Post#49 Origami box with lid

The very first gift box I ever made was an Origami box….Its so simple and I can make it at anytime and almost any size without looking for instructions…Even my kids can… 🙂
There are heaps of videos and tutorials on the net if you would like to make one……All you need is a square sheet of paper for the lid and another about 1/2″ smaller than that for the base….
Origami boxes can be made from any kind of paper….usually thin paper for easy folding…..but because I wanted to make a sturdy box I used card stock for the base….
Once the box was ready, I decorated it with three banners and a stamped sentiment ….
Hope you liked it…

Post#43 Hello Friend

This is my kind of card….simple and quick to make….needs only a handful of supplies….and the end result is as good as any other card…
Here I’ve used a Kraft cardstock to create the card base and stamped a very beautiful border stamp with white pigment ink…used a heat gun to dry the ink quickly…then I punched out circle shapes out of  shiny gold paper in various sizes and adhered them to the card…On one of these circles- the largest one- I stamped the sentiment…
Hope you liked it…

Post#30 Large Chevron Tag

A while ago I saw this very beautiful card on Pinterest….it used chevron die cuts in various colours placed together….then cut into strips and then glued again by slightly changing the positions of the chevron sections…the link has currently been blocked by Pinterest for some security issues so I can’t share the link here…but here’s the tag I made using that card as my inspiration…
I like how the chevron design looks so intricate by this simple process….I placed it on a very large die cut tag…added a ribbon and sentiment to finish the tag…
Hope you liked it…

Post#26 Bokeh Effect Card

A bokeh effect card background has been on my to do list for a very long time…every time I looked up a tutorial,I thought it wasn’t my cup of tea as it involved repeating a lot of steps which involved heat embossing etc……I wanted and easier and quicker version so I came up with my own technique for this card …
I started with a stencil and mustard seed distress ink and printed circles in various sizes all over one section of the card….then I did the same with clear Versamark ink and covered the rest of the section lightly with mowed lawn and shabby shutters distress inks and a bit of mustard seed distress ink as well….and lastly I used white pigment ink to lightly print a few circles here and there…
The sentiment is stamped on a circle and attached to the paper bow using a gold string…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#8 A Colourful Tag

Whenever I think of kids,I think of bright colours….so here’s a tag I made which would be just perfect on a present for a kid….or even someone vibrant and young at heart…
Tags don’t take long to make…and this one didn’t either….as soon as I had the colours for the banners chosen,it came together pretty quickly…
I used 2 base layers for the tag and embossed the top white layer with a chevron embossing folder….then attached the 5 banner strips….and then the gold and yellow butterflies….added a tiny stamped and punched sentiment near the bottom ..finally put on the ribbons and tadaaaa….the tag was ready…
Hope you liked the tag.
