Pics from Yesterdays Craft Class - Just love these boxes!!!!!

Just thought we would share with you some pictures from our class yesterday.  We had been asked to make Masculine cards with Fathers Day coming up on the 19th June and after looking through our craft stash, we had lots of stamps and embellishments for golfers & footballers but not everyone is into sport so we thought we would go for the neutral look instead.

Treat Boxes

These were made by die-cutting 2 Sizzix Ornate Frame shapes and embossing them using the Cuttlebug Dots Embossing folder.

We then made the boxes by cutting 2 rectangles ( 1 = 14cm x 10cm & 1 = 13.5cm x 10cm) and scoring all 4 sides at the 1" mark using our Hougie Boards.  Once all the lines had been scored, we then cut along the long edge joins to allow us to fold up the flaps to make the boxes.  All joins were then sealed using double sided tape.

We also used a Dovecraft 1.5" circle punch to add shape to the top box (lid).  Once the boxes were made, double sided tape was then added to the bottom of both boxes and secured to the Ornate Frame Die Cuts.

As a finishing touch, ribbon was then added to the top box for decoration.  The class then decorated the top of the box as they wished.


With this class we thought we would go for a sketch layout and work through a simple but versatile card structure - what do you think?  We also got the class to try out our new Card Candi for the embellishments:

We would love to see your creationz made using this layout - please send us a link to your blogs or upload a photo to our Facebook page -
