Small Double Flip Top Box Place Name

Hi , everyone 😉

What a time its been since my last post !!!

Well I better now ( I popped a disc in my back) and we also had our Big 12 hour workshop on the weekend. OMG what a great time we all had.

Food, crafting, food, demos, more food, more crafting, more demos, more food and then we all went home with lost of projects finished.

So here is a little box that can go onto the Christmas table with the person’s name on it and something special in side for them when they open it.

It’s the same as the double flip top box only its very little. The finished dimensions are  2′ x 3′ x 1′. It has a belly band to keep it closed or it will stay closed all by itself.

Here are the measurements and video:

Base: 5′ x 6′    Score @ 1/2′ and 1-1/2′ on all four sides.

Lid: 4′ x 6-1/2′   Score on the 6-1/2′ side @ 1/2′ ,1-1/2′, 5′ & 6′

Score on the 4′ side @ 1′ & 3′

Then place the 6-1/6′ side into your trimmer and cut @ 3-1/4′ ( this gives you the two sections of the lid.

The paper and card stock use are: White Pines Paper and Colonial White card stock and I also used Cranberry ink.

I hope that you liked this little box 🙂 And over the next week or so, I will show you a few more little boxes for your table.

So till next time.

Keep on creating.

 

 

 

 

Centre Easel Card

Hi, everyone 🙂

Sorry I’m late with my blog, but I have been very busy the last few days, and haven’t had a chance to catch up yet.

So today I thought I would share the card that we made in my advanced class last fortnight.

centre easel card4centre easel card1

It’s called a centre easel card and it’s very easy to make.

I found the original on Pinterest and it had pumpkins and a wreath on it, and I thought that the Wavy Blooms D1651 would look good too.

I always seem to reach for this stamp set lately, as I just love the flowers in it.

I love this sponging technique as there is no wrong way to do it. Every time I do, it produce a different combination with the three colours that I have chosen.

Here are the instructions and how to video:

Instructions for the 5-1/2 x 4-1/4′ card

Card stock: 5-1/4’ x 8-1/2’’ score on long side @4-1/4’

Centre panel:3-1/4′ x 4-1/4′

White Daisy front panel: 3′ x 4′

Side panels: 4-1/4′ x 1-1/2’ cut 2

Banner: 1’ x 3-1/2’

the extra piece of card stock is 4′ x 8′

  1. Place the 5-1/2′ side of the card in the trimmer @ 1-1/2’ and cut down to the fold line. Move across to the 4′ mark and cut down to the fold line. This should give you two flaps on either end of the card.
  2. Glue these two, 1-1/2’ side flaps to the card , and attach the two side panels.
  3. Lay the card on the score board, so that the centre panel is on the left hand side, and score @ 2-1/8’ .
  4. Stamp a greeting on the White Daisy front panel. Just up from the middle.
  5. Attach the White Daisy front panel to the centre panel.
  6. Sponge three different coloured inks onto an extra piece of White Daisy card stock. Then stamp out some flowers of different sizes (I used ‘Wavy Blooms’ D1651 and the inks were:
  7. Hollyhock, Honey and Fern)
  8. Add glue to the 2-1/8’ bottom section of the card and attach the centre panel, so that it can swing up and down.
  9. Attach the flowers using glue on some, and 3D foam on others and attach to the centre panel so that they over hang the edges and spread out across the bottom of the card as shown (make sure that the adhesive is only on the area that is to be stuck to the card)
  10. Stamp onto the banner then dove tail. Add 3D foam tape to the back. Place this 1/2’ in on the bottom edge of card so that the easel can but up against it.

Instructions for the 6′ x 4′ card

Card stock: 6’ x 8’ score on long side @4’

Centre panel: 4’ x 4’

White Daisy front panel: 3-3/4’ x 3-3/4’

Side panels: 4’ x 1-1/2’ cut 2

Banner: 1’ x 3-1/2’

the extra piece of card stock is 4′ x 8′

  1. Place the 6’ side of the card in the trimmer @ 1-1/2’ and cut down to the fold line . Move across to the 4-1/2’ mark and cut down to the fold line. This should give you two flaps on either end of the card.
  2. Glue these two, 1-1/2’ side flaps to the card , and attach the two side panels.
  3. Lay the card on the score board, so that the centre panel is on the left hand side, and score @ 2’.
  4. Stamp a greeting on the White Daisy front panel. Just up from the middle.
  5. Attach the White Daisy front panel to the centre panel.
  6. Sponge three different coloured inks onto an extra piece of White Daisy card stock. Then stamp out some flowers of different sizes (I used ‘Wavy Blooms’ D1651 and the inks were- Hollyhock, Honey and Fern)
  7. Add glue to the 2’ bottom section of the card and attach the centre panel, so that it can swing up and down.
  8. Attach the flowers using glue on some, and 3D foam on others and attach to the centre panel so that they over hang the edges and spread out across the bottom of the card as shown (make sure that the adhesive is only on the area that is to be stuck to the card)
  9. Stamp onto the banner then dove tail. Add 3D foam tape to the back. Place this 1/2’ in on the bottom edge of card so that the easel can butt up against it.

I hope that you give this cute little card a go.

So ,till next time,

Keep on creating 😉

 

Double Flip Top Box

double Flip Top Box2

I just love this little box!

It’s easy to make, and you can make it in many different sizes.

I found the original on Crafty Caroline Creates, but I have changed the size a little bit so that I could make two box lids out of one sheet of Fundamentals paper.

The boxes in the picture are Sunset and Lagoon are from the  Adventure collection  and Black is from the Basic collection.

With the Sunset and Lagoon I have give then the same colour base in card stock, and the Black has a contrasting base of White Daisy.

Here are the instructions from my class and the video:

                 Double flip top box

Card stock for box base: 11’ x 8-1/4’

Score on all four sides @ 1-1/8’ & 2-1/2’

Fundamental papers for box lids: 12′ x 6’

Score on the 12′ side @ 3-1/2’ & 4-7/8’ then turn to the other end and repeat this score

score on the 6′ side @1-3/8’ & 4-5/8’ .

Then place the 12′ side in your trimmer @ 6′ and cut. This will give you the box lids.

  1. Fold and burnish all the score lines on the box base.
  2. Cut and notch the base as shown in the cutting guide down the bottom.
  3. Add glue to the small flaps and attach to the side sections to form the box.
  4. Add glue to the extra flap and fold over. This gives the box a sturdier top.
  5. Fold and burnish the score lines on the lid sections.
  6. Following the cutting guide down the bottom, cut the lid pieces.
  7. Place the side flap of the lid into your trimmer as shown in the pic and cut. Make sure that the front fold is on the 1/4’ mark and that the corner point on the other end is in the cutting channel.
  8. Add glue to the small triangle section and glue to the side sections as shown in pic.
  9. Add glue to the bottom tad.
  10. Gently place the lid onto one end of the box and fold the flap over and stick it to the bottom of the box as shown in pic. Repeat this step for the other end.

Someone was a total numpty head and forgot to add this in so that you could see how to cut the lid

Sorry about that… I should have proof read better than I did, instead of nicking off down to Shelley’s to do some crafting. Oh well better late than never, haha.

The red lines are the cut out and cut away sections .

The dimensions of this box are 3-3/8′ wide x 6-3/16′ long x 1-3/8′ deep.

I hope that you give this little box a go.

I shall put up some more different sizes in the next couple of week.

So, till next time.

Keep on creating 😉
