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. 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… Read more »

I have a cute little box for you today. When I was in one of the dollar stores the other day I found these Mento Chewing Gum containers which I thought would be great as gifts. Fathers’ Day is approaching on 7th September, so I thought they’d make the ideal gift. I do have a video tutorial below for you, however I must apologise for the quality of the lighting. I think I had the camera angle wrong and the… Read more »

Monday Makes this week features the Hardwood Stamp. Now I have the wood mounted stamp, as my personal preference for large background stamps such as these, is to use wood mount. Now the trick to using these large stamps, I find it to ensure you press the ink well onto all areas of the stamp. Line your card and the stamp up with your grid paper and stamp. I make sure I press all areas of the stamp onto the card,… Read more »

Last week I shared some photos of the Pop-Up Matchbox Card In A Box which will hold a Gift Card. I shared with you Rachael Lewsley’s site My Stampin’ Haven which is where I got the original idea. My project is a little different in that the box itself is a bit deeper and wider to accommodate a gift card being placed in the back of it in either the landscape or portrait position. Below is a picture of the… Read more »

Hello again. I meant to post this Friday as I wanted Friday to become my regular video day. However, new technology and old technology made things a little difficult. So here it is a couple of days late but I hope you enjoy it anyway. It’s a box made using the Angled Tag Topper Punch from the current Occasions Catalogue.   It fits a load of chocolates in it. However, think ahead to Mothers’ Day and you could easily put: a… Read more »

Well, hello everyone. Many people were wanting a tutorial on this little box I shared in some Facebook forums and on Pinterest and my blog, recently. Here it is and, even if I do say so myself, I think it’s very cute. Now, this was my very first video ever and I was very nervous and I know I need to move the camera for next time, so I will persist and hope to make it a regular feature of… Read more »

Welcome to my new posting for the weekends. I’ve called it Weekend Blend as it could be anything paper craft related – hence the blend. Anyway, I hope you like it as a new feature. I held an Occasions Catalogue launch the other night and a lovely group of ladies attended. Everyone received a little “thank you” gift with a small chocolate inside. You can’t have a party without chocolate 🙂 This little treat pouch is made using the new… Read more »
