Mini Wine Bottle Gift Box - Video Tutorial

I was asked about a tutorial for an old project of mine, which was a mini wine bottle sleeve.  That was a project for which I used the retiring Gift Bag Punch Board.

Well it got me thinking about coming up with something new which didn't involve any type of punchboard.   A trawl around Pinterest inspired me (as it always does).   I saw a box like the one in my photo below.  I couldn't see any instructions, so set about creating one for myself.

The closure around the top has been created by me using the 1/2 inch Circle Punch.  By golly, I have always found that little punch to be super useful, but for this project it was worth its weight in gold.  I absolutely love how my box turned out.


I have decorated this box using some pretty papers from the Bird Ballad 12x12 inch DSP pack of papers which will be available to order from 4th June.

I do hope you like it.   I have made a step by step video tutorial which can be found on my popular YouTube channel, along with all my other video tutorials.   If you haven't already subscribed, then I would love you to do so.



That's it from me for today.   Thank you for visiting.....and I hope you will make a return visit.

Bye for now.   Happy weekend everybody, and .............................."Happy Stampin!".

Top Closing Box with Intricate Foil Detailed Lid - Video Tutorial

I have had this box in mind for sometime now, but yesterday it finally came to fruition.



Foil is trending in the cardmaking world. I thought I would create something using some Champagne foil card as a pretty accent for a box project.

The box I have designed has an intricate die-cut panel on the lid, and has a layer of foil card set behind it to highlight the beautiful floral pattern, which was created using the Detailed Floral Thinlits.



It’s a top-closing box and is a really useful size too, measuring 5 x 3-5/8 x 1-3/8 inches.

I have included a cheeky sneaky peek of the Butterfly Wishes Cling stamp set which will be available to order from 4th June.  The little butterfly stamps from the set coordinates with the Duet Butterfly Punch


I have made a step by step video tutorial:-



I do hope you like it.  Thanks for popping by and I hope you will pop back.

Bye for now .....and “Happy Stampin!”

Free As a Bird, Bird Ballad DSP & Stampin' Blends - Card Making Made Easy

Really, all it takes to make a pretty card is beautiful stamps with some coordinating DSP and card stock and a soft colour pallette.

For the focal point of this card I simply stamped my line of cute birds in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto some Petal Pink card stock. 



I had already selected my background papers, so I coloured my birds to coordinate with that, using Stampin' Blends in shades of Petal Pink, Pool Party, Old Olive and Crumb cake.

Using Petal Pink Blends on the birds breasts worked really nicely, because tone on tone is such a nice subtle effect.   It served to just slightly deepen the Petal Pink colour of my card stock.

Then I die cut my stamped image and a layer of Whisper White card stock with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and added my layers to a Whisper White Note card.

I should add that the stamps and DSP are part of the beautiful Bird Ballad Suite which is coming soon.

I was so pleased with the result that I decided to make a little batch of them.


If you like the look of this project and the items used, then you will be happy to hear that they will be available to order from 4th June, following the release of the 2019/21 Annual Catalogue.

I just thought it would be nice to tease you with another little sneaky peek.

That's it from me for today.  I do hope you like my cards and that you will pop back for another visit.

Bye for now, and "Happy Stampin!" everybody.

Slimline Candy Bar Shaped Gift Box - Video Tutorial

The style of this box really caught my eye a little while back when I saw my first one which had originated from Samantha Clayton at Mixed Up Crafts.

I have admired all the different variations in size and design that I have seen popping up since then, and decided that I would like to have a go at downsizing the design to make a slimline version to hold a bar of Galaxy - and this is it:-


The beautiful DSP (Designer Series Paper) that you can see here is from the Magnolia Lane 12 x 12 DSP which will be available to order from the new annual catalogue from 4th June.

I have made a step by step video tutorial, just in case you feel like you may like to have a go at making one yourselves.



Thanks for looking.   I would like to wish you a Happy Weekend and ..........."Happy Stampin!".

Bye for now.
