Elegant Gift Box Tutorial

My stampers had a blast making this easy Elegant Gift Boxes and my last Technique Class and I hope you do too!

This box measures 3 x 5 inches and is 1-1/2 inches deep. I fell in love with the box when I saw a video by Pootles in the UK. I made a couple of changes to make it easier to open. Take a look at the video below and see how easy it is to make. After I made the first one I couldn’t stop and made 4 more!

Blooming Basket Bundle Card Made Easy!

Every time I saw a card made with the Blossoming Basket Bundle I cringed at the fussy cutting needed if you wanted the basket and flowers to pop. Then I figured out that if you use the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch you can almost get a perfect cut of the inside part of the handle. Then there was the coloring of the flowers…not so hard with my messy blending technique.

Take a look at the video and see how it’s done.
