Hot Pink Floral Extended Mini Book Case

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Tiny Book Case Diecut with a fun added “twist”!
After applying an Adhesive Sheets to both sided of a piece of Chipboard I added patterned cardstock to each side, placed the diecut on top and run through the Diecut Machine. As in the photo below you can see where I cut an extra set of “flaps”. 
I adhered the “extra set” of flaps to the front of the case.
I also glued the bottom halves and the lid together.
I cut strips of patterned cardstock the same size as the outside and inside of the case and adhered to give it a cleaner look. 
I cut cording and tied to the closure and added a button, sequin and gem to the center of the closure.

I added an assortment of flowers and leaves, handmade and store bought, to the top of the lid along with lace, cheese cloth, thread bows and pearl sprays.
There you have it! I absolutely LOVE this bookcase diecut and how versatile this diecut is!

i-crafter April Blog Hop: Shabby Chic Butterfly Gift Box

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share that I was asked to be a part of the i-crafter Inspiration Team and, of course, I said yes! With this being the first of the month it is time for the quarterly blog hop and the newest release of i-crafter diecuts!

I started by making a “practice butterfly” with the Folded Butterfly 3D (222001) before committing to the finally butterfly for my project. I cut out and folded on each of the indentions on the butterfly. 
I pinched the center of the diecut and wrapped a piece of wire around, secured and shaped. It was very easy to put together.
Now I cut out the “real butterfly” that I used for my project. The only difference I added a sequin and gem for the head and pearl top pins for the antennas.
I covered a box that I had received as a gift with patterned cardstock and trim before adhering the butterfly to the corner of the box. I also added lace, thread, jute, premade flowers, leaves and pearl sprayers to complete this gift box. 
Besides this new butterfly diecut for April these are the other diecuts being released this month.

Now for the fun stuff! Here is the line up of the rest of the i-crafter Inspiration Team! Check each blog and see what each team member has created. Also be sure to leave a little “love” (comment) on each team member’s blog. 

You can find diecuts and other i-crafter products at Simon Says Stamps and i-crafter.

Poinsettia Gift Box

Hi everyone! I’m back with my second project of the month for Momenta! Since Christmas is only nine days away I thought I would share a quick and easy gift box that can be mass produced.
I started by running the Baker’s Box Cutting Template through the Freestyle Diecutting and Embossing Machine. I cut two diecuts out of Kraft Cardstock.  
I folded and adhered the tabs and the bottom to create the box.
From scraps of cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad I cut four poinsettia, two holly and a couple leaf sprigs. 
To create one flower I shaped two flowers and one holly with a Stylus. I adhered one flower on top of the other, added the holly and a leaf sprig to the back. I used a circle punch and punched a circle from one of the scraps of cardstock from the Peony Paper Pad and glued to the flower. I finished off by adding a sequin and glossy dot to the center of the flower and I did a messy loop of thread and glued behind the flower. 
I adhered the finished poinsettia to the upper corner of the lid of the box. From my stash I added the Merry Christmas sentiment next to the flower.

As you can see there is plenty of room to add candy or even a small gift.  As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Cheers! Box

Hi everyone! I’m back today with my project for Momenta! Since I have several upcoming birthdays I decided I would created a gift box.


I started by taking a part a small box that I had on hand. I folded in one section and place in the embossing folder from the Happy Birthday Stamp and Emboss Set and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. I completed the same steps for the other side of the box. 



I glued the box back together and inked over the embossed areas with an assortment of chalk inks.


I cut and adhered a piece of patterned cardstock from the Watercolor Metallic Paper Pad to fit the lid of the box.


I stamped the sentiment “Cheers!” from the Happy Birthday Stamp and Emboss Set and placed one of the Nested Oval Borders Metal Diecuts over the sentiment and cut out with the diecut machine.


I cut another oval diecut out from another piece of patterned cardstock from the same paper pad and glued to the back of the sentiment. I also stamped a party hat onto a piece of White Cardstock and fussy cut out. 


I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the diecut and placed on top of the lid. 


I added to the party hat and a flower and leaf punch (from my stash) sequins and a gems before gluing to the sentiment. If you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also if you aren’t following Momenta you can find them on FacebookInstagram, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube.

Have a Merry "Sloth-mas" Gift Box

Hi everyone and welcome to the Pocket Notebook Release Party! This is Eileen Hull’s newest book die with Sizzix. 

