Tutorial Tuesday: Fold Over Gift Box

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!  I hope that your week is going well!  Can you believe that August is half-way over??  I have seen lots of Social Media posts about kids already going back to school; the kids in my area go back next week!  Eek!  I imagine that means that there's a lot of last minute shopping, meal-planning, and organization happening for many households.  (Or all households, really.  I mean, everyone has shopping, meal-planning, and organization to do!)

Well, I'd like to share with you a quick and easy 3D project that you may be able to utilize for this busy Back-to-School Rush!  I shared it with a group of ladies a couple weeks ago at a Crop Event and it was huge hit!

This multi-purpose Gift Box is super versatile!  You can use it if you want to present your kiddo's new teacher with a little summin'-summin' to start the year off, as a special way to present a home-baked cookie treat to a loved one in their lunchbox, or if you need a vessel to hold some trinkets around the house.



Isn't it sweet??  I originally acquired the box dimensions from Mary Fish and then I just embellished using the Daisy Delight DSP and added a beautiful 3D Daisy using the new Daisy Punch!  Shall we get started on today's Tutorial Tuesday?

Supply List:
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953
  • Whisper White Cardstock #100730
  • Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper #144137
  • Faceted Gems (Gold) #144141
  • Tear & Tape Adhesive #138995
  • SNAIL Adhesive #104332
  • Mini Glue Dots #103683
  • Bone Folder #102300
  • Paper Snips #103579
  • Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334
  • Daisy Punch #143713
Paper Dimensions:
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 6” x 11”
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Scrap piece large enough to punch two Daisies from
  • Designer Series Paper: (1) @ 3-3/4” x 3-3/4”, (3) @ 3/4” x 3-3/4”

Directions:
  • Place the 6” side of the Crumb Cake Cardstock along the top edge of the Scoring Tool.  Score at the 1” mark and the 5” mark.
  • Rotate the cardstock so the 11” side is along the top edge of the Scoring Tool.  Score at 1”, 5”, 6”, and 10”. 
  • Use the Paper Snips to cut along the red line as shown on the image below.
  • Fold along all of the score lines to “pre-fold” your box.  Turn the box over.
  • Using the Tear and Tape Adhesive, apply small strips onto your six 1” “flaps” you trimmed.  Now, assemble your box.
  • Using the SNAIL Adhesive, adhere your Daisy Delight DSP to the top, front, and sides of the gift box lid.
  • Using the Daisy Punch, punch out your two Daisy shapes, stack one on top of the other using a Glue Dot.  Use the Bone Folder to lightly curl the petals, if you wish.
  • Apply one last glue dot to the back of the finished Daisy and place on top of your box.
  • Finish with a beautiful Faceted Gem of your choice for the perfect amount of “bling”!

I hope you give this little box a go.  I used mine to hold some paperclips and other little embellishments in my Craft Area!  Let me know what you decided to use yours for!  I'd love to hear what you do!

Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel
