I know I promised the dimensions for the voucher folder, but to be honest I can not find it. Chaos reigns in my scraproom at the moment. The new storage has been set up and looking good. But I just can not get motivated to sort out all my stuff and put it away in it's new home. Hope fully in the next couple of days I will sort and be able to post the dimensions.

Last week was my final blog entry at Remember When Paper Company. It was a great experience being a weekly blogger and would like to say thankyou to the Remember When girls for giving me a go. If you want the demensions and instructions on how to make the envelope and card holder above go to Remember When Paper Company.
I have something in the wind at moment for being a guest blogger for another company, so when I know more I will let you know.
At the moment I am working on a design for Chocolate Body Paint box. So keep your eyes peeled for that one.

Envelope Box

Today I made an envelope holder to store all my SU Envelopes. I got to have a play with my nestabilities - yippee. This is the first time I have made a box using Cardboard instead of folded cardstock. I was really happy how it turned out and keen to go down to my LCS to buy some more cardboard. I am adding dimensions and instructions incase you are interested in making this box. So here we go...

Stuff Needed
Cardboard (I used 1mm thk cardboard)
Printed Paper (Melissa Francis)
Stamp (Magnolia stamps)
Ink (SU)
Glue (pritt)
Card Stock (SU).

Step 1

Make out the above dimensions onto your cardboard and cut out. Click on image to get a larger view.

Step 2

Glue on cardstock of the inside of the box, then using a craft knife cut excess paper off. Do this to all of the cardboard pieces.

Step 3

Glue the wrong side of patterned paper to all the othersides of the cardboard, allowing ample space between each piece.

Step 4

Mark out then cut out the demensions of each space. It is important that the top side of each piece is cut out 1 cm from the cardboard edge.

Step 5

Glue both front flaps to the front of the box. Then back flaps to the back of the box.

Step 6
Cut 1 piece of patterned paper at 17cm long x 10.5 wide.
Cut another piece of patterned paper 17cm long x 14.5 wide.

Step 7
Glue these pieces to the front and back of box making sure that the paper overlaps the top of the box at exactly one centimeter.

Step 8

Fold and glue down the top lip on all sides.

Step 9
cut out another piece of cardboard measuring 16.8 cm x 7.8cm (this is allowing for 1mm thk cardboard - adjustsments will need to be made if your cardboard is a different thickness.)
Glue internal cardstock (the pink) on to bottom. Then trim oround the edge.

Step 10

Place cardboard into bottom then glue down the flaps.

Step 11

Stamp a picture and colour in. Then cut out an oval shape (this is where i got to use my nestibilities). Glue to front of box.

Hope you like.

What was I thinking...

What was I thinking. I thought I would re-arrange my scraproom. Get some new storage etc. OMG stuff is everywhere. There will be no creating from me for the next few days, just cleaning.

I have been eyeing off nestabilities for a little while now. They are so cool. The other day (thanks to Mr Rudd - I am doing my bit to boost up the economy :-))I bought some. I got the oval and circles in the plain and scallop. Once I have tidied up my area I will show you some of my creations using nestabilities.

Be back real soon (and hopefully with the dimensions for the gift voucher card)

Wee Little Box

Just a sneak peek of my project this week. If you want the measurements and instructions, pop over to Remember When This wee little box is the perfect size to fit in 1 Ferrero Rocher(F.R). The beauty of that is the minimum amount of R.F's you can buy is 1 for the box and 2 for you :-).

Back Again

Been back from my holidays for a couple of days now. Had a great time. Will fill you in on the details later. Tomorrow we are off to Bright for the weekend to spend some time away with Rob's family.

Been suffering from tonsilitis last week and a second bout started off again today, so not running on all cylinders at the moment.

This week at Remember When Blog I have the template and instructions on these triangle boxes. These boxes are super easy to make and are great for making en-masse, perhaps for Easter presents for your kids friends etc.

Off to bed for me now. Wishing you all a great weekend. And for those living in Victoria happy Labour Day for Monday.
