Tutorial: Christmas Box & 3D Tag

Here on the blog last week during our Crafter's Christmas Wishes event, we shared this pretty box that Trena made, and now we want to share a tutorial on how she made it.

Step 1: She stated by making her own pattern paper with stamps, inks and sprays.   She sprayed color onto two sheets of Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock with Fireworks Sprays summer sky, danabe blue, grape jelly. The sparkle is so pretty!

Step 2: After it has dried completely, stamp images from Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Ornate Snowflakes with Delicata Silver Shimmer Ink Pad.

Step 3: Using The Ultimate Craft Tool, score the printed paper with Box Lid - line 5.  Creased the fold using the emboss tool to give for a nice professional fold.  Line up the scored edge of the cardstock on the surface of The Ultimate and scored again at line 5.  Repeat two more times for a total of four folds to complete the four sides of the box.  Trim the thin edge to reduce the overlap & use strong adhesive to secure.  Make the top & bottom lids.

There are several size gift boxes you can make with the tool. Trim off a portion to fit the gift. 

Step 4: To make the ornament, cut eight circles with the 1,7" circle using Die'sire Essentials Dies - Circles. Fold each circle in half with the right side inside, score it with the double ended scoring and embossing tool that comes with The Ultimate Crafter's Companion Tool.  Edge the cardstock circles with Silver Metallic ink.

Step 5: Adhere the circles together - 2 circles at a time by placing Collall All Purpose Glue the un-stamped side. Do this for 4 circles each to create two "halves." Use a clothes pin on each half to hold them in place. After they dried,  in the center of one half, lay down a line of glue and positioned a piece of twine with a small embellishment, and then glue the two halves together make the round ornament.   Once again use a few clothes pins to hold them together until dry.

Using the pegs on the Ultimate Crafter's Companion Tool for a perfect bow.