On the die, you get all of the pieces you need to make an entire book-the cover, pages, latch and pen loop! The Pocket Notebook measures 6 3/4” x 4 1/2” with a spine that can adjust from of 3/8” to almost 2”! String it with elastic, hemp, ribbon or twine. So many option for this fun die!

Eileen’s Inspiration and Educator teams have combined to show us their amazing Pocket Notebook ideas. Please follow the Blog Hop to see all of the fabulous projects, techniques and videos! There are also two GIVEAWAYS- the Pocket Notebook die and a gift certificate for Eileen’s Etsy store. To enter to win, leave a comment on each of the posts. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, October 8 on Eileen’s Facebook Live show.

For my project instead of doing the normal notebook I decided I wanted to do something a little different. I chose to make a gift box with an elastic closure. I know this looks a little hard but in reality it is easy peasy to create!

I started by covering both sides of Chipboard with Adhesive Sheets. Once I completed that step I added patterned cardstock from the Cozy and Bright Paper Pad and cut two of the covers from the Pocket Notebook Diecut and the larger “panel”  from the Make It 3D Diecut (retired).
I cut the “panel” in half, four inches each piece, with a Paper Cutter and folded the tabs in.
I adhered both “panels” tabs to the inside cover of the pocket notebook diecut.
Next I adhered the other cover to the other side of the “panel”.
I adhered the spine/bottom together and covered the sides with more patterned cardstock (I wanted cleaner edges and to cover the holes in the spine). 
I covered chipboard with adhesive sheets on both sides and applied patterned cardstock to both sides and cut “flaps”/spines from the Pocket Notebook Diecut. One flap is 1 7/8″ wide from the fold and I used a corner on the edges of the flap. The second flap is 1 1/2″ wide from the fold. I folded/rounded the edges of both spines.
I adhered the 1 1/2″ to the back side of the box.
The 1 7/8″ spine I lined up will the center hole after applying adhesive.

I added ric rac around the flap of the box.
I added velcro to the inside.
And before adding an Elastic Closure through the center hole on the flap I fussy cut one of the sloths out and adhered to the corner.
I gathered all my Christmasy seam binding, thread, jute, a bell and flowers and added to the corner of the flap.

Also from the same paper pad I cut out two tags and added those to the seam binding.
There you have it! Easy Peasy Christmas gift box using the Pocket Notebook Diecut! I am definitely going to make more of these to have on hand to put my Christmas presents in.

Altered Flowers and Butterflies Pillow Gift Box

Hi everyone! I am back today with a project I created for Momenta. 
I received a gift in this Plunder Design pillow box and I thought the floral pattern on the pillow box was pretty except for the logo. So I decided I would cover up the logo by altering the box.

First I double up a length of cording and tied a bow on the end of the pillow box.

I cut a stripe of blue and gold cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad and adhered around the center of the pillow box.

Next I selected a Green 2″ Watercolor Doily and adhered over the stripe of cardstock.

I fussy cut a flower and leaves from the Peony Paper Pad  and glued on top of the doily. 

I had a piece of leftover diecut from the Intricate Floral Cutting Template which I inked the butterflies and flowers before adhering to the corner of the box.

I added several loops of green thread under the butterflies and it is finished! Be sure to hop on over to Momenta for more inspiration! You can find them HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Pillow Box
Cording
Green Thread

Mandala Flower Gift Box

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a semi quick project with you all today! I have several of these kraft boxes laying around and I thought I would create a gift box for Mother’s Day.

I started by inking the Mandala Clover Wood Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I inked and stamped four times total. I fussy cut each stamped image out and cut the “stem” off each stamped image.

I inked a glass tray with following inks: CabernetMulberry and Aster Dyestress Blendable Inks and added water to each ink. I placed the four stamped images into the ink mixture and once each image was completely covered in ink I removed and let dry.

I inked the Leafy Border Jumbo Rollagraph (I couldn’t find the rollagragh but found the Leafy Border Mat which is the same thing but not the roller) with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and roll onto a piece of watercolor paper. I fussy cut two stamped leaves out. I inked a glass tray with the following inks: Inchworm and Moss Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. I added water to each ink and placed both stamped leaves into ink mixture and once each image is completely covered in ink remove. While the leaf images are still damp I shaped each leave.

I shaped each Mandala Clover “flower” image with a stylus and adhered each flower on top of each other and added a button and a gem to the center of flower. I adhered the leaves to the back of flower.

I adhered a paper doily to top/lid of box and added the flower with leaves on top of the doily.

I looped several loops of thread, added lace, a lace bow and glued underneath the flower. 

