Tutorial Thursday – Gift Box



Hello everyone! Welcome to Tutorial Thursday!
ALLISON here with you today to share a tutorial with you!
Today’s tutorial is:  GIFT BOX

Here’s an easy to create gift box using one sheet of paper that you can customize with any of your favourite La-La Land Crafts stamps and dies.
Grassy Vine Die

Duck – YR24,YR31,E31,E50,YR09,YR16,YR12
Grass/Vines – YG23,YG01,YG0000
Card Stock cut to 8 1/4″ x 11 1/2″
Score Lines – 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″, 8 1/4″, 11″
2 3/4″, 5 1/2″
~ now for the tutorial you have been waiting for ~ 

Start by cutting a 12″ x 12″ sheet of card stock to 8 1/4″ x 11 1/2″.  Score along the 11 1/2″ side at 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″, 8 1/4″, 11″  Score on the 8 1/4″ side at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″

Cut both ends off along the score lines on the 1/2″ side leaving the center section.

Cut along both sides the score lines to the inside score line.  Each side will have 4 flaps once cut.
With the 1/2″ section facing left along the top cut triangles from the second and fourth panel.

Start to fold the panels in on the opposite side of the triangles.  Starting with the first panel beside the 1/2″ section fold in, add glue to the next panel and fold in to the inside of the first panel, continue till all the panels along the side are glued and folded in, always gluing to the inside of the panel before not the outside.

Once the panels are glued you will need to angle the corners on the 1/2″ piece on both sides, add glue and tuck inside.
I reshaped my triangles to skinnier triangles.   It’s up to you the shape you would like them finished at.  Once your shape is finished use a hole punch for a place to tie your ribbon.  You can leave the side square panels to close the box, you can also cut them off or glue and fold inside.  I left mine attached but glued in and used tissue paper so it was more of basket when finished.

Colour and die cut leaves, vines and glue all around the box.

Colour and die cut flowers and other elements and attach to box.  Finish with a ribbon.

We hope that you are inspired to try out your own creation with the amazing stamps and dies from La-La Land Crafts!

Two Peas In A Pod

Thanks for stopping by today! I made this sweet little tag using the adorable peas in a pod digital image from Streamside Studios using my Spectrum Noir Classique Markers.

For the tag I started with a white tag base. I layered a printed card stock panel then a ink blended tag on top. For the final layer I added the sentiment on a white stitched panel, a fence and some green vines tucked behind. I attached the peas in a pod with foam tape to give some added dimension.

Sharing some quick and easy tags today using these adorable Robots from Streamside Studios April Release.

For the next size down I stencilled and used Nuvo drops for the background. I also added a small half scallop die cut towards the bottom that I Ink blended to match the bottom tag.

I finished the tags with the smallest tag on top. I Ink blended it to match the bottom tag and added the robot with foam tape to the top as well as the sentiment. The images were coloured in Copics.

I hope you enjoyed these tags as much as I do.

One in a melon

With summer just around the corner it’s a perfect time to share this new digital image from Streamside Studios

This little digital sweetie comes with the watermelon behind her as well as a separate image of just her and some fun sentiments.

Here’s the steps to create this card.

Start by die cutting a circle card base.

Add a stencilled die cut circle that’s slightly smaller then your base on top.

Add a scalloped circle that is approximately the size of the image.

Any gaps between the scalloped frame and image I glued white card stock behind.

Die cut and colour some flowers, and add the sentiment on top of coloured card stock.

I finished the card with some fruit embellishments.

Copic colours used

Miss you fairy much!

It’s the first of the month and I was so excited for this months release at Streamside Studios

There is so much to love in this release. Today I’m using this gorgeous fairy coloured in shades of orange and purple.

To make this card

I started by die cutting two stitched rectangles, one in orange and one in white.

The orange one I attached to my card front. On top of the orange panel I added the white one with stamped out hearts coloured in orange and the sentiment heat embossed in clear over black ink.

I coloured the flowers and fairy in Copics in the colours YR09,Y38,Y32 and for the purple in BV01,000,0000.

I fussy cut all the images and glued to the top of the white panel. I trimmed off the excess stems hanging off the bottom. The front one flower was attached with foam tape so I could tuck the fairy in behind as well as the butterfly, fairy and fairy wand. I also tucked some leaves behind and adhered with liquid glue.

I hope you love this Set as much as I do. You can find these adorable images at Streamside Studios
