I know this thread says cards, but I wanted to do something different for today…….
Before I start with HOW TO…. here's the template
When you want to print this template: Save this pic to your computer and make sure that the settings of your printer says for paper size A4. I have several size options in my drop-down menu, and I have clicked Full page. So this template will fill the entire A4 size paper. You might want to print a trial version first.
So, let's get to it.
I started mine with, inking up all the edges.Then,using the Bo Bunny stamps that came in the kit, I stamped a border all around the bottom, using versa mark and white embossing powder. (heat set it) Then I stamped, using Archival ink, my images to the front.
On the back, I diecut a little frame (from TH Tag die) For texture, I added some Gesso to it,just dabbed it on with my finger. After it dried I glued it to my box and added the tiny labels with sentiment. To finish it up I placed some pearls.
As You can see, this box has a lot of potential and is awesome to give a personalised gift. You can adjust the hight by adjusting the middelest part of your template. You can decorate after your own liking and also choose any paper you want as long as you keep thickness in mind. You definitely want a sturdy box.
I hope you like it and give it a try.January 17, 2015 at 11:29 am #252220

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."January 17, 2015 at 1:30 pm #252222January 17, 2015 at 3:06 pm #252221January 17, 2015 at 3:55 pm #252219
So. Last night, I was putting the finishing touches on my layout – the first using the Bejeweled kit – and I was thinking that this paper would be perfect for something other than layouts and cards and I was trying to think of what that something could be. Obviously, I was reading Paulien's mind, or she was reading mine in advance, because this is perfect!!!!
And gorgeous to boot!!!!
Thanks so much for doing this Paulien !heart it's on my moost do list!!!!!January 17, 2015 at 4:58 pm #252223January 17, 2015 at 5:44 pm #252224January 17, 2015 at 6:27 pm #252225
