun bright monster card.

I love making bright and colourful cards and today we have this adorable monster birthday card.

The products I used are:

You will also need:

  • Monster stamp ( Out of this world Uniquely Creative)
  • White Embossing Powder (WOW)
  • Copic Markers
  • Distress Ink 
  • Sponge

Monster Card

To start with I used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm which I trimmed down, scored and folded in half for my card base. I then trimmed down another piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm that will be used for the ink blending.

I used some bright distress inks for the background and I started by gently adding the colours and then blending them together with the sponge. Its very easy to do using White Card Super Smooth 250gsm as it blends like butter.

After this was dry I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder and adhered this to my card base using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then stamped and coloured my images onto some more White Card Super Smooth 250gsmand cut them out. I then placed them onto my card using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

Don’t be afraid to try different coloured inks when making your background. The White Card Super Smooth 250gsm is fantastic for blending inks and pigment inks are also a dream to blend.

I hope you have fun making a bright card and use any colour you like for the backgrounds. Its so fun and easy to do.

Thanks for stopping by
