Hi dear crafty friends! We’ve agreed in the past that creating boxes is fun! It’s also not very complicated. However circle boxes are a different story. So today I want to show you How to Create a Circle Box in an easy way!     How to Create a Circle Box 1. Start with cutting three strips of double sided cardstock measuring 12″ x 3″. 2. Score each strip on the 1/2″ line lengthwise and fold.     3. Cut one of the strips in half on the 6″ line width wise. Attach one long strip to one short strip to form one long strip. Repeat with the other two pieces so you’ll end up with two long strips. Make sure that the fold lines are in the same direction. 4. Cut two circles: one 5 1/2″in diameter and the other 5 3/8″.

Paper and Quilling Altered Frame

Hi dear crafty friends! How do you present your favorite photos? Are they tucked away in albums, are they framed and hanged on the wall? Today i want to share with you a Paper and Quilling Altered Frame I created to present one of my favorite family photos.     Paper and Quilling Altered Frame I started this frame with a shadow frame i got at IKEA. They come in a white color, which I didn’t like. So I covered it with gesso and then painted it with brown acrylic paint. When the paint was dry I added a little white strokes with a dry brush to create a vintage distressed look. The next step was to create the details. First I cut all the large pieces of flowers, butterflies and the background. I layered them all on the inside of the frame and around it. To create dimension I added the flowers on the inside and outside of the …

Hi dear crafty friends! Aren’t exploding boxes great fun?! I love them! Today I want to share my Exploding Box with Extras. It’s not a regular exploding box with empty pages to add photos it’s an upgraded exploding boxes with interactive moving parts inside! I created this project for Scrap & Craft and used Craft O’ Clock papers.     Exploding Box with Extras Exploding boxes are already interactive and fun, especially when you open them and they open to all four directions. I wanted to take my exploding box to the next level and make room for even more photos. So I added an interactive mechanism to each side wall of the box and its center.               In the center I created an accordion mini album that can fit photos on both its sides. On the sides I added flaps and pockets. These interactive mechanisms allow you to add many more photos to …

How to Create a Tunnel Book with Graphic 45

Hi dear crafty friends! Now that my two year term as a Graphic 45 Grand Ambassador is almost coming to an end I went over all the projects I made and realized there are some I didn’t share here. One of them is How to Create a Tunnel Book with Graphic 45.     How to Create a Tunnel Book with Graphic 45 But first a few words on tunnel books… Tunnel books are made up of a series of pages that are held together by folded strips of paper on each side. In fact, the sides of a tunnel book might make you think of an accordion. The overall effect of a tunnel book is to create the illusion of depth and perspective.       I created this book with the Enchanted Forest collection. Since it’s full of castles, princesses and all things fairy tales I thought it would be great to create a story in a box, …

It’s so easy to make you’ll be amazed!     One Page Box with Fussy Cut Embellishments For this project, I used the amazing Nature Sketchbook collection.

As long as you have images to fussy cut, you can create this box with any paper collection! When fussy cutting, use sharp scissors. Instead of turning the scissors while you cut, turn the paper. That’ll make the cutting faster and more accurate. It would be …
