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

  • 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: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

September Challenge: Drink More Water!

Do you drink lots of water?  I don't!  I've found that I am hard-pressed to get even 8 ounces of water in my body during the day and that is no bueno!   I was really beginning to see the signs of dehydration---including a lack of energy and irritability!  (Yes, that's a real thing!  Check out the symptoms of dehydration here ). So, I decided to do something about it.  I decided to start drinking more water.  And I read more about water. It's no secret that water helps with your overall health; like aiding in weight-management , energize muscles , balance the body's natural fluids and improve kidney function .  But, I was shocked at how much water can help with your skin!  And for someone who is kind of fanatic about their own skin (yes, I am!) I wanted to know more! Did you know that your skin is 64% water?  So, it's safe to say that your skin health is directly correlated with your water consumption.  In fact, dermatologists and doctors have seen that wa

Tip Tuesday: The Eyes Have It!

Did you know that when it comes to creating a stunning look with cosmetics, your eye shape  has quite a lot to do with that?  It's true!  Take myself, for example.  I am one of the blessed individuals with a Monolid  eye shape (thanks, genetics) so many of the gorgeous shimmery "peekaboo" looks for eyes with visible creases (which is all the rest of you folks!) I cannot easily achieve.  *Sigh*. And just like clothing, one size and one style does not  fit all!  (I could never wear a romper, my short little torso just can't handle that!)  So, today's Tip Tuesday is all about learning how to identify your eye shape and some cosmetic tips for applying your make-up to bring out the best  for your eyes! Let's get started with a couple tips to check out your eyes: Use a good mirror---a handheld is good, a stand-up is better, and a stand-up magnifying mirror is best! Lights, please!  Artificial lighting is fine, provided you have a clear view of your eye, ther
