Tutorial Day – Mint Box

Mint_Box_Banner1

Today I have a mint box for you. It has opening/closing ends and a window so the item inside can be seen. I explain on the video how I measure up a product to make a box for it.

Mint_Box

These are the boxes I made for a recent market stall. I made them specifically for Fathers’ Day which is the first Sunday in September here in Australia. I used the Decorative Label Punch and the Kraft card Stock for these ones which are slightly different to the samples in the video. Here’s the video:

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card – 11cm by 19.5cm
  • Window Sheet – 7cm x 5cm

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • On 19.5cm side score at 1cm and 3.5cm on both ends
  • On the 11cm side score at 2.5cm, 5cm, 7.5cm and 10cm
  • Punch the ‘window’ out with desired punch and cover with window sheet using sticky strip
  • Trim as per diagram below and place sticky strip down the 1cm edge and stick box together.

Monday Makes meets Blended Bloom

Hello and I’m back with another Monday Makes with Leonie Schroder. Be sure to check out her blog where she shows you the Blended Bloom coloured with the Aqua Painter after being stamped with Early Espresso. Check it out here.

Now I’ve chosen something different too. We all know what a fabulous stamp Blended Bloom is for Blendabilities, however it has many other applications too. I’ve been playing with Vellum lately and that’s what I’ve chosen to showcase today.

BlendedBloom2

This is just the flower cut out and coloured. I’ve stamped in VersaMark and Silver embossed the flower than coloured the back of the flower with Wisteria Wonder Blendabilities and the middle is coloured with Pumpkin Pie. The effect is stunning in real life and I will make it into a card and re-post once I’ve done that.

BlendedBloom1

This card features stamping again with VersaMark and embossing all stamped images with Black Emboss Powder. I’ve used Glue Dots to adhere the Vellum embossed flower to the front of the card. I just love how this card turned out and you can use it for a myriad of occasions.

BlendedBloom3

My last share is a Gold Embossed flower which still needs to be added to a card.

I hope you’ve enjoyed what Leonie and I have brought to you today using the Blended Bloom stamp and you are inspired to use the stamp in different ways.

PRODUCTS USED:

  • Card – White Vellum, Whisper White and Basic Black
  • Ink – VersaMark
  • Emboss Powder – Silver, Black and Gold
  • Blendabilities – Wisteria Wonder and Pumpkin Pie
  • Other – Heat Tool, Glue Dots, Snail
  • Ribbon – Whisper White 5/8″ Satin

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

Monday Makes meets Hamburger Die

Monday means it’s Monday Makes time and this week Lusing the Hamburger die.

20140728_102625

So here is my first Hamburger Box die made up. You can use Fast Fuse or Glue Dots to hold it together after burnishing all the scores well. I filled this one with Ferrero Rochers which look extra delicious against the Blackberry Bliss background.

20140728_102717

I then decided to see what else I could make out of this die and came up with this Crocodile/Alligator looking box. One little boy saw it at a show and immediately wanted to take it home to add to his crocodile collection.

20140728_102547

These little boxes would be terrific for children’s parties. Fill them with sweets and surprises for party goers to take home – just ideal as they’re not too big. You could make all types of different animals, you’re only limited by your imagination.

PRODUCTS USED:

  • Big Shot – Hamburger Box Bigz XL Die
  • Card – Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Basic Black and Whisper White
  • Punches – Circles and triangle
  • Ribbon – Whisper White Satin 5/8″ Satin
  • Pen – White Signo Uni-ball Gel
  • Adhesive – Fast Fuse or Glue Dots
