It’s a fun gift box and as Diwali is arriving it could be a perfect gift for anyone.
 It can hold 4 items and that too in such a small space!

Here’s a look at the completed Tower Box:

2.jpg

Possible image 1

So let’s begin with the pic-tutorial…
 

step1

I started with a black thick sheet of paper measuring 12.5 by 6 inches.
Here 0.5 inches (in 12.5) is for securing box so that it could close well, so for further measurements keep this 0.5 aside & all measurements will be done with 12 inches only.
 
sd1.jpg

step2

Now score it as shown in the picture below:

 
df1.jpg

Divide 12 inches into 4 parts of 3 inches & 6 inches into 4 parts of 1.5 inches.
White boxes running diagonally is the space to glue smaller paper boxes. In rest of the space glue pattern paper of your choice.

 
Here is the picture after adhering the pattern papers…

3.jpg

step3

 
These are the pattern papers i have used…


 

Pattern papers used here are from “Paper Designer” & “Papericious” these are available at www.craftyscrappers.in
step4
 
Now let’s make smaller boxes, for this I picked 4 thick pattern paper sheets of 6 by 6 inches.
Took one and scored it horizontally & vertically as per the measurements shown below

 

gf1.jpg
step5
Crease the lines using bone folder or ruler & glue the ends together
.
 
 
fgh.jpg

Repeat the same for remaining three boxes.

 

step6

Also prepare the lid using same process but with 6.1 by 6.1 inces, mid section of 3.1 inches & sides of 1.5 inches each.


fdf.jpg
 
step7

Now let’s work on the front side of the box…
I glued the pattern paper pieces to it.
 
4.jpg
 

step8

 

Added the sparkling SHIMMER PASTE-SONOMA using
the BRICK STENCIL from Craftyscrappers.


It was so easy to use this small stencil, Craftyscrappers have an option to customize stencil size of your choice, isn’t that great to get as per your requirement.

Here’s how it looks, once shimmer paste applied:

Look at this lovely shade in yellow…totally sparkly!!!

 

step9

Added some color splatters in blue & black…

step10
 

Now glued the smaller boxes inside to the main sheet..

Embellish the box as per your choice,
I added this cute stamped image,  to the paper dolly die cut.
This cute mini stamp set “BOUQUET OF HAPPINESS” is also from Craftyscrappers
and  is designed by me 🙂

Here are some of the close-ups:

Coming back to today’s tutorial now….
We often give out gifts to kids for birthdays or even as birthday return gifts.
How about making environment-friendly treat bags to give these gifts.

MAIN.jpg

 
Today, I am going to show you how to make pretty treat bags using two
stamp sets – Hogs & Kisses and Peek-a-boo.

IYY

Possible image 1
 
Here’s a look at the completed treat bags!

MAIN.jpg

 
po.png
  • A4 sized colored papers
  • Stamp sets (Peek-a-boo and Hogs & Kisses)
  • Archival ink
  • Zig clean markers (or your choice of colors)
  • Scrap papers
  • Satin ribbon/twine
  • Foam adhesive
 
Possible image 1
A step-by-step pictorial guiding you in making your own treat bags.
so lets begin…

step1

1.jpg

 
I took an A4 size paper. 
(The paper size would depend on the size of your gift.)
Folded half-inch margin at one edge.
Folded the remaining paper into half.

 
step2

Folded /Scored half an inch at the one end of this folded paper
and one and a half inch at the other end. 

2.jpg
step3
 Opened the sheet and cut the marked parts. 
 
3.jpg
step4
 
On cutting/trimming the marked parts, you get a sheet with scored sides.
 
4.jpg
step5
 I took Archival ink and my favorite stamp sets.
I took two images from the stamp set and stamped the images randomly all over the sheet (rotating the image randomly) Let the ink dry before the next step.

step6
Here, I have used different colored papers to make the treat bags. You can also use a white sheet and lightly color these stamped images. 
 
5.jpg
step7
 
Once the ink dried, I adhered the adhesive tape to the two margins on the sheet. Peeled open the tape and assembled the treat bag by bringing in the sides together. The one and a half inch margin remain open as it is the lid/cover of the treat bag.  Repeated the process with all the three bags.

6.jpg
And the treat bags are ready…. 
 
7.jpg
step8
To decorate the treat bags….
On a watercolor card-stock, I stamped the critters from the Hogs and Kisses stamp set, using Archival ink. Colored the critters with zig markers and fussy cut them. 
 
8.jpg
step9
Cut tags from scrap pieces of CS. 
Assemble the tag using the fussy-cut critters and the sentiments. 
 
9.jpg
step10
Now fill the treat bags, tie a ribbon/twine around it to close it. 
Tie the tag along with the ribbon/twine.

FUN FOILS CARDS: a brief tutorial!

Hello Friends…
 
Hope you had an awesome weekend..
 
Here I’m back at Craftyscrapper’s blog with some fun cards using
Craftyscrappers FUN FOILS and SHIMMER PASTES ...
nj

This is the first time I’ve used foil in my cards and I really love the outcome…..
Craftyscrappers shiny transfer foils are professional grade and are proudly made in INDIA, and these super glitzy foils , add Stunning Sparkle and shine to your craft projects.

What stopped me till now was the investment in laminator machine for foiling….
But these fun foils are really fun to work with.
You don’t need any fancy tools for this..
They can be used with a lamination machine and also work like a charm with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils to your craft surfaces.

So Let’s see what I came up with…

These are three cards i made using the fabulous supplies from Craftyscrappers.

  • Then, I applied crafty glue over it evenly with sponge and removed the stencil carefully.(craftyscrappers also have fun-foil glue that works perfectly with the transfer foils.)
  • After that I placed Sizzling Silver Foil  over it and pressed it first with my hands and then by passing it through the big shot.
    Remove the extra foil….
    Now,your foiled background is ready to play with.
  • I sprayed this foiled card stock with Grape Juice Shimmer Spray and immediately wiped it with baby wipes.
  • Finally decorated it with some die cut sentiments and sequins.

step1
Prepare Surface

I took a empty glass Jar, cleaned it’s surface properly and applied a coat of gesso.
A layer of gesso makes the surface ready for painting. 

 

Empty jar and gesso (before)


 
After one coat of gesso
step2
Paint the background
 
Once dried, I painted its surface with white chalk paint ( you can use acrylics too) using sponge and let it air dry.
 

 
After applying chalk paint
 
step3
Add Texture

Then I added the texture with Crafty Scrappers “Shimmer Paste” ( color – Dreams) using “Rose Bunch” stencil. You have to be very patient while doing this step…
I applied the Shimmer paste one side at a time and before applying it to another side ,
I let it air dry ( You can use heat gun to fasten this process :))
 
 
Close up to show the shimmer

 

 

step4
Embellish it

I have used Jute chord, Metal charms,
Mulberry Roses & Crystal beaded Pollens
from Crafty Scrappers
to decorate my jar.
