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:

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…

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
.

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.

step7

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

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 🙂

Now.. lets talk a little about the supplies that i have used.

This is the first time i have used fun foils
To create both of my projects i have used, the
SIZZLING SILVER fun foil.

 

SIZZLING SILVER
these fun foils are super shiny and are of professional grade .
They work well with any lamination machine available,
if you want to heat transfer using these super shiny foils or
they can also be used with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils… which is great!!! since many of us do not have lamination machines at home, Craftyscrappers also have launched, the fun foil glue, that works perfectly with these fun foils.They come in 16 gorgeous colors to chose from as well.

 

 

Then i also used the amazing and one of a kind shimmer paste, that stand out from the rest of the products in the market.
The shimmer pastes that i used for the projects are

 

 

IMAG2797
SHIMMER PASTE-BUTTER

and

SHIMMER PASTE-TICKLED. 


These shimmer pastes add a fabulous layer of shimmer and shine to any craft project  and you can use any kind of stencils with these shimmer paste to create beautiful sparkling details and add the touch of beauty to any card, scrapbook or mixed media.
The best thing about them is that these can be used on paper, cardboard,chipboard,acetate, wood, glass,mdf,fabric and even on layered stencils.
These shimmer paste r so smooth and so shiny… that i love to work with it and the results are super-duper awesome.


To create my artwork. i have also used the
shimmer sprays.
The shimmer sprays that i have used for my projects are :



GRAPE JUICE(CS-SSP-04)_677x768
SHIMMER SPRAY-GRAPE JUICE

AND

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 :))

Possible image 1

 

 

Here’s a quick look  at the completed album.

So lets begin!
***(PICTURE HEAVY POST)

 


step1

I have Started with the mdf pregnancy album first which I bought from rakhi Mittal
and applied acrylic paint on the lady and  the corners too.

 


(This is how it will look…)

step2

 

Then, after the paint dried, I have cut the pattern papers according to the  measurements of the mdf album pages.
Then 
I covered the whole album and its pages with the  pattern papers.

 


(This is how they look…)

step3

 

After I finished covering the pages with the pattern papers, I took some  baby mdf embellishments  and applied a thick layer of gesso on all mdf cutouts.

 


(This is how they look…)

step4

 

After I finished with the gesso,
I took a white card stock and the beautiful pregnancy themed stamp,
“GREAT ADVENTURE”  from Craftyscrappers and stamped the image,
colored and fussy cut them.

 


(this is how it looks…)

 

 

 

 

step5

After I fussy cut the image , i then  applied a layer of  glossy accent on to it, to add dimension and shine to the image and left it to dry.


(this is how it looks…)

step6

 


After i finished with the stamped image, I started decorating the front cover of the album.
I took the mdf sentiment “so many happy memories” and coated it with gesso.
I  used the distress inks, spun sugar to add the color to the sentiment and  applied a thin coat of the shimmer paste,
“TICKLED” by craftyscrappers on to it. 
The shimmer paste r superb as it gives really nice dimensional effects!


(this is how they looks…)

step7

 


I then attached the “pregnant lady” that i previously stamped,colored and fussy cut, using some double sided foam tape,next to the mdf sentiment.
And positioned it to the left side of the album.
I then,took an oval shaped frame and decorated it with Craftyscrappers Mix mulberry flowers pack that i received in my DT KIT and stuck it on  the side of the corner, creating a beautiful bunch of flowers.
I also attached a butterfly on it, after applying a coat of  distress ink and ranger stickles to make it a bit shinny and also adhered a small piece of net under the flowers.
I also added  some mix embellishments (blings and pearls) and finished the page.

 


(this is how they look…)

 

 

IMG_20170905_1832047b7c7a

 

 

step8
Next, I decorate whole Album in a similar manner as i did before, i decorated all the pages with the pattern papers and embellishments.
In few pages i have also used another lovely stamp sets from craftyscrappers,
“SWEET BABY” and “LITTLE ONE” that has some really cool sentiments that is very useful when creating pregnancy or baby related albums.

 


(this is how they look…)
