Beautiful Gift Box using Magnolia Blooms - Video Tutorial


Good Morning! :o) 

Today's Video will show you how I created this lovely Gift Box. It's a great size, measuring 6" x 4" and is 3" tall.

I used some of the Woven Threads Designer Series Papers for this. As soon as I saw this paper in the catalogue I knew it was for me :o)

One thing that attracted me - apart from the designs - is that the colours used in the pack are all the new In Colours! I used Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose for this project.


In the Video I show you two different ways to create the Base. I cut down a 12" x 12" sheet for mine, which is the easiest and quickest way to create it. But not everyone always has the right colour in that size of card. So ... I also show you how to create it using standard size card (A4 or 8½" x 11").


In my previous Video I showed you how to make gorgeous large paper flowers. The one I've used for the top of the Box is one of them. If you haven't seen that Video you can find a link to it HERE.

I used the Magnolia Blooms stamp set for the panel underneath the Flower. You can find this set in our Beginner Crafter Brochure (link in my left hand sidebar). I used the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set just to create the large leaves for the Flower.

Here is today's Video ...

Beautiful - Large Paper Flowers - Video Tutorial


Hi There! :o) Another Bonus Video for today - I'm trying to build up to two a week ... so you will see additional Videos more often now.

Today's is a little different. No project as such, just these gorgeous Flowers.

They are all so pretty and very simple to do.


The first one (top left) is the only one that uses all dies and it's the smallest Flower of the set.

I used the Magnolia Memory dies - they coordinate with the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. The five dies needed are shown in the above pic. You just need to cut one of each.


These were some variations I created. The first two use vellum instead of Whisper White card. Two different techniques were used to apply the colour. I used a Sponge Dauber for the first one and Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers for the other two. Both techniques are shown in the Video.


The centre of the second Flower is the first Flower. An extra layer has been added underneath it using the Hot Air Balloon punch.


These next Flowers were created using the Balloon Bouquet punch .... together with the 1" Circle punch for the second Flower.


And this one? ...... well isn't it just gorgeous? This is the last Flower but with an additional layer underneath created using the Hot Air Balloon punch. Honestly the variations are endless .... and all just lovely :o) I hope you'll give some a go ....



Here is the Video ...

Sailing Home - Pop-Up Panel Card


Here we are with another Pop-Up Panel card! These are soooo easy to do, I've added my Video below just in case you want to try one.

You can find my other Pop-Up Panel cards HERE and HERE.

Today's uses the Sailing Home suite of products .... another of my favourites from the catalogue!


I stamped the Birds directly onto the White panel and then embossed it with the Subtles folder. I know I probably use this too much, but it's fabulous and I love the effect you get with it.


When the card is opened you see the gorgeous four panels inside. The middle two pop-up. I used the Stitched Ovals and the Layering Ovals for them this time ... I think they look great using the two different sizes too :o)

I used the Aqua Painter and ink pads for the colouring.


This one was created in exactly the same way as my others. I kept the middle two panels raised even when the card is flat to stop the score line bending back the wrong way once the card is open.

I used quite a lot of different products for this card, I didn't hold back at all :o) Remember that you don't have to use everything I did to create a similar card with a similar 'look'. 


You can write your message on the back panel.

If you would like to have a go at making one of these, here is the Video I created for my first card ...
