A little gift

 Just love this little guy from stamp fairy 
He has been coloured in using Crafter`s Companions Spectrum Noir pens.
 The backing papers are from Crafters Companions Winter Swalk CDI used some white pearl drops on his hat fur and pom poms , this was sprinkled with glamour dust to give a real sparkle not showing to good in the photo .
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the wall he is sitting on, the top part of this it has been scored on my score board to give a brick effect, then rubbed lightly with chalk inks to bring out the bricks.
I then added some glitter along the brick edges to look like frost
I then punched out some snow flakes and added a Christmas sentiment

Blog Background

Sorry back to plain old boring for awhile.
I just had an email from nitwits asking me to remove my background and header.
I had used items one of their kits that I bought a few months ago to make my Background.
They have asked me to remove it as they don't allow their stuff on the web
Seems a bit sill as I was only using it for my own personal use , and do not sell blog backgrounds for any profit.
When I put up the Background I always do a post linking back to their store to give them credit for their lovely designs.
Well if the powers that be don't want me to display their work, that's fine with me.
I will be adding another background when i have time to get one finished and uploaded

hated plain one , so found an old one in on my Pc that I had a few years ago.
so this will stay until I can do another

Gift box card tutorial

Gift box card
And open


A4 card – I have printed borderless onto both sides of my card,
I used two different patterns . But Card that co ordinates
with your topper will do.
8x8 inch or 20x20cm Card -I have printed onto this also.
Topper – Must fit 5inch or 13cm Square card, It can be birthday or
Christmas .
Acetate – 4 inches or 10cm square optional, but does look nicer
Scoring tools

step 1
take your A4 card cut the length down to 5 inches or 13cm
see photo.

Step 2
using boxer or other score board score at 5inches or 13cm, turn and score other end at 5 inches, or 13cm, fold and burnish edges it will look like photo

Step 3
take the 8inch or 20cm square card and score 3/4 inch and 2inches or 2cm and 5cm around all 4 sides. Fold and burnish all the score lines

Step 4
Look at your scored lines and at one edge of the card cut down from second score lines to second score lines, cut out the corners on both sides, see photo

step 5
at opposite end cut to match the photo,its easier to see than explain
this step,
fold in you are making a box shape, you will have to fiddle with the tabs that you just cut trimming of small bits to help it close .
see second photo , don t stick down yet.

How it will look folded ,This is the back view

Step 6
if you are using Acetate you will need to cut a hole in the centre of the front of your box, now because this is a small card if you fold in some of the scored edges this does go through my bigshot, so I was able to use one of my dies if, not you can just cut out a small centre square, stick acetate over the hole using DST .
You can see the scallop oval I cut in the step 7 photos below
If not using acetate just add another topper or embellishments to the front of the box, to make it pretty .

Step 7
fold up box, stick bottom the end with the tabs down with DST , to give the box its shape, DO NOT stick top of box.
Then put double sided tape all around the edges like in photo.
Stick to the inside back section of your folded card, see photo.

Step 8
Decorate the front of your box card with your topper and embellishments, to make pretty, I also decorate the inside cover with a pocket and some tags, or you can add another topper.
Fill box with scented tea light, or chocolates, even jewellery for Christmas or birthday presents .

Some Ferrero Collection have found their way into this box for a lucky someone.
Or add some Scented tea lights, or a jewellery gift would be very welcome im sure

Thanks for stopping by.
Please leave me a link if you make one of these, I would love to come see your creations
