When we make projects we like to be quite thrifty with the products we use so we ultimately save money to spend on more new products, right? Well today a fellow demonstrator posted a message on a forum about placement of the Curvy Keepsake Box Die Thinlit on an A4 sheet of card. I’ve always cut my card in half and layered them together and cut 2 at once and this makes 1 complete box. Today I worked out you… Read more »

Take a piece of DSP 8.5cm x 8.5cm and adhere to the lid of the treat box so… Read more »

I don’t have a video for you today but I do have a tutorial. Now this is a ‘Round Box’ with the Scallop Tag Punch used to close it. It’s actually a bit of an optical illusion and relies heavily on correct scoring and closure.   INSTRUCTIONS Card measures 21cm x desired height.

I used the Decorative Label Punch and the Kraft card Stock for these… Read more »

In my endless searching of bargain shops, I cam across these ever so cute mini take away cups. Really they’re only big enough for one mouthful of drink but I thought they’d be great for parties. You could fill one with sweets and the other with party favours such as balloons, etc. So I decided to make a little take away container so you could fit 2 in the box with a handle. Now if you were doing this for a… Read more »
