Create a Card Box!

Hello there,

Well almost all the children/young adults back to school or college now, 1 to go on Monday so my posts may well get back to normal and  you'll see a little bit more of me!  (we still have 4 children/teenagers at home so the holidays are noisy lol)

Today I'd like to share one of my samples for the upcoming Create and Craft show next week....Crafter's Companion are back with show's starting at 8am on Monday with Create a Card A6 dies and some totally awesome Christmas Create a Card Accordion dies!  But, I'll share the Accordion samples later....I really want to share a box today.

I have made this style of box for the last launch, and it was so popular I was asked to write a tutorial showing how I made it for the Crafter's Companion Blog, (find it HERE) so I thought I'd make another but using an A6 Create a Card die ready for the show's next week.

The A6 Create a Card die's will fit in most die cutting machines vertically (expcept the Saphire) so this is a great box to make for pressies...

Here's what I used to make it...
Style: Tall Box
Die’sire Create a Card A6 Decorative Bell
Crafter’s Companion Matt Black card
Centura Pearl Hint of Gold
Crafter’s Companion Acetate
Crafter’s Companion Spray & Sparkle Iridescent
Collal All Purpose glue, Crafter’s Companion red liner tape

Easy Crystals

The Spray and Sparkle really makes a shimmer to black card!  Here's the close ups..

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you pop by again soon x
