Stampin' Up! Treat Box Specialty Paper Bridesmaid

I have had a child free day today so I thought I would share this treat box with you. I made this at a workshop I did last night. 

I love this Specialty Paper Bridesmaid cardstock, the possibilities with it are endless. It is foiled which gives it a fantastic shine, it also provides patten and texture to the paper. It comes in a pack of 10 with two different patterns. The foil  foil imprinting resists the ink leaving striped or filligree paper in any colour you choose.

So here we go the first thing that you will need to do is cut the cardstock at 10cm by 20cm.

Next choose the colour ink you want to transform your paper into, in this case I chose Rose Red.

Ink up your brayer, turn the ink pad sideways, it quicker as it fits the brayer perfectly.

Now you are ready to colour the card stock! You will need to go over it several times to get good coverage.

Clean off the ink that has remained on the foil with a piece of kitchen towel, this will bring up the shine.

Now score at 10cm, mark each end at five and then score from the mark to the 10 cm score line.

You should end up with something that looks like this.

Now bring the box together and punch holes in both sides

Thread ribbon through the holes to close the box

You are done. All you need to do now is fill your treat box with treats!!!

I can not take credit for the box design, I have been making it for a while and I can not remember the original source.

Stampin' Up! Altered box

Just a quick project I did with my daughter this afternoon. The box was from poundland... and yes it was really only one pound! The letters are the On Board Loads of Letters which we used a sponge dauber on with Rose Red ink. We then clear embossed them. The background paper is from the Sweet Pea stack in the mini catalogue as are the felt embellishments.

Stampin' Up! Christmas box

HI all it has been a while since I have posted.... but I have been busy with the kids and with creating! I know it may be a bit too early to start thinking about Christmas but for us crafters it is never too early!!! This is a Christmas box that could be filled with sweet treats or a small gift. This is not my idea and the tutorial for it can be found here what a great little box it is and the tutorial for it is very easy to follow.

Supplies Used:- One sheet of 12x12 kraft card stock, patterned paper and cardstock from the I wish scrapbooking kit and old olive satin ribbon.
