Concertina Fold Panel Card - Video Tutorial


Today I'm sharing two Videos. If you are interested in the Box only, scroll right down past the Measurements for the card and you will find the details :o)

I think this is one of my favourite projects for this year! I've thoroughly enjoyed creating these cards.


Both cards shown in this post use the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series paper - which I am in love with. It's just so beautiful. Each sheet has Copper foiling on one side and that makes it so special and luxurious!


I used the coordinating Christmas Gleaming stamp set to decorate the cards. The colour combination used here is Night of Navy, Copper and Very Vanilla.


You do need 12" paper to complete this project. I used the beautiful Copper Star sheet for the entire card. The centre concertina piece is the pattern on the reverse of it.


This is a top view of the card. This version of it is very dimensional, which is why I made a box to fit the card. Closed the card measures 6" x 5".


I added a panel on the reverse of the card where you can write your message.


This is the card and box that I made in the Videos. I used another beautiful sheet of paper, this time in Pretty Peacock and Copper. This one has to be my favourite. 

When creating it, I did make a pretty big mistake. Instead of using Pretty Peacock ink for the stamping, for some reason I used Night of Navy again! I've corrected it now though and am much happier with the project :o)


Look at that Copper shine! It's just lovely! Until this paper pack came along I wasn't a fan of Copper, but that has definitely changed now. 

The colour combination I used for this card is Pretty Peacock, Copper and Very Vanilla ....


In the Video you will see me use Night of Navy ink. It wasn't worth re-doing it for that one mistake :o)


Here is the Video for the Card ...

Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box - Santa, Elf and Penguin - Video Tutorial


Today's Video will show you how I created these super cute Mini Curvy Keepsakes Boxes.

They are quick and easy to do and if you haven't got the exact dies or punches I use, I'm sure you have something else that will work just as well :o)


Aren't these Santa Boxes sweet? The box was cut from Real Red cardstock.

I created the Silver Buckle by using another of the small dies (the snowflake outline) from the Mini Curvy Keepsake set. 

I just used a bulk standard office hole punch to create the Black Buttons. Alternatively you could use the larger hole punch on your Cropadile or a 1/4" circle punch. 

The Belt is a strip of Basic Black card measuring 1cm (3/8") deep.

All the sentiments used come from the coordinating Tiny Keepsakes stamp set.


The Elf Box is identical to the Santa one but cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock. I used Gold Foil for the Belt Buckle this time and Gold Embossing Powder for the sentiment. 

The Tag dies used also come from the Mini Curvy Keepsakes die set.


These little Penguin Boxes are my favourite! They are just so cute!

I cut the Boxes from Basic Black card. The tummy was created by using one of the Layering Oval dies, cut in half. You could use any Oval punch or die of a similar size for this.

The little Heart I used for the Beak and the tiny Flowers used for the Feet come from the Written Words die set. Again you could use any small heart punch/die for the Beak. The feet would work punched with a 1/2" circle punch or you could use any simple shaped Flower punch/die to create them.

I used my Office hole punch for the Black in the eyes again. The larger White circles were created using a retired 3/8" circle punch. If you still have our retired Owl punch you could use that instead. Or you could just punch out White circles and draw Black circles in the centre.
