Cre8tive Hands Fans FB Challenge – Goody Bag

Another challenge has started on the Cre8tive Hands Fans Facbeook Group today…The watering can image is very cute…I could’ve made a card for this one but decided to make a goody bag…maybe a little something for a keen gardener…with some seasonal seeds in it…

I have followed the tutorial by Sam Donald on Pootles.co.uk….the dimensions for the box and video tutorial are on her blog so here’s the link for her Pretty Petals Gift Bag Box….I have made this box many times…it’s great for small gifts or treats like chocolates,cookies etc…

I have used a blue cardstock for the box and a printed lavender DSP for the front….The digi has been coloured in using Spectrum Noir Markers and placed on a bright yellow base mat….I have also stamped and cut out the sentiment banner and threaded it through the ribbon…

Post#80 Pinwheel on Giftbox

The pinwheel punch board from WRMK creates the best and fastest pinwheels that I have ever made…I was able to decorate the whole wall in my kids bedroom in an hour with colourful pinwheels in a lot of different sizes…I also bought the pinwheel attachments so I could try making a few working ones…so easy..
Today I tried to use the pinwheel(without the attachment) as a decoration on a gift box…This giftbox was made using the WRMK 1 2 3 Punch Board and then I used a string to tie the lid flaps…I created the pinwheel and used a brad to hold the flaps in the middle….and then used a strong adhesive to attach the pinwheel to the front of the box…
I think the box looks nice…Hope you think so too…

Post#72 Birthday Balloons Card

I love making bright colourful cards for kids…..and this card was made with a special little person in mind…
The card base is plain white and so is the top layer….there is a 2 inch strip of paper coloured in with distress inks placed on the center of the top layer….then I attached a die cut word ‘happy birthday’ near the base of the card…
Then I die cut three balloons in bright colours and attached a string on each of them and placed them on the card using adhesive foam squares…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#63 Gift Wrapped with Newspaper and Coloured Paper Snowflakes

From time to time I like to share something on my blog that non-crafters can try easily….this is one of them…
I really don’t like how we waste wrapping paper and keep thinking of alternative gift wrapping ideas….using a newspaper tops that list…….and here I have used coloured paper snowflakes to decorate …simple but effective as it takes the focus away from the newspaper…
This idea took shape when I was making paper snowflakes with my daughters for Christmas decorations last year…we used white copy paper for those…there were a few extras which I attached to one of the presents…and it did look good…so this time I tried the same with three 6″x 6″ coloured paper…they look like flowers in coloured paper so it’s good for any occasion…
I stuck these flowers/snowflakes on the newspaper using a basic glue stick…and tied a couple of coloured strings around the package…
Hope you will try these out and have a lot of fun making them…

Post#45 Tiny Birthday Card

Here’s another shaped birthday card…these kind of cards are a bit difficult to decorate but are good for a change from regular square or rectangular cards…and they can easily be attached to presents,gift baskets or floral bouquets….
The card base has been created using a scalloped square die…I like how the die has created an embossed border at the edge…to get this effect I had added a few shims of paper on top of the cutting plate while I was die cutting….without having to run it again through my Cuttlebug using an embossing mat…..
The front panel was stamped and only two of the edges rounded…The sentiment was stamped on a vellum paper and then die cut using a tag die…lastly I added a tiny piece of string through the tag…
Hope you like this card…

Post#39 Rosette Tag

Paper rosettes look so very beautiful……Previously I have made huge roesttes as wall decorations….made small ones to decorate presents and gift boxes…..and even few as decorations for our Christmas tree…so I this time I made one to decorate a tag…
This is a very large die cut tag…to make the rosette,I used an edge punch  on the full length of the paper strip before making score lines for the rosette…and since the paper rosette is the main feature of this tag,I did not add other things on it…
There is a simple best wishes stamp in the middle of the rosette…and a gold glitter tape under it…..ribbons and a bit of string finish the tag nicely…
Hope you liked it.

Post#21 Simple Gift Box

I believe that craft as a hobby does not need expensive products or a large investment…..Poster paper,glue and a set of paper edging scissors were the basic items I started with about seven years ago……as time passed I felt I should invest in equipment and tools for crafting…they are not essential..but they do make life a bit easy….
I do have a few of the WRMK punch boards now…..In fact my envelope punch board got used so much that I had to go buy another one….and the good news is that they made a much improved version of it….the 1 2 3 punch board…for making envelopes,bows and boxes..and a few more things…
This box was made using the 1 2 3 punch board and Kraft cardstock…took hardly any time at all…and great result…I attached a gold doily at the front and an orange flower punched out from layers of tissue paper …Added a gold string at the top to close the box…
Hope you liked it.