I finished the box with pearl sprays and two pearl top pins. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

I would also like to submit this project for the following challenge:

Thankful Gift Box

Hi everyone! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away?!?! Where has the time went to??? I thought I would share a little gift box I created for ClearSnap.

I carefully took a part and emboss each section of the box with the Wood Grain Embossing Folder. Next, I loaded three Art Daubers with the following inks: Candies Yam, Red Barn and Pumpkin Spice Inks and lightly rub in random spots to give a wood grain texture on the box. Once I got the desired wood grain effect that I wanted I put the box back together.

I inked a glass tray with Flagstone and Coconut Inks and add water to each color. I loaded a paint brush with Flagstone Ink mix and splatter each side of the box. Clean brush and load Coconut Ink mix and splatter each side. I fussy cut a doily from the DIY Shop Paper Collection and adhere to the top of the box.

I cut from the Crinoline fabric flowers using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and lightly ink the center of each flower with Canary Ink.

I added a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower. Next I laid each flower diecut on top of each other and pinched the center of all the flowers and shape.

I inked the feather stamp from the Thankful Stamp Set with Wicked Back Ink and stamp onto a piece of patterned cardstock. I did this twice and fussy cut each feather.
Next, I inked and stamped in Leather Ink the “Thankful” sentiment and two leaf sprigs. I also inked the edges of the sentiment with Butter Chalk Ink and fussy cut the leaf sprigs out and inked another leaf sprig with Clear Top Boss Embossing Pad. I added Copper Embossing Powder, set with a heat tool and fussy cut image out.

I glued the feathers, leaf sprigs and several loops of cording and thread to the upper corner of the box. I added the “Thankful” sentiment to the lid and finish off with flowers and sequins. 

I would like to also submit this project for the following challenge:

Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes: Challenge #360-#361

ClearSnap: Father’s Day Mustache Pocket Box

Hi everyone! I’m back to share a quick Father’s Day project I created for ClearSnap. Before cutting out the Flower Pocket Diecut I applied a total of four Adhesive Sheets to the front and back sides of the Mat Board. I cut 7 Gypsies Archtextures: Painted Door Cardstock to fit the front of the mat board, peeled the protective sheet off of the adhesive and placed the cardstock onto the mat board. On the back side of the mat board I cut 7 Gypsies Vintage Varsity: Stubs Cardstock (retired) and repeated the same steps as for the other cardstock. Once cut out I put together according to the directions on the packaging.

I cut from Kraft Cardstock a Medallion from the Medallion Diecut. Put together and inked with ColorBox Pigment Platinum Ink. I stamped the Mustache Rubber stamp onto a piece of white cardstock with ColorBox Archival Dye Wicked Black Ink. I fussy cut one of the mustache images out and adhered to the center of the medallion. Next I punched a circle out, embossed with the Starburst Embossing Folder and inked with the Platinum ink. I added a cording bow and sequins to finish off the pocket. Now all I need is some shaving supplies such as a razor, shaving cream, aftershave, etc. and its ready to give as a gift!

As always if you have questions please let me know. 
Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:

Spring is in the Air Gift Box Party Favor

Hi everyone! This month’s theme for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team we had to create a DIY project for a party, bridal/baby shower or any type of get together. I decided to create a project that could be used for a women’s retreat/conference or as a party favor for a women’s luncheon. I created a decorative box to hold a small notebook, pen and finger nail file. The notebook and pen comes in handy for note taking. 

I cut two pockets from the Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut. Since I wanted the box to be wider I used the Make it 3D Diecut and cut three sides. All of these diecuts where cut from a heavy kraft cardstock. I embossed the two pockets with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder and I lightly inked over both embossed images with a brown chalk ink. 

I didn’t cut the flaps of the pocket off but adhered those over the Make it 3D sides to make the box sturdier. I glued patterned cardstock to the inside before completely putting together. Around the outer sides of the box I adhered patterned cardstock.

Next I cut four of the middle size Heart and Soul Flowers Diecuts from patterned cardstock, shaped and glued together. I added a vintage flower doily that I had found at the Country Living Fair to the center a long with a button. I cut two sprigs of leaves from the Spring Leaves Diecuts, shaped and adhered to the back of the flower.

 I adhered flat-back pearls around both side of the box before adding the flower to the corner of the box.

I added a few flowers from my stash, along with pearl and tulle sprays and a cording bow to finish off the box. 

For more party and shower ideas from Eileen’s Inspiration Team you can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
