Ho Ho ....

hello everyone, Sue here with a Christmas card featuring Avery Alle's North Pole stamps and matching dies.

Love the little Santa hats  with the attached sentiments, having the dies makes it quick and easy to produce a cute card.

Here's how:

  • Trim, score and fold smooth white card to make a 5.5" x 4.25" side fold card.
  • Trim a second piece of white card to measure 5.25" x 4" .
  • Using a Scor-Pal, emboss a line 1/8" from the edge of this panel on all four sides.
  • Stamp the North Pole sign to the left side of the above panel. Colour with Prisma pencils blending with Zest-It.
  • Using Memento Tuxedo black ink stamp Santa to a scrap of white card. Colour as above, leaving his beard and coat trim clear. Using the matching die and a die cutting machine cut the image.
  • Stamp the sentiment and Santa's hat in Memento lady bug ink Select the matching die and cut as before.
  • To add the Diamond dust to Santa's beard, coat and hat trim use Art Glitter Dries Clear adhesive.
  • Adhere the completed Santa and Hat to the card panel with more Dries clear adhesive.
  • To complete the card front add a little glitter  to the top of the sign board and along the bottom of the panel.
  • Pop the completed panel up using Scrapbook Adhesive 3D foam squares.

Thanks so much for taking the time today, I know it's a busy, busy time :-)

"Folded Gift Box Tutorial" by Narelle

Hi everyone

Today I have a tutorial for you showing you how to make these cute little gift boxes that are made from a single sheet of paper.  I have played around with the measurements and got them to numbers that are really easy to remember so that once you have made one or two you wont even need to look at the template any more- and you'll be able to make them in your sleep!  I managed to make 10 in about 90 minutes!


*  Trim 10cm off one side of a full sheet of scrapbookbook paper.
*  Score the paper as shown below, at 12.5cm and 22.5cm. then rotate the paper and 5cm and 15cm.  

 *  Fold along the lines shown as solid lines on the template. then tun the paper over and fold the lines shown as dotted lines on the template.

*  Bring the two ends to the top and the box will come together!
*  Cut a 5cm piece from the left over paper, fold in half and use to seal over the top of the box.  You could punch holes and tie string through this, put a brad through it, staple, use double sided tape to secure etc.
*  Embeliish the box as desired.
